Dictates that you engage in character assassinations and misrepresent the truth at every turn.

Throw in a dash of "I hate college football" and there's your complete answer.

There's no way David Hale hates CFB

He tweets like a hundred times per day about it.

He covers the ACC for ESPN which has essentially turned him into a Clemson beat reporter in recent years because the rest of the ACC is largely irrelevant in CFB (with the exception of ND for this season only). As such, it's his job to write stories about Clemson and Dabo.

I don't know what the OP is referencing here, but i just read the article linked below and I don't see anything wrong with it at all. Dabo willingly made this a talking point by voting OSU 11th and Hale didn't force him to comment on it for a story. Props to Dabo for going big balls on OSU and giving them amazing bulletin board material before taking a dump all over them Friday though. That's going to be a serious flex.

Since nobody is providing context for the OP, I will.

Hale asked 3 different Clemson players (yesterday I believe) about Dabo’s “controversial” comments from last summer. Trying to stir up old controversy. The players handled themselves well and didn’t give him any click bait headlines...

Seems like he should have been asking them about the game Friday, but whatevs.

Dabo makes a lot of comments the media seems to term controversial. Care to narrow that down a little bit for us? I’ve lost count of all the things he has said that have ruffled the feathers of the media.

FYI thanks for the context.

He didn’t specify which comments he was talking about. Implied that Dabo just runs his mouth and asked how that affected the players. Sounded like he was pointing to last summer specifically but I suppose he was probably including the last couple weeks as well. The players did a good job of backing him up. Said they didn’t like the way outsiders were poking at him because they know him and what he believes.

Why in the world am I having to report on player interviews...where’s the TNet crew?

How is it that the liberals are always the butt hurt ones, yet people like you are the ones constantly complaining about liberals?

I could be wrong, but IMO, if someone is upset over politics to the point of having to constantly post about it on a football forum, then I’d say they’re pretty butt hurt themselves.

Jump all over Hale and his perceived motives. Try the flip-side, though...he's done enough interviews with Clemson and has been on the receiving end of Dabo's barbs (Clemsoning ring a bell?). Perhaps he knew how the players would respond and wanted those comments 'on the record' as a testament to the players' character and the belief Dabo has in them to 'do right'.

I could be wrong...and the glass could be half empty...2! ;)

I have not paid a lot of attention to David Hale until I saw his name here, so I made sure to listen to his questions when listening to interviews with Clemson coaches and especially players ..... and I have heard them all.

Does this prick know anything about football or is he merely a social justice warrior I'm not against social justice, but it seems like every question is designed to try and get a fracture in the relationship between Dabo and the players. I am proud of all of our players for not falling into the trap.

Good lord. What’s with the faux outrage?

Either David Was trying to stir the pot which means he didn’t know what the payers were going to say and was hoping for controversy

Or

He covers the team quite a bit, knows the culture and what the players were going to say thus giving them a platform to support Dabo and us free positive pub.

Which do you think is more likely???
