I know this was in another thread but I think it applies better here. Why do people hate Dan LeBatard? He always comes across as a laid back guy, who is mildly funny. Never comes across like a skip bayless blowhard.

They did 500 for the NBA, as well. Seems like it's just an arbitrary number they settled on that wouldn't be too unmanageable.

There's not even 500 NBA players on active rosters

Found this to be interesting and informative and frankly, the guy makes a pretty god drat good point about concussions and how NFL players view them.

"Sometimes if you're buzzed or dazed ... if you get your bell rung they consider that a concussion—I wouldn't," Polamalu said. "If that's considered a concussion, I'd say any football player at least records 50 to 100 concussions a year."


I'm not going to say ignorance is bliss, but I have the feeling I won't enjoy football quite as much as I used to.

Um, I don't really follow nascar at all, but isn't Dale Jr. consistently a top-10 guy? Like doesn't he make it into the Chase dealy every year? That seems fairly successful.

Wasn't Stan saying last year that he had a deal lined up with ESPN that mysteriously got pulled off the table?

as far as Simmons goes...he generally doesn't seem to take himself seriously, but then you have situations where he's legitimately upset that he wasn't made general manager of an NBA franchise. His column's are hit and miss, but I like his podcasts, and as someone said earlier, he'll forever be ok to me for giving us 30-for-30.

The goal is to make the word so common and normalize it to such a degree that the mere mention instantly causes the act itself to occur, kind of like a manchurian candidate or police dog.

You're right leokitty, I was confusing Crion with a more reasonable version of mornacale.

While I stand by the reporting in my Sept. 18 column about the Washington Redskins nickname controversy, and felt I accurately quoted my father-in-law in the piece, clearly he feels differently. This is an incredibly sensitive issue, and Bob felt he had more to say on the subject after that column was posted on ESPN.com. We've spoken and cleared this up. I admire Bob and respect his opinions, and he's welcome to express them. Bob and I are good and I'm looking forward to my next steak with him.

I wouldn't go to Jalopnik to read about killer whales and why its probably bad to keep them in a concrete bathtub. That's what io9 is for. Similarly, I don't particularly want to read about race relations in a sports website (unless the race relations thing is, like, Jackie Robinson or about the Negro Leagues or something).

Its a good thing Grantland isn't just a sports website and never has been, then.

The difference this year is that most of these other countries have at least had their poo poo together enough that they could pretend things were okay. That Brazil can't even pass off any semblance of not being a disaster is kind of worrying.
