(or a mod could delete it)

I noticed, in the best/worst espn personality thread, a lot of you dislike Jim Rome.

Now I can't let this gem get lost in the few pages of replies, so here it is.

Jim Rome gets what's coming to him.

That's a classic (and I'm old enough to remember watching it when it originally aired). I don't mind Rome most of the time but this was one of his classless moments!

As a former Rams fan I always like to comment on the Everett/Rome incident. Rome was/is a dick, but Everett was a total wuss and deserved the nickname. I remember one game, I think it was a playoff game against the Giants, where Everett was getting blitzed and instead of trying to scramble or stand in the pocket and take a hit, he dropped to the ground in the fetal position untouched. I lost all respect for him after that game and so did the media.

I always see that clip and wonder what happened after. I figure the interview was over, but what was said of the incident?

It would be fun to Email Jim Rome everyday, and find different ways to "come hard" and remind him he got beaten up.

"Dont call me Chris"
"OK, Chris"

There was some controversy about whether or not this was staged, I think. Still funny, though.

Whatever the cost it seemed to work. i know EYE had never heard of Jim Rome before that......He certainly wasnt a nationwide radio host by any means. It almost makes my cynical mind think he sued or settled and that money(along witht the 15 minutes of fame) gave him his jumpstart. Like him or hate him, he has become quite popular..
