“It’s because the Lions knew the Bears plays.” – Deadspin, by implication, of Chris Conte quote about the teams being familiar with one another and having former players of each other. Worst Deadspin article ever.
I’m barely an amateur analyst by any metric and haven’t rewatched the game but I can still recall at least 3 separate instances where it was Conte vs Reggie Bush in space and he failed hard.
Havent read the deadspin article but the quote is hilarious either way
Foodspin is starting to piss me off. Albert comes off as a fucking hipster Brookyln I’m better than you foodie snob fuckhead of unwarranted self importance. Today’s article? Don’t do brats for tailgaiting because they are boring? Fuck you, fuckface. Ranking sodas/pop/high fructose corn syrup drinks and Mountain Dew on the bottom? Whatever. Calling me subhuman because I like it? Among all the things I’ve done and I’m no better than a fucking cell of bacteria because I like a drink you hate. Jason Garrett thinks you are full of shit and Jason disrespects the fact that I don’t have the fine elegant exquisite tastes of a fine Pricecton eating hall. Fuck you, Albert and snobs like him – die in a fire of AIDS
Hipster snobbery has its uses. We can use it against PK.
Oh? You drink Starbucks? That’s cool. Some people like the taste of a day-old fire pit with a pint of sugar and fat mixed because they have no sense of taste. It’s okay. Clearly you know what you like judging by that jello mold under your shirt there, buddy. That’s cool too.
A fire of AIDs sounds horrible. Cheers to your hate, packman, I am right there with you. Deadspin has been slowly evolving into a shitshow the last few years. Tim Burke is a hack who posts slideshows of A-Rod striking out and racist twitter feeds. Greg Howard writes like someone’s 12 year-old cousin who just learned the word “fuck”. Jack Dickey was so thinned-skinned (or should I say fat-skinned) that he would delete comments anyone ever made about his weight (that was funny to watch them disappear). Petschky’s self-importance grows daily, and he pulls inferences from his ass 50% to make headlines (see the Lions-Bears article above). He is about as awesome as his neck tattoo. It is a shit-show over there. I still like Dom and Drew, but that’s about it.
Agreed that Deadspin is going to shit. I never would have thought that such a thing would happen under Craggs, so I’ll just blame Denton, since I don’t know any better. It’s a shame to see this happen, since Deadspin is where KSK got its start.
I still think Craggs is a great writer. I’d like to see he and Drew abandon that burning tire heap and write somewhere with a commitment to quality.
I find Deadspin okay. It hit bottom last year when they opened up the comments to be visible to everyone who posts. Kinja may have broken up the circle jerk environment of the AJ-era commentariat, but it was just painful to read. Now it’s fun again
