    Looks like an Internet hoax has cost someone his job....this is kind of a d_b from an earlier thread about Saban.


    EDIT: And if this BLOG! is wrong, my apologies to the man in question.

    Dude even got the "Birminham News" wrong in his column. Not that it matters because of the other errors there.

    Desperate for a column, isolated, and time-starved . . . sad story.

    Two words - Jack Ass.
    If ever there was a no-brainer canning, this one is it. He forgot the most important rule, one that even your's truly has broken, COVER THY ASS!
    In this case, there was no cover available. I think it took Dodge more time to write the story than to place a simple phone call to get a quote.

    You know, if writers continue to do this type of thing, Saban might just become a total ass. :D

    I read the first post on this thread and my firstthought was "What ding-dong at Tuscaloosa do now?" :D
  10. That's exactly what I was thinking, Slappy! :)

    Yes, the writer was horribly sloppy, but where did he get the fake e-mail? If someone from the Birmingham News wrote that and sent it out, even as a joke, he/she has some explaining to do. I hope that's not the case.
