    Per The Big Lead:

    And in his debut column for his new site, he essentially declines to apologize for the RG III stuff. In case you were curious. He also repeats a conspiracy theory he heard about the Super Bowl: specifically that Jim Harbaugh threw the game in order to let his brother win, among other alleged reasons. I"m not quite sure what the point of the column is. If anybody can explain that theme, please illuminate below.

    That would require taking the time to read his column.

    Why in the world would anyone give away a Super Bowl game. Especially after the former Raiders' coach was just accused of that very same thing.

    Rob Parker working for a guy who might have masturbated in front of Erin Andrews. It's a match made in heaven!

    to be fair, he only repeated the harbaugh theory because it's the kind of talk heard in the real black guy barber shop he co-owns

    Yeah. Because Jim Harbaugh would roll over that easily... Wahb is back, a nation yawns

    Tho three grafs into this quagmire of a column, it is nice to see that he's going into this color blind...

    The column has been out for more than a week now. Keith Clinkscales, a former senior VP of content at ESPN and is in charge of the Jet Magazine affiliate.

    I didn't read the column - and won't - but took the bait and checked out the site. Interestingly, it's sponsoring something called "Chicken and Waffles," some sort of NBA All-Star Weekend party. In conclusion, Parker and The League of Extraordinary Shadows seem like perfect bedfellows.

    If Jim Harbaugh threw the Super Bowl, he should get an Oscar for that acting display on the sideline... Because he definitely sold me on the whole, "I'm not getting my way and I'm going to go batshit insane..." thing.

    I've never liked Parker, but if someone wants to hire him, more power to them... It will probably drive up traffic to the place for the first few weeks or so...

    Jim Harbaugh's devious plan...

    Let bro get out to a 28-6 lead, and then just to cover my altruism, pull the power cord to the 'dome, make a wicked comeback, and pay off the refs to assure pass interference isn't called on the potential game-winning play.

    Guy's a genius.

    Opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one. Like it or not, Parker has a voice and apparently a following.
