Your Most Hated Sports Pundits
 
Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless go without saying, but who else really grinds your gears?

My top ones, in no particular order, have to be:

Pete Prisco
Darren Rovell
Ken Rosenthal

I don't mind Prisco, but sometimes he just says shit just to say it (but I guess you could say that about any of them)

I also dislike Omar Kelly (Dolphins beat writer)

Not familiar with his work. What's your beef with him?

he essentially refuses to talk about the Dolphins QB situation, he always tells people "look at the timeline" as a response to questions that he previously answered, pats himself on the back when he is (rarely) right, etc

he just comes across as a douche

Seconded. Biggest idiot on ESPN, and that's saying something.

Pretty much every Browns beat writer is awful. Terry Pluto offers some pretty solid, concise insight, but he's a columnist.

Not only do I think he is a shithead on TV but just going back a bit....He went to high school/college in Pocatello, Idaho where I was primarily raised. His brother (who also is a huge chode) owned one of those "rent to own" furniture/appliance places in town and was also a baseball coach in my junior league.

Anyways one day, Merrill shows up with his brother and everybody was pretty impressed and wanted his autograph on their baseball hats or whatever. He was signing for his brothers team, no problem but when kids from other teams went up to him (myself included) he wanted $50 to sign a hat for a bunch of kids. I remember him telling me and my buddy to "go ask your parents for it, I'm sure they have it".

I just remember him standing by the snack shack with his shirt off acting like a badass in front of a bunch of 12-13 year old kids lol.

Fuck that dude for that and for the shit he spews on TV.

Stephan A Smith
Trent Dilfer
Mark Schlereth
Jemele Hill

I don't really hate Brousard but he is never right, ever

That dude gets ripped apart on Twitter on a daily basis and it is hysterical.

Besides the obvious of Smith, and Bayless I really hate those two nerds that do the NFL draft coverage, Todd Mcshay and....cant thing of the other guys name right now

Edit - Mel Kiper, I cant stand that guy

I will back Mark Schlereth. Can not fucking stand that guy. Almost every personality on the NFL Network also annoys the shit out of me.

Dan Plesac, Jeremy Roenick and Bob Errey are a few others on my shit list.

Stavie Steelo 10/11/12 10:43 AM

Bill Simmons, my friend loves him. I think he's a douche.

Jeremy Aaron 10/11/12 10:43 AM

Mike Lupica. He strikes me as somebody who doesn't really even like sports, but loves to hear himself talk.
