Today marks the one year anniversary of noted libelist John Tomase’s pathetic attempt at shit stirring and fear mongering over the Jayson Tatum / Markelle Fultz trade.
Fultz reeled off 10 points while getting his shot blocked three times and heaving up an airball. Certainly cause for seller’s remorse on the part of the Celtics.
The googly-eyed weirdo went on to call the 76ers the “trendy” pick of teams nobody wants to meet in the playoffs. As we all know, those trendy picks always live up to the hype. And they certainly did, making the Maine Red Claws work very hard in a grueling war of attrition, lasting five games.
Jayson Tatum had 21 points in a half tonight. And Fultz?
Don’t worry, the upstanding Tomase apologized for his absurd work, as always.
No wait, he just pretended it never happened.
BJBSJ earlier reported Infamous Libelist John Tomase is considering leaving WEEI, but where is he headed? Idle speculation that the unrepentant turd would fit in nicely at the Globe alongside Kevin Cullen or with former boss Sean Leahy at The Athletic – Boston turned out to be just that: idle speculation. Who is considering A Devastating Leap of Logic to hire Rollo Tomase and sully their reputation?
BJBSJ has the answer: Multiple sources say John Tomase is actively seeking to join NBC Sports Boston in print and on-air roles, replacing most notably Evan Drellich and more recently Jorge Andres covering the Sox. Nothing has been finalized, but the two sides are actively engaged in conversation. Tomase’s desire to leave is a open secret within the walls at Entercom.
During an appearance on Mut & Callahan on February 12th, Drellich revealed he was let go by NBC Sports Boston, and Andres filled his role for a short time.
Drellich was let go by NBC Sports Boston in part due to unease within the Red Sox organization with his style of reporting, a source said. Another source suggested Drellich’s open support of Kirk Minihane and vocal criticism of the Red Sox on and off the field played a factor in his dismissal.
In hindsight, Orchids of Asia Day Spa Customer of the Month Bob Kraft should have considered the same stance with Tomase and the Herald after LieGate in 2008, but we’ve since learned Krafty Bob is always willing to roll over.
Drellich was last heard at Sinking Ship Dot Com expressing his inner anguish through the majesty of song.
Andres briefly covered Sox Spring Training in Fort Myers, however a source suggested Andres’ abysmal on-air performance along with his embellishment of close relationships with key Sox personnel made cutting ties quickly an easy decision.
WEEI Tankapalooza Captain Joe Zarbano along with Rob Bradford (First Mate of Sinking Ship Dot Com) has a real Sophie’s Choice: Do you attempt to keep Tomase? Or do you offer a larger role to Jermaine Wiggins, Blackmailing Pissant Alex Reimer, or Sexual Harrassment Enthusiast Marc James? When your bench is thinner than the arms of 985’s Adam Jones, these options are cost effective but without appeal. That said, considering Tomase’s continued presence and Minihane’s ouster, Quality is Not Job One at WEEI.
The effect of a Tomase departure would have a ripple affect across platforms, most notably on Mut and Callahan. Rob Bradford’s stable of Kindergarten level writers at DotAbomination will be further exposed.
It has to infuriate those who attempt to do honest work in media see an admitted, remorseless libelist such as John Tomase be offered refuge in the WEEI Witless Protection Program and immediately get promoted by his good friend Rob Bradford. A decade later, Rollo Tomase is reaching for the Mediot Holy Grail. If the fanz get the mediots they deserve, the Libelist might get this high profile gig that he craves.
As always, to paraphrase Chard Finn, Boston Mediots aren’t media, they’re a family.
A Crime Family.
Trennith is your definitive modern day outrage-profiteer. She doesn’t care about much beyond career advancement and wagging her finger on Twitter. It’s a shame that there are so many like her who hurt the causes they claim to stand for.
Trenni was well aware of the controversy surrounding Tirico and his behavior towards women but the fact is, that didn’t matter to her. Her stances aren’t based in right and wrong, they’re based on Twitter applause.
I really don’t care who it is. When a reporter, public figure – Drellich, Bill Cosby, Scott Kacsmar, Bill O’Reilly, Ron Borges, whoever – pretends the public ignorant, it’s frustrating
