I don't know what jocktocracy idiot was calling the Nebraska-USC Gamecocks game, but holy shit i was so angry with him. I mean, I was already angry because of the game. But there was a play where nebraska fumbled and this jock goon was railing on abdullah, saying "you have to protect the football, you just can't be careless there". And on replay, the kid specifically braced himself for the hit,and put two hands on the ball, high and tight. It was just a great play by the SC kid, but this goon was just throwing out cliches. Then, every time Pelini or spurrier would go for it on 4th and short, this bozo was just crying about how risky it was and what a bad mistake it was. God, i wish i was the head of ABC so I could have given him the hook on air.
that was rod gilmore, and he's an idiot.

Well, he now has the coveted title of my most hated color commentator. And that's quite a competitive position to hold.

From James Andrew Miller (aka the guy who wrote that ESPN book):Jim Rome's yearly income from the radio show is around $30M.That's about six times more than I would've guessed.

Not me . I've heard that he's third in the big three of Howard, Limbaugh and Rome, and then there's a huge gap in pay between the next one. Rome plays in like every market in the country, sometimes on multiple stations.

This is definitely the most disappointing new thing I learned today. I'm gonna go watch a clip of Jim Everette punching him in his stupid face to cheer myself up.

I kind of love that Bobby Knight petulantly refuses to say Kentucky or Indiana on air. I can't imagine a single other announcer on ESPN getting away with something like that. The only reason i can come up with on how he gets away with it is that everyone is terrified of him, his direct producers, the mid and upper level management. Some people are getting pissed about it and getting on their high horse about it, but I think it's just hilarious that they can't control him (or refuse to).

I've come to the conclusion that nobody, especially analysts, say anything interesting anymore. The risk doesn't outweigh the reward. One exception is Jeff Van Gundy. He's good

Did you watch the college 3pt & dunk contest? Those announcers were absurd. One of them was saying that he could tell the one of the 3pt contestants was really competitive by the way he shot...And one of the dunkers should have got more playing time based on how he ran after one of his dunks bc he was fast.

Oh good lord. I'm telling you, listening to Lebatard has ruined me. I have always thought most analysis was bs, but it's at a new level. I rarely watch anything outside of a game or a highlight anymore. I was flipping channels the other day and saw Linda Cohn and some black dude doing a televised radio show, discussing the Ubaldo/Tulo thing and immediately "knew" it was Ubaldo's fault, that he was a clubhouse cancer and why he was traded. All just speculation. They don't know it Tulo tried to FCk his wife, called his mom a whore or nothing. Must that Tulo is the white, rich, beloved franchise guy and he must be in the right. It irritated me

But if I were to send an e-mail in, I would say something like:Dear Dan,Your show has ruined me for ESPN. I can't watch it anymore. I used to watch the "analysis" like a Shaun of the Dead zombie as ESPN threw wrenches and empty beer bottles at me and I just kept coming back for more, never really processing why these empty beer bottles were bouncing off my face. Now after listening to your show for over a year now, I see this analysis like a Dawn of the Dead zombie where ESPN is firing shotguns at me and it just angers me and I want to bite their faces off.I mean, I just heard Tim Legler say that the Utah Jazz could beat the Lakers in the playoffs if they have two other players besides Deron Williams playing well. Huh. Three guys playing well can beat the Lakers. Who knew?Thanks for nothing,Joey in Springfield

I hate micheal smith. I hate crappy Ex-Jock analysts like Hugh Douglas. I hate that they ruined a decent concept for a show " numbers never lie" by taking out the stat geeks and hot women and making it into just another show where they yell at each other. And so, it filled me with great pleasure to read this story..
