I know the dead wolverine link has been posted multiple times, but Deadspin, of course, has jumped on the bandwagon.
Man, that deadspin - always topical and yet still unique.
I liked the site a couple of years ago, but recently it has become one of the places on the Internet I just don't like to visit. I'm sure they could care less, but the comment sections are so "insider-y" and yet still disturbing that it doesn't seem worth wadding through it for some of the top-notch stuff they still put out.
I tend to agree with you. I've been checking it the last couple weeks to keep up on the ridiculous position Bill Simmons took comparing Tiger Woods comeback to Ali's in the 1960's and caught the Michigan link. I don't read the comments anymore. Gives me an ice cream headache.
Yeah, yeah, yeah...pile on now, jackasses. I'm going to enjoy the Michigan resurgence more because of donkeys like these. Then again, I shouldn't take anything put together by the Mensa Candidates at Deadspin too too seriously.
Daulerio killed it
I mean, this place is pretty insider-y. But Deadspin has become so full of lemmings, that you can almost literally predict the sequence of one or two moderately humorous comments descending into continuous dick jokes devoid of any originality that give "beating a dead horse" new meaning each time they're recycled.
That ignores the latest-fabricated-controversy posts which pander to the lowest common denominator in "sports" gossip (the Jambaroo being a hilarious exception). And what's incredible is as bad as Deadspin has become, its writers still have 100 times more sports awareness and aptitude for writing than The Big Lead.
"Yeah, I pretty much knew that was coming. As evidenced in the past few days, "outing" yourself as a Michigan fan on DS is more or less like walking naked into Jeffrey Dahmer's apartment slathered in KC Masterpiece. But true fans wear their misery with a twisted pride..."
