Weekly media column version 10.07.11


We cover more on the Hank Williams Jr./ESPN deal in today’s media column (linked here), plus stuff on the NHL season, an ESPN documentary about sports agents from Morgan Spurlock and what CBS defines as “spectacular.”

What we didn’t cover: Another sports agent story — Drew Rosenhaus appears on “60 Minutes” this weekend (7 p.m.) and tells Scott Pelley that the NFL would surely “fall apart without me. That may sound cocky, that may sound arrogant, but I am telling you the truth.”

We also didn’t mention: Golf Channel will mike up Rocco Mediate during his play today in the Frys.com Open. What if the mike cuts out? Can we get a new one at Fry’s?

And we just found out: Barry Sanders replaces the HWJr. intro for this Monday’s game in a format “we’ll likely use the remainder of the season,” says ESPN. “We haven’t made any decisions beyond that.” (linked here). And here’s David Zirin’s official take on the Hank Williams Jr. firing from his EdgeofSports.com site (linked here).
