The Vol Network tonight announced the passing of legendary broadcaster John Ward.

Sigh.

Rest in peace.

Sources -- Kawhi requests Magic-Buss meeting

Ok, props on the headline.

(I don't follow the NBA really, so maybe it's been done before but it got my attention.)

It was a Monday tradition for me to read his column along with Peter King's during my Monday lunch hour.

RIP

The best tribute I think I can have for him is that for as much as he published, I know nothing about him personally.

In a time when the story is almost as much about the reporter as the reported (see, e.g., the fact that we even have a sports media thread here), he was a nice throwback to just giving us the story without a six-paragraph lead-in about what it was like for him growing up as a Dolphins fan or whatever.

Crazy story from New Orleans.

WWL Radio personality Seth Dunlap is openly gay. The WWL official media account tweeted out a gay slur at him. The thought at the time was that someone who worked for the station meant to send it from a burner account but accidently sent it from the WWL account.

Well, some investigation later, and WWL has turned the case over to the police, claiming that Dunlap sent the tweet himself in order to extort the station.

WWL Radio claims Seth Dunlap sent homophobic tweet, then demanded $1.8M, NOPD report says | Crime/Police | nola.com

and Dunlap has already passed a polygraph saying he had nothing to do with it.

John Hollinger leaves the Grizzlies front office to go back to writing and joins the Athletic. I subscribed a month ago and I think it's easily been worth it.

The Athletic is awesome. They've started video content that is awesome too. The latest with Shaq is good shit.

I got a subscription to the Athletic at the start of the NHL playoffs last spring. Almost all I read is Jets articles and I still consider it 100% worth the price. Phenomenal content.

I also love the Athletic, but worry about it's business model. I hope subscription-based online content can work in both news and sports though.
