NFL  > General NFL  > NFL network guys Drinking during the Sunday Night Game?

So Marshall, Deion and Michael seemed tanked! Long day for them, maybe tired, but I get the feeling they were tipping 'em back during the SNF with Cowboys and Skins.

lol,....i doubt they were drinking, but marshall looked ~pissed~ when he had to do another 90-minute post-gm./show after the dallas gm..

Way pissed like he couldn't believe it and why don't they just run tape at that point? I also saw Faulk was fined for something? Can't find details.

Michael used to be a big partier. He was a great WR, maybe Top 5 ever at that position but I wouldn't put it past him to tip a few back. I don't think Deion drinks? Not sure about Marshall?

Maybe that's what happens after your 3rd "5-Hour Energy drink"?

Would need to get drunk if I had to watch those mouth pieces on Sunday night after a full weekend of sports.
Just what I don't need at 10PM Sunday night more hot air from old retired players/coaches.

Maybe even worse is listening to Costa's at half time, that guy needs a mussel.

Why must our sports be contaminated with politics? If I want politics there are sites for that. Let's not "cross the streams". Was on a chat board last night during the game and the Redskins subject came up naturally after the editorial, then somehow the name thing became "same sex marriage". Really? During a live NFL chat some clown drags in a hot topic like that? Maybe Choice/Pro-life next? Obama-care? Peace in Israel? How about we stick to the subject at hand? Madness.

I agree with your Post 100%. I hate discussing Politics or even Religion because they are both touchy subjects and you will never change anyone's opinion on what they believe or think anyway on those 2 subjects. At least with sports when you argue/debate which player is better at a position it can be proven on the field with wins and stats so one can back up their debate with that. Bob Costas is very smart and would be tough in a debate and he knows it so nobody will ever challenge what he says so he pretty much is free to say anything.

Agreed, sports are like the movies, escapism at it's best.

Then again I read an article today where more and more experts keep bringing up 'historical inaccurate' things in FICTIONAL movies, the world is going to hell in a hand basket for sure.

Today it ain't a story if it's clean, must have dirt or create controversy to get rating on prime time newscast.

Oh and slant it politically and/or religiously = ratings.

breaking news my arse

Can't speak to Costas' capabilities at all. I would say that he makes a living as a Sports Caster/Reporter. Please stick to what you know Mr. Costas.

He gets the liberty of an "open mike" for a show that is watched by millions and only ONE side is aired. Not really fair. Did Snyder get a chance at rebuttal (not a fan of Snyder BTW)?

IMHO folks are tuning in for football and not a lecture on political correctness. I spent 25 yrs in the military (generally not PC guys) and my name and heritage made me the usual brunt of hundreds of jokes. I'm in a group that is still a punching bag when it comes to the same stale old jokes. Similar to "Asian Driving" for example--always fair game. I don't expect my situation to change--ever! Nor do I get totally bent about the axle about it either. There seems to be two camps in the native-american camps; some who care and others who don't. We are a country of freedom of speech and majority rules so for the few that are bothered they are free to voice their opinions but if the majority still is not bothered then let it go.....for now. NBC, please stick to football, not interested in a lecture.

PS--Costa's views on gun-control were special too. Why does he think he gets a stage to view his opinion on the "week's" hot-button every Sunday. Maybe next week he can give us his views on Affordable Care Act? Con's of Child Abuse (Peterson's son; true tragedy), Monet and Renoir's skills as impressionism painters in the 19th Century--who gives a rat's hass? The latter being an example of who cares and where does it end....ok, thanks for the patience for my rant. Guilty as charged.

The one thing (I think) we can all agree on is that Hot Click chick is a cutey!

Well I think we could explore this fact further....this would require in depth analysis and all parties should be allowed to get their voice heard on this subject. Sadly I have no skills in posting any photos here.....<<sigh>>

This Site is better than ESPN's overall. I love the chicks aspect of it as that can make one lose their concentration at times :). The only thing I miss with ESPN is the Game Thread's as in while a game is going on people used to chat non-stop on that individual Thread. You had to deal with a lot of Trolls but it was still busy for hours with football chat too. Example: Colts vs Chargers Thread there would have a ton of people chatting right now non-stop probably close to 5K, that Saints vs Pats Thread would've had 10,000 Posts by now and that is no exaggeration.

Oh this guy totally 'fooned it up. He got his head so big it damn near exploded and he managed to talk himself right out of 2 jobs. Total clown. I feel confident that he could have done the same self-inflicted damage to his job at Fox as he did at MSNBC. Total egoist. Fool. What makes an ESPN sports guy qualified to tell us about global issues? He goes from understanding NCAA sweet 16 brackets to telling us how the legal issues at The Hague will influence EU voting on the Greek financial crisis? No freakin' way. Zip it Olberman

Yeah, I was away a year and the game-time chats disappeared? Miss that.

Back in a bit....gotta vacuum and pack a bit. Going to Florida tomorrow.

ESPN went to Facebook so it ruined the Game Thread Chat, they still get on average about 500-1000 Posts per game on each Thread if it is a marquee game from what I have noticed but it used to be 5K-10K on any big game. I don't like Facebook and never have had it and wont have it so I am here. This is more laid back here and has around 20-30 people cool people that chat regular about their teams throughout the day, almost like a roundtable which is very cool as well, no Trolls either.
