If it seems like there are a lot of KOTWs in this week’s Comments of the Week (motto: we really need to get a style guide around here to tell us when to use K or C when coming up with new phrases) it’s because there are a lot of Comments of the Week in this week’s KOTW. Even the open threads and live blogs were exceptionally fun this week as the Kommentariat really came into its own as we hit the quarter mark of the regular season.
One would like to think that this improvement in humor was because we’ve all become that much better at our jobs. We were better writers, you were better readers. Of course that thought would be wrong and the truth of it is that The Shield managed to fuck up less then usual for the 2014 season and well, the relief was palpable. Easier to joke when the sword of Damocles was not hanging over our heads with each incoming story.
I am your host Sarah Sprague and these are your Comments of the Week for September 30, 2014. Hey look, some happy Royals baseball fans:

I love it when you call me Bob Poppa
This is why Condoleezza Rice would make a great commissioner. There is no way she would approve an unsubstantiated attack on a Husain.
Oh he’s been flagged, for sure
– The NSA
Mike Wallace and Gromit
Not exactly shocking that the Raiders phoned it in.
Make It Snow
Raiders management considered firing Allen in London, right after the game, but it seemed like a mean time.
If you want to add to your drive to day-drink, click on the neckbeard tag above. 2008. HOLY SHIT WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR LIVES.
The NFL is not very good in the domestic violence space but as a league they’ve got the recycling space down cold.
Old School Zero
Wait a second. Where are the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, tenth, eleventh, twelfth, thirteenth, fourteenth, fifteenth, sixteenth, seventeenth, eighteenth, nineteenth, twentieth, twenty-first, twenty-second, twenty-third, twenty-fourth, twenty-fifth, twenty-six, twenty-seventh, twenty-eighth, twenty-ninth, thirtieth, thirty-first, thirty-second, thirty-third, thirty-fourth, thirty-fifth, thirty-sixth, thirty-seventh, thirty-eighth, and thirty-ninth pages of this column?
I assume the bridge collapsed because Stafford stared it down the whole time and led it into coverage with the truck.
“Sent from my Leapfrog”
It hope the Redskins are about to enter Wayne Fontes territory. The back-up QB is always better. When you name a new starter, the previous starter is now the back-up. Wait one game. Repeat.
TNF Second Half (God, what a hellish INT-filled game. -ss)
It’s like a sitcom. After a couple of commercials everything is back the way it was.
If Simmons’ should have learned one thing from the last month, it’s that nothing is punishable unless it’s on tape.
When they came for Playmakers, I said nothing because I worked the nights it was on TV.
When they came for the Frontline concussion piece, I said nothing because I’m not smart enough to understand PBS.
When the came for the Simmons, I said…well, still nothing because he’s kind of a tool.
As an Arizonan….
Ugh, now I’ve lost all credibility.
