    You know youtube has a shortcut where you can link a video at a certain time stamp, say the 7:40 mark of this video. All it takes is some right clicking... so that we don`t have to sleep through 7 min plus of mind numbing drivel to get to the purpose of this post.

    I have no love for Jim Rome, but David Stern deserves no accolades. Stern is a TERRIBLE commissioner and completely bullsh*ts his answer because EVERYONE is asking him this because it`s a fairly obvious question, both of these guys are emotional children with too much influence.

    "can someone give some context to those unenlightened in the realm of sports and sports commentators?"

    That`s like asking a housewife for a breakdown on the past 4 seasons of "Days of our Lives" (Is that still on?) Professional sports ARE the soap opera`s for men, and there`s as much story as there is action in these soap opera`s.

    @scuzoid--all I really want to know is whether Jim Rome has actually beaten his wife, or if Stern was just using that as an "equally ridiculous question" type of thing.

    No, Jim Rome doesn`t beat his wife. The question is, "Have you stopped beating your wife yet?" You answer yes, then you admit you used to, no, then you admit you continue to. I thought that was fairly obvious.

    Hmm, so I`m assuming Fancy`s the one that put "rouge" in one of my submission titles. Thanks a bunch, maybe I`ll pay for some Sylvan learning classes for you, or just buy you a dictionary.

    Well no, I get that--the description said he "hit Rome where it hurts" though, so I figured that implied there could have been some truth to it, which would make it a sore spot for him.

    Sheez, just skip to 8:25 and avoid the boring crap. And it gets boring again by 8:30- you can just stop and move on to something else.

    Scuzoid hit the nail on the head. People are retarded. I swear.....

    drat David Stern btw. It was rigged. The team needs a new owner and with the promise of a franchise player should attract buyers.

    Yeah, well, fancy wrote the description professor, so....

    Honestly though, isn`t IAB an LA site? No real Laker fan would ever applaud commissioner Stern.

    Well, to someone with absolutely no knowledge of either of these people`s existence, it`s fair to assume that someone who actually does know them would be better informed about their histories.

    That`s why I asked.

    I don`t think you really need context of their histories. Rome question that Stern felt was based on an obviously false and stupid accusation, that it didn`t require an answer. So Stern then fires an equally stupid question based off a false accusation to Rome to prove his point... If Rome feels he doesn`t need to answer than neither should Stern.

    @swoop:

    it has a owner, Benson-owner of The Saints. This is just a horse sh*t rumor that doesn`t need to be acknowledged. Sparki is right, he asked a similar unfounded yet gossip twitter spreading rumor question. Which he didn`t want to answer since it doesn`t deserve one.

    Okay, so then why is this even a post? If you follow me, I was trying to find some reason for this to be interesting in any way, thinking "hey, maybe I just don`t get it because I know nothing about this."

    Your first reaction will probably be to reply: "dude, this is IAB, we get so much sh*tty content, the hell did you expect?"

    But it`s really not that bad. As much as people like to complain about it, this site is fairly decent. There are definitely total stinkers that get posted, and this is apparently one of them, but you can usually figure out why someone would find what they posted interesting or noteworthy.

    He didn`t ask Rome if he beats his wife. He was making a point about how some questions can actually be accusations. As an example he said- "do you STILL beat your wife?" In other words, by asking the question that way, he is implicitly accusing him of having beat his wife in the past.
