Roy Cummings ‏@RCummingsTBO

Bucs DB Ronde Barber says anonymous quote asking if Bucs coaches can be sent "back to college" was "made up. I can promise you that.''

------------------
wouldn't be surprised if Florio talked to an agent of a player but credited directly the player saying it.

All anyone has ever heard is that the guys love Schiano. The media hates him, we know this. He isn't a good interview and people hate it.

\\\\\\\"This forum needs a poster like BucNY now more than ever\\\\\\\"

I am sure Florio is banned from the lockeroom, and the players wil not be talking to him.

Florio gives me the creeps.

Not a surprise. Even if a player felt that was about coach S, I think the entire locker room knows to keep their mouths shut, or they will be out of a job.

Maybe Florio accidentally texted Kellen Winslow and forgot he was no longer on the team.

Mike Florio, the curator of PFT, responded to Barber's comments by saying in an e-mail: "If Ronde is aware of every private communication in which his 52 teammates engage, that's even more impressive than his Hall of Fame playing career."


You gotta admit, that is a pretty good retort by Florio.

Yeah, J. Ronde Hoover, checking those dispatches.

Illuminator is a good poster. He sticks to his guns and makes good points. Some don\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\'t like that.

Hmmm who has more credibility? Ronde Barber or Florio? IMO, unless Florio comes out and says who the quote is from and backs himself up he loses this debate.

Whoa! Ronde Barber has all but accused Mike Florio, the creator, curator and overall guru a ProFootballTalk.com, of fabricating an anonymous source.

For those who missed it, Florio reported Monday that an unnamed Buccaneer voiced frustration following the Bucs-Saints game and said, “Can we send these coaches back to college?”

Well, Tampa Tribune beat writer Roy Cummings asked Barber and other Bucs about it today, and Barber told Cummings, “That’s a (expletive) made up quote. No one said that. I can promise you that.’’

Florio delivered a classic comeback, “If Ronde is aware of every private communication in which his 52 teammates engage, that’s even more impressive than his Hall of Fame playing career.”

For years, Joe has regularly communicated with Florio on a variety of topics, and Joe must side with Florio — if there is a “side” in this squabble. Florio takes his credibility very seriously and has absolutely no incentive to make stuff up.

Ummm...when the article was posted on your website in the section called "rumor mill", how much cred are we really supposed to give it?

Just like Joe bucs fan posts crazy stories to drive web hits to charge more to advertisers so does Florio. One blogger defending another, never saw that coming. Oh yeah, that was sarcasm.

Big difference between a "Fan Blog" versus a national NFL news website, wouldn't you agree?

Both are blogs started by fans. Florio was/is a Lawyer and a fan of football who started the site. To my knowledge or any quick google searches I didn't see where he has any degree in journalism or any NFL playing experience to draw upon, and after seeing him in person I doubt he had any collegiate playing experience as well. Yes, he has news and a popular rumor mill and has contributing journalist that post on his site. But I consider the site a blog, that picks up news from other sources and reports a few stories of it's own.

One blog is just more popular than the other, but both are of the same ilk in my view.
