The story that just won't die, despite the facts

So, yeah, the NFL accepted CBS's statement that they were at fault for the odd sound glitch at the Patriots v. Colts game last week; thus making Patriots owner Bob Kraft and his monkey boy son, Jonathan Kraft, look like even bigger a-holes than their head coach for claiming (without proof) that the Colts were cheaters. Yet, despite the NFL ending the story, people just don't want the rumor to die:

A day after some unusual sounds were heard during the Colts-Patriots broadcast Sunday, the NFL issued a statement saying what sounded like simulated crowd noise at the RCA Dome was actually created by the CBS production crew, not the Colts.

But WBZ Photojournalist Bryan Foley says an unidentified RCA Dome security guard told him Sunday that the Colts do enhance the crowd noise.

Foley has been shooting sports for more than a decade. He was covering the game for WBZ-TV and claims the noise in the RCA Dome was deafening when the Patriots had the ball.

"It was almost silent when the Colts had the ball," he said.

The noise was so bad he asked a security guard about it.

"I asked him, 'Do you go home at night with a headache? Because it's early in the first quarter and my head is already hurting.'"

"He said, 'I don't know if you know this, but they actually pick up the crowd noise and pump it back through the P.A. (public address system)'"

Tip to biosBSOD for writing about this earlier. So, an anonymous guard is talking to a cameraman. That's it? That's the source? I kind of shake my head at the whole thing because, well... who gives a crap about what some anonymous security guard claims? If he claimed Martians walked among us, or that Jonathan Kraft is a transsexual, would you believe him?
BigBlueShoe spoke with an anonymous trans-gendered prostitute who works on 38th Street, and "she" claims that Patriots President Jonathan Kraft is actually "Johanna" Kraft. And yet, despite the sex change, "Johanna" is still a douche bag.

Look, I know it's hard for media whores to understand that a rumor can sometimes just be a rumor, but this is getting stupid folks. I'm still waiting for the NFL to order Bob and Jonathan Kraft to issue a written apology to Jim Irsay and the Colts fans for insulting them. It won't happen, but since his claim has been shown to be total and complete horse crap, he should be held accountable for publicly claiming another team "cheats," only to be shown up as dead wrong.

Again folks, this is what the media calls "news": Anonymous rumors spread by a friggin' cameraman who works for a Boston TV station. Pathetic.

With that, I turn it over to JakeTheSnake for this week's O Rly Moment:
