    Just for kicks, it would be refreshing to see a weekly show that gives an honest-to-goodness look at different athletes. I guess "they" don't think fans would be interested.

    It's on HBO. Costas and Gumble both have great shows, about that sort of stuff.

    I don't subscribe to HBO. Seems like ESPN could do something like that.

    ESPN caters to the lowest common denominator. It would never happen.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    True dat.

    Costas and Gumble are well worth a subscription to HBO.

    Plus, you get Rome, Deadwood, Sopranos, Six Feet Under, Curb your Enthusiasm.

    I already find plenty to watch on regular TV. Any more and I'd never get off the couch!

    Re: Jim Rome is a moron

    One of the great travesties in the history of broadcast "journalism" is that Jim Everett didn't beat the snot out of Rome when he had the chance.

    My personal hypothesis is that Rome spent a lot of time in high school getting stuffed in lockers and on the wrong end of swirlies.

    I'd jab rusty metal skewers in my ear canals before I'd ever listen to anything Rome has to say.
