    Dana Jacobson gets reassigned, removed from First Take. Diestch expresses dismay, and bangs on Bayless for awhile.

    Jacobson made Bayless seem like Jim McKay. I mean, I never watch that shit.

    I like Dana Jacobsen.

    Skip? Not so much.

    I'm not so sure Dana deserves it. She continued to let Skip rant when she was on the show, so she's not much different than Jay Crawford

    Have you even watched the show? There's no stopping Skip once he gets going.

    Yes, and nobody has ever told him to "shut up" or that he's an "idiot" or that Troy Aikman's sexuality should not be guessed on in a book about hte Dallas Cowboys

    ... I suppose this was what happens when you let douchebags be douchaebags. Happens way too much in the world.

    I like Jacobsen, but Crawford is a better host. The show is pretty much unwatchable to me at this point, so I guess it doesn't matter. I can't imagine many things worse on TV than Rob Parker and Skip debating a topic.

    Another show on ESPN with people screaming at each other? I never knew ... shocked, I'm telling you, shocked. A case of Skip-er Shock, if you please.

    The greatest thing that the San Jose Mercury News ever did was allow ESPN to take Skip Bayless (I forget how the transition actually went, so if there was another stop for Bayless between San Jose and Bristol forgive me). The guy has always been an idiot, good on Jacobsen to leave.

    I find this funny after last week when ESPN showed how the "media" was handling the Tebow story. Every single clip they used was from an ESPN commentator and Skip Bayless.
