    I'm half appalled, half nauseous. I don't even know how to describe this.

    Are all the Control + C keys worn out in Bristol?

    Ah, hell ... c'mon, lighten up. It's not really plagarism if you SAY it instead of WRITING it.

    This would be a good time to get caught plagiarizing at ESPN, because the "oh yeah, well why didn't you fire Hoppes" question would prevent any real discipline from occurring.

    They've got a real chink in their armor over there.

    Oops! That's the kind of thing that can get someone fired.

    This is the 21st Century version of hearing the guys on the radio shuffling the newspaper at the console while they read your story word-for-word without credit.

    Actually, if I'm that fired headline writer, I'd be on the phone to an attorney PDQ after hearing about Hoppes' "lazy journalism" ...

    The first comment on the Deadspin post on this (linked in GBMAD's link) is incredible.

    Sadly, the American public doesn't care in the least. They'll keep right on watchin' SportsCenter, and ESPN will keep raking' in its bazillions while remaining pompous and arrogant all the while.

    Maybe the public does care but the options are limited.
