T.O. and the F.F. team owner's right to know

Postby Wesley Walker » Fri Sep 29, 2006 10:34 am

So let's just assume T.O. did attempt suicide. How wonderful is it that the fantasy owners right to know what's going on with their roster players outweighed the medical confidentiality that sometimes stifles the free flow of information? Props to the press. Humanitarians are they, for having considered the feelings of the fantasy football folks out there, and for having sniffed out the real story like so many hound dogs.

Okay, so fantasy owners aren't directly implicated. Yet we do drive the news gathering done by NFL reporters. Not as much power as gambling does, likely, but still some.

The real villain here is the press, their "what bleeds, leads" attitude, and the people who buy the tabloids.

So if you can't express an opinion, or even have an opinion, when a guy's suspected suicide is made into national news, and where the 911 transcript is being published in fantasy news sources, I won't fault myself if people seem confused about where exactly my sarcastic post was going.

I don't think it had anything to do with FF. I think the leak of information had to do with the fact that he's a media target. If it had ANYTHING to do with actual football-related nonsense, it would have to do with actual gambling, and not FF.

It was a legitimate news story, and still is IMO. I hope they keep investigating.
