rolltoomer 0 Posted August 13, 2006 Share Posted August 13, 2006 The following is an e-mail I received from Ryan Brown. (It is part of another thread but that thread is old news and isn't being visited.) Thank you for taking the time to write. It is best not to believe everything you read, especially message boards, which deal primarily in fantasy and rumor. It is my understanding that someone who posts on one of these message boards said I had done such a thing. This person heard Jim Dunaway and myself laughing at people calling off the air who had "sources" telling them everything from Courtney Taylor would never walk again to he had to be airlifted from the field. The difference is, we took the time to track down credible sources, including a member of Auburn's athletic staff, who were at practice. We reported the true story, a bruised or sprained knee, before we said anything else about the matter. We followed that up with an interview with Jason Caldwell of Inside The Auburn Tigers, who was at practice. Unfortunately, people seem to read and hear what they want to. It is even more unfortunate that people take what others say as the undeniable fact when they did not hear it themselves. I guess, however, I am in the wrong for expecting credibility out of someone who has so little belief in what they are saying that they will only write it under an assumed name. Auburn is my pick to win the SEC. Believe me, I am happy Courtney will be a part of that team. Thanks again for taking the time to write!
