@joemammy23 This is a business. Teams in London and Toronto would generate much bigger profits than a team in Alaska. Why would they do that? And why should it be a requirement? Have the Blue Jays or Raptors hurt baseball or basketball?

@morganwick In most if not all cases, CBS/Fox have multiple games in their slot. All count. Apples and oranges, especially considering it's prime time vs. Sunday afternoon.

@morganwick The numbers favor Sunday Night Football.
@morganwick I don't care what, like, six commenters told me. That would be pretty weak if I reversed course on something based on comment sections.

@smaclemons @FrankPhillips Thanks Shane.
Yeah, Frank. That's the thing. I'm a very good writer. Do you know how few of us make careers out of this? You think it's a coincidence that I have? Think I've just gotten lucky for the last seven years? And I suppose I'm lucky in all walks of life, because no idea how I got my girlfriend with this mug... And why did I host two live sports shows last year under those circumstances? Man, pure luck. Or maybe you're concluding that I'm a bad writer based on one piece (of the 4,500 pieces I've written) which rubbed you the wrong way, and that I'm an ugly mofo based on a grainy thumbnail. Look at all those pixels in my teeth!
@FrankPhillips That's your goal. You truly want to make someone else's day worse. This is what makes you a troll. I couldn't care less, dude. Truly. Love my job. Starting to think I might have a crush on you, too.
@FrankPhillips Actually, if you're not getting negative comments, you're doing something wrong. I don't know a good blogger who doesn't get ripped apart for factors that have nothing to do with his or her article (as was the case here, since I never actually received a concrete criticism from you on the contents of the actual piece).
When was the last time you wrote a company or left a comment in a comment box at a restaurant to tell them they're doing a great job?
The reality is that the vast majority of feedback is negative. Sad, isn't it? I mean, when you really think about it, my boss assigned me this piece and I wrote it with us both having the intention of giving people a light read to enjoy. Maybe something to relate to, or maybe something to draw comparisons to their lives and friends. Yet instead of reading and moving on, you felt the need to publicly bash our efforts, completely failing to pick up on the tongue-and-cheek vibe.
That's spreading hate for little to no reason. The majority of writers have been trained to ignore twerps like you, but I was in the mood to call you out and have some fun with it.
So again, thanks for the entertainment. And thanks for the extra 10-15 hits. Off to the dentist....
@FrankPhillips I love you, Frank!!! I rarely use exclamation marks in my regular content but this has been too enjoyable. Unknown scrub website, eh? I think you should google me before drawing such conclusions on the websites I work for.
But you're right. This has become tiresome. It was hot while it lasted, but I now need a cigarette. And I don't even smoke. You were a worthy troll adversary, Frank. Keep spreading the hate. The world needs it.
