I don't get it.  How much argue-debating can they get in within a half hour?  Four hours is 3 hours too much First Take, since they seem to cover almost everything within the first hour or so (same as Sports Nation, SportsCenter...).

Nobody cares.  The 2 weeks before the Super Bowl are the worst 2 weeks of the year for sports tv.  The game should be the week after the conf championship games.  Nobody got time for this.

If this was done at a Brazilian football staduim, doesn't that mean you'd hear hundreds of those obnoxious horns?  TBS did this years ago during a Brave's game.  It was weird but I could probably get used to it.  Until then, there's always the mute button.

There is so much hindsite here.  If you know somebody, relativley well, why would you not beleive them if they told you someone close to them has died?  How far does/should a reporter go to get confirmation of something like this for a story?  It's just not something you would expect someone to lie about.  I don't see how people can blame the media for not see this as a hoax. It was an interesting (to some) story, so they ran with it.  I'm sure they will be more dilegent in the future.

If you read what is says under the question in the above photo, it obviously has to do with Cutler playing with the same injury.  I doubt that RGIII took note of that as he tried to play with his bum knee last week, but I'm sure that's what espn was getting at.  And if Charisa asks the question, does it really matter what the question is ?

Maybe this will stop networks from scanning the crowd for side stories during an event.  This isn't TMZ.  Real sports fans could care less about who is at the stadium.  It's all about the game, keep the cameras on the field.

 I guarantee 99% of the people that heard that comment didn't think twice about it, and surely didn't for a minute think that he was being serious.  I really doubt that the players will even hear about the comment, and if they do, they'll just laugh about it. If that little comment follows or "haunts" them, they have bigger issues to deal with.
