Make an Appointment Dr. Jack: Colin Cowherd
Colin Cowherd has his own radio show on ESPN radio from 10 AM -1 PM. He is also on a show called Sportsnation on ESPN. Somehow he is scheduled to have a series made based on his life that will air on CBS. He is clearly spreading worse than the bed bug epidemic. Sometimes good things happen to bad people in life. It's approriate that the post beneath this is about the wonderlic test. The same wonderlic test questions were read aloud on his radio show a few years back. That had to have been a thrill for MZone right? Well you see Cowherd read the questions without giving any retribution. Yea the guy is plagaristic dickhead.
If you have ever heard Colin Cowherd's radio program you would know how much he likes to create controversy and unsubstantiated rumors. Just ask A.J. Burnett who is suing him.
Cowherd attributed said struggles of A.J. Burnett last season were due to “the worst divorce in the history of divorces.” Hours later, Burnett’s agent, Darek Braunecker, said, “Colin Cowherd has no idea what he’s talking about … not in the process nor was he ever in the process of getting a divorce.” (via Big Lead)
Ask Cliff Lee who was a recent victim of Cowherd's lies.
After being told of Cowherd's ridiculous accusations - namely that he "doesn't like Texas," "doesn't care about Texas," and "mails it in" against bad teams - Lee responded with comments on the local ESPN website and in the Star-Telegram's morning edition:
"It's a lie," Lee was quoted as saying. "Write that. Are you writing? Write that it's a lie. I did not say that and nobody close to me would say that. Either say who the source is or shut up because I am saying it is not true."
Anyone remember what he said about Sean Taylor?
"Sean Taylor, great player, has a history of really really bad judgment, really REALLY bad judgment. Cops, assault, spitting, DUI. I'm supposed to believe his judgment got significantly better in two years, from horrible to fantastic? 'But Colin he cleaned up his act.' Well yeah, just because you clean the rug doesn't mean you get everything out. Sometimes you've got stains, stuff so deep it never ever leaves....They were after a guy, not stuff....I think you have to be naive to think it's random. " (via D.C. Sports Blog)
Yea he was wrong about that and never apologized.
Cowherd also like to pick on the little guy. Just ask the website the Big Lead. Cowherd encourged listeners of his syndicated show to flood the sports blog called The Big Lead, which got so many hits that the Web site went offline for about 48 hours. He along with others in the main stream media are becoming more desperate to create news and be more controversial because sports fans are turning to blogs for more reputable information.
ESPN can continue to apologize for the guy's behavior and lack of ethics but they keep writing his checks. They continue to give him more airtime with shows like Sportsnation and segments on Sportscenter. ESPN approves of stirring the pot because they want ratings. You should have your TV and radio off before you tune into Cowherd. We hope Colin Cowherd makes appointment with the good doctor, we promise he will be quick and painless.
