Jaguars’ weekly Facebook Live press conferences are bring out the sad in the fans

This is so sad. The team does not look good. The team is losing games. Yet every week the Jaguars decide that they want to post the Monday press conference on Facebook Live. Head coach Gus Bradley has not lived up to expectations and as with Facebook Live, fans can react with emojis.

It’s sad. It’s anger. It’s comments with irrational thoughts.

The idea of Facebook Live press conferences is great. But when the team is 2-8 and looking awful, this is what you get. If they keep losing, expect more of this every Monday.

The NFL Twitter account has gone “nuts”

Nobody on the social media team realized what they were doing.

Vine was the greatest thing for sports highlights

There have been many times that I was not watching a certain game but through all the updates on my Twitter feed, something amazing just happened. What happened? I wasn’t near a TV or had no option to change the channel.

Within a minute, the highlight would be on Twitter. No nonsense, no unnecessary stuff. Vine gave me the six second highlight I needed. It looped so I could watching over and over again without having to click on anything extra.

With Vine’s death coming, I am saddened about the loss of one of the greatest things to happen to sports and the Internet. I don’t know what the next tool would be but we had something special with sports Vines. Farewell sports Vine. You were perfect for our short attention spans and our desire for immediate gratification.

Oakland A’s Instagram doesn’t like Reggie Jackson

Reggie Jackson spent a lot of good years of his Hall of Fame career in Oakland. But in his retirement, Jackson has been an ambassador for the New York Yankees and always supports them. Even whenever he comes to Oakland, he wear his Yankees gear as he remains part of the club. It’s no surprise he would but the A’s throwing shade in his direction like this was something I didn’t expect to see. It’s not like the A’s don’t acknowledge Jackson. But it’s just surprising that they would make that comment.

Watch: The essence of the Warriors’ 20-0 start in one Vine

Here is a Vine from Stephen Curry’s performance during the Warriors’ win last night, putting their record to 20-0.

Look at all the elements on display.

  • Andrew Bogut doesn’t even box out but instead jogs back on to defense immediately after the pass, knowing that Curry will make the shot.
  • Look at the dejection in Kemba Walker’s slumped shoulders when he sees Curry wide open.
  • Stephen Curry has so much time, that he checks his footing to make sure he’s shooting a three-pointer.
  • Hornets coach Steve Clifford is just disgusted with what just transpired.
  • All five Hornets are in the paint hoping for a rebound. Frank Kaminsky is looking for someone to box out but his man is already going back on defense.
  • Klay Thompson watches and nods, knowing the Warriors just made the Hornets pay with the extra possession.

The Warriors are dominating. They are demoralizing the opposition. They are 20-0. That’s their season in a six-second video.
