Do you require your Irrigation company to disclose their income statements? I don't see the difference.

The term "journalist" is just a term...just like "blogger". Peter Abraham is a blogger, Gordon Edes is a blogger, but they're also journalists. The fact that their place of employment is bigger and more reputable is the only difference.

I think you need to give some credit to those that are building these websites and careers from the ground up. Asking a website who is just getting their feet wet to start disclosing their income is overkill. If you suspect them of wrongdoing or getting hand-outs then take it up with the personally, and/or don't read their site.

I agree 100% with Jeremy's post.

In the future if you don't like the way Jeremy talks or doesn't talk about your child's aau program, then take it up with him on his web site or via e-mail. To come over to this Forum and fire BASELESS accusations and to call some one's integrity into question is 100% wrong.

I applaud Jeremy for his response and support him 100% for his stand.

I'm pretty sure most journalists do disclose when they may have a conflict of interest. I'm not sure if these are rules or just good ethics. Perhaps you are right in this age of the internet that there is no difference anymore.

I think Jeremy blog is great to help promote kids, there is not a lot of money in blogs or AAU unless you run a huge program and have numerous teams at all age levels.

So I am pretty sure Jeremy is not getting rich doing either. So even if he is slants his coverage to certain programs because he is affiliated with them so be it.

I think that he was working at the Rac when he starting this blog but I could be wrong.

I also read NERR and I am pretty sure they are affiliated with an AAU program and Hoop Mountain.

ESPN promotes women's college basketball on sports center because they have the games on their channel.

If you want your child to get more pub start your own blog.

I think the problem is that some people with the best intentions “hype” the players too much. The players and their parent read this and believe it, when the facts are they ARE NOT THAT GOOD!
Parents and players also surround themselves with people, primarily AAU coaches who do not have the player’s best interest in mind.
For example I know of an above average player who will only amount to being an average D3 player at best. He pays approx. $2000 to play on an AAU team. The AAU coach has a buddy, who is a prep school coach and now he is going to prep school at a cost of $50K to sit behind two D1 scholarship players who play the same position as him. The player did not even dominate high school ball last year!!
In general, players and parents want to here only the good and pay to hear it, one can pay for a lot of things but talent is not one of them.
