re: Shame on the Reveille for its predatory journalism


Would Tiger Woods affair have been reported if he were a world class nuclear physicist?

It's called being in the public eye, and when you are in the public eye you have to be more careful.

I really do hate people who blame the media for shite like this. If Blue hadn't said it, it wouldn't be an issue. And don't say Reveille isn't media, they are, but they are small time mostly. I bet people wouldn't be bitching if this ran in the Advocate or on WAFB/WBRZ

Blaming both. BOTH hurt LSU today and didn't have to.

Blue apologized already and the Reveille was happy to exploit his character and comments regardless of what affect it might have on its school.

What is worse? Fail a politically correct test or a drug test?

Student athletes should never answer hypothetical questions. Those types of questions are usually designed as gotcha questions.

Best answer is I don't know how I would respond until I am actually faced with the decision. When they try to force an answer, just say, I don't know; I don't know; I don't know.

Tiger woods gets paid a billion dollars for what he does and is endorsed by international corps. Alfred Blue, whether you like it or not, is a student. Why is he different than others? He can play football so he has to have a middle of the road PC statement?

Its not "he CAN play football", its he has the privilege of getting a free education by playing football. Every move Johnny Manziel makes is under the radar because he is in the public eye. Same thing here. People care so its news. Just reality dude. Wake up.

Oh don't give me that "he doesn't get paid" crap. College Athletes are basically celebrities at big name schools whether you think they are or not... Guarantee you anyone in Baton Rouge (even outside the LSU community) will know names like Zach Mettenberger, Tyrann Mathieu, and Alfred Blue. They are "famous" in this city, and therefore normal stuff done by them is news when it wouldn't be for others.

He's not different, and probably shares the same views as the majority of people his age. Not that that makes it right.

The real problem is that anyone cares what a 20 year old person thinks.

Is it really too much to ask that he not say all gay men are sissies who couldn't play football because they are sissies. He has a right to say whatever he wants..... but that doesn't protect him from people thinking that was ignorant.

Just say you agree with him that gay men are sissies and stop hiding behind the protection of his opinion defense. Noone is calling for his arrest.
