This is RIDICULOUS.

Greg Cote just wrote an article talking about how great South Florida sports is, and mentions several different sporting teams and events, even mentions horse racing @ Gulfstream, cricket and sailing, and doesn't even make a single mention about FIU.
http://www.miamiherald.com/2012/02/13/2 ... -full.html

NOT. ONE. SINGLE. ACKNOWLEDGMENT.

This is UNACCEPTABLE!

WE MUST ALL CONTACT HERALD IMMEDIATELY, and we must also CONTACT FIU IMMEDIATELY. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH... and frankly some of it is FIU's fault for not doing whatever is necessary to prevent this disgraceful shiz from happening.

Additionally, there is also NO MENTION WHATSOEVER about the new C-USA/WAC super conference. This doesn't bother me at much, but Greg Cote straight up DISSED US. Be nice, but clearly state your case. This must stop.

considering cote writes an opinion blog, and he gets to write whatever the hell he wants, i doubt doing anything is going to sway him. it's pretty clear he's not a fan of FIU's and raising a stink about it to others will just make cote go "uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh okay" and the rest of the herald will collectively shrug their shoulders because they can't really make him change his opinion.

there are better trees to go barking to than this one, honestly.

Except that this wasn't a blog, rather an actual article he wrote. You are always amongst the first to protect and stand for Herald's anti FIU actions. What's that about?!? Yes, let's do as you say, keep quiet and allow this to continue. Before you know it, it'll be you, me and section 112 sitting all alone @ FIU stadium due to the utter lack and respect of FIU led by the Herald.

Honestly Quijote, let the football stadium be upgraded. Baseball season is about to begin and let them make some noise for FIU.

Greg is an FAU Alum d-bag.
He hates FIU and refuses to acknowledge anything positive ever. Best way to deal with him is to tell him to go F-himself when you see him.

article is an op/ed article (In My Opinion); all he writes are opinion pieces. i meant to say that instead of blog. whatever; it doesn't change what i meant.

he's actually allowed to write whatever the $$$$ he wants that isn't slander / libel. ignoring you isn't slander / libel. this isn't me "defending" his "anti FIU" actions (whether they are or not is not the point of debate), it's me telling you that you're wrong. straight up! if you want me to put it like that, his not mentioning FIU is his prerogative and his opinion, and nothing you can do or say will change that opinion, and therefore he doesn't have to write about FIU in his opinion piece. end of discussion.

it's been pretty common knowledge (or you'd hope it was by now, considering how often it's brought up) that there are quite a few FIU fans in the Herald, and they've said that FIU simply doesn't bring numbers. unfortunately it turns kind of into a chicken-or-the-egg situation where more people might be interested in FIU if they were covered better VS FIU would get covered better if there were more people interested in them. you take what they give you and work on it. i only read FIU articles on the herald (occasionally a Marlins/Heat one), and i only buy newspapers with articles i'd like to keep; they're all FIU articles. that's how i get my point across. i occasionally also send e-mail saying, hey, this FIU article rocked -- thanks.

you can shoot hyperbole if you want that it'll just be us fifteen or so hardcore fans (that you've mentioned) at the stadium one day, but considering we're averaging more and more in attendance with each game that passes and each step forward we take that i doubt that'll be the case.

take a deep breath, relax, realize that what cote says and does doesn't matter in the long run and just go back to getting ready for the baseball season. i'm personally looking forward to going to a few games this year for the first time.

tl;dr: cote is a $$$$ asshole but you aren't going to accomplish anything here

Cote is a big douche. I always tell him every chance I can. He is always going to bash FIU! F him, I rarely read Herald now. DJN has been Good to us, unlike clown of 'Weasley'.

i ignore anything on sports on the Herald that isn't on the Marlins, Heat or FIU.

The Herald not mentioning FIU isn't exactly a surprise, so that's that.

Wins = Coverage

Let's all memorize that formula shall we to avoid an aneurysm every time the Herald omits FIU from anything sports related.

Quijote is to the Herald what BGH is to Cristobal. One or both arguments may be justified. Both are tired.

The answer here is to sue Cote.
