Not seen this mentioned on here:


I know a lot of people aren't fans of Duncan after bountygate (me included) but this does sound like a good read and insight into the relationship between Coach and Drew.

That was my first thought.
Yeah but I do feel bad for the OP, I didn't mean to dump on his thread or whatever but as soon as I saw that name I just had a visceral reaction.

It's not so much that Jeff Duncan can't have his own opinions.....but the first job of a journalist is holding truth to power. He certainly has not done that imo.

Yeah, not meaning to dump on the op or anyone who may want to read it. Just saying the content in the book should come with a huge negative bias disclaimer. I wouldn't trust Duncan to be intellectually honest and it wouldn't surprise me to see him interject a lot of opinion as fact.

Duncan's problem is that he cannot separate his feelings and opinions from his journalistic integrity.

Tough crowd LOL. If you read the review on Football Outsiders it does sound as though the book is more fact based than Scooter's opinion, but I was just passing it on really.
