Blind in One Eye[edit]

Vitale lost his left eye at a young age. Check this NYTimes article - I don't know where this fact should be added so I leave it to you... (talk) 18:55, 15 March 2009 (UTC)

what on earth is that first paragraph?[edit]

The NBA game in January 2009 is NOT the first Vitale's done with ESPN. In their early history, he did both pro and college games. See Miami Herald article at . Zigwithbag (talk) 01:32, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Missing 'Bias' section[edit]

I was directed here from the Criticism of ESPN article, which reference's Vitale's alleged bias towards Duke and/or the ACC. However there is no mention of that here, despite the existence of a cited quote by a head coach referencing the bias. I'm going to add the section, and borrow from the criticism article, unless anyone can tell me why that section isn't present.

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Dick Vitale/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

Dick Vitale never knocked Kentucky during his speech on ESPN. and he also never said he would coach at florida just to play against kentucky. What he said was that Florida was an elite program where anyone would love to coach, and that Donovan already has a great thing going that he built himself. He did say that if Donovan left he'd be wiling to coach Florida for $1 because it would be a great place to coach, not just so he could beat kentucky as the article says. Whoever wrote this sounds like an angry kentucky fan who doesn't like Florida, or Duke for that matter from what i read earlier in the article.
