The release of DeSean Jackson has been, unsurprisingly, massively unpopular. In the lead up to DeSean’s exit, there was also anger, at the writers who said that this day was coming. They’re professionals and it would be low class for them to gloat. I, on the other hand, have no such qualms or standards. It’s time for a lot of people to eat crow.
But first, John my friend, you are off the hook on a technicality.
If DeSean gets traded this year, I will wear a diaper, paint my chest with the saying "I'm a moron" and walk down Broad St. -Market to South—

Now let’s get down to business…
The most anger was aimed at Jimmy Kempski, who was the first to report that DeSean’s days were numbered. I doubt but a few of these people will apologize to Jimmy. If they do, I’ll take them off. I can easily find others to replace them.
Jimmy Kempski's writing talent in a nut shell.—

That guy needs to calm down.
Geoff Mosher was the next to write about it, and got similar responses
With now two reports that DeSean was a problem, fans got angry.
Media continues to invent storylines just to make the offseason more interesting… these DeSean Jackson trade scenarios are bogus.—

I'm just so confused as to why we've suddenly got this smear campaign against DeSean.—

I wonder how much of this DeSean Jackson nonsense is a media invention. I'd guess 110%.—

So have the people that made up the DeSean nonsense apologized yet? Oh wait, never mind, this is sports media. It was "true at the time"—

The DJax stuff is getting out of control and it's 100% media created. Speculation is fine, but now he's "1 false step from being cut"? Ugh—

A request for the Philly/nat'l football media: please stop writing about Desean trade rumors. You're the ones fueling it. You can end them.—

DeSean stories would be non issue if not for media. So if by chance he's traded it'll be BC he overreacts to media. So this is on media—

Sounds to me like the media started the Desean Jackson "situation."—

Only people talking about trading Desean is the media. You clearly ignoring the fact he had his best season ever in Chip's offense. Idiots.—

Or wannabe insiders who know nothing
Okay, I'm going to put a stop to this: It is sounding extremely likely the CSN Philly report on Jackson is false. I don't think he's dealt.—

Particularly this guy, who follows the Incarcerated Bob model of “reporting” rumors:
