    i watch this guy on espn...it seems the show focuses on sports NBA, NFL, MLB (sometimes) and big time college sports......except the NHL....

    the NHL doesn't even exist on that show's radar....

    Steven A. Smith is a moron who does nothing but yell. I'm glad he doesn't talk about hockey and I wish he'd shut up about everything else.

    It's a good thing that he doesn't because WHEN YOU TRY TO WATCH IT, IT WOULD BE LIKE THIS FOR 99% OF THE TIME. WHERE HE WILL YELL AND YELL AND MAKE NO SENSE.

    He'd only talk about hockey if something similar to the Miami/Florida International game on Saturday happens on the ice.

    I'm in favor of removing his voicebox.

    Steven A Smith is a glorified racist, who loves his "street" NBA, and took the sides of the idiots in last year's basketball brawl between the Pacers and The Pistons...but if the same thing happened in the "white" NHL, he would critisize the players and the sport to no end

    well there is virtually no hockey shown on the entire network, so his show would be the last place Id expect to find it. :banghead:

    SAS not talking about Hockey is probably a good thing.

    You do realize that, since it's his show, he's allowed to talk about whatever he wants, and he has no responsibility to mention hockey at all?

    I'm pretty sure he had Mark Messier on there at somepoint.

    I don't like him at all. The handful I've turned it on, he's always talking about basketball or bringing up the race card.

    Last season, he had Gary Bettman on, and as expected, he asked the usual stupid - doom and gloom questions about the leagues viability. Of course this was after the lock out, but Bettman was clearly able to put Smith's questions to rest with facts.

    A minor ESPN annoyance I just found today: looking at the tv schedules for all the games at their website, their national TV column is notably blank. Guess they don't consider Versus national TV.....(although my cable company doesn't provide it).

    I don't really watch ESPN anymore.

    That's actually funny becasue I remember a few weeks ago when Versus has a college football game ESPN.com listed Versus as national tv.

    As for SAS, the guys an idiot. The only time he has hockey on his show is to trash it. I was flipping through the channels when his show first came on and noticed (and was surprised to see) he had Stan Fischler as a guest on a panel on his show. From what I caught Stan made the argument that Gretzky was a better athlete than Jordan because Gretzky had to skate. SAS yelled back saying Gretzky doesn't count as a great athlete because he played hockey.

    He was especially humorous during the world cup. The man clearly didn't know anything about soccer yet he still bashed it. He would probably do the same if he ever talked about hockey. He really doesn't know all that much about sports in general.
    Just anther example of America's obsession with listening to morons' opinions in the media about stuff that influence their own instead of forming them by themselves (For example: Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'reilly, Michael Moore, PTI, Steven A. Smith,etc, etc)

    You are the first person that isn't Stephen A. Smith to complain about Stephen A. Smith not talking.

    He's a blowhard, a bigot, a tool and his show sucks. If anything, you should be glad that he isn't talking hockey, because he wouldn't contribute positively to it.

    The people in this thread have it right, if he did discuss hockey, I think it would
    end up on a level of Bryant Gumble's take on the Winter Olympics. I'd rather have
    no hockey talk than another instance of that.
     
  21. Hey, SAS may suck, but PTI is fine by me. I don't watch it for hockey discussion anyway.

    i'd have to (sort of) quote tommy boy on this one:

    QUITE FRANKLY, "i'd like someone to ring the call box so i can go over and hit steven a. smith over the head with a tackhammer, b/c he's a reeeeeee-tard."
    :D
     
  23. I hate to sound racist but Smith mainly focuses on sports that black people play. If Hockey had alot of black players, and stars no doubt it'd have a bigger role.
