Bama Fans, Do You Care How Saban Treats The Media?

  • by ITK

In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’re familiar with Saban’s rant yesterday. Predictably, those who hate Alabama and the beatdowns Nick Saban represents to their foreseeable football futures are taking the opportunity to pile on, grandstanding on the travesty of his stance.

Frankly, if I had worked with the wormy media for seventeen years, I can’t imagine having an opinion of them greater than Saban’s. Selling “X” (air time, newsprint, website subscriptions, etc.) is their main objective, and they’ll do just about anything to feed the frenzy that is Alabama football. As fans, we are partially to blame, but it’s a never ending cycle. He’s not making $4 Million if we don’t care as much as we do.

So Bama fans, what are your thoughts? Is he justified to be fed up with a news reporter who made assumptions based on 15 minutes of pre-practice exposure?
