Yanks_RSJ: I'm assuming that ESPN has a huge "as reported by" scoreboard in their newsroom.

Second prize is a set of steak knives.

eagles95: roc6783: Dogfacedgod: Rick Reilly is the premier cocksucker of sports journalists

Rick Reilly is the worst combination of Chris Berman, Dan Patrick, and Peter King.

I dont mind Patrick and King. Patrick is a lot better since getting away from the ESPN machine. King can be a moron....but he's no where near the level of Derp that Reilly is

At their worst:

Berman = Loudly obnoxious
Patrick = Afraid he will collapse into a singularity of smug
King = His Pokemon binder of sports insiders, let him show you them

//At times all of them, including Reilly, can be redeeming. At least Dan Patrick is usually funny.

Lost Thought 00: Doogled: Rick Reilly has been going down hill since before he left SI for ESPN, but at least he's irrelevant enough that I usually don't have to hear his name. Bill Simmons, on the other hand, is that terrible combination of being god awful at his job yet also being quoted constantly by idiots.

Reilly is their second highest paid "talent", behind Simmons. At least with Simmons you could say they get their money's worth
