He should probably avoid situations like that but he needs to keep his Trumpian/Kardashian gameplan going. The minute he starts acting normal, no one will care about him.

I think he's great. He certainly has taken the attention off of his son. If he was a coach everybody would be applauding him.

For everyone ripping on the Ringer (and I get it) where do you go these days to read sports and pop culture related articles?

Good question.

Isn't really another site that combines them all like Grantland did.

Was searching for JJ Watt's box jump from a few years back to compare it to someone else's and stumbled across this article. Very old but one of the dumbest things I've ever read.

Hard to believe that PFTCommenter went from being a guy cracking jokes on Twitter to traveling around the country interviewing big time coaches for Grit Week. I also enjoyed their trailer

Re: Sports Media Discussion (RIP ESPN)

I found him pretty funny at first on twitter but I find him somewhat annoying now and fairly sick in general. It's a funny shtick but has gotten old. Making the same grit joke for 2-3 years or whatever loses its luster after a while

Used to enjoy Cowherd on ESPN but listening to some of his recent podcasts at FS1 and all he talks about is Lebron

Sports Media Discussion (RIP ESPN)

Do you guys think a show like SportsCenter, but told with the narrative of the spread would work? So instead of showing the highlights of who won, the drama would be in that last second meaningless three that covered.

He'll do like 5 games or so across various sports on all sorts of lines (not just final score). Usually does it with one of his producers Steve. Pretty funny and enjoyable.

Re: Sports Media Discussion (RIP ESPN)

latest simba/closterman podcast is just embarassing for bill.

"Singles was the first movie that had a soundtrack that was like a big thing"

"it's easier to come back nowadays because you can make threes. But it's also easier to keep a lead because that team can make threes too"

Re: Sports Media Discussion (RIP ESPN)

Jesus christ bill do you even The Big Chill?

That's probably not even the first movie that fits that criteria but its obvious enough that it's just a scorching hot take.

edit: jesus it's worse than I thought. Thinking/googling for a couple of minutes yields

Purple Rain
Saturday Night Fever
American Graffiti
The Graduate
Easy Rider
Breakfast Club
Goodfellas

and I'm sure many many many more

I mean ffs Purple Rain sold like 2 million copies in a week and is one of the greatest albums in history.

Re: Sports Media Discussion (RIP ESPN)

Simba/Klosterman pods are always an embarrassment because Klosterman is a worthless pseudo intellectual hack with the world's most annoying voice.

That's really funny. I guess it encapsulates the idea that 3s have increased the variance.

Yes, except increased variance only hurts the team ahead, so the second sentence is nonsense

Saturday Night Fever was the most obvious one of those, like everyone in the late 70s had that thing in their collection.
