Horrific is a strong word. But agree he was always better on the page than the screen.

I'm sure Tom Ley at deadspin knows sooo much more than Rick Reilly about sports writing.

 

Give me a break.

"Ohhhh here comes a hot take down from Deadspin that a bunch of nerds in their parents' basement will LOL about"

 

Drew Magary is the worst.  Deadspin gives Reilly shit for recycling his material?  Magary does that stupid "your team suxxxx" bit every year.

 

"Oh Ravens, with your weird accents and camo pants!  Also your HOF LB stabbed someone!!!!"

Lol... I love it when Pedro gets all worked up like this. Nerds in their parents basement is one of his go to's.

I'm guessing Deadspin insulted The Hold Steady at some point, thus the reason for all of this vitriol...

Nah, sometimes the best you can do is go for the low-hanging fruit.

 

Take it from an expert :D

 

Also, I like what Brian Curtis (and likely others) are saying: "The AfterLife of Reilly"
