    Sadly, Jack has gone too long without any sort of accountability for his reporting, which is why it has gotten more sensation and pretty much out of hand, now. Any news director worth his paycheck would at the very least demand an on-air apology.

    And Jason Whitlock goes through stretches, as he is right now, where he’s addicted to being the contrarian. While I commend him for often thinking outside of the box, it’s pretty obvious when it isn’t genuine. Ever since his a-Watson-victory-would-be-bad-for-golf leap, I’ve noticed several columns he’s penned that he can’t possibly believe.

    Greg –

    Please don’t ever use the phrase “Jack Harry fingered” ever again.

    Is what Jack did anything like a blogger “reporting” that Bill Self “has some very unhappy players” without a quote or source to back it up?

    What is the big deal if Haley did flip-off a fan that is berating him? Gunther Cunningham did much worse and nobody uttered a word of protest about it then. This is a season in the toilet. The team is playing out the string. Nobody likes that. Everybody should be flipping-off everybody at Arrowhead this season. The action should become the team’s new “Arrowhead Tomahawk Chop.”

    Jack Harry? YOU idiots waste time talking about
    this washed up old p.o.s. who only got his
    job when the guy he replaced keeled over from
    a heart attck?
    The idiot who was going to quit his job as
    a sports announcer since no one would give him
    a decent job…that was until the guy he replaced
    died of a heart attack.
    This guys been worthless p.o.s. for years and
    you are now only realizing this turd neverhad
    any ethics or talent.
    He “checked with his boss”…wow…cover your
    ass you old wretched man.
    Jack Harry has been wrong more than any
    sportcaster in kc. He was wrong about the
    royals and he always comes to the party
    when everyone knows whats happening.
    KSHB should fire this guy. Take lezack and put
    him in the sports department. At least lezack
    is right 50% of the time on his predictions.
    Send harry packing…too old..too outdated..
    and please someone tell him that haircut went
    out back in the 70’s.
    No wonder kshb ratings are in the toilet and
    they are #4 in news.
    Jack…bye bye.

    Ptolemy: “Everybody should be flipping-off everybody at Arrowhead this season”… can’t get that image out of my head, something out of a movie…

    TV cuts to a stadium shot of Arrowman flipping off Rainbow head, Red Face going after Marti Gras bead dude, KC Wolf humping Holly Starr’s leg. It’s complete chaos at Arrowhead, if the coach did flip somebody off he was the only fired up Chief on Sunday. I agree with Greg, the only story here is Jack Harry trying to make a name for himself by helping bring about the fall of an NFL coach using questionable tactics.

    The local newscast(s) is/are really a sad state of affair. Too much sensationalism driven by the need to impress advertisers chasing the almighty dollar. Journalistic integrity was so 90’s. The time compression between when events happen and when they are reported is nearly instantaneous resulting in access to more information than ever before. The flip side of course is less validation of facts causing embarrassing stories like above.

    And when did it become so difficult to say ‘I made a mistake.’ I don’t want to hear Jack talking about the ego’s at Arrowhead anytime soon… the hypocrisy will be too much.

    Pt, and PE, does remind me of the scene from Stand By Me, where Lardass exacts his revenge on the town by creating a giant barf-o-rama at the fair. The way these guys are playing, it may very well look like that before this is all over.

    Spalding didn’t flip anybody off, he was trying to get rid of a booger. This guy isn’t going to find a friendly smile in any aisle, not even at HyVee.

    By the way, all media members look at Internet message boards to get tips, particularly college ones. But I don’t know if anyone so blatantly uses them as a source the way Jack Harry does. He doesn’t even try to hide it.

    Someone should let him know that internet message board posters are completely full of shit oftentimes.

    Renton-Hilarious
    Gavin-ouch
    Greg-Isn’t this deal with Jack and the e-mailer very similar to K.K.’s famed interview with an EMT caller after Owen hart’s death. Just saying two birds of a feather.

    Jack lives his whole life pissed off because he has to work with Lezak and Lezak has more power and income from channel 41 than sad-sack Jack.

    Like in the past KK will say “I’m sure we haven’t heard the last of this” and, indeed, we will have!

    Merry Christmas everyone and thank you Greg for OTC!

    SAD NEWS. SPORTS GREAT DIES. George Michael who did the Sports Machine which was syndicated on local Kansas City stations died at age 70 from leukemia. The George Michael Sports Machine had played in Kansas City after the 10PM news for many years. It was around for a total of 27 years in markets through out the US. It was amazing that it lasted as long as it did with ESPN and other sports outlets available.

    If I recall correctly George was born in St. Louis and that’s where he got his start as first a radio DJ.

    His Sports Machine was one of the first sports outlets to take Nascar and Nascar fans seriously. He was well loved by wrestling fans as he also would cover professional wrestling. George felt all sports was entertainment so he never drew a line between various sports and their legitimacy. Great guy.

    Speaking of sports personalities whatever happened to Roy Firestone?

    Because of the low readership on the weekend I may repeat or direct people to this post early next week.

    I was just wondering about Roy a few weeks ago. It seems that he kind of disappeared after that horribly unprepared interview of Bob Knight some 10-12 years back. I do know that he was some sort of motivational speaker a few years ago. Not sure now.
