Sports Guy Mailbag

Good stuff, including another take on the Bonds situation.

Which reminds me... Kobe Bryant is at least as much of a jerk as Barry Bonds, probably more, yet the sports media falls over itself telling us how wonderful he is and Nike does ads with the guy implying that he is really a trooper for overcoming so much adversity, which, of course he created by cheating on his wife and being the worst teammate in professional sports. Obviously we still don't like Kobe, but how reviled would that guy be if he got the Bonds' treatment everyday? Just a thought.

Coverage of Bonds vs. coverage of Kobe = David Stern vs. Bud Selig. Selig is an incompetent boob. Stern is not (I don't like him, but he's good at manufacturing media image).

Ray Ratto also has an interesting take at CBSsportsline.com. Plus, he looks like Tommy Boy with a mustache.
