Sounds like there has been a huge effort to keep this a secret overnight/today. Not sure what that means as far as candidates go. I’m fairly certain that current staff was informed who it was today. Would assume players are next
Gotta have those graphics with Campbell ready to go, but loose lips sink ships.

Sad times we are living in guys. Just got word that 2 duck hunters where shot and killed here on Reelfoot Lake this morning. Not anymore details than that, but it wasn't accidental from what I have heard
Man.

Those poor fellers.
I can only hope they didn't see it coming and didn't feel a thing.

The media has to be really careful about crucifying someone who has been vindicated by the prosecutor in a case. If they start attacking him saying he was involved, they can be sued for libel. They didn't press the issue because there's no evidence of wrongdoing other than him having said that he lied to his team, saying he'd seen a video he hadn't seen in order to lend gravity to his rebuke of the actions of the players. The media ran that story and it didn't really have legs so it fizzled in the news cycle. To dig it up again and try to manufacture more out of it than that would open these journalists to being sued for libel. They're smarter than that. There's just nothing more to report about it.
I'm not saying that the media should have attacked him and claimed he was involved. They don't attack the person personally because you're right, you get in trouble for slander/libel that way. When they want to go after someone who wasn't actually found guilty or charged with anything, they do things like calling for that person to resign, or put pressure on their employer to fire them, or say things like "even though they were innocent they need to go away because of the optics."

However, they didn't do any of that that with Franklin. And I'm not suggesting that they should have; I'm just making an observation that they didn't do that with him but they have done that with other people in similar situations.

I’m afraid we are down the list.
Not down the list if the deal was struck LAST NIGHT!
