Anyone else see this in his mailbag?
Ask Reiss: Deep thoughts after the Seymour deal - Boston.com
Reiss heads to ESPNBoston.com .
what a loss for the Globe and all of us!
Thanks to Mike for the great work at the Globe and hear is to him carrying the ESPNBoston site.
I just hope his new site has a blog like this for him and I hope it loads on my phone as quick because I had Reiss blog as my homepage and I could get pats info in 2 clicks on my phone.
anyone check out the new site yet???
edit: just went there and it said coming soon....well they better get reiss up quick or we will all be tweaking for a fix.
......luck to you,mikey....hope you make boatloads of dough,you deserve it.
Still has the coming soon banner.........
such a sad day
Congrats again to Mike Reiss!! I think he's at the Globe for a few more days..maybe even a chat in 2 days..but I am hoping he can really help ESPN-Boston get a lot better!! There is a large opportunity and maybe it can be done!! Good luck Mike!!
Considering the situation at the Globe, and the uncertain financial future it is facing, even WITH a new owner (and maybe especially WITH the new owners) I think that Mike is making a very good move.
If he expands beyond the Pats beat, it's a net loss for us. But congrats to him!
Nope, just the Globe.
We still have him. He'll be at ESPN Boston.
Wait! Reiss is leaving the Globe. Call The Yesterday News Service! I got them a huge scoop!
Sorry, had to do it. It has been known for a week or so that he is leaving the Globe for ESPN Boston. He will still be on WBZ TV and WBZ radio for the games (and apparently weekends).
I just heard on ESPN that Tedy is now going to be an analyst for them, including ESPN Boston. Sorry if this has been posted already; didn't see that it had, and apparently I don't have enough posts to start a new thread
I would assume it will be something like this-
CHICAGO Sports Teams, Scores, Stats, News, Standings, Rumors - ESPN Chicago
And Mike will be a columnist.
No problem, Austin, we've got it here:
Bruschi will be great on TV - - his press conference last week was a very impressive tryout.
This guy has been a breathe of fresh air simply because he wasn't full of negativity and didn't make stuff up. Really, the bar is pretty low for Patriots reporters.
He's been good as a reporter, but never took any bold steps into analysis. He's always brought a vanilla yet thorough summary of what's happening with the team, but never rendered an opinion with much risk to it. It will be interesting to see if he does that in the new job.
One really has to wonder whether or not you've actually read the Mail Blogs that Reiss has done. There have been PLENTY of times he's gone and given the fans his opinion on what he saw. What Reiss didn't do was put of wild speculative haphazard garbage and try to sensationalize things.
Who are you to determine what opinion of Reiss does or doesn't have much risk to it??? Hell, Why would he want to become like Ron Borges, Bob Ryan, Dan Shaughnessy, or John Tomase... who wildly speculate without much support.
Also, something you clearly don't consider is that Reiss has a lot of contacts with the Patriots. He typically gets the news before others. He has shown himself to be very mindful of that and careful not to abuse the privilege.
Can we get a title change. Reiss hasn't called it quits.. The OP clearly didn't understand/know about Reiss moving to ESPN Boston..
Re: Reiss calls it quits
I generally agree. He was more meat and potatoes than opinion leader which is something I like. Let's just hope the folks at ESPN don't brain wash him into believing every little thing can be turned into a major controversy and drama because they do that a lot over there. The Evil Empire is a world where accuracy and facts are secondary, hype and sensationalism take the front seat.
And please tone down the bullying of the past two posts. It's not necessary. You can make your points without the vitriol.
Make a ton of money, as said. A true reporter, dying breed. Actually thinks before he writes.
I'm not optimistic about BSPN. It's an entertainment network.
Here's the real question : do we need to pay a lame monthly fee (like ESPN insider) to get his info and will he keep tweeting or blogging ?
(cue the - "Your name is blue, why won't you contribute here ?" crowd)
hehe (10 char.)
I didn't see any bullying, just statements of fact????????? T
I just reread the posts, and I agree. They weren't really bullying at all. My Bad. Apologies to DaBruinz.
Yes, I read them regularly. He does give his opinion, they are just very low on interpretation and high on observation. He is different from others in that regard. And my opinions of this are just as valid as are those of anyone else.
I did consider that Reiss has a lot of contacts inside the Patriots. That's part of what drives his relative conservatism.
I don't see why you are so worked up about my thoughts. I wasn't being critical, just noting his style and the difference between him and most of his peers. And wondering out loud if the new employer would influence this.
While I certainly couldn't care less about it, the mismatch in degree of forcefullness between my unemotional post, and the respondent's intense and critical post, would be considered to be bullying under most clinical definitions of the term.
Has there been any speculation that ESPN lost viewers/clickers in Boston/Patriots Nation over its biased handling of Spygate in particular and its perceived anti-Pats bias in general and is hiring Reiss to rebuild its credibility in our market?
It would be great if that were the case but ESPN has been so tone deaf for so long it is hard to imagine. Perhaps the local folks are given enough authority to actually do something like this.
You always took the high road which is a road less traveled in New England sports reporting. I will miss you at the globe.
