    Colin Cowherd

    This guy really has one for the Reds. What a pompous, opinionated, punk. Would love for him to interview Joey Votto and see Votto go all "Jim Everett" on the little pansy. Just another reason why ESPN is turning into a crappy network. And I thought I didn't like Jim Rome.

    What did he say? I can imagine whatever it was it was lame, he is.

    Re: Colin Cowherd

    He's been saying for weeks that the Reds are pretenders and due to fade. Controversy fuels talk radio listening and calling. Sounds like he's making you listen.

    mlh1981 summed it up on the Sun Deck.

    Listening to his radio show at the moment. Here's the basic premise behind his argument:

    --we feast on bad teams in a weak division
    --we drew a laughable interleague schedule
    --we can't beat the elite teams
    --Votto's peers don't think he's great. It's just us Reds fans that do

    It seems in every sport, at least twice a season fans need to be reminded of Colin Cowherd's ultimate goal: get people fired up & talking.

    I've said it before... he doesn't even believe half of what he says. It's his job to create controversy and get people talking about his show. It works like a charm, as fans routinely get upset with something he says. And here we are, another thread and he gets exactly what he wanted.

    Re: Colin Cowherd

    It's his latest attempt to draw angry e-mail that he likes to read and make fun of. He's truly an objectionable blowhard, and I do the only thing I can do, I refuse to ever listen to him. He was pantsed on his Votto bile back at the ASB by any expert he had on, so this is probably a continuation of his being embarrassed by his display that week.

    He also hates the Bengals. And, not infrequently, tOSU, based on various angry threads I have seen on those boards over the years.

    I think it's part of his shtik, and it is fairly contemptible, in my estimation...

    The kind of kid you always loved to see being beat up on the playground. I had never listened to him until recently. Contemptible is a good description, membengal.

    He really seems to have it in for the Midwest in general.

    I think there is a certain amount of truth to what he said, whether I like the way he delivers the message or not.

    One thing he knows for sure is that Ohio sports fans are overly sensitive and there are a lot of them and he milks that action for all it's worth.

    I hesitate to admit this, because, well, I felt silly afterwards, but I came across his show while stuck in traffic back before the All-Star break, and actually yelled at the radio as he made his "Joey Votto is NOT a star" argument through his sneering officious tone as a reason why it was right that Votto was passed up for the All-Star team. I don't usually yell at inanimate objects...unless Coco is having one of his adventures and it is my television that is...

    At any rate, it was a reminder why I never listen to him.

    I have visions of Cowherd sitting in front of a monitor googling "Cowherd Cincinnati Reds" right now just to see how much of a reaction he's getting.

    Colin.

    Colins a good 6' 1 1/2" tall and 190lbs... Not exactly a dinky dude.

    But Colin's show is a bore.

    He doesn't know sports. Has to rely on these tactics to get listeners. Guys in his line of work know sports better. He is a weasal

    He's not a baseball fan from what I've heard him blather about, therefore I let his opinion slide off my back.

    Talk radio is the suck 90% of the time
