Community remembers former DRC sports editor Durrett

Recommended Posts

Prominent sports figures in the Dallas-Fort Worth area offered their condolences to Richard Durrett’s family one by one late Tuesday as word of the well-known media figure’s death quickly spread.

TCU football coach Gary Patterson, Mavericks forward Dirk Nowitzki and Rangers broadcaster Eric Nadel all posted messages on Twitter, while Rangers manager Ron Washington simply called Durrett “a Texas Ranger” in an interview on MLB Network.

The news of Durrett’s sudden death at the age of 38 from undetermined causes was deeply felt in Denton, where the TCU graduate’s rise in the media business began.

Durrett began his career working for Denton Publishing Co., the parent company of the Denton Record-Chronicle. Durrett first worked at the Grapevine Sun in 1999 before moving on that year to the DRC, where he was the sports editor.

      This is the kind of hor$hit WB and the AD Dept has to deal with in regards to the Denton Record Chronicle.
      Our softball team and it’s new coach Rodney DeLong traveled last Friday to College Station and kicked ass.  They went  4-1 overall in the Aggie Classic that included a run-rule curb stomping Saturday of the host and 20th ranked A&M team 10-2, our first win over a ranked team in three seasons. 
      We won 9-0 over UNC and won 8-7 in an extra inning marathon (12) over Cal Baptist Friday evening.  We then run ruled A&M Saturday afternoon then lost by 1 in extra innings (9) Saturday evening to Cal Baptist.
      Then we run ruled Northern Colorado 8-2 Sunday morning.  
      So what do the morons at the DRC put accross the top of the sports page this morning?


      They print a headline teaser across the top of the sports page that UNT Softball “lose in tourneys”.
      No DUMBASSES!!!  North Texas WINS in tourneys!  North Texas outscored their opponents 40-17.  North Texas won Sunday’s game and went 4-1 in the tournament and kicked the crap out of the ranked team.
      And yeah, I know it’s the printed version and not online.  Despite what you may think or say a lot of potential donors/season ticket holders/supporters of NT Athletics still read the print paper.....but that’s completely beside the point here.  It’s the mindset and the negative attitude this paper has always had and always will as long as the Patterson (Ok State Alumni) family runs it.
      North Texas spends a lot of money advertising in that POS rag.  North Texas is Denton’s largest employer.  You’d think the days of the constant little negative jabs and back stabbing would be over?  It’s not. 
      Effing pisses me off man!!!
