Once an individual winds up in Dino’s Doghouse, escape is virtually impossible…

Piers Morgan makes Jim Rome look like the best television personality since TV was invented.
The person responsible for making the decision to have this amateur lightweight replace Larry King on CNN should be fired immediately, and forced to give back all of their pay since they’ve been in CNN’s employ.
A train wreck since the first show aired — and a real genius move by the way, to invite Oprah Winfrey to be your initial guest, since Winfrey is never really seen on TV, heard on the radio, or accessed on the Internet too often.
There is nothing about Piers Morgan that anyone cares about. He is the least interesting man in the world.
If he was hosting a show about the English Premiere Football league I might take Morgan more seriously and believe he has a chance to make inroads with an American TV audience. But the fact is that with his horrible interviewing skills, his soft approach, and his British twang, Morgan misses the mark entirely.
Lastly, for CNN to go to the plate with someone like Morgan carrying a whiffle ball bat, going up against the FOX News heavy hitters like O’Reilly and Hannity who possess heavy timber in their hands…someone show me where CNN has even half a chance?
Piers Morgan is miscast as an American TV personality that people can eventually be attracted to.
His best bet is to give up the gig before he’s canceled (that’s just around the corner) and head back to the UK where his act is much more tolerated.

The very definition of style over substance.
This blowhard postures himself the next Lombardi, only problem is he doesn’t have Lombardi’s titles, respect, or pedigree.
The Jets have won and gone to the AFC Championship game the last two (2) season’s in spite of him — more than anything having to do with because of him.
A carnival barker more suited to working with the WWE than being a leading NFL man, Ryan’s Jets teams have been ill-prepared many times, have played down to the level of their supposedly inferior opponents, and have won many a game by the skin of their teeth, or the fortuitous bounce of a football.
Rex Ryan has embarrassed the Jets several times since he’s been their head coach. Outlandish Super Bowl predictions coupled with off the field scandals involving his wife on a swingers website, his players & coaches cat calling a female reporter at the Jets training facility, and overall, projecting an unjustifiable feeling of superiority over the rest of the NFL which seems amused by Ryan and his words more than anything else.
His players don’t fear him in the least because its more important to Ryan that they like him and think he’s a swell guy.
Bottom line with Rex Ryan is that he’s talked his way into the Pro Football Hall Of Fame on a regular and consistent basis.
He’s also been the apple of the NY sports media’s eyes…although that glow is beginning to wear off a bit.
What I hate mostly about Ryan is the perception of the big old dumb oaf that he gives off… a real Foghorn Leghorn character who people outside of the Jets organization laugh at – not with.

The above picture is thought of in many circles to be the face of sports radio in America. My question is this: How does someone with so little talent get paid millions of dollars a year? The Fu-Manchu is a joke, and every day he’s on the air with his horrendous radio show he gets exposed more and more as the bad actor that he is. His voice alone makes me want to punch him in the face. Anyone ever heard Jim Rome ad-Lib during one of his atrocious radio shows? Me neither, however, there is good reason for that. Are you aware that Jim Rome scripts his entire show? The entire show. As in, he scripts (or writes out) the entire three (3) hours he’s on the air each day. That’s some talent there, eh? He doesn’t so much do a radio show that features anything in the way of entertaining and or informative opinion with some well thought out commentary – - as much as he makes ‘statements’, with the same delivery and voice inflection, throughout the course of the entire three hour train wreck. Compelling? Tell me, what does Jim Rome actually stand for? Awesome radio segments? Tell me the last time you can remember Jim Rome saying anything that stuck with you for more than 2 seconds after it came out of his mouth? His show is a nightmare – and it is one of the worst representations of sports radio in the entire country - and his phone callers, or as he calls them; ”clones”, are the bad icing on the cake. These idiots take their cues from their fearless leader and script all their calls. There is no conversation or anything in the way of intelligent discourse on this hacks show, as much as there is a bunch of prepared statements, all laced with attitude and anti-social flavorings. I often wonder who the core audience of this idiots show really are? Are they the same people who get their political & social commentary from some of the heavyweight syndicated personalities around America? If they are, then they take quite a leap down in terms of IQ level, from say listening to a Rush Limbaugh, to then tuning into the Fu-Manchu. I would pay to have Jim Everett pummel the shit out of this wise-ass clown one more time, but this time I would insist that Everett finish the job. Rome is nothing more than a pre-packaged and slickly marketed con job on the American sporting public. His knowledge is extremely sub-par, his talk show hosting skills are downright laughable, and his callers and listeners are brainwashed lackeys who are unfortunately for them, stuck in sports radio hell.

My dream is to see Roger Clemens led out of a courtroom in Washington DC in handcuffs and leg shackles, off to serve a stretch for lying to Congress about his use of steroids. Like anyone who would ever believe that OJ Simpson didn’t murder those people, you would have to be a total assclown not to believe that Clemens not only used steroids, but used them well, and used them to great effectiveness. When former Red Sox GM Dan Duquette Â let Clemens fly to Toronto after the 1996 season, he knew what most in baseball knew at that time: Clemens was pretty much finished. However a few injections into his ass over the next several years made Clemens again one of baseball’s best pitchers. Then to see Clemens win two world series with the Yankees made him even more hatable. But lets back up, because before he won his second world series with the Yankees in the year 2000, we got to see a player in game 2 of that years series against the Mets, actually display a full-blown roid-rage episode where he took a sheared Mike Piazza took a bat and threw it at Piazza as he was running up the first base line in one of the more reprehensible acts in Fall Classic history. Incredibly Clemens after throwing the bat at Piazza wasn’t tossed from the game. Roger Clemens is not only a doghouse member, but he’s also one of the more stupid professional baseball players you’ll ever meet. He let his former personal trainer, Brian McNamee, inject his own wife with steroids, you guessed it – right in her ass. This all-world narcissist, Roger Clemens, also brought total shame to his life and his family, with the revelation that he was banging former country music star, Mindy McCready, at a time when she was 16 years old. He threw his former teammate under the bus when he told Congress that Andy Pettite must have ‘misremembered’ about Clemens steroid activities. His obtuse behavior in front of Congress in lieu of his steroid use and his pathetic defense during those proceedings along with his brain damaged legal counsel, makes me want to see Clemens take it up the ass one final time before it’s all said and done.

Charles Barkley is one of the most pathetic individuals in America ever to receive any sort of public accolade. Barkley is among other things, a racist, and a steppin’ fool idiot of massive proportions. Barkley needs a complete mouth transplant for two primary reasons. Firstly because the things he says are mostly irresponsible and reckless – and without any merit whatsoever. Secondly because for someone who sometimes gets paid to give his opinion, Barkley most times cannot be understood — because he talks as though his mouth is full of marbles. Barkley is looked upon by many of the dim-witted in America as some sort of a social trailblazer, a man who understands ‘regular people’. However a closer examination of this two-bit dope reveals one of the more phony and manufactured personalities ever to be granted a stage to spew his dumb-ass logic. Barkley has been both protected and prized by the sycophants in the media, mostly white sportswriters who do all they can to promote Barkley as some noble and god-like black man who keeps it real and tells the truth about the way it really goes down. In reality he’s someone who if not for the color of his skin would have seen his ‘career’ flushed down the toilet years ago. For someone who has lived a life filled with quotes that are completely inaccurate and totally misguided, as well as racist, it boggles the mind to consider that this dickhead somehow continues to be gainfully employed by those TV networks who cut him his checks.
