    Don't get me wrong, Jason is is the loud mouthed guy at the barbershop who shouts out his opinion. He can be wrong sometimes but kudos for him for having a non-politically correct opinion.

    Greg Howard is a race baiting putz. Just follow him on twitter for one day. He will have a long and undistinguished career

    Yeah, but Whitlock has become old-age Bill Cosby without the raping.

    I don't think any of that came as a surprise. Can you imagine working for Jason Whitlock? Professional shit disturbers (and he's real good at it) aren't cut out to be bosses.
  6. Boy, Deadspin really has it out for this "Black Grantland." See: Black grantland News, Video and Gossip - Deadspin

    I'm really not that interested to read all of it, but this was interesting, though.

    Gotta admit - I've never had a boss quite like that.

    Reading it, I don't even know where my mind immediately goes. The whole enterprise seems like the remarkable drain of time and resources. Whitlock's manifesto does include some good pointers, but he's built up this stuff in a way that makes his writers almost afraid to even do their work well.

    Whitlock is a blowhard, a buffoon and the shittiest writer in America with a huge platform. Terrible when he started at KC, terrible now.

    Man, this is one train wreck that will be interesting to watch. How could anyone work for a guy who treats people like that? I understand he has a vision that is important to him, but he doesn't seem to respect anyone's ideas. He is the unquestioned leader. And apparently and unquestioned a-hole.

    The piece is only partially about having a non-politically correct opinion. It's more about a narcissist feeding his insecurity demons.

    I would think that Whitlock was a poor choice to be a manager given his lack of experience and lack of humility. But I would have said the same about Bill Simmons and Grantland but that seems to have worked out well for Bill.

    I wouldn't be surprised if this thing never fully launches.
