And what's the point of Nick and Robin Bakay? It's pointless and not funny. Maybe if he did it as Salem the cat from Sabrina.

I nominate Salem the Cat for SC anchor. Now that would actually make me tune in again. I'm dead serious.

If you get the chance read this compelling article in the Washington Post by Boswell who interviewed Fay Vincent at length about Rose: http://www.washingto...2-2004Jan5.html

hate to break up the Pete Rose hatred, but where was Sean Salisbury on Chain Reaction? Did I miss something or is he just taking a week off? I've kind of grown to like him. Anyone know?
Sean was in New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl with the crew from the Dan Patrick Radio Show, who did all their shows from there last week. I agree he's very entertaining. Most analysts will bash athletes, then suck up to them when actually talking to them, but Sean is great at being genuinely honest, either positively or negatively, and sticking to his guns when he talks to guys like Joe Horn and Terrell Owens on the radio show.

And what's the point of Nick and Robin Bakay?
While I think the whole "lovable loser" schtick (schtoink?) is a funny idea, NB can't quite seem to pull it off. However, I think they should keep those segments just to see Robin in those French Main/stripper/Jeannie outfits!
Yes, I am the last hetero male left on these boards, why do you ask?

I can deal with Stuart Scott in small doses. I can deal with Berman in smaller doses. It's really weird going directly from Scott's forced hiphopishness to Boomers played out 70's references.
Keep Robin Bakay and her outfits. Send Nick Bakay far, far away. How the hell did he end up with something like that? There must be something fundamentally wrong in the universe. Or she has shitty eyesight.

Rule 5 on the writer's ballot for the Hall of Fame states: "Voting shall be based upon the player's record, playing ability, integrity, sportsmanship, character and contributions to the team." Since Rose was betting while he was playing/managing seems to me that he fails the "integrity" standard big time.
Yes, Pete Rose is a despicable human being. His achievements before he became a despicable human being qualify him for the Hall Of Fame, in my opinion. I really want him to just go the fuck away.
Back to SportsCenter, Dan Patrick wasn't on 6:00 p.m. show yesterday. Is he on vacation? If he is, may he stay away for months. The show was much more tolerable without him. I like Linda Cohn a lot these days.

The people I have an issue with are the ones who who believe he bet, and don't care. yeesh. sorry, but the integrity of the game (such as it is) is at stake here.
I don't think Sportscenter is overplaying this. It's a BIG deal. HOF voting is going on right now, the new slate is about to come up, and Pete Rose is always an issue at this time of year. Now the confessional book is out. 14 years of lies have been exposed.
I'm guessing this is hard on Dan Patrick, being from Cincy and all.

People aren't greeting this revelation with hugs and praise because:
- He doesn't seem at all contrite. In fact, he pretty much refuses to apologize.
- He's only coming clean to sell books.
- He's been lying about this for 15 years.

As a Cowboy fan, I dread Gibbs' return to the division because it means making the playoffs with Coughlin in NY and Reid in Philly will be hell on earth. There should be lots of bloodletting over the next 3 to 4 years.

I hope we dont get so sick of pete rose than SC have made some sick of LeBron.

It's a good thing, too. He's too good to be wasted on the sorry-ass NBA.

Feinstein (though he's personna non grata at ESPN these days)).
Any thoughts on why? I like Feinstein and just realized after reading your post that he used to be on Sports Reporters every now and then.
With Sean Sallisbury's job offer from Denny Green I think the question of whether he or John Clayton knows more about the NFL is answered (until Clayton gets a GM post I guess). Kato may still be an ass to Clayton but I still contend that this is mostly schitk.

I am a little bit worried about Joe Gibbs back in DC (I'm and Eagles Fan and can remember when the Skins were a team I worried about come game day), but the SC guys this morning were cracking me up, one person predicted they would make the playoffs next year and maybe the Super Bowl. Ass kissing much? Jeez.
I think that was Mark Schlareth, who played for Gibbs on the last Redskins Super Bowl team. That's probably why he's so high on Gibbs. As a Cowboy fan, I'm a little scared of Gibbs' return. But as a native and resident of D.C., it sure is exciting to see him back. Parcells, Gibbs, Reid and Coughlin...there's gonna be some tough football being played in the NFC East the next couple of years.
Feinstein (though he's personna non grata at ESPN these days)).
Any thoughts on why?
A couple of years ago, Feinstein (or Junior, as Tony Kornheiser refers to him) wrote a column on AOL - I believe - that was highly critical of ESPN. Evidently, ESPN thought the column was a little below the belt and severed ties with him. I'm sure there's more to it, but that's the extent of my knowledge of the situation.

btw I dont care much for Nick Bakay segment either.
I miss Keith (we dont get MSNBC)

Also, it seems to me that recently we have just witnessed more players wanting to make a SC highlight and not focusing on the game on hand. Like the various NBA players who make a routine dunk and celebrate like they have just won the NBA finals. Or that asshole on New Orleans Saints player Joe Horn who used his cell phone after scoring a TD a couple of weeks back. Or Manny Ram and Barry Bonds standing there watching their homeruns. This crap would not be as much IMO if we did not have SC making such a big deal about this stuff.
I say we go back to the old days of reporting the highlights and not making stupid jokes and shouting out stupid catch phrases. And stop showing these guys celebrating everytime they hit a homerun or score a TD.
That being said I do have to admit that Sports Center does usually have great interviews and great reporting.

And then there's Stu Scott, who scripts everything, and I still say it shows. Give me Kevin Frasier, Linda Cohn, Robin Roberts, hell pretty much anyone over tu. I used to like him, but his schtick is played out. (as is Kenny Mayne's, who's become a joke. He was good for a while, but now he stinks too)
