    I'm not gaga over her looks, but, she most certainly is a fine looking woman.
    Talent is God Given: be humble.
    Fame is man given: be thankful.
    Conceit is self given: be careful.

    Re: Female Reporter Exodus From ESPN

    There have been alot of their people leave due to money issues. If any of ya ever listen to the "Bob and Tom" show, they have a gal on there that has done work for ESPN in the past. Her name is Kristi Lee. She wasnt a big personality, but did quite a bit of work for them doing the x-games and such. But anyways, she used to say that ESPN stood for "Extemely Slow Paying Network"!
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    My wife is a fine woman. Erin and all other women for that matter are hopelessly flawed in comparison.

    But Erin is a better sports reporter than my wife could be-she'll always have that.

    Beadle and Andrews leaving are probably for bigger and better things. It's true that ESPN can be pretty frugal. Also, the people who worked there haven't exactly been enamored with the social life Bristol offers. However, ESPN has had some sexual harassment scandals in the past.

    Since you've decided to go down that road, let's pursue it. What do you see about her that makes her damn good at what she does? What sets her apart from other sideline reporters? What is it that sets her apart from Shelley Smith, Holly Rowe and Wendi Nix?

    Remember ESPN Radio's Fabulous Sports Babe? She was on radio and the early days of ESPN 2 in the 1990s. Definitely knew her sports but there was clearly a reason why her career never went beyond radio...
    Wow, I had completely forgotten about the Fabulous Sports Babe. I considered her the Roseanne Barr of sports radio.

    Ok, what makes her so terrible? Why is she undeserving of a job, and why does she deserve to be labeled a "bimbo." How is that fair?

    When did I say Erin Andrews wasn't deserving of a job? She certainly is. She did nothing that deserved a firing.

    As for being a bimbo, she's where she is because of her body, looks, makeup and hair coloring. I think we can all agree that Chris Berman isn't at ESPN for those reasons
