Removing A Tattoo Won’t Get You Out Of White-Nationalist Purgatory

Removing A Tattoo Won’t Get You Out Of White-Nationalist Purgatory

Whether or not you believe

Patriots draft pick Justin Rohrwasser that he had no idea what his “Three Percenter” tattoo really meant until this weekend, and however the media has struggled to accurately describe the Three Percenters as the white nationalists that they are, it’s not really just one tattoo that’s the issue here.

Rohrwasser now says he’ll go step further than covering it up and

Land O Lakes Did Something That Football Team In D.C. Doesn’t Have the Decency To Do

Land O Lakes Did Something That Football Team In D.C. Doesn’t Have the Decency To Do

In February, Land O Lakes released a statement saying their packaging would change.

At the time, few cared.

Two months later, “Land O Lakes” is trending on twitter and sparking a national conversation around the place of Native logos.

The press release was meant to celebrate dairy farmers ahead of the company’s 100th anniversary. But it was Land O Lakes’ decision to eliminate a long-standing...

Misogyny Was Taken Early In First Round Of NFL Draft

Misogyny Was Taken Early In First Round Of NFL Draft

There is no secret there is misogyny in sports.

When the NFL Draft began last night, many fans were decked out in their favorite teams’ jerseys as they sat or stood in front of their TVs and cheered or booed at their teams’ first-round picks. Fans and media members were passionate about what they deemed as the first “real live sporting event” since professional sports were shut down...

Who Will Be The Bust Out Of This Year's QB Class?

Who Will Be The Bust Out Of This Year's QB Class?

There’s at least one every year.

Draft experts and NFL scouts spend months surveying top quarterback talent, searching for the right guy to lead their team and, eventually, become the face of the franchise.

But, as history has shown, not every marquee pick makes a mark in the NFL.

Year after year, a quarterback is picked up in the first round, only to spend the majority of his career playing...

Jalen Hurts’ Landing Spot In the NFL Draft Will Prove That Much Hasn’t Changed For Black Quarterbacks

Jalen Hurts’ Landing Spot In the NFL Draft Will Prove That Much Hasn’t Changed For Black Quarterbacks

I’ve seen this movie before, and you have, too.

It’s the story of an oftentimes overqualified black person who won’t get what he actually deserves due to the color of his skin. It’s exhausting. You’re tired of hearing/reading about it, while we’re tired of writing about/dealing with it.

And as much as we’d like to think things have changed, certain things happen to remind us that progress can...

The Chargers Move To L.A. Is Still Pathetic And Stupid, But At Least They’ll Look Good

The Chargers Move To L.A. Is Still Pathetic And Stupid, But At Least They’ll Look Good

You know when you have an exceptionally annoying fly or bee in your house/apartment, and it’s by the window but it just seems to bump into every spot of it but the opening? You’re just a mere moment from relief of being stung or just annoyed in your own house, if only this fucking creature could just find the gateway out of your house and to freedom for both of you. Of course, you’re not...

History And The Media Have Been Unfair To Randy Moss

History And The Media Have Been Unfair To Randy Moss

Randy Moss is more than just a football legend.

He’s one of the games’ most significant cultural fixtures.

Twenty-two years after being taken by the Minnesota Vikings with the 21st pick in the 1998 NFL Draft, Moss is now a part of football royalty.

The explosive touchdown plays and mind-boggling catches he perfected during his 14-year NFL career made him a legend. But his impact extends far...

Rating The New NFL Threads From Best to You Gotta Be Kidding Me

Rating The New NFL Threads From Best to You Gotta Be Kidding Me

We’ve spent a lot of time here speculating on how or if respective leagues could complete their seasons. Or on the complete failure of capitalism. But it’s getting to the end of the week, so let’s try and be more cheerful.

Let’s comment on laundry!

A few NFL teams have unveiled new jerseys for the upcoming season, whenever it will begin. And I’m always anxious to let out my inner Miranda...

How The NFL Could Exploit A Plague To Tighten Its Death Grip On Sports

How The NFL Could Exploit A Plague To Tighten Its Death Grip On Sports

The NFL is the one league that wasn’t in the middle of a season or in training camp when the coronavirus epidemic hit. And that’s mostly true worldwide, with soccer, rugby, the Olympics, tennis, golf, cricket, and however many others feeling the freeze. The NFL still gets to sit back and observe how it will all play out. Its free agency basically went off uninterrupted, and while there has...

Forget What Politicians Are Saying: Fans, League PR Officials Are Worried About Returning Too Soon

Forget What Politicians Are Saying: Fans, League PR Officials Are Worried About Returning Too Soon

Sporting a LeBron James jersey as you truck up three to four flights of escalators at Staples Center to watch the King and his crew perform — or any sports team, for that matter — will likely not happen any time soon.

In fact, a former NFL team communications person told me that teams’ PR personnel are quietly questioning whether the season will take place at all, and what an NFL game would...

Which Sports Logo Is the Best? The Votes Are In

Which Sports Logo Is the Best? The Votes Are In

The Deadspin Tournament of Logos has come to its exciting conclusion, and after ranking the primary logos of all 123 teams in the four major sports leagues in North America (

1-40 ,41-80 ,81-123 ), the winner is a team that doesn’t even exist anymore!

Of course, we knew that was going to happen when the championship round pitted two logos against each other that were added to the field as wild...

If Handshakes & High-Fives Die, What Will Players Do? We Have A Few Ideas

Eventually, the sports world will get back to normal after the COVID-19 pandemic, right along with the rest of the world.

What constitutes “normal,” though? It may be different than what we determined before—and in many ways, it should be.

But what does this mean for sports?

If Dr. Anthony Fauci has his way, one of the changes in sports would impact one of hockey’s favorite traditions:...

And Then There Were Two! As a Duo of Defunct Logos Duel For The Title

After ranking the primary logos of all 123 teams in the four major sports leagues in North America (

1-40 ,41-80 ,81-123 ), it only made sense to put them all into a bracket and have a tournament. So, that’s just what we did.

To fill out the field and get to 128 teams, five wild cards were slotted into the field: the defunct Hartford Whalers, Montreal Expos, Quebec Nordiques, Seattle Pilots,...

'If I go back to work full time, I come home to a dead husband.' Wives Of Former NFL Players Blast New NFL CBA

On Sunday, NFL free agent Eric Reid and his lawyer Ben Meiselas hosted a town hall with six wives of disabled former players to discuss how their lives have been affected by the new NFL collective bargaining agreement.

The pain shared was palpable, and the themes kept overlapping with women sharing stories of their husband’s physical and cognitive decline, their roles as 24/7 caretakers and...

Jaguars Edge Rusher Yannick Ngakoue Giving A MasterClass On Social Media Exit Strategy

Jaguars Edge Rusher Yannick Ngakoue Giving A MasterClass On Social Media Exit Strategy

Yannick Ngakoue is getting out of Jacksonville by any means necessary.

Even if that means using social media to flirt with every team who is desperate for a playmaker off the edge.

The outspoken Ngakoue has become his own marketing agent on Instagram and Twitter, teasing fans with the possibility that he could become the new face of their defense.

While his antics may seem trivial on the...

Amid Accusations Of Tampering, The NFL's CBA Mess Only Promises To Get Uglier

Amid Accusations Of Tampering, The NFL's CBA Mess Only Promises To Get Uglier

Eric Reid and his lawyers are mad.

And it seems they have reason to be.

On Monday, they sent a letter to NFLPA president DeMaurice Smith on Monday accusing the NFL and union of changing the Collective Bargaining Agreement by cutting benefits for disabled players after it had been finalized — a move that Reid’s lawyers say is unprecedented and unacceptable.

“It’s a total game-changer,” Reid’s...

The World Really Is Coming To An End: Adam Schefter Criticized The NFL

The World Really Is Coming To An End: Adam Schefter Criticized The NFL

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is widely known as an NFL shill. He rarely, if ever, criticizes the league and has even

fed from the same trough as the entity he supposedly covers objectively.

Sure, some of this is a product of ESPN’s way-too-cozy relationship with all the major sports league, vis-a-vis massive broadcasting contracts. But it also always partly seemed like Schefter’s blind eye to all the...
