It's sad when people expect that reporters are lying about even sports. I tried to give the benefit of the doubt because I'm always on Rossi's case and didn't want to seem like I was being unfair about him reporting on a tough situation (vs stupid crap like trade rumors which half the media lie about).

Clearly though I should just assume every big headline he writes now is a lie until someone respectable backs it up.

It still could turn out to be one though. It's just that Rossi went full Rossi and jumped the gun by lying.

The way his neck snapped back, he'd almost have to be superhuman to not have a concussion.

You're walking down a dangerous path with a "media oversight board" though. Sounds good in principle, but in practice... not so much. We probably shouldn't get into a political-esque type debate though

Here is yet another piece on Rossi and his stellar reporting skills. Best part of this article (if you can call it that) was this quote.


Quote:
Malkin has disliked Rob Rossi for a long time and it culminated with Rossi’s January article that suggested that “Malkin paid like Crosby; needs to play like him” which showed Rossi’s true colors with the comments “I know that Malkin understands English well enough to routinely give Crosby a break from granting interviews…” and “He (Malkin) chooses not to do much more than just play hockey“.

The good news is: newspapers are dying (slowly, but surely). Eventually there will be an overhaul of media, it's just going to take some time for the media business to stop throwing money at print outlets.

After the "Jagr watch" fiasco, I finally unfollowed him on Twitter, and have completely stopped reading any article he writes. I can't fathom why people still give him credence in this town, but it's probably the same people that read TIOPS as well. They just love their sensationalism and rumors, no matter how false they actually are.

Even if it is - a concussion doesn't mean it's the same as Sids.

Concussions are quite ubiquitous in the NHL. It's something we will see a lot of.

Yet he claim's he somehow close to Malkin. What ****ing idiot. I bet he got bullied a lot in school. He just seems like that type of kid that nobody liked.

Oh of course. I agree with that point. Even still though, you'd have to think he'll be out for a few weeks regardless if it in fact is a concussion. That's just given the nature of the injury, the fact that Malkin is so important to this team, and we don't want to risk repeating the same mistakes we had with Crosby and Letang.

The team isn't hurting for wins at the moment, so no need to rush things.

Haha. Sorry bad choice of words on my part. "Media Ethics Board" is what I'm driving at. IOW maybe an independant branch of the Justice Dept that can convene for special cases, to prosecute journalists or media owners who have been proven to have knowingly mislead the public, supressed important information, etc.

IOW not validating content but having a system of consequences in place for jounalists and news organizations that abuse the public trust.

But ya, don't want to go Full Rossi on a politics-in-hockey-board discussion. My fault. This is my area of pet peavedness / the area most likely to result in angry reactions, etc.

Name one and everything will be cleared up.
If his source is on the medical staff they may be bound by some patient confidentiality agreement. If they are then naming them could certainly cost them their job.

It's not even that you believed the report that made it bad, it's more like you were playing dr without even being in the same room as Malkin.

You gave the definitive diagnosis of a minimum of 4-6 weeks and let's hope he's healthy for next season.

So what is the issue with Malkin if he isn't having headaches and disorientation? Is he sitting for precautionary reasons or did he hurt his back? Rossi's terrible reporting combined with how secretive NHL teams are about injuries leads to much confusion.

I'm not sure, but I believe concussion symptoms can take a few days to manifest. So it may just be precautionary. Either way, I'd be totally fine if Geno sits out for a week or so just to be cautious.

In that case they should lose their job anyway, because they'd have broken their patient confidentiality agreement by reporting the patient's condition to a reporter.

Its annoying as hell their had to be a reason y he left the game friday and a reason y hes not playing tonight. The only thing we will probably get out of the pens is an upper body injury.

You would've thought Rossi would learn his lesson. Take this quote from back in '08.

Quote:
"A personal note: During my time covering the Penguins' arena saga, I was burned twice by so-called sources. I am still reminded and often haunted by it. That experience has changed the way I do business. I now print what I know from conversations with players, team officials and league personnel, and I attribute that information as often as possible. Even then I get bad information, but at least I can sleep at night."

Of course they didn't rule the concussion out. One day you're feeling good and next day, you've got headaches. I think it was too early too say what exactly Geno has, if anything.

That's why I didn't believe Rossi's "sources". Let alone when I heard some dates/weeks of missing.
