    first off, i'm a fan of espn's nfl guy. he's been a pal and his info is first-rate.

    but if i hear him mispronounce "negotiate" one more time, I'LL FREAKIN' SCREAM!!!

    can't anyone in bristol tell him the word is "nuh-go-SHE-ate," not, "nuh-go-SEE-ate?" drives me NUTS!!! :mad: :mad: :mad:

    okay. i'm much better now.

    ESPN's Sean Salisbury is reporting that John Clayton is a pencil-neck geek.
  6. Could he do something with that hair. I mean, what is that? Just shave the damn thing already...

    Have you ever seen that weird patch of hair on his left side (your right) when it gets messed up? It's like seven feet long and full of hilarity.

    Great call UT. Beat me to it. I'm a horrible, horrible reporter. Always a god damned second late.

    I've said it before on here and I'll say it again right now. My only pet peeve/beef with John Clayton isn't entirely his fault: I fucking hate that every time one of the hosts talks to him they ALWAYS say he's "The Professor."

    Christ, just introduce him as John Clayton and be done with it.

    hey, i understand wally cox has a face/look best-suited for radio, but he's on espn for the info. at least he could pronounce the words correctly. 8) 8) 8)

    Clayton must not like people with more intelligence than him, that is way he does not like Salisbury.

    Salisbury wasn't that good as an NFL QB. Did Salisbury ever play for a team that got to a Super Bowl? If not, he and Clayton have something in common.
