What does it take to become an insider?  What does Adam Schefter have to do to obtain the information that he does?  

 

Well, it's the platform and the content: Schefter has the legacy reach of ESPN, AND the ubiquitous, year-round information cycle of the most popular sport in the U.S., PLUS the exponential influence of Twitter in a time of gambling democratization/decriminalization and the proliferation of fantasy sports. Unsurprisingly, it turns out that much of Schefter's exclusive content, and therefore influence, was built upon quid pro quo practices with players, agents, and teams.

 

He's the perfect little aw-shucks ambition engine to run innocent information errands across an entertainment ecosystem riddled with the crossfire of competing interests.

talk about fake news...WAS...whats a little bit of truth got to do any of these posts ?

 

wikipedia

an American sports writer, radio host, and television analyst. He joined NFL Network and NFL.com before the 2009 season and served as an NFL insider and reporter until 2012. La Canfora appeared on NFL Total Access, NFL GameDay Morning, NFL GameDay Final, and Thursday Night Kickoff Presented by Sears. He also contributed stories and blogs to NFL.com. He replaced Adam Schefter, who left for ESPN.[1] Before joining NFL Network, he worked ten years for The Washington Post and covered the Washington Redskins for six years. Prior to the Post, he was the Detroit Red Wings beat writer for the Detroit Free Press. On June 1, 2012, La Canfora announced via Twitter that he would be leaving NFL Network on July 1, 2012, after his contract expires for CBS Sports, replacing Charley Casserly on The NFL Today pregame show on Sundays. He currently co-hosts “Inside Access with Jason La Canfora and Ken Weinman” on Baltimore’s WJZ 105.7 The Fan. [2] La Canfora currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland, with his wife Lauren and three children. La Canfora was a avid Boston Red Sox fan from 2004-2013, he is now a Baltimore Orioles fan. La Canfora has been open about his struggles with binge eating; as spoken about on his afternoon radio show.

 

Yet another reason NOT to trust this man. Even though I DETEST the Red Sox and their fans, I respect loyal fandom. Changing fan allegiances by choice, especially within the same division, is effing BONKERS.

 

This writeup suggests the Orioles are his 3rd team, at least (if he only started rooting for the Red Sox when they finally broke the curse in 2004). He must have had a different team in his younger life, right? Or maybe not, because he's that much of a spineless shill? (Those kids who pick dynasties to root for just because winning feels good.) 

 

Eff him lol.

Let's hope that one of his deepest passions is not now becoming a Moderator here on TBD!

 

 

He’s been offered a guaranteed contract with a significant signing bonus.

He always sucked as a reporter. 


Yeah pretty much.  Like the other “insiders” he seemed to be a mouthpiece for agents and NFL teams but he wasn’t very good at it as a Schefter or Glazier.  
 

He was either played, had ***** sources, or just could not decipher real stories vs. spin.  

 

His reporting did lead to comical moments.

I haven't seen as good a 'redirect' double talk statement since Russ Brandon claimed he was moving on from the Bills after accomplishing his goals. 😁

 

#Bills GM Doug Whaley said "I haven't even thought about it" if he agreed or disagreed on the Rex Ryan firing."

 

@ByBuckyGleason

: "What exactly do you do here?"

#Bills "GM" Doug Whaley: "(pause) Rex Ryan recommended Anthony Lynn be the interim coach."
