Scuffle between Houston & Phoenix draws attention of bloggers

Every Monday trough Thursday, Buzz Manager Blog reports the Top 5 Topics discussed by the most influential sports blogs, as rated by Sports Media Challenge’s Sports Blog Index.
Over the past 24 hours, a scuffle among several Houston Rockets and Phoenix Suns players was the most popular topic. Bloggers joked that Suns C Shaquille O’Neal getting involved effectively ended the fight because no one compared in size. Many bloggers displeased with FOX’s coverage of the Bowl Championship Series games were happy to discuss news that ESPN has submitted a substantial bid for the rights to air the games. Trail Blazers C Greg Oden’s first NBA points were also highly discussed. Bloggers also took note of “Inside The NFL” panelist and “Dancing With The Stars” contestant Warren Sapp referring to fellow former NFL-er Keyshawn Johnson with a derogatory term upon hearing of Johnson’s plans for hosting an interior design show. Rounding out the Top 5 was bloggers’ skepticism regarding an ESPN commercial casting call that featured various gender, racial, and collegiate stereotypes. ESPN has since denounced the casting call, saying the campaign was outsourced and the language in the casting call was not approved by them.
