    SportsCenter & OTL Bringing Back Spygate (live, 9AM)

    Perhaps the most embarrassing part of an article full of it is the implication that because Specter opened the investigation in late 2008, and Donald Trump stopped contributing to him after 2008, that this was the reason. There's no mention of any other reason why Trump may have stopped his...

    Grade the Pats Draft: How Did BB/Nike Do?

    This is where I'm at, actually. If he's a guy who can put out numbers close to Jimmy G numbers, this is a massive 5 year game changer. I think a lot of people got used to a lot of things in the Brady era, but one of the things that was understated was not having a cap killer in the QB slot. A...

    Super Bowl LV: What is Your Current Rooting Interest?

    This is where I was. I think it would have been a great story for the Bills to breathe a sigh of relief that Brady was finally gone, take advantage and win the division, then make the Super Bowl and he's there, looming, as the end boss. No matter which way it ends up (Tom coming back to make...

    Justin Turner and COVID

    How many day to day employees of MLB and staff are on that field without any knowledge of Turner's positive test? What about the Rays organization? The umpires? There shouldn't be a union present last night that lets MLB get past this without massive penalties for the Dodgers, and MLB should eat...

    Gone Brady Gone

    Some of these takes are fucking baffling to me. If there is one person to be mad at, it's Father Time. Beyond that, forget it. We finally hit the breakpoint where the priorities of the team and the player diverged enough to cause a split. It's nobody's fault. Why is it Brady's obligation to take...

    Felger and Mazz - Creating False Naratives one day at a time

    Actually, yes these days. I haven't touched WEEI and Sports Hub for anything other than game broadcasts in 2 years, and it's been the happiest sports period (non championship edition) of my life. Podcasts and streaming radio is a hell of an innovation, and you can curate your experience however...

    Kirk and Callahan: Done

    Hey, don't sell them short. They're just as good at being sexist, homophobic, and islamophobic.

    ESPN Is Pathetic

    Thank god for this, otherwise how would I have known g0dpenis's reaction to this national tragedy?

    The Nation's Tears: Volume II

    As much as I love the sentiment, I can't help but laugh at the first "Remember when you blew that lead" being posted by someone with a Golden State Warriors avatar.

    Kirk and Callahan: Done

    I don't like Jemele Hill professionally, but I can't stand Minihane, both personally and professionally. It feels weird to pull for Hill.

    Bob Hohler runs ad on Brady's charity endeavors

    The problem is that this "story" is all in the presentation, and this piece is clearly designed to drag Brady through the mud. If this was presented as (not that this would ever be a story that would make it to print) the following, people would have no problem with it: "Best Buddies came to...

    Pearl Jammin' with Grandpa, the Bill Simmons Thread

    I think the most Simmons way to go about it would be to wait for the ASB, write a retro-preview for the American League where he takes a particularly noticeable shot at Team X for signing "Injury Prone" Player 1 (1 DL stint for a pulled hammy in the last 3 years) who now needs Tommy John, then...

    Penn State AD and Sandusky Charged

    Depressing. Probably another case of the abused becoming the abuser. I hope help can be provided for the child for both his own sake and so the cycle doesn't repeat.
