I don't know how many of you are familiar with Jim Rome who has a show on ESPN here in the states.  I like his show however I've always hated how he trashes soccer.  What do you guys think of his comments? here are a couple of links to some of his rants on soccer:

Well on the one hand I probably agree with him (without having seen the links).  Screw soccer.

On the OTHER hand, this is presumably the same Jim Rome who was dumb enough to get his ass handed to him by a professional athlete by repeatedly calling him a nickname which he did not approve of.  So I dunno.

Yes but Jim Everett (CHRIS) put Rome on the roadmap.  Sure, he had a radio show and a struggling TV show, but when he brought Jim (CHRIS) on the show, that was genius.  And very much planned.

Slightly afterwards, Jim (CHRIS) was retired and Rome is still going strong.  So who really won?

"that was genius.  And very much planned"

It's clear to anyone with eyeballs that if that Everett bloke had wanted to take apart Jim Rome, he could've done it easily.  All that skit really needed was a WWF referee.  Still, as much of a shitstirrer as I am, I'm still not sure I'd want to get in the way of a pissy athlete, staged or not.  What if I fell on my ass or something?  I have enough broken vertebrae.
