Stephen A. Smith Loses His Mind On ESPN News When Talking About Favre

Sunday, July 13, 2008

I have no idea why ESPN News decided to get a soundbyte from Stephen A. Smith in regards to Brett Favre, but thank god they did. Watch as S.A.S. slowly starts to lose his mind when talking about the Packers' QB....



Is ESPN serious? This has to be some sort of cruel joke right??? "Hey, let's get the most ridiculous person in Sports Media to talk about the most annoying story ever! No way this could go bad!!!"

The coverage is definitely overkill mode, but good lord you have to settle down Stevie. If you think the coverage is bad now just wait until after the All-Star Break.

Somethings horrible has just happened here... I completely agree with everything S.A.S. has said.

I'm not going to die am I? I have been craving cheese doodles lately too. And my girlfriend says i've been yelling more lately. Oh god... I'm turning into him.

As ludicrous and out-of-nowhere the messenger might be, I think the Cheeseman is onto something. In short order, all we'll be able to say is Brett. Favre Brett, Favre. Brett Favre. brett favre Brett. Favre? BRETT! FAVRE!! BRETT?!?!?!

ESPN just can't get enough of the NFL. Everything NFL-oriented that they cover is in "overkill" mode.

I hate to say this, as it's only encouraging the normally grating Screamin' A, but I have to say I agree with him! Every single solitary word.

Up is down, in is out, wrong is right, and SAS is making complete sense. Who knew?

Yeah I know it's overkill, but it's the Summer people....what else are they going to talk about? Stephen should know that much....if this was about Allen Iverson he wouldn't be shutting up.

Jul 13, 2008, 10:44:00 PM  

I agree with Stephen A on this. In a related story, the world is ending.

dpb132: Skip & Stephen A. have been right about things in the last two weeks. If Joe D or AA Hates ESPN makes any sense, then cash in your 401(k)s 'cause the Apocalypse is coming.

Was that the Bizzaro SAS? Everything he said was right on the money and his criticisms of the media, especially mocking the way announcers talk about Favre was really funny.

What the hell is wrong with Stephen Smith? He clearly has a problem with Brett Favre. Michael Jordan retired and was not treated like this by the Bulls. Like Michael Jordan, Favre has earned the right to change his mind. And why is everyone putting so much faith in Aaron Rodgers...he's never even started. I just can't believe the Packers wouldn't be thrilled at the chance to take Favre back. Mindblowing!

Stephen A. might be right, but Darkmane deserves a segment bitching about Brett Favre before SAS does.

"Its naueasating, it makes me want to throw up, it makes me sick to my stomach..." - SAS

Best way to get your point across: Say the same exact thing three different ways in sucession.

He's irritating, he's annoying and he makes me want to throw my remote at my big flat screen TV.

Anon.. the problem is.. Favre continues to waffle year in and year out. they are just getting sick and tired of the fact the Favre wants everyone to beg for him to comeback..They agreed to let him comeback after he held his crying retirement press conference and then he shafted the team and said no..

How long do we really need to put up with this song and dance.. I know Favre is a great quarterback and what not but seriously..This one is on him.. not the Packers..

Thank god ESPN has somebody who speaks the truth. I am tired of the white media always praising white football players. By the way white media do you actually think baseball players use more HGH than football players? If you do than you are retarded!!! God Bless Stephen A. Smith!!!

Dear God, I agree with Stephen A. If Brett wants to change his mind, he's entitled. If Green Bay wants to turn the page, they're entitled. He's under contract, they have his rights. Let them trade him if they want. Let's just move on.

I'm agreeing with Stephen A. Smith within 24 hours of CBS canning Billy P(ACC)er. Next thing you know, the Cubs will win the World Series.

He's a nut. I agree with him though. I hope Farve plays for the Vikes or Bears next season.

Lot's of people don't believe me when I say this but in print SAS is articulate, interesting and able to make a point.

However, the man should never be allowed to speak on live TV.

Quite frankly he gets too excited.

Count me in as well. Add
Favre to the topic of Kwaaammme Brown, as the only times that SAS makes perfect sense. This circus involving Brett really needs to stop. The excessive man love and now the excuse making that goes along with coverage of Favre have just gone on for too long. And to the poster who cited MJ, I'm no big fan of MJ, but the guy has 6 NBA championships and his arguably the greatest player of all-time (though he's 2nd on my list). Favre's great but he's not MJ either.

He is one of the best QB's to ever play the game, but like many stars, he's a complete Diva about himself. The team has come in second to him in his latter years, whether he's throwing up another critical INT in the hope of completing another miracle play, or doing that shovel pass/crap that SAS referred to.

DMac said...

Big fat monkey racist piece of shit didnt go ballistic when MJ unretired a half dozen times so I can guarantee you if Favre was black that wouldnt have been a big deal for him.
Of course, that dumb coon knows even less about the NFL than he does about basketball.

Favre should call their bluff and see how long theyre gonna keep his big contract as a backup QB.

The salary cap is to Favre's advantage in this bluff.
When push comes to shove, no way the Packers are keeping his contract this year to hold the clipboard.

Is Favre treated with kids gloves? Yes, so were Troy Aikman, Dan Marino who were flaming divas, Joe Montana and slew of others NFLers. This is the treatment you get in a sport where one player is worth more to a franchise than the 50 other players who are expendable pieces of meat.

Jackson is pissed off because black QB never got this adulation but I blame that on Culpepper, McNair, Cunningham and others having nice careers but not having GREAT careers like the other top 10 white QB;s.


That said, Favre is an egomaniac diva who wants to be called back every year one more time and try to pull one off. He wants to be the guy that the team needs to save them. Its an addiction just like the other one he had and that the media has glossed over.


You want to blame some fuckers for this shit? Dont blame Favre.
If someone craves attention and someone gives it to him, you blame the latter: the media. Without the ESPNs and other sports media with their homorerotic fantasies, you wouldnt have heard about it.
THey are the ones to blame for making this a big story.
And irrelevant pieces of shit like Smith are piling up to get visibility. Smith doesnt care if people like him or not, he wants to the publicity.
In that sense he is as much a whore and diva than Favre.
Actually he is a LOT more.

R. Enderle.....MJ didn't make the Bulls wait on their asses for months after the offseason to let them know he was retiring or not. He came back twice, the 2nd with a completely different team so your point is merely dumb. I'm sure if blogs were as huge as they are now 10 years ago, people would have ripped the shit out of MJ and the media's love affair with him.

SAS has the right to say whatever the hell he wants. He's a BASKETBALL ANALYST, why is ESPN even putting him in the position to spout his mouth off on this issue? ESPN proves once again they are incompetent on who to go for when it comes to sports analysis.

Add me to the list of people awaiting the apocalypse for agreeing with Screamin Stephen.

It is nauseating the amount of press the Favre 'story' is getting, it is nauseating the way the media fawns over the guy ,and it's nauseating the way every single summer Favre holds his 'I-might-come-back' press conferences and press releases.

I love the stand the Packers have taken with him - if you want to come back, come back as a backup. You retired, we filled your spot, you are under contract with us for 3 more years. We OWN you.

Thank you, SAS, for giving a national voice to the overwhelming majority of sports fans who are sick to death both of the media's love affair with Favre (what he said about Favre 'being a kid out there was dead on), and of Favre's incessant need for publicity.

Go away Brett...just go away.

I cant believe people are actually agreeing with the author of this blogpost. Did any of you actually watch the video????? How can you not see that ESPN is on overkill about this whole issue? There's nothing else to talk about this summer, two of the top sports are in offseason and baseball is still dragging on like always. ESPN absolutely pounced on this and will not let go for some time...

Eric said...

And let me say something about the SAS haters. This man is probably the ONLY analyst on ESPN that actually SPEAKS HIS MIND. The rest of them are given points of views in debates to talk about by the production staff. Be serious and shut the hell up about him being an awful announcer. If being good means keeping to a set script, then I shudder to think about how you all take in other forms of news...

Wow. I couldn't have said it better myself. I'm sure the Packers want to look into trading Favre to the Raiders, because Al Davis loves players like him.

Wouldn't it just be ironic if SAS finally said something that everyone agreed with, and ESPN fired him?

Normally I hate SAS, but I agree with him here. Actually, anything about the NFL is overkill now on ESPN.

R. Enderle you sir are a faggot. If you like calling other people names feel free to take this in the ass you douchebag. Favre has all the talent in the world but a far smarter football player would have won at least 2-3 more superbowls. Favre is great but he's far from the greatest that the media makes him out to be. Of all the great qb's he makes the dumbest more retarded mistakes of all time. Plus, year after year he has this retirement dance that the packers have to deal with. This is a multibillion dollar business and the organization needs to look towards its future and can't run its business at the whim of 1 player, its bad business.

Back to you you douchebag fag R. Enderle, just because you dislike SAS you go with the 'coon' card, you couldnt come up with something original you assface? Let me see, I'll just go with the racist blast, thats the ticket. C you next tuesday R. Enderle, C you next tuesday.
