Announcing Outkick VIP

Outkick the Coverage - Announcing Outkick VIP

Just over six years ago Outkick the Coverage launched as an independent website. I had no idea what would happen, but I was cautiously optimistic things would go well enough that I might be able to make $100k a year off it one day. Six years later Outkick has a national Fox Sports Radio show… Read more »

Game of Thrones Season Seven, Episode 6

Outkick the Coverage - Game of Thrones Season Seven, Episode 6

I’m a weak man, what can I say? The moment news broke that HBO had accidentally aired Game of Thrones Season Seven, Episode 6 on Spanish HBO — seriously, what’s the punishment for the CEO of HBO Spain, he has to get Nedd Stark’ed in the HBO parking lot, right? — I had to watch.… Read more »

Protesters Demand WWE Boot Trump from Company Hall of Fame

Outkick the Coverage - Protesters Demand WWE Boot Trump from Company Hall of Fame

Waking up this morning to stories of Trump protesters outside Barclays Center in Brooklyn wasn’t particularly strange, because at this stage in the game, Trump protesters anywhere, whether for or against, barely furrows my brow. People love to get signs, they love to stand together, and they love to plan trips to various independent coffee… Read more »

Marvel’s The Defenders is Dark, But Fun

Outkick the Coverage - Marvel’s The Defenders is Dark, But Fun

I had to watch the first two episodes of Netflix’s The Defenders, which hit the streaming service today, twice. Why? Because I fell asleep during both initial viewings. Whoa, that’s clearly not a good sign. That’s what I thought, but by the end of the fourth episode, which was the final hour Marvel and Netflix… Read more »

AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire: Still a Killer App

Outkick the Coverage - AMC’s Halt and Catch Fire: Still a Killer App

So many examples exist within the realm of television of overlooked shows or underappreciated properties. Often, an audience dissipates after a series starts slow, because we live in a “What have you done for me lately” culture, as opposed to a long game. Patience remains a virtue, but in TV, if you’re not really good…really… Read more »

Yes, I’ve Turned Down TV Show(s)

Outkick the Coverage - Yes, I’ve Turned Down TV Show(s)

Last month the New York Daily News ran a story saying I’d turned down my own TV show on FS1. I wasn’t the source for this story, but the writer, Bob Raissman, a man I’d never talked to before, called me while I was touring the beaches of Normandy with my family. I declined all comment… Read more »

JMart’s Health Journey

Outkick the Coverage - JMart’s Health Journey

(The above photos were taken in 2015 at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, and four weeks ago in Nashville. In February of this year, I was bigger than in the photo on the left. That’s for clarification purposes.) Many people have either emailed me at jmartclone@gmail.com or DMed me @JMartOutkick about my health changes,… Read more »

All That and a Bag of Mail

Outkick the Coverage - All That and a Bag of Mail

I’m currently in the air flying to Las Vegas with my fingers crossed that the Southwest Wifi is going to hold up and allow me to post the mailbag. Well, that, and that North Korea doesn’t decide to fire a missile at Las Vegas over the weekend and wipe me out. (Spoiler, the Southwest wifi… Read more »

Clay Travis Is An Idiot

Outkick the Coverage - Clay Travis Is An Idiot

By Fred Segal, aka Old Takes Exposed on Twitter In case you haven’t heard, Clay Travis and Outkick the Coverage are “dominating” in “all respects.” The full-fledged domination extends nationwide, on Periscope, radio, inpolitics, here, there, everywhere.  You name the place, Outkick is murdering the competition.  Also, did you know that Clay is a multi-millionaire, with a mansion, beach house, three sons… Read more »

Outkick the Coverage - Colin Kaepernick Disappears If He’s Employed

As we continue the long summer of Colin Kaepernick’s football unemployment and MSESPN employees — joined by their left wing sports media allies at FS1, NBC, and CBS — continue to hold candlelight vigils outside ESPN offices every night begging for him to get a job — I’ve got an interesting question for you —… Read more »

Game of Thrones Season Seven, Episode 4

Outkick the Coverage - Game of Thrones Season Seven, Episode 4

Confession: once this episode leaked online I couldn’t resist watching it early from my Costa Rican hotel room. But I watched it again with my wife tonight and I have to tell you, it was just as good the second time as the first time that I watched it. Simply stupendous. Here was my post-show… Read more »

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Review

Outkick the Coverage - Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Review

If you’re reading this, it’s not outlandish to assume you’re already familiar with the Wet Hot American Summer phenomenon. Originally it was a 2001 cult classic about a Maine summer camp, and it’s always been known for the quality of its cast more than the quality of its script. This is a project that’s very… Read more »
