Clemson fans have always been paranoid that ESPN has been privately rooting against them because of their monetary interest with their SEC Network and now an ESPN host Jason Fitz on College Football Daily shared on Monday that he is actively rooting against Clemson.
"When we came into this show to start the year I didn't have a favorite team," Fitz said. "I don't have any team I root for or any team I root against. I just love college football as a whole. I have gone through this season trying to be as unbiased and impartial as humanly possible. If there is any one thing that has come from my first season hosting a college football television show it is you have given me a reason to have a rooting interest. But it's not a rooting interest for it's a rooting interest against. I am here to tell you all that I now actively root against Clemson. Not just now and not just until the end of the year but until you guys turn it around. When I say you guys, I don't mean anything on the field. I mean all of you jerks on social media. You sit there, and you watch TV, and you say that you want players to act like they represent the school. You say you want your coaches to act like they represent the school. And then you represent the school like jerks on social media. I'm tired of it. You guys are now the reason I am anti-Clemson."
WOW...maybe he should deactivate his Twitter account if it's too stressful for him to deal with fans on social media.
If this whole ESPN host gig doesn't pan out, he can always go back to fiddling.
