Oh, Mike Florio does it all in this article. You thought quoting the CSR site without permission was bad, he absolutely pulled the roof down in this article.
He does it all in this article. He quotes an 'unnamed source,' he disses ESPN, and he somehow wraps his rotten piece of crap all up in a neat package by tying British Football to the current oil spill out in the gulf. I'm fully convinced at this point that Mike Florio is not a journalist. He is an entertainer. He makes articles like this to provoke reaction out of people, good or ill, and he's getting it.
What is it going to take for NBC to realize that this guy is bad news?
