I hate.....Colin Cowherd........Who's more annoying at his job? Jim Rome?........or...........Bill O'Reilly?........or........Colin Cowherd? Who is more of a cancer to his respective trade? Terrell Owens?......or......Colin Cowherd?........or Bill O'Reilly?........

My pauses......Are they more annoying than Rome's? Why?........Can Duke win it all?.......Where does Vince Young go to?


God I hate "The Herd". All that guy does is take endless pauses and throw out question upon question.
2006-03-23 11:40:52 AM  
Whose blog is this? Out yourself, submitter.

I'd be pissed, too. Cowherd is a cnut.

Colin Cowherd: THIEF
2006-03-23 11:45:41 AM  
I am submitter and I am one of the administrators...I am "The King." I don't put as much time into this site as some of the other guys, but I did actually write several of the stolen jokes, and beyond that, the whole act of it is just so lame...
2006-03-23 11:59:47 AM  
Where is the email from the asshat. I am a sports radio listener but he is an idiot.
2006-03-23 12:00:36 PM  
That's called plagiarism, and it's illegal.
2006-03-23 12:08:28 PM  
OK, I don't get it, but I'll take your word for it.

2006-03-23 12:17:49 PM  
Something's up with that page man, the text is the same color as the background and I had to highlight it to read it.

That sucks that he stole your material, I hope you get an apology at the least, but it's ESPN, they suck so you probably won't.
2006-03-23 12:54:43 PM  
God I hate Cowherd. I dumped the ESPN radio podcast because he's such an idiot.

The article says he responded. Where and how did he respond?

I don't get Cowherd here in Baltimore...we get a local show from 10 to 1.
2006-03-23 01:20:23 PM  
I just want to say 5 points to submitter for the use of the word 'ganks' in the headline.

This Cowherd guy seems like an asshat.
2006-03-23 01:21:56 PM  
I'm constantly amazed Cowherd is still on ESPN. With good programming like Mike and Mike, Dan Patrick, and Sportsbash, to have that Cowherd jackass in with them is lame.

I've always despised his show. I just think his opinion on stuff tends towards pure stupidity. It's totally not a surprise to me that he needs other people's stuff to keep whatever pitiful ratings he has.

It's sad how much this happens. I know I've heard things on the radio that came directly out of fark links or forums, yet for some reason this method of plagerism doesn't seem to be a problem. Maybe it's because tv and radio is so fleeting most people aren't paying enough attention. Still, they should be paying royalties or at least giving a little shout out at the end.

2006-03-23 01:23:12 PM  
I agree with submitter but I'll be the first to admit I empathized less when I saw which college team the blog supports.

Just a little less.

Somehow, this should end up with that Cowherd assclown getting canned because he is the WORST. I want to grate my brain whenever I hear his little nasal voice.

Colin, you stink, you suck, you should be unemployed.
2006-03-23 01:24:15 PM  
Is there anyway we can notifty ESPN and get this blowhard fired?
2006-03-23 01:24:30 PM  
Now that it is on FARK every radio DJ, talk show host, commentator, etc. will know how much of a cock this guy is. I don't think we've heard the end of this. Waiting for the "follow up".
2006-03-23 01:24:54 PM  
I like Cowherd, he's a funny guy. I like the fact that he is not all sports all the time. But that does suck that he jacked material without giving proper due.
2006-03-23 01:24:58 PM  
As someone trying to crack into the journalism industry: this is the kind of thing people get fired and disgraced over. Dump Cowherd.
2006-03-23 01:25:32 PM  
give your 2 cents here...if you think it's worth it...and it IS.

/i did.
2006-03-23 01:26:29 PM  
sue for an ESPN job. . . cowherd's job.

2006-03-23 01:26:43 PM  
Taking material and using it as your own is just plain capitalist. And as we all know that's just plain un-American.

/just plain
//we know what it means by context but if you say it 10 times wierd
2006-03-23 01:26:57 PM  
2006-03-23 01:26:59 PM  
He shouldn't have ganked the material. But the Herd is awesome.

/Someone walked in on my once when I was ganking the material. It was so embarassing.

Why didn't he just give props?

Would have avoided a lot of negativity, and also promoted a seemingly good sports Blog.

ESPN is going to the crapper on all fronts. It's sad that they are such an overpowering force, in a nation so obsessed with sports.
2006-03-23 01:28:23 PM  
Isn't this the douchebag that made fun of Eddie Guerrero right after he died?

I don't care about wrestling either, but I thought that was a pretty rotten thing to do
2006-03-23 01:28:51 PM  
Cowherd IS a jerk!

He made fun of Eddie Guerrero the day after he died.
2006-03-23 01:29:49 PM  
That response is almost worse than stealing the material in the first place. What an asshat.
2006-03-23 01:30:05 PM  
Holy shiat stingrza , what a farking assclown!

I would forward that response of his to every email you can find at ESPN. "We were sent it" means he knew it wasn't his material and apparently tried to pass it off as his own.

He should be fired for not only ripping you off, but in the way he responded to your "whining".
2006-03-23 01:30:24 PM  
As long as "bloggers" keep going on and on about how they work in their pajamas, and make up to the minute posts on their ingrown toenail surgery, they are going to have a hard time being held to the same journalistic integrity as other writers. People will continue to rip off their "blogs" and nothing can be done about it.

/welcome to the internet where everything is fair game
//I hate the word "blog"
2006-03-23 01:30:42 PM  
Cowherd said "Who cares about Eddie Guererro? It's not like he was a real person." or something to that effect after Eddie died.

I never had the connection with Eddie that most do (even though I am a big wrestling fan), but every wrestler in WWE should have lined up with a steel-toed boot and kicked him square in the nuts for that comment.

That's called plagiarism, and it's illegal.

Uh, no. Immoral, yes. Could you sue? Possibly if you were financially damaged. Illegal, as in, a criminal offense? Not anywhere in the U.S. that I know of.

/anyway, Cowherd and UM bloggers are both whiners and deserve each other
2006-03-23 01:32:44 PM  
the dude won't recognize the Steelers as Super Bowl Champs. The day he said that was the last day i have listened to him.
2006-03-23 01:33:24 PM  
i have a feeling Colin is in for some ownage...
2006-03-23 01:33:52 PM  
The only part of the Herd that's worth listening to is Spanning the Globe.

I'm glad in the Madison WI market he gets preempted for Jim Rome.
2006-03-23 01:35:11 PM  
Jesus. I hate (HATE) talk radio as a whole, but this guy wants to make me seriously injure him. News flash for you Cowpoke, William Shatner was able to pull off the pauses, you are not.

You know what he sounds like? farking college radio. Dead air, um, dead air.

/I should know, I was a college radio DJ
//talked about 2 full minutes of my hour show

2006-03-23 01:35:52 PM  
The Herd sucks. Tony Kornheiser was awesome. They replaced him with these aszclowns. They are awful. Flame on!

//Jim Rome listener
2006-03-23 01:35:52 PM

That's like saying "I'm glad I was only beaten with a baseball bat instead of set on fire."

sorry Cowherd, shouldnt have messed with the will lose.
2006-03-23 01:37:14 PM  
He takes calls on his show. Why doesn't someone call and confront him about it on the air?
2006-03-23 01:37:17 PM  

Naw, it's more like I'm glad I'm only going to catch a cold instead of the herp.
