Area Man Tells ESPN to Eff Off

Quick point before I get to the humorous content: The "prestige" media has prestige only because people confer that prestige on it. Stop conceding that prestige, and they're not prestigious any longer.

A lot of people take pics and videos and post them. The major networks then ask -- for free -- for rights to republish the photos or videos.

Most say yes, just because it's "prestigious" to have a media company use your work (for free!) so long as they give you some kind of minor credit at the bottom of the page.

Maybe people should start saying "No," or "Yes, if you pay me a lot of money, assholes."

Enter Abdul, who took this amusing photo of a guy trying to rev up the runners at the Boston Marathon:


ESPN immediately begged him to let them use his picture -- for free!, but with attribution.


With a "courtesy"? Oh man. What dicks. They really think The Commoners will just fall over themselves to make ESPN revenue, in exchange for "a courtesy."

Enter Abdul, or as I call him, the Hero of a New Media Age.


He then went on to permit other outlets to use his photo -- just not ESPN.


Then he continued letting people not called "ESPN" use it, but realized he could make demands:


Sports Center did wind up blocking him:


Obviously, this super famous scientist did not tell ESPN to fuck off out of what we'd call a political motive (though he was talking about bias, I guess).

But for whatever reason, he told the Corporate Media that he was not impressed by their prestige, he did not covet their "courtesy," and they could not have an inch of his aid.

And that's good.

2 One thing I absolutely LOVED was reporters were supposedly getting heckled at Trump events until the point they were getting scared.

They are not used to getting punched back.

I would love it if the MSM had to hire bodyguards because they no longer felt safe in public.

This guy's not the first one to tell ESPN to fuck off b/c of their role in the Deflategate nonsense. It's basically a unified sentiment here in New England that ESPN can go take a long, hard pineapple-fuck up the ass.

21 ESPN blows.

They've got a nice, sympathetic story about the late Aaron Hernandez, who killed himself in prison today. He apparently teared up a couple of days ago when acquitted of murdering two people that he almost certainly did murder. His fiance and child from her were in the courtroom.

So touching. He was convicted, of course, of murdering the witness to the double murder that he was just acquitted of and was serving a life sentence without chance of parole.

Talk about the Poster Boy for Penthouse to Outhouse. Signed a 40 million dollar contract, playing for the Patriots, baby on the way, hot fiance. Then he kills two guys because one of them spilled a drink on him in a bar, and . . .

Fuck ESPN.

102 So how does this Abdul guy get an official Blue Checkmark from twitter?
Posted by: josephistan at April 19, 2017 01:02 PM (7HtZB)
--------

My daughter sent me this on Monday just a couple hours after his first tweet to ESPN telling them to eff off. I asked her who this Abdul guy was with the check mark and all. She said she had no idea; she found it on Barstool Sports.

So, some Masshole I guess.

103 Listening to Mike and Mike this morning (because there was NOTHING ELSE and I was desperate), we got the pleasure of listening to Mike Greenberg chatting with a couple of other people (Mike Golic not among them) about whether or not the Patriots should visit the White House today in light of the Hernandez suicide. The three of them were in agreement that they SHOULDN'T, because optics or something.


To which I say, optics? WHAT optics? Hernandez hasn't been with the team in YEARS. They've won two Super Bowls since then. He is a non-entity in terms of his connection to the team. The only thread tying them together is he WAS on the team at the time he committed murder.


They got rid of him. End of story.


So why EXACTLY would his death cause an "optics" problem for the Patriots TODAY? It wouldn't, except to ESPN, who have a particularly strong hate boner for the Boston market in general, and the Patriots in particular.


Fricking hacks, every last one of them.


Speaking of the White House visit today, Brady didn't go (I honestly didn't think he would after all the crap he got around the Super Bowl for his support of Trump), but Gronk was there, and he crashed Sean Spicer's daily press conference. It was awesome. ^_^

What he was acquitted of was additional murder charges. He already was convicted of murder and sentenced to life without parole. Despite his acquittal of additional murder charges, he was convicted of violating gun laws (I believe) which added an additional 5 yrs to his life w/o parole.

181 So apparently according to Mass law, Hernandez's suicide will result in his conviction in the Odin Lloyd murder case being overturned because he hadn't used up all of his appeals. Which could potentially make it harder for Lloyd's family to sue Hernandez's estate in civil court - which for all I know might have already happened.

OT: I love this site -- www.forestry-supplers.com

An interesting bit of practical knowledge of which I had never before heard --

[Tree] trunk circumference contracts daily during morning and early afternoon as storage water moves out of the trunk to the crown. In late afternoon and evening, the trunk expands as root water recharges the storage volume in the trunk. When this cycle begins to decrease in magnitude, the tree is under water stress. Seasonally, the trunk slowly forms a ring of wood. Band dendrometers can determine when and how much wood is formed. Once the yearly pattern is established, deviations from this pattern due to fertilizer, water or sickness can be determined, often before visual symptoms appear.

Posted by: broseidon being a capitalist pigdog (yknow, working) at April 19, 2017 01:05 PM (oZ6kz)


I have this weird blind spot, where I don't see the cities as the same, across sports. So the city of Pittsburgh, for example. In baseball season it's the Pirates, and in my youth I hated the Pirates, but they were so pathetic for so long, that I don't really care all that much about them these days.

The Stealers however, were the Steal Curtain, man! Intense, hard, brutal winners. That's Pittsburgh to me, during football season.

Somehow I don't see the city as the same for Pirates and Stealers. In my mind it's two different, distinct places.

And Boston... man, I hate the Red Sox. Hate. Even though I used to love them. And I used to hate the Patsies, but now as the anti-Goodells, I love them.

I don't generally have any concept of how New Englanders are the same folks, with both teams.

Red Sox fans are the worst in the country. Period. Worse than the Cubs, in fact, and that's saying a lot.

That same disconnect exists in fans. For years I've heard Red Sox fans complain about the Yankees bragging about their history of championships - ancient history, they said.

Well, with the Celtics potentially about to become only the 3rd #1 seed (and the 2nd real #1 seed - one of them was in the 1999 strike season) to lose in the 1st round, how are Celtics fans responding? By going 'neener neener we've got 17 rings and you don't!'

247 [Tree] trunk circumference contracts daily during morning and early afternoon as storage water moves out of the trunk to the crown. In late afternoon and evening, the trunk expands as root water recharges the storage volume in the trunk. When this cycle begins to decrease in magnitude, the tree is under water stress. Seasonally, the trunk slowly forms a ring of wood. Band dendrometers can determine when and how much wood is formed. Once the yearly pattern is established, deviations from this pattern due to fertilizer, water or sickness can be determined, often before visual symptoms appear.

Sorcerer is really good. It's a remake of a French film Wages of Fear, which is even better.

It's about desperate men who take the job of transporting trucks of nitro, needed to blow out an oil rig fire, over jungle roads.

The guy was nothing but trouble all the way back to his college days at Florida.He was an immensely talented player who was overlooked in the NFL Draft because teams were afraid to draft him.He got a chance to straighten himself out with the Patriots and he craped on them his pregnant girlfriend and unborn daughter because he'd rather be a gangster.

'Sorcerer' is a reboot, by the way. You should watch the original: 'Wages of Fear'. 1950s, French language, filmed in glorious black and white.

Posted by: OregonMuse, deplorable since 2004 at April 19, 2017 01:40 PM (8ZUdQ)

So he gets out five years from now?

What he was acquitted of was additional murder charges. He already was convicted of murder and sentenced to life without parole. Despite his acquittal of additional murder charges, he was convicted of violating gun laws (I believe) which added an additional 5 yrs to his life w/o parole.

307 Probably

I would love it if society started treating these people as pariahs instead of buying their bullshit that they are just offering legal representation and are part of the process.

If you knowingly get a murderer free, you're an accessory as far as I'm concerned.

Instead, the lawyers that beat these charges for their clients are treated like celebrities.
Posted by: Maritime at April 19, 2017 01:15 PM (X7XlZ)


I always find it amazing that on a board full of people who bitch about the government and media you can always find a large "law and order" contingent that thinks that, when it comes to the defense of accused, it's completely acceptable to swallow whatever case the government presents to the media.

Posted by: Alex #11 at April 19, 2017 02:06 PM (ka13S)

308 @307: Yeah, this is where I gotta disagree with some of the above posts. Does it suck that money buys the best defense attorneys? Yep. Is a competent defense attorney one of the lynch pins of our system (and English Common Law, natch). Yep.

This specific one got Casey Anthony off, IMHO, because the state overreached with murder one instead of a lesser charge that would have been easier and more believable to swallow.

There is a line of people waiting to dance on my grave, actually.

Anyway, the point is taken. I guess I'd say that everyone was innocent once, but that only makes the crime this person committed worse. After all, I think his victim was somebody's baby once, too.
