SportsFilter: The Friday Huddle

Yeah, Montana's coach wasn't too shabby either.

Still I do think both coaches played a major role in their success, and I do think the Patriots would be just fine without Brady.

Lady Gaga Will Perform Super Bowl Halftime Show

Superbowl halftime shows haven't ever been about music. They are about flash and glitz and using a popular artist to maximize viewer share. Lady Gaga fits in well and I doubt any of her hard core fans will notice that the venue or acoustics impact her lip-synched autotune karaoke in any major way.

Kevin Harlan's Epic Radio Call of Monday Night Football Interloper

Oh, and yeah, Kevin Harlan has kept me in my car in my driveway listening to football games. Westwood One is lucking to have him.

Ditto. Harlan and Esiason are the number 1 NFL broadcast team in my books.

Kevin Harlan's Epic Radio Call of Monday Night Football Interloper

The only thing more painful than the televised game was having to endure Berman listening to himself talk while missing a good portion of what was taking place on the field.

Sure wish I had listened to the Westwood One audio feed and will probably do so for any future Berman dates.

Yikes! The League definitely needs to take some meaningful action on those hits.

Once again, when it is Brady or Brees taking those hits or anything close they are called each and every occurrence.

I can understand no penalties being called when Newton or any other QB rushes head first through the line into a pile of defenders. Allowing head shots on the guy because he's tough and doesn't whine loud enough or frequently enough to establish influence is bad officiating.

Troy Aikman Blasts Fox Hiring Skip Bayless

Talking intelligently about sports? Oh, he's definitely shit...but that's not his real job.

Wasn't aware he still had a show. Do people watch it?

I'm not totally against shtick in sports commentary. Don Cherry often manages to blend shtick with meaning in NHL broadcasts some 25 years after he was certifiably senile.
There are many others across sports who do the same. There are others who ruin the game to the point viewers switch to another contest - Bayless fits here.

Sure hope FOX doesn't use him during game action.

Troy Aikman Blasts Fox Hiring Skip Bayless

I'm with Aikman.

I find Bayless and his cohort's shtick boring and pointless. I must admit that I've never endured more than about 45 seconds at once in developing this opinion.

I could care less whether Aikman, Bayless, or anyone else is gay, bisexual, or otherwise.

Aikman is really good at what he does.

Bayless is not.
