This is wildly NPOV. I don't know where to start, but the article probably needs to be re-written.

Please edit this entry.[edit]

I disagree totally with this entry. This is a slanderous encyclopedia entry saying nothing nice about a living legend like Sid Hartman. If Sid is as awful as this encyclopedia entry says he is, why would he STILL be on the radio and in the newspapers at age 95. Wikipedia should gain their credibility back and edit their entry about Sid.

This entry verges on slander. I have been reading Sid Hartman's columns since the '60s and always found Sid to be entertaining, accurate and truly and inside source for Minnesota sports. The author of this entry interjects personal opinions and attacks, certainly not the type of writing one would expect in an encyclopedia or dictionary. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 04:13, 26 March 2007 (UTC).

Personal friends?[edit]

It is insane to list each person's friends in an encyclopedia article. This isn't Facebook. Maybe this could be changed to regular guests on his show (if this is true)? Clerks. 14:41, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

Clerks, it's actually a bit of a local joke; in his radio appearances (and sometimes in print as well) he refers to sports figures as his "close personal friend". It's long since been a point on which Hartman is caricatured.
I'll rewrite.

Column defined[edit]

What is Sid Hartman's style of writing defined as? I haven't seen many sports writers that throw so many topics in one article. I am curious if his type of column is a defined writing style. --JAYMEDINC (talk) 17:06, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
