Well, why exactly did Fox fire Craig James? Because of what he said. That's the only reason they fired him. He didn't even have a chance to do commentary and give them a reason to fire him for sub-par performance. If they hired him and then fired him because they found out that he said that gays and lesbians “are going to have to answer to the Lord for their actions.”  Well, Fox should be sued. That's his personal belief and should not be a reason to be fired. It doesn't matter whether you agree with the man or not. You hired him to do a job and you fired him for no reason. And reading Fox's response to why he was fired, "A Fox Sports statement said James was hired without proper vetting and that he's "a polarizing figure in the college sports community." He was let go "based on the perception that he abused a previous on-air position to further a personal agenda." (http://bostonherald.com/sports/college/college_football/2014/02/ex_grid_analyst_craig_james_files_bias_complaint_against_fox) Fox is in big trouble because their excuse for firing him is flimsy at best. They hired him to do a job and fired him 48 hours later, he has a case. Oh and for the guy who wrote this article, just hope you don't get fired for something you say.

Okay people. Calm down. First of all, the way a person runs, and how they run on the base paths may look slower than they actually are. Oh, and for those who haven't figured it out by now, just because this kid is "faster" than whomever, doesn't mean much. It's how he plays the game, and if he can't hit, throw, and most importantly read pitchers, then him being "fast" is a moot point.

The only thing good on Speed was the racing, and that you can find on Fox Sports 2. Seriously, all the other shows were straight out crap, so the move to Fox Sports 1 is a great move by eliminating all the moron shows that cluttered Speed. If Speed showed more racing, then I'd be upset, but the races that are being shown on Fox Sports 1 and practices on Fox Sports 2, are what I need. I don't need any more of that dumb "truck" show or their stupid reality shows like "Pink" and "Unique Whips".

As soon as I saw this, I busted up laughing. It was hilarious. I also knew exactly how you people would react. The only people who are as predictable as the ESPN haters are wrestling fans who believe what they are told to believe. What the College Game Day Final's Courtroom is, is just a parody of Sports Talk Radio and your local beer guzzler's sports discussion. Now it's time to take your ESPN hating glasses off.

Someone want to tell Brandon McCarthy that Mitch also was hit in the head and knows what he's talking about. So Brandon we already see what happens if you don't pitch inside, you run your mouth like an idiot on twitter.

The fact that anyone actually reports this as "news" is mind-boggling. If Awful Announcing really wants credibility, they'd stop reporting stupid stories like this. Then again, what are people going to do if this moron chokes on one of his hot dogs and dies on the 4th? Will people care?

For those of you blasting Kyle for not being his father, guess what. He doesn't care. If those of you watched the FULL interview and not just read it here or wherever you read it. It was a three part interview where he clearly states that he got the opportunity because of his last name and he knows that he wasn't and never would be his father because he didn't have the natural talent or drive his father had. But to call him a hack or whatever, obviously you don't know what you're talking about. For 5-6 years in the early 90's he was a Championship contender and winning races. So stop your uniformed rants based off of no knowledge. He was asked a question about Danica, and told the truth. Danica is no different than Scott Speed who got an F1 and Nascar ride because of Red Bull sponsoring him. Danica wouldn't have a ride without GoDaddy's backing. As a driver she's not that good and shouldn't be in Cup, rather she should be doing her second full year in Nationwide learning, and if she was doing well, then you could run her in a few Cup races. But she's not ready for Cup, because she hasn't learned and will never learn the proper way to drive a Cup car before she is thrown to the side. Heck, she wasn't a good Indy Car driver, so what's so wrong with Kyle saying she can't race?

I hope for everyone's sake that all the games on NBC go into 5 overtimes, so all these spoiled youngsters can watch something that's truly entertaining as opposed to Leno or Fallon.

Let me be the first person to say that these moving cameras above the playing field need to be banned. This is further proof. The shots they give just plain suck and don't bring anything to the sport they are being used at, and throw in that the fans at the sport have this annoying thing that's an eyesore and distracting.

I watched some of the game, and did not see this part, but I have no problem with them pointing out how stupid the "Green Men" are. Sure, they used "living in the basement" jokes, but ask the "Green Men" if they care. This is just more publicity for them.  Here's the thing, the "Green Men" have had their 15 minutes of fame extended by stuff like this. If people wouldn't show them and ignore them, they'd go away.

This was completely horrible. No it did not stay split screen. It would randomly go to full screen of one or the other game for about 30 seconds. This has got to be one of the biggest screw up ever and the the people in charge at Fox Sports West need to be fired immediately. This was completely uncalled for and they were completely unprepared for something they should have been prepared for.
