The first tweet's not really that obvious. The twitterverse seems to have a reading comprehension problem.
He says: "The only way San Antonio or Miami don't win the championship is if neither team makes the finals."
In other words: if either team makes the finals, they will win, regardless of whom the other team in the finals is. Is that really so obvious? There are certainly a lot of people who think OKC could beat Miami, and people who think Indiana could beat San Antonio.
The only thing obvious here is that this is what Johnson was saying. Yet, for some reason, people have chosen to read his tweet to say: "If both Miami and San Antonio make the finals, one of them will surely win."

@justme21 -- except that we already knew that. Escobar was never really in contention for the rotation to start the season (which is pretty apparent since they announced this before playing any spring games). It was clear they re-signed Voegy to be in the rotation. Petit, another righty, is likely next in line. Or maybe Loe, also a righty.

Seems more interesting that Huddy is in front of Lincecum.

Doesn't this approach assume a wide gap between the players? Let's say Scutaro, Posey, Sandoval and Belt are all identical players. Isn't it a mistake to give up a lot of ABs for Belt to gain a few ABs for the other three? In that case, don't you put Belt in the top 4, move Pence and Morse down 1 and drop Crawford to 8th?

Obvious response: since the use of the word "Redskins" is mandatory, it must be completely mandatory. Next issue of the paper should just be the word Redskins printed over and over and over.

@Tony Clifton I didn't realize I was limited to answering the specific question posed in these comments. I'm so sorry to have disappointed you.

I reject Leitch's fundamental premise. Jerks and bigots will be jerks and bigots whether we talk about it or not. Good people rightly feel obligated to speak out against them.
I didn't hear him, so maybe it's different on the air, but I see no contrition here. It's a "I'm sorry you were offended by what I said" apology, not an "I'm sorry for what I said." Nowhere near good enough. The Tweets are even worse. He's very careful to use the passive voice -- "lessons were learned" -- but in case you're confused, they weren't learned by Damon Bruce.

Does anybody decide what sports to watch based on what channel it's on? I mean, doesn't this reflect (at least as to game ratings) that FS1 simply doesn't have the games people most want to see?

@sir boxington You don't seem to understand the sentence you quote. It is very much possible (and in fact, reality) that Twitter is a small percentage of fans, but that there is still useful information that can come out on Twitter, especially from athletes, coaches, etc. Those two points have nothing to do with one another.
