I placed the "notability" tag on this page as I can't come up with any basis for this individual's inclusion on Wikipedia. I don't believe this individual's works are widely read, and writing columns on a sports Web site is not enough under the "notability" criteria and the bio is nothing more than a brief summation of his column history alongside material from his sportsline.com bio. Contrast this individual with other much more prominent Internet sports writers such as Bill Simmons. I'm certainly willing to listen to arguments to the contrary, however. 70.22.96.29 01:27, 29 March 2007 (UTC)

This page should have been nominated for deletion under the AfD process rather than PROD. The initial author also should have given an explanation for removing the deletion tag, although I would venture to guess that it is self-explanatory in that the author feels that the individual is noteworthy enough to merit a page. I would tend to disagree without more evidence of noteworthiness or popularity as a writer, the NPR interview is a good start but the Anderson Cooper transcript is a mention in passing and is essentially worthless.

Who the hell is this guy and why is his entry so long? 7 July 2008 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 76.107.149.120 (talk) 15:28, 7 July 2008 (UTC)

good question. Pretty sure he fits in that "write your own entry" class of people who feel important if they have a Wiki entry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 149.79.35.227 (talk) 15:32, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Maybe you guys get it now that he has his own national network radio show? 2600:1004:B14E:E425:4913:DED9:D810:44C1 (talk) 01:27, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

In the Politics section, change "self described Southern White Conservative" to "self described Radical Moderate."

The reference in the article states that FS1 thought of him as a Southern White Conservative, not that he thinks of himself this way. He has used the "Radical Moderate" description to describe his politics repeatedly. He has never described himself as conservative.

Below are links to posts on his site where he refers to himself as a radical moderate:

Sentence 2 of 3.2, "Controversies, CNN "Boobs" comment," quotes Brooke Baldwin saying:

"[W]hen I first heard 'boobs' from a grown man on national television (in 2017!!!) my initial thought bubble was: ‘Did I hear that correctly?'" with source 16 (http://thehill.com/homenews/media/350936-fox-sports-radio-host-on-cnn-i-believe-in-the-first-amendment-and-boobs) cited.

The only quote of Baldwin in source 16 is the tweet by her:

"That was... I just... it was one of those thought bubbles "did he actually say that on MY SHOW?!" Note to men -- that is never okay. #smh"

The quote in the article resembles but doesn't match the only relevant quote in the source. Pls replace former quote with latter. Thoreaux (talk) 03:48, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

Note: The quote exists but it is from an oped later. So i've cited it and added to the article Galobtter (talk) 14:26, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
