Uhhh it kinda gets old after 3 straight weeks, that's basically the point. ;-) And you contradicted yourself there, stating that discussion has been going on for the past 3 weeks then whining about how that doesn't happen here? :-? :-°

I thought it was a very funny article. Extragerated yes. But I think it is a good deal of truth to it. Does anyone seriously believe that, with a man as calculating as Barry, there was no thought put into the Barry Sanders jersey or his shameless use of his kid as a prop.

Bayless is not racist, he is just a jerk who writes and comments specifically to provoke controversy. It is one reason he is such a nomad. I lost any respect I might ever had for him back when he was in Dallas. I lived there at the time, and he devoted a whole column to the "fact" that Scott Hamilton must be gay because he is a figure skater. It was garbage, which is all Bayless has ever been capable of. People like him and Rome are nothing more than the Rush Limbaugh's of sports reporters.

I saw it easily.

I despise Skip Bayless but thought he was on target with this article. I, for one, thought it was a good post.

I remember when Skip Bayless had a column in the Chicago Tribune. It was just a little side bar that ran for the length of the page on the front of the sports section. It was hilarious and I thought he was great at that point. However, I have read several of his recent pieces now that he is writing for ESPN and I really don't like him anymore. I also don't like him on First and 10, a show i watch on occasion.

Skip Bayless is to sports reporting as Brandon Funston is to fantasy experts!

Tabloid reporters have more credibilty than Skip Bayless.
the fact that ESPN even gives him a paycheck, diminishes ESPN's credabilty that much more in my book.
