Quite Frankly

Inquirer columninst Stephen A. Smith debuts his new television show "Quite Frankly" today at 6:30 p.m. on ESPN2.

Hot topic of the day Terrell Owens was scheduled to be on the debut show, but canceled on Friday. No official reason was given.

Here is a release from ESPN public relations:

QUITE FRANKLY WITH STEPHEN A. SMITH GUEST UPDATE
"We were notified last night that Terrell Owens will likely not be a guest on Quite Frankly with Stephen A. Smith when the show premieres Monday at 6:30 p.m. (ET) on ESPN2," said Mike McQuade, senior coordinating producer. "If he is not available, the debut will shift focus to NFL player contracts and guests will include Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb and New York Giants defensive end Michael Strahan."

Don't worry, it won't all be boring contract talk. Also expected on the first show is another Philly hot topic, Sixers superstar guard Allen Iverson.

Iverson tells Stephen, "There are some mean-spirited people in Philadelphia. ...There's more love than hatred in Philadelphia for Allen Iverson."

Tune in.

I am watching your show about Barry Bonds. You are defending him very strong. Alot of people say that he is the greatest player today. How come they do not back up Palmeiro and Pete Rose? People now want to use Pete Rose as an example. Pete Rose gambled as did Jordan. He played the game very well. All I here is how Sammy Sosa is a hall of Famer and Barry Bonds is the greatest player ever even though it was proven that he took steroids, he just said he did not know. Sammy Sosa can not field for crap. Derek Jeter almost never makes mistakes be it base running batting or running the bases or fielding. I believe Jeter and Alex Rodriquez are the best players of our generation. But I also understand that they are not black. Is this another if you are a black athlete you can't be touched and it is politically wrong to say anything bad about black athletes. How much does the Naacp realy have to do with todays athletics. Look at hockey. There is not one black hockey player that is worth didly. People say Iginla but all he does is shoot. If there is a two on one he won't pass the puck if there is an empty net and his teamate needs a goal for a hat trick he will take the shot himself. they always talk about the black player that is playing like he is a future hall of famer. Notice that I did not say African american because if your were not born in another country or at least lived ther for a couple of years you should not be able to clame it. The only African American Hockey player is Olaf Kolzig and he is white. I guess my point is it seems if you are a black athlete you can not do wrong and if you do the media will make excuses or sweep it under the carpet or find a white or non black player to turn the heat on..

I keep hearing this argument for who the best athlete is and everytime its discussed im simply floor by the fact that the fastest man in the world never comes up. The fact is who ever has the 100 meter dash record has did something noone has ever done period. Where talking about the fastest person to ever walk the face of the earth. How can you compare these other people to the title "Fastest Man To Ever Live."

Before thoses foolish people gave Stephen his own show I thought he was a jerk. Now that I actually wasted my time to watch his show, I now know just how much of a COCKY jerk he really is. That is a perfect example of wasted air time.
