Dating gossip is not getting on this blog

Well, I never thought I'd see the day, but unlike the mantra of this blog, there are some taboo subject here after all.

Look, if there is a trade rumor, I surely will follow it and tell you all I can about it. If there is a coaching rumor, I surely will follow it and tell you all I can about it. If there is a lineup change, this is the place to be. If there's a cross exchange among teammates media or opponents, you'll read about it here. If there is a movement in contract talks I will give you all I can. If there is a domestic issue that truly affects a player's status with the team or league, then yes, it will be written about here.

But a player's dating life? Rumors about who he's having dinner with?

Nope. I'm not going to do it. I'm not going to go there unless he brings it up and makes it public and even then I will address here only it if it affects on-field matters.


So if you want to know the latest Dolphins dating gossip in general and one player's deal in particular, then you're in the wrong place. This blog has its goofy moments, yes. But for the most part we do big-boy journalism over here.

So off you go if you wish to discuss the dating escapades of any player -- much less the escapades as chronicled by a website whose reporting I cannot account for or trust.

I know you know what and who I'm talking about. I hope you can understand me drawing the line.

If it costs readers or page views, that's fine.

Anyway, I just wanted to give you a heads up on the ground rules relative to the matter. I've never had to address them before because it was never an issue before.

Now it apparently is an issue. And now you know where I stand.
