With Apologies to Lions Fans Everywhere

A couple of days ago, I wrote a Bleacher Report Column about OLB Aaron Curry being snubbed by Martin Mayhew for the second time. I published it without proofing it, or verification of “facts” shared with the audience.

A Cardinal sin for any writer, misstating facts is literary suicide.


To say that I blew it would be a monumental understatement. I violated your trust, and forfeited my credibility as a writer. It’s unforgivable, and I do not seek your forgiveness.

After some agonizing reappraisal, I have to confess that I have no excuse for the inexcusable. I have never tolerated laziness in others, nor, will I tolerate it in myself.

Oh, I suppose that I could rationalize it with the admission that I’m an old fart, but this leads me to wondering if this is a manifestation of something more insidious—dementia.

Whether this is the case, or not, I honestly have no clue.

In any case, I have no excuse. You deserve the best that a writer can share and nothing less.

Finally, I’d like to apologize to Bleacher Report, the fine editorial staff, and members of the Detroit Lions community for the damage that I have done to the credibility of the site.

Please accept my resignation as a featured columnist and contributor effective immediately.
For Lions fans everywhere, I offer my most humble and sincere apologies.
