    We all know where the advocate's loyalties lie and what they think of us. Of course they changed the name to please their target audience, their staffs interest, and whoever else has influence over that stupid paper. No surprises there, but all the advocate keeps doing is making themselves look more and more petty.

    He didn't write about us.....which only makes it worse. Although not mentioned in the article, when they pasted the list from PG they changed our name from 'Louisiana' to Louisiana-Lafayette. Being the a-holes that they are.

    How is he writing about us? Is he supposed to leave a blank spot in the ranking or article?

    The Advocate is petty on this. They determine how we are referenced on their site per their own style guidelines. I understand pointing out that they changed it, but I don't get how this is Luke Johnson "writing about us" when he covers LSU baseball. He merely points out we are the only other state team ranked at the end of the written part. Common practice on something like this. It's not an article about us

    I didn't say entire article was about us.

    boy that picture in his article though is a little obnoxious, if I do say so, if that guy was on Toronto I bet some would call for a bean ball...... in addition to the fact that they probably cheated on that same play, but no need to rehash those threads now.

    Luke Johnson has zero control over this issue.

    I think we had this conversation before..... so you are telling me he writes without the Lafayette and someone adds it in, that is extremely hard to believe....
    he definitely has control, he is not an indentured servant.... it isn't his fight to care, but I think some said same thing with dan McDonald, we need to solve the issue of whether a writer or broadcaster can be forced to do something or not, maybe they choose job over principle but it was still a choice and they were not forced to do something

    Yeah, again this has nothing whatever to do with Luke or the write-up.....his article does not mention us at all.
    It's the fact that when they (the editors I guess) posted the list they took the extra effort to change our name before they did so to fit their agenda.

    Maybe it's just not a big deal for everyone. It was the school name for awhile and it may take some awhile to adjust.

    The good news is the experts expect a very good season. However, just because someone is paranoid, it doesn't mean nobody's out to get them. JK
