Title: Area Man Tells ESPN to Eff Off

Quick point before I get to the humorous content: The "prestige" media has prestige only because people confer that prestige on it. Stop conceding that prestige, and they're not prestigious any longer.

A lot of people take pics and videos and post them. The major networks then ask -- for free -- for rights to republish the photos or videos.

Most say yes, just because it's "prestigious" to have a media company use your work (for free!) so long as they give you some kind of minor credit at the bottom of the page.

Maybe people should start saying "No," or "Yes, if you pay me a lot of money, assholes."

Enter Abdul, who took this amusing photo of a guy trying to rev up the runners at the Boston Marathon:
this guy is at the #BostonMarathon right now motivating the runners. i love boston. pic.twitter.com/jOT6kmRJhK

ESPN immediately begged him to let them use his picture -- for free!, but with attribution.
@Advil Hello. May ESPN have permission to use this photo on all platforms with a courtesy?— ESPNAssignmentDesk (@ESPNAssignDesk) April 17, 2017

With a "courtesy"? Oh man. What dicks. They really think The Commoners will just fall over themselves to make ESPN revenue, in exchange for "a courtesy."

Enter Abdul, or as I call him, the Hero of a New Media Age.
@ESPNAssignDesk after the witch hunt ESPN led against tom brady? absolutely the fuck not. in fact block me right now. go fuck yourselves.— abdul 🚀 (@Advil) April 17, 2017

He then went on to permit other outlets to use his photo -- just not ESPN.
@SBNation i don't give a shit just don't let @espn use it those fuckers led a witch hunt against tom brady— abdul 🚀 (@Advil) April 17, 2017

Then he continued letting people not called "ESPN" use it, but realized he could make demands:
@SPORTS_Guru88 yea sure but only on the condition that that you reference me as “Abdul Dremali: super famous scientist”— abdul 🚀 (@Advil) April 17, 2017

Sports Center did wind up blocking him:

Obviously, this super famous scientist did not tell ESPN to fuck off out of what we'd call a political motive (though he was talking about bias, I guess).

But for whatever reason, he told the Corporate Media that he was not impressed by their prestige, he did not covet their "courtesy," and they could not have an inch of his aid.

And that's good.

This guy should get a Fanboi Of The Year award. I bet the Patriots will reach out to reward him.(2 images)

In a followup, this Abdul had a piece on HuffPo and a bit on Comedy Central last night.

Okay, he's had his 15 minutes of fame as the biggest Brady fanboi ever.
