  1. Some interesting stuff in it. He doesn't speak to TO anymore.


    Nice gesture.

    Said it before many times - say what you will about his work, I've never heard anyone say he wasn't a good guy.

    You sure won't hear Terry McDonnell saying PK's a bad guy:

  4. PK didn't make a lot of fanfare out it. He was asked about it. He acknowledged it, but he didn't go into a detail. He wasn't bragging, or even making an issue of it. He was asked a question and he responded .

    By no means was that a knock against PK. Not in the least. It wasn't him who made an issue of it.
  6. OK. Thanks for clearing it up.

    It seems like Peter is a very nice guy.

    I also think Tommy Craggs post on Deadspin this afternoon questioning WTF he was thinking when he decided to mull which team Pat Tillman would be playing for if he were still alive is an interesting one. The army clearly used Tillman for its own PR purposes to further its own agenda, and now Peter seems to be using Pat Tillman to enhance the legend/rep of Bill Belichick.


    For what it's worth, I believe Krakauer has said recently that, during his research for his Tillman book, he found no such evidence claiming Tillman wanted out of the army and back into the NFL.

    King does, or writes, some odd stuff, but there's no question of his access or presence on the NFL. He's worked very hard to get where he is.

    I don't agree with all he says or does, of course, but for the most part, he's as fine of a sports reporter as there is these days.
