I would love to see Finebaum and Brando go away. Deny all you want but Brando is an LSU homer AS much as Finebaum is. Brando will criticize LSU you say. You didn't hear Finebaum circa 1990-2006. He roasted them at every opportunity. Both are equals save Brando having the Jerry Springer fest sometimes.

Everyone gets pissed off by him yet everyone keeps listening to him. He doesn't bother me because I know he hates LSU already and I choose not to even listen. Do the same. Football season is a lot more enjoyable if you don't watch coverage 24/7 to hear what some guys opinion is. I don't care what other people think. The media has no clue what they are talking about most of the time and its just a form of entertainment, not actual news.
What kills me is when someone bitches about the medias opinion of LSU and then they pull for Bama in a bowl game because it helps the media SEC suckfest.

I was watching the carwash yesterday to see Miles and not Finebaum. He was on a panel and called the Bama Tenn game the biggest game and rivalry in the SEC every year.
All things Bama are coming to an end. Take that comment. I am sure the Fla & Ga fans take exception to that. They think the Fla Ga cocktail party is the biggest game and rivalry every year. There are more TV’s in Fla & Ga then BAMA & Tenn.
Same can be said for Tex and Mizzou. Their fans will not put up with all the Bama hype and Finbaum BS. ESPN knows this and it will change. It’s all about TV sets and ad income for ESPN. They give a damm about BAMA Tenn. This is why the schedules will change.

I tuned into Finebaum a few years ago to see what all the hype was about and decided to never listen to him again. Let him pander to his fan base. The only way that ESPN will do something is if their views/listens decline.
I haven gotten to the point that I only watch ESPN for live games. Other than SVP the network has very little value to offer.

quote: He is an Alabama homer and is known for saying shite that will generate views. The fact that he has shite to say about LSU should tell you that LSU is a threat to Alabama, a program that has won 3/4 Natties. I'd say that him talking about us is a good thing.
he is a Tennessee grad and grew up in Memphis. Of course he talks about Alabama football the most. His show is based out of Birmingham and that's his target audience. He shite all over Alabama when they were bad and Auburn was good. That's when people like Phyllis from Mulga came to be known. He had a field day trolling Alabama during the Albert means saga. But at the end of the day, his job is to get good ratings. If he didn't spend more time talking about the home state teams, he wouldn't be doing his job.
