    Default Jim Rome almost beat up

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9HNgqQVHI_8

    I just found this on some other sports forums that I browse and had to share it with you guys...since pretty much everyone who has any knowledge about sports knows Jim Rome is a complete idiot.

    That is still "classic" after all these years. My dad actually seen that live back in the day when we just got ESPN2. Pops came running up stairs hollering some dude just got slugged on the TV. Before, nothing like that ever really happened on the tube.



    As for your blanket statement, "everyone who has any knowledge about sports knows Jim Rome is a complete idiot"....Well, making blanket statements like that doesn't do too much in presenting your own IQ!

    For being a complete idiot, I think he is doing pretty good. Like Bill Walton, you can't take everything that he says as gospel and reallize that most of his schtick is for "entertainment purposes only". Anyway, acording to moses, I must not know anything about sports.

    I had never seen that before at all. Can't believe that flew under my radar for so damn long.

    I guess a complete idiot would be the wrong thing to say about him seeing as how he has his own show now. (who watches it anyways?) He's an arrogant jerk who thinks he's more important than the athletes hes interviewing (he's not).

    Jim Rome is just a guy who talks about sports on ESPN here.

    Jim Everett is a former NFL QB. And Rome keeps calling him "Chris Everett", and if I recall correct that is a female tennis player. I haven't seen or thought about this in a long time, but that's what I remember from it. Someone correct me if I"m wrong.

    Now that is something I think most of us can agree on.

    Yeah, apparently there was a female tennis player named Chris Everet at the time, and the reference was meant to be a putdown.

    Rome was completely in the wrong, and has always been an arrogant ***, but you do have to admire his refusal to back down. Alas, there's a thin line between bravery and stupidity...

    I feel old reading this thread. Hard to believe that people don't remember or know who Chris Evert is. Either that or no-one watches tennis.

    Let me guess without reading, it's Chrissy Everett, back when Jim was a real jerk as an interviewer. Amazingly now interviewing is the one thing he seems to do very well, it's hard to imagine him goading a guest like this anymore.

    edit - yep

    Ditto. This is not something I would consider vague or off the radar. Evert was a tennis superstar.

    I can't believe there are people over 25 who don't know about this. It's the first time I even heard of Rome, which is probably why I've always thought of him as a no-talent ***-clown.

    Jim Rome a genius at marketing himself. Ever since that incident his career soared.

    I respect the hell out of him.

    I wouldn't put it beyond Rome to do this to a guest that is smaller then him.....but I doubt that he would do it again to a guest that is bigger then him.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I agree with you Kegboy - some of you are either really young or you were living under a rock

    I'm getting really old, and some of you are really young. That video was big, big news when it occurred. Rome was actually a much bigger jerk back then, he's really cleaned up his ways

    Tennis is probably my 2nd favorite sport to basketball especially since the new Ana has burst onto the scene.

    That was my EXACT reaction. Yes Shade, there was a Chris Evert. Holder of innumerable tennis titles.

    As for Rome, why the hell doesn't he just speak English. An average sports fan just turning in wouldn't have a freaking clue what he was talking about. Clones - sheesh !
    The best exercise of the human heart is reaching down and picking someone else up.
