I love Jim Rome, people don't like him because he makes fun of their players, but he does it when it's due. He loves ManRam but still makes fun of him for trying to get pregnant

I think Jim Rome's show is pretty funny.

Not sure if I could listen to it every day in it's entirety....but I enjoy tuning in for a while here and there.

He's an asshole that takes cheap shots without people able to defend themselves, in other words, he's a hack.

Sure He's able to raise controvery with noone there...

Listen to this BS:

Perhaps the most respected voice in the world of sports broadcasting, Jim Rome is the leading opinion-maker of his generation. As host of the nation’s premiere sports radio talk show, Rome is known for his aggressive, informed, rapid-fire dialogue. Jim has established himself as the top choice of athletes and fans when it is time to know what is going on beyond the scoreboard.

Rome’s nationally syndicated radio program, The Jim Rome Show, a.k.a. The Jungle, airs on more than 200 radio stations each weekday and boasts more than two million listeners. But these are no ordinary listeners; they are a legion of fans known as the clones who live and breathe for Jim Rome’s “take” on the day’s larger issues of sport. It is his departure from conventional sports commentary that has resulted in Rome’s unique dialogue with his listeners.

In addition to his daily radio grind, Rome returned to ESPN to host Jim Rome Is Burning, a daily, provocative sports talk show airing at 4:30p.m. EST. The program originates from Los Angeles and features opinion, Rome’s “rants,” debate and guest appearances by some of the biggest name in sports.

Rome has made a cameo appearances along side Al Pacino and Matthew McConaughey in Two For The Money, with Adam Sandler in The Longest Yard and opposite Michael Jordan in Space Jam; appeared in Blink 182’s music video; appeared on HBO’s “Arliss;” and released a CD, Welcome to the Jungle, which features memorable sound bites from frequent callers and the hip music regularly used on the radio show.

Rome previously served as host of the popular program The Last Word with Jim Rome, broadcast nightly on Fox Sports Net, for five years. Prior to The Last Word with Jim Rome, Jim spent a two-year stint hosting ESPN2’s Talk2, a nightly one-hour interview show. Rome began his radio career at KTMS, Santa Barbara as the “$5 dollar-an-hour” traffic reporter and covered UC Santa Barbara’s sports. He left KTMS for San Diego’s all-sports station, XTRA Sports 690. It was during a temporary stint on a late-night show for the station that Rome debuted his “smack” (Jungle Glossary term meaning sports talk in a gloating, uninhibited or unbridled manner). The style yielded high ratings, and, by acclimation of his listeners, The Jungle was born. In 1996, to further keep up with demand, Premiere Radio Networks acquired exclusive syndication rights and the program continues to pick-up affiliates throughout the country.

Rome graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara in 1987, with a degree in Communications. He currently resides in Los Angeles with his wife, Janet and their two children.

Pick Up Basketball guy is so on the money it's not even funny. Especially "serious" guy who checks the ball in and after he rolls the ball to you, he wipes the bottom of his shoes and then slaps the floor with both hands and gets in his ultra low defensive stance and arms out wide like a set of eagle wings. OMG, those were the days. I always just laughed every time I saw "serious" guy. As for "black hole guy", it didn't take long to figure which one he was and I never would pass to him. And he was always too lazy to rebound because he was camped out at the 3 point line, so he would hardly get the ball. Which of course, he then complained alot more.

But one "guy" Jim didn't mention in basketball was "point guard guy". You know who he is. After every made point by the other team, he would never take the ball out even if he was closest. He was the guy that if the ball went through the hoop and he caught it, he would look to somebody else to take it out and give it right back to him. He then would try to put on his (usually) pathetic cross over dribble and between the legs ad he dribbled up court. Sometimes he would even try the behind the back thing, even if nobody was even within 10 feet of him. Of course then he would not pass, try to take double teams off the dribble and then jack up some Dominique type of shot that has not prayer of even catching any iron at all, and then yells foul. I always hated playing with that guy. lol.

Because a first time participant took first and second in the smack off he has been taking more new calls to get new blood. This guy named vinnie mack called in and said he was the next winner then straight bombed. The comments regarding him since have killed me.

I take his show as comedy with a sports theme and its actually funny. I am pretty sure LABF is Trapper.

All you... gasp, gasp, gasp, jive talking turkey... gasp, gasp, gasp...

I have come out on here railing on Jim Rome.

Now, I sit in an office in an area that is kinda isolated. So, I got an AM radio to keep me company. And at noon my choice is between Rush & Rome. No contest. Its Rome every day.

There are lots of time I just turn it down cuz I have to concentrate and idiots talking crap on the phone to each other is distracting. And all the garbage talk on the show I can really do without. But, man, the guy gets great interviews. That interview with the ex mob guy, for instance. That makes all his schtick worthwhile.
