Vilma has words for Peter King

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; This actually pissed me off enough that I am going to cancel my subscription with SI today. I don't agree with the bounty bs, but there are no hard facts to show what J Vilma did or didn't do. Disrespect....

Exactly. You want to be disrespectful, say it to my face. If you aren't man enough to do that, keep it in your head.

That might've been the case a decade a go, but nowadays it seems that this is how these type of matters are handled more and more, since it gives the people a chance to "eavesdrop" on the conversation making it a kind of a spectator sport in itself.

I agree that it was not classy, but it was totally in line with how today's societies seem to function - or malfunction, depending on how you want to perceive it.

I meant the reasoning behind the comments should be addressed personally.

Reporters can't be expected to say face to face everything they write, but when a conflict arises talk about it privately, not thru social media, unless you're just playing around acting mad just to draw attention.

Peter King had no right to even say Vilma's name about the situation. Then to try and back out of it when Vilma confronted him and say "its the investigation, not me" was very childish if it was about the investigation and not his own personal feelings about Vilma then he would have said that in the first tweet....Vilma was right when he said he's a glorified blogger because he is. Vilma probably shouldn't have responded but when you are called out by name like that by someone who's supposed to be this all world type of sports journalist in a disrespectful way for ALL the world to see....I can understand why he wanted to defend himself. King even went about it like a coward because he didn't @ Vilma in the tweet... he thought Vilma wouldn't see it & I guarentee you he was shocked when he saw he Vilma actually saw his tweet...

I'm proud that Vilma called out ten tons of fun, PK once again shows that he's a hack and NFL company troll. Vilma's tweet also shows that he's pushing back after taking all this bull that the media has been spewing about him and his defense

I hope Vilma is not overly punished. We can use his motivation during our SB run later this year.

I had a dream last night. In my dream, ESPN made the decision to shut down its web site. It cited poor traffic and indicated this was due to its increasing lean to sensationalism as opposed to actual reporting.

And you're right Danno, it IS beneath both of them. Reporters report...that's fine...REPORT...but leave the assumptions to the reader. Vilma is accurate to say that King (and just about every other 'sports reporter') has become a glorified blogger. There is a BIG difference as you know. "I" blog, because I don't have 'sources'. Sadly those who DO have sources have done a terrible job with this story.

Some LSU player's wonderlic score made an ESPN web page yesterday. Seriously. That's not sports reporting. Ryan Leaf STILL makes headlines on ESPN (and other sites too) and it's sad.

I say give him hell Vilma.

I am the Genie of Sound. Everybody get down!

Actually, I thought Vilma handled it with class. Please please please stay a Saint.
