I could not take the obscenities any longer . . .

So . . . Last night before I fell asleep, I emailed USA Today to notify them of the obscenities and horrid racial slurs on their High School Website. I'm sorry if my "snowflakyness" isn't to your liking, but those comments were uncalled for.


Here is their (USA Today) reply:

"Hello: Thank you very much for alerting USA TODAY to the comments on the poll pertaining to Bryan Bresee. The comments section has been disabled. Normally we disable comments before publishing a poll to avoid this kind of thing. A mistake was made here and we appreciate you noting it and reaching out.

Steve Henson
Senior Editor
USA TODAY Sports Media Group"


My biggest disappointment in those comments was the unsettling fear they came from one of us. How could we?
Were any of us raised to reply or retaliate is such a vulgar manner? What drives an individual to stoop so low?

Whomever that individual is, they hold no worth, no value to me. They are despicable to me.

But guess what?

I am not now, nor will I ever be, judge nor jury on their worth. My Savior sees them as precious and worthy of forgiveness, worthy to be loved, worthy to die for.

So in that vain, my prayer is for God's Holy Spirit to convict that cold heart and foul mind with an everlasting loving hold until he embraces and acknowledges the depth of his sins and the Glory of his Salvation!!!

May God have mercy on his soul and reach down to save his wretched self!!!



Ok, flame away . . . TD until your fingers are raw . . . but be careful, I'll pray for you too!

and can handle the snarky comments by our own.

Earlier it was asked if Bryan had seen this Poll? I know Coach Swinney's "go-between" Ashley Spiers and DRad have the USA Today Poll Site in their possession.

I have heard from another tnetter that our Coaches and Bryan himself were tweeted the same information.

Yes, Bryan is aware of the site and our Coaches are aware.


Vote if you want . . . Quit if you want . . . "Snark" if you want


I choose to vote until he decides.


Again, the TD button is yours to use.

we have no right to be offended. That's a reflection of righteousness which is, never was and never will be ours without the Blood of Christ. In all my 47 years of being adopted into the Holy Family never has God once commissioned or authorized me to be offended by anything but the sin in the depths of my heart and that which remains in my life.

I pray you'll continue to grow and someday become aware of our charge and God's wants for our lives.

Thank you, I was wondering how they could let that go on. Not something I would want kids reading. Totally uncalled for

I am grateful you were both spared . . .

motormouths would rarely dare to speak publicly in the same manner.

My attitude is they should be "brave" enough to post under their real names and addresses; however, internet anonimity often allows for concocted bullying. We see it here on TigerNet, and, unfortunately, many of us are guilty of the same.

I applaud your efforts, am happy you were able to achieve results, and offer my best wishes.

I didn't see the comments myself, but thank you for having the decency to do something about it.


What obscenities are you talking about?

The last thing I read on there was the bee-meister. Nothing up to that point was obscene.
