Rick Reilly’s father in law claims he was misquoted in piece that defended the Redskins name

Rick Reilly Stands By His Article Despite Misquoting Father-In-Law

Tweet I may have just shat myself Rick Reilly used to be one of my favorite sports writers when I was a child. Key word being, child.

Open Forum: Condi Knows Football?

They know football just as much as they know about receiving The Shocker. One of the most annoying yet hilarious aspects of today’s media cycle is the “hot sports take”. It’s the best when PFTCommenter brings it strong…much less so when it is some ******* like Rick Reilly or Pete Prisco. If you’re new to this whole internet she-bang, recently many of the mainstream assholes...
