Yahoo Sports writers Jason Cole and Charles Robinson scooped the dead-tree media with their 8-month investigation of Heisman-winner Reggie Bush taking way too much cash and swag while at USC. Local blog Indepndent Sources sees the triumph of the on-line reporters as more bad news for the LA Times sports section, which had been badly hit by enforced cuts. The commentors see mis-placed Trojan loyalty in the press room.
And in one of those “so weird, it might be true” coincidences, John Crowley, Hollywood tv producer/blogger, questioned Reggie’s bling, back in January. Tabloid Baby thinks Crowley’s questions might have been the inspiration for the investigation. FBLA considers this a tich far-fetched, but then, who knows what people at Yahoo read?
Reggie doesn’t look like a guy who’d wear CZ.
