After 17 years, CBS 11 and I could not reach a new agreement. So tomorrow will be my last show. Please watch. It has been a great 17 years.

This was the first I head of this news. You are slowly making your way back into being the hardest working man in the news business.

He could never quite live up to his nickname name, Babe.

Living up the greatness of Babe Ruth, Babe Didrikson and Babe Parilli was too much for him to handle.

Laufenberg is arguably one of the worst quarterbacks in NFL history.

Skippy, Please show the hightlights(sorry, that was a slip of the tongue. I meant to say lowlights) of his one game as quarterback of the Cowboys when they played Atlanta. I think it set a record for number of sacks.

I thought it was "n everfang".

his career or achievements as an NFL QB have no bearing on his abilities as a sports reporter. However, his experience in the NFL (from the sidelines, even) allows him to commune with athletes and gives him some insight, which forms his commentary.
That's why games are usually called by a play-by-play guy, who typically never played sports, paired with a former jock. Thus you get the "this is what's happening" professional voice combined with the "this is how and why it's happening" talking head expert.
I don't normally watch any sports coverage, but he's no worse than anybody else in this market. He does get consideration for having once been on the local team

meh.

His position on the team was more to teach Troy the ropes. He was not hired for his playing ability as best as I can remember.

He was no Gary Hogeboom!

Hate to see Babe go. Will he still be on Cowboys radio? CBS is really screwing up 11. First they move Karen Borta to the red-eye now they can Babe. Corporate run stations suck.
