ESPN good guys

    As much as we beat ESPN up on this board--and rightfully so--who are the guys you actually enjoy on ESPN? Reading the Peter Gammons thread made me remember not all of ESPN is evil...just most of it.

    I love the entire Baseball Tonight crew. And Paul Maguire.

    You?

    Gammons, Tom Jackson and I used to love Dave Campbell when he was on Baseball Tonight.

    thank for stopping by tom jackson, thea andrews, uh never mind. ;D

    i like the understated talking heads like karl ravech. he's terrific but only because he stands out from every other talking helmet head. i like kornheiser and wilbon, too.

    There are many who are great people... in life. That's why I never understood the bashing, particularly to the level it's reached.

    Virtually everyone involved in ESPN's college football stuff is a good guy. Other than Trev, I honestly can't think of one who's been a jerk that I've ever dealt with and he's gone.

    To answer your question, Luggy, by using an analogy -- I'm sure Dubya is a good husband and likely was a decent father, doesn't mean his mistakes in office don't deserve to be criticized.

    So when we ridicule Chris Berman, Joe Theismann, Mel Kiper Jr., et al, we're doing so because they're annoying and really bad at their jobs, i.e. to inform and entertain.
     
  8. I'm rather fond of Erin Andrews, or as some call her, the future Mrs. More hideous than Ben Seaver.   ;D

    That is the greatest screen name I've ever seen. Thank you.

    Also, great call on Ravech, Leo. Of all their sport specific shows, he's easily the best host.

    I like Rece Davis and Dave Revsine. Never minded them.

    Dave Revsine is heavily underused.

    John Buccigross is good too.

    Came across John Anderson once or twice and he seemed like a good guy. Heard the same about Harold Reynolds.
