Schlossman (http://www.gopherpucklive.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=10737&start=675#p469781) ripping Hammy and Gopher fans making excuses on GPL is awesome. :D

The double standard by a few Gopher fans is also hilarious. The Herald covers up all these stories for UND and doesn't report them! The Star Tribune has been things to do then report on what Gopher players do!

Seeing an alleged Grand Forks "journalist" getting rattled by message board posts is even more awesome. What a moron.

Clearly Mr Schlossman is shocked - shocked! - that hyperbole and exaggeration exist on the Internet.

Keep up the good work, GPL. You'll have Mr. Schlossman chasing his tail for the foreseeable future!

Or that Hammy makes up stuff. I don't see how anyone could be shocked by that.

A Gopher bobo getting owned by a UND reporter bobo and then making up stories from "sources" to make it seem like he hadn't really gotten owned. Oh I will miss these games and all the other assorted shenanigans.

Seeing an alleged "hockey expert" who get's his information from inside sources making stuff up consistently. What a gopher fan. Keep up the good work GPL pretty soon you'll convince each other Costa Rica has nukes

Hammy has a valid point. Two different sized markets. The Twin Cities media has 4 professional sports teams and a major conference football and basketball team that get more attention. Not exactly apples-to-apples.

I believe Hammy also pointed out that it wasn't these transgressions, which he characterizes as kids being kids that he was referring to. Not sure what he was referring to, but I think he made it clear that Schloss's response didn't really address what he was referring to.



When you have multiple professional teams, multiple Universities (including one with major D1 sports beyond hockey), and a ton of HS sports in the local market, you're not going to get quite as much attention in the paper for a relatively minor off ice incident for the college team. Let's be honest... they have bigger fish to fry here. But when it is warranted (a la Gopher basketball), they don't sweep it away like nothing either. Not to mention, it is pretty much an annual ritual for Reusse to bash the local D1 hockey team at some point.

I never cared about much about lawnmowers or ****ing in an elevator so bringing up those things is off target with me. They are college kids and I did stupid stuff when I was that age too (although it is a little different when you rep the University as a scholarship athlete). I was never aiming at that kind of stuff. My main issue is more what goes on behind the scenes with some questionable things at the school that I know are reality from talking to a few scouts/advisers that wonder how some of this stuff never comes to light up there. But I'll leave it at that. I can't entirely blame the media. It is a code of silence that wouldn't be easy to break.

Evidently, an alleged "journalist" was shocked enough to post to an unofficial, biased fan website (memo to Mr. Schlossman: there is no other kind of unofficial fan website).

He got owned the very moment he posted his reply. And he should know better.

Trust me. You're in no position to criticize other posters on this site.

And Costa Rica doesn't have a military.

So if the Herald doesn't report something UND players do, they are covering it up. While if the Star Tribune doesn't report something Minnesota players do, it's because they are too busy? Both papers have a reporter who covers the team, so I fail to see why the standards for reporting should be any different. Roman's other beat is the Lynx, who are not currently in season.

So Hammy makes vague accusations about incidents not being reported, Schlossman say look at all this stuff I reported on!, and Hammy says "that's not what I was talking about.", never once indicating what he is talking about.

In that case, I have the same problem with Gopher hockey and Roman's reporting. There are all sorts of transgressions he doesn't report. Why is he covering for the University?

Simple,because there are no cover ups or transgressions with Gopher Hockey, but there are with Sue/Whioux Hockey.

I'd also point out the difference in the transparency that the coaches allow. how many times has a meadow muffin gotten suspended and the press release only say that it was "due to a violation of team rules"? whether it is the athletics staff at UND or Schlossman doing his job we always seem to know what has happened to warrant a suspension of a UND player

Again, I don't think he was referring to the things players do. Not sure how many times that needs to be said. And Hammy really isn't a reporter, so I don't see the correlation. Not sure about what he was referring to, but don't care enough to make a huge deal about it. It's between him and Schlossman.

And I don't think you'll find many Gopher fans who will defend Roman's reporting. Then again, we aren't über-sensitive about criticism of reporters who cover our team either.

Bottom line, as a reporter if you take everything you read on message boards (especially those of teams other than for the team you cover) personally, your career is going to feel like an eternity.

I admire the Strib for hiring reporters from outside the market. It is my opinion that you shouldn't be a huge fan of the team you cover. You tend to take criticism of the team and your reporting too personally. It's just a job.

I don't believe he's covering anything up.

I believe he's a fine sportswriter who did something incredibly stupid by engaging GPL. If, in fact, that was indeed him.

I don't care one way or the other really either, I just shared the link because I thought it was funny seeing Hammy backtrack. The only thing I really questioned was how is Schlossman supposed to defend himself when no one, besides Hammy, knows what he is supposedly covering up. Other than not responding that is, but that would've been no fun and we'd be 15 less posts away from locking this thread!
