Jay Mariotti Has A Website And A Shitty Radio Show [CORRECTED]

Correction (4:04 p.m.): Turns out there are two Genesis Communications in the radio world. Jay Mariotti actually partnered with the one that owns and operates six stations in central Florida—not the one affiliated with Alex Jones and his ilk. Our bad. Fuck Mariotti anyway. » 8/07/13 12:14pm 8/07/13 12:14pm

The Redskins Were So Excited That Donald Trump Praised RGIII That They …

So, everything about this is just powerfully loathsome: Trump's face, the fact that the Redskins are so historically starved for praise that they consider an endorsement from a vitamin-selling pyramid-schemer an important plug, and, oh, right, "You're hired." I think the Redskins just found the only potential football… » 12/06/12 10:35am 12/06/12 10:35am

Michael Wilbon Is A Gutless, Starfucking Crybaby Troll

For the past three decades, Mike Wilbon has earned a living barely disguising his contempt for you, the filthy peasant sports fan. Whether boasting to the world how unsurprised he was about Sean Taylor being murdered, or chastising you for looking to him for gossip from his White House partygoing, or pissing and… » 10/05/12 10:55am 10/05/12 10:55am

ESPN the Magazine has a fun story out today about Dan Snyder and our old friend Dave McKenna.

Ann Romney's Horse Hangs Out With Assholes

So, part of my job as a Deadspin intern has involved writing some those fun Olympic field guides that you may have seen on the site recently. Today I started writing one about Ann Romney's dressage horse, Rafalca, who will be competing in the London Olympics.

Editor's Note: Suggesting Dan Snyder Is A Bullshitter Is Not As…

The previous post on Deadspin might have given the impression that Redskins owner Dan Snyder is a liar. Snyder takes such accusations very seriously, and so do we, which is why we now endeavor to answer the question: Is it libelous to suggest that Dan Snyder is a lying-ass shitbag vulgarian? » 6/18/12 3:15pm 6/18/12 3:15pm
