Whenever the universe calls, Shea Serrano and the FOH Army are waiting to deliver.
FOX Sports and MTV News are merely the latest to abandon quality writing in favor of video. Where does it end?
A look at the landscape of longform journalism in the wake of SB Nation’s since-removed story on a serial rapist. Spoiler: The story didn’t need fewer words; it needed better ones.
The second conversation of the week with Andrew is all about the Cavs and sports media.
Fare thee well, Grantland.
Grantland is dead. Long live Grantland.
No matter how bad the Browns (or Indians, or Cavs) get, don’t give up on them. Hate them if you have to. But don’t let go. Because you want to be there when they finally have their moment.
A new blog is on the scene and I talk to Mike from Bottlegate about local sports media.
With the Indians at home, who are you rooting for?
It takes a special kind of player to be named to Grantland’s “Triangle All-Stars.” It’s not always the best players; it’s not always the most talented—that’s what postseason awards are for. But for the annual All-Star team picked by Grantland’s own Robert Mays, it’s about which players make Sundays the most enjoyable. Who does the
It’s Monday, you guys. Here’s to it being a happy one. If you’re a fan of the Carolina Panthers, Pittsburgh Steelers, or Green Bay Packers, however, you’ve likely had better ones. In the event you spent the weekend in a windowless bomb shelter, Packers All-Pro wide receiver Jordy Nelson will miss the rest of the
In his Tuesday column, Grantland basketball scribe and WFNY favorite Zach Lowe addressed the past, future, perception, and evolution of Cavaliers forward Kevin Love. Lowe rehashed the events that led to Love being traded from the Minnesota Timberwolves to the Cavs, including the Golden State Warriors’ refusal to include Klay Thompson in rumored trades between the
It’s a far cry from Dion Waiters being named preseason co-captain of the Triangle All-Stars―read that again and tell me it wasn’t prescient―but another Cavalier is getting some recognition on a Grantland All-Star team. Kyrie Irving is the latest to receive such an honor, as he was named to WFNY favorite Zach Lowe’s Marc Gasol All-Stars, the
When we last left Grantland’s Editor in Chief Bill Simmons, he was driving the Kyrie Irving Irrational Hate bus, attempting to pick up guests who would believe his biased and otherwise incredulous beliefs surrounding the Cleveland Cavaliers point guard. Something about a scoring mentality. Something about not making teammates better. Something about his contract extension.
Grantland’s Jonah Keri is a big fan of the Cleveland Indians this season, so much so that he recently placed them among the top five teams in baseball. With a Cy Young candidate for an ace, an MVP candidate in left field and one of the best catchers in the game, this makes sense. But
Can a team that fell short of the playoffs and didn’t make many headlines in the offseason actually be among the favorites heading in to the next year? If you ask Grantland’s Jonah Keri, that answer is a resounding ‘Yes’ as the Cleveland Indians are ranked fifth in his 2015 MLB Preview. Keri makes sure
Most Cleveland Cavaliers fans probably missed the Grantland Basketball Hour, which aired Sunday night, because they were busy complaining about music/watching the Grammy’s, or catching The Walking Dead and the premiere of Better Call Saul on AMC. Meanwhile, Jalen Rose, Ryen Russillo, and Bill Simmons were counting down Simmons’ top 60 trade assets in the
He may be a “no-name,” but Cleveland Indians catcher Yan Gomes finds himself ranked ahead of stars like St. Louis’ Adam Wainwright, Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki and Atlanta’s Freddy Freeman in Grantland’s latest list of trade value within Major League Baseball. Gomes, ranked 25th in all of baseball, is one of three members of the Tribe
We know that Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer has played well through this point in 2014. We know that Johnny Manziel is waiting in the wings while Hoyer is staring down the barrel of some contract negotiations. But on his present deal, leading the Browns to a 6-3 record and a first-place standing in the AFC
I hate using words like “epic,” but this Thursday—between pregame outside, pregame inside and the game itself—is shaping up to be an event that may very well bring me to utilize such verbiage.
