Found November 14, 2013 on Awful Announcing:
The last week or so much of the sports media world has been focused on the incendiary comments of KNBR sports talk host Damon Bruce, whose awful rant about women not being welcome in sports went viral.  The controversy has now died down and most people have already moved on in this 24/7 news cycle.  Bruce was suspended for two days but he has his normal timeslot back and is talking about sports again.   There was plenty of serious soul searching done by a number of people in sports about the barriers that exist for women and the male-dominated sports culture.  Bruce's comments hit a nerve that touched off a firestorm across the sports media. Examining Bruce's comments in detail also opens up the wider backdrop of sports talk radio.  I was shocked yesterday to see this quote from ESPN Radio SVP Traug Keller transcribed by ESPN's Kristi Dosh at a conference presented by SBJ. "If you're not getting in trouble once in awhile you're not pushing things en...

Interest is huge in Trumbo, but the Angels are trying not to trade him

Mark Trumbo, a 30-homer hitter, is by far the Angels' most coveted player in trade. They could solve some of their pitching issues if they would trade Trumbo. However, the Angels are very reluctant to deal him. Of all their players being talked about in trade, he's the one they most want to keep. Erick Aybar, Howie Kendrick, Peter Bourjos and Chris Iannetta also are getting...

Writer voted Mike Trout 7th in AL MVP voting

Mike Trout finished second in AL MVP voting for the second consecutive year. That’s bad enough in itself. What’s much worse is that one voter actually placed him 7th. Trout appeared on all 30 MVP ballots. He received 5 1st-place votes, 19 2nd, 3 third, and 1 fourth, fifth and seventh-place votes. Miguel Cabrera, who […]

NFL Game of the Week: Saints

The last time the 49ers were in the Big Easy, they were this close to hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. Alas, that endeavor fell short, as San Fran departed for the West Coast empty-handed after a 34-31 Super Bowl loss. Despite this failure, the 2013 forecast was bright for the Niners, as the team believed it had found a franchise player in Colin Kaepernick, and with most of the integral...

2013 New Orleans Saints: Players Win, Coaches Coach

So, which hitter will the Angels trade? General manager Jerry Dipoto said Tuesday that he was operating with no preconceived notions and is exploring all options in his quest to upgrade his starting pitching. Angels hitters who would bring the greatest returns are first baseman Mark Trumbo, second baseman Howie Kendrick and shortstop Erick Aybar. Kendrick, on the surface, would...

Drew Brees says Johnny Manziel 'can do it all,' can be NFL starter

Ever since Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel exploded on the scene in 2012, NFL scouts have been enamored with his playmaking ability yet wary of his 6-1, 200-pound frame. Manziel's 2013 campaign has put much of that concern to rest, as Manziel has moved up to No. 5 overall on the prospect rankings for the 2014 NFL Draft. Former Purdue quarterback Drew Brees...

Saints Nation: What to Expect Sunday Against the 49ers Based on Recent History

There's already been a lot of talk about revenge and payback when discussing the 49ers coming to New Orleans this week. The last two times these teams have played it's been close but the Saints walked away from the contests beat up and defeated. The keys may seem simple, but I think it's important to do two things: 1. match the 49ers' intensity and 2. take care of...
