Deflection Sunday for journalist. Pile on TN fans and deflect from the officiating because this was a gift. They can write about officiating next week as of this week didn’t happen.

It is over the top and the vast majority of UT fans have never and would never behave like this. This does NOT reflect the UT fan base.

Having said that, I never wanna hear another word about some idiot fan(s) allegedly throwing a cup of urine in Gainesville 25 years ago. All fan bases have their fair share of idiots.

Yeah there's always some idiots at games who do things that make everyone look bad but I can guarantee Lil Pete has never been to a game at Neyland or talked to other fans about how they were treated before, during and after a game. We've had thousands of examples of fans, some that even come on this very board, to express their gratitude about their experience while in Knoxville. Did what happened last night look bad? Yes it did but to refer to the entire fan base as classless, worst fan base in the country, among other names shows exactly why people despise the media especially the lazy "journalists" like Thamel. Looks like he's never been to the swamp, between the hedges or that hell hole in Tuscaloosa or maybe he'd have a different take. Actually, no he wouldn't, he's shown his hatred for UT over the years and relishes any opportunity he can to slam anything Vols.

While it was clearly intended to crucify TN, it wasn't all wrong. This part is absolutely true:

"What unfolded was especially embarrassing to the thousands of classy and well-behaved Tennessee fans, who deserve to go root on their team without watching a crew of idiots take target practice at the players, Kiffin and the school’s own marching band. There are a lot of upstanding Tennessee fans who should be angry this morning, as they’re now labeled as part of the sport’s laughingstock."
