', has helped that dude advance his career so much it's sickening.
I specifically remember him on PTI the week that Ricky retired, Wilbon and Kornheiser were both gone and LeBetard and Steven Smith were running the show.
LeBetard would not say ONE bad thing about Ricky Williams retiring, he wouldn't throw one hurtful term towards Ricky for completely screwing the team Dan covers season all up. It got so bad, Steven Smith even called him out by saying "You can't mean these things, you're saying this so Ricky will still talk to you and give you info."
I reall couldn't believe that LeBetard could sit there on national TV and pander about how it's not Ricky's fault.
