We should each apologize one by one to this member...Yes, he is a new poster, but we don't know who he is, he could even be Saban(lol)...He has his sources also and each of us has a right to express his/her opinion on this board(freedom of speech)

I will be the first to say that---Press Coverrage, I thought you were a liar (FOS), you're right about Poole...I apologize. Please, come again and post again.

;)I agree. (To Press Coverage) I apologize... don't think what I said was nearly as bad as some people but I doubted you and I was wrong. Sorry.

You called him a troll in the original thread.

Took about an hour for him to be proven right. Yet he doesn't deserve acknowledgment?? How about a little maturity.

All I want is for people to stop being asses to each other here and rushing to judgment on everything.

I'm sure I'll get the obligatory "whatever Muck, you're a suckup" posts now. :rolleyes:

I appreciate people backing up their claims. I personally didn't call him a troll, but those who did weren't totally off. Seeing posts like that on a constant basis with absolutely no merit to them becomes frustrating.

Just like bashing and critiscizing someone IS NOTHING, without your proof or reasons.

People not agreeing with him shouldn't apologize. But those that critiscized and bashed with comments like " STFU TROLL" Or automatically saying he is going to get banned.

Are you someone who doesn't like to be proven wrong? Can you not admit to it. I think it's sad that someone gets bashed all night for something then when he proves to be right all you can do is sit here and say he deserved the bashing and you did nothing wrong.

Atleast there are some classy posters like Nublar, and a few others.

I'm one of the few here who believes most people weren't far off in their skepticism. Troll, as being used here, is in the right context for someone who signs up and immediatly posts "Breaking News" without a source to back it up.

If they said something of a derogatory nature to him (troll isn't, it's popular forum term that did fit), then sure, apologize. Throwing out insults is never a way to go for anything.

And now you're questioning my class? I consider myself to have a lot of class, but I'm going to stand up for my own opinion.

sometimes people have information before its released to the public. This was one of those cases. I think you weren't wrong for calling him a troll. After all 4 posts, just registered today claiming a major player was injuried for the season. that happens often, and with no reliable link its usually a fraud. Although, it wasn't a fraud, and he deserves an apology. He was just releasing information before the press got it. I would like other FH members to do that, thats partly why i visit FH. I can find out dolphin news that isnt on espn yet. this was that case.

Don't see what's a big deal about an apology. Calling him a troll, thats not really an Insult. But, For the people who cussed him out, and personally attacked him, and asking the mods to ban him. They owe him an apology.

Thats fine, but when people are calling out others to apologize when they were just being skeptic, then thats when you have to draw the line. Don't start scapegoating people.

Well, I understand what you are saying. Now, I don't wanna disrespect you or anything. You know what you said as did many others. I am not saying you are one of the classless posters. I specified Nublar simply because he was big on calling him a liar and a troll, but yet immediately apoplogized when he was wrong.

Wouldn't it be weird if Press really did make it up and then Alex read it, freaked out because the "other" newspapers" were reporting it and he wasn't so he used his unnamed source ( Press Coverage ) and wrote up a quick thing on Poole only to be the only one reporting it all based off of some internet rumor? :lol: That would be great. Although then everyone who apologized would be embarassed again and I would be for defending the guy... :yell:

While it's ok to be skeptical because there are a lot of trolls out there, there is no reason to jump on somebody they way people jumped on Press just because you don't have proof, the way it should be handled is to take it with a grain of salt and wait for a news source to back up the report, then if the report is false go ahead and bash the poster.

It really sucks that because of some idiot trolls that we have to be skeptical of everybody, even the legit posters.

If you want to call that sucking up then more power to you.

now that would be wild.....Marvez has written articles before and not given credit where it was due. I wouldn't put it past him. Of course, then the Post writes the article as well. Wouldn't that be something if Saban came out tomorrow and said, "I don't know where this rumor started but Will Poole is just fine"......man, I'd be happy.....and laughing all at the same time. The board basically now has like 4 threads with posts apologizing and/or rationalizing the whole situation.

Either way, this whole thing has been very entertaining.:)

I think now that we all know who Press coverage is (or do we?), I think people will respect whatever info he has. I for one do not blame people for calling him a troll, If you call him something personal, which i have a hard time thinking there were a lot of people who did, and i am not searching high and low for those who did, then it is wrong.

But to come on here with no one having a clue who this guy is, and we still really do not know who he is, is certainly not wrong to question someone,It is only human.

I think the original thread by Press should have been a simple one like "i know someone in the press and it is soon to be reported that Will Poole has damaged his knee and may be out for the season. I know i will get ripped cus you dont know who i am but it will happen regardless. Have a nice day."

To be honest, I dont think we even have to worry about anymore information he has and in what way he posts it. The way he was treated, we're lucky he's even still posting on this site. I think it's highly unlikely he'll ever give us the head's up news again. Way to go! (Of course, this isn't aimed to the people who simply were skeptic, or apologized)

Oh yeah, my 2 cents. Calling someone a troll is a derogatory statement... I dont care how it is used or if it's common forum terms.

Good job PressCoverage! I still will take most news reported around here with a grain of salt until confirmed, but, you came through. Steven Wine called my cousin back last night around midnight to confirm a couple of his "people", as he called them, did hear that Poole had a knee injury and that it was serious, but couldn't give any more information than that. He never did deny the story last night, just that he wasn't aware of any situation with Poole or any other Dolphins player concerning injury. I guess Alex Marvez' sources are better than Wine's. Anyways, I was wrong and i'll admit it.... Again, Good Job Presscoverage..

Since he was quoting me, I'm assuming you're questioning my maturity. If you notice, I didn't call him names. Learn to read before you accuse me of name calling. And what does being in high school have to do anything with it? Often times age reflects nothing about maturity.

And you too...

If you go and read my posts, I'm not defending those that started insulting him majorly. I'm defending those who became scapegoats for just questioning his news because of a lack of a source.

Once again, what does age have to do with this? It's below my avatar, I have no reason to hide my age, but to label me based on age alone, I'd say thats rather immature.

I missed this entire episode, but I did read that thread twice.

I dont think it was that bad.

I do not think anyone was particularly cruel. Its just the internet. If you post "big news" in any forum, that covers any topic, you had better understand that people will want a source. If you dont have one, coupled with the fact that you only have ONE POST in that forum.......people are going to burn you at the stake.

Press knew he would get "flamed" for posting that without credibility (posts) or a specific source(link).

He also knew he would have four threads apologizing to him the next day.

Brilliant!

With all due respect Muck, I always see you asking for a link and saying it's almost a requirement. Why was it not important that Press had one? I've seen you ask for a link and saying if they didn't have one then the thread dies. You've said it was important and common sense for people to post a link. I don't see why it's different because he gave us a ETA. He was a new poster, and you know 99.9% of new posters with important news are mostly trolls.

Forum is full of a$$hole$. The man is obviously a Dolphins fan, and new to the forum. He didn't neccessarily know the protocol for breaking news (must include a link). He was just excited to be a part of the fun - which is after all what this forum is about.

Point being - he is a fellow Dolphins fan and a lot of people jumped down his throat for a rookie mistake. That's just messed up and all of you who did it should consider what this forum is about and why you post here: to interact with other fans. Not punish them.

I missed this entire episode, but I did read that thread twice.

I dont think it was that bad.

I do not think anyone was particularly cruel. Its just the internet. If you post "big news" in any forum, that covers any topic, you had better understand that people will want a source. If you dont have one, coupled with the fact that you only have ONE POST in that forum.......people are going to burn you at the stake.

Press knew he would get "flamed" for posting that without credibility (posts) or a specific source(link).

He also knew he would have four threads apologizing to him the next day.

Brilliant!

Seriously if you post any information on here that could be fishy without a link you our most likely gonna get called out. It seems to me that press has friends that work for the Sun-Sent. and he got the information a couple of hours early. He couldn't even name the paper that he believed the article would be in the next day. After a welcome to the boards and a short apology we can get to flaming the next 20 posters that start a false thread.. GreenMonster

i wasn't here when it happened, but if he just registered to post a news story with no credible source, he deserved the bashing. however, he wasn't lying, so at least give him credit for having the story first. but you shouldn't have to apologize, unless you called him some horrific things.

BTW, it really sucks that poole is out for the year.

If you go and read my posts, I'm not defending those that started insulting him majorly. I'm defending those who became scapegoats for just questioning his news because of a lack of a source.

Once again, what does age have to do with this? It's below my avatar, I have no reason to hide my age, but to label me based on age alone, I'd say thats rather immature.

You're side stepping now......you initially stated no one on finheaven was wrong for their comments. Now you're changing your story to only defend those who were skeptical of his post. Pick a side and stick w/it.

As for the maturity comment, age a lot times is correlated w/maturity (not always). I did not initially "label" you because of your age but on your comments alone. Needless to say seeing that you're 17 didn't surprise me.

Sorry for having my own opinion, even if it's a 17 year-olds opinion which obviously doesn't mean much to you.

And I don't condone people bashing someone to the point of name calling (and the term troll is justified when used right). I'm defending those who wanted a link. I think that's sticking with a side. And perhaps I didn't make it clear earlier who I was defending, if so then thats just a mistake of being too vague.

I could turn this around and say that your lower post count then mine means that your opinion doesnt mean as much as mine, but do I? No. I don't judge based on anything besides what a person says and how they act.

Phinz4life, I've never really talked with you, but you are sure looking like a spoiled loser on this one.

I didn't read this until today, but I would have been skeptical as well with something like this. That's fine to be that way, but to treat the man the way everyone did and not at least admit that you were wrong and owe him an apology is pretty low IMO.

Just state the obvious: Usually guys who post things like this Press are dead wrong and just trying to cause trouble. This is a rare case where you weren't. You gained some credibility with this and caused alot of us to be red in the face with our actions. In the future, we'll probably react nearly the same to news like this w/o sources, but hopefully we learned that this shouldn't get personal and we will all just wait to see the rumors verified first and take the news for what it is.

PS- That sucked to open my computer and see the news that Poole is out for the year. Especially for a guy who wasn't a blazer to begin with.

I found about Poole's injury only hours ago. I scanned some of the old threads including the one started by Press Coverage. The early responses in that thread were beyond pathetic and beyond belief. I mean, he immediately mentioned several Sunday papers were reporting Poole's injury. He was specific in regard to the player involved and type of injury and when it occurred. Anyone who doubted it has no clue regarding probability. You can look at his basic language and the tone and tell it screamed legitimacy. He didn't quote a so-called insider friend or anything bizarre like that. Many, many posters here have applauded Saban's incomparably ignorant and useless press blockade. Well, this is the first example of how wrong you are. Stay tuned for more.

:cooldude:

Sorry that it took me so long to post today, just got home from the hospital. I've spent most of the day at work thinking about how I would like my crow cooked. ;)

I apologize for grilling you so hard last night as well. However, if you had been a frequent poster (or observer) of this board before yesterday, you would understand why so many gave you a hard time. Since Dave stepped down last season, new posters have been coming to this board daily to post "breaking news" stories and 99.9% of the time they are crap. People here are really getting tired of trolls popping up on a daily basis. Now that the Poole story has been confirmed, it is cool that we have FINALLY gotten some inside info before it was broken to the general public. I urge you to share any info in the future as your credibility has been proven. I spoke today with my connection on the Phins medical staff (I am not about to name my source :wink: ) and that person told me that he/she was unaware that Poole had gotten injured. That person also told me that he/she had missed a day at the camp last week so I am certain that the injury occurred during that time. As I said, I don't get the lowdown on all players, but I usually get general info on starters and potential starters. This just happened to be one that slipped through the cracks.

Again, I apologize to you Press and I hope that you continue to provide any inside info you get. I'm pretty sure that many here will back you up next time......I know that I will.

Well as usual I come in about three days too late just when everything is blowing over. I read the original thread though that started it all.

You seem to think that just because the info you provided was correct, that it means that you are completely in the right here. Sorry. I don't see it that way. Since you've decided that you want to rehash it here on the public board, here we go.
Its good that you recognize that you want to keep this thing going, because you clearly love the attention. You sent me your "I told you so" PM begging for an apology. I explained exactly why you got the reaction that you experienced. I also explained why you wouldnt be getting any apology. Now for most people, that in itself would be enough. So here we go again. It wasnt just the post. It wasnt just that you are a newbie. Although both of those were part of the factor. It was also your refusal to provide a link, or a source, or some type of explaination for the thread. Instead you popped off and hide and refused to answer the questions posted to any degree other than "because I say so and I have a source" with an arrogant tone IMO. Thats what Trolls do, so you were treated like a troll.

If you don't like the negative reaction you recieved here PC, then stay away or change your tactics. Your attitude got you bashed just as much as your refusal to post a source, confirmation, or link. Your PM that you sent to me later on carried more of the same of your garbage. Begging and attitude. You think I give a rats azz that you provided a 6 hour head start on general news that would be splashed over ever news media? Moreover, if you didnt already have a chip on your shoulder, or if you had been around a little bit, you'd understand completely why you got what you got here. Your PM was just as arrogant and attention-whoring as every other post you've made. Look at your post here that I'm responding to. Begging, attitude, and calling me out. Typical of your time here so far PC. You say you can't and will never share those sources? Then the odds are someone is sharing info with you that they shouldnt be. Or you are taking it from someone you shouldnt be. Maybe you could reflect about other ways you could have presented yourself here when initially questioned over the bad news you brought here.

You want an apology. Here it is "I apolo".....nope just cant do it. Hope you recover soon. As for you beer drinking comments, it just goes to where you are and how you are incappable of moving on big boy. I mean after all...here we are days after the incident and you are still tracking down "those doubters that bashed you". Isn't it enough for you to know that info you posted was correct? If its any concellation to you, all the trolls (as we thought you were) get the shave the hairy mole on your mom's back line. It wasnt even original.

Here's to hoping you disappear! I doubt you will though. There's still so many people here to pester for doubting you on your post with no credibility and plenty of attitude. Who knows, maybe you can track down everyone that didn't "give you your props". :lol:
Word of advice . Move on and quit begging. It makes you look weak. If you do move on you'll soon see others have made that move already.
