Bobby Knight non story

Recommended Posts

The latest Bobby Knight "scandal" smacking a player is the most glaring example yet of ESPN being out of touch. I am the first to post this topic on here nobody is talking about it but them, and to me it seems as if ESPN is deliberately trying to start a firestorm to get him fired before he wins 8 more games and becomes the winningest coach of all time.

What say you:

Exactly. And you can tell that pretty much everybody in "Sportsnation" thinks that this is a nonissue. 80% said it wasn't. Dumb ESPN, well, dumb media in general.

But still, he shouldn't have done that, because everybody knows that since Knight has had a rocky ass relationship with the media over the years, that this would break out, and the media would take any chance they had to get something started.

Remember the Miami-FIU brawl? Broadcast media like a good controversy. It's the nature of the business...controversy drives viewership. This isn't new.

It's not a NON story. Based on Knight's history, it's completely a story. However, it's non-sensical to think that ESPN would do something to get Knight fired since they put on a movie about him and his stupid Knight School show. You wouldn't try to get someone fired when you're too busy slurping his :censored: or rimming his :censored:. Plus with the exception of Doug Gottlieb, all the college basketball analysts think it's no big deal.

I suggest getting the story RIGHT instead of hastily reporting conjecture. Isn't that what we EXPECT of our media in this country?
