Is TJ Simers provocative?

LA Times calls Simers provocative. I disagree. Hurling random insults is not provocative -- it is just asinine. Pippen telling Malone, "The mailman doesn't deliver on Sunday," is provocative. Jackson calling Bryant uncoachable is provocative. Simers does not have the wit or the depth or the intelligence to be provocative -- he can only be mindlessly abusive. He insults his readers, his friends, his bosses, all the players, his family (many of his columns go on and on about the grocery store bagger, presumably his son-in-law).

Since LA Times charges for archived articles, some of the very worst Simerisms are lost to us. But here is a fine example of complete pointlessness. And here is the worst ever column about college sports.

Even Plaschke, another mediocre writer for the LA Times, can be provocative, once getting Shaq to call him a frog (search for elephant in the page to see the quote). But no body now bothers to get provoked by Simers, so his random gratuitous insults are even more pointless.

Guess you got your wish. TJ and his daughters morning radio careers are over.

Trivia question: I thought 570 wanted local. Guess who they replace that fiasco of Roggin/Simers and Simers with?

TJ and the Times what a loser combination. Liberal west coast rag and midwest hack writer!

What is the difference between TJ Simers and a pile of dog poop?
You can clean the stench of dog poop off of you!
