And Now, Commenters Complain About the Lack of This Weekend’s Headlines by Bringing You This Weekend’s Headlines (!)

Screen Shot 2013-01-28 at 9.23.34 AM
Lots of good stuff this weekend, including our coverage of LeSean McCoy suffering one of the greatest athlete social media mishaps of all-time. Here's a roundup of the rest of the stuff via angry commenters:

From “Deezy”:

It's sad that this is the only type of crap that will get you to "write" 3 stories before noon on a Sunday."


From “Chris Curtis”:

You are an unethical, immoral, jackass exploiting the private problems of people for your own benefit. You hold yourself out as a "journalist". You are no such thing.”

It stopped being private the minute McCoy asked his 172k followers to tell his Baby Mama that she was worthless.


From “Chris Curtis” again:

Wrong—-you took an argument with unsubstantiated facts (and even if they are factual, matters not) and made it into a "news story" that most people would never have known about except you chose to profit from it.

I wish I could just press the “profit” button. Anyone have one of those?


From “Chris Curtis” again again:

its not "irresponsible". It was intentional and nothing but unethical, immoral "gutter journalism" (and I hate even using the word "Journalism").


From “Dave”:

Jesus this site is extremely racist. And I don't mean the moron posters. Seems like this guy Kyle LOVES to jump all over anything negative involving black athletes. I can't believe some of media around this city even associates with him. Wow.

Ilya Bryzgalov thinks so too.


From “ThePhillyFlash”:

I have to say I'm disappointed in Kyle. With both the Flyers and Sixers having notched big wins on Saturday, for him to have fixated on this nonsense with McCoy instead was, in my mind, pathetic. I'm sure he figures that all this TMZ/tabloid stuff gets him more page views than plain old sport stories, I understand that, but when is enough enough? I like to think I'm being patient with this blog, but it's running short.

Choose the most interesting. And remember, you only get one if you want to have any semblance of a weekend:

The 18-25 Sixers beat the Knicks. Parade is Tuesday at 10 a.m.

The Flyers beat an awful Panthers team in front of 22 Floridians but then pooped the bed in Tampa.

LeSean McCoy tweeted vile things about the mother of his child to nearly 200,000 people, and was accused of having Herpes and “eating pussy to get [himself] off of child support.”


From “Asshole”:

A hat trick, a 7-1 blowout (with OUTSTANDING goaltending), a 4 goal loss that illustrated just how important Bryz is, the return of Briere, a 35 point game from Jrue in a thrashing of rival division leaders, and Kyle decides to devote all his time to this lazy, irrelevant, retarded trash story that only his racist commenters care about. This site went from unique, witty and original to trashy, lazy, and thoughtless. It reeks of yellow journalism and shock jock race baiting.

You’re right– unique, witty and original would have been writing 300 words about Danny Briere feeling “great” about getting back onto the ice, and another 300 about Jrue Holiday celebrating his first All-Star selection with a great game. Those would have been the unique stories.


From “This site needs jam”:

Just imagine how much better this site could be if you put forth this much effort into actually talking about sports

My eighth grade teacher said something similar when she enrolled me in handwriting classes, because it’s something I’ll “really need one day.”


From “mickcloud”:

Meanwhile, Knuble signs, Briere returns, and without Hartnell or Meszaros, the Flyers destroyed the Panthers 7-1 last night in Sunrise. And this is the lead story on the "preeminent Philly sports blog"… first time I've been disappointed in CB. The sad thing is, this probably gets more clicks than the Flyers… because half-wits love this shit.


From “Shawn”:

Temple has received top 25 votes, but have not cracked the top 25 yet. He's obviously biased, since he went there, but should still report on Temple like he did for 'Nova. When LaSalle and 'Nova beat top ranked teams they got a post, but Temple got no love for their upset against Syracuse. At least we all can agree on one thing, Villanova has the ugliest students in the Big 5.

I DISAGREE! [Have you ever been on UPenn’s campus?]


From “Moop”:

Only hear about Nova when it's convenient to talk about them. Where is the article about how bad Bryzgalov was last night?

OK, OK– here goes!

The Flyers beat the awful Panthers 7-1 on Saturday night thanks in part to a really strong effort from Ilya Bryzgalov, who turned away five shots from Tomas Fleischmann and Drew Shore, respectively. All of our goaltending problems are solved. 

The Sixers beat the Knicks on Saturday night in a game that about 200 people watched to pull within seven games of .500. Jrue Holiday, impressively, scored 35 points, and we should celebrate the fact that the Sixers haven’t had a 35-point scorer since six years ago, when Willie Green did it. His career really took off after that, too. Tonight the Sixers will take on the powerhouse Memphis Grizzlies. 

Last night, the Flyers didn’t show up and they started a beer league goalie, who, for reasons unbeknownst to anyone, has a two-year contract with a professional team. We’re putting about as much effort into the coverage as the Flyers did the game:_______________ penalty________________.

Villanova beat Louisville and Syracuse last week, teams considered no better than their equals for much of the past decade. And La Salle beat Butler and VCU– Mid-Majors experiencing a recent run of overachievement. Snark aside, all four of those wins were awesome and college basketball is easily the most exciting thing going on in Philly sports right now.

Drive carefully out there.

  1. These stiff commenters can always go to & if they want to read about the sixers & flyers

  2. I would love to sucker punch chris Curtis in the back of the head for being such a pussy. Teach him a lesson

  3. Lol, still going on about what the player of an off season sport said on Twitter?
    Commenters bashing this site are the only thing keeping it alive.

  4. Can’t wait for baseball season so I can read angry comments about why Kyle shouldn’t bash Werth and Harper.

  5. Exactly, Lex. I don’t think Kyle claims to be a “journalist” (apologies if I’m wrong). I go to real news sites for news, and I come here for the low-down on Shady’s baby mama drama. Again, no offense to Kyle, but if people are looking to him rather than Tim Panaccio and Frank Seravalli for their Flyers news and analysis, then they’re foolish.

  6. Deadspin already does a segment each week with reader hate mail and their smart ass responses. You are better than that. Don’t turn this site into one of these I am smarter than my readers sites. I don’t need a blog to treat me like Howard Eskin treats his listeners. Just keep doing what you are doing.

  7. Don’t forget, gay porn quizzo at Woodys tomorrow night. First prize, a fisting from yours truly

  8. Yo yo yo can we get an update on eat dat pussy. What he thinks about chip balls and shady eatin pussy so he dont have to pay da bitty $$$$$$

  9. I love your blog. Even though I might disagree with you sometimes, and post interesting tidbits about myself and my twin on other occasions, I do respect the salacious news stories you bring to us. Keep up the good work CB. You’ve got me firm.

  10. I agree with the posters above. If I wanted an in depth break down of the games, I would go to CSN. I come here for a “different take” on the goings on in Philadelphia sports. I personally really enjoyed the stories about Baby Mama Drama.
    As for the Flyers. One great game, followed by one total stinker. Keep that up..and this season will be even shorter than expected.
    As for the Sixers. It was a great win against the Knicks. The Sixers are theoretically only 2 games back of the Celts (who just lost Rondo) and there is talk about Bynum coming back around the All Star Break. I guess there is reason to get VERY midly excited about that. The Jrue/Green comparison is a bit unfair though, Jrue can ball (consistently) and has nearly broken the 35 point barrier a few times. I think the biggest story about that Sixers game though is that it seemed as though roughly 75% of those in attendence were Knicks fans. That shit pisses me off.

  11. Kyles starting to lose his shit..Awesome! Just quit already! Everyone hates you..the only reason you get site views is for people to troll you because you fucking blow. And youre racist as fuck.

  12. I woke up Sunday morning, scrolled through Twitter, saw Kyle’s tweet about McCoy and clicked it – having not heard what happened.
    Had Kyle done a post on the Flyers or Sixers game from Saturday night, I’d have kept scrolling through my Twitter timeline.
    Simple as that, folks. Move along.

  13. Kyle, haters gonna hate….Philly sports are boring right now and shady gave us all a gift and a laugh over the weekend. Keep doing what you do. I agree with what others said…if I wanted to know exactly what happened in every game that I missed this weekend I could read the box scores…I come to this blog for funny sports related info and opinions….ok enough…I just showed Kyle more defense than the flyers have shown all season…

  14. Nothing quite screams “My ass hurts” like this blog post. You’ve been letting us get to you, and it’s pretty damn fun to watch.

  15. I kid, I kid. I’m honored. Never expected to be part of a feature on Philly’s favorite Gossip blog.

  16. Here is what I don’t get: everyone says the blog should report about the Sixers and flyers games they ALREADY know about, as evidenced by the requests to write about the Sixers and Flyers wins, Jrue’s big game, Briere’s return, etc, etc. Doesnt make any sense. If you already know why do you want Kyle to report on it? Silliness.

  17. i enjoy the stupidity of people. I go to news sites for news, and blogs for general commentary. Thought people were smarter than that.
    Go to ESPN if you want to read 3 paragraphs about a game. Or just watch the game so you already know everything.

  18. Lol it’s going to be pretty amusing when Kyle has to get a real job and this site haunts him for about 20 years.

  19. I don’t care too much about this site either way, but Kyle seems like a egotistical cock, and I think it’d be funny if someone beat the crap out of him and then sent the video to Deadspin.

  20. I hear they call him “Shady” McCoy because he doesn’t tell the girls about his herpe infested penis. LOL LOL LOL!!!

  21. @Kyle’s future black boss
    Wont happen. He’ll just change the site from a half page ad to a full page one and live off stray page views.

  22. Kyle I’m upset that Lesean McCoy is more relevant than me posting a picture of myself in underwear. I digress. XOXO

  23. hey guys, dont troll my site.
    hey look carts took a shit and didnt wipe, everyone read about it.
    Shady has women problems, everyone read !!!!!!!
    Look everyone Andrew Bynum bought a case of beer and lets trash him every week, even though he will be back soon (maybe even before the all star break), but that isn’t news… what is news is that he took a picture with a white girl, o and he doesnt have insurance !!!
    let’s point out the misery in every athletes life, but dont let someone troll my site !!!!!!
    trolling = gives you the page views you are hoping for… live with it

  24. What’s racist about pointing out the cgain of events? If members of shady’s race find it embarrassing how he and his “BM” speak, act etc- don’t shoot the messenger. Be ashamed instead of how common “Babby Momma Drama” is in your culture and how sad it is that its widely accepted as just part of life. This blog’s great- stop your whining.

  25. Same as most everyone else. I come here for the Philly sports news that I won’t get from CSN or ESPN, ect. There’s no such thing as a one stop shop of a sports site that has everything. People just love to have something to cry about. Most likely because they are miserable people. Keep it up, Kyle… Just don’t start being condescending please. Some of us are assholes but most of us are not idiots.

  26. this is why America blows, not Kyle’s work, but the terrible commenters.
    They hate this site so much that they keep visiting it, which makes CB more popular, and puts steak on his dinner plate (ad money). Because you keep coming back and leaving your “witty moving” (aka pathetic) comments, he is ordering prime rib instead of a burger tonight. You guys are idiots.
    Keep up the good work, we don’t need another ESPN or CSNPhilly, or even The700Level website. Go there instead you twats.

  27. Kyle’s fanboys are entertaining. It’s just as fun watching them get riled up and they don’t understand that.

  28. What Kyle won’t tell you is that he loves people commenting like that. It creates the illusion of pageviews that you can show to potential advertisers and say “hey look I got 10,000 page views” “pay me XXXX”. So you’re just lining his pockets. If you really hate the site, stop coming to it.
