Geiger and Tressel speak out

Discussion in 'ESPN's 04-05 war against tOSU and Tressel' started by jwinslow, Nov 16, 2004.

    Comments of Jim Tressel on the
    Allegations Made by ESPN

    Remarks of Andy Geiger on the Allegations Made
    by ESPN on the OSU Athletic Department

    Forgive me if this has already been posted, I searched for it and did not find it. If it has been posted already, let me know, and I'll delete this post.

    Otherwise, Andy Geiger is officially my favorite hero! (I liked him before, love the man now) I don't know if a 5 TD performance could put Ginn above Geiger right now. All we need to do is make him an honorary #7 (he already has the 'G').

    Fuck ESPN!
  7. Yea, I was wondering how long it was going to take ESPN to respond and what kind of spin they were going to put on it. I guess I should have expected nothing less.

    Have fun in Utah this Saturday...

    DEBuckeye It ain't easy, bein' cheesy.

    I know that they (espn) are going to spin this in their direction, but how in the world can this Shapiro asshole honestly look at the number of articles they published over the last week and a half and say that they did not attack OSU? How can you look at the quality of the "facts" in those articles, and the half-truths that made up the stories, and say that the reporting was "fair and balanced"? You've got to be kidding me.

    This fucking jackass can blow me. If he thinks that this is an example of good, solid reporting, he's lost his mind. And if he thinks, as the vice president of production and programming, that he, or the network as a whole, aren't responsible for what his "reporters" write, he's wrong. Somebody approved the articles and the course of action. Most likely, that someone works for him in one way or another, and as a result he is just as guilty of lying as the reporters are.

    I'm glad that Geiger and Tressel commented on this, especialy Geiger. I've been waiting for someone to defend us and he did a great job. It was necessary to call espn out, and necessary to call moc out as well. That spoiled little fuck started this shitstorm in the first place, and the world needs to know what kind of selfish, dishonest, piece of shit he is.

    Fuck espn. They attacked us, they lied, and now they're being proved wrong and they're trying to cover their asses. I hope that this sort of vindicating proof continues to come out and continues to point at espn. I hope that they lose credibility for it, and I hope that it hurts them.

    Feeling your pain

    Just wanted to let you know that proud supporters of other programs (Tennessee) are there with you. We suffered through an ESPN led attack that proved to be untrue. In my experience, tOSU has always had a classy program and I am sure in the end, ESPN will look the fools. But from experience, don't expect an apology, ESPN will just make some absurd excuse about being bound to report what information they "discover" i.e. twist, change and shape to their liking. Keep the course, and Beat Michigan!!!

    If they want to prove they don't have an agenda, they can bring us Mr Such & Such.

    MoC's got his hand out. Mr Such & Such fills it. And they attack Tressel??!!

    If it looks like an agenda, and smells like an agenda, and walks like an agenda, it's an agenda.

    No agenda of course, but if you look at the frigging rag's website right now, the link to the story is:

    Geiger, Tressel defend program as 'honest'

    With honest in quotation marks....but of course, they aren't passing judgement, are they now? Nope, no spin on the story here...move along.

    Nothing more pleasurable than catching fucking lieing hypocritical assholes in the act.

    Thanks, Vol! Good to hear from a fellow Volunteer! I'm a Buckeye at heart, but I grew up in Nashville. Everything I wear reflects my love for tOSU, but you can't separate me from my orange "T" cap. My family still lives down there and we call each other a lot now in reference to what's going on with MoC. Anyway, thanks for the shout out and support!!
