I think those are two different chants. OH–IO is bad. O–H–I–O in a stadium is good.
How many Ohio cities do we have that go their own way on punctuation? You mentioned Russia, Ohio, but we also have Lima and a few others.
I'm not really sure, but my hunch is no. If you have to choose, please choose the charity.
Hahaha, they're not mandatory! They had much cheaper options, but we wanted something that would last.
No, you apply it in the coupon/code box at checkout.
We got you.
That's a great idea – we'll have to look into that.
Sorry, just seeing this. Did you ever get your code? They're sent from a batch program that runs automatically at set intervals.
This is blatantly untrue. The staff made it clear where their feelings lay on this issue, beyond Tyreke's 1st Amendment rights.......there was talk of the site selling the shirt.....
That's ridiculous. If you're going to say something is blatantly untrue, you should probably marshal some facts. We never did and never would discuss selling the shirt.
The net neutrality thing was a forum topic that didn't hit the front page. And I stand by that. We're going to advocate for our own interests as an independent business on the internet. It's also an issue that has wide support from both sides of the political aisle. If you want to ride with Team Comcast and Team Verizon, that's fine.
Notice how we didn't say anything about the most divisive election of our lifetime last fall? Or the two elections before that? Or any state and local elections?
I realize 11W feels that since said recruit has been photographed and reported in other media has having not only worn said political statement , but has been celebrated and showered with attention for wearing such message, the site needed to report on it. However, I , like others, are confused as to why the commenting policy on this article concerning political, or "hot button issues" has been suspended and permitted to continue in not just one , but now a second thread placed by the staff?
No doubt this is a challenge for us, too. My hope is that people can see a couple of things: 1) this isn't something we make a habit of, 2) it's newsworthy and 3) we haven't editorialized the issue – we're not passing judgment on whether it was good/bad or right/wrong of him to wear the shirt.
With regards to the commenting policy, we understand it's a tough field to navigate when things like this do get posted, so we've been way more lenient with the comments left on these stories. It's not perfect, but we're doing our best.
He was literally found not guilty of murder.
I'm not making a claim on the merits of any of the cases you mentioned, but "court evidence" also proved O.J. Simpson never murdered anyone.
It's a commenting policy. It says so clearly.
Because this is newsworthy (as evidenced by the dozens of national outlets that picked up the story). And if a prospect showed up in a “Blue Lives Matter” t-shirt, that would be newsworthy, too.
That's fair. But maybe cut us some slack, too. We're not editorializing this. You're not getting a column on the shirt and why it's good (or bad).
There's no question that it's tough for people to avoid commenting on issues like this. I get that. But I disagree with your contention that the article was just meant to stir things up. The article and the one before it, was meant to report on something. (You can't really believe we enjoy dealing with these comment shitshows, do you?)
All I can say is that if an elite prospect shows up to an OSU camp in a “Blue Lives Matter” t-shirt, we're going to cover that the same way.
D.J. touched on it a few comments up, but it's a "Commenting Policy," not a "Publishing Policy."
Much like when we post things that involve John Kasich, we expect the comments to focus on the topic, not whether he's a good or bad governor or anything like that. You'd have more of a point if we editorialized these things, but we're just presenting the news without offering comment (and no, a link to a kid's Twitter account isn't endorsing the sale of a t-shirt).
Get an 11W tat, Urban!
Of course. But those positions are nearly impossible to predict. While you can assume he will bring support staff with him, Ohio State likely has the budget for additional positions to fill, as well.
Exactly. Izzo hates it, but at least has a staffer make his account look lively. There's no question in my mind that Ohio State football sees social media as a very valuable recruiting tool.
