We get a massive amount of tips in our inbox each week. Some are pretty interesting, but don't get published for one reason or another.
It's usually because they're just so absurd or really lack even the most tenuous of news angles to give them the go-ahead. Other times it's because they're just absolute horseshit. But every Friday until we get sick of running them, we'll present to you some of these not-so-shiny gems. All items should be treated as [Sic'd]. Enjoy...
I usually find Deadpsin extrememely entertaining, but this email exchange with Sean Salibusry is just sad. I'm not trying to be unny here, there is something gong on in this man's life... maybe alcohol, addiction? To watch (or rather read) someone self destruct is disturbing. Let him have his say in private. He needs help, not a snarky audience taking shots at him.
On today's sportscenter, they had Sean Salisbury comments on the internet, and when they had to give some background, they just said "we won't elaborate on that," and promptly moved on to whatever topic they had next.
Be careful man. I once had a roommate where something triggered and he kind of just lost his mind and went crazy. He would talk and write emails that basically looked exactly what Salisbury is saying to you. I'm just saying watch out, this dude is obviously out there, and whether its true or not feels that he and his family are threatened. I love the site, keep up the good work.
Salisbury sounds depressed, delusional and possibly suicidal.
Ease up on him, man. If he jumps off a building, you don't want any responsibility for that.
Seriously. This is not angry criticism. It's a request for sympathy.
Your stupid little article about Jay Feely was well.... stupid. Before making stupid comments about someones political beliefs, maybe you should try educating yourself first, if thats at all possible. Take your little blogs and your stupid little website and shove it up your ass.
The Yalie Is Aggrieved
To whom it may concern,
There is a picture on the front page of deadspin.com that needs to be removed immediately. This is the only contact information I could find on the site, can you please point me in the right direction to have these pictures taken down. It has the subject regarding the Yale/Harvard game.
If this is not done immediately, we will have to take legal action.
I am writing to you about the story on the front page of Deadspin.com about the college football season.
The story about the Yale/Harvard game with pictures of a man passing out happens to be about friends of mine.
I really need to know who I can email to have those pictures taken down as they are quite embarrassing for my friend.
Please let me know what I need to do to get this taken care of. Thanks
The Truth Is, You're A Moron
I read on the Onion.com yesterday that Dallas released Jerry Jones, but I can't find anybody else reporting it. Is there any truth to this?
This Is How You Audition For The Comments Section
"I check out your site everyday, along with other sports blogs. Caught a guy a went to school with posing behind LT today. Wanted to get set up to comment, thinking I could come up with something funny since he sleep walked and pissed on my door."
Just Type "FUCK.AND. NO" On Your Keyboard
Is there anyway to fix my RSS to eliminate all feeds from Drew?
Thank You For Reminding Me
I thought you might be unsure, so I just wanted to let you know you're still a douche who leaves the world just a little more shit filled with each day you spend you time on the interwebz. Congratulations on ascending to near the top of the noble world of paparazzi.
