    I think he can get through this Round but going against Tiger in the semis will be a killer.

    Whos Now, who cares?

    Nothing against the thread but I just hate ESPN and all the stupid things they come up with. This thing should be on ET and not ESPN. I guess when I turn on the tv to watch ESPN i'd like to hear about the actual sports scores and sports news and not whose autograph is worth more or who sells more shows or whatever they talk about when it's time for "Whos Now".

    I keep running into this: I start mildly interested when they talk about it on Sportscenter, but then after describing the notes about the two people in question, they immediately cut to Jessica Biel and Kevin James to discuss who should win. I become so horribly offended and disgusted that I turn it off on the spot.

    This is almost, almost up there in manufactured importance with the BSpy's and the daytime emmy awards.

    Yeah, they ask them who should win, Peyton or Dale Jr....

    I'm sure Jessica Biel knows all about Peyton's accomplishments and I bet she really knows her NASCAR.

    Is 50 Cent going to discuss the next one?

    Sad to see what has become of a network that 15 years ago was one of the most cultural hip, trend setting, must-watch channels around. Dan and Keith in their prime, Craiggers pre-late night show, long before hacks like Stuart Scott rumbled, bumbled and stumbled into the sports desk.

    What happened? Right now it's about John Miller/Joe Morgan and the PTI guys and that is just about all. Actually I love the NFL analysis show with Jaworski where they break down tape too, and at some point they were trying out an NBA variation of that show which I hope returns this fall.

    Who's now? is Sportscenter's crown jewel of horrible ideas to show that Sportscenter isn't just about sports which makes no sense.

    I actually watched this debate(I had to put my brain back into my skull afterwards and crank the bottom part of my jaw up). And they basically said that Peyton won, but it was very, very close to Dale Jr. cause Dale is da man. You know even though hes never won jack and wouldn't be nearly as famous if his dad hadn't created a larger than life persona that his son could ride in on. But I digress.
    If you truely want to say who is now then no one deserves to be metioned in the same thought process as Tiger and Peyton. They win and they are in main stream media. Nobody else has that sort of combo. However I still maintain this whole thing is dumb.

    This is such a joke, LDT is nothing compared to Tiger Woods. And yet they let jokers on the show. Seriously before his overrated record breaking season, even some serious fans wouldn't have recognized. Tiger woods is everywhere.

    Wow that girl is so annoying.

    Peyton just won the Superbowl.

    Oh yeah and this Tournament thing is dumb.

    This is ESPN saying "hey we gotta fill the airtime somehow." They can only show Royals vs. Rangers highlights for so long.

    Yes it has yet to occur to them that maybe they should talk about the important stories for more than 3 minutes. They had an interesting article about the big 3 commisioners on the website the other day, maybe they should have made a segment about that but no, we have a stupid poll voted on by mostly people who don't even watch the sport on a regular basis.

    ESPN is a joke.

    Hey! There is nothing wrong with Ranger highlights. In between Who Blows and Who the hell cares tournaments ESPN has...they hardly ever talk about my Rangers.

    ESPN sux.

    All of two people on this board got that reference.

    Also, I don't see the big deal about this. So they debate who's now? So what? It's kinda fun, isn't it? You don't HAVE to watch. But you will. So why shouldn't they have it on? Also, you know who's now? Jessica Biel...there is no one else more fitting to debate the merit of "nowness" than Jessi Biel...come on...does GQ teach you nothing? Seriously though...isn't nowness supposed to transcend sports?

    Why have Sean Salisbury and John Clayton debate who's now when they think T-Pain is a very painful kind of technical foul.

    Yup they have become trash. Even Outside The Lines seem like exploitation sometimes.
