Yeah, Deadspin is a mess and I'm glad it's mostly dead, but this story interests me far more than the Deadspin drama.

My first thought when Goodell came out with this statement was exactly how Stills described it.  The NFL was part of the race baiting problem.  Kaepernick tried to protest peacefully, and the NFL went into full "protect Murica!" mode.  They caved in, avoided the issue, they went out of their way to fluff up the conservative USA! jingoism pretend patriots protect our boys in blue, our soldiers and our war dead illogical imbeciles who were really just thinly disguised racists.  The NFL and Goodell enabled these farkers, all because they didn't want to have a conversation about the disparate treatment of black people by law enforcement in the United States.

Goodell is doing what he has always done, and that's cover the owners.  He still has a job because he is the shield that the owners use to protect themselves from any accountability.    The fans can throw all their ire at him and ignore the egregious behavior of the owners.

Night Train to Wakanda: kdawg7736: Forty-Three: Wow, Deadspin still exists, huh?  Didn't all the writers quit en masse last year over some bs with the new owners or something?

Fortunately, the headline and tag seem to contain all the necessary information.

/approves

Can we even consider Deadspin reliable news anymore?

It was never reliable news in the first place.


And it's the pot with color commentary on the kettle.

phimuskapsi: It exists but the entire prior staff is gone and what remains in it's place is a heaping, flaming, pile of garbage.


Agreed, and the big irony is that the reason everyone left, the stupid "STICK TO SPORTS!" edict, is still being ignored by the new crew. They just aren't anywhere close to as good at social commentary as the old guard was. The morons in charge literally killed their most profitable, maybe-biggest-name property over a battle that changed nothing.
