Dear Bob,
It is kind of funny, but I think the intent was to show ferocity with some of the players. Sometimes things work, sometimes they don't.

I agree Ken. Somehow it caught the eye of a sports talk show host in Des Moines!

It's nationwide now. Once Reddit gets it.... everyone sees it. Wouldn't be surprised to see it on ESPN later tonight.

It is funny, and of course that MLive rag picks it up and runs with it. Zero positive coverage of EMU, always looking to trash. Pathetic.

Yeah, we'll probably see a redesign, no?

Sucks.

I really don't think this is a big deal. If anything, this is an "all publicity is good publicity" situation. Forcing people to look at our schedule and furthering name recognition. After someone (likely a teenager, or of equal maturity) pointed it out, some sites ran with it, but I don't see why it would be a problem.

I saw it as a big 'nothing burger'.

And while we are talking unusual team posters, Detroit Tigers fans are talking unusual jerseys... (honest, this isn't #FakeNews).

You know, I saw nothing untoward or certainly not what so many obviously immature pajama-boys-sitting-in-moms-basements saw. The Internet can be such a wasteland. I liked the damned poster.

I can SAFELY say that poster will NEVER adorn my man cave wall. Four guys who, let's be honest, look like they're whacking the weasel is not a good look. I'm sure EMU will re-shoot (pardon the pun) and re-release (sorry again) their football poster.

You can always count on Bob W to jump on any real or perceived flaws in any one of our sports programs. Maybe the weasel they should be whacking is ..... A You or B Keno Davis

Man, that's a hard choice.

They are. Red Rocket, Red Rocket! :)

A) It's not subtle and Hard to pick up. It's quite easy without any foreshadowing, to see what it projects

B) Any press is good press

Whoever produced this poster has to be a supporter of the professor (Bunsis?) who wants football de-emphasized at EMU.

Institutional embarrassment on a national level.
