Even in an age of reduced sensitivity due to Twitter and other social media, that ESPN writer needs to be fired by the end of the day. He showed incredibly terrible judgment and a major lack of sensitivity.
Here are the latest headlines from a number of sources concerning the death of Alabama — and former Tennessee — offensive lineman Aaron Douglas:
The Tuscaloosa News has a wrap on the situation.
The Montgomery Advertiser says the specifics on the death are still unclear.
This columnist for The Birmingham News says the death of Douglas only brings more suffering to the Alabama family.
The website Al.com reports that Douglas left a lasting impression on his Bama teammates.
A former Tennessee teammate tells The Knoxville News Sentinel that Douglas had a “great heart.”
WTEV-TV in Jacksonville reports that alcohol, marijuana and other drugs were likely used at the party Douglas took part in on Wednesday night.
ESPN is feeling some heat — and apologizing — after a writer callously looked at what Douglas’ death meant for the Tide’s offensive line prospects.
The network also has its own wrap on the situation.
