It's sad that this guy is allowed to post like this. It devalues the standard and the quality of the site. Does he have pictures on someone? Maybe a relative that someone feels sorry for?

They’re awful at providing content. The other day sage Steele asked booger if Miami should medical redshirt tua. Reminded me to not watch this channel.

That's ESPN's fault for trying to turn every single draftee into a Tom Rinaldi story.
