ESPN NFL reporter and handicapping expert Hank Goldberg dies at 82

quote:

Goldberg had been in treatment for chronic kidney disease in recent years.

Known as Hammering Hank, Goldberg was .500 or better in 15 of 17 NFL seasons while predicting games at ESPN. He made appearances on NFL Countdown and ESPN Radio and contributed to the network's thoroughbred racing coverage

This may be the single most impressive thing I've ever read.

NFL lines are made by wizards.

Hammerin Hank won me $2200 off a $3 teifecta bet at the Cloud Computing Preakness a few years ago.


I think he was even a Miami Dolphins radio color guy back in the 60s.

A true old time handicapper legend.

He’s related to Eddie Mush from a Bronx Tale somehow.

Im surprised that he wasn't dead already TBH. He was morbidly fat 20 years ago.

I always thought him and Bill Conlin were the same guy on early 90s ESPN.

Is that spread or straight up? My guess is straight up which pretty much any moron could be .500 plus. The fact that they don’t specifically mention against the spread is telling, trying to inflate his accomplishments without telling whole truths. Not trying to rip on a guy who just passed, but that is deceptive journalism. I tried to find his pick history and couldn’t.

frick Bill Conlin. He didn’t vote Nolan Ryan into the hall of fame when he was eligible. This unwritten rule theses old arse sportswriters have about protecting the hall because the Babe and others weren’t unanimous is crazy. The fact the Marianna Rivera is the only unanimous selection is laughable.

He was also a child molester

quote:

Allegations of child molestation Edit On December 20, 2011, Conlin resigned from his sportswriting position just hours prior to the publication of allegations of child molestation. One of Conlin's accusers was his niece, Kelley Blanchet, a prosecutor in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The claims of abuse were first reported to the police in 2009 when Blanchet said she became concerned for the safety of Conlin's other young relatives.[13][14] Three more people later claimed they had been abused by Conlin.[15][16][17] The Baseball Writers Association secretary/treasurer Jack O'Connell issued a "member in good standing" statement on December 20. It said in part, "The allegations have no bearing on [Conlin's] winning the 2011 J.G. Taylor Spink Award, which was in recognition of his notable career as a baseball writer".[18] The day before the story broke, Deadspin editor A.J. Daulerio reported he had an email conversation with Conlin in which Conlin talked about suicide and criticized his accusers and Inquirer reporter Nancy Phillips.[15][19] According to Daulerio, Conlin's attorney, George Bochetto, called Daulerio in the afternoon and requested him not to post the story and said Conlin denied emailing Daulerio. The story was posted, and about three hours later the Inquirer posted its story.[19]
