    Weak & impotent.
    Does everyone from the Washington Post check their balls at the gate when signing on to ESPN?(except Feinstein)

    GS's opinion on ESPN's coverage of Bobby Knight was stronger on a less important atory

    News flash: ESPN is too sensitive to allow its ombudsman to have teeth.

    WHitlock rips two people, he gets fired.
    Irvin rips genetics of a whole race and he keeps his job....

    You expected something statesmanlike?

    No chance.

    ESPN to George: "Thanks, now go back to that bar you always name drop in your Sunday dreck for a little while."

    Not understanding this:

    Williamson said the network tried to cover the Irvin situation as a news story "as we would with any other public figure."

    Did ESPN have this story on its rail at all this week? Did anyone see it on .com? Don't recall it being discussed on sportscenter/outside the lines/PTI/etc like 'a news story.'

    Yeah, that's complete B.S and Solomon should have called them on it. He's better than that. ESPN seems to have done everything short of hiring a hit a crew to take out anyone else who talked about the story in order to bury this thing.
  9. for solomon that was pretty strong. seriously. i expected to see solomon pull a mccarthy or ignore it all together...
  10. I was actually thinking the same thing. George saying ESPN's response was "not sufficient" qualified as a Whitlock-esque beatdown.

    McCarthy in today's McPaper re Monday Night Football was another blowjob. He's clearly trolling
    for a position.
