Some interesting reads from other media outlets on various topics:
Sandomir of the Times on the looming battle for Olympic TV rights here.
A prominent hockey blogger tabs former Islanders announcer Billy Jaffe his color analyst of the year here.
espnW writers respond to the NFL's Brett Favre slap on the wrist here.
An ESPNews anchor plagiarizing an L.A.-area writer here.
I learned very early on in my career that TV and radio people sometimes shamelessly rip off lowly scribes. There was a local television sports guy in Anchorage who used to read my articles almost verbatim on his nightly reports in the early 1980s.
In more recent decades the bigger pet peeve for reporters is having our stuff discussed daily on sports talk radio without credit. Sigh.
