    Some interesting stuff in here, offered without comment (by me)

    A D_B for Moddy, but to be fair, this was buried in the ESPN book thread.

    Probably gets buried in there.

    And he admits to it. Apologizes.

    Total bullshit:

    The guy should be fired. But he won't be.

    I know some papers that hide behind things like "was told" or "has said" as acceptable. I know other places where he would have already been fired. I doubt that happens here...

    It's a lot to swallow.

    The DLB story is well-documented, but unfiortunately, it can't be proven. I'm not defending Woody in any way, but it's the typical stolen idea where a bunch of locals who fit into the story perfectly (usually too perfectly) are quoted. Did the interview actually take place? Probably not, but nobody can prove otherwise. There are a lot of top columnists and writers who I think do that a lot.
  8. Has to be fired.

    Added to the Paige story...

    Note: This column has been updated from its print version to include an attribution.

    He definitely will not be fired.

    Probably not even a suspension, much less a firing.

    I would tend to agree.

    There out to be some "blind panel" run by somebody like Pointer that can recommend how do deal with these issues.

    Paige will only survive because he's Woody Paige.
