Skip Bayless owned on TV

Jalen Rose calls out Skip Bayless on air for his trumped up high school history (VIDEO) | Ball Don't Lie - Yahoo! Sports

Never understood why ESPN ever brought this idiot on board. I refuse to watch any show with Bayless. It seems he always takes to polar opposite side on topics just so he can be controversial. (Wilbon as well)

Glad somebody busted his lying ass and smeared the poop in his face.

Re: Skip Bayless owned on TV

i saw this last night and almost fell out my seat from laughing so hard. Jalen is awesome. I like how Skip tries to deflect it, "lets talk about this later"....lolololololololol. Bayless is a f*cking joke. Id like to be on the set when they went to commercial.

He's always been a clown. Does anyone actually take him seriously?

Re: Skip Bayless owned on TV

Here's my rambling take on Skip. First of all, what is this talk of him not watching games? That's not true at all. He watches more games than probably anyone I know. He's up all night watching multiple games. To say he doesn't watch games is wrong. He's obsessed.

His opinions of course are controversial and I don't agree with a lot of what he says. But, unfortunately, I think as much blame lies in the hands of the producers of First Take who encourage his ramblings. And there are ratings issues behind it of course. Still, I think they could and should tone it down. It's a personality they've basically created that doesn't really, in my opinion, the true qualities of Skip Bayless. In a different setting, such as guest hosting on Mike and Mike he's been much more subdued and well worth listening to. But on First Take...well, I don't even watch the show anymore quite honestly. And don't even get me started on Rob Parker

As for Skip off camera? I only met him a few times. And well he doesn't really talk to you if he doesn't you. I mean he's not rude or anything. He's just not social. To the people he trusts, the people in his "inner circle" he's extremely loyal and supportive and will fight to the death for them. To others he's essentially indifferent. Unlike say Colin Cowherd who goes out of his way to make you feel welcome.

Jalen Rose on the other hand is one of the coolest former athletes/current on-air personalities at ESPN.

True, I've heard him guest host for Rome and he's definitely different.

Re: Skip Bayless owned on TV

Skip hates Lebron James and loves Tebow, but aside from that, I've got no time for the guy. He's obnoxious.

Re: Skip Bayless owned on TV

SS I heard the same things. Supposedly he's pretty cool and decent with the staff and so forth. It's just the on-air personality is so unlikeable.

I was trying to compare he Cowherd this morning in my head. Cowherd I dislike greatly but mostly because I think he has a lot of stupid opinions. But I don't think he is just a creation for ratings puroses. His opinions seems to eb genuine. Bayless just comes off as completely ingenuine and fake with these takes. Almost like they tell him which side to take and he marches along dutifully.

My problem with first take is they go off topic to focus so much on skip. I mean why not call it the skip bayless show?

Re: Skip Bayless owned on TV

If Skip was worried that he couldn't get his message across on Twitter then he shouldn't have posted it in the first place

Re: Skip Bayless owned on TV

I watched a lot of this, but I had to pause it to comment. Jalen makes the point that he doesn't like that Stephen A and Skip cross a line and disrespect people. I agree with that. Then, this happens:

Skip: "He gets paid how much?"
Jalen: "So, based on how much I get paid you should be able to disrespect me?"
Skip: "He's out in the public domain, man!"

Wait...what are we talking about here? We have a 25 minute segment because Jalen hurt Skip's feelings yesterday and he felt attacked by Jalen. Okay, how about this Skip, "You get paid how much? You're in the public domain, man!"

Done. You lose. You don't get to argue that what he gets paid and the manner in which he applies his craft makes him fair game and then take offense when people take shots at you. Man, this whole thing somehow made me hate Skip more.

EDIT: Just finished this video and Skip did say you can call him out on his opinions. However, if you can go on tv and say anything about an athlete, why can't said athlete treat you the same way? I want to know how what he does every day is different than what Jalen did to him.

Re: Skip Bayless owned on TV

Is anyone else severely annoyed by Stephen A Smith? Anytime he comes on tv I feel compelled to switch the channel.
