@Gossamer Yeah. Ok. Sure. But it's pretty sexist to include in their critique of a woman covering a sports game the words "gutless bitch" or to say "social media is the reason she has a big house," as if she wasn't talented in her own right to earn what she has (because lol women am I right???). If you can't intelligently critique a woman's job performance without using that kind of language, you don't deserve a microphone in front of you.

@mwg You're really that fucking dumb? "The team's early uniforms consisted of a black jersey with a silver fern and white knickerbockers. By the 1905 tour New Zealand were wearing all black, except for the silver fern, and their name All Blacks dates from this time."

Realllly good breakdown of the new additions. Bill's podcast with Jalen from this week made me feel a little better about (I'm a Simmons fan but questioned this addition specifically for the reasons above). But an interesting comment that they both made was that the TNT program was far and away the better choice between the two, because of its style, analysts, etc., and that they didn't think ESPN's program was ready to jump over it; really, they only wanted to give people a stronger second option. I thought it was a pretty honest take from the two.

It's a simple business model for ESPN. They constantly get beat by journalists at CBS and Yahoo! on the real breaking news, so instead of pouring resources in to that, they create their own news (the fictional QB controversy with NYJ) and report on it, and since they're the self-proclaimed "Worldwide Leader in Sports," it gets eaten up.

John, first time visitor but I like what I see. FYI, however, it's Indiana University, not University of Indiana.
