    Celtics? Undermanned.

    Red Sox? Unsustainable.

    Bruins? Playoffs start vs the Leafs.

    Wrestlemania? You tell me.

    Kirk and Gerry: unlistenable

    Reimer:
    On “The Herd” this week, Cowherd laid out Belichick’s alleged devious plan. Cowherd introduced his seemingly inane hypothesis by flouting his connections around the league. He claims to be in regular contact with roughly “40 NFL sources” and dined recently with an NFL general manager (wow)! Apparently, breaking bread with a GM is the only thing required to read into Belichick’s mind.
    “Flouting” his connections? Way to English, Cub Reporter.

    Oh boy, Roger does it again.

    “We’ll have sections all over the stadium for all 32 teams, and it’ll be like a competition between all the teams and their fans.”

    Look in a mirror fatso, you are part of the reason “we” got to this point.

    I think, while I’m on my 60-year-old-man riff, what’s up with “uniform launch parties” or “uniform unveilings?” I see the Jaguars are having one April 19, on the heels of the Titans drawing 20,000 for theirs last week. I don’t get the unveiling of uniforms being a news event. How did we get to this point

    One’s a failure and one just won the Masters – lots in common there Peter – oh wait, they are both portly.

    This is going to be the most talked-about draft in history. 

    There were 7 HoF drafted in 1983, and that draft also included non HoF Roger Craig, Henry Ellard, Dave Duerson, Karl Mecklenburg, etc

    Curly Lambeau was born 120 years ago today in Green Bay.

    Curly Lambeau played for Knute Rockne at Notre Dame 100 years ago this year.

    So, Curly Lambeau played college football at age 20? Like, um, every other fucking college football player in history? Fascinating :weei:

    There is no word on what happened yet, but the truck, with a load of Canadian peat, hit the bus and tore it apart.

    I actually was going to ask who cares about the contents, but if there is no word on what happened, why is the rest of the sentence saying what happened?

    The first person to congratulate Reed was Bubba and we know Callahole doesn’t like the good ole boys.

    Guregian:

    At one point early last season, the Hoodie chastised Gronk in front of the players for being a TB12 client, according to a source. So maybe that was Belichick’s not-so-subtle way of trying to keep everyone from jumping ship on the team’s training staff.

    I’m trying to figure where the truth is with the “Trouble in Foxboro” stories. I trust Curran, and so do believe things aren’t all rosy. But it’s a business, so it’s not supposed to be. There’s no way it rises to the level of Wickersham’s wish fulfillment-fueled unbridled speculation. I just want to know if there’s enough there to actually cause distraction. Belichick has overcome worse.

    If Parcells had done that and punctuated it with “I’ve never seen a resistance band catch a ball,” everyone would think it was hilarious and point to this as an example of Parcells knowing which buttons to press to motivate a player.

    Absolutely. Gronk wasn’t just drafted, either. He’s been here and he knows every player gets shit on, no matter how talented. If something like that actually pissed him off, it makes him look mentally fragile and unable to let hard coaching roll off his back.

    It looks like things are going well at Get Up! Below from Barstool. It’s a complete disaster but to their credit, they have more viewers than I personally expected. I couldn’t imagine there would 20,000 people who would decide to watch on purpose so 283k is stunning. So there is  that. Never mind coke, Skipper must have been on meth to think this was a good idea.

    Big Lead – It’s unclear what would have been the benchmark for success for Get Up from a first week ratings perspective, but the first three days of ratings for the new ESPN morning program with Mike Greenberg, Michelle Beadle, and Jalen Rose cannot be construed as anything other than a supreme disappointment.

    The opening day viewership of 283,000 was down 12% versus Monday morning SportsCenter in April last year, according to John Ourand. Tuesday’s 243,000 viewers was down 25% year over year (according to Bob Seidman, last year’s SportsCenter on the same Tuesday in April averaged 323,000 viewers).

    Outkick the CoverageHow many viewers did WokeCenter AM have?

    It had only 283k viewers, which, I believe, makes it the lowest debut for a new ESPN show in the 21st century. …

    I like how the intrepid journos are trying to break Reed’s issues in college like it’s an exclusive investigative piece.  Even Golfwerx isn’t claiming dibs on breaking it.  And I don’t remember any of these assholes caring when he was winning Ryder Cup matches.

    Well said, Chico. He’s the most tone-deaf, inappropriate asshole alive. And for all his posturing, he doesn’t care about anyone or anything  but his fat, talentless self. There’s  nothing good, kind, or selfless about him. Not one thing.

    I never realized how perfect the media is.   According to Cullen CBS should have discussed all of the off course stuff because somehow that matters to fans watching a golf tournament.

    This is written by the same group who would tell you that a media member getting pinched for DWI has nothing to do with how they report, but I’m suppose to look at Reed differently.

    So now before you root for a player or team you need to look if they would pass the media’s morality test.

    Reed DID have his parents and sister removed from the Masters a couple of years ago while he was playing. I can’t imagine how bad the relationship must be in that family to pull that stunt. Though I also have read his wife had a lot to do with that.
