Look Johny did this or that, then they'll have two talking heads debate over whether something he did or said can be completely construed left or completely construed right. We all need to realize that the dedicated sports fans matter little, they've got you looking and watching already, they need to create a buzz so that people who wouldn't know a nickel from a dime will watch.
TV Sports Networks have become the supermarket tabloids of Cable.
