Waiting for Herr Lebron to comment on China and Ty Lawson.
Did you see what Lawson said/did?

Re: Gundy

Yes. No. Supporting the KKK is a 100% nonstarter for me. Even bringing it up is ridiculous. It’s like asking is a “Nazi supporter” anti Semitic? If you support the KKK in any way, shape or form you are a despicable human being. People who attempt to block hospital access to police officers ambushed...

Re: Gundy

Please don’t equate BLM to the KKK. I guess I don’t understand the constant obsession over the “media”. I think there is so much media/info out there people pick and choose what they want to read and therefore approve of or condemn. I’m amazed how many people say they hate “mainstream media” yet th...

Re: 2020-21 College Football Coaching Carousel

Does anyone remember the dustup between Carlton Fisk and Neon Deion? I feel like Methuselah constantly dredging up stuff from so long ago but it is topical and worth revisiting if in fact Deion is to be a coach. If he is, he'll be the ultimate do as I say, not as I do coach. I have loved and respec...

Re: WSCR Dan McNeil Gone...Again!

Still missing a female ESPN sideline reporter not fitting the physical profile. She hasn’t been terminated once she hit 50 and is not as thin as the normal.

It’s rare but an example exists.

Speaking of big and fat, when is the last time you saw an overweight woman as a sideline reporter?
I’ve got one. ESPN employee.
You guys can figure it out as I will be vilified for saying it.
Just answering a question or pointing out a fact is dangerous today.

Re: KC-Houston Ratings Down...

Strangely I haven’t missed professional (or college) sports. I do miss high school sports. Not watching sports on tv has been nice.

I do feel badly for my friends who coach high school sports and the student athletes who missed on participating.

Looks like we'll have to wait another week for Tompa Bay to get their Super Bowl rings for this year. While it won't happen, I would enjoy Tampa going 0-16 with a healthy Brady starting each game.
NFL is playing? Or are these simulated Madden games?
