Default the idiot known as rome

was flipping thru the channels and for some reason i stopped and watched a bit of his show. anyway they had an ex mofia guy on there who engaged in alot of betting and paying off officials. anyway rome asked if he thinks any superbowl games had been fixed, the guy goes he doubts it because of the high profile of the game but goes on to say the one game he thougt was fixed was when the qb was throwing the ball to no one but the competition. first name that came to mind was o'donnell

i would have to agree,, i don't see the relavance of evan caring what the media says. now i think if its a local reporter say from the gazete bashing them i might take knote of it,, other wise who cares. i think the only time i got ticked was leading up to the colts game this past season in the playoffs. you were so overwhelmed with the bias that it became almost suffocating,, however we took that and fed off of it and the rest is history. if the media is pro steeler or not has no bearing on my attitude towards my team... superbowl champs baby and if their not a fan,, they wish they were,,, go steelers,,

I listen to Rome all the time, and I think he's funny, insightful, and, above all, says it like it is, even when it's unpopular.

But he's asked lots of people about "the fix" because it's a hot topic, and everyone has different answers. Rome's take from day one has been (and I'm paraphrasing a bit).

"Do I think the Super Bowl was fixed? No. Do I think that the possibilty exists that it could happen someday? Sure."

Our local radio used to cover Rome and I hated him. Was happy they went to a new format.....until.....I found out Dan Patrick was gonna replace him. He is absolutely a horrible radio guy. Then he brings on Keith Oberman.....a political guy who can't stay on the radio for 5 minutes before he somehow equates olympic figure skating to the war in Iraq.

I like Rome.

His delivery is unique and irritates some people. Understandable. Even me at times.

Still I would rather listen to him then almost anyone on radio.
