Unethical Denver radio announcer

    WTF, this jock-sniffer wants to "personally" give the ball to Tulowitzki, and then get something from the Rockies for it? The jackass should simply hand the ball over to a Rockies PR person and not say a word about it. Jerks like this give a bad name to the journalism profession.

    Of course, he'll say he's not a journalist, which if he does I whole-heartedly agree.

    "During an interview on KUSA-TV, Tubbs acknowledged there was no way he could prove he had THE ball."

    Yep, that's all I needed to know.

    He's in radio. What makes you think he's a journalist?

    The link didn't work for me. Just how did he get the ball?

    IIRC, Helton ended up with it and winged it into the stands on his way to the dugout.

    i guess it happened so quickly that no PR guy was prepared to run down and keep an eye on it. i assume this is the kind of thing that should go to the HOF.

    So he was there as a fan, he isn't demanding anything in return and all he wants to do is meet Tulowitzki. What's the problem there? That seems like a reasonable request.

    He's a media member. There are supposedly ethics to follow.

    He hosts a radio show. I don't think many radio hosts would consider themselves journalists, and I don't mean that as a knock on them. He was there as a fan. Why should he be treated different from any other fan?

    Because he is a media member and there are ethics to uphold.
  12. BFD. Sell it on Ebay. The ball belongs to him, he can do what he wants.
