This is all about Thayer Evans.
This is how he rolls.
SI knew all about his histrory prior to allowing him to publish.
If money was offered in connection with the "investigation", heads should roll, REGARDLESS of the facts about TM7.
Plalnly unethical

Good thing I already cancelled my subscription. SI has been shite for the past couple years, not what it used to be.

fricking liberal agenda sports yellow journalism at its core.

They have this article slamming TM7 and LSU about using his likeness to sell tickets/make money at a nightclub...
Then put his fricking pic on the cover...
to sell fricking magazines...

Hypocrisy much?

Yeah, much as it sucks, you have to ask yourself: If we weren't talking about LSU, who would you believe? A writer for SI or some shady guy running a shady club? I find the $2500 part of the story to be extremely suspect.


When it comes to Thayer Evans, I'll take the club owner. Thayer has been let go from numerous jobs in the past due to shoddy writing and I am shocked that SI would even consider him for an article. I've already posted a few times in here about Thayer so I don't need to say much.

My subscription just ran out last month and this gives me reason to not renew it if "writers" like Thayer are getting main story pub in it

I haven't read the article yet...but I do find it interesting that they chose the word "Perilous" on the cover...sounds like a former player's name, no?

I work in the media and have for years - publications that charge subscriptions have to make money and they have to sensationalize the story so it sells magazines, newspapers, etc.

They will "stretch" the truth to make the story juicier. If it were an uninteresting story, no one would buy the publication.

j/s

True. And again, since SI is run by CNN, they tend to be okay with stretching the truth to the point of it absolutely butchering the truth. Watch any one of AC360's "investigative" reports. They all look groundbreaking, but they are in fact, bull shite.

To a degree. Subscription costs normally don't cover much more than what it costs to produce the product. Ad sales are the money maker. I wouldn't go so far as to paint SI as one of these sensational publications, but if Thayer is what everyone says he is, there was a terrible call in judgement on hiring him and then allowing this story to run.

So.....
The family refuses to talk to SI and eventually have to hire legal counsel for a cease and desist order.
SI gets pissed and goes out looking for something to write about somehow coming across the Palace issue.
Then change the intent of the article from TM7s life story to what is it now as retribution for the family's declining to be interviewed ?

If anything goes wrong, attack the liberal straw man.


This whole story is hilarious. I'm not exactly convinced by the veracity of a bunch of seedy club owners, but nevertheless I hope it blows up in SI's face.

I am telling you right now that there are forces working against LSU. I am 100% convinced and they are working double time to destroy the lsu program. And who could that be? I have an idea, bu will keep it to myself.

Are you kidding me? Stupid fricking statement that shows your blind adherence to outdated talking points. Characterize yourself as a dumb fuk.

Not what I was thinking. For 2 years now, it seams scandles are either leaked or fabricated. I know of one sec program that for whatever reason stays sparkly clean and has the clout, and desire to win at all cost. That's all I am saying. Yes, I am a nutbag.
