The 2012 season is about a month old and already two things are very clear: I miss last year’s bullpen and last year’s “sideline” reporter. Sorry folks, but Jenny Dell is not really doing it for me.

Praising Rage Against The Machine ESPN gets criticized with great regularity. Much of the scrutiny is deserved. Segments like, “Who’s Now” on “SportsCenter” feel forced. I shake my head when Skip Bayless argues Aaron Hernandez’s fried chicken entrée could be a harbinger of trouble ahead for the Patriots. Lastly, Herman Edwards‘ rants lay somewhere between […]
You thought “Sox Appeal” was cancelled? The laughable Red Sox-centric date program may have unceremoniously ended, but the stigma lives on. In fact, it permeates throughout the entire network.

This comes only days after Kathryn Tappen announced she was leaving for the NHL Network on the Toucher & Rich show (a move this guy told you about months ago — terrible kept secret). And rumors continue to percolate about Heidi […]
Oh Danny-boy I have never been one to kill a columnist. No matter how zany their take is, I’ll really let a writer reach before calling them a hack. Mainly because as a columnist you are asked to provoke thought and debate on the reg – and that is easier said then done. I give […]
Today on The Rundown with Ryan Hadfield, I spoke with Boston Globe and Boston.com’s media columnist Chad Finn.
