    Skip Bayless says he's 'suspicious" about scoreboard mistake

    What a tool this guy is. How he keeps his job is beyond me. Although he admits that the raven should have called a TO, he says "the more I hear the more suspicious I get". On ESPN right now.

    I used to think Bayless was the only reasonable person on First Take. Not anymore. This discussion about the kick is ridiculous and Bayless is acting like an idiot trying to make something out of nothing.

    Why are you listening / watching ESPN? They hate this team. I never watch / listen to that station. Not worth it.

    Yeah Bayless "the more I hear the more suspicious I get"...suspicious of you. Just how in the hell did he ever get a job in sports or journalism? Whatever it was he must still have some photos of it so he can blackmail his bosses. :mad:

    Bayless's job is to be controversial. He can't possibly believe half the crap he spews on the air.

    Anyway, BS-PN ceased being worth watching a long time ago.

    He also said "this enhances the genius of Bill Belichick"

    but lets only post the negative stuff so we can pretend a station "hates" a team :)

    I find both comments negative, and insulting. So what, BB's genius is "enhanced" because he's good at cheating (implied)?

    Embrace the hate.

    I don't care what the mediots accuse us and smear us anymore.

    Hopefully this fuels the team's passion further and makes our coaches and players more angry.

    Re: Skip Bayless says he's 'suspicious" about scoreboard mistake

    Bayless doesn't bother me as much as the moron on the show with him today- what's his name Rob Parker--I have that show on in the morning usually for giggles but when he is on hello 70's music:eek:


    Today's argument about the about the scoreboard--well I always thought the sideline markers were the OFFICIAL down markers not the scoreboard give it a friggin rest ravens choked--Pats practically gave them the game and they still couldn't win.

    Skip's job is to stir up controversy. I don't think he believes half of what he says. He's a real life troll that gets paid to do it. I'd love to have his job.

    Re: Skip Bayless says he's 'suspicious" about scoreboard mistake

    then a little later skip says "I dont know what I get tired of more on this show, the Brady hate or the tebow hate. I think I get more tired of the Brady hate"

    You see, you cant just pretend someone hates this team to get yourself all fired up. Skip has been a pats and Brady fan for a long time.

    Re: Skip Bayless says he's 'suspicious" about scoreboard mistake

    So let's get this chain of events correct according to Skip and other who said the Pats did this one purpose.

    Ravens player fumbles the ball out of bounds. BB calls up to the booth while at the same time calling defensive plays with the game on the line and tells them to give the Ravens a first down. Lee Evans drops a surefire TD pass. BB calls upstairs to make sure that the scoreboard, that he knows the Ravens kicker is looking at (using his mind-reading skills, apparently), reads third down even though there are plenty of other indicators on the field of what the correct down and distance it was.

    Why do any of you care? The head coach of the other team called it a non-issue.

    Move on.

    How come no one has investigated that old guy from Buffalo Wild Wings down in the irrigation room??? He clearly has to be capable of pulling of this type of shenanigan....:D

    Look, it's really very simple. If the kicker is rushing out there, for whatever reason, and you have a time out you use it!

    When and why did you think that Skip Bayless was reasonable? He's the same mountain out of a molehill contrarian I've always known him to be.

    What in the world are you talking about ESPN hates the Pats?!?! They love every Boston team. They are located in Bristol and a third of the anchors on Sportscenter are Boston die hards, and another third are Ex Boston players! Wow...

    Skip is a moron though. So is Steven A Smith, Colin Cowherd (Who is a huge Pats fan), and many many others. I try to stay on NFL network and MLB network.

    My first thought when I saw Skip's name was, Who cares? It's Skip "Tebow" Bayless for crying out loud!

    Re: Skip Bayless says he's 'suspicious" about scoreboard mistake

    Many years ago on the Rome is burning show (I think it was 2003), Skip actually said that Anthony Wright (then QB for the Baltimore Ravens) was a better QB than Brady. Rome actually tore into him but he wouldn't Skip wasn't backing off.

    That is the day I tuned out Bayless.
