Zod is right about the "more wiggle room" unaffiliated guys like Voth have compared to the local guys like Person, JJ, etc. When Person/JJ break a story about the panthers - you can take it to the bank. But Voth doesn't have to worry about the disastrous redaction and he's not accountable to his editors, bosses, etc.
But...Voth could legitimately have an inside guy on the team. His source may feel more comfortable talking to a freelance guy than talking to a tenured beat writer or NBC media troll like Darin Gantt.
I'm not a fan of Voth's tone and I do think he is a troll - but so far he's been on the $$$ this off season. I can put up with his snarky comments/Cam hate if that means he's gonna give us the goods and inside info. It's like Jeff Goodman on ESPN college bball. He's a troll and UNC hater - but he's arguably the best college hoops insider there is.
What? Person and Jones don't have an inside person beyond getting the "scoop" from the PR guy throwing them a bone before the official press release is released.
Voth and Gantt have been covering this team for a decade plus and have built up relationships with guys for far longer than the two bozo's at the Disturber. I would trust their sources before the beat guys.
