The PFT family adds a new member

During our three-plus years with NBC, we’ve cobbled together a quite strong team of writers.  The family grows by one tonight.

Curtis Crabtree becomes the official West Coast reporter for this East Coast-biased site, providing updates every Monday through Thursday night from 10:00 p.m. ET until 2:00 a.m. ET.  (Or, for those of you in the Pacific zone, 7:00 p.m. through 11:00 p.m.)

The fact that he’s on the West Coast doesn’t mean he’ll only do updates for the teams to the left of the Mississippi.  But it’ll be easier for a guy in that part of the country to do updates when the rest of us are sleeping.

Curtis, a 2008 graduate of Central Washington University, lives in North Bend, Washington, 30 minutes or so from Seattle.  He covers the Seahawks, the Mariners, UW football and basketball, and other local sports for KJR.

Give him a proper PFT commenter welcome below.  In other words, call him a bunch of names and tell him that he sucks.

Or feel free to give any of the rest of us a hard time — MDS, Darin Gantt, Josh Alper, Evan Silva, or me.

  2. Gordon says: Oct 29, 2012 8:13 PM

    Aww…how cute. He looks just like you Mike!

    How much did he weigh at birth?

  3. bp888 says: Oct 29, 2012 8:16 PM

    He looks like he could play O-line for the cards or eagles

  4. brazy44 says: Oct 29, 2012 8:19 PM

    so you basically hired another guy with as little west coast football knowledge as the rest of you? what, the california workers comp laws preventing you from hiring someone in the state with 3 freakin NFL teams? nbc now owns csn which is the bay area sports affiliate. try getting someone from there.

  5. lennydpocketqb says: Oct 29, 2012 8:20 PM

    Welcome Curtis. Don’t worry about us armchair NFL experts. Tell it like it needs to be told. Good luck in the new gig.

    buck nasty said it best..

    Curtis you are Megatron and I am Optimus Prime or some other worthless insult that makes no sense!


  8. brazy44 says: Oct 29, 2012 8:21 PM

    but i give you kudos for getting a guy with the same haircut as Mark Davis. #RaiderNation

  9. coreyn23 says: Oct 29, 2012 8:22 PM

    Why does he look like his Mommy just cut his hair with a bowl over his head?

  10. sampulls says: Oct 29, 2012 8:23 PM

    Welcome from north of the border.

  11. beastmode5150 says: Oct 29, 2012 8:24 PM

    Congrats Curtis, as a KJR listener, it’s awesome. Don’t listen to these idiots, their mom hasn’t let them out of the basement.

  12. footballfan01 says: Oct 29, 2012 8:25 PM

    Florio is creating more jobs than Obama.

  13. jtdapit50 says: Oct 29, 2012 8:25 PM

    Curtis, that’s my moms name.

  14. usmutts says: Oct 29, 2012 8:27 PM

    Do you really think this is going to look good on your resume?

  15. hooockey says: Oct 29, 2012 8:28 PM

    Hey Crabtree! Your last article was terrible!

    Welcome aboard.

  16. bluefan204 says: Oct 29, 2012 8:28 PM

    Whenever we give you a hard time, it gets deleted

    (I kid, I kid….or do I?)

    Welcome Curtis!

  17. raiderapologist says: Oct 29, 2012 8:29 PM

    Don’t take too much advice from Gantt. I don’t think he watches the games.

  18. jagsfan11 says: Oct 29, 2012 8:30 PM

    Welcome. Everybody is gonna give you a hard time for a while though.

  19. DonRSD says: Oct 29, 2012 8:32 PM

    Welcome aboard.

    GO BIG BLUE!!!

  20. seatownfaithful says: Oct 29, 2012 8:33 PM

    As a fellow cwu wildcat, im smiling ear to ear… Although if some sort of hazing is to occur might i suggest a piece titled “kitna then and now” make the minimum words over 2000

  21. idontliveinmymomsbasement says: Oct 29, 2012 8:51 PM

    Cute kid!

  22. thegreatgabbert says: Oct 29, 2012 9:00 PM

    Posing in a standard West Coast football scene, I see.

  23. joecool16280 says: Oct 29, 2012 9:01 PM

    Of course this will be ignored by the PFT head honchos but as happy as I am that there is some west coast representation its sort of a half a** way to do business. Although the northwest is a beautiful place it in no way represents he west coast by any means.

    The lack of a writer from California (3 NFL teams plus Cardinals & Broncos!) pretty much feeds the bias argument that you’re so defensive about and confirms that this is a Jayvee site.

  24. hatesycophants says: Oct 29, 2012 9:03 PM

    Actually, only Silva and Gantt truly suck as writers. The rest of you are just a-holes.

  25. mancave001 says: Oct 29, 2012 9:04 PM

    You suck, Sally!

  26. sd1024 says: Oct 29, 2012 9:10 PM

    Any relation to Michael?

  27. folkcrusader says: Oct 29, 2012 9:13 PM

    Welcome Craptree, I’ll expect 300 words on The Tav vs Arnie’s written for the out-of-towner by Wednesday.

  28. taintedlombardis says: Oct 29, 2012 9:15 PM

    The writers here are second rate, especially DG and MDS. Two of the worst I have ever read. I’ve seen better tripe on fan sites. So, if you can write at least on a ninth grade level…welcome.

  29. rg3andthensome says: Oct 29, 2012 9:16 PM

    Know your roll….Write positive things about the Skins and you will be fine.

  30. thegreatgabbert says: Oct 29, 2012 9:20 PM

    Mr PFT getting to the age where he has to provide employment to all of his illicit offspring from college.

  31. thegreatgabbert says: Oct 29, 2012 9:27 PM

    Why would anyone give a hard time to that rare disease MDS, Darin The Gnat, Just Alpo, or Effin Saliva? We hold them in the utmost respect.

  32. steviemo says: Oct 29, 2012 9:30 PM

    Whoop. Dee. Doo.

  33. kattykathy says: Oct 29, 2012 9:34 PM

    Why bother posting anything?
    You and your band of holier than though censors just delete anything that you don’t agree with or dislike.

  34. nyyjetsknicks says: Oct 29, 2012 9:37 PM

    Don’t make any post about Tebow!

  35. thefiesty1 says: Oct 29, 2012 9:38 PM

    Good luck with this bunch of yahoos.

  36. AlanSaysYo says: Oct 29, 2012 9:40 PM

    Well hello there, chuckles. The PFT tradition of faces fit for radio continues.

  37. yetimonster says: Oct 29, 2012 10:09 PM

    Woof! Fresh meat for the grinder!

  38. rajbais says: Oct 29, 2012 10:11 PM

    Welcome! We can finally get some West Coast perspective even though I live in the Midwest.

  39. myschwartzisbiggerthenyours says: Oct 29, 2012 10:11 PM

    Drew Brees wants an explanation.

  40. duncanthecat says: Oct 29, 2012 10:12 PM

    Welcome, and I hope the gig pays enough for you to pay a pro for your haircuts.

  41. cuda1234 says: Oct 29, 2012 10:15 PM

    But what does he think of Tim Tebow? Isn’t that all that matters on this site?

  42. bigred12 says: Oct 29, 2012 10:16 PM

    I hate him already.

  43. selmonfan63 says: Oct 29, 2012 10:19 PM

    Florio you are really signing up folks with serious reporting cred. Gantt from the Rock Hill Gazette and now this dude from KJR.

    Maybe you should increase the pay.

  44. JMB says: Oct 29, 2012 10:29 PM

    Aww c’mon Florio… Give yourself some credit. You’re swell.

  45. snarf1888 says: Oct 29, 2012 10:30 PM

    curtis you look a little like jay cutler, sorry. that is all

  46. PhantomsToenail says: Oct 29, 2012 10:32 PM

    Welcome!…nice hat head by the way

  47. humboldt420 says: Oct 29, 2012 10:36 PM

    Welcome aboard Curtis.

    Hope you’re better than the Central Washington Wildcats football team this season.

    They lost to then winless Azusa Pacific to shake up the Great North West Athletic Conference standings.

    Then I watched them throw away the GNAC title up here at the Redwood Bowl against Humboldt State in a 14-10 loss.

  48. nonetruerthanblue says: Oct 29, 2012 10:38 PM

    Pressure’s on! Good writers in this group

  49. 4thqtrsaint says: Oct 29, 2012 10:38 PM

    When is your first bounty-related article?

  50. 4thqtrsaint says: Oct 29, 2012 10:39 PM

    Drew Brees demands a bounty-gate story!

  51. amgdds says: Oct 29, 2012 10:51 PM

    Cardio bro.

  52. jimmyhaffa says: Oct 29, 2012 10:52 PM

    Dear god. Jay Cutler has a brother.

  53. gromit45 says: Oct 29, 2012 11:21 PM

    Woohoo! Finally some much needed West Coast bias!!!

  54. ghostofgilchrist says: Oct 30, 2012 12:07 AM

    Has he been seen in the same room with Alex Van Pelt?

  55. realnflmaster says: Oct 30, 2012 12:40 AM

    Who wins an eating contest? Andy Reid or this guy?

  56. ieatchickens says: Oct 30, 2012 12:52 AM

    I guess John Boy is not the only writer to come from Walton’s Mountain. Welcome Jim Bob!

  57. webothlose says: Oct 30, 2012 1:04 AM

    Does his mom cut his hair?

  58. randallflagg52 says: Oct 30, 2012 1:06 AM

    Maybe Crabtree can provide us all with Skyrim, Star Trek and World of Warcraft metaphors in his articles?

  59. joetoronto says: Oct 30, 2012 4:52 AM

    Great, another delusional latte drinking Seahawks fan.

  60. mistrezzrachael says: Oct 30, 2012 7:32 AM

    Just what we need…more dumb comments [ we should be 8-0] from Pete the poodle.

    Tell Petey he’d look awesome in a cheerleaders uniform

  61. anactualnflowner says: Oct 30, 2012 8:52 AM

    These guys are right… this guy looks like the offspring of Jay Cutler and Jon Kitna.
