doglover: The really racist people aren't that creative. They just say the one word over and over again.
Captain Kickass: On one hand, he's racist. On the other hand, he doesn't like Jemele Hill.So, split decision it's Skip Bayless, then.

moogrum: When all you write about is race, you can probably expect to hear a bit about race.
sigdiamond2000: Who still watches ESPN?
SuperT: to be fair, she is pretty terrible. not skip bayless bad, but "I'm a super serious black journalist so I need to write about race issues all the time".doesn't espn have an arrangement with the NABJ? surely there was someone more qualified than Hill they could have sent.
IAmRight: Just went and looked through the Jemele Hill archive at ESPN
IAmRight: It's always funny how often every black sportswriter is accused of being racist, even when they don't mention race at all. Just went and looked through the Jemele Hill archive at ESPN; the vast majority of articles aren't about race. It tells something about you when you see things that aren't corroborated by facts.
Jim from Saint Paul: What's the guy's Fark handle?
YonderScott: He could have just called her an idiot, of course he could have just called everyone at the four letter network that. They spent a month telling the world how competitive ND would be against Alabama and we see how well that worked out. If it wasn't for AJ's girlfriend and Brent foaming at the mouth the game would have been a yawner.

Dr Dreidel: Didn't an announcer do just that for MSNF a few weeks ago? The atrocious Jets-Titans Week 15 game, I believe - Tirico went to commercial saying something like "This game sucks, but we're all gonna watch it anyway."

The atrocious Jets-Titans Week 15 game, I believe - Tirico went to commercial saying something like "This game sucks, but we're all gonna watch it anyway."Well, if it was SNF, it wouldn't have been Tirico (and they wouldn't have had Jets-Titans). It was MNF for sure (that CJ run helped me win my fantasy week). And yeah, when you have a MONTH to hype up a game, you're not going to talk about how the game sucks
Dogfacedgod: Well to the racist cracker's defense...Jemele Hill is terrible, I mean does she even know sports, really? She either sucks a mean dick or this is an "inclusiveness" hire. ("inclusiveness" is the new buzz word for "diversity"), because she has no talent as a journalist, let a one a sports journalist.What that racist did was secure her job...way to go asshole.
Dr Dreidel: or trivia about the cameramen
IAmRight: I want to know which guy is the clutch guy for finding the attractive women in the stands (because yes, they all know where they are and can find them quickly when the producer tells them to).
Dogfacedgod: She either sucks a mean dick
Yanks_RSJ: If you've ever had the pleasure of watching the network feed of sportscasts,
IAmRight: Yanks_RSJ: If you've ever had the pleasure of watching the network feed of sportscasts,They have those often for the AFL, since it's just some crappy online stream for most games. It was funnier before the broadcasters realized their mics were still live on the streams during the breaks, though. But yeah, having known cameramen, they know where everything is.
Yanks_RSJ: I love the cheerleader frame-ups heading back from a break. Some pretty enjoyable upskirts before they settle on a slightly less risque shot to play under the sponsorship graphics.
IAmRight: Every single dance team member, you have to open each photo and check it out fairly close, especially early when you don't know their names yet
Yanks_RSJ: So, did you cum, or what?
Champion of the Sun: She's a horrible person. Sports is one of the few places in American culture where everyone can come together and root for the best person for the job. Yes, some racism still exists in sports. But every time there is an issue with a black person involved, she turns it racial. People don't like Mike Vick for a lot of reasons, racism dropped off that list awhile ago. Yet if he's booed or loses endorsements, it's cause he is black. She's never had a real insight, and it's telling that the only people on ESPN that will work with her are the short bus riding first take crew./Letter is still wrong though//Every black person of any notoriety gets them though, quit whining
Vodka Zombie: SnarfVader: the King's EnglishThatword.jpgLOL!CSB-time:When I was teaching an English Comp. class a while back, I had one smart-ass, woefully-arrogant student spend the better part of the first day of class yammering to me about how he deserved to be in a more "advanced" class because, as he put it, he had no problem speaking the "King's English."So, being the bastard troll that I am, I asked him which king. And, after watching him fumble around in his tattered American brain for a few minutes, he inevitably came back with Edward I, to which I said, "Great! Everything you write or speak in this class will be consistent with Middle English. Good luck. Read Chaucer. Everyone else, let's learn gerunds."I will say, the dude gave it a good effort --even went so far as to take a swing at Middle English calligraphy in one of his papers. In the end, though, after a couple of weeks, he silently reverted back to our modern tongue and shut his trap. But, I did give him points for trying.
Crewmannumber6: Your essay would carry more weight if you didn't feel the need to shorten the word 'Because'.
