What a jealous sissy. You have a punk job. Most of us watch the game, but you do a girl’s job, without any man input. Go sit at your typewriter Ms. Chumpson

Subject: Trump and flag humping

From: Larry Subramanian
To: Lauren Theisen

A lot of people “hump” the flag, proven by the drop in NFL ratings and the owners’ decision to make their players stand. Sorry your anti American loonies aren’t invited to the White House. Maybe you can host an Obama humping or liberal humping or unpatriotic humping party for them.

Subject: Haha how about Ginsberg making a million because of her confirmation to the bench

From: Franklin Strum
To: Chris Thompson

Really? You Demoscums are so desperate to stop a Republican Judicial Nominee confirmed, you bring up bullshit like this.

At another time your favorite Justice Ginsberg made a million off a book deal when she was confirmed.

That outweighs spending money on baseball tickets and it being paid off.

Don’t play with us Conservatives.... we will push Kavanaugh to them finish line.

Thanks,

Franklin Strum

Subject: (YOUR BLOG’S SUCK)

From: Hicks
To: Chris Thompson

Your blogs really irritate the hell out of me and I sure a lot of other people as well, every blog you write about the Sacramento Kings is negative ass hell, you sound like a negative ass prick learn how to write something positive for once instead of just writing about every negative thing you can find to write about, if the Sacramento Kings won 50 games next season you’d probably still find some negative bullshit to write your writing sucks dude you should just quit nobody wants to read your overly critical anti Kings blogs, I never read one blog that you put out and had the thought that’s a good piece it’s always the opposite in fact it’s just bad writing, if this is all that Deadspin has to offer then you guys should just hang it up and call it quits cause frankly your writting Sucks!

Subject: Regarding your father

From: yannredon
To: Lauren Theisen

I didn’t know how to reach you for so long, but theres something important you must know about your father.

Take your clickbait shit articles and go back to buzzfeed. I’m happy you waisted countless time training in journalism just to end up where you are. A clickbaiting, misinforming nobody. Don’t waste peoples time with that shit. Your dad’s great, your articles, however, are beyond the opposite.

Cheers,

You ever hear the term “playing hardball”?

Your article underscores why many of us don’t want women in combat roles in the military, Lauren.

The pussification of our country continues.

You ARE a girl, ain’t ya?

From: dbuczek
To: Lauren Theisen

You operate behind a pen injecting such disrespectful rhetoric. You blame others because you can’t face your own inadequate moral compass. If you can’t honor the ones who have fallen or fought for your freedoms, tell me where do you derive your honor, integrity, and respect from? This movement or should I say ignorant movement, comes from so called college educated individuals is so profoundly wrong. Protest infront of your city or town officials even your state capitol. Maybe you should try giving some type of service to your country instead of trying to stir the pot.

Subject: Summer league article

From: Richard W
To: Lauren Theisen

Im writing this e-mail in response to your article about jaren jackson and trae young. Your assumptions are based on one freakin summer league game. We don’t know how good these players will be until they actually play several seasons. Also, your statement about jackson shooting a 61 percent career 3 lacks reason. Again you’re basing that on one summer league game, and the best 3 point career shooters are in the mid to low 40s. The only way he could actually shoot that percentage is if the opposing stops defending him. Even then, he may not crack 61. So before you start writing articles about players being bums, know what you’re talking about first.

Subject: Not a sportsman’s !!!! .

From: Jim
To: Albert Burneko

Now that Labron James got his ass beat and handed to him by the Celtics, he is saying he played with a hurt hand. Always an excuse from him!!!!! He thinks he is the best player, but he is not. Kevin Durant gave him a basketball clinic in final game

James is always using excuses, complains about everything that does not go his way. I sure hope he reads this. Jim
