So in other words there are no African Irish?
Can't say I know any, but I am sure there are.
Hell, 48 hours ago Manti had a dead gf, so what do I know?
I can't trust your word. You could be trying to Te'o me

Stupid that a man had to apologize for giving an opinion. That is how this country is today, though. Full of a bunch of pansies.
Oh no!!! This guy gave an opinion that I don't agree with!!!!!!! Apologizzzee!!!!!!!!!!! Now!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just so you guys no, pretty much everyone on this site that isn't a Notre Dame homer agrees with JC.
I am fairly certain that most ND fans couldn't care less whether posters from this board agree or not.
Did u actually listen to show, or read JCs posts in the thread on the ND board....I am guessing no.
Yes to both. You would guess wrong.
He gave his opinion on the matter. Its no different than Cowherd giving his opinion. Rome giving his opinion. If your board going to cry and whine until they apologize too?
Big difference actually. Rome,cowherd, etc, I don't pay them for anything. JC on the other hand, some portion of my subscription money goes directly into his wallet. I am not interested in paying someone to trash the school and players I root for.
Some of his stuff was VIP, so how did u read it?
Went to college with one. 50% ginger, 50% black. 100% ugly.
Not a good blend.
Mountie is magic
This. It's complete b/s that he had to apologize or that the CEO had to make a post on the domers board. More of the politically correct b/s. Everyone gets offended too easy.
Hes a mod & not a very good one at that. j/k Mountie.
Its still just an opinion... An opinion. People have opinions, and they are allowed to give them. He wasn't trashing ND in that thread. He wasn't trashing ND on the radio. He was giving his opinion on a national story. His opinion is the popular opinion in this country.
ND is not above ridicule. ND is not above someone having a negative opinion on an isolated matter. If you don't like it, take it with a grain of salt. If he is proved wrong, then he is proved wrong. Him having the same opinion that millions of other people have isn't a crime. It isn't going to affect the outcome of this story. Its just his guess of what happened.
You know I love you big john

It's a shame Lucky didn't give a swift kick to the balls of being politically correct and not ask JC to isse an apology. This country is nothing but a bunch of whiny pansies.
Wait, are you saying you will only pay for a site that sunshine pumps?
God, give me patience today. If given strength I may beat someone to death.
An opinion who's salary I help pay.
I don't care about ridicule, I am not interested in paying my hard earned money for it. And JC didn't just give an opinion...
He took the opportunity to insult Teos playing ability, insinuate that ND was covering it up etc.
Last time I checked, its not good business to insult subscribers.
I didn't hear the interview JC did. I really would not of cared either way. ND fans should be used to that kind of thing, I know I am. If he was forced to apologize that is kind of whack imo. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. I think 24/7 saw money walking out the door because a ton of ND fans on there threatened to cancel.
Most people think ND in some way covered it up. How long did they have to know about it until they let the public know it was all just a big hoax? Oh, that's right... Until Deadspin beat them to it. Then they rushed to the podium, didn't they?
I think you are correct. People get worked up a lot. No matter their team, it happens. Another problem is the rush to judgement that people always have without knowing all the facts
If your listening or watching them, then you are paying them. Hell, if you get cable you are paying them.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
From what I understand, they were under the impression that Manti was going to say something first, then the school. MY problem with the whole thing is all the hack reporting, just so they can be first and hope they are right later. Eeryone is in such a hurry to assassinate the character if a really good, genuine person, before they even know any of the facts. What do they care? It's not hurting the reporter at all. Say Manti comes clean in all of this, too late. All the stuff that has been said will be on him the rest of his public life, and that is unfortunate.
Gee, I thought the advertisers were paying them. Silly me. Thought my radio was free.
Domers who believe Manti Te'o in spite of his own words.
