    Stark really surprised me he's great. But I had to chuckle when I saw Trent Dilfer on the list he's awful haha.

    Had enough? Supporter

    Fuck and Mark Saxon AND Jim Bowden?? I almost exclusively read baseball stuff so I guess I'll be finding a new home.

    Saxon was the Cardinals' beat writer and he was fucking fantastic so his firing actually sucks the most for me.

    "You can't lose games and expect to win games"

    He really said that on ESPN

    That loneliness is not a function of solitude.

    Curious to see if Scott Van Pelt says anything about all this on tonight's SportsCenter. He's one of the few remaining at ESPN that I actually really like.

    Crawford, Werder, Stark, Elmore, Bowden. All bummers. I assume Andrew Marchand is still there to find everything negative about the Yankees he can though

    Haven't paid much attention to ESPN since they stopped giving a shit about hockey after the 04-05 NHL lockout.

    Dilfer may have said dumb things at times, but he was a solid color guy. Would rather listen to him than majority of the other color guys ESPN uses for football. But then again, they have a lot of really bad color guys for football

    I'm never happy when someone loses his job. And before I tease him a bit, I do hope Dilfer finds new work.

    But I'll never forget him saying the Patriots dynasty was dead and they were a weak time. That quote happened two Super Bowl wins ago.

    In my eyes, Cold Pizza back in 2007 is the moment I pin point to the downfall. The lame wanna-be hip commentary. I started to notice that piece of shit Skip Bayless. Ugh. Now it's Stephen A. Smith who I hate the most. That's also when they started to go away from reporting sports, and try to be a "sports TMZ".
