Tom Donahoe on The Mort Report

with 2 comments

I’ve listened to every Mort Report, the weekly football radio show hosted by ESPN’s Chris Mortenson, this NFL season, and in it he has a football pick ’em segment featuring former Buffalo Bills General Manager, Tom Donahoe.  Nine weeks into the NFL season, Mortenson and Donahoe have never picked a game that involved the Buffalo Bills.  Not even in Week 7 when the Bills played the San Diego Chargers which was a featured national game of the week.

Is Tom Donahoe so petty and vindictive that he steadfastly refuses to have to utter the words “the Buffalo Bills” in any public capacity?  Why is ESPN allowing it’s viewership to suffer because of one man’s insecurities?  I wonder if and when the Buffalo Bills make it into the playoffs this year, will Chris Mortenson sacrifice his journalistic integrity to cater to the whims of a selfish Donahoe and exclude the Bills from the pick ’em segment?  I have a suggestion for Mort – dump Donahoe.  His analysis during the pick ’em segment is so mundane, cliche, and elementary, you’d be better served replacing Donahoe.
