Got my stuff to listen to in the morning at work
Unless you look at it as Kirk is a huge racist(he is) and therefore Gruden “speaking out” is him saying things Kirk fully agrees with but won’t say himself
Bomani always has good takes it’s honestly impressive how high his batting average is.
The man doesn’t miss
Really wish he made the move to Meadowlark. He would be perfect for the brain trust pods.
This has been a fairly tough story to follow as every network (in my limited straw sample) seeming doesn't quote what was actually said.
I've watched an unacceptable amount of ESPN this weekend and aside from the tire/lip comment I know nothing.
I'm fully aware he said a lot of other racist things - the coverage has just been odd.
Bruce Buccaneer is crying. So sad. The prestigious Buc ring of honor. I mean they just don’t hand that out.
I think that’s poor emoji use maybe? (Not saying Doug doesn’t suck)
edit: quoted the wrong post
he’s so good and so smart
I love that ESPN basically never mentions that Gruden was working for them when he did this shit
ESPN let Bomani on the pirate ship?
Yeah, they had Mina and Tim Kirkjian last week too.
You could take 5 minutes and read The NY Times article.
How long until Desantis fundraises off of this?
Fair critique - just read it.
But I'll double down on ESPN's coverage being trash.
I know times are different post #MeToo but I cannot imagine the scene where they are forcing a topless photo shoot
It's hilarious reading Twitter comments from people who very obviously say similar shit and genuinely can't fathom that other people don't, so they project it on to everyone.
"You could do the same thing to 90% of people and they'd have this kind of stuff and get fired"
Uhhh, no? Speak for yourself
Man just got a show on HBO, doing pretty well for himself
Bomani did? When does that start?
Edit nm found this. Definitely a watch for me.
you are correct you win a prize and that prize is knowledge, which is also power gbr
I think bc he’s now got the hbo show he’s not exclusive? I honestly have no idea but it was great hearing him today
I missed the actual Mina appearance. That’s fantastic
This is gonna fuck the nfl up and a number of other people bad.... CANT WAIT
My Pillow will swoop in and sign him up
mods please take my picture down, this is a difficult enough time for me
He's not leaving ESPN. He talked about it on the most recent episode of The Right Time.
Well, I’d like to see the NFL wriggle its way out of THIS jam!
*NFL wriggles its way out of the jam easily*
Ah! Well. Nevertheless,
Can’t let the masses know Gruden worked for them at the time, and likely sent said emails from his ESPN email address.
Also - and the bigger cause here - can’t get people too riled up about all of this and turn them off of the NFL to the point they stop consuming highly lucrative NFL media.
Had to make room for Tom Brady
Oh that's just how he keeps getting the scoop on stuff, asking the source and letting them control the story.
Please let Darren Rovell have something terrible come out of this.
We thinking “Woj” et al don’t do the same thing?
You mean worse than being Darren Rowell?
Good luck with that
They absolutely do, but I don’t think Woj ever wades into non transactional stories all that often. Maybe occasionally, but it’s one thing to be the guy that blows up the NBA draft. It’s a whole different ball game to reach out to a guy who is part of an investigation into a toxic work environment, asking him to proof read your story.
Also, Schefter is co-investing in a gambling app with Robert Kraft. He isn’t exactly setting a high bar for ethics these days.
He’s basically Trent Crimm.
Schefter used to work for the NFL
he was hired by ESPN to continue to do exactly that
Trent Crimm, The Independent
Pretty sure Schefty did this 10 years ago when he was reporting on the lockout.
Trent Crimm, Independent*
would love to see that hack Schefter go down.
Seems like a good time to bring up the fact that shefty wrote about about his wife's husband who died on 9/11
Not creepy at all
It’s adorable that people think the NFL will release any more of that report than they want to
Where Eagles Dare what is your opinion on this apology by gruden?
Eminem has been known to throw out a few homosexual slurs over the years.
Rovell, Shams, and Schefter really exposing themselves these past 24 hours
