Where there’s smoke there’s fire – or so they say.
Mile High Sports reported earlier today that CB Tracy Porter was on the outs with the Broncos organization – that folks were displeased with his attitude and that the Broncos may be looking to move the former Saint.
Within about a half hour Mike Klis of the Denver Post reported that Porter was scratched from the San Diego game and remains day-to-day not because of his attitude, but because Porter had been suffering from “pre-seizure” conditions. Klis reported that Porter had been wrestling with seizure related issues since August. Others raised the possibility that these seizures could possibly relate to the altitude in Denver – which would explain why they never came up in N.O..
I find it odd that there had been no mention of the seizure issue prior to Mile High Sports’ earlier report. The public (and the NFL)had been told that he had an “illness” and nothing more.
Once MHS’s “source” gave them the attitude story, however, it seems as though the team scrambled the PR machine – got hold of the Post and got the seizure story out there as fast as possible.
Now Mile High Sports is also acknowledging the seizure story – but not denying that the reports about Porter being a bad egg remain true.
Reading between the lines, I believe MHS’ original report. The way everything went down today, it’s tough not to smell spin control.
Porter was not too happy about the MHS report, either. He Tweeted this about an hour ago:
And for the “genius” reporting I’m going to get traded/released bc of an “attitude”, that’s why u don’t work for ESPN. Get your facts str8
