Yeah I heard LT squash those rumors this morning. We all need to go back to 3rd grade; where the teacher tells one student something and that student passes the message on to another student, who does the same thing. And so on and so forth. By the time the last student gets the message it's totally distorted.

Take that and apply it to pretty much everything you hear or read from the media. Chances are pretty good you should take what you hear with a grain of salt.

I love how today's media cites "sources," but when you track down those sources they end up being other media sources and usually opinion-based bloggers. Of course, that can be blamed completely upon social media. Back when I was "in the media" nobody published anything without absolute verification from at least two sources that did not include another media outlet or one source that agrees to be quoted in the report.

Times have changed, both for the best and the worst. News is disseminated far more quickly, which can be good, yet far too often, in a rush to be the first, incorrect information hits the "wire" without any proper vetting.

Antonio Gates on NFL Network just now verified he is definitely going to the ceremony and that he had the coach's blessings.

He needs to report to work like everyone else and get the team unity down.

Which he? Brees is flying right after practice and returning right away. He will not miss any team time. Gates said pretty much the same thing.
