What’s worse, the fact that Ray Lewis, who killed a dude, is in the super bowl, or that some people wanted the patriots to win because they think karma of killing a dude and getting off of it would prevent him from enjoying success in his last season of football?
According to common sense/evidence, ray lewis either stabbed a dude to death, or stood there while his friends did. either way, he’s a horrible person.
but wait, the fucking patriots CHEATED and won three super bowls doing it! Shouldn’t they get punished as well?
Well, shit. mother nature is once again at odds having to choose between the lesser of two evils. that’s of course, if mother nature gave a shit about football. which she doesn’t. that won’t stop people from predicting though!
So this is Bill Simmons, who gets paid 3 million dollars a year to make predictions that he doesn’t gamble on. idiot sports fans allow him and other people to make predictions without consequence. Literally, this guy is called “The Sports Guy” and a “die hard boston fan,” yet something completely irrelevant, like the 49ers winning, freaks him out in regards to his pick that the patriots would win this game.
He does this, not because he’s actually freaked out, so he can postdict (cherry-pick so it looks like he knew, or at least sort of knew, the outcome) on his podcast tomorrow with cousin sal and that fucking moron mike lombardi. (i could write an entire thesis of his wrong and useless predictions, but he’s so boring nobody would read it)
I know what he’ll say: “I had a feeling we were in trouble…” or “It just didn’t feel right.” What he won’t say is, of course, “I was wrong. I’m actually not very good at betting or predicting anything.”
So you were 132-120 this year bill? Let me see your portfolio. let me see your betting slips. I don’t give a shit about your opinions if you’re not backing them up. I want to see you suffer or profit from them. That’s how this shit used to work, back in the day. I get paid nothing to do this site and screen grab my predictions every once in awhile. (i would do it every week, but by now people know TMF is legit as fuck, plus what could i be hiding? this site doesn’t pay me so why would i?)
He never will. Because him and every other blogger out there would rather continue doling out opinions without consequence and get paid for them. and when the opinions are wrong, they’ll bury it, or find a way to be near-right.
“BUT SO WHAT TMF? HE’S NOT HURTING ANYBODY.” – huge bill simmons fan.
Actually, he is. He is just as guilty as constructing false narratives in sports as Monti Te’o and Lance Armstrong. his false narrative is that he’s a sports fan, and that he conducts himself in a way that a sports fan would.
There are a million angry Pats fans right now. 999,999 of them don’t get paid millions of dollars for their opinions. the ONE GUY who does, wouldn’t you want him to have some confidence in his hometown team? After years of sucking Brady and Bill off? We sat through hours and hours of podcasts tailored towards the pats for you to be fucking freaked out by the fucking ravens? THEY SUCK.
Caesar, when he went to war, was on the battlefield. fuck. hannibal was ON THE FRONT LINES during any war he fought.
“Status implied you took physical risks.” – Nassim Taleb.
OK sports guy. You represent america and the pats. You are supposed to be their leader, the Napoleon, where you march into battle against the murdering, justice obstructing ravens, and tear their fucking faces off. You take the 3 million dollars you make a year and bet a million on the fucking pats. you screen grab your betting slip. That’s how confident you are. that’s how you fucking represent your team. ALL IN ON MY TEAM, I AM THE SPORTS GUY AND THAT’S WHAT A LEADER OF FANS SHOULD DO.
Oh my god, i’m late for my reservations at melisse. i need to change out of this bledsoe jersey immediately.
fuck simmons. fuck ray lewis. and fuck sports fans who let these guys run our airwaves every week. they add nothing to the sport, they only bury it in stupid, unfounded opinions without anything to back it up. them being wrong means nothing, but if they’re right, you’ll get an I TOLD YOU SO the next day.
they’re all frauds in my book. and if you see fraud and fail to report it, then you’re a fraud too.
STAY HOT AND BOTHERED BY STUPID SPORTS MEDIA.
