Misinformation a disturbing trend at NFL Combine
http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/thedaily ... l-combine/
An isolated incident? We wish. Two days earlier I had been introduced to an Arizona reporter in a hotel lobby and mentioned that the Dolphins and Cardinals had some interesting subplots cooking, referring of course to the Dolphins’ anticipated interest in Pahokee’s Anquan Boldin, linebacker Karlos Dansby and safety Antrel Rolle in coming weeks.
The reporter said he was hearing the same and that he was hearing Miami was willing to pay big money to Dansby. The reporter who introduced us sent out a Tweet to that effect moments later and Pro Football Talk picked it up and wrote a story about it. That’s how an offhand comment between two reporters turned into one of the big stories of the week.
Both reporters, who will remain nameless, should have known better. Both later regretted their Tweets, but they need to know once they’re out there it’s too late to take them back.
