    When Stephen A. Smith is the voice of reason on a race-related topic, you know you've gone off the reservation.

    What's sad is when it started with Chris Berman, and Bob Ley and the game, they were solidly about sports and I loved it.

    With the NFL, MLB, Golf, Tennis and NBA networks, Sportscenter is no longer essential sports watching TV.

    Hope they start paying attention and get back to their roots.

    Rob fucked up. That's pretty much all that needs to be said. He's not a racist. He just made a stupid statement that is going to be hard to live down.
