    And your heart wouldn't have been broke by the '06 NCAA snub neither.

    Ohhhhh and I thought we were getting along again.

    Go justifiably fuck yourself and pronto. LOL.

    Hey, I was trying to be nice. A free education and no heartbreak.

    Ohhhh yeah.

    I'm sorry, I'm just a little touchy.

    Understood. Hell, we're all feeling a little jobbed right now. So much insight *** out there for free.

    Uhhh....I've seen Nightengale in action. He's good, but he's also one of the guys who likes to get really cozy with players. So I'm not ruling out the possibility they thought they were talking to Buddy Bob rather than Journalist Bob.

    That is the fault but the players. If you're on the record with Buddy Bob, it's still on the record. Never say anything to a reporter you don't want in print, unless you explicitly know it's off the record. Period. I deal mostly with high school kids and coaches, and I cut them some slack.

    Gary Sheffield and Jason Giambi? No dice.

    Re: "Off the record" status with journalists


    If you are communicating (talking, texting, IMing, e-mailing) with anyone who is a "professional journalist," anything and everything you say is on the record, unless and until the journalist specifically and explicitly agrees that it is not.

    Please keep this fact in mind should you feel the urge to utter any damaging or embarassing statements.

    Thank You.

    The only thing more outrageous than these guys claiming they were jobbed was when Reggie Smith years ago claimed he was misquoted -- in a LIVE TV interview.

    Or, when Charles Barkley claimed he was misquoted in his own autobiography. :eek: :eek:

    I believe he said, "I misquoted myself." A Hall of Fame moment, for sure.

    am i mistaken in remembering that raismann crossed the line during the NYDN strike that almost killed the paper/ and if i am not, does anyone else think, then, it's odd for him to be raising questions of ethics by journalists?
