Snapper Carr: In his defense, he dropped the outrage once he was told it was satire.
Cymbal: SAS is the only blowhard worth listening to, though to be fair I think Forrest Gump could school Skip farkface in a debate.
Arkanaut: Snapper Carr: In his defense, he dropped the outrage once he was told it was satire.I'm surprised he's familiar with what "satire" means.
ChrisDe: Years ago, ESPN's daytime hours were filled with European soccer games, replays of games from the night before and SportsCenter reruns. And showing sports was so much better than showing blowhards argue about sports.
Flappyhead: ChrisDe: Years ago, ESPN's daytime hours were filled with European soccer games, replays of games from the night before and SportsCenter reruns. And showing sports was so much better than showing blowhards argue about sports.Years ago there was a really good article from, of all places, Deadspin about the problem with sportscasters these days. The long and the short of it was that the majority of them have no connection with the fan anymore and can't relate to them. Listen to any sports show and it's nothing but "experts" yammering back and forth trying to out-troll the other just to generate talk about, what else, themselves. There's a reason why fan blogs, as poorly written as most are, have taken off. People want to talk about sports with other fans, not have some big mouthed goiter scream into a mic for thirty minutes about why Eli Manning should be compared to Joe Montana.
Fade2black: I gave up on SAS when I realized what a racist shiat-bag he is.
generalDisdain: HAHAHAHAHAAHAAHAHAAA! Dude knows what SNL is but not The Onion.I may actually DVR First Take to see who gives him crap.
Dafatone: The problem isn't blowhards, it's having the wrong blowhards. PTI's pretty great.
IHadMeAVision: Fade2black: I gave up on SAS when I realized what a racist shiat-bag he is.Examples? I live in NYC so he's a talk radio host over here and he's second to no one else on the air. Of course his competition are Michael Kay, Mike Francesca (who is fine but I personally agree with SAS's opinions more) and that Jewish-sounding guy who says "Metropolitans" and "Knickerbockers" every time.I'm white and don't I've never heard a racist thing come out of his mouth, unless you're counting how quick he is to point out when black athletes act like fools, which ain't really racist on his part, and he's quick to hang up on black callers who blame race for why the media is coming down hard on this or that basketball/football/whatever-playing knucklehead. Of course, I only hear him on ESPN NY, don't watch the national show.Plus, Skip Bayliss is an arrogant sack of duck penises.
Fade2black: I'll be completely honest and say that it's been long enough I forgot. Over a year. The only parts I recall were because he felt some white players were getting preferential treatment while all the good ol' black folk were getting thrown under the bus. Was football related. And utterly stupid. He ranted and raved for about 20 minutes. I would have national ESPN on before my morning 6am show would start locally (west coast), and he was always on. And his last 10-15 minutes was always some stupid rant that meant nothing but for him to grandstand himself and sound relevant. It was a *huge* turnoff, and that's coming from a sports radio nut, so we're not exactly brainiacs. *shrug*
IHadMeAVision: (except for that impossibly-sarcastic and ancient-sounding Jewish guy)
Dafatone: IHadMeAVision: (except for that impossibly-sarcastic and ancient-sounding Jewish guy)Steve Sommers. He's the best.
