"This is one of the most despicable things I can ever think of."
Not much of an imagination or sense of history.
I'd sure hope we'd all think less of the voters if votes were being openly sold and none of the other voters gave a ####. What the hell would that say???
It includes a nice quote from Madden about his esteemed colleague Bill Conlin.
From July, 2011. Which was six months before the allegations against Conlin were first made public.
So what? You think he hasn't heard about what Conlin did yet? Or did he write and file today's column three years ago, before any of the acts he's describing had actually occurred, purely on spec?
If one of my close professional colleagues were outed as a serial child rapist, I'd like to believe that would help define the far edges of my moral spectrum going forward. I guess Madden feels differently.
In the battle of Madden vs. Deadspin, I'll take meteor
No, the article with the quote from Madden about Conlin, which wasn't written by Madden, was printed in July 2011. The quote isn't in the article or audio transcript from anything released today.
Also amusing: Madden, the guy who sees a writer selling his Hall of Fame vote as "one of the most despicable things [he] can think of," has also argued in favor of the Hall admitting Pete Rose, who broke baseball's most fundamental rule.
Since Tommy Craggs has taken over editing duties I think Deadspin has, well, become very good. I know there's a lot of anti-deadspin sentiment here but I'd imagine a lot of that is connected to the Leitch-Daulerio eras.
