Pete Rose and Sammy "The Gladiator" Sosa were the first to come to mind, but the list would be huge. Bonds, Randys Moss and Johnson, Tim McCarver, Ron Artest, it keeps going and going.......

I've always feared that one day Bill Walton and Dick Vitale would be paired together with Isaiah Thomas as the "side line" guy....

Jim Roam
Max Immerman (or what ever his last name is)
Jimmy Kimmle only makes me laugh when he does Karl Malone...
Moronotti of course...

I always thought "tool" was the same as "shill", "lackey" or maybe a simple "yes man".

Someone please define "tool" for me... because a couple of examples listed aren't yes men, imo.

Jim Rome. PHENOMINAL!

You sir, are correct. I was ecastic when he got bumped from WMVP. If I had to hear him refer to his own show as "The Jungle" one more time I'd have gone nuts. Last summer he was on vacation for a week and brought in five different hosts for the show. All five were better than he was. I wrote him an email urging him to do us all a favor and go on vacation every week, but he didn't read it on the air. I was pretty confident he would, too.

Sean Salisbury is a tool. John Clayton is a tool, but seems like a good guy.

Bill Wirtz. Mike Morth. Shammy. Michael Irvin. The list can go on.

I'm not try to change your mind, mind you...

Rome came up with a great idea (imo) for a format and it blew up big time. Now all the ESPN radio types (Dan Patrick included) are all looking up at the "jungle"... even the callers calling into these ESPN shows pattern their "takes" after Rome's "clones".

Now, that is ... ... ... Hilarious. :cool:

War Jim Rome. :wink:

I've often dove for the remote control when their little 4 downs schtick comes on during Sportscenter. Most annoying sports-themed thing on television (well, besides Cold Pizza).

And, although not exactly a tool, Stuart Scott has become a victim of my mute button several times now. His material is so tired that he makes Jay Leno look like Lenny freakin' Bruce.

Bill Wirtz is an excellent call.

After that, the announcing team for ESPN's Sunday Night Football drives me nuts. That telecast and the Joe Buck/Tim McCarver Fox baseball broadcasts are usually watched on mute if I'm watching on my own TV. Can't say if it's one specific member of each broadcasting team that irks me, or if the combination throws me over the top.

There's a lot of thread hijacking going on here, with all of the non-baseball names served up. Bill Wirtz, Randy Moss, Stewart Scott, Michael Irvin, etc. are all good nominations but they aren't baseball!

That's why I'm nominating Scott Boras for the Lifetime Achievement award. Not just for his valuable contributions to the Maggs situation, but I honestly think he's bad for baseball.

By the thread title, you are right, but if you look at the first post in the thread, it reads...

I cannot believe it took til the 24th post for someone to mention Wirtz. Surely the owner of the SI-proclaimed worst organization in all of sports would have some reach in this field. Along with Wirtz, Bettman and Goodenow are up there too.

Actually, he was a couple times but I will cast another vote for him as well. In addition:
Another vote for Barry Bonds
Uncle Jerry
John Rocker (though I think he is retarded,er retired)
Roger Clemens

Wow...let's take a moment to recognize what a kick ass nomination this is right here. Landis did more to delay the arrival of black players in the majors than anyone in baseball.

I've seen some serious tools nominated so far, but this cat was on a whole other level.

Hell of a nomination Nick.

Baseball

Players--Scammy Soso

GM/Management--Bud "Light" Selig

Announcers--Joe Buck (self loathing ding bat)

Columnists--Jay "the Douchebag of Sports Journalism" Mariotti--who ironically contributes to the same paper as John Stewart's "Douchebag of Liberty" Bob Novak.

Football

Players--Randy Moss

G/M Management--Matt Millen

Announcers--Chris(tina) Collinsworth

Basketball (pro and college)

Players--Ron Artest (thought this one would be a tough choice, but his actions this year speaks incredible volumes as to his character)

Kobe Bryant--see above

G/M Management--Isiah Thomas

Announcers--Dick Vitale--his Duke butt-kissing was almost unbearable last night during the Illini-Wisconsin game

Bill Walton--shut up hippie

I wanted to mute it as well... he actually used the word "scintillating." Like he was looking through the dictionary and came upon a word nobody ever uses in sports broadcasting and sneaked it in.

Biggest Baseball Tool is ESPN, er, the Boston Red Sox-NY Yankees Network. They always talk about the "big" markets first, give them lots of airtime, and just leave everyone else to a 30 second snapshot. What a waste of good satellite sports TV.

Other Sports Tools in no particular order:

Mike North, the self-proclaimed King of All Chicago Sports Radio. :angry:

Skip Clueless...what the hell was Romie thinking about letting this idiot on?

Andrew Siciliano - Fox Sports Radio - he talks and talks and talks like he's important and knows it all. He can be unbearable.

As much as I love Dicky V, if he rants and raves about the Dukies one more time....:angry:

...and countless many more that I'm failing to mention.
