Brand new Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans appeared on The Jim Rome Show this afternoon, and the experience was painful for everyone involved.
Twenty years ago The Ring magazine asked the question, after Mike Tyson's rape conviction, "What If Mike Tyson Had Never Gone To Jail?" The cover story posed a counterfactual in which Tyson did not receive a guilty verdict on his 1991 indictment for rape, confinement and criminal deviant conduct.
On the night we learned replacement officials are finally getting the heave-ho, Trey Parker and Matt Stone sent up Monday night's disgrace in Seattle alongside the brain injury debate in an NFL-themed South Park that also featured Tom Brady drinking semen and a mockery of Cee-Lo's shitty new NFL Network theme.
Green Bay Packers guard Josh Sitton, whose angry postgame tweets made him an Internet superstar (and quadrupled his follower count overnight), appeared on The Jim Rome Show today and remarked that while replacement officials "have no idea what they're doing" and stated he'd go on strike if it was possible, he…
When your company's website features a prominent "Is This Legal?" link on its homepage, it's probably in an industry engaging in some kind of questionable behavior.

Jim Everett, the former Rams, Saints, and Chargers QB (and current investment manager) is probably best known for charging at tiny loudmouth Jim Rome on ESPN2 in 1994, despite his long and fairly successful NFL career.

With all this business about Jim Rome leaving ESPN today, we figured we should check in with Jim Everett, the Rams, Saints, and Chargers quarterback whom Rome repeatedly called "Chris" on ESPN2 in 1994.

So Jim Rome is going from ESPN to CBS Sports Network even though the Worldwide Leader had offered him a multi-year extension for Rome Is Burning. According to a source, Rome wanted out at least in part because of comments made by an ESPN executive in Those Guys Have All The Fun, the oral history published last year.
The network had offered him a multi-year deal to stay, but Rome turned it down. Rome Is Burning had been on ESPN since 2004, and Rome is said to be getting an "expanded role" at CBS Sports Network.
