Michael Wilbon rips NFL reporters for not getting the details of Kaepernick’s contract correct

ESPN’s Michael Wilbon ripped the multiple NFL reporters who spread the news of Colin Kaepernick’s “mega contract” without really knowing the details of the contract. Colin Kaeprnick's 6-year deal is worth $110+ million, per sources. Heavy guarantees, too. Record guarantees. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 4, 2014 For #49ers QB Colin Kaepernick: It’s a 6-year...

Michael Wilbon’s rant against Jurgen Klinsmann is wrong on every level

Jurgen Klinsmann has done some polarizing things as head coach of the US Men’s National Team in the lead up to the 2014 World Cup.  He left all-time leading goalscorer Landon Donovan off the roster.  He’s choosing to feature an armada of young players (many dual-national players that have been imported from elsewhere) that are untested at the highest level.  He has publicly...

Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon sign contract extensions with ESPN

It began in 2001. Since then, ESPN has built an entire afternoon block of original talk programming around Pardon the Interruption and has spread its debate format to other shows like Numbers Never Lie, Around the Horn, and of course, First Take. But the original has been PTI and its co-hosts, Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon. By taking the debates and discussions they had inside...

Michael Wilbon Says He Uses The Word ******, But Whites Can’t

I appreciate Wilbon’s honesty and I hope there isn’t a fake apology in his future. While on PTI, he defended Matt Barnes’ tweet saying he wouldn’t protect these niggas (his teammates) anymore. @RealMikeWilbon "I, like many others, use the n-word all day and every day so I have no problem with it…" Really @espn ? #uhavetobekidding — JLM (@jlm71) November 14,...

Michael Wilbon wore a Northwestern jersey to the Northwestern-Cal game.

The age-old argument about whether men should wear the jerseys of the teams they support reared its ugly head again at the Northwestern-Cal game, and in the ugliest way possible. Not only is the guy in the picture below wearing a Northwestern jersey, he went the extra mile and had it customized with his name on it. The gentleman in question: ESPN's most unapologetic Northwestern...

Michael Wilbon Celebrates “Dinner In L.A. Night”

As is tradition on Pardon The Interruption during the NBA Playoffs, co-host Michael Wilbon and Stat Boy Tony Realli often sign off with the proclamation “BALLLLL NIGHT!” in anticipation of multiple NBA games later in the evening. With no games scheduled Thursday night, Wilbon, who spends most of his spring in Los Angeles with the NBA Countdown crew, declared it “Dinner In L...

Wilbon: NC State wheelchair kid lacks 'common sense'

I love Pardon the Interruption.  It’s the only show on ESPN that is set to record every day on my DVR so it was disappointing to hear Michael Wilbon‘s comments [above] about the NC State wheelchair kid who stormed the court after the team’s upset victory over #1 ranked Duke over the weekend.  After a rant crushing the kid for storming the court, Wilbon asked, “my God, anybody...

Michael Wilbon Issues Apology

Michael Wilbon stirred up the sporting world, especially the D.C. sporting world earlier in the week with comments he made disparaging the D.C. "sports scene". A D.C. sports writer, Dan Steinberg and fellow ESPN'er, Bram Weinstein took particular exception to Wilbon's comments. A nice synopsis of this feud can be read here as I choose not to bog down this post...

The Michael Wilbon, Dan Steinberg Beef And Why D.C. Does Suck As A “Sports Town”

Michael Wilbon is currently in the midst of a mud-slinging beef with another DC-area writer Dan Steinberg. Read all about it (with some apparent biases) here. I can sum this whole thing up in on sentence. Wilbon said D.C. is a “terrible” sports town, while Steinberg disagrees. Magary (at Deadspin) finds Wilbon to generally act like a smug prick to the common man. I don’t personally...
