John Calipari target of Lexington paper carton

I have to admit that I always pull for the SEC teams to win but I made an exception when Kentucky made it to the final four this year. Maybe the point of this carton below had something to do with it. I am not a Tennessee fan but I pull for them to beat Kentucky everytime they play.

The Herald-Leader continues to dig its own grave, almost to six-feet

by Drew Franklin @ 10:40 am. Filed under Blue Blooded Opinions

This political cartoon making fun of John Calipari ran in the Lexington Herald-Leader today and I have a very good feeling it isn’t going to go over well.

I feel sorry for whoever is working the newspaper’s cancellation desk because it’s going to be a busy day on the phones. I hope they packed a lunch.

    May 8th, 2012 at 10:41 am I honestly can’t believe people still subscribe to that crap paper.

    May 8th, 2012 at 10:42 am Wtf?

    How could you be so dumb to run something like this?

    I don’t have a HL subscription, but I’m going to call and cancel anyways.

    May 8th, 2012 at 10:42 am Joel Pett, the cartoonist, was a longtime political cartoonist at the Bloomington Herald Telephone (aka the Horrible-Terrible) during the Knight years.

    May 8th, 2012 at 10:43 am Who knew Jerry Tipton could draw?

    May 8th, 2012 at 10:43 am I think it’s time that KSR stops mentioning them in daily news. But you have to have something to put in here, right?
  6. James K Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:43 am That’s the most insulting thing I’ve seen from the LHL. I never read their paper, and they are just trying to get people to come to the site. Unbelievable. If Cal threatened to shut them out before, what is it going to be like now?

    May 8th, 2012 at 10:44 am They even have John Clay jumping on the bashing bandwagon today…….idiots.
  8. RCS Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:47 am I generally think fans overreact to the local media, but I must say the HL has taken a pretty negative stance on UK. Tipton really is a caricature this point, coming up with new and creative ways to spin stores to the negative. That said, it has lost almost all of its relevance so I don’t think it really matters.

    May 8th, 2012 at 10:47 am 5- If you don’t like it, go to a different website and stop coming to this one.
  10. Used to be a HL reader Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:49 am Ever since I found KSR, I stopped checking the HL website. Thank you KSR, and R.I.P. HL.

    May 8th, 2012 at 10:50 am WOW, are they trying to put the Herald under? unbelievable

    May 8th, 2012 at 10:50 am The Herald Mis-Leader
  13. JMF Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:50 am Just dumb business move on HL’s part. They wonder why subscription #’s continue to decline.
  14. G Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:50 am Joel Pett is lucky that he doesn’t have a Twitter
  15. Wow Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:50 am The LHL has been irrelevant to me for a long time. I don’t read it, link to it, or think about it.
  16. MKG Fan Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:50 am Time to short sell LHL stock.
  17. catcard202 Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:51 am IMO, UK should just disassociate themselves from the LHL / any LHL employee & be done w/ it. Revoke all access, deny any request made & be VERY PUBLIC as to WHY the LHL has been banished (via other media avenues).
  18. El Stumperino Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:51 am Dollar signs on the trophy, that’s uncalled for and totally offensive.
  19. mateotemprano Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:51 am was this drawn by joel pett or “not joel pett”?

    never mind– the LHL is incapable of self-deprecating satire…

  20. Jezz Says:
    May 8th, 2012 at 10:52 am This newspaper needs to die slowly and painfully.

    This is the LEXINGTON Herald Leader. Go away if you want to hate on the University of Kentucky or just accept the bankruptcy that’s coming your way.

    Prediction:Calipari’s Wildcats will win with comeback in last 2 minutes over Kansas
