    The first word of your McNabb/Cutler/Romo article has a typo. It should be "In what appears," not "It what appears."

    Hi Jake, on your Steven Adams article you state that the haka is an intimidation dance. As someone from New Zealand I thought I'd take the time to tell you it is not meant to intimidate, it originates Maori tribal warfare and is more of a challenge than an intimidation attempt. It has also come to be used in modern times before national sporting events as a way to challenge the other team and to fire up the New Zealand team. As well as this usage the haka has become probably the best known symbol of Maori (the indigenous people of New Zealand) culture and is used to show respect and congratulate New Zealander's who have achieved highly in any field. Finally the haka is a recognition of the subject's (in this case team USA's) mana (a Maori concept used to describe a person's standing in the community and social/spiritual gravitas). It is therefore far more than an attempt to intimidate and it would be wonderful if you would make some changes to that article to recognise the importance of the Haka to Maori culture and it's varied meanings and uses in New Zealand.

    Thanks and I hope you read this and adjust your piece accordingly.

    Hey man. I don't know if that article about Mayweather jumping rope was a joke. But, if it wasn't a joke, then I have no idea what to say other than I must be the most athletic person on the planet. Not to mention that it was a terrible article. How much time did you honestly spend on it? Honestly? Copied a video link (1 second). Wrote 89 words (1 minute). 1 minute and 1 second. WTF JAKE!? You can do better than that.

    Jake, either you or Bleacher Report have no guts for not allowing comments to be left on your article. Who gets to decide?

    Thanks for the article about my son and DeAngleo's glove. I still don't think he has taken it off his hand
