    Looks like a news reader when talking football...just a plain misfit.

    He's too much full of himself. He's also not that funny. Can't take the guy, to be honest.

    I agree and it's nothing to do with politics - O'Reilly would look just as pompous and out of place - Olberman just thinks he's smarter than everyone else when he's not.

    NBC's Sunday Night Football staff sucks except for Madden and Michaels.

    Get rid of Collinsworth, Costas, Barber, whoever else they have. They suck.

    Guys, really. Is there anything you can just, I don't know, tolerate?

    I tolerate Olberman - by not watching.

    Olberman is a bitter and nasty person. I find it hard to laugh at his stuff when I know his TV persona, at least where it relates to sports, is all fake.

    So then: who is enjoyable/watchable/knowledgable/tolerable etc.?

    I'm sorry for being seemingly contrary, but this site is incessant in trashing whatever there is to trash. I imagine all the account receivable accountants/plumbers/lawyers/dentists/etc. on this site have their detractors.

    Tiresome, gents and ladies. Improve it or move on. Otherwise, be CONSTRUCTIVE.

    I soooo miss Boomer and Tom Jackson on Sunday nights. I am not the biggest Tom Jackson fan, but he and Berman still are the best by far at doing the highlights of the game.

    Wow....another Olbermann thread? Why not just resurrect the 400 other Olbermann threads rather than start another.

    That exactly what it is (and why I can't stand him, too). Well put.

    Yeah. That's why he became a STAR as one of the lead anchors on SportsCenter.

    Awe, thats not nice. Madden is definitely a parody of himself. But you gotta love him. He's sort of that uncle you see at Christmas who "has lost a step or two", but you have so many great memories that he was a part of, that you just humor the hell out of him.

    Olbermann has a degree of sports knowledge that is seemingly quite high. His problem is that he simply does not fit into the NBC format.

    Do you have any idea how stupid a notion it is to think people's problem with a SPORTS writer/commentator/guy is really his politics? Go look up the politics of most of the top 'named' sports guys. They are almost all liberal.

    I like Keith, but wouldn't put him on a sports program. He's simply to divisive politically and politics should have nothing to do with spots.

    That said, you nailed it.

    A global warming cover on Sports Illustrated should have been recent enough for you to realize who silly your argument was, but you made it anyway. Genius, really.....

    Nice effort to deflect. But really, the issue is your assertion that the majority of the sports media in this country are liberals. You're the one making the argument, therefore the burden of proof is on you. So prove it, or go kick rocks.


    What you're saying is that those who don't like Olbermann, and who also happen to be conservatives aren't factoring in his politcal beliefs when forming an opinion of his appearances on Football Night in America. :rolleyes:

    The point about the Sports Illustrated cover wasn't offered as the only proof of something, but as a reason why the timing of your argument is, to be kind, poor. Now, if you want to claim that the media, including the sports media, isn't liberal, you feel free to keep living in that fantasy world you've created for yourself. Me, I'm not about to get into this in a non-political forum.

    Do you honestly believe that a conservative would look at Olbermann objectively in any setting? Do you believe liberals evaluated Rush Limbaugh's stint on ESPN objectively?

    And here again, if the SI cover story (that you probably didn't read anyway) represents the whole of your argument, then it's a pretty weak argument. SI has had thousands of cover stories...yet the one that you view as "liberal" somehow represents the magazine's history. Again, prove your assertion or shut up.

    I'm not making a political argument. This is not a political forum. As I said, if you're really foolish enough to think that conservatives oppose Olbermann's sports show only because of his being a liberal, go look up the major sports journalists and look at their politics.

    You go look it up. If you think conservatives or liberals don't allow their political feelings to color how they view Olbermann and how they viewed liberals, then you're the foolish one.

    Get out much?

    You go look it up. If you think conservatives or liberals don't allow their political feelings to color how they view Olbermann or how they viewed Limbaugh, then you're the foolish one. Get out much? It's basic human nature. Sure there are a few out there who possess the zen like qualities to be able to be objective, but they're the great white whales.

    Anyway....Olbermann shouldn't be on NBC. I don't think the Likud moonbat otherwise known Al Michaels should have made his little cracks about Kerry during the fall 2004 MNF games and I don't Limbaugh should have been on ESPN.

    I don't have to look it up, slick. I already know the answer. You're the one denying the obvious. As for what conservatives allow, I, as I noted earlier, am very politically 'conservative', and I couldn't care less what Olbermann's politics are when it comes to what he's doing on the sports show. He simply doesn't fit the format. As for "basic human nature", get a clue. Hollywood is overwhelmingly liberal, yet conservatives still watch television and attend movies.
