Are they at least Free Credit Reports?
 
2012-11-28 02:45:34 PM
IMPORTANT: ALL SPORTS NEWS EVER IS BROKEN BY ESPN. ANY NEWS NOT BROKEN BY ESPN IS NOT NEWS.

We now return to our regularly scheduled shoddy sports coverage, already in progress.
 
2012-11-28 02:56:50 PM
One of their favorite tricks is "ESPN sources confirm..." rather than actually crediting who reported the story first.
 
2012-11-28 03:21:25 PM
They need to talk about Tim Tebow more. They don't give him nearly enough coverage.

IMPORTANT: WE DON'T COVER IT, SO THE NHL DOES NOT EXIST.

IMPORTANT: THE NHL STILL DOES NOT EXIST, BUT, IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH US.

It is the ESPN version of Fox News's "... Some people say...".

Sorry, my loathing of the awfulness that is Sports by Brooks outweighs my loathing of ESPN.
 
2012-11-28 03:51:33 PM
Does ESPN now suspend Steve Levy over this?

Came in here to say the same thing. Sports By Brooks is probably the only sports "journalism" outfit in the world that could make me take ESPN's side on anything.

The only accurate/truthful person on ESPN is Gonzalo "Papi" Lebatard.

You mean a news reporting agency doesn't want to give free publicity to a competitor? SHOCKING!

yeah apparently working for les miles' agent by throw out a ridiculous tweet about arkansas offering les 27.5mil over 5 years.

Stab disappeared real quick, didn't it? Either they ran out of pay-for-play money or Brooks kicked Drew's puppy. Either way, we all win.

Stab? SbB, you FARKING iPad. Steve Jobs even made it so he could determine what I want to type, dammit. That's it, I'm jailbreaking this biatch, and there's not a damn thing that Apple can do about it.

Oh, and Fark SbB.

No need to get all SbBby over it.

Is there some advantage to "breaking" a story in today's Twitter age? Anything you break will be spread around the Internet in 30 seconds anyway and really who gives a shiat who "broke" the story first?
 
2012-11-28 06:13:10 PM
Hopefully NBCSports will steal some of their thunder in the next couple of years.

Aside from highly questionable and one or two others, ESPN has become a bunch of bloated drama queens going through the motions. They are bringing sports down to the level of soap operas.
 
2012-11-28 06:13:19 PM
Some people say Tim Tebow will be the quarterback and main wide receiver for the Chicago Bears next year.

We've also heard some people say that Akili Smith is replacing Tony Romo next year.

/IF YOU REPEAT THIS, DO NOT CREDIT ME. JUST SAYS "SOME PEOPLE SAY"

IMPORTANT: DO NOT CREDIT SPORTS BY BROOKS FOR A STORY.

...or else people will know it's probably bullshiat.

Real journalists like to get credit for their work instead of having ESPN rip it off and pretend the work belongs to them.
 
2012-11-28 06:20:02 PM
The only thing SbB was ever good for was the women that appeared there. Now that they're gone, it's just another loudmouth with a blog. It's a waste of webspace.

Tavillion: IMPORTANT: ALL SPORTS NEWS EVER IS BROKEN BY ESPN. ANY NEWS NOT BROKEN BY ESPN IS NOT NEWS.

Well it is sports by brooks which is about as credible as a high school paper.....

What's even funnier is that anyone at Arkansas would think Les would leave LSU for their shiathole.
 
2012-11-28 06:23:20 PM
They should give Tucker Max full credit.

I was going to say, "when did Sports By Brooks contribute any original content?" I thought their entire business model was to repost other news sources.

True. But what does that have to do with SbB?

Which one was the dark haired chick with the giant rack? She was European or something IIRC.

The name escapes me now, but last I heard she had started a not-quite-softcore porn site.

That'd be Denise Milani (I presume) who went from this...

And of course there's the whole sordid story of her site getting into a mess of legal trouble which ended up with it being taken down

Denise Milano. Bathe her and bring her to me.
 
2012-11-28 06:51:07 PM
No matter who they work for, journalists make their name by the stories they can break. This was a douchebag move.

Once SbB dropped the girls, I stopped going there.

//Loved Jenna, Kim, and Jessica (redhead).

SbB got rid of the women? Jeebus, then all they're left with is reposted news stories.

Funny stuff. The network which hosts a program called 'The Sports Reporters', guys who presumably know the value of proper attribution, blow it off when it's convenient. Typical.

I'll start my boycott of ESPN right after the OSU/Duke game coming up in a few minutes.
