    The DMR hawkeye slant

    I've been pretty skeptical of the criticism on this site of the DMR saying they favor the hawks. So, today I noticed several Twitter posts by @DMRsports with the #hawkeye tag and decided to do a little (very unscientific) study. In the last month (Oct. 4 - Nov. 4) the @DMRsports Twitter account has posted the #hawkeye tag 244 times. The #cyclone tag? 78

    Canceled my subscription.

    Re: The DMR hawkeye slant

    Not saying the DMR isn't biased towards the Hawkeyes, but pulling up the website's sport section, it would appear that the current three 'latest headlines' are all ISU related. Including one about a live chat with some guy named Chris Williams from some website called CycloneFanatic.com

    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Re: The DMR hawkeye slant

    Now that they post all their Hawkeye stories on the Press Citizen site the internet sports page does not look as Hawkeye homer as it used to. I've not read a print edition since the PETA flap year ago so I have no idea what that looks like.

    Well, if that's not solid statistical evidence to disprove the theory of Hawk bias, then I don't know what is!

    Re: The DMR hawkeye slant

    Why must posters mock the OP? He threw out his thoughts on the DMR. If you don't find it interesting, don't reply. No need to be jerks about it
