As someone who is part of the world of journalism (and for those of you who are thinking that being a blogger doesn’t make me a journalist, I would have to remind you that my day job is as a sports reporter for a newspaper), I have mixed feelings about websites like TMZ. On one hand, I respect the fact that these people have a job to do and they obviously have an audience willing to listen. On the other hand, I know that getting in people’s business and exploiting them to the public isn’t exactly on the top of my “Favorite Things To Do” list. Regardless of what you think about TMZ, you need to take a look at their video of former St. Louis Rams defensive lineman/Super Bowl champion and current St. Louis radio personality D’Marco Farr. Farr is in Dallas/Fort Worth area for the Super Bowl, and he was caught on video going off on a valet at a local restaurant.
Let me just say that I was a huge fan of Farr when he was a player and I’m probably an even bigger fan of his radio work now. This post is in no way meant to shine a negative light on Farr, but as a Rams blogger I think it’s appropriate subject to discuss in this forum. Farr said he was extremely embarrassed today on the radio, but don’t worry D’Marco, we here at Ramblin’ Fan still love you. Here is a link to the video, so give it a look.
