It's hard, very hard, to sway him. And usually the best way to do it is to make it appear as if he came up with it all on his own.

But I deal with him so little.

Re: Colin Cowturd on Sean Taylor

I'm by no means a Cowherd fan. But at least he stepped up and took the responsibility to apologize (Even if a "frank" discussion helped prod his apology, kudos Smoot). I must admit, my first thoughts were that it was something from Sean's past that came back to haunt him, but I certainly wouldn't have made the statements Cowherd did to millons of listeners.

Who, why, or how won't bring Sean back or any comfort to his family, but I'm glad that my initial thoughts were wrong and Sean's past had nothing to do with this tragedy.

I haven't heard anything from Wilbon in terms of an apology, or did I miss something (I was out of town and off-line for a couple of days)?

Re: Colin Cowturd on Sean Taylor

I head the apology, and I came away unimpressed. He basically blamed Wilbon, Stephen A. Smith, Jason Whitlock and Antrel Rolle, saying that he talked to all of them before he came to his conclusion.

Kudos to you Smootsmack, although I must admit that Cowherd's admission that "no one at ESPN ever told him what topic to discuss on air" smelled rotten from the start. But at least he did react to whatever you said, and for that you get a sincere thanks from me.

I seriously doubt Cowherd reacted to whatever I said. Just a coincidence.

Re: Colin Cowturd on Sean Taylor

I don't want to let him off the hook for apologizing though. What if he had been right? That wasn't the issue. The issue was the hurtful, arrogant, insensitive way he broached the topic, almost belligerently questioning the rationality of anyone who disagreed with him.

He was and still is a jerk.

Re: Colin Cowturd on Sean Taylor

I used to listen to Cowherd because I was all about ESPN. Well one day I said this Cowherd guy gets on my nerves what else is out there. That lead me to find Shemon and Jdub on Fox Sports Radio. I think they are funny and a class act, that also led me to fin Steve Czaban who I think is awesome. Cowherd pushed his opinion on you too much, I like to sit back and laugh and get sports information.

Re: Colin Cowturd on Sean Taylor

Czaban makes Cowherd look like Mother Theresa. He definitely pushes his agenda/opinion on you. And you won't find a bigger a-hole. F Czaban.

I'm a Rome guy myself

Rome arguments are so terrible...but I can't get enough of his delivery.

Ever since I saw Schlereth try to do Jim Rome's gig in his absence, I really have a new respect for the guy's delivery. His sports related arguments are...interesting...to say the least.

The best is when Jim Gray sits in for Jim Rome. They couldn't be more different

Well it's fairly random as far as crimes go. What crimes aren't random? A bank robber picks out a bank, a mugger picks out a person, a car jacker picks out a car, a rapist picks out a victim, etc. The bottom line is Sean's past lapses in judgment or run-ins with the law had nothing to do with his death.

Poor Jim Gray looks like a deer in headlights when he subs for Rome. I know they're both reading from the teleprompter, but Romey is SO much better at it than Gray. My gosh. I'm almost embarrassed for Gray when he's out there.

Which was why I was so happy when the Rev. from Sean's funeral called out he media for bashing his past and using it as reasoning for his murder. "They ought to be ashamed" were his words. Good for him. Hit the nail on the head.

Unfortunate that the James Browns, Jim Romes, and SmootSmacks of the media world had to absorb that as well

I understand James Brown and Rome, but why did you have to absorb that? I'm pretty sure you didn't bash his past. Or did you just mean him generalizing the comments by just referring to those who based as "media?"

I mean those of us in the media who have to sit and listen to "The media this, the media that" like we're all of one mind.

Of course, being behind the scenes it's not such a big deal for me. But I mean Brown and Rome pointed out it's not about his past. And no one was like "I want to thank James Brown and Jim Rome..." But I see why they wouldn't it. It's not as effective to do something like that anyway.
