Paul Finebaum loves taking shots at Clemson.
It feels like at least once a month, the longtime ESPN personality is taking some kind of shot at Clemson, or the fan base that so loyally follows the program.
The Spun website even recently questioned whether Clemson was the program that Finebaum hated most. Whether that is true or not, the question I ask, is why do Clemson fans care so much?
Scrolling social media sites, every time Finebaum says something about Clemson, the most common response is “Who cares?” However, a lot of the fans out there obviously do. At least enough so to click on something to see what was said.
Ever notice that each time he says something about the Tigers, almost every website dedicated to covering Clemson writes about it? Ever wonder why? Because the fan base flocks to it. It generates tons of clicks, which in turn generates at the very least more publicity for Finebaum himself.
Want to see less of what he says? Quit clicking on the stories. Quit giving him a reason to put Clemson in his crosshairs as often as he does. Quit giving credence to what he says.
And even if he doesn’t stop dumping on Dabo Swinney and the Tigers, ignoring those stories would eventually result in some of the sites publishing less of the vitriol that he spews.
When he says Swinney and Clemson are both yesterdays news, scroll on by. When he says Clemson is done, again, scroll on by. Show that you really don’t care.
Finebaum’s job is to spark conversation and at times to “create controversy.” Stop caring what he says about Clemson, regardless of what it is. Quit clicking. Give him a real reason to move on to the next target.
