Re: John Clayton out at ESPN

You know, I find it absolutely PERFECT timing that the most popular player in the NBA has offensive graffiti sprayed on his home and it just so happens to be on the most dead news day, the day before the Finals start. So now we get to hear LeBron's racial manifesto and everyone's hot take and voila bing bang boom ala peanut butter sandwiches buckle up buckaroo because we got our big ol' headline of the day!!!

Meanwhile, they haven't found the perpetrator and police are still investigating the incident. Well golly jeepers what a shocker that is!

Today's fake news, setup and staged to promote the narrative and strike up the conversation. And I'm not usually the conspiracy type.

Care to share some details, friend?

Re: John Clayton out at ESPN

This discussion reminds me of a quote in an essay I wrote years ago...


I always turn to the sports pages first, which records people's accomplishments. The front page has nothing but man's failures.

- Earl Warren, Chief Justice, U.S. Supreme Court



Quote is nearly rendered useless with #fakenews #polarizednews today...

Yeah, and it got progressively worse after they implemented that. I agree with you.

Where's the accountability for thinking sports is rocket science and making these gaffes?!?

Ironic, we've got this spirited discussion all over John Clayton, Saints Hater...

This commercial was one of their better ones though...

Re: John Clayton out at ESPN

ESPN wants to get douchier, cooler, and younger as evidenced by bringing back Max Kellerman.
