Will they rename it "Tyler Perry's Bleacher Report" just to remind people how much it sucks?

Bleacher Report is the worst site in the history of humanity. Only bad people read it. Only awful people author articles there. And only the worst scum from the darkest hole in the blackest part of Hell submit links from it to Fark.

Bleacher Report is just the latest in a long line of shiatty, shiatty sports blogs that get chronically submitted to Fark. Before BR it was SBnation, then it was yardbarker, then 670THESCORE, and before that it was SbB.

They all suck, none of them contributed anything of value, but they buy Drew his daily case of Maker's, so they keep getting greened.

Well at least SbB had galleries of overly retouched photos of women with large breasts.

Henceforth, all TBS programming will take the form of arduously long slideshows.
 
2012-08-06 04:33:53 PM
B/R delivers original and entertaining sports editorial content slideshows and is a leading sports media destination, delivering over 10 million monthly unique visitors. The company has developed a next-generation publishing model powered by an expanding base of passionate and knowledgeable contributors who deliver high-quality content that readers crave at the team and topic level slideshows.

A website that just makes lists, over and over and over

One sport site I read on regular basis will not allow Bleacher Report links in their forums.

They have been plagiarized by Bleacher Report too often.

The Big Bang Theory is the worst thing on TV. I never saw any of it until it hit syndication and I was forced to accidentally witness a few opening minutes of an episode before realizing what was going on and grabbing the remote. Damn you Seinfeld reruns for leading me into that shiat.

Amusingly enough, the same thing happened with TMZ a few years back. I would be watching Seinfeld while doing other things and all of a sudden this shiatty show would be on before I knew it. And now I know who Heidi Montag is.

The head of yardbarker seen quickly fashioning a crude "for sale" sign to hang on his website banner

Meanwhile over at ESPN the execs greedily rub their tentacles together at the prospect of buying TBS and all the TBS retard minions as a package in order to ruin them in the same fashion they ruined college football, world cup soccer, monday night football, Mike Leach, FARK sports, and general sports journalism standards and ethics.

I wish my phone had a way to filter Bleacher Report articles from the NHL feed. At least half of what pops up there is from that useless site. Like reading random posts from teenagers on HFBoards: "The San Jose Sharks look good, but not too good. They have a lot to make up for after a decade of being good, but not too good. This season, expect them to do good, but not too good. Now let's take a look at 10 blindingly obvious and/or ridiculous reasons why the Sharks will be good, but not too good, or what they can do to be even better, but not too...better.

1. Trade Joe Thornton. This would be a good move, but not too good. He is good. But not too good that a package of good-but-not-too-good picks and prospects could find Jumbo Joe playing in Canada next spring.

2. Trade Patrick Marleau. I think this is a good move without being too good of a move, if you get my meaning. Marleau is still young enough to be good, but not too good.

3. Bring back Nabokov. He was a good goaltender and I miss him so I think it'd be awesome if he was back.

4. But not too good, Nabokov.

5. You thought I'd missed that, didn't you?

6. Good.

7. But not too good.

8. Hire Owen Nolan as the General Manager. He was good, but not too good to sit around not being part of this team I vaguely remember as a 4 year-old earlier this century.

9. Go out and get the best free agent there is. That's a good move. Too good, apparently, since they won't seem to do that.

10. Trade Ryane Clowe for Malkin. Pittsburgh needs more grit and would jump at the chance to add Clowe's heart and tenacity to their line-up. Throw in Boyle and get Letang and Orpik back. That'd be good.

While Disney is a larger company than TimeWarner, TBS (a subsidiary of TimeWarner) is a MUCH larger company than ABC (parent of ESPN and subsidiary of Disney)

Did Bleacher Report ever do a slideshow of the best Bleacher Report slideshows?

Bleacher Report is the like the Chip Caray of sports blogs. They both manage to suck and blow at the same time.

Evidently, my proofreading skills do as well ...

Yahoo? Or someone else?

The irony of this sale is that it can only help Bleacher Report. That site's entire business model is ripping off other people's content. At least being owned by Time-Warner, there is a slim chance that the odd image their 50-slide slideshows might actually be content they own.

You're not allowed to talk anymore.

There are two types of links at Fark that make me cringe. One is any link from the Daily Fail. The other is any link from Bleacher Report.

You forgot SportsGrid and their weekly College Football "What We Learned" list. That was just one big heaping helping of suck too.

So TBS is going to allow high school kids that didn't get picked for the school paper to write articles for them now?

browser_snake: So TBS is going to allow high school kids that didn't get picked for the school paper to write articles for them now?


That is what every BR article reads like, I can't stand any of their "articles" but they fit right in with turners unoriginal content theme, either they copy real writers or steal ideas from forums. I know I have seen more than once where they take ideas from a Fark thread then drag it out into a 125 page slideshow.

you are a puppet: The Big Bang Theory is the worst thing on TV. I never saw any of it until it hit syndication and I was forced to accidentally witness a few opening minutes of an episode before realizing what was going on and grabbing the remote. Damn you Seinfeld reruns for leading me into that shiat.


3/10. The "I don't like things that are popular" bit has been done to death, and as long as you're going out of your way to mention Seinfeld unnecessarily you should have just gone full hipster and bragged about how you don't even watch TV al all.

Seinfeld is probably more popular than big bang theory and for the record the big bang theory does suck.

The Slideshow Report. The good news is since many of these media companies will always tinker with a website they just bought, I expect TBS to ruin the BR withing two years and will just kill it off by then.

This Amused me greatly, because it's true. I don't clich bleacher report links anymore. It's truly the absolutely worst sports site I've visited.

Pardon the Poor grammar, too lazy to fix
