Boston Sports Media Watch reports on Glenn Ordway's departure from WEEI.
A couple of Staties visited David Portnoy of Barstool Sports and suggested it might be best for all concerned if he took down the nekkid photos of the Brady kid, if you know what they mean, and they think you do, so he did. At least, for today.
Meanwhile, Glenn Ordway, apparently tired of driving more people to Portnoy's site through his anti-Barstool radiothon, turned his sputtering mike and frothing listeners on Bruce Allen of Boston Sports Media Watch for daring to suggest Ordway just shut up already about the whole thing. Allen returns fire today:
Had WEEI just condemned and moved on, would this story have gotten as much attention as it did? While plenty of other media outlets did pick up on the story, there is no doubt that WEEI's incessant banging of the drum increased the visibility of the story.
I heard you state that the extended discussion of the topic had nothing to do with ratings. That is a boldface lie. Everything done at WEEI is for ratings. Are you claiming that this was some sort of selfless public service you were performing here?
David Portnoy at Barstool Sports discusses how Glenn Ordway tries to get me murdered (literally) over Brady Babygate.
The page at the center of it all (contains photo of naked kid).
When Ordway went after Universal Hub - no calls to murder, though.
As I type this, Glenn Ordway and his pals are ripping Universal Hub for the Cedric Maxwell story. Bloggers are irresponsible, unlike the "real" media - except for the Herald's Jesse Noyes who must be a blogger in disguise, because he wrote about it. Bloggers hide behind anonymity. Bloggers never get things right.
Oh, and our original post here about Maxwell was wrong because Maxwell was clearly imitating Tommy Heinsohn (thanks for playing the clip over and over, Glenny).
And now they're yelling about how we need to regulate the JerkWeekly.com's of the world (hmm, good idea for a domain)
Glenn, bite me as hard as you want with your toothless, drooling gums. Whether Maxwell was imitating Heinsohn or not, he said what he said. I'm not sure which is worse, actually: Him saying it or him thinking that's something Heinsohn would have said.
