    Re: Jim Rome

    Rome's question was legit many DO think the nba is fixed. Stern is a joke of a commissioner.

    Not sure if serious? Stern is one of the best commissioners ever.

    People who think the lottery is rigged obviously do not understand anything about statistics, although those people are probably more likely to be fans of Jim Rome's show I suppose.

    I don't care who you are or how silly the question is, that was unprofessional. There are a hundred other smart *** responses I would have pulled out before that one.

    I think it's fairly obvious he was pointing out how ridiculous the question is by posing a ridiculous question of his own.

    Re: Jim Rome

    He wasnt implying that Rome beat his wife. He was saying that no matter how he answers the question, its a lose lose.

    And also, to think that the lottery is fixed just shows that you are an idiot.

    I'm not one that thinks there is a fix, but there are some that do that's why he asked the question.

    I think Stern comes off as the JA here...

    DID Rome beat his wife at one time?

    and now I need the next segment!!

    I don't think there's any evidence that Rome has ever beat his wife, which would make it more obvious that Stern was trying to prove a point, that point being that Rome is an idiot.
