CBS Sports Analyst Bill Cowher "Insulted" By Rumors

How dare the media insinuate that CBS Sports analyst Bill Cowher will return to the sidelines in 2011.

Cowher addressed the rumors that he’s in line to become the head coach of the New York Giants (when Tom Coughlin gets the boot in the offseason) on Sunday during The NFL Today.

“For anyone to insinuate that I have a wish list of coaches to be fired at this time of the year, I have too much respect for the profession,” Cowher said. “I know how hard it is. I don’t wish for anybody to be fired. And for someone to insinuate that I’m doing that right now is disrespectful to them, and I’m insulted by it. I would not do that to the profession. Read more

The SportsNewser Interview: Frank Deford

Tuesday night on HBO’s Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel, corespondent and legendary sports writer Frank Deford profiles University of Connecticut women’s basketball head coach Geno Auriemma.

Auriemma has developed quite the reputation over the years as being a fiery coach. Deford hopes his feature on the Huskies coach will show that there’s more to Auriemma than meets the naked eye.

Deford chatted with SportsNewser the weekend on his role at HBO and his outspoken comments on the now infamous trick play at Driscoll Middle School.

SportsNewser: What can people expect from your report on Geno Auriemma?

Frank Deford: I think it’s a look at Auriemma. I think most people see him, as they do so many coaches, when he’s on the court. He looks like a very frenetic fellow then. What we have tried to point out is there’s many more layers to Geno Auriemma than what you see on the court. If you think about it, it would be hard for him to continue to get players, especially young women, if he were some nutcase. In fact, the players like him a great deal and find him to be almost an uncle type figure.

How much time did you spend with Auriemma?

NFL Broadcast Teams For Week 10

Things are looking bleak for fans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Sunday’s home game against the Carolina Panthers will be blacked out, and the team has said all eight home games — and potentially even a home playoffs game — could be blacked out as well.

Paging Roger Goodell

Also blacked out this weekend is Buffalo hosting Detroit. And really, can you blame Bills fans at this point?

Below are the broadcast teams for Week 10 of, “Where In The World is Gus Johnson?” Read more

The Great Boston Sports Radio Battle

The Boston sports radio market is undergoing some serious change. Namely, the upstarts from 98.5 Sports Hub are killing WEEI’s The Big Show, the long-time drive-time leader.

Felger and Massarotti, the FM station’s signature show, saw its share in the 25-54 year old male category – so the dudes who listen to sports radio – jump 24 percent from September to October while its competitor stayed static.

George Cain, a guest contributor on Boston Sports Media Watch, offers four reasons why he believe this happened.

One item specifically caught our eye. Read more

What If San Francisco Threw a Parade and Everyone Got to March?


Or maybe that’s just how it seemed.

San Francisco Giants49ers fans lined the streets today for the World Series parade. At least, those Giants supporters who weren’t allowed to participate in the parade. Quite honestly it seemed like everyone from season ticket holders and KNBR 680 employees to the Emerald Nuts mascot and a bunch of UPS drivers got involved. And, of course, Tim Lincecum. It was absurd. Also, awesome. This is one happy city. And new hats. So many people with new Giants hats.

Some highlights after the jump. Read more

Ines Sainz Rips Association for Women in Sports Media

Ines Sainz really didn’t want the help of the Association for Women in Sports Media.

The TV Azteca reporter, who was in the middle of a firestorm after visiting New York Jets practice on Sept. 11, ripped the group in a column for El Universal.

“Today I wonder why a well respected association such as the AWSM, within its right to inform about any violations of work conditions for its members, acted so impulsively,” Sainz wrote for the Mexican newspaper.

Sainz went on to say that the AWSM set the women’s rights movement back “at least 50 years.”

As a result of the AWSM filing a complaint on Sainz’s behalf, the NFL will implement a workplace conduct training program for all 32 teams and paid for by Jets owner Woody Johnson. Read more
