We aren't going to get into the whole Bissinger rant because we are a day late. That's what we get for going to see the President. (FYI- you haven't lived until you've seen Jared Lorenzen up close).
Anyway, lost in the shuffle was this little piece done by a colleague of Illuminati's over at phillyburbs, Mike Sielski.
"For example, during an interview on WIP in 2005, Bissinger suggested Jim Thome was a steroid-user, because Thome was injured and his production was way down. The next day, I criticized Bissinger in a column for making the accusation without offering any evidence."
So, let's figure this out. Printing pictures of Matt Leinert doing a beer bong (even though the pictures are indeed real) is bad journalism. Accusing a potential HOFer of using steroids because he is a having a bad April is acceptable. You can accuse anyone of anything as long as you don't make jokes about their man breasts or say the F word. You must also stay out of the personal lives of athletes.
Let he who has not made himself famous with a book about the lives and family issues of 15-18 year old kids cast the first stone.
