  • Fargo Media Explodes over NDSU's arrogance

    NDSU is cutting off outlets from covering Bison athletics unless they’ve paid a media rights ramsom. As the links below show, many up north now think NDSU has gotten too big for their britches.

      McFeely's column is hilarious - a must-read.

      I suppose it is only a matter of time before the lawyers come after us for each time Lakes invokes the vaunted Brand here as well.

        The hilarious thing is that they are so concerned with their "brand", yet things like this have happened in the recent past:

        Even the NCAA doesn't seem to know who they are, let alone anyone outside the midwest.

        Find out what the other team wants to do, then take it away from them.

            This is crazy.

            What does it mean for the media of visiting teams?

              From what I've seen, NDSU isn't totally cutting off non rights-holding media from reporting on NDSU events, there are just limits on how much footage and stuff they can broadcast.

                    Are we sure the "brains" in the Hillary Clinton campaign aren't also running NDSU? All this is is an attempt to totally control the message, and limit access to friendly media. College sports media has always been way more of a lap dog, kiss a$$ culture than any pro sport. The NDSU dictators must have thought they could just up the game and kill off any negative publicity about their teams, law violations by the players and coaches, etc.

                        Sure about that? It's a total control the image, thought police kind of move. Fortunately, NDSU was shamed out of it, but the fact that they'd even consider it is total BS. Your rights paying media are almost always a bunch of a$$ kissers in college sports.

                            That's how we feel when you throw your repeatedly horrendous attempts at sarcasm into threads.
