It’s been another busy week in sports media. We’re here to recap the biggest news and events that took place and share some of our best work from the week that was. Without further adieu:
Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark took offence to a column from Bleacher Report writer Natalie Weiner from 2015, where she criticized the team for drafting him. Clark deleted the tweet and offered a half-assed apology.
Kevin Harlan is not a fan of in-game interviews, calling them unfair to coaches and that they are “generally useless.” He admitted coaches do not like them, “not one of them.”
There’s been plenty of shuffling in the NFL analyst world, as James Lofton joined CBS as a game analyst this week, while Tony Gonzalez jumped from CBS to Fox. The latter will appear on the NFL Kickoff studio show.
Draymond Green said ESPN omitted the context of the quotes about the Cavaliers and his boredom of the NBA playoffs. Upon further review, their comments seem to be… pretty fair?
ESPN 850 Cleveland’s Sabrina Parr appeared on the Real Big Show on Wednesday and accused Jabrill Peppers of being “on the lean” (a drink mixed containing promethazine with codeine) and “the molly,” (aka MDMA). Parr said she was taken out of context (she wasn’t) and has reportedly been let go by ESPN 850.
