    Deadspin is Burning

    Who knows if that's going to be their policy going forward, but it looks like they're using the "Deadspin" byline to try and hide the fact that Paul Maidment is having to write these blogs himself View: https://twitter.com/kevinmdraper/status/1190713088145842177

    Deadspin is Burning

    That guy had no idea what he was walking in to. I actually feel a bit for him, as that tweet got ratio'd to hell and he got a load of scab comments thrown at him. This is his subsequent tweet thread saying he's out etc View: https://twitter.com/AlanGoldsher/status/1190341197023322113?s=19 I...

    Yes, he took over as editor after Leitch, but he'd moved over to Gawker by the time of Hogan video.

    Deadspin is Burning

    I think you're being overly harsh on Deadspin, as you're conflating Deadspin with Gawker. Daulerio was editor of Gawker when he posted the Hogan video and that's where he posted it. Deadspin (along with Gizmodo, Kotaku etc), where caught up in that lawsuit by virtue of the ownership structure...

    Rugby World Cup 2019

    Thanks for starting this thread and for the great OP. The Rob Howley betting scandal is the big story dominating here in Wales at the moment.

    RedSox and Yankees will be in London next year on June 29-30.

    If it ends up anything like the NFL games here, there'll be little to no rivalry between fans. The atmosphere is likely to be more neutral with fans of all 30 MLB teams in attendance. They'll be going for the experience of watching a live baseball game more than anything.

    2018 NFL Game Thread - Week 14

    Once Henry gets going, he's incredibly fast @AdamSchefter When Titans’ RB Derrick Henry scored on his 54 yard touchdown run last night - after his record-setting 99-yard TD run - he reached 21.74 mph, the fastest speed by a ball-carrier on a TD run this season, per Next Gen Stats. So why is...
