I hate every fiber of his being. He's awful and everything he writes is wrong, coupled with being annoying. Its uncanny how awful he is. If he was around when this thread was thriving, he would have killed it. Thankfully, he wasnt.

Maybe in the real world, he's not so awful (evidence says otherwise) but here, he makes me want to fight. Nobody makes me want to fight. Its beyond weird. I almost feel bad, but I dont

He released a twitter statement:

"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."


Let's for a second pretend that Reilly is telling the truth. He thought his FIL was saying that he didn't have a problem with the name, but it turns out that he actually finds it wildly offensive. OK, that's a pretty big difference, but whatever. Isn't the fact that he still refuses to edit or amend or do anything about his original column with the wildly inaccurate quotes still a hugely terrible thing to do? .

This still seems like something you get fired over.

Can you imagine how horribly he must have behaved for it to get to this point?

"Look, Rick, you're married to my daughter, and I am not a monster, so take a few days and, in your next column, maybe throw something up about how you misinterpreted what I said? Doesn't have to be a huge deal, but I can't have everyone thinking I'm a race traitor, you know?"

"No, I don't think I'll be doing that. Instead I am going to ejaculate on your daughter's face."


Like, how many conversations did they have? How many times did Reilly just say, "haha, fuck you old man. Talk to the press, I dare you OH WAIT I AM THE PRESS MOTHERFUCKER." He had to have been such a giant douche.

I was doing some research for something else and I ended up using a three year old article to help with my point. It occurred to me that there's going to be somebody a year from now looking for something to support his pro-Redskins argument and he's going to find Reilly's article and say, "See, this guy is a Native American and he finds the whole issue silly!"

Which is a terrible argument, but still.

Here's the original article: http://espn.go.com/n...not-easy-sounds

"The whole issue is so silly to me," says Bob Burns, my wife's father and a bundle holder in the Blackfeet tribe. "The name just doesn't bother me much. It's an issue that shouldn't be an issue, not with all the problems we've got in this country."

Even if Reilly still doesn't want to update it to reflect his true feelings, why doesn't ESPN add an editor's note or something?

I don't know why this bothers me so much.

So I'm watching ESPN's post game show, and Ray Lewis is breaking down the Cam Newton hitch TD pass to Ted Ginn at the end of the carolina-NE game. Ray Goes into great detail about the play, talking about how wrong it was, with the DB spun around, to let Ginn go to the outside and burn. He said with a player who is that fast, you have to square up and force him inside, where you can get help. All very detailed. There's only one problem with that analysis...

GINN RAN TO THE INSIDE OF THE DB AND PAST HIM. The whole point that Lewis was making was horribly wrong. The DB DID Force ginn inside. Christ, Ray Lewis is staggeringly bad at announcing. Not Emmitt Bad but close.

Here's the TD and see for yourself

When you are a boss like Lewis, reality fits your narrative.

I used to be a fan of Skip Bayless, but ever since his love affair with Tebow, I can't stand to listen to the guy (and not just because of the Tebow love, but everything he says is just completely absurd these days).

I've already read that article, and I actually commented on Grantland's Facebook posting of that article, where I would say 90% of the posts were about how awful Collingsworth is, and how ESPN should burn the article. I was pleasantly surprised with Joe Public.

ESPN is paying him 2-3 mil a year. It's horrifying.
I'd lend a hand, but it's stuck in the fist and gun position.
