Taking the damn day off!!!!!
|10 hours 27 min ago||Unimpressed.||
|11 hours 34 min ago||No, please don't say that||
No, please don't say that ...tell us more about your browns tailgating. Because everyone really gives a fuck
Jeremiah Castille says what's up, btw
|11 hours 49 min ago||And now, we do the Dance of||
And now, we do the Dance of Joy!
|11 hours 51 min ago||Right, because the Browns are||
Right, because the Browns are a perennial suckhole of losing for about 30yrs now (fleeing Ohio, notwithstanding) and Braylon became infected with he disease.
|13 hours 8 min ago||Woodson to the loser Raiders||
Woodson to the loser Raiders ...twice. He could've come to Denver late and won another SB w/the Broncos
C McCaffrey to CAR yesterday.
|13 hours 23 min ago||Not true. Plenty of loser||
Plenty of loser browns fans bitched right away just like the Bunghole fans bitched about drafting Chris Perry.
I'm so sad for Peppers - it's like a death sentence.
|13 hours 25 min ago||Unemployed Danny can sit and||
Unemployed Danny can sit and watch that video all day, every day, and tell the other guys at Starbucks working their resumes and looking for jobs how he really faked it.
|1 day 19 hours ago||"Sports writers" ...? Are||
"Sports writers" ...? Are you really a hamburger or just stupid?
Journalism in all mediums has been changing at warp speed for years now. SI is a pamphlet compared to what it once was and nobody needs to watch snarky cable TV content just to get the scores and breakdown of a game. ESPN has been sinking for years with overpaid rats jumping ship the whole time.
So Disney won't pay you to cover the NFL draft anymore...? Tough. Find something useful to do ...in this booming economy of everywhere except at espn
|1 day 19 hours ago||That's my point, dickwad||
That's my point, dickwad
|1 day 19 hours ago||Long fucking post but||
Long fucking post but absolutely spot on!
|2 days 2 hours ago||I was laid off in 2005||
I was laid off in 2005 ....took all of my inner strength to feign disappointment and shock.
Best thing that ever happened to me and lead to my current job/role where I couldn't be happier.
|2 days 2 hours ago||Exactly. Sports is a||
Sports is a departure ...entertainment and exercise. I LOVE M sports and sports in general but espn took the notion of covering sports and tried to turn it into something that really matters, when it doesn't.
What ..does matter - the games and performances and outcomes.
What doesn't matter ...95% of what espn tried cramming down our throats.
|2 days 3 hours ago||Oh, come on. People lose||
Oh, come on.
People lose their jobs every day. This isn't like the town manufacturing plant closing down. It's a very poorly managed business doing business.
|2 days 3 hours ago||I worked at the Daily --||
I worked at the Daily my Soph year -- covered ladies golf, skiing and did some random one-offs. Only 'famous' person from my era wrote a book on the XFL - Brett Forrest. I think his dad did Bruins radio play by play in the 80s
|2 days 4 hours ago||Has anyone heard anything||
Has anyone heard anything about severance packages? All this concern for the layoffs but there'd have to be something, right?
|2 days 4 hours ago||Better to lose your job now,||
Better to lose your job now, in a booming economy and expanding technology than the millions of 'regular people' who lost their jobs in 08-09.
Bad business decisions in the past and apparently some bad decisions now in handling he mess they created for themselves.
Don't like espn and don't watch it - hopefully some of the talent lands elsewhere
|2 days 9 hours ago||OTL and some of the 30/30s||
OTL and some of the 30/30s are all that I have watched aside from games ..GameDay on Saturday mornings, but that too has declined in the past few years and I now watch BTN's show usually.
Pete, Pollack and Herbie all being SEC mouthpieces, mainly
|2 days 9 hours ago||I am on about year 9 now ...I||
I am on about year 9 now ...I used to have it on at my home office during the 08-09 financial crisis because I couldn't handle watching CNBC but found "First Take" (aka, Cold Pizza) unbearable and the fact that 3-4 topics would be bludgeoned to death all day long, on every show.
|2 days 9 hours ago||Bloated payroll, bad content,||
Bloated payroll, bad content, hubris and greed .... couldn't care less because people are 'victims' of business decisions every day. Just because Ed Werder has been on TV for years doesn't mean anything more to me than some staff accountant let go for the same reasons espn is doing this purge.
|3 days 5 hours ago||Yep, in May||
Yep, in May
|3 days 8 hours ago||How is Schefter's alma mater||
How is Schefter's alma mater relevant? He's the official spokesperson for the NFL
|3 days 8 hours ago||Still no Pete||
Still no Pete ....Finebaum..?!
Still no Drew ......Sharp??? Probably won't hear from him
|3 days 9 hours ago||I didn't know he did anything||
I didn't know he did anything outside CFB studio work for espn and avoid espn programming both on radio and tv, but this bullshit is being picked up by Dan Patrick, Colin Cowherd & non-M fans on Twitter. Ranges from chugging water to gain weight to hydration to insinuation of steroids and/or illegal drugs.
Utter bullshit that an echo chamber of ignorance is defaming Peppers while Kanell gets undue pub.
|3 days 10 hours ago||I had dinner with an agent||
I had dinner with an agent from the Agency now repping Peppers (among other now former M players) back in February, who is also best friends with Chris Partridge (from playing at Lafayette). I suggested the 'fake injury' theory -- aka, pulling a McCaffrey -- and was told Peppers was in tears in the tunnel, pregame because he was so upset he couldn't play. For Kannell to ASSERT otherwise is ignorant -- he has NO IDEA.
ps - intentionally misspelling Danny's name just like he did JABRILL's!
|4 days 7 hours ago||Yes, I was there in 1994 when||
Yes, I was there in 1994 when the World Cup was in the USA.. I liked Verona and Firenze a lot more than Rome. Still, a lot of history there.
|5 days 12 hours ago||Definitely some sort of||
Definitely some sort of 'crush' every tuesday for me as a young kid and now all these years later, sad to hear about her battles while seeing what a loser Scott Baio turned out to be 'in real life'
Joanie .....Mallory ...Facts of Life girls ......
Freaky how quickly life flies by
|1 week 7 hours ago||I make more than the SID||
I make more than the SID ...quite a bit more. I would venture to guess that many other posters do as well.
|1 week 10 hours ago||I just laughed out loud at my||
I just laughed out loud at my desk ...thanks!
Reminds me of this woman I worked with from Regina, Canada. She spoke with a british accent that came and went like Kevin Costner's in Robin Hood. Most commonly, she spoke with a very british accent during meetings but in different circumstances she sounded like a plain canuck.
One time at a work happy hour a guy from our team said to Karen, "you know, we all know you're not British"
She got up and walked off in a huff and generally avoided him and our team after that
|1 week 12 hours ago||Interesting. My wife is a||
My wife is a para and we had a similar situation at my sons Elem. too long a story to recap here but a male teacher who took leave after his son died of SIDS was being forced back into working by the District or he'd forego benefits (something like that). The woman who took his class - great teacher and friends with my wife still - knew the situation and knew he might, at some point come back.
Well ..the parents would have none of it and thank God half the class' parents were attorneys because lawyers can resolve every problem with a lawsuit!!!
A Conf Call arranged by a litigator (M Law degree, no less) had parents dial in to plan suing the principal, school district and anyone else. A few parents of girls were mortified at the notion of a MALE TEACHER!!! and would not stand for it.
Forget that my son, among other boys, were dying to have Mr D before his sabbatical. Forget that Mr D and his wife just lost their baby and we're grieving ...it's all about MY CHILD!!!
The principal resolved things and the woman stayed in class to finish the year and a few weeks later I sent a thoughtful email to Mr Litigator -- completely ignorant of the bigger picture -- and made him feel like the piece of shit he is about Mr D's son dying.
Still to this day, almost 4yrs later, Mr Litigator won't make eye contact with me at school events
Fucking douche bag
and fwiw, we did have a male child molestor at preschool. A private school, he was allowed to continue working there for 10yrs after first accusations. I had to speak with ICE and the FBI about it after he was busted during a child porn sting. In this case it was the arrogance and hubris of the wealthy families at the school who lived by the notion, "No way ...not here, not in OUR SCHOOL!!!"
