Just like coach's recruiting practices, I'd like to think that we are choosy in what reaches our open court or forum.
We glean, sift, optate, or (my favorite) winnow. (If Dillon can use the dictionary, I can summon the thesaurus.)
(Full disclosure: I've never, to my knowledge, used "winnow" in speech or writing, but I'll try in the coming season.)
Remember, the "Great American Blog Post" is still waiting to be written. I'm betting on the posters here. (I still can't get "she turns to Coach McGraw and mouths ‘Boley, Schmoley'" out of my mind.)
(Yes, you can tell this is slow time in women's hoops!)
