Journalists cost money lads - whereas "content curators" are ten a penny.

I see the American journo Bill Simmons who was behind the Grantland US sports site has done a deal with HBO and launched a new site called "The Ringer" - I think it is split 50/50 between sports and pop culture. I'll give it a try, Grantland was good on its day.

Even the photos of those guys on Joe.ie annoy me. The lad with the big shit eating grin, and the hipster lad with the beard. And then you read the shite they spout. Jaysus.

The Ringer is basically Grantland reborn. 75% of the staff are the same. They're missing Bill Barnwell (NFL) and Zach Lowe (NBA) who ESPN made sure to keep when they shut Grantland down.

The podcasts they do are generally very good.

Basically, if you can avoid any material that Simmons himself isn't actually involved with, it's pretty decent.

Off the Ball again last night, what a radio show. This is the kind of radio our licence fee should be paying for. Billy Walsh is on tonight just voted World Coach of the year, breaks my heart to see him in the US corner.

What do folks think of IT contributors not being allowed on OTB now? Silence from Messrs Gilroy. Molloy etc deafening presumably under instructions from he who cannot be named?

Gerry Thornley not allowed on the Rugger section he's been doing for 12 years -

Yup, in reply to all the queries, I will not be on Wed Night Rugby on Off the Ball tonight. After 12 years! Gotta admit, feels strange.

While they're at it they should jettison Kevin Kilbane - a dose if ever there was one.

The ban on Irish Times staff applies to all Communicorp stations, so Today FM and Spin FM are also included.

For instance, Patrick Freyne, who regularly did the TV review segment on The Last Word, is now banned.

But Sean Moncrieff, who presents a Newstalk show, is apparently getting a new regular column in the Irish Times. I'd bet anything Newstalk won't sack him.

Fintan O'Toole has been proved absolutely right in his assessment of Newstalk management.

Expect Harvey Weinstein to feature soon on the station.
