Default ESPN's Around the Horn

Just watched the final segment of ESPN's Around the Horn and I must admit I was shocked. For those not familiar with the show, it pits 4 newspaper columnist from different areas of the country debating hot sports topics of the day on a talkshow. Usually it's the same 3 or even 4 columnist every day. Each columnistreceives points for good responses to a chosen topic. It's all in fun as the winner gets 30 seconds to discuss anything he wants at the end.

Well, today's "winner" was J.A. Adande of the L.A. Times. He began his commentary by statingmany people are upset about the allegations of dog fighting that occurred at the property of football star quarterback Michael Vick. What Adande claims to confuse him is the hundreds of pro athletes and coaches throughout sports that go deer hunting and that is supposedly O.K. He wantsto know why one is O.K. while the other is not. He wants an understanding clear across the board about those poor animals!

That commentary amazed me. I know the guy resides in L.A., but to compare dog fighting to deer hunting? How incredibly stupid can you be comparing apples to oranges? I know it's silly, but thinking like this burns me!I've debated the hunting topic with members of PETA and other organizations thru newsprint and/or face to face, but Adande's comments are among the most absurd I've seen. I had to email him with a reply after I collected my thoughts. I felt better. Feel even better know that I've vented here. Thanks!!!

I missed it, but he is an idiot if he evens mentions both in the same breath. Another young idiot city boy that thinks he had a lock on reality when he should just shut his cakehole and talk about things that he may have an inkling of knowledge about. Idiot.

I guess he missed the memo about how many hunting shows ESPN is involved in (even though it'sless than it use to be). I hope this isn't the new "look and feel" of ESPN.

Wile i do not dog fight i wouldnt call anything stupid i dont know and understand fully.. call me whatever yall want.. crazy.. whatever but i refuse to put someone down for something unless i have been there and know what its about.. same with chicken fighting or bullfighting or whatever.... anyone who calls something stupid that hasnt tried it or at least seen it and knows what its like and about shouldnt knock it.. thats MY opinion on it.. also YES they are somewhat alike subjects and u can compare them slightly.. they both include animals and the death/wounding of animals ( even tho in very different ways).. but im not trien to start anything.. just some thaughts
