The sideline reporter is someoen that gets quick interviews throughout the game, find out about injuries, and generally report stuff from the field. It was a job Lynn Swann had a couple years back, and he did a great job cause he was a former player (hall of famer WR for the Steelers). He was replaced a by Melissa Stark to get more of a female audience. I was a bit miffed (he's a former steeler!), but was alright with the change. Melissa Stark knew her football and did a good job.
Now, Mrs.Stark is on maternity leave, so they brought in Lisa Guerrero. I think that ABC overstepped its original planning, cause Lisa is a bit of a hottie (which attracts more men, not women)... HOWEVER she has NO CLUE about football. She was writing notes on paper and reading them (some of which details were wrong if you were paying attention to the game, you realized it real quick), and she can't interview for jack. She asked Patrick Ramsey (Washington QB) how he feels about his ex-teammate Laverneaous Coles (who moved from the Jets to the Skins this offseason. So he isn't a former teammate, but a new teammate). Ramsey kinda said "What?!??" which shoulda clued in Guerrero, but, nope, she just went ahead and said it again.
Now, I have no problem with a woman in the position. None at all. BUT YOU HAVE TO KNOW ABOUT FOOTBALL IF YOU ARE GOING TO BE A FOOTBALL REPORTER! They could pick up a college kid and get a better sideline reporter. In fact, I'd bet they could find some other 'good looking' chick that could do the job. My thoughts? Bring back Lynn Swann (he's still in abcsports, just doing college games), until Melissa Starks returns. Lisa just did a terrible job, and doesn't deserve the position!
