Jesus, the guy gets punched in the face by this chick. Then she lies and files a fake police report and for the next 24-48 hours everyone in the world from neckbeard basement trolls, to some of the most well known sports journalists assault his character in the most vile ways (I don't know if you've been on any of the other sites but it's been even more vitriolic than usual...which is pretty bad) on a national scale. I think worst of all was reading the posts from the Buckeye faithful saying things like 'Whatever, time for (insert back-bencher) to step up. No big loss". Whatever I'm glad he's been vindicated but man there are a few million people who owe him an apology.
Then articles like this. The headline is "Disturbin' Urban" which is like the dumbest fucking thing I've ever heard. I wonder how this guy is a national sports writer for FOX when most of the writing on this site is ten times better than anything he's ever done. I guess I don't need to go into detail about the way they talk about Urbz. It just gets to a point sometimes where I think other fan bases go beyond playful banter and rivalry and go into the realm of hate bordering on irrational. I'm getting sick of it because Urban, Hyde and the rest of the kids on this team aren't monsters.
The sickest part to me is the JOURNALISTS who are spewing this shit. Look at this site for example. This is a damn blog, and the staff here are more respectful, professional, and insightful than any staff at yahoo, nbc, fox, espn and it's ridiculous! A few baddies on Mgo are one thing, but when you've got people like the Columbus dispatch publishing a RUMOR and almost ruining someone's life we've got some serious problems that go really deep in the current world of sports journalism. Then you've got ESPN's Big Ten blog nerds doing videos about Urban's lack of control, and that pile of shit FOX sports posted which are all based off of a RUMOR from a website of a guy saying basically "hey a friend of a friend said Carlos Hyde punched some girl". Jesus and to think some kids life almost got ruined because people are too busy trying to hate on Urban and Ohio State that they can't think clearly. You've heard of being so mad you're "seeing red"? When it comes to anything Ohio State and sports journal they just phase out and start "seeing scarlet".
Ok RANT OVER NOW
