Mariotti and I don't agree, ever. Whew.

I'm going to gloat about the dumbest thing a human being has ever gloated about:

Jay Mariotti doesn't think like I do.

Oh what a relief that is.

In the last few weeks, Mariotti and I have had polar opposite viewpoints on at least two stories, most recently the Oakland Raiders' current mess with Tom Cable apparently attacking an assistant coach. My column comes out soon, where I urge Roger Goodell to butt out. Mariotti's column is out now, urging Goodell to take action.

It reminds me of a week ago, when Rick Pitino was linked to an affair and an abortion and I said that, as ugly as the situation might be, you don't fire a guy in my America for that. Mariotti had the opposite take, urging as he regularly does that anyone and everyone should be fired, and specifically saying Pitino should resign in shame.

Why am I linking to a guy I clearly don't like? One reason, mainly. I'm not afraid of competition. I'm not going to ignore his presence, or the presence of others, out of fear that you'll read him or someone else and decide I suck and never come back here again. By all means, read some of these idiots.

I'll be here when you come back.

Hoss, I know you're being supportive, and I appreciate that. But could you ... be MORE supportive? I'm the cheezewhiz that brings out the morons. Not good.

(But seriously. Thank you. I love a good analogy as much as anyone. I just wish you had me being the David Beckham that brings the women swooning, or something like that.)

     Cheez Whiz that brings out morons. But enough about Mariotti...LMAO
     Hey, sometimes I do need a good laugh on here. I think that did it.
     I wondered why I faved you. Now I know.Cool

I like how Doyel writes this whole spiel on the NCAA being hypocritical. Then he goes and criticizes Jay Marriotti after saying that he would no longer criticize the media.

Pot meet kettle. Doyel, you're as hypocritical as the NCAA.

I'd never call you worse than Marriotti, though.

Surprisingly, this actually increases your cache, Doyel.

I'd be concerned if you actually did agree with Mariotti on anything.  He's mildly entertaining on Around the Horn, but boy, some of the things he says...sheesh.

Crap, Doyel, now that I've read it, you've forced me to give Mariotti credit for completely nailing the Pitino story. Do you know how annoyed I am about that? I HATE Mariotti.

Do me a favor: The next time Mariotti kicks your butt on a story, don't link to it. Since you actually try to be a journalist, it's a lot more palatable for me to give you credit when you do well than when Mariotti does.

Best writer in the business: Jason Whitlock
Most talented writer: Posnanski

Why: Too nice
Other must reads, other than our fine writers here at CBSSports.com of course: TJ Simers, Dan Wetzel, Mariotti (like watching a train wreck; I can't stop looking).
Peter King? Hell no.
Bob Ryan? Sometimes. Why not.
ESPN: Look, some day ESPN will own everything. Including healthcare and Iraq. So let's be nice to ESPN.

Be interesting to hear which writers you enjoyed reading and/or whose work you admired?  Someone like Jason Whitlock?  Or pre-SI Joe Posnanski?  Peter King?  Bob Ryan?  Which writers out there today are mandatory reading for Gregg Doyel when he fires up his laptop every morning?

I also wonder if you find it as disconcerting as I do when yet another "independent" journalist like Adam Schefter or Rick Riley signs on with ESPN?  (By independent I mean representing a media outlet NOT owned by Disney).  Thank God we have cbssportsline run by that veritable mom-and-pop store Viacom to keep us informed!
