Sad day. Tim Graham out at Buffalo News

Recommended Posts

I’m sure he’ll land somewhere and continue to be a snarky child on Twitter.  His piece on josh allen was a gem though

No local sports reporting?

I wonder if the Bennett rape tweet did him in?

That actually sucks. Tim was and is a very good sportswriter. People here conflate his twitter and TSW persona with his professional skills.

This right here. Had the pleasure of taking a sportswriting class taught by him (check out the podcast), and he was one of the best teachers I ever had. Master of writing.

It's hard to separate the two.

No it's not. It's easy. Do you watch a movie and consider an actor's political views as to whether you like the performance or not?

Wtf? So you want to compartmentalize, terrific, but that in no way erases him being a douche. That type of persona is what hinders many skilled/talented people from flourishing.

 

So it's not so much "people here" as it is society on a whole.

I guess charging people to read online content doesn't work!  Since I haven't been able to read the Snooze he won't be missed and he was a total prick on Twitter.

That might be true but Timmah erased any line when he went after Vic Carruci with the Bennett rape tweet.

His piece on Darryl Talley started a movement. He was instrumental in getting me in touch with the Talleys and we had a couple of nice heart-to-heart talks about how a simple column could bring real change.

On a very personal note, I am sad to see him go and wish him well always.

I actually had a huge issue with him a few years ago when he was making fun of someones child who happened to be in a guys profile picture on twitter.  Don't mess with innocent children.
