It was probably a bit, making fun of the Winston-Cox interview. Either that or Merriman was having fun. He tweeted about it later that day in a joking manner.

Its impossible for sideline reporters or play by play to be journalists. They are either recieving their checks from the teams theyre covering, or their bosses are paying the teams to cover theirgames. Its a conflict of interest and removes any right to call the job a journalism position.

Sideline reporters are not journalists. That's like saying play-by-play and color are journalists. They are there to cover the game and relate the game to the fans. She was focused on issues that will have no further effect on the season. It may warrant one or two questions, but if the whole interview is focused on the sexual assault non-case, then its her trying to make a statement.

It is annoying how Simmons seems to think he's the only sane person in a world of crazy people. And he all too seriously has made comments about how he wants to be a GM. When you make your writing an application letter you should be ready to take some shots.

For major events I think the networks should have little to no loyalty when it comes to producing a quality product. But on the other hand you can't treat PBP like it's seperate from any other workforce. If I'm at McDonalds, doing an good (maybe not great) job, I would be pissed off if I got fired. In fact, it would be illegal if they simply said "we have an applicant that will do better". So some sense of loyalty I understand. But for national events like the US Open and the Final Four? You need your A-team.

It was bad form on Rome's part. Just because there are people that think the holocaust was a hoax doesn't mean you have to address it. If Rome actually believes the NBA is fixed then he shouldn't cover the sport. If Rome doesn't think it's fixed then he has no obligation to ask that question. But you also have to remember, Rome is NOT a journalist just because he talks about sport. Rome is a commentator/analyst/talking head, but not a journalist.
Also, the idea that "a majority of fans thought it was indeed fixed" is a little skewed.

I think he's gotten a lot better the past couple weeks. By no means is Shaq where everyone expected him to be, but I'm starting to notice a steady amount of hits compared to previously having all misses. I would like to see how he performs with a year under his belt.

Ignorance isn't an excuse. You should know how sports media works by now. Colin could have interviewed most anyone but he chose Warner. Colin or somebody on staff should have done enough homework to make the DP Show on Colin's radar.

If an athlete in a major sport was heard calling anybody a retard, especially at a press conference, they would be instantly fined and an apology would be released. How does the UFC continue letting their fighters sound completely moronic and occasionally insane? I realize it doesn't hurt the brand in the short term, but long term it will limit the brand by alienating consumers and perpetuating stereotypes.
The message board you linked had a guy accuse her of being a scammer and she alluded to this not being the first time. How did none of the site moderators not look into that?

So Phillips was running sports betting scams, got hired by the website she was using to scam people, used the site's name to continue scamming, got hired by ESPN randomly, used ESPN's name to continue scamming, and seems to center her focuses around controlling every sports comedy website/page/account she can grab. KEYSER SOZE!!!!

Pacquiao still has the offensive firepower, but he no longer has the offensive mindset. Pac has gotten too technical for his own good. Now he thinks he can use his boxing skills rather than attack. Look at how Cotto changed his style once he didn't have to be a bruiser.

I think this was a reaction to all the unnecessary Romo-bashing that's been going on (i.e. Colinsworth). I'm not really a fan of Romo, but watching the game just made me feel bad for him. He did a lot of dumb stuff (Like ignoring Dez and forcing throws to Witten), but for the most part isn't the offense's problem.

This will eventually turn out the same for UFC as it did for boxing. Once fighters begin to get paid what they deserve, or unionize, Fox wont be able to subsidize it anymore.
Shapiro's story is probably the most dramatic. Plus is has a very traceable arch.

Wish Joe Tessitore would get more run. I love him as the PBP man for Friday Night Fights on ESPN2, and would say he's arguably the best in boxing. But he only seems to get niche sports and one college football game a year.
