    It doesn't "have to come with the territory". A little journalistic integrity goes a long way and many reporters learn that while in school for their trade. The fact that you excuse this is disturbing.

    I know you don't want it but it comes with the territory.

    Techag, we don't want media spin by a news outlet that wants to be our friend and then stab us in the back just the same all the while profiting off of it. Enough said.

    I have to disagree with you aggierose. Even before JFF came along, we were filling up the stadium. That's what makes the 12th man so awesome. Win or lose, our fans show up. And it'll be that way after JFF. We will continue to get good recruits and with a solid coaching staff, should be able to turn out great seasons!

    Rule number 1. Never pick a fight with the media, you'll lose.

    Wonder what's the over/under on the number of hours that will pass before Aggieland Outfitters receives a "Cease and Desist" letter regarding the use of the ESPN logo?

    Really? You wanted national attention, now complain because it's not the type of attention you want.

    If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen.

    I don't think anybody can deny the fact that he is one heck of a ballplayer. I love to watch him play.

    I'm tired of the negative media coverage of Manziel. He's a talented athlete with a competitive spirit and a passion for the game. It's exciting to watch him play. Without him, fans wouldn't fill the stadium and the A&M football program would fade from the limelight.

    I would like to have one of those Johnny Football autograph shirts the M.O.B. was wearing at Saturday's game.
