Im gonna have to go ahead and disagree with you guys on a lot of those. Kornheiser, Bayless, Plaschke and George Michaels sports machine kick serious ass. The worst out there has to be Tony Reali :monkey2. "A.T.H." fell apart when he took over, that no-talent ass clown!

Thing that annoys me about Colin Cowherd (And most ESPN national shows with callers) is the total disrespect for callers.

Basically the caller with a differeing opinion with call up, get cut off and shut down and Colin will go on to the next caller with a condesending "I'm right, you're wong and you're a moron because of it"

Example

Caller: ARod hasn't gotten a big hit when it really matters...

Colin:  Are you kidding me?  Did you see him against the Twins last October?  Okay, Tim in St. Louis, you're up next on the Herd.

I thought the whole purpose of caller driven radio is to offer differing opinions about the issues?

Why do you think I don't do that, Steve?

Difference is, after cutting off a caller Rome will take the Rush Limbaugh approach of rambling on about why the caller was wrong for about, eh, 10 minutes.
Followed by about 5 minutes of Rome reading email reaction to the call (the ones that agree with his point of view) and then he'll go on to the next call

Rome's cutting a caller also gives the impression that Rome wants to move the show along and not get too far out of control. 

Hell, Rome even says such as much all the time, and its the reason for the yearly Smackoff

Cowherd and ESPN make
it seem they are only taking calls because TPTB demand they take calls during a segment or two in their show

That's because, Steve, Rome is aware caller-driven shows don't do that well. Rome's problem is that he's on the same timeslot as El Rushbo, otherwise, his ratings would be alongside Imus and Stern.

Stewart Scott has got to go, see the ESPN Prostitute thread.

Linda Cohn as well, If I have to listen to a woman talk about sports, she better be good looking and Linda looks like Martina Navertervdefdkfpasodfjlova.

Can't stand the Albino looking white bald ex NBA player that does commentary for ESPN and ABC, don't know his name.  But he sucks and he's realy creepy.
