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.

Re: Is Skip Bayless retarded?

Stephen A. Smith used to be an OUTSTANDING NBA commentator on (I think) CNNSI for while before ending up on ESPN. He completely morphed into another human being.

Sadly, people like that stuff. They love conflict, they love grandstanding, they love pointed, extreme opinions and judging others. They don't like reasoned "well, either team could win if....." type of stuff. Without getting into any political debate, is there any better evidence of people liking that stuff than Rush Limbaugh?

i like van pelt because he's one of the only people on ESPN who doesn't seem like a major douchebag, and calling out Selig was pretty awesome
