WOW, ESPN's Mark Schlabach (The Author of the BS Miller wiretap story) has finally come out of hiding to write an article about Miller having to forfeit 1 Million dollars if charged with a crime or violation.  The funny thing is he has four short paragraph's on Miller's new clause in his contract to forfeit 1 Million if found guilty of crime or NCAA violation & goes on for 6 paragraphs on FBI/Wiretap BS. He still seems to be standing by his story & doesn't make much of the latest Miller news.  I can't believe this guy is still has a job.  Check out his story below.

That's some Bullshit! He writes "Last month, ESPN reported that FBI wiretaps" Schlabach can't even write "Last month, I reported. ESPN is now a joke to all other sports media because of this guys wiretap report that has more holes in it than a golf course does. This guy better stay off of social media or he is going to get completed annihilated by the fans & he knows it. Hopefully, he's fired sooner or later.

I doubt he'll get fired.  Trump isn't the only one who thinks even bad headlines are good because they get your name in front of more people.  ESPN is getting it's name in print more because they published the idiot's biased, unfounded claims. 

This is one of many methods created by greedy, power hungry people/companies.  Professional Con men use stuff like this also.

He doesn't mention anything about Sean Miller being the one to initiate the contract change. Did he? I thought I had read something that it was Sean Miller's idea to add that to his contract.

sinister way to twist a story to suit his needs, simply leave out the bit about Sean agreeing to this contract change

the way ESPN is treating Miller is simply wrong, screwing UofA and the fans in the process

What is the deal with this guy? Does he have some sort of vendetta against Miller? The UofA? Or does he just hate freedom in general?  :P

What editor in their right friggin mind would let this man TOUCH a story related to Sean Miller?  Especially one relating to financial consequences if he violates the law or NCAA rules?  After all the scrutiny that story has been through, essentially disproved my multiple outlets, how do you let him touch this subject?!!?!  I know it is unlikely to happen, one would have to prove Shlabach knew what he was reporting was false, but I would love so much to see Sean Miller renting out Shlabach's house as he takes all of his money and assets.  No wonder ESPN is failing.  Just deleted my ESPN account the other day.  BOYCOTT ESPN!!!

Agreed.
Social media (Twitter) has changed the journalism game.
Before, you would do your research, get all the facts, THEN you break the story, which could be weeks after the news initially broke.
Now, you thumb out a tweet as soon as you get word because you want the credit as the one who “broke” the news.

I wish their was someone who REALLY wanted to give Arizona a fair shot and gave us a chance to say our piece.
Not that Miller or Ayton would ever say, “Yeah we did that...” but to show that there is no evidence (to date) aside from words on a report and no leaking of any video conversation.
I wish their was a way reporters took take a hit to their reputation for false or over-exaggerated reporting; the same way we get hit when we get a DUI on our ricing record.

Their coverage of these infractions has been so unbalanced.  If you only read ESPN, you'd think USC and Arizona were the only ones involved.  They gave the recent Kansas revelations no coverage, hardly anything on the ACC and SEC schools.  Seems like we are the only ones that have had to pay with lost recruits and that is 100% because of ESPN's coverage and Shlabach's pretty baseless story.
