ESPN in cahoots with the GOP?

I HATE the Rams... I'm a Hawks fan. The same division, rivals, plus I have Dr. Stockton in my ear about his beloved Rams what seems like everyday (or hour depending on season). The Rams & the Cowgirls are my two most hated teams, but I'm still against the Pats on this. Strip the SuperBowl win, no. Possibly punish someone now that it's come out, I'm up for discussion.... How bout losing the first round pick they have that matters...

Jolly, the Rams were a two touchdown favorite, the greatest show on turf.

If that is an honest quote and you are not blowing smoke, then SJU taught you nothing about critical thinking and deconstruction.

I am ashamed that we hold the same Bachelor of Arts degree.

p.s. I still love you... albeit a little less.

I want more highlights of more games and less talk/banter/bs of Roger Clemens, Jessica Simpson, OJ Simpson, Brian McNamee, Michael Vick, etc., etc., etc.

Agreed...that on the fantasy/rankings type crap they put on sportscenter. Show me highlights!!

Sports Center has turned into "TMZ". I can't watch it anymore. Give me NESN Sports Desk any day. ESPN is way over the top, and needs to get back to basics. I haven't watched Sports Center since I woke up Super Bowl Sunday morning and the first thing I heard was "new spygate allegations"...they ruined my Super Bowl (so did the Pats, but at least I could have enjoyed the pre-game).

I've seen baseball programs where major league players say their favorite TV show is "Sportscenter." How much of a dimwit do you have to be for that to be your favorite show?? It's not even a show, it's just disjointed 2 second clip of a home run or a dunk strung together on repeat. And when there is a major event like the Finals right now, you get commentary ad nauseam with very little original insight.

You know how you can see just how bad Sportscenter is at relaying the day's sports??? Go to a major sporting event in one of the 4 major sports, then come home and watch the highlights (or lack thereof). I guarantee you will be disappointed at how quickly they cover the game. I went to the Atlanta Braves season opener in March where they came back in the 9th down 9-4 and tied it 9-9. Then went to the 13th where they went down 12-9 then made it 12-11 before coming up short. The Sportscenter clip was less than 10 seconds and only showed two plays. Pretty crazy considering it may be one of the most exhilarating games I've ever been to in person
