How Many Katrina Retrospectives Are Too Many?

It’s been 10 years since Hurricane Katrina, and you probably already know this is because seven million writers all descended upon the town this summer to craft their own meditations on what it all MEANS.

Geno Smith Got His Face Caved In Because He’s A Poor Leader

Tom Brady Lied And Killed Babies With His Lies

Chris Broussard Is ESPN’s Favorite Kind Of Shitty

Between fucking up his report on the DeAndre Jordan saga and beefing with co-workers about the chastity of Russell Wilson, last week was quite a week for ESPN reporter and self-proclaimed “thought leader” Chris Broussard. With ESPN tightening its belt and sending away expensive, outspoken talent like Keith Olbermann… » 7/13/15 2:35pm 7/13/15 2:35pm

It’s summer again, which means it’s time for a whole new round of dirty hippie assholes smarming up the Internet with their anti-air conditioning takes. Even the Pope got in on it.

Deadcast: Did La’el Collins Stiff A Hooker Who Ate His Ass Out?

It’s the question of our time, really: Did Dallas Cowboys rookie free agent lineman La’el Collins help himself to a free tossed salad? A self-proclaimed “orally gifted” escort who goes by the handle of THROATZILLA certainly thinks so, and she publicly unloaded both barrels on Collins earlier this month by making her… » 6/16/15 6:01pm 6/16/15 6:01pm

Deadcast: Are The FIFA Arrests Bullshit?

As you know by now, American officials conducted a huge sting operation two nights ago that culminated in the arrest of a shitload of FIFA officials, all of whom were tied to numerous instances of bribery and outright corruption.

Deadcast: Is Colin Cowherd Leaving ESPN To Do Political Talk Radio?

Bill Simmons was fired by ESPN on Friday, and Jason McIntyre over at The Big Lead has speculated that Simmons was fired partly because ESPN didn’t want to set a salary precedent with him when they’ve got contracts for other on-air talent coming up later in the year, most notably Skippy Bayless and braying donkey Colin… » 5/11/15 10:31am 5/11/15 10:31am

Deadcast: Could This Dumb Twitter Parody Actually Be Jason Whitlock?  

Earlier this week, our own Greg Howard posted a lengthy exposé on noted couch tormentor Jason Whitlock and his ESPN-backed vertical, The Undefeated.

Deadcast: Let Me Explain That Stupid Chopped Shirt

Last week I went on Chopped and won and everyone made fun of my shirt, because you people are SOULLESS JACKALS. Anyway, bossman Tim Marchman had a few questions for me about this shirt, mostly so that he could discover new avenues for mocking it.

Deadcast: Is Coach K The Most Hateable CBB Coach Ever? (Yes.)

Deadcast: Peter King Talks To Roger Goodell, Accomplishes Nothing

So Peter King landed an interview with Roger Goodell (I know… I'm as shocked by his journalistic coup as you are) and the commissioner took the opportunity to spew out a bunch of boilerplate Roger Goodell nonsense: blanket declarations of self-assurance, private police forces, bullshit concussion stats, and obscene… » 3/24/15 10:00am 3/24/15 10:00am
