UPDATE 2: The creator of the site, Mark Rigsby, kindly replied to our email asking for clarification regarding the site. Mr. Rigsby said the site was created to give a good friend (and Bama fan) a hard time.” Rigsby said the site was not intended as a smear to Alabama fans. We’ll take his word for it. However, the creation of the site immediately following the loss to UGA, certainly could be viewed by media and others as the work of “deluded” Alabama fans. We like jokes, but it might be useful to actually, you know, be funny and not rely on stereotypes.
EDIT: OK, so EDSBS is where he got the info and was the one that first pointed out the site. Every Day Should Be Saturday.
A TiderInsider poster did some detective work and revealed what may be the identity of the creator of the firecoachnicksaban.com website. The anti-Saban site, first mentioned this morning on the excellent blog RollBamaRoll.com was created as an attempt to smear Alabama fans. The site was created following the first loss of Saban’s tenure at Alabama.
According to the information from the TI poster, the website links to a ministry site here: The Fight for Manhood. A supposed Christian ministry smearing football fans. No shock, the site’s owner is from Tennessee. I guess lots of things are different in Tennessee, including the injunction on not bearing false witness.
I sent an email asking the alleged site creator to explain how this obvious attack was in harmony with his alleged Christian beliefs. I’ll post any answers the guy sends.
