    Richard Deitsch ranks his top 10. Some interesting choices...

    Dino Costa has more power than half that list

    Let's do an SJ version of this.

    That's a pretty dreadful list... IMO...

    He does? How so?

    I've heard bits and pieces of his show. I enjoyed his Friday night gambling segments. Aside from that, it was mainly him telling me how great he is.

    He mentions AWoj and says he "has 370,000 Twitter followers" as if that's proof of his reach... I like AWoj, but his inclusion on this list is absurd.


    Adam Schefter - 2.1 million followers
    Peter King and Chris Mortensen are both over a million...

    Including former athletes on this list is a huge reach. I love Barkley on TNT. How does he have power? How does Bradshaw have power?

    In the context of that list -- on-camera people only -- Barkley has immense power. If he goes away, that show would have a major crisis on its hands.

    I don't give a shit about twitter or the power of twitter, but don't you have to filter out all the fake twitter accounts before you list numbers as evidence of anything?

    Well, the only reason I brought it up is because he listed that about AWoj. It's stupid to say that Schefter is five times more influential than Jay Glazer because he has five times as many followers... But there are a lot of people in sports media who have close to or more than a million followers...

    Insomnia-curing linkbait.

    Half kidding but the thing with Costa is that he has strong opinions and has a loyal following. Some guys on that list are not opinion changers or shapers.

    Adrian Wojnarowski is the only interesting choice on that list, and that pick is so 2011.
