But that still does not make it ok for the Missoulian to act in any way they please. I am fully within my rights and bounds to criticize the destructive behavior of Gwen Florio and her editorial team pushing the attacks on my University and town.
It would be wrong for me to no stand up to this injustice that the missoulian is perpetrating against our University football program just because they had at one point helped me. People helped my family because we are part of this community. And I am concerned and angry over the Missoulians attacks on UM for the same reason.
I am not hiding behind anonymity like many posters on here who attack me. I do believe what I say, and believe the Missoulian does not care about UM, Missoula, Montana, or even the actual or alleged victims and the accused based on the tabloid quality articles they have printed for the last 6 months.
Nothing sells papers like a fabricated sex scandal does it. Seems to be working for the Missoulian thats why these attacks continue on a daily basis and have been doing so for the last 5 - 6 months.
Stop supporting this continuing attack on UM football. Stop supporting the Missoulian in any way.
Well, we can agree on a couple of things. First, Florio has no business continually printing her drivel and yes the Missoulian has not always been UM friendly.
Yet, there is a larger problem here and that is "our" football team. Since the begining of the Hauck years, our football team have not been the poster boys for good behavior. Quite frankly, there have been too many brushes with the law. Lets be honest here, we all know if you have the resources you can fight and win against the system. So, for those who like to sweep things under the rug as the charges did not stick, there is a problem. I do believe, the accused are innocent until proven guilty. However, back to the sex scandal, where there is smoke there typically is fire. I would argue, had the Penn State scandal not occurred, this might not be as big of story. Right now we have three investigations going on, one which has been going on for five months (NCAA) and the DOE and DOJ. I would recommend everyone hold of judging until the reports are in. Do we need to improve, yes.
Better days are ahead of us. It is time to move on.
