Analysis / Bias
In review, Sports Pickle publishes not so serious real sports stories such as this The Worst Performances at the 2018 NFL Combine as well as straight satire such as this Augusta National installs artificial turf to save on mowing costs. Although the website does not openly disclaim they are satire they do indicate they are an entertainment website.
