Re: Is Skip Bayless retarded?

No. He's a paid personality who acts his part so he can get people riled up, talking about his show and, thus, watching his show. He gets ratings and does a very good job of what they tell him to do. I don't think he actually believes half of what comes out of his mouth.

Re: Is Skip Bayless retarded?

I honestly can't decide whether he just says outrageous bull**** just for the sake of drawing attention to himself, or if he actually believes in what he says. If he actually believes in what he says, then yes, he is almost certainly suffering from some sort of retardation.

He is by far the worst person to listen to, and I immediately flip the channel as soon as I hear his obnoxious voice.

I kind of like sportsnation. The chick is awesome obviously but Cowher and the fan voting also gives it a lot of lulz with their stupidity.

Re: Is Skip Bayless retarded?

I remember when he was a columnist in Chicago, thinking that this guy was like the least interesting, least creative, biggest hack I'd ever read in sports writing. On TV, he's even worse. Thankfully, I have purged from memory almost all recollection of his writings, so alas, I can't give any specific examples of how bad he was, bu I do seem to remember he had these weird grudges he would play out that he would always be on the wrong end of.

It's hard for me to believe that there was a time when I really, really loved ESPN. And MTV.

Re: Is Skip Bayless retarded?

While we already have an official bitch about ESPN and bitch about broadcasters threads, and while Dom has a tradition of lame threads, the title of this thread pleases me so much that it's going to stay open.

But, yeah, +1 to those who realize that Skip is acting a role in a play. ESPN talking head conflicts are all staged and scripted, all the time, and it's been validated by several leaks over the years regarding personalities.

Upon further review. Not only is the thread title awesome. The actual text in the OP is too. Good work Dom.

Re: Is Skip Bayless retarded?

Skip Bayless may actually be THAT dumb. It's common knowledge that Woody Paige / Jay Mariotti are actually good friends IRL (and that Kornheiser actually dislikes Mariotti a lot) and that much of the "hate" is scripted, but I find it hard to believe that people like Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless are figments of ESPN's imagination.
