Take Away the Interceptions…

I’m in San Antonio so I’m exposed to Cowboys apologists fairly often. This guy, his name is Chuck Miketinac on a local station says, “take away the interceptions for just one second…”
Then they cut to Dez Bryant and he pretty much says that Romo being at fault is a ridiculous question; then they speak with Sideshow Jerry and he spills his two cents, as in its not Romo’s fault.

Like throwing into double coverage regularly isn’t Romo’s fault.

I thought about an NFL team coming here and I almost don’t want it to happen. Mostly because the sports media here is so in the tank for the Cowboys it’s laughable they could even be called sports media. They should have the team P.R. Just put out releases based on their viewpoint of things. What passes for sports media here is so Cowboys oriented, they couldn’t cover anything else.

I laughed when the guy who passes for sports talk radio here, Mike Taylor went to Green Bay with his wife. Okay, get this. You’re in a city with more football heritage than just about any other. Aaron Rodgers, a top five QB is the starting quarterback there. You do sports talk radio, but you have to broadcast back to San Antonio because you are a one-trick pony. That guy can’t hold a job anyplace where the Cowboys are not the dominant team. Here in San Antonio, the casual sports fan is so clueless they think its great.

I tell you, the Cowboys take full advantage of the situation here. Sideshow Jerry won’t improve that team … and by improve, I mean hire a full time football guy to run football ops … until the fan revolts. The only way that guy responds to his rotisserie league lunacy is when it impacts his wallet. Cowboys fan needs to show their disgust with their wallet but they won’t. Meanwhile people like me continue to laugh about their team around the water cooler.

Yeah, my team isn’t any good. In fact, it’s bad. But you can tell Cowboys fan they are going to get to the final game of the regular season and choke it up. They will agree with you.

It’s like a weird form of mental abuse.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
