Bill Walton is the future of sports media

You clicked on this thinking, “WTF?!?!?” I’m serious, though. This isn’t clickbait.  Let’s start with this: There are really three ways we watch sports today. 1. We watch games intensely for teams we root for. For NBA, NHL, and MLB, this means watching on local channels with local announcers most of the time. 2. During […]

With egg on face, Colin Cowherd explains commentators need to be interesting but not correct

Colin Cowherd called Clemson a fraud. Dabo Swinney obviously didn’t take too kindly to that and addressed the slight in his post game conference. He went as far to call Cowherd a fraud 🔥🔥🔥 ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4W0bGbl3YY&feature=youtu.be&t=13s Swinney calling out Cowherd wasn’t something that could be ignored and hence, Cowherd addressed it on his show. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z61DY-qythY&feature=youtu.be&t=24s Here […]

FS1 did some bullshit damage control on that Skip Bayless Facebook comment

On Monday, we wrote about this oddity, which was posted the first time Skip Bayless did a Facebook Live video. While the internet got off and running with the assumption that Bayless was just patting himself on the back, we actually verified the screenshot was indeed authentic and threw out some theories on what really […]

Marv Albert thinks Scottie Pippen is talking to Mark Zuckerberg

Scottie Pippen was court side for last night’s Bulls game. He inexplicably is brother in arms with Jason Whitlock on the fashion front. Obviously Pippen being in attendance is something a broadcast is going to acknowledge. Shit, anyone on some of those 90’s Bulls teams is probably worth a mention, even Jud Buechler. But when Albert did […]

Conference championship games suck and should be replaced by an 8-team playoff

Theoretically, conference championship games should be awesome. In a 27-hour period, you’re essentially assured four top 25 games that have major College Football Playoff implications. Should be fun, right? Except it’s definitely not and historically, that’s always been the case. We’ll get into that in just a minute, but I’m guessing many of you awesome […]

Joe Buck World Series

Is Joe Buck bad? Or is he actually good?

The Cubs’ postseason run was a ratings bonanza for Fox. And while the World Series delivered some memorable games and moments, not everyone was happy with Fox’s broadcasts as we once again found our Twitter account absolutely peppered with people complaining about Joe Buck. With that in mind we gathered the staff to take a […]

Bill Simmons blasted the San Diego Chargers stadium ballot measure

In the first trailer for Any Given Wednesday, Bill Simmons trotted out his new ability to swear on HBO by proclaiming “I believe that Billionaires should pay for their own fucking football stadiums.” On last night’s episode, Simmons drilled down on that subject further as he strongly made the case why the upcoming ballot measure for a […]
