Don't you think the super speed of what used to be getting the story but today is getting the first word in has accelerated this "personality as journalist" and thereby "journalist as personality" phenomenon? I don't mind hearing game-callers commenting on in-game performance but a measured, thoughtful analysis should be more than who can be more dramatic the moment after a game ends. It should be the the literary equivalent of unsportsmanlike conduct, and you're right, Dan, we should throw a flag.


Dan - It was very weird, and noticeable. There was a point in the 3rd quarter when the announcers' attitudes shifted from complete Romo-bashing to total Romo-adulation.

Andy - Andy, I think that's exactly right. And for some reason the "personality" opinion has more value than an informed opinion.
