    Incredible. The Manti Teo story was bizarre a few years back but how did this go on for as long as it did? There are some very gullible and stupid people out there. Quite sad actually.

    When I read about something like this, I get around to wondering just how many people are behind all of SoSH's posters. A dozen?

    Volin continues to befuddle. Gronk's incentive-laden contract is bad for the team. The only way this makes sense is if Gronkowski is deciding how much he plays:

    Yeah, Ben, he was demonstratively pleading for the TD because of the incentives, not because he really did catch the ball. Absent incentives, he wouldv'e just walked away and said "touchdown smutchdown, who cares?"

    I sorta get what he's saying here: would you rather go to nine Super Bowls or six. But he's so dense, it's not funny.

    Since you dont get to decide before the game if you're going to win or lose, I'd guess most pro football players would rather be 0-10 in Super Bowls than 0-0.

    Saying 5-1 is better than 5-4 is like saying you’d rather finish 3rd (or worse) than 2nd.

    Yup, it’s the same as saying that Montana never losing a SB and winning four is superior to winning five and losing two. It completely ignores the fact that it’s more impressive to lose in the SB than to lose in the playoffs, or worse not make the playoffs at all. The only way that statement makes any sense is if your entire knowledge of the NFL consists of who played in the SB every year.

    Whatever, he’s a troll that likely has plenty of people on Twitter ready to react.

    Montana played for the Niners 12 years, started for the most part the last 10; won the SB 4 times, so let's compare the 6 years he was the full time starter to the 12 years Brady has been (I'm excluding 79 and 80 in the case of Montana; 00 and 08 in the case of Brady).

    In those 6 years Montana missed the playoffs once and won two (yes, two) playoff games. In two of the losses his team was held to a single field goal.

    In Brady's 12 years he missed the playoffs once, won 8 playoff games (pro rated to Montana's number of years that's still twice as many) and made the Super Bowl twice. I think all of us can come up with a list of who we think are/were pretty good quarterbacks who haven't done as well as that. He had a few bad games in there, but nothing as bad as Montana pair of 3's.

    I think this proves what an idiot Volin is.

    I got like 3 minutes in and just thought, "if the guys filming this don't give a shit, why should I?" Between the content and the unskippable ad before it, I think that'll be the last time I click on a Deadspin video for a while.

    Interesting, I didn't get an ad. I did get terrible content though. Which is a shame because with the right talent (and more than 5 cents of production value) that is a great concept.

    Gary Tanguay says he has received info on the Pats gameplan from multiple sources. Tanguay has revealed that James White is going to see increased playing time early in the game with Dion Lewis being on the field less than we have come to expect.

    I started writing a reply to that, but all it boiled down to was "Is Tanguay an idiot?". And I think that there is overwhelming evidence, even prior to this, to support that

    T&R keep talking about Roche not going to Sox spring training. Anyone know why?

    No idea, but I do legitimately feel bad for him. He seems to truly enjoy it and his interviews get me pretty hyped for the upcoming season

    The Athletic feels like The National all over again. They're putting together a stellar roster of writers, but it's hard to believe paying all those high-level writers and editors is going to be sustainable.

    I don't know, this is a way different media environment than 1990. Wasn't the National's ultimate failing that they weren't really offering something the audience wanted, that is local sports coverage better than the local paper? They're pretty close to doing that now, with newspapers being on their knees.

    Plus the clean web experience and subscription costs make it different than Grantland, which was also an attempt to recreate The National.

    Emma Span and James Mirtle are pretty big gets for baseball and hockey coverage.

    Roche is literally the *only* sideline/stands/dugout "reporter" that ever brought anything to any broadcast Ive watched in the last 20 years or so, when he had the Sox gig on one of their broadcast channels. Maybe he had more freedom, but now its little more than rehashing everything you missed on the pregame show. Even if that's discussing the segment where today's starting pitcher talks about his good health, even if that pitcher dropped dead the inning before.
    Roche knows how to do interviews.

    I couldn't find a thread on Steve Buckley exclusively, so I'll post this here (mods feel free to move it if I'm just an idiot), but I am very disappointed with this article from Steve today.

    http://www.bostonherald.com/sports/...rice_is_the_wrong_person_to_teach_jd_martinez

    I am aware of the story from last year with Price and Buckley, but this is the type of negative article that makes the Boston media look terrible. It was just last week that Price stood up in front of reporters and finally took some responsibility for his actions. Rather than giving him a chance to let his actions live up to his words, or even maybe, I don't know, writing an article about JD Martinez, we get this drivel about Price and his problems here.

    We couldn't even go 48 hours after the Martinez deal without getting a negatively slanted article about the Red Sox. This time after signing a big ticket Free Agent to a reasonable deal, that should improve the team.

    I'm not usually one for coddling highly paid grown men, but stuff like this really makes me see their side clearer.
