Rob Parker is a DMF. Dumb Mutha #@##er. He was driven out of the Detroit area sports market because he's a DMF.

RGIII specifically avoids talking about partisan politics.

A Detroit Columnist Caught Making Stuff Up? Surely Not

by Rick Chandler || October 29, 2008

Detroit News columnist Rob Parker really doesn't appear on my radar screen much, except for this infamous column, and of course his work on the dearly departed Quite Frankly with Stephen A. Smith. So that's two strikes against him right there. But now comes the news that he apparently fabricated sources that said a Michigan State quarterback was involved in a recent assault of another student. He first defended his statement, made this past Sunday on the WDIV-TV Sports Final Edition show that he co-hosts, and then backtracked and apologized for the whole thing today. Parker had said on the air that Kirk Cousins, a backup quarterback for Michigan State, was involved in a fight between Michigan State football and hockey players at a party in East Lansing. One problem: Cousins' parents — who live in Holland, Mich. — say that their son was at home all that evening. MSU head coach Mark Dantonio was also not amused.



Apparently, Parker didn't learn his lesson the first time.
