Edition 30 “Get off the Air”

So earlier today I had a free minute and put on ESPN and the show SportsNation was on.  This show is a newer show on ESPN2 and airs at 4 PM on weekdays.  There are essentially three hosts.  These are Colin Cowherd, Michelle Beadle, and the fans.  The actual premise of this show makes sense and is a way for ESPN to utilize their highly used website of ESPN.com and include as many fans as possible in relation to the show.
There is one major problem.  Colin Cowherd seems to be uneducated on sports!  This guy has opinions, but they seem to have no substance.  He just talks and talks, but seems to ramble on about nothing. Now I know he is a radio sports host and probably does have his fair share of knowledge.  Let’s not forget about his big time radio show “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” that airs on ESPN Radio (another show which I am not a fan of).  But there is something about this guy that I cannot stand.  Stick to the PTIs and Around the Horns ESPN.  And let’s not forget about your bread and butter Sportscenter.
Please keep the “Herd” on the radio and off of the tube.  Even Rome is Burning is a more appealing show than Sportsnation.  I would rather sit and watch Jim Rome rip on people than watch Colin Cowherd try to entertain the Sportsnation on my precious and scant time to watch television.
At least Michelle Beadle is good looking.  That is about the only thing that this show got right. 
ESPN, you are still number 1 in my heart, just keep Mr. Cowherd off of the television lineup and on the bench..
Stayed tuned for Edition 30

  1. Rome is terrible. as soon as he comes on I turn the channel. Haven’t watched him in years. Cowherd sucks too.

    The whole SportsNation premise is the wrong way for ESPN. It just moves further into the “entertainment” and further away from the “sports.” My only hope is that they are using it as a means to get all of the frivolous shit on one show. I doubt it though…

  2. I am not a fan of Rome either..I still can tolerate him more than Cowherd..ya if ESPN is moving into this entertainment direction like MTV did..there could be major problems. Just stick with what you are good at, “Sports.”

  3. Come on. You watch because Michelle Beadle is hot.

    By the way, I would rather watch Cowherd than ever listen to the Cowboy do Reds games or Alan Cutler do anything.

  4. Rome is classic. JRIB isn’t that great, but he’s hilarious on the radio. J. Stew provides most of the entertainment on Rome’s radio show, but he’s way better to listen to than Cowherd.

    He’s no Mo Egger though..

  5. I think “Edition 30” is a good stopping point for labeling which edition you’re on…

  6. So we are all in consensus that Cowherd is tough to listen too..and Matt..maybe I will stop with the Editions?..who knows

  7. The only times I like that show is when there is a guest host…I agree and I think Michelle has more sports knowledge than him or at least knows how to communicate it! oh yeah and Rome needs to get beat up.

  8. I hate SportsNation. That crap belongs on the E! channel.
