    Hoge doesn't interest me. Some I like - Jaws, Steve Young, and the NFL AM crew for the most part. The "opinion" or"spicy take" guys like Hoge and Heath Evans I think it is - some old fullback or other) I just don't watch.

    Makes perfect sense to me. The Stealers have a national following (combination of the Mullethead Diaspora after the steel mills went cold + granpaw bandwagoners from the 1970s + Gen-X bandwagoners from early this millenium). They are more likely to tune in to listen to commentary that panders to their prejudices. (Cf. Fox News, bka "Faux Noise.") Larger audience means the network can charge & get more for ad time, i.e., higher revenues. As with everything in the for-profit part of this society, follow the freakin' money.

    Why is Merrill Hoge getting it's own thread on this board is the bigger question?

    I believe if the blocker's head is in front of the person being blocked, then it is a legal block. At least that was how I was taught.

    just mentioned in another thread, they were praising the block on SiriusNFL this morning and said that was possibly the play of the year. Even Rich Gannon said it was one of the best plays he's ever seen.

    If you were Merrill Hoge, wouldn't you be upset too?

    Actually he does because he's a huge Steeler fan.

    Met him two days after the Ravens blew out his boys on 9-11-11. You would've thought that he had just played the game. He was pissed at the Steelers, at Ben and worse thought the Ravens were a fluke. I simply shook my head at him because he's short of a few brain cells. I do understand his loyalty though because he's treated like a God in Western PA.

    I know a lot of posters have a who cares attitude when it relates to the Ravens perception in the media but we aren't talking about people that are impartial. These guys are fans and can sway opinions based on their biased viewpoints. It is what it is but it shouldn't be overlooked.

    That and the fact that at his age, he still can not tie a tie. Does he really have to make the knot that big? Too many concussions, I guess.

    But yes, he is a complete idiot and homer -only a Shittsburgh fan would ever praise his analysis for what it is.

    Well, they are all for-profit networks. I just chose to cite the most obvious, egregious & outrageous example of pandering.

    IMHO there is nothing wrong with making a fair profit in a socially responsible manner--props to them as can. We'll just have to agree to disagree over the qualifiers.

    Geez, Kuspie, I dunno --do you really not have a problem with the fact (not opinion, fact) that what the networks show you is entirely determined by how many of the right types of viewers (commonly easily suckered rubes) can be snookered into watching, irrespective of its validity or value?

    (PS Check your PMs--there'll be a present there for ya shortly!)

    Hoge should be mad at the refs, one I believe is a pittsburg native. Don't watch the program and still wonder who the hell hoge is?

    I do not believe he has ever picked against the Steelers on the "experts picks" page of ESPN.com.
