Saban says some reporters for recruiting fan sites have been unfair in what they are telling prospects about Alabama's situation. He said that the writers have been passing on to 2010 prospects incorrect and potentially damaging information about what the sanctions mean for UA. "That should be addressed by somebody and should be brought to bear," Saban said. "If people are just covering recruiting with honesty and integrity, (there's no problem). But all those guys that work out there for (recruiting sites) are for the school. Everybody roots for a team. And they get information for a team."

Saban asks for integrity from recruiting sites - al.com Good points in this article about the shadiness of various recruiting services. The guys that work for them are obviously interested in their team's success, and considering they have unlimited access to these kids while coaches can only have (limited) contact with them for certain periods of time, it's not hard to believe that a) recruiting service writers could use their positions to influence a recruits thinking and b) some unscrupulous coaches would take advantage of this loophole to make sure prized targets continue to hear their "sell" while also feeding them the negative line about rival programs. Hopefully something will come of this.
