...to take things and put them completely out of context. Is it stupidity, or trying to manipulate readers? Or, is it a case of believing their readers are stupid?

One statement, at the conclusion of a season when talking about his team.
The other, after a practice when discussing a true freshman.

A clear case of bad reporting (or AL.com following their modus operandi.)

Was Sabin the guy that asked Saban what Sark's game plan was for A-day? If so, I can see his feelings being hurt a bit.

As to that tweet...no telling what he was thinking. It reminds me a lot of a former T-town news guy who had his feelings hurt on several occasions and took to twitter to voice them.

Here, there's no doubt, Sabin is trying to create controversy tying to imply he's caught Saban in double speak.

What is the context of both comments? The press acknowledging a player's accomplishments is a positive thing. Hearing things like what emanated from Trent Dilfer's mouth this week about our QB, that he's crack on top of ice cream" is cringeworthy. I'm sure coach Saban has to fight to keep his guys hungry enough to improve and grounded enough to keep listening to only his voice.

Personally, I could do without the constant usage of the expression "self-gratification" but I fear that is a strongly entrenched Sabanism by now.

Look at the dates in the original tweet.

1/7: presser following last season while discussing last years team.
4/13: presser immediately following a question about John Metchie and how he'll fit into the rotation based on his performance Saturday.

In simpler terms:

Saban discussing a season and the teams accomplishments.
Saban discussing the first scrimmage (public) and a true freshman.
