Default This is why I hate ESPN

Ignorant ESPN writers.

I expect this garbage from Sienna Miller. But this is a journalist with a major network.

That was an interesting opening line but overall the article was good.

"For a city that does not reconcile change very well at all"

I can't really disagree with that line all that much.

I've lived in half a dozen different places and let me tell you that Pittsburgh handles changes as well as any of them.

It was a cheap shot plain and simple. Hack journalism from a hack network.

No football writer is a bigger booster of Pittsburgh than Lennie P. - he grew up there and still has family in western PA.

Prior to ESPN, Pasquarelli served as a senior writer for CBS SportsLine.com, which he joined in 1999. He has also covered the NFL for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution from 1989 to 1999, the Fort Wayne News-Sentinel from 1985 to 1989, Pro Football Weekly from 1982 to 1985, and Pittsburgh Steelers Weekly from 1978 to 1982.

Pasquarelli is a Pittsburgh native and graduated from the University of Pittsburgh in 1972.

Hardly someone i would categorize as a Pittsburgh basher

As far as the comment, I did not move away from Pittsburgh until the early 80s and also still have family in the area, but I agree with Lennie and see nothing insulting about the comment. Pittsburgh is what it is, for better or worse

Based on what? Nobody at ESPN is friendly to Pittsburgh. It runs against their NYC based mindset.

I can't disagree with it at all!

It was definitely a shot at the people of Pittsburgh but one that couldn't be more true IMHO.

As an outlander who has visited several times over the years I think that comment is unwarranted and could more accurately apply to many other cities.

Can you say “journalistic sensationalism”….

Thank you. Sometimes people in Pittsburgh don't realize how modern their city really is. It's not New York or LA, but that's a good thing.
