I was waiting for the second part of the.headline...... sigh..... some folks have too much time
 
2013-09-26 08:22:47 PM
Is this headline missing a word or two? Or does the fact that I don't follow sports mean that I can never understand it?
 
2013-09-26 08:29:57 PM
A reported narked him out to the NFL? Asshole.
 
2013-09-26 08:30:22 PM
I'm convinced.  Forbes has hard hitting stories that make it worth buying the magazine.

How far has investigative journalism fallen? I'll tell you how far.

This.  Makes perfect sense to me based on context.

I can hear the discussion now: Maybe we should do a crumbling infrastructure piece, an interstate bridge with a one year old inspection and clean bill of health just dropped 2 feet. Nevermind that shiat Cam Newton has Under Armour logos on his helmet.

This reminds me of the losers who call in rules violations to the PGA.
 
2013-09-26 10:59:05 PM
So, is Goodell going to back-fine him after they review NFL Films and see he's always had it for 35 games? $350,000 or so?

I don't always kill people that show up wearing the same outfit as me, but when I do, I kill my tailor too.

A reported what?
 
2013-09-27 02:55:15 AM
it's certainly remarkable that the NFL has failed to catch what appears to be a two-plus year old uniform violation.

So the guy who "covers the business of sports" is shocked the NFL failed to notice something for 2 whole years when the writer himself just noticed it.

It's almost like it's an extremely minor non story.

Bitter Giants fan with access to online media outlet and press card throws public biatchfit to get opposing quarterback fined by authorities. Film at 11.

If I got a significant fine because this jerkwad pointed out a minor violation in such a way that FORCED the NFL to do something about it, i would hire investigators to follow this guy around to see if he may have done anything illegal or against the rules of HIS company, just enough to cost HIM the amount of my fine.

Scam Newton strikes again.

I don't see anything that even remotely suggests that he's a Giants fan, other than the fact that he currently resides in NYC, which is where Forbes HQ is.

And I assure you, actual Giants fans are bitter about what the Giants did on Sunday, not the Panthers or Cam Newton.
 
2013-09-27 06:56:44 AM
Clearly, this calls for someone like Joe Buck to complain about how this makes Cam look like a selfish player and proof he's not a proper leader in the locker room.

Never mind the fact that the Panthers are on a BYE week, because distracting from the game to deliver a re-hashed narrative is a staple of what passes for modern broadcast journalism.

I sound fat: If I got a significant fine because this jerkwad pointed out a minor violation in such a way that FORCED the NFL to do something about it, i would hire investigators to follow this guy around to see if he may have done anything illegal or against the rules of HIS company, just enough to cost HIM the amount of my fine.


Be nice to find out if someone working for Forbes has made any questionable trades that could have been based on inside information, wouldn't it?

CheatCommando: Be nice to find out if someone working for Forbes has made any questionable trades that could have been based on inside information, wouldn't it?


Which might be possible if Forbes contained any information. Maybe you could snare a Fortune reporter that way. Forbes is more like Us magazine, except instead of fat girls reading about starlets and dreaming about what it would be like to be pretty you've got meatballs reading about their bosses and dreaming about what it would be like to be rich and powerful.

Maybe Forbes should be doing more of what Easterbrook is on to instead of ratting out players for petty uniform violations.

swahnhennessy: Maybe Forbes should be doing more of what Easterbrook is on to instead of ratting out players for petty uniform violations.


You mean, like, complaining about how unrealistic television shows are?

(Okay, I kid. A little. About 50% of what Easterbrook writes is good stuff, like the piece you cite above. But about 40% of it is the same tired themes over and over again, and about 10% of it is head scratching "say WHAT?" stuff.)
 
2013-09-27 08:31:06 AM
I realize the NFL keeps pretty tight tabs on the uni issue, because let's face it, these guys would look like a NASCAR vehicle if they had the chance. But maybe they should worry more about arrests than whether your socks are too low.
 
2013-09-27 08:35:43 AM
OOOOOO You got an unapproved logo oooooon!!!  I'm tellllllliiiiiiiiin'!!!

Seriously, WTF was that? The author of TFA deserves to be cockpunched repeatedly.
 
2013-09-27 09:02:34 AM
It's kind of dumb, but seeing what hockey uniforms look like in other countries, I'm all for strict bans on unapproved corporate logos.

C'mon, you gotta feel for the guy... he took a pay cut when he left Auburn so he has to make ends meet somehow.

Cliffs:
The NFL has a contract with Nike and players are not allowed to wear any corporate logos except those approved by the league.

Cam Newton wears a visor with an Under Armour logo on it and doesn't get fined.

The execs at UA are probably not happy that the author is pointing this out.
 
2013-09-27 10:36:59 AM
How did an UA logo get on equipment issued by Nike, someone must -- aaaand I don't care. It's rich companies paying people to wear their cloth so more people will buy similar-looking versions.

There have been people who made a big deal out of this kind of thing before.

I was listening to The BS Report podcast yesterday. The guest was Robert Smigel. He told a story about a roast for Ditka. Smigel said he sat beside McMahon and McMahon had his own cooler of beer under the table. Later that night McMahon said "you think I'm getting up?", and pissed right in the cooler of beer.

Should have been Dick Gordon instead.  That WOULD have been...The Story.

I don't know. If Company A is paying Organization B a farkton of money to enforce a rule and they fail I could see why a business magazine might take note of that.
I mean, I don't care, but I understand.
 
2013-09-27 07:28:45 PM
I've stared at those pictures and I still can't see what the author is talking about. It's not very effective advertizing IMO.

So a reporter has a problem with what other people wear to work? He ought to have a great time at a Lady Gaga concert.
