These folks better have a good sense of humor; or, Whitlock burns many bridges

  1. Yeah, I'm sure Lupica is chuckling about that ... Um, yeah. ... Sure.

    It's just so ... unimportant. How does that level of writing/reporting(?) merit a full-time job at survivable-plus wages, but dozens of people are laid off each quarter at sustenance-level shops, with few hopes of another gig?

    Remember when Jason used to post here under his own name? One minute he'd be your buddy, the next he'd turn on you.

    Good times.

    Oh and Jason, it's "The Cheetah," not "Cheetah's." Good grief, do the place the honor of getting it right.

    oh, mikey knows, all right. doesn't mean he's got any sense of humor about it. when's the last time you ever read a self-deprecating line from him regarding his size? i'll tell you the exact date:


    so he's not laughing over this. piece of shit column nonetheless.

    If you have a sense of humor, the column is a waste of time. Not funny, not clever.

    Unimportant is right. And less.
  7. I can't stand any of his subjects, but can you quote me a single one that came off as in any way funny?

    The very thought of this makes me giggle maniacally. Can we make it happen? Somehow?

    I roll my eyes as Jason Whitlock continues to ruin the name of sports journalism with garbage like this.

    Try something crazy once in a while, Jason: serve your readers. Average sports fan cares little about anything in that column outside sex scandals and Oprah.

    I clicked on it figuring it couldn't be as bad as you all said.

    Turned out it was even worse than you all said.

    I apologize for clicking on it.

    I don't get the hate on Whitlock. I have met him on three occasions at major events and have never found him to be anything, but a nice guy. Not calling any of you liars, simply saying I haven't seen it.
