This is why I canceled my subscription.
So the CA; did some investigative journalism, and targeted our hometown team for doing someone a favor. Great job CA!
Hometown paper shows it's not from Memphis anymore.
Why don't you go after UT? Your telling me nothing ever happens in Knoxpatch.
Hypocrites.
Memphis hometown paper (NOT!).
How the hell do you lead off with a pro VOL article followed by a cheap shot against Memphis favorite sons.
but of F'n POSes

Yeah I'm not sure if you're aware of this, but the CA has been little more than a national USA Today outpost for us for a while now.

Most articles are published nationally. The papers aren't even printed in Memphis.

Penny broke a university rule/mandate/policy/ when it comes to the virus----and Rudd shut him down.

Gianotto is a snake in the grass.

What do you do when you catch a snake. You get rid of it.

Penny needs to ban him from future media briefings at the Laurie Center.

Put him out of a job and force him out of town.

Rid the program of the snake.

What do you expect them to do with information like this? Martin got the info from Hampton. The facilities are closed. It’s their job to ask questions and report the news. Martin reported It. Gianotto Followed up and asked some questions.

Penny was in violation of university policy. AD ended it until the University policies could be updated. Not really a huge deal. In fact if anything it was a positive story about Penny reaching out to help a young man. It was a positive story about Penny maintaining relationships.

You guys are acting clinical.

Maybe I have a skewed view of things. I’ve seen a minimum of 20 positive stories about the U M over the last week. There are good things happening and it gets reported. I was interviewed by an organization in Nashville yesterday. They shared some related info that gave the U of M high praise. Tomorrow I’m meeting with some university admins to plan a major event recognizing accomplished alumni. New degrees, new majors, growth, national recognition, progress on facilities, volunteer stories, feeding kids, impact on the community, new grants....
So a perceived negative story viewed by a few people just doesn’t register when I can see some good in the story.

My rebuttal to monsieur Tigerx3 (skew, good word);
- yep they are supposed to report news and this isn't news
- why only 20 positive stories about the UofM last week, to your point the UofM did 100+ good things, so we should have seen more
- given the overwhelming other positivity at the UofM does this negative story rate taking up precious electronic space when the more pertinent message could be shared
- It is negative, the headline by itself is negative, the story is not supportive; it accompanied a supportive story about a football player at UT...
- So given the above we take up precious electronic news and advertising space for what is essentially a good deed that ended with a wrist slap? The only explanation for the CA to spend the money to write this article is that the CA isn't our home town paper. They are pro UT, but neutral Memphis. That's their skew...
- For me my skew... I am skewed pro-tiger. I am a fan, a Fanatic! I am overly sensitive. I will overreact. I do not apologize now or ever. I come here to be among other blue crazies. I have a blue car, a blue bed spread, 10+ pictures of tigers, shelves of memorabilia, 30+ blue shirts, I even painted my pool blue and grey! I got my certificate for being the 3million-eth fan to attend a game at the coliseum on 2/5/1985 framed. That's my skew.
- I'd be fan of CA if the CA was a fan of Memphis. Skew, but they prefer to skew, so skew the CA!
- I am a Daily Memphis subscriber and encourage all here to be too.

I am a Daily Memphian subscriber.
I have frustrations regarding the CA which is a shell of it’s historical significance. I didn’t like the word defies in the headline. It was click bait. I disagree it’s not news. If stuff gets hidden it always gets out and it always looks more suspicious if not reported.
I appreciate the passion for Tiger blue, I’m there with you in spirit and in the stands. If the door opens for football or basketball I’m there till the final horn sounds as a 40 year season ticket FB and BB since the first game in the pyramid.
I worked there for 13 years, earned 3 degrees, serve on 3 committees, Lifetime Alumni member, TSF and Academic contributor, still teach as adjunct when called to help out.

Penny is BB royalty. I’m one of his biggest fans and supporters. He is not afraid to put himself way out in the public eye. If he farts in public it’s going to get reported because it’s Penny’s fart.

It’s easy to get consumed with hate of the media. It’s currently a national past-time. But I’ve seen periods when fans deserted the games and the passion was just a fading ember. I think it is ok and even sometimes good for us to feel uncomfortable with some stories because it reminds the decision makers people are watching. I just choose to put my energy in the positive news and try to be part of creating it.

Thanks for your passion. I actually remember the 3,000,000th fan celebration. Wish it had been twice that.

If anything, it shows that Giamoron prefers to have no access to any information from here on in, which in the end will only hurt the CA, will make him useless to subscribers and will hurt his career. So, at some point he will be fired because he won't have any info which will then squarely land him in his rightful place; reporting on bingo nights and cats being rescued from trees in the middle of nowhere.

Every writer that reports on every university sits on information all the time. They know that their access depends on it. I guess given how little access Giamoron has as it is, this is his big Albert Means moment.

I read the article and really don't see a real problem with it....the facts are the facts and he is just reporting them. If you really want to see a negative reaction by a reporter to a local team....you need to be here in Dallas and hear Dale Hansen's comments on the COWBOYS on TV. He bas been trying to get Jerry Jones hire a GM for many years....basically saying he needs to fire himself from the GM's job.
