On3 CEO Shannon Terry is the latest to accuse Alabama football coach Nick Saban of being disrespectful to the local media.

Terry, who founded major networks Rivals, 247Sports and now On3, said the following in a now-deleted post on X.

SEC Network analyst Paul Finebaum previously said Saban displayed “petulance and indecision,” in addition to bullying local media, by refusing to release a depth chart ahead of Alabama football's first game against Middle Tennessee this past weekend.
