    Must read story in August issue of Esquire. Clearly has to be up for consideration as one of the 2012 National Magazine Awards.

    I have no idea what this article is about, but I like when Boom is in his 'get busy' SportsJournalists.com phases.

    Link? Topic?

    Also, quite irritating that as a print subscriber I don't also have access to the IPad edition.

    Sorry off limits topic for SJ, but I did at least feel that such an important story at least deserved some attention be drawn to it.

    Google it. You can read it without subscription.

    Ah, Ok. Now I know the story you are talking about. Got a lot of play when it came out.

    Why? It's a great piece of work.

    I don't see any "greatness." It's a good piece but not "greatness."

    Boom is overselling how good it is. I'd engage in a discussion of why it's not as good as Boom claims it to be, if people are interested. But perhaps Boom thinks it so good because of the subject matter and who it criticizes vs. how it's constructed.

    Would be a great discussion but don't think it's right to engage here.

    And no it's not the subject matter. It's more that it calls attention to a story that the major media outlets have been soft on.

    THEN WHY BRING IT UP?

    Who's engaging? I just thought that Junod deserved some props for a story that he clearly put a lot into and did not just write on a whim.
