    Bet he can spell awful right though, as can I.

    Two things:

    1. Don't let Olbermann's politics taint your assessment of his talents. I'm no right-winger, but I'd be a foolish to argue that Rush Limbaugh isn't talented in what he does. Same thing with Olbermann.

    2. Hey nimrod, before you call me a damn fool, learn how to spell awful. Clue: It's not "aweful", as you've typed not once, but twice in your reply. Jesus F. Christ -- if you're in a position to hire / fire it's only because Judge Smails let his nephew run the family newspaper.

    Now Judge Smails that is one hell of a talent right there.

    Olbermann not talented on ESPN? The Big Show was legitimate good tv. If you didn't think Keith and Dan were great as a team (and now are the best team on radio for an hour), well...

    Good point Rasputin. I am in awe of Keith. I'm in awe of how he actually makes money for any company he works for. The guy SUCKS! Wait did I spell SUCKS correctly?

    Well, Red is sure building credibility points.

    Believe me when I say I am not the only person who thinks that guy is a no-talent-ass clown.

    I guess others are afraid to post because the K.O. fan club will come down hard on them.

    ... that's damning with faint praise if I ever heard it. Patrick is awful, at least IMO. And an hour of listening to Olberman talk about politics, the Yankees and the missing 1904 World Series doesn't really do anything for me.

    I think Henry Abbott of True Hoop.com might be in line to fill his spot... he just signed with ESPN.com.

    As somebody else pointed out, arguing about talent is pointless. I'm sure the people saying Olbermann is a talentless hack are fans of somebody we'd think shouldn't be allowed near a TV camera/radio mic/laptop.
