Colin Cowherd is adept at putting his foot in his loud mouth and attention only makes him stronger, but what he said yesterday deserves mention because it’s particularly stupid and insulting. He derided hockey writers everywhere by painting them as “cheap and young” with his broad-stroke brush. Hubris, he has it. A point, though? Not so much.
You're getting a lot of young, cheap people covering hockey and it's not like newspapers send their best people to hockey."
"Fox News doesn't send Bill O'Reilly to a speed bump proposal in his hometown... hockey doesn't get the cream of the crop in our business."
"The guy covering the Florida Panthers, he was at a floral show early in the week."
Troll hard, Colin. Troll hard. His observation about the dwindling of newspaper staffs is correct, but this is yet another example of Cowherd using a nuclear missile to get rid of a fly. One also wonders when the last time he’s slummed it with the cheap youngsters and actually, you know, covered a hockey game.
