It seems Deadspin is about to go guns blazing at ESPN re: sex rumors

    From Daulerio, in light of the Steve Phillips stuff:

    There are many, many, many other people employed at the WWL who have (allegedly) boned assistants, interns, on-air talent, executives, etc. However, it's a little unclear as to what lines need to be crossed in order for them to be suspended.

    And since the tenuous connection between rumor and fact for accuracy's sake has been a little eroded here, well, it's probably about time to just unload the inbox of all the sordid rumors we've received over the years about various ESPN employees. Chances are, at this point, there's some truth to them. We'll just throw 'em out there and see how many "no comments" or, you know, actual comments or "you would be completely wrongs" there are about these situations. Consider this one giant all-day version of "Deleted Scenes" or something.

    Coming up first...ESPN "personality" Erik Kuselias.

    So, Bristolites, strap in — it's gonna be a long day.
  2. If they just start posting unsubstantiated emails that can destroy someone's reputation, I have made my last visit to that site and will encourage as many people as I can to do the same.

    I think we can safely assume that Waylon is not outing himself as Dan Rather.

    They've been gearing up for this moment for years. I wondered what took so long...
    "Coming up first...ESPN personality Erik Kuselias." Christ. That guy has to sit there and wonder...

    Must be a trip to work in Gawker's legal department.

    No kidding. I was just thinking that. Looks like a good day for Wendy's to advertise their new bacon deluxe on Deadspin. Page views are going to be crazy.

    Other than a shitload of page views and a probable server crash, what can they hope to gain by this?
  9. They won't do it. They'll back down. They'll crow about how they were all ready to do the right thing and name names, but the pussy legal eagles wouldn't let them go through with it. So it's win-win. They look like the tough guys who were going to out ESPN's adulterers, while meanwhile not having to face any of the consequences that would come with actually doing so.

    I'm calling their bluff.

    Here's hoping they do it.

    Go Deadspin!

    Yeah, but their "reveals" are predicated on the notion that I give a shit who Eric Kuselius is banging.

    I don't give a fuck about Eric Kuselius in general, much less who he's sticking his dick into.

    There's nothing more fun than an unsubstantiated rumor that could wreck someone's personal life.

    Good to know that journalism isn't dead!
