    Re: Fox Sports 1

    I liked Charley Steiner too. The video of him getting in a fight at a John McEnroe Wimbledon press conference in 1981 is priceless. I couldn't find the video on youtube bur his wikipedia page dedicated a section to the incident


    It was during his time with RKO Radio that he was involved in a fracas at the conclusion of a press conference after John McEnroe had won his semifinals match at Wimbledon in 1981. Throughout the tournament, McEnroe had consistently requested not to discuss the status of his relationship with then-girlfriend Stacy Margolin.[3] When James Whittaker, a gossip columnist from the Daily Star persisted in broaching the subject, McEnroe cursed at him and the British media and prematurely ended the press conference by storming out of the room.[4] Steiner confronted Whittaker to say, "C'mon, man, you are just messing it up for everybody else. We want to get our quotes." Right at that point, Nigel Clarke, another British reporter who then worked for the Daily Mirror, stuck his index finger in Steiner's face.[3] Clarke then got up on a chair and attempted to rain punches down on Steiner,[5] who successfully wrestled his adversary to the floor. Surprisingly, Steiner later was personally thanked by the head of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club, who also had a disdain for the British tabloids.[3]

    I completely forgot that Kilborn was a SC anchor. That's how long it's been - Olberman "left" ESPN right before I started ISU back in '97.

    Back then Scott at least was cool. Eisen and Scott were nearly as good of an anchor team as Patrick and Olberman were. Something happened when Eisen left, though - either it was they were just that good of a team or Scott's personality became larger than life and it didn't become him. But certainly Scott is nowhere near the personality that he was then.
