    • Dear Jim, Regarding your affection and admiration for "Man-Ram": I understand how you feel, he is a good ballplayer....however to set a good example for today's youth...tell him to get a haircut...even BALD is better!! Thanx!! Jackmoreless



      Please tell Man Ram to get a haircut, for the sake of giving good example to the youth of America. He looks awful with his hair the way it is. Does he know that? Does he CARE about that???

      On another point, ask the "Greek Guy" to join your panel discussion on a daily basis. (Sorry, I can't think of his name for the moment). He gives a lively response to your questions and the few times that I've seen him he answers your questions with a sensible response, and has a great sense of humor.

    • Truly a Mike Lupica imitation

      Hate to tell you this ROME but for someone who claims to be smarter than his readers and knows what we are all thinking you display that you don't know jack. You totally blew the Roger Clemens story, first assuming his guilt when all you have is the word of a dope dealer and then not understanding the legal ramifications of witness tampering. If you listened to your own networks legal people you would know that anything along the lines of trying to get the drug dealer to say anything could be witness tampering. I'm really going to laugh when some nobody walks into court and says you and LUPICA are murderers and we get to watch you go to jail based on that. Shows how two peas in the same pod can so miss the story. Of course you and LUPICA both turned a blind eye to steroids when it was going on and now you both think your going to get away with taking the high road. BUZZ........ YOUR OUTmoreless
    • Worst 30 Mins on ESPN

      Rome is Burning is the worst Sports Talk show on TV. Jim Rome rarely relays in actual facts. Everyday he basically gives his own EXTREMELY BIASED opinions. He picks on the same people, i.e. Barry Bonds and Michael Vick, over and over. The guy is very arrogant and is rarely objective. Then to make things worse, he brings panelists on the show that often share is opinions. What is the purpose of bringing guests on that will basically say the same thing that has already been shared by him? Why not bring in guest that will debate his opinions? I am personally sick and tired of his whole format. The show is a platform to promote negativity about atheletes the he has problems with. The show could never be confused with INFORMATIVE Sports Programming.moreless
    • This guy has nothing good to say at all, and all he does is bash on everyone. But when he has a guest on the show all he does is suck up to that person. I also HATE how he doesnt like any other sport that isnt football, baseball, or basketball.moreless

      Jim Rome has nothing good to say about anyone and the only reason that anybody watches that show is to get the news in sports. He also hates any sport that isn't football, baseball, or basketball. He hates Soccer(and i mean REALLY hates) with a passion and doesn't like Hockey that much either. But when a guest comes on to his show Jim always acts like he is such a big fan of that particular guest and sucks up to him (or her) like no other. I have never met anybody in my entire life who has liked his show and I am still utterly amazed and beleive that it is nothing short of a miracle that his show is still on today.moreless
    • Like smack talk? then this is the show for you.

      Every week day Rome and whoever he brings on start riping the athletes or whoever visiously. The program was very interesting for a while but the constan smack is just too much day after day. The rants that open the show every day are very obvious and not very funny. James Fry thinks this show is unoriginal. The panelist guest are very bland, and don't grab my attention as well as they should.Overall this show could use some more informed guest as well as Jim could use some interviewing skills. Seriously he is the weakest interviewer for a guy that does all the Smack talking that he does.moreless
