    Rome Is Burning

    How is Roger Lodge always on the discussion panel? What has he done ever to qualify himself for discussing pro sports on national television? Am I missing something? Does he have a column in some other part of the country?

    I'm watching this, and so far I've heard him mention that Alex Brown should be an MVP candidate b/c defensive players get shown no love, and I want to scream into the TV "That's why they have defensive player of the year you schmuck!" Then he said Oregon's a better team than Notre Dame, at this point, one of my eye balls popped out of the socket and I had to change the channel.

    They should have a show on ESPN called "Prepare to be Annoyed!" With commentators Roger Lodge, John Clayton, Joe Theisman, Paul McGuire, Larry Merchant, and hosted by Stephen A. Smith.

    Should add Michael Irvin and Shannon Sharpe to the panel.

    You and two others are the only ones watching that show.
    I am guessing Rome and his wife are the other two.

    Oh come on, Irvin's not that bad, certainly not on Theisman's level. And with Sharpe at least you have the lisp to entertain you. No matter what he says, you can always mock him with your friends when he's done talking, you don't get that with those other guys.

    And, you can add the entire cast of Inside the NFL.
