    Is Steven A. Smith the worst sports personality on ESPN?

    The Worst Sports Personalities on ESPN
    Was looking at this list of the worst sports personalities on ESPN and it's quite clear that Steven A. Smith is hated, but personally I hate Skip Bayless more. He's just totally obnoxious - Smith is just an idiot. Anyone agree? Disagree? Think Skip Bayless is the greatest person ever (don't post if you're gonna say that, seriously do not).

    At the risk of stating the painfully obvious here, no one on ESPN is worse than Stephen A. Smith. The man is so ridiculously judgmental and half the time all he wants to do is BE the story instead of discussing it. I don't just dislike him, I HATE him.

    I think Skip Bayless and Steven A Smith are equally terrible. They both are very biased and have certain teams and players that they love and hate. When they argue back in forth, it is the most annoying thing I have ever seen. First Take is probably the worst show ESPN has ever because of those 2 numbskulls. If you are looking for a morning sports show to watch I would recommend the Dan Patrick Show.

    We can't even watch five minutes of First Take without getting irritated - all of you are right!

    Arguably Stephen A. Smith is one of the worst sports personalities ever, not just ESPN. I can't listen/see him either, just bugs the crap out of me continually. For the most part I like everyone, with a few exceptions, some sports personalities/commentators from other networks that must be noted..I hate Tim McCarver, for instance - he's one of the worst "color" commentators ever, IMO. I'm not the only one, I'm sure...right?

    Where's Barry Melrose? Oh wait, ESPN denies the existence of hockey. Sorry, forgot about that.

    I was just watching first take and Stephen A Smith was playing the Love doctor. He was giving Rory Mcilroy tips on his love life. I do not watch sport shows to hear Stephen A Smith talk about relationships. They also talk about politics every once in the while, which is the most annoying thing ever. Screw these guys, I hope ESPN gets a new morning show.

    Saw the same segment stokified and flipped to NFL network real quick. I don't see why they keep him around except that maybe he's a love to hate kind of guy for some people.

    It's actually Stephen. That being said, I am not a big fan of his.

    Hello, gentlemen! Let's keep this on topic, name-calling isn't tolerated on this forum (though we can probably call Stephen A. Smith a few choice names if we want, he drives me nuts too). Both of you have good points about Mr. Smith's er....talents. I really believe with him, ESPN keeps him around strictly for controversy's sake more than anything. I could be wrong. I'm just thankful we're heading into football season soon so I can tune him out even more than I normally do.

    Hugs and love and happy weekend to all,

    Laurie

    Agreed he is an egomaniac and he believes in his own mind that he is a star ! Plus the guy is obnoxious and way way too loud.

    One of the worse shows on ESPN and its because of these two guys. Both of them are egomaniacs and instead of making useful and honest comments they say what they think will be more controversial for attention.

    I think that is exactly it they keep him around for the pure hate factor. Hope he is one of those guys that is hated enough that people watch and see what he says next that they can jump on him for.

    Pretty pathetic but that is TV.
