    Without the media...what would we all talk about. We are the media in a sense. Where do you come to get your information??...so wouldn't we be hating ourselves??

    The funny thing is the professional sport broadcasters have as much disdain for the blogs and posts by fans on sites like this as we do of them...

    Re: Rep for EVERYONE who hates the media ...

    Lets look at ESPNs football analysts for a moment. Shawn King - Bum. Sean Salisbury - Bum. Merril Hodge - Bum. Chris Berman - Senile. The only analyst on ESPN that is worth a grain of salt is Ron Jaworski.

    And lets talk for a minute about their Patriots, and now, Cowboys bias. It makes me want to vomit! Every year it's the same thing, "Tom Brady is the second coming of Jesus", "This is the year Tony Romo wins that big game", "Bill Belicheat is the greatest coach since Vince Lombardi". It's disgusting!!

    ESPN has zero credibility in my eyes. Its not about reporting news anymore. It's about sensationalism and Jessica Simpson. Plus every Sports Center is like watching Evening at the Improv with these anchors who think they are comedians.

    *end rant

    I suppose this maybe the differerence between good and bad media.

    Some stuff we cant live with out, like the facts.

    Some so called expert opinions we can.

    There are some opinions I like and many I dont, on the web, in forums, at work, but man I do hate bad media.

    Disdain? It's absolute hatred for me. I haven't seen a prediction yet that's better than 7-9. Most are 5-11 or worse. Rams get no respect. That's ok. Just wait.

    Venting about the media...

    Hmmmm.....

    I've never tried it myself, but maybe I should. You see, there's this guy who writes for a newspaper in St. Louis. Bernard something-or-other I think his name is... He kind of annoys me. Not that I've ever mentioned it before.

    Seriously... if there is an easier job in the world than sportswriter, I'd like to know what it is. Watch sports... write an article or two... no accountability whatsoever.

    Oh there's accountability all right .. When they do get it right once in a while, they are only too glad to hold themselves accountable ..

    Re: Rep for EVERYONE who hates the media ...

    The media at one point was a viable option, but as of late to keep up with bloggers and what not, they've thrown the rules of being a reporter out the window. They do no fact checking of any kind. There biggest wish in life is to be an insider instead of reporting the news properly and efficiently. They take their grudges out on players and malign them. Instead of being unbiased they're biased. I know enough professional athletes who are my good friends where I could do the same thing that they do. I could be an insider, but that's not what being a reporter is about. It's supposed to be about reporting and event from your point of view, not opinion.

    I hate ESPN, but since there are really no other Sports Network, with the coverage of sports that they have I'm forced to watch them. I think they would be considered a monopoly. They have exclusive rights on the NFL, Basketball, and the MLB. I wish the NBA would go back to NBC, they did a much better job.

    What's funny is a couple of my friends are T.V personalities on ESPN, but I still can't stand that network because of the way thay favorably and unfavorably exploit athletes and personalitlies the don't like.
