The real shocking thing about the Carton case is that he ran a ponzi scheme and the Wilpons weren't involved in it.

That goes without saying, but say it anyway. Keep saying it. Someone might pay you.

Did we ever find out who leaked the whole Robert Lee/Virginia football story to Clay Travis?   That really started this stupid garbage fire that will probably lead to Hill getting fired.  We all know when the president makes an issue of something petty it grows and grows.  It already is out of control with the bitter  brigade of Clay, Whitlock, and Britt McHenry

There's prob no shortage of conservatives there, not necessarily front facing talent like Bob Let or Sage Steele, who would have leaked it.

Carton resigns from WFAN

That would signal he's taking a bargin to reduce time.

 

I'm also half tempted to find that Geno Smith tweet from this morning throwing shade the size of a redwood at Carton.

Somewhere in this forum - there was a brief discussion about "Last Chance U" but I can't find it so I am putting this here

Quote

Two brothers who played college football and were featured in the Netflix series "Last Chance U" have been charged in connection with a fatal stabbing in Tennessee.

Camion Patrick and Isaiah Wright are among four men charged in connection with the death of Caleb Radford on July 25. Radford, 18, was found stabbed multiple times on a street in Louisville, Tenn. On Aug. 3, Alcoa (Tenn.) police announced the arrests of two suspects: Keshawn Hopewell, 21, and Itiq Green, 28.

Wright, 20, was arrested Wednesday by Harriman (Tenn.) police. Indiana University police arrested Patrick, 22, on Wednesday in Bloomington, Ind. Wright is being held at the Blount County Justice Center in Maryville, Tenn.

IU police arrested Patrick on Wednesday. He is being held at the Monroe County Correctional Center in Bloomington, Ind. There is no information yet on an extradition hearing or date.

Patrick played wide receiver and running back at Indiana but dealt with multiple injuries, and on July 20 was granted a medical hardship waiver, ending his career but allowing him to remain on scholarship. The school suspended him Wednesday following his arrest. The one-time Tennessee recruit spent two years at East Mississippi Community College before joining Indiana, where he had six receptions and four rushes in 2016.

Wright, a running back, earned a scholarship offer from Auburn but also went to East Mississippi, site for the "Last Chance U" series. He was featured in the second edition of the series, which took place during the 2016 season. Wright and Patrick both talked about the challenges they faced as children in foster care, as their mother had left them and their father was in prison.

After a promising start to the 2016 season, Wright sustained an injury and often clashed with coach Buddy Stephens. He ended up enrolling at Division II West Georgia but left school before the 2017 season.

That Isiah Wright story sucks.  The reason that show is so fascinating is that we are catching all of those players at their tipping point.  Isiah Wright was one of those guys who you could tell didn't have much going on in his life outside of football, and if he didn't make it, there was no telling where he'd go from there.

Chances are they would have replaced her with Sage Steele because I guess she is "safer".  Whether you think the new SportsCenter at 6 show is any good (don't really care for it), imagine how much worse it would with Smith and Steele

Sage Steele is not only safe but pretty much exactly what the WH would like to see.  Good on Michael Smith though.  I always liked him.  I don't watch ESPN anymore unless it's a game though.
