    The NFL should be ashamed that this happened.

    As much as I hate to say this, I think ESPN comes out looking good. They didn't compromise their journalistic integrity for the sake of protecting a sponsor. I remember reading that article and thinking it was a very interesting insight into the level of dysfunction we haven't had here for about 30 years.

    in theory, yes.

    In fact though, we know that ESPN (and Wickerham in particular) has none of the stuff called "journalistic integrity" in the first place

    Or in Ben Volin-ese, like Kraft Foods pulling their ads from the Boston Globe.

    Once again the hubris of BSPN hits them in the wallet. They will never learn.

    Their "journalistic integrity" was compromised long ago. This doesn't revive it.

    I think Wickersham should take his 'talents' to the National Enquirer where they'd appreciate him more.

    If all the hundreds of sources that Wickersham has used over the years, not a single one will put their name on it.

    I didnt read the article but I assume it was full of unnamed sources. His Patriot article was about 10% fact and 90% innuendo from unnamed sources.

    Wickersham was largely right. And the Pats overcame it. Doesn’t mean the problems were never there.

    Wickersham was right about there being some sort of discord. All the local writers confirmed that.

    Wickersham was wrong about every single detail. Local writers confirmed that too. Remember the Patriot of the Week award?

    He heard some scuttlebutt about general concepts and then made up a story to go with it.

    I expect the Browns story is similar.

    De he lambast the Browns for cheating considering the owner also owns the Flying J franchise which literally had several executives go to jail for cheating their customers?

    I doubt we all know who the real cheaters are....:rolleyes:

    He made normal life into an issue. He took rumor and unconfirmed attitudes and blew them up into creating a story about discord. It was weak journalism.

    He wasn’t really right about anything.
