Please Explain

Can someone explain how Jefferson-Pilot can get away with using Tim Brando and Joe Dean Jr. to commentate the LSU games? I feel like I am listening to Eagle 98.1 or WWL 870 when I am watching Brando and Dean. Doesn't that sacrifice journalistic integrity? I mean Brando is from Shreveport and his daughter is a student at LSU right now and Joe Dean Jr's dad is the former Athletic Director at LSU. Shhh... I think they're biased.

Jefferson-Pilot is the LSU network, man. And anyway, in journalism school they say that sportswriters and commentators aren't subject to as tough of an objectivity standard as the rest of the media.

But I agree. Team loyalty can go too far. A lot of Lafayette broadcasts can be that way too.
