I think the real value in this story is how the national sports reporters behave and how that influences their reporting. Reporters have an incestuous relationship with the subjects they cover, but they are first and foremost vultures.
Is it any wonder how a scandal like the one at Penn State was able to be swept under a rug for decades while Joe Pa muddled through one season after another?
They were digging for dirt on Cam until they arrived at a whiff of scandal that they could take off on. Marry the Auburn situation with Peter Kings infamous "entertainer, icon" mis-characterization and you begin to get a picture of the sports reporting world that most of us on this board read religiously to get a sliver of real information.
Cam doesn't pay the media any mind and neither should you.
And Peter King can suck truck nuts until he get's permanent lock-jaw IMHO..
