I own this story

But can these hotshot blogger/journalists give credit where credit is due? Hell no.

As the day ended Thursday, even Woj had nothing.

Well, since everyone knows that you can't spell "quitter" without W-O-J-N-A-R-O-W-S-K-I-Q-U-I-T-T-E-R, I decided to get this ordeal done.

It wasn't even difficult.

As midnight Friday struck, I made a few calls. Over the next hour, I broke this bitch wide open.

But does the blogger-industrial complex country club set have the guts to get on the simsTrain to Accurate Journalism™? Hell no. So, I try to ease their doubts.

Still not enough for the drones we depend on to bring us our priceless sports information.

Sports speculation.

Sports rumors.

You guys are awesome at what you do.

One last attempt to let the world know what I already knew.

Then I watched some television and went to bed. Almost half a day later, American Journalism reported the story, but not until it had been confirmed.

I don't understand the ethical shift. Rumors have been good enough here in silly season. Rumors of rumors have been more than good enough. I thought the Intarwebs and sites like SBNation were going to revolutionize the way we received information, but all it's done is make us all more stupid at a higher rate of speed. The community has gotten so insular, that people who wouldn't have been considered journalists five years ago are perfectly comfortable snubbing people like me, just because we aren't journalists now, won't be in five years, or ever.

Well, I'm not smart enough to tell you what's next in reporting, now that the stench of death has enveloped the rotting corpse of Modern Journalism, but I can tell you without a doubt, that it's definitely me.
