    it's "neh-go-she-ate," not "neh-go-SEE-ate."

    granted, it's a personal pet peeve that rears it's ugly head every time nfl free agency comes up and runs through the signing of all the league's draft picks, which means he may continue to mispronounce "negotiate" every day from now through september.

    puh-leeze, someone at espn straighten j.c. out. it's like nails on an effin' chalkboard.

    it's painful enough to watch john on tv. he's a great example of a guy with a face best-suited for radio. so at least pronounce the words correctly.

    thanks for listening.

    He's from Pittsburgh.

    Trust me, having proper syntax is hard enough.
  5. Anybody else notice the weird way he pronounced "huddle" as well. It's almost "huddo."

    Doesn't take a noo-kyu-lar scientist to pronounce foy-lee-age

    I really miss Clayton arguing at the top of his lungs with and being insulted by that washed up loser sexual harassing back-up quarterback guy on ESPN. Those segments were great television....

    I'm sure his former adversary in those enlightening debates is doing something important ... like taking a picture of his junk.

    That load -- I won't dignify his existence by mentioning his name -- can do one thing:
    insult the intelligence of virtually any audience.

    I always wanted Salisbury to say something like "How many NFL games did you play in?" with Clayton coming back: "Uh, about three fewer than you did, Sean."
