    Now of course I myself value the ESPN opinion here just as much as anyone else does – I don’t.

    But seeing as the main afternoon shows are about to come up (Outside/NFL Live/Rome/ATH/PTI) thought we might as well keep all their reactions in one thread instead of having a thousand different thread about what Jim Rome/Merril Hoge said. No need for 10 "Jim Rome Rants on BB!" threads.

    Thank God for Roger Clemens though, eh? This won’t even be the headline story on 3 of those 4 shows today.

    Wow, I'm shocked.

    OTL mentioned it for 10 seconds quickly during the quick At This Hour quick story flash with the title "Specter wants more info from Goodell"
    after the second commerical break and mentioned how he wanted to know "Which games were affected, and if they were compromised".

    NFL Live opening segment? Zack Thomas. Second story now? Ocho Cinco.

    By the way, both Salisbury and the Schlereth both said they instantly thought of the Pats as for the team Zack will mostly end up with.

    That's what I thought of too. He's an older, veteran, excellent linebacker (or at least he used to be, not sure if he still is that great). I really don't know if he's a fit in the 3-4 (not positive, but I think that's why they cut him - because Miami wants to transition to a 3-4). But he sure seems like the kind of LB that BB would want.

    I'd love him.

    Know we want to get younger, but I can't pass this up.

    He may not be the greates fit for the 3-4 but we would be asking him to be a role player and not one of the starting 4. I think we could find a role that fits his skills, size, and our system.

    I'm sure he wouldn't mind being on a Super Bowl contender - just gotta hope that his concussion wasn't too serious.

    Number of times Jim Rome mentioned = 0

    Wow, I really thought the media would eat this up, guess not. :cool:

    Is it possible even the media is growing tired of the monster they created?

    I guess you can only beat a dead horse for so long before the carcass starts to stink.

    Tony says Spector shouldn't be sticking his nose in the NFL, and they don't need the senate to look into this. Said he should be cocerned with things such as Iraq.

    Wilbon says NFL can't police itself well enough and it's good to have this higher authority.

    I love how so many people are turning against Spector.

    Was this said in sarcasm, or was he being serious?

    He was being serious.

    Used the multiple player arrests as reference.

    Maybe the media is finally realizing that people just really don't care that much anymore. It's weird, out here in SoCal, I'm noticing the interest waning even here. That's especially odd since Chargers fans HATE us. But yeah, at this point they have the same sort of mentality (wrongly, I'd argue) that they do with steroids in baseball. Yeah, they think it was cheating, and they think it ****ed up the integrity of the sport, but at this point it's just beating a dead horse.

    It's okay, Wilbon has proven repeatedly this year that his first objective, which is entertainment, far outweighs his responsibility to make any kind of sense. The fact that he can't differentiate between players breaking federal laws and a couple of teams breaking some arbitrary league rules further bears this out.

    I never expect anything from the guy.

    Although I do pay attention, because unfortunately as Vrabel put it, most other people can't formulate their own opinions, and eat up everything ESPN tells them.

    I think if the Pats had taken care of business, won the SB, the reaction would be different. It would be a full-out attack on the pats and BB.

    I think people don't care as much anymore because of two reasons:

    1) The NFL season is over so people are worried about other things.

    2) The Giants won the super bowl so even though most people believe the Patriots cheated, they still feel like karma got them in the end and they were denied the trophy.


    If the Patriots had won the super bowl, I think this would be bigger news since the fans of every other team would want their championship to be taken away.

    I can't believe I am typing this, but you may be right...losing to the Giants might have been enough to slow this train down and shut people up.
