    Capitalizing on your name and not doing any real work. Fair enough I suppose, at the end of the day you're the one who has to look at yourself in the mirror.

Because he's smart and can actually give logical pre and post game analysis. Why do they keep people like Irvin around? Because it's funny and people are discussing it, so he obviously is doing his job. They want viewers. They don't care who they are. They just need to prove to the beer companies that they are pulling the numbers they promised when selling them ad time.

    Spot on. These shows aren't about the intelligence behind the analysis, they're about the attention the talking heads can generate. If Irvin pisses people off they will watch just to hate...like people who have no rooting interest in the baseball playoffs, but tune in to hate the Yankees.

    I agree with this. Obviously Irvin isn't there because of his rapier sharp wit, or highly intelligent analysis. He's there because he was a controversial player, and now creates controversy with his mouth........which is good for ratings.

    But none of this changes the fact that he's an idiot.
    If there is no Seahawk football in heaven, then we will never die.

  • The win didn't change his mind. The Seahawks didn't win, Irvin said something like "the Bills quite, all of them quit".
    "Are we rockin' and rollin' or what?!''

  • Cocaine is a helluva drug. Couldn't care less what this bone bag thinks. Wish I could get paid for voicing an opinion, instead of doing research and being a real analyst. He's a joke, molded by the Laugh Factory that is the MSM.
