Parker gets personal with Marinelli

    Just saw this on the FOX post-game show and I was disappointed when I heard this. Rob Parker was hounding Rod Marinelli about why Joe Barry -- Marinelli's son-in-law -- is still the defensive coordinator and, predictably, Marinelli stone-walls him. But at the end, Parker asks "Do you think your daughter should have married him?"

    Anyone have the over/under on how fast Parker's credential -- and credibility -- went out the door? Good grief, what the hell was that high school bullshit about?

    Not much I can say about it after seeing that. I'm still surprised on how that exchange unfolded.

    I'm sure Parker will explain why he went that route in his column on Monday.

    Hell, no one from the Lions have been able to kick anyone's asses, so don't expect them to go after Parker. [/sarcasm]

    Now, if blue type ends with a [/sarcasm], does that mean it really wasn't sarcasm, kinda like a double negative?

    Someone at the rival paper better exit the national sports journalist jellyfish society and fucking call his ass out, too.

    Deep.

    Do you agree with Costas that one can't control a destiny?

    Technically, he's right, since destiny means a determined outcome, essentially. But in the vernacular, it has sprouted a different, well-understood meaning. I wouldn't edit it out, necessarily

    Dools, you know some newbies won't get the blue font. Consider it a friendly reminder, because in 2009, we're going to enforce it like a mother. :)
