Anybody out there hate Stuart Scott?

the bud hot seat is pointless, and the gatorade highlight reel is cheesy.

i agree that a good many of the folks in the cafe fall outside the target demographic.

yeah, yes...

Ah Stuart Scott. I've got a great story about him. In the 7th grade about 8 years ago we had career day and wouldn't you know it one of the careers you could choose for the day was sports broadcaster. I got to school early as I was part of the tech squad.(Geek Alert) Well STuart Scott shows up for breakfast that they were giving to the speakers before any students got there.

I got a chance to meet with him, listen to what he had to say and get this: he asked me on my advice on one of his sayings he was working om "true dat" I said get this: "dont use it." He didn't.

He happens to be a really nice guy but as far as anchors go he's not my taste. I like Scott Van Pelt better.

He is one of the reasons I decided to become a broadcaster by some of things he said in his lecture and for that I am eternally grateful. ;-D

Stuart Scott Still Most Definitely Not White, http://www.thesportsrag.com/008_Stu_Scott.html .

I get annoyed bye Stuart Scott.

The story on this link is hysterical. BTW, it is a parody website. Not real news.

"Dont let the Door Hit cha' where the good Lord split ya" That is a great way to be on TV and basically say get the "F" out. SS says it all the time, however I am sure he as well as Berman have quality writers on their staff that supply the one liners and jokes.

I also agree that his schtick is PLAYED. It was funny in the mid 90's but now it seems dated.

I agree with "Jackass" star Steve-O in the sense he appeals to the casual observer not the hard core sports fan. Who is next to post? Wee-man???

I don't hate SS as much as others do, but he's definitely not good. He's really not that bad as a gameshow host (Stump the Schwab, Teammates), so he should probably stick to doing that instead of SC.

I DESPISE Chris Berman. How that guy has a job...I'll never know. Some of his nicknames are cool. It's fun when you do them at times...mix one in here or there. But this guy seriously gives EVERYBODY a nickname. Just a couple of nights ago..."Winnie the Pujols"..."Langerhans needs Longerhands"...it gets ridiculous. He uses them ad nauseum. One of the stupidest he's ever said was "You say Houshmandzaduh, I say Houshmandzayduh"...honestly buddy, it doesn't matter how you say it, what matters is how he wants it to be said. Lastly, his voice is horribly annoying. I'll repeat something I said over at the FFC: Back back back back back back...the f away from the announcer's chair.

Berman's absolutely horrible. It's hard to hate somebody without really knowing them, but Berman's getting there. He's given me hours of hell watching him.

I have 2 problems regarding him:

1. On Dream Job, anyone that tried to act like him got shot down. If it's good enough for him, why not for the candidates??
2. He hosts every single thing on that channel.

I absolutely love SS! (and I'm not joking). He has his style. Best phrase: "Ooh nana upside your head!"

I think it's a unique approach to sports commentary. Why be like everyone else? Pave your own trail. I'd take him over any cookie-cutter commentators anyday! If you don't like him, don't watch him.
