“Being a Philadelphia Eagles fan and having to take heed to him continually speak concerning the Patriots and rarely the Eagles throughout the sport made it nearly insufferable. As an expert he has an obligation to if not be unbiased at the very least attempt to make the sport fulfilling for all viewers.
