Things Got Heated On Outside The Lines Today, And This Man Called Merril Hoge “Pathetic”
The hot-button issue of the moment is head trauma in football, and it's being given an entire week's worth of attention from ESPN's Outside the Lines. Today, the issue's polarizing nature was once again on display, causing men on TV to freak the fuck out on each other.
Matt Chaney is author of Spiral of Denial, a 2009 book about performance-enhancing drugs in football -- and now, apparently, a champion of the eradication of football. Merril Hoge is ESPN's thickly-knotted factor back. When you lock the two of them in tiny, pixelated boxes, you get charges of heresy and accusations of amazing patheticness. God bless that poor man in the middle.
The best part of all this? When Giants lineman Osi Umenyiora is asked to weigh in by phone, and makes more sense than anyone despite being dropped right smack in the middle of the segment's most awkward moment.
