Gundy Upset at the media
I wonder what was written that would precipitate such a response. I have to take it that Gundy had a legitimate reason. Was the author of the article sitting there listening to what Gundy had to say? If he or she deserved it, I hope so.
awesome, I wish someone would punk Jizla like that.
Gotta love when a coach stands up for his players
That was great..............this guy is going to be huge someday! :thumbsup:
Here is the reason for his outburst.
That's a ****ing bull**** article. Like coach Gundy said. These guys arent professional athletes. And someone who probably never played the game calls them out??? wow.
two words about the article..... Jenni Carlson..... nuff said... Good for Gundy, here to Bobby Reid... go tear her a new ass on the field of play Bobby....
Jenni Carlson I believe convicted our program in an article in 2004 even though she probably hasn't stepped foot in Colorado her whole life.. Just like when Stoops ripped Lupica and calling him a fiction writer for saying OU ran it up on A$M 77-0 when everyone that watched the game knew they didn't.. I respect very few sportswriters and their opinions in the country.. The Lupica's, Kiszla's, Paige's, Mariotti's are just the scum of the earth..They are all fiction writers..
So she has a bit of a reputation around those parts huh?
ya and whats funny, she used to post on the ESPN top 25 board too.... as Soonerqt I believe....
and here is Dennis Dodd's response...
Why is it that the media thinks they´re above everything? Why do they think they can do as they please?
If a player and a coach are supposed to accept "fair criticism" as Dodd says, then why can´t the media do the same? Why do they think they´re above things? Why do they think free speech is threatened as soon as someone calls them out for their drivel? What an arrogant bunch of vultures. It´s the media´s job to OBJECTIVELY report about stuff and not to form opinions for the lowly readers who are, in their opinion, too dumb to form opinions themselves.
Columnist v. reporter
Gundy is the amn IMO. "Jenni", or whatever her name is, and Dennis Dodd can go suck an egg for all I care. Gundy just has the balls to say what every other coach really thinks about the scum sucking infotainment people.:gun:
What a crock of **** that is.
I agree I think it is interesting that he believes reporters/columnists have a right to make a living of criticizing and covering these athletes; but they are immune from the same in return. I would expect a little more out of anyone who graduated college.
"This is what is never going to change, Mike: We're going to write our opinions because this is America. Free press and all that. You might not agree, but when you don't, for your career's sake, keep it to yourself."
Unbelievable. I guess it's all right for the media to print opinion after opinion and nobody is allowed to respond. What a crock of ****. I guess freedom of the press is more important than a coach's freedom of speech?
Dennis Dodd = Turd
Carlson is an idiot that has never played anything...it has been continuing problem with the crap she writes.
I think Sooner fans to a man have supported Gundy on this.....even if his tirade might have been a little over the top.
This really seems to be something all fans can agree on.
What a bull**** article by both Carlson and Dodd. Talk about what goes on in the field, not what you ****ing think is going on based on hearsay and rumors. So what if his mother brought him some chicken? ****, I'd be so lucky to have my mom be there for me once again (she recently passed away).
Dodd is a blathering moron as well. Carlson is allowed "freedom of the press" and can say what she and her editor wants, but with that same freedom others can call bull**** and call HER out for calling out a young 21 year old that is still growing up and is having a minor setback. **** her, her editor and Dodd.
This gets resolved by subscribers and advertisors pulling their subscriptions and ads. That gets peoples attention real quick. I cancelled my subscription to the Denver Post ages ago because of the drivel from Kizla and Diane Cartman. If enough people do it, it will make a difference.
Then you need help
I totally agree. Freedom of speech is protected in this case, but I'll be damned if you can find "freedom from criticism" on the bill of rights. As soon as anyone starts criticizing the media, they get slammed for anti-freedom of speech ****.
And the only place for an opinion is an editorial (sports or otherwise), not in a reporting column.
I vote cage match OSU coach vs Dodd and the lady reporter and the players mom - 4 go in - 2 come out.
Way to go Gundy! Way to stand up for your kids when someone (media) tried to kick him when he was down. I don't know about the rest of you parents but I would gladly send my kid to play for a coach like that! One who cares about HIS players!
Gundy has the right message. Bravo for standing up for his QB. But that was an unfortunate delivery. He lost his cool and looks the fool. Why give the press more to publish? Is Coach Gundy mentally stable? Will that rant help recruiting, or hurt it? Why let a struggling member of the press get under your skin? That rant has sports fans accross the country reading Carlson's article. Too bad because the article is poorly written and doesn't deserve the attention Gundy has provided. As a rule, never get in an arguement with someone who buys ink by the barrel.
"I'm 40" is the "IT" quote in the B12. "This isn't intermurals" is so 5 minutes ago.
Move along. Nothing to see here...
Ooooh, sounds like Mr. Tough Guy reporter is making a little threat there. Talk bad about reporters, and we will write you right out of a job... :huh:
I could almost swear that the Okie State athletic program generates more than enough TV and ticket money to cover the cost of scholarships. Dodd shows his ignorance, typical of way too many columnists (Hello, Mr. ****la..) with that comment.
And then there is this wonderful bit...
What the hell does her gender have to do with anything?? She is a professional. Defend her on that basis, not bringing her gender into the picture when it has nothing to do with doing her job...
But finally he gets around to the truth...
Sounds like Gundy didn't genuflect when Dodd waved his temporary title in his face, and Dodd still can't get over it. Just because Gundy thinks he knows better than a reporter how much media interaction his team needs, I guess that's reason to blast the hell out of him...
