Default Mike Gundys Rant

When I first read the article describing Gundys Meltdown...I immediately thought .."Dennis Green"...but after reading Carlsons article, seeing the video of Gundys reaction... and then watching the medias attempt to spin the situation as a poor defensless female reporter who felt "intimidated" by the coaches antics.....and then calling for Gundys resignation....I have to say...BS!!!
So much of her article is mere opinion and fill-in-between-the-lines speculation, that she DESERVED to be called out on the carpet.
Gundy had it right when he called her article "Yellow Journalism". Its that type of Peter King ...lack of facts...writing with no attempt at investigative reporting, that now fills the internet and the newspapers with little blurps of empty calories.
Personally I say GOOD JOB to Gundy....for sticking up for your player and calling out the empty bag of gummi bears that so called sportwriters pass off as legitimate articles.

i agree. with him standing up and ranting about this the players now know that their coach has their back and will probably be willing to work harder and play harder for the guy.

sometimes women need to shut up and stay where they belong(yes i am woman too) but if you are going to write something about someone, make sure its factual first instead of crap.. and if this chick cant stand the heat then get out of the kitchen you idiot. you are responsible for what you wrote and now you must deal with the backlash.... i hate stupid women. they give us great women bad names .

After reading the article, I think she wanted to write that he was gay, but couldn't bring herself to do that based on innuendo; so she decided to spread the innuendo some more herself.

Kudos to the coach for calling her out on it. The article was lazy gossip.

I wasn't familiar with the story, so I just read the article and then watched the video. Based on what I read, all I can say is, way to go Gundy! Carlson deserved it.

I keep seeing one writer after another making statements like..."you would have thought she made fun of his hair"....and "criticized her unfairly for her fair remarks"

...yet everything I am seeing from the fans and the public says that he was completely justified.....Writers are like politicians...very soon we will see them leaning whatever direction the wind is blowing and start the op-ed pieces about "Can sports writers go to far"

I'm not stating he was wrong for speaking out, but I thought he went a little far. Just a little.

Just my opinion.
