Where is Mr. Lombardi?

Is there any accountability in journalism?

Following this story by Chappell at the Star, its hard to see why Lombardi said Sanders would never play again.


He even tweeted that he stood by his story and that the Colts were lying. I'm wondering if BBS ever managed to get in touch with NFL.com on this issue and if Lombardi has a response to Sanders taking the field yesterday.

It seems to me that Lombardi should have to make a statement saying he was wrong about the issue. I would really like to know who is "source" was so they care share some of the blame as well. This is seriously irresponsible journalism and its the kind of thing that is becoming more rampent as the field expands. Journalists should not be given a pass when they report on something that is blatently wrong and should be required to issue some sort of statement explaining themselves.

Poor analysis or irrational statments, like the Jets being ranked #1 in pre-camp polls, dont bother me so much and add fuel to the conversation, despite how absurd it may be. But this type of reporting, coupled with zero accountability infuriates me and makes me question why some of these individuals have a job. As a student working on his Masters in journalism, it further enrages me as its the kind of story that would get me an 'F' from my professors due to it being an unsubstantiated statement.

I want to hear what Lombardi has to say for himself. Somebody let me know if you have heard anything.
