The Triple Filter

When a select few HH commentors quoted "unnamed sources" saying Shanny didn't want RG3 to begin with, and the rag Bleacher Report stated "there's now a rift between Shanahan and Robert Griffin" the majority of HH said "before wasting your breath telling us anything more would you mind taking a little test? It's called the triple threat filter."

"Before you talk about Heisman winner, Redskins record holder, NFL Rookie of the Year Robert Griffin III, a guy who more than once has achieved a perfect NFL QB rating, it might be a good idea to take a moment and filter what you’re going to say, so you don't come across as a DB. The first filter is Truth. Have you made sure that what you are about to say is true?"

"No," said the the commentors, "Actually we just heard about it and ..."

"All right," said HH readers. "So you don’t really know if it’s true or not. Now let’s try the second filter, the filter of Goodness. Is what you are about to say something good?"

"No, on the contrary…"

"So," said HH readers, "you want to tell us something bad about RG3 that you’re not certain it’s true. You may still pass the test, because there’s one filter left: the filter of Usefulness. Is what you want to tell us going to be useful?"

"No, not really …"

"Well," concluded HH readers, "if what you want to tell us is neither true nor good nor even useful, why tell it to us at all?"
