[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Michael Wilbon : Agreed on the list! Sadly, Salisbury was let go by ESPN. I heard he once called John Clayton the Cryptkeeper, which if true is hilarious.

I saw the back-and-forth the day he called John Clayton the Cryptkeeper and it was great! I laughed sooooooooo hard! It was right before he was booted from ESPN.
As for Wilbon, I don't think he's a Pats hater. I watch PTI everyday and I like Kornheiser and Wilbon. Wilbon seems more like he likes underdogs and "the little guy" schools/teams; he's always rooting for TCU, Boise, Texans, Tampa Bay Rays, etc.. He doesn't care for Tony's "east-coast bias" obviously, but he really does give the Pats their due credit and does seem to have respect for Kraft, Belichick, and Brady (as well as Moss and others who have come in as troublemakers and thrived as well as stayed quiet).
Tony Kornheiser LOVES the big guys - Dallas, New England, LA Lakers, NY Yankees, etc. He is from NY (state, not sure about city) so he is naturally an east-coast guy though.
Wilbon is from Chicago and loves everything Chicago, but man he sure does rip Cutler (when he was a Bronco and after he went to the Bears).
I think Wilbon is more objective than Tony, but they both entertain me for 30 minutes.
Dan LeBatard (or however you spell it) from Miami is quite interesting as well. He stated that after the Pats-'Fins game a few weeks ago that the Pats scoreboard read "Joey Porter 0 Tackles" instead of the final score like the one I took after the Pats-Bills game in my avatar pic lol.
