It's one thing to be known. It's another thing to be known for being an idiot. I guess in the absence of having the ability to be known for anything else he's accomplished something, but I stick with Ben Franklin's motto of "it's better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you're an idiot than to open it and prove them correct".
well, look at it this way. if youve been in the business as long as he has been, and never had the credibility that the other guys you mentioned has, then its a great move to create publicity for yourself by acting like a total idiot and having yourself discussed in the sports world because of it.

if he didn't act like a moron, he'd be just another sports guy. he's created a niche for himself, regardless of how people view him, the important thing is he has established an audience, something that every sportswriter/caster/etc wants for himself.

when youre in the entertainment business, its important to market yourself. Bayless markets himself in a way that makes himself stand out from everyone else. its a calculated move by him.

I just don't understand why he would make everyone think hes a complete idiot just so he can be famous. Doesn't seem worth it.

its not just to be famous. its about money.

Look at Bill O'Reilly. Controversy sells, and makes money.

How many people actually care who Skip is? How many people have actually watch whatever lame show he is on now?

He creates little to no buzz throughout the sporting community, it just so happens someone brought it up here.

Place kicking is apart of football you cant take it out. Skip is a moron and I when I see his jaw flapping I know its just a bunch of garbage coming out.

Yea I agree, I know guys like Michael A Smith because he's on point with his stuff and has a good personality, same for Mariotti...Bayless gets talked about but I dont see any advantage to it, if you take pride in what you do I dont know what you would want to be known for an idiot...I watch 1st and 10 because I like the show and its format, still disagree wth everything bayless ever say and dont know how he keeps his job.

To use the favorite insult of one of my old university instructors*, Skip Brainless is a tool.

* - she doesn't have a Ph.D. -- or @ least not @ the time -- and therefore couldn't be called a "professor"

I just turn the channel whenever I hear him speaking. I feel uncomfortable even posting this, because if people just didn't acknowledge him, he would go away.

We can eliminate punting (I would love to see Peyton Manning getting intercepted in a 4th to 19), but the kicker is one of the most important positions in football and it would take 20% of football emotion out.

I think you're thinking of the Jags and Saints. Saints did all those crazy laterals and then Carney missed the PAT. 2003 I think.
