Found March 07, 2013 on Kissing Suzy Kolber:
I try to ignore Skip Bayless stuff as best I can. I already have to focus overmuch on Peter King. There’s only so much overt media trolling one can consume before being forced to stab their eyeballs, ear drums and frontal lobe. Bayless is also fairly easy to ignore if you really want to. He’s white noise, hardly central to what’s going on in the league. But enough people (actually, a lot of people) hate-watch Skip Bayless that there’s great demand for him to be brought low. And that’s ostensibly what happens to him on First Take today. Richard Sherman big-times and insults him with great rancor. Yet it’s still not as enjoyable as it should be. Possibly it’s because Richard Sherman is also a dick. The whole incident also comes off as kind of calculated. For one thing, this outburst will further help build the RICHARD SHERMAN: TRASH TALKER persona that the Seahawks cornerback is always eager to cultivate. Moreover, Bayless doesn’t give a sh*t that someone is spitting invective at him...

Skip and Dick: Richard Sherman’s latest egomaniacal rant

Richard Sherman made a name for himself in 2012 with strong play and a stronger mouth. With an impressive season behind him the Seahawks corner has allowed the chatter to grow to new levels. He has a lot to boast about on the field but his off field behaviour of late is nothing to be proud of...

Richard Sherman completely rips Skip Bayless on FIrst Take (Video)

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman appeared on ESPN’s First Take and completely ripped co-host Skip Bayless to his face during today’s show. Sherman took a page out of Terrell Suggs’ book and didn’t hold back at all from telling Bayless what he thinks of him and his opinions. I really give Sherman a lot of credit for staying calm while laying into Bayless. Below...

24 NSFW Black Dudes Going In On Skip Bayless After Richard Sherman Battle

First Take was making waves once again yesterday. If you didn’t do your daily Bleacher Report or Worldstar scan you might have missed the footage, but Seahawks CB Richard Sherman went off on Skip Bayless. Black guys who were tuned in to First Take immediately took to Twitter to either attack or defend their boy Skip. We saw terms we never heard before. Apparently Sherman was ...

Richard Sherman Lets Skip Bayless Have It

I have made it no secret in the past--I do not care for Skip Bayless or that worthless show he participates in each morning called First Take. You can blame the debate format if you want, but the fact of the matter is this guys says things simply to get a rise out of people. He has nothing intelligent or even relevant to say most of the time. He is either controversial or quiet...

ESPN 1st Take: All-Pro Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman vs. Skip Bayless (VIDEO)

Check out video All-Pro Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman confronting Skip Bayless. Apparently, Sherman believes that he’s better that everyone.

Richard Sherman destroys Skip Bayless on First Take (VIDEO)

You had to see this coming. On Thursday, Seahawks “All-Pro Stanford Graduate” Richard Sherman went on an epic takedown mission of ESPN’s First Take’s resident loudmouth, Skip Bayless.  And it was as glorious as it was awkward to watch. (via gamedayr.com) For years, Bayless has been goading players from the comfort of his First Take pulpit, and with the program becoming more...

Richard Sherman tells Skip Bayless he’s “never accomplished anything in life” and other ether on “First Take”

On ESPN’s “First Take,” Skip Bayless is very good at his job. Stirring up controversy and causing people to react strongly to his “sports opinions.” Thursday on the newly launched afternoon version of the show, Seattle Seahawks corer Richard Sherman appeared. Sherman is a talker and has already begun trash talk for next season by trolling Darelle Revis on Twitter, proclaiming...

Is Richard Sherman Really “Better At Life” Than Skip Bayless

If you don’t like either Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman or ESPN’s master debater Skip Bayless, than this video may be completely mind-numbing [although you can enjoy the fact that Stephen A Smith sits silent the whole time]. The argument stemmed from Bayless’ belief that Sherman is not an elite NFL cornerback, certainly not in the league of the New York Jets...

Richard Sherman Calls Out Skip Bayless

Few things in sports media are more satisfying than an undressing of ESPN’s resident blowhard Skip Bayless (this appearance by Mark Cuban is the greatest example). Unfortunately, ESPN tailors First Take in a manner to avoid such dress-downs, thus relieving Skip of any awkward confrontations. Skip didn’t escape so easily today, as some First Take producer decided it’d be a good...

Bill Simmons' critique of First Take exposes ESPN's identity crisis

Thursday afternoon, Richard Sherman of the Seahawks blasted Skip Bayless on ESPN's traveshamockery that is First Take.  The clip traveled around the blogosphere as everyone gave an 'atta boy to Sherman for doing what they only wish they could do themselves - stick it to Skip Bayless.  Let's take a look, shall we? While yes, that clip is glorious... it's...

Congressman Peter King Is Going To Fight A Kickboxer On Saturday

Who can forget Congressman Peter King (R-NY) standing up in the face of terror and holding hearings on Muslim “Radicalization”? If it doesn’t work four times, hold a fifth hearing. Ward-Gatti had nothing on King-Islam. Much to King’s dismay, mosques (80% of which are jihadist according to him) are still in our midst so he’s decided to take on a new opponent. A New York...

Vikings, Titans expected to pursue Mike Wallace

Mike Wallace is the top free agent wide receiver on the market, and a few teams are expected to pursue him. The Miami Dolphins have been mentioned as the team expected to make the strongest run at Wallace, but new reports say the Minnesota Vikings and Tennessee Titans will also go after the speedster. According to NFL.com’s Jeff Darlington, who used to be a beat writer covering...

Who Wants To Help Me Beat These Dead Horses?

Johnny and Megan have 4 words for ya...THUMBS UP MIKE UTLEY! We are all painfully aware that, until conference tournaments really start to pick up steam next week, we are still caught up that barren wind-swept moonscape (Peter King alert!) of a sports dead zone. It sucks. There aren’t enough food post ideas to help carry us through. Unfortunately, ESPN is in the same boat with...

FOX Sports 1 Network Promises Even More Free Live UFC Events

People are pretty funny. For years, a lot of us have been openly begging and praying for any of the major networks to step up to the plate and start a 24/7 sports channel that could rival ESPN. NBC, bless its big greedy heart, has given it a shot, but mostly to hilariously awful results. That’s what happens when your best show features Peter King and Mikey Florio pretending to...
