A New "SportsCenter" Low

The Steve Phillips "simulated press conference." Terrible. I don't know what's the worst part- that SportsCenter is devoting large blocks of time to fake news, that real reporters are taking part, that they're seemingly only doing it for the Yankees and Red Sox and a few other teams, or the asinine idea that Steve Phillips would ever again be hired as a GM.

What garbage. And here I didn't think anything would be worse than the nightly 20-minute blocks of Sean Salisbury.

I couldn't agree more. They have a hard enough time reporting the actual news these days and now they're wasting five to ten minutes with a simulated press conference. It's just sad. I miss the days of Chris Berman, Tom Mees and Charlie Steiner.

I agree. This was totally ridiculous. I wonder who signed off on it?
