No war is over until the enemy says it's over. We may think it's over, we may say it's over, but the enemy gets a vote. - Gen. James Mattis
Her explanation (probably from mcneil) doens't ring true. The players that live off campus are paid twice a month the amount of R&B that would be the same if they lived on campus. If a kid blows the money, he blows the money. The school doesn't cut rent checks to the landlords. Could this be the only thing she got wrong? Doubt it.
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
So, we have a guy awaiting his Trial for armed robbery talking to a reporter from a website nobody ever heard of before... oh , we have lots to worry about, you have got to be kidding. Don't stand up for this chicks credentials.... its where you are NOW... she worked for the NYT (PAST, maybe a reason she is gone) and she worked a bit for SI (Past, maybe a reason they don't use her anymore) and she wrote a Hit Article on the Duke Lacrosse situation tearing those boys apart... and it turned out to be FALSE. She wrote a book about Arod and it has been torn apart as Garbage and full of BS.
I wouldn't lose sleep over this manly gal trying to make herself a spotlight. I think she and her sources are mostly not credible. The Muschamp reference will get the FLA folks jumping out and they will do more to shoot this down than AU will.
Here's one thing that doesn't add up in the article by Roberts. She alleges that Chizik had a problem with dreads and that players were being racially profiled. Didn't Trooper sue Auburn City Schools because his son was being discriminated against for not being able to wear dreads (or some other hair style that didn't meet the school standard)? Doesn't it seem strange that Trooper would work for a guy that would have that kind of attitude? Taylor, Luper, Boulware, Rocker, Thigpen and Pelton were all African Americans on the coaching staff under Chizik. Do you not think they would have a problem if players were being singled out because of their race?

Gotta be true if it's on the internet!
Phillip have you ever heard anything regarding Carter or the others mentioned having a "problem" with Auburn since graduating? I worry more about the comments from them than I do from McNeil. Had you heard this was coming out?
I had not heard about it coming out and I have not heard any of those players say anything negative about Auburn previously.
Remember: If The Jury Box Is Stacked With Foxes...The Chickin Is Always Guilty
What F'in credentials are you speaking of????? That she worked for the freakin' NYT - that bastion of journalism (sarcasm- drip, drip) C'mon Man get a grip!
