About

My name is Mike Chiari. I'm 23 years old and I graduated from Buffalo State College in four years with my bachelor's degree in journalism in the spring. I previously graduated from Depew High School in Depew, NY; a suburb of Buffalo.

While attending Buff State I wrote for the school's student-run newspaper, The Record, for two years. I wore many hats in the sports section of the paper, working as a staff writer, associate editor and editor. During that time I covered a multitude of sports, including the men's basketball and football teams.

    Hi Mike- I work for a China-based social media company, Mailman Group, that represents several sports teams, including 8 NFL teams in China. Would love to chat with you to see if we could contribute with whatever insights you would find interesting and useful.

    A ground breaking story is not allowed to be commented? Seriously? Is this the writer or Bleacher Report?

    Why are comments turned off on the Hammon Story? There is nothing controversial about it, just the 2nd female assistant coach to a NBA team. Come on BR grow a pair.

    A 23 year old writing an article on Gulbis and accusing him of being sexist? Get out and see the world kid, not only did you twist words which is a no no, you are making false accusations for personal gain. Your article should be taken down, and you should be run out of town. If BR supports your bullcrap story and others like it, then this site can go straight to hell as well. Now get in the kitchen and make me a sandwich!

    Man, I know it's not you. You're just a journalist. It's the powers that be that are trying to convince the public that "most people agree with their lifestyle" when that is simply not the case. And it's not just B/R. It's also all the major left wing media outlets. I mean, why the censorship?

    Why can't we leave comments on the brittney griner story? Probably for the same reason that we can't leave comments on the micheal sam story on the nfl page. It's because you journalist just want to throw your agenda in our face without us being able to comment. That's crap man.

    Hey Mike. Good article. However, the last few sentences in your piece states how Griner did all this 'the right way'. Yet the link to your article on CNN states that Griner 'rips her Alma Mater'. How does that fit in to your 'right way' comment?

    Also, just a few months ago Griner was praising Baylor how they handled her sexuality and that she never felt alienated. Sorry dude, but you can't have it both ways. When you try to do that your integrity takes a very, very big hit. Might want to try and consider integrity in your reporting, rather than catching a few mouse clicks.

    I wonder if Kaep will be able to litigate a suit against you and the B/R for slander or defamation if he gets anything less than a 5 year, $18mm contract renewal? I hope your parents have a lot of money otherwise you could end up paying for this for a very long time.

    It's time to take the Kaep article off the front page of BR. There is no new evidence suggesting he or any of the other players did anything wrong to the young lady involved. Splashing his mug on the article makes it look like he's the only one involved and continues to suggest he has done something wrong. My hope is that he is vindicated and comes after you and the BR for slander.
