Raggin the Rags

Ok, it's popular for Tech fans to hate the AJC because of their percieved unfairness to the program at times. Whether it's giving the Mutts more due than they deserve to highlighting their losses more than Tech wins, there will always be people who hate the AJC. While they have improved their coverage with Matt Winklejohn, I still wonder why they put stuff in there like this:

Almost twice as many television viewers in metro Atlanta watched Georgia lose to Florida as watched Georgia Tech beat Miami, according to Nielsen Media Research. The games went head-to-head on TV, both kicking off at 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

Interesting fact? Not really. Relavent? Not so much. But if you want an explanation into the ratings, think traffic accident on the highway. Think rubber-necking. People don't want to admit it, but they like to peek during horror movies when the guy gets his throat slashed. It's that deep dark part of you I guess.

But AJC, thanks for pointing it out.
