The Globe thinks you will like the Red Sox more if they embarrass Bob Kraft

The Patriots have been one of the most successful sports franchises in American history and nobody is more upset about it than John Henry. For years, we’ve seen the Globe attack the Patriots for the simple reason that they have been more successful than the Red Sox. Henry and his wife, Linda Pizzuti, will stop at nothing in order to win the PR battle with Bob Kraft and the New England Patriots.

Whether it’s attacking Brady’s charitable interests, having media members like Minihane and Drellich chased off the airwaves for alleged negative coverage, telling you how woke you would be if you stopped supporting the Pats, writing columns about how “arrogant” the local football franchise is, and countless other moves in a chess match that the Patriots don’t even know they are playing in.

What is the Globe trying to accomplish here? Other media outlets have already filed the same motion. The video is either going to be released or it isn’t. I highly doubt the Globe is going to post pornographic content on their website. It sure seems like they are just exhausting every option at their disposal to continue their one-sided battle with the Patriots. It’s pretty clear the main objective is to simply embarrass Bob Kraft here, in the most shameful way imaginable.

I, for one, hope that Kraft stops turning the other cheek in situations like this. We will see on Tuesday for the Red Sox home opener.


Mediot In Focus: Chad Finn

By now, you’re aware Chad Finn was beaten by nearly 2 weeks on the news that Accomplished Libelist John Tomase was planning to leave WEEI for NBC Sports Boston. Finn tweeted his “scoop” yesterday and published a blog entry this morning on The Globe running with Last Month’s News Tomorrow is so perfectly Globe.


Chard promoting this “news” as a scoop isn’t surprising – after all, he calls Kevin Cullen a colleague. Finn melting down in the past 24 hours and throwing a block party is completely fair since most former subscribers have blocked the Globe from their homes. What’s laughable and vile is that the Alleged Media Columnist for the region’s largest media outlet endorses, approves, and applauds the hiring and promotion of John Tomase, a “journalist” who’s guilty of journalism’s ultimate sin. Finn is so far in the tank acting as a PR agent for his buddy, he doesn’t even mention Tomase’s libelous past still spouted as the gospel truth by many mediots. Finn’s declaration of support for Tomase is predictable because Chard Finn isn’t a media columnist, he’s a media masseuse.

Can you be a media critic without offering criticism? The truth is this: Boston doesn’t have a mainstream media critic. Finn authors thinly-veiled press releases promoting local media personalities and the outlets they appear on. The Mediot Good Ship Lollypop always sails through calm waters.

Tony Mazz? He’s not the hooked-on-moronics troll you hear on 985, he’s a great guy! (Mazz? Former Globie.)

Greg Bedard hires since-outed racist/homophobe Mike Loyko and defiantly refuses to explain how or why this happened? Crickets from our intrepid mediot watchdog. Chard was probably busy sorting ’77 Topps Red Sox cards. (Almost-A-Coach Bedard? Former Globie.)

Finn’s embarrassing long-form puff piece on 985’s Michael Felger from August 2017 should have an NC-17 warning due to strong sexual content.

Finn is complicit with idiocracy in Boston media because he’s unable, unwilling, or incapable of calling bullshit when bullshit needs to be called. He’s Dale Arnold with a blog, nothing more. SJW activists influence programming and host decisions right under Chard’s zinc-coated alabaster nose, but Daddy John Henry wouldn’t approve of a deep dive into that subject, so… nothing. Large Gym Murray wishes a caller’s child dead, but Great Guy Tony Mazz vouches for Gym? No harm, no foul. I wouldn’t expect anything more from a person who calls Cleveland Marriott Points Record Holder Dan Shaughnessy a friend. Finn is a prime example of why the Boston media is nothing more than a back-slapping cesspool filled with reach-around discharge residue.


Chad Finn is having a meltdown because BJBSJ had it first (again)

Wow, great reporting, Chad. The Globe’s media columnist tweeted this out a few minutes ago. A huge scoop about one of the most noteworthy mediots in Boston.

But wait… that looks familiar, doesn’t it?

That’s because Ironhead of BJBSJournal reported the same thing almost two weeks ago.:

Lies, Lies, More Lies, and Videotape: Is Tomase On The Move?

Chad is well aware of BJBSJ, as he has searched out and blocked almost every member on twitter, including the main account @BJBSJournal. You would think somebody who has the title “Media Columnist” at the Boston Globe would want to keep track of BJBSJ since we are doing his job better than he is.

Well, apparently Chad doesn’t care much about his job at the Globe. His main concern seems to be protecting his fragile ego. (When he’s not busy being a mouthpiece for The Baseball Paper and 98.5 The Sports Hub.) According to some Twitter users, Chad is blocking people for merely mentioning that we exist. You almost have to feel bad for the guy.


Peter Gammons is still alive…

…and his tweets are epic. The Kardashians just mated with Crazy Rich Asians. Peter’s a lyrical genius! Karkrasians!!!! (Also…”Mke” Trout)

Unhappy Washburn Vows Better Outcome In 2020

Boston Globe Celtics beat writer Gary Washburn is clearly still steaming from his first round exit in the BJBSJ March Sadness tournament.

After falling to perennial powerhouse Big Gym Worry in an embarrassing rout, the long time scribe who’s name is on the tip of absolutely nobody’s tongue at any time ever has conceded that his body of work was lacking in the hot takez department and that’s what set him up for failure in the eyes of the committee.

Jim Murray wins going away. Washburn shit himself in this match up. He did!

Washburn decided to show just how serious he is about next year’s contest by dedicating himself to the takez effective immediately.

“He knows he can’t wait. The resume has to be beyond reproach, and that’s something that requires a 365 day a year grind type approach” a league source told BJBSJ under the condition of anonymity.

Washburn dropped a bomb and raised eyebrows Sunday night, by suggesting the struggling Boston Celtics commit basketball suicide by adding the shriveled corpse of Carmelo Anthony after their loss to the Houston Rockets. An impactful first step in the struggling scribbler’s attempt at redemption.

Celtic seppuku suggested by Washburn

In two years Anthony has been traded by the Knicks (!), Thunder, and Rockets, and has been released by the Hawks (!) and Bulls (!), all while being so rancid that his best friend “Bron” wont even sign him to the *Lakers (!)


“Seeding is crucial. You can’t just go out there and wing it and expect to win when we have the number of absolute psychopaths that we do in this sports media market, and he knows that” another source added.

Suggesting that a team full of players that are struggling with what their roles are add a washed up guy that can’t move and hasn’t been honest with himself about his role for years is objectively a flaming hot take.

While he took a nice step today, it’s fair to ask questions. Will this old slug be able to keep this up longterm?

Hell if I know, I’m just asking.

Old slug

Meanwhile, The March Sadness voting continues. You can have your voice heard here.


Weekly Thoughts

From the desk of Skeeter Gammons:

Who gives a shit about Kyrie Murray’s handsize? Can he throw the ball and what’s the deal with Danny Ainge keeping Steven Brad in his job?

2 years for Juelz Santana? Seems crazy when you think about the disgusting Islanders chant to Tavares. Didn’t Plaxico Burress only get a year? It’s shameful.

We as a people don’t discuss politics on Twitter enough. I am also not sure why Harper chose Philly.

That Shelly Wilder is a world class talent. Between her and Karen Nolan I feel great about the sports reporters of tomorrow. Alexa, add prunes to shopping list.

Robert Kraft is half the man that Tom Warner is. Warner built a career putting wholesome programs on TV while Kraft built his off of macaroni. Disgusting.

Andy Reid is right. Overtime should be changed and Mike Cohen is pondscum and also absolutely correct and should be trusted.

Spring Training is the greatest season in the world. It reminds me of all those forgotten souls who died in The Great Molasses Flood.




Ben Volin: Law Talking Guy

This moron again.

And then a reader brings up a salient point.

If John Henry hadn’t turned running the Boston Globe into Daddy Daughter day, maybe there would be some real standards(besides the enhanced sexual harassment policies to mitigate the effects of Brian McGrory’s intern fuckability lists). Makes you think.🤔
