He's NOT an Erin Andrews fan

    The L.A. Daily News' Tom Hoffarth rips strips off the back of one Erin Andrews.

    (P.S. An incredibly poorly edited piece, FWIW.)

    I read that earlier when your ol' pal posted it on Facebook. It's a terribly written hack job which is trying to be all Ted Casablanca-ish, but instead is just hackery.

    What few points he had to make were buried under shitty writing.

    "sweet-as-pie sideline maven." And thanks to Erin Andrews for giving me a round number.

    Loaded with crappy wordplay.

    Pardon the cliche, but it's a minefield of cliches.

    Horrendous. Cannot understand the jealousy directed at her by both men and women.

    Maybe she's not a heavy-hitting reporter, but has she really done anything to deserve that?
     
  10. Not that I know of. For the life of me, I can't understand the vigor she gets. Anytime I see her on TV on Saturday's, I always think she looks pretty amazing and she's not half bad at what she does. She's got it all.

    Wow. I know Hoffarth and I've worked with Erin and damn is he waaaaay off base.

    Erin is a TV personality working on occasion as a reporter (vs., say, a Suzy Kolber or Andrea Kreamer) and she never pretends she's anything but. As a TV columnist, Hoffarth knows this, knows that's how the game works, and he should be ashamed for ever writing such a sophomoric attack.

    Wow. Hoffarth usually pretty good but this is pretty weak.
