Oakland relieved of the Raiders

The NFL Monday OK’d the Raiders’ move to Vegas.

How ESPN killed ESPN

The five pillars of white privilege enjoyed by author Mitch Albom

This fucking guy...I might have to become the first person ever to burn Tuesdays with Morrie. By Andrew J. Pridgen Mitch Albom, author of children’s books for adults and surreptitious Trump supporter, is a fuckhead. Sorry, I know that sentence was terse and not very nice, but it is in words he’d understand. Albom quizzically weighed in on the growing number of New...

Marching on from the NFL

Welcome to the era of brazen thievery at the behest of our sniveling and shriveled rapidly aging but refusing-to-ever-die corporate overlords...and how to do something about it. By Andrew J. Pridgen Thursday night as the clock struck midnight — the exact same time the GOP-led senate was repealing Obamacare 51-48 which will set the stage for insurance companies (why do we...

Let’s Be Very Clear: The Chargers are the NFL’s Problem, Not San Diego’s

The Chargers and their shill scribes are having a tough time accepting that if they want to stay in San Diego and make money in San Diego, they need to take the financial risk to make it happen.
