Holy ****, who cares about Jackie Redmond and Leo Rautins? Are you nuts really complaining about the moderation of the Jays board? There's like 12 of us posting here, and Schad is the best. Just say oh ok and move on.

Statement and Apology from Gregg Zaun Issued December 4, 2017

Without any exception whatsoever, I want to issue an absolute apology for any harm or distress which may have been caused by my comments with any female colleagues over the recent past. It has never been my intention to give offense to anyone.

I have done a lot of soul searching over the last few days and know that my ignorance of the harm caused by my language does not excuse it – for which I accept responsibility. While I am well recognized for my unfiltered criticism of others within the sports world, which has made many critics and enemies – in ignorance I allowed a similar attitude to influence all aspects of my lifestyle, causing distress for female colleagues.

For more than ten years now, I have had the privilege of working with the most amazing and talented people and I am agonized to learn that they were affected negatively by me. I apologize deeply to all my colleagues and friends for any offense. I cherish and am proud of our achievements working together.

In the past, when brought to my attention that I demonstrated poor judgement or language and gave offence, I sought to change my behaviour and apologize for any hurt caused. My remorse in the activities drawn to my attention by Rogers this week affecting unnamed individuals, is that it was never raised before and I naively believed that my language and behaviour were not considered offensive. I regret my blindness to the impact of my actions that I would have corrected at the time, rather than allowing the harm felt to continue to fester.

I have been blindsided and emotionally gutted by the allegations and will continue to be regretful.

As I look to the future, I am fortunate enough to be surrounded and supported by family, close friends, and colleagues on whom I will continue to rely and thank for their support.

Because it's a predominantly basketball focused messageboard.

I'm pretty sure people actually come to this basketball focused message board to talk TMZ stuff with middle aged dudes - that's the kind of thing that drives traffic on the internet, do you disagree?

I am here for the intellectually honest debates about Dwane Casey's abilities as a head coach. nothing more.

wow how did i not hear about this hahahaa.

i wonder what he did? in this climate it doesnt take much. anyways i appreciated his insight during jay games and the post season on sportsnet. he was a charachter but he gave a great breakdown of the game itself.

he was the first to notice darvish was tipping pitches to the stros.

I'm guessing this is very common when you are famous The issue with Zaun was that he was a creepy old looking dude and not really famous thus why would a girl take you up on that offer/

exactly i dont even understand her tweet. cool she got attention but the Dm went that far because she entertained it.

if he was josh donaldson or marcus stroman..would a 21 year old they never met go to that party? we dont know what happened in this zaun cause and folk are too quick to believe "victims".

Per her and several others who received similar DMs, they didn't entertain it at all. They just happened to follow Zaun on Twitter and he followed them back, which allowed him the ability to DM them. If allowing Gregg Zaun to follow you on Twitter constitutes entertaining an invite to an orgy, please stay far away from my PMs.

Also, no, we are not at all too quick to believe victims. Beyond creeping on women half his age, Zaun was watching hardcore porn in the Sportsnet offices, in full view of all his coworkers. Repeatedly.

The Manalyst huh? That's pretty awful, verging on Analrapist bad. He must have some pretty low IQ yes-men.

That's what Ken Reid from Sportsnet nicknamed him and always referred to him as when he introduced him and Jamie

This is probably going to be terrible, and I disagree with almost everything he says, but it might be interesting at least. And I like that the power in media is being decentralized, somewhat. As much as relying on YouTube to allow you to monetize your videos is "decentralized" I guess...

Analrapist is a joke from the show Arrested Development, where one of the characters adopts that portmanteau to describe his role as both an analyst and therapist. It is meant to highlight the cluelessness of the individual involved. It is exceptionally cringe-worthy, as is Manalyst. Particularly when you are the manly man who got fired for repeated sexual harassment.

Ugghh, let's allow this thread to wither away to the second page. The less Greg Zaun I see or hear about the better.
Nick Nurse recounting his first meeting with Kawhi:
“We could have gone forever. (Raptors management) kept knocking on the door and I was like, ‘A couple more minutes.’ Because we were really into it."
