Sports Talk Kills Family of Four

Say it isn’t so! Lance Briggs says he won’t play again in Chicago because of the way the fans and MEDIA reacted to his contract situation. He also calls out “The Score” for tricking him into an interview and for pretty much dragging his name through the mud. All last year, I wondered if the Chicago sports talk landscape was too sharp-tongued. During the Rex Grossman debacle, many point to the AM talkers for fanning the flames. Now it’s ridiculous to point out sports radio for ruining the Bears and Lance Briggs, but if this gets national coverage, will Chicago become known for it’s awful, muck-raking sports media? Lovie hates them. Dusty Baker hated them. Lance Briggs hated them. Ronnie Woo-Woo probably hates them. Who else? I’ll bet Keith Moreland hates them. Anybody ask Trent Tucker if he hated them? Who would have thought that players would not want to play in Chicago because of AM radio. Jeesh.
