CBS' Gregg Doyel Really, Really Hates Jay Mariotti

The big news in the sports world right now is that ESPN ATH panelist and AOL Fanhouse columnist Jay Mariotti was arrested on Friday night. Mariotti was charged with a felony resulting from a domestic dispute, according to the LA Times.

Tauntr will get to the oft-maligned Mariotti on Monday, for sure, though domestic violence is nothing to joke about. For now, though, I wanted to share CBS Sports' columnist Gregg Doyel's reaction to the news. Doyel, like many in the sports media industry, loathes Mariotti. As a result, he went on an epic anti-Mariotti rant on Twitter this afternoon. Honestly, he went a bit nuts. Even Mariotti's longtime nemesis, Chicago White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen, is unlikely to come anywhere close to that level of hatred.

Just wow.

Quick screen shot:

Doyel's full Twitter ranting, via Mac copy and paste job:

  1. Friend of mine just asked me to stop. Said Mariotti's had enough. Said Mariotti has teenage sons. I shudder for them, but I'll stop now.
  2.  
    Mariotti behind bars with the scum of the earth. And the scum of the earth sees him and says, 'There goes the neighborhood.'
  3.  
    Last week Mariotti demanded the Mets suspend K-Rod more than 2 games. And K-Rod was accused of hitting a man. So whadya say, AOL - 2 months?
  4.  
    @blackburnreview hahahahahah
  5.  
    Anyone else, and I'd wonder out of curiosity how Mariotti might react to my rant. But since he only gets arrested for hitting women ...
  6.  
    After two hours of this, I've received ZERO tweets asking me to lay off. Looks like I've heard from all of Mariotti's friends
  7.  
    Anyone ready for more Mariotti love? I just ate. Had some coffee. Feel good. In 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...
  8.  
    @prosb4hos Hahahah thank you!
  9.  
    @Bfunk12 No I missed that. reading now. thank you'!
  10.  
    @TheBigLead Heavier? Probably so. But fat is lighter than muscle, and there's not a single muscle fiber on his body
  11.  
    @johnrenshaw420 Why are you doing this?
  12.  
    @TuckerMax I think I'm done. I honestly feel like I just sparred 10 rounds. The endorphines were raging, and now I'm spent
  13.  
    @jrmiletti52 I'm 5-10, 162, and built like a pro fighter. That's the truth. Whether you believe it or not is irrelevant
  14.  
    Swear to God, Mariotti concludes that story by mocking Clemens' coming prison term: "His next number will be much longer." HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
  15.  
    1st sentence of Mariotti's latest column: "It was arrogance that doomed Roger Clemens, raw defiance feeding a blind and reckless narcissism"
  16.  
    And what about you, ESPN? You put Mariotti on Around the Horn, and why? Because someone had to be a bigger douchebag than Woody Paige?
  17.  
    @JasonAaron1 Would be SUCH irony
  18.  
    Anyone know what it means to toss a salad? In a few days, maybe Mariotti will tell us.
  19.  
    @JeromeGriffith ewww. i wish i didn't know what that means, but i do
  20.  
    Your turn, big fella RT @TuckerMax: @greggdoyelcbs You've written 2 funny tweets in your life before today. After today u may hit 100
  21.  
    @TuckerMax This DEMANDS for your input, Tucker Max!!!!
  22.  
    @JieWie No, looser as in looser bowel
  23.  
    Here's the online arrest report. Skimpy. No details, like how hard Mariotti cried when they cuffed him:http://bit.ly/a402GS
  24.  
    "For County facility visiting hours, Please call (213) 473-6080 at Inmate Information Center." Tell Mariotti I said, "Hi, and f-- you."
  25.  
    @eihIII oh. hahahah whew. yes, you're right
  26.  
    Sorry. Can't stop. New info here. Booking report says Mariotti is 5-10, 165. So am I. Mine is muscle and bone. His is gelatinous sludge
  27.  
    OK I'm done. Thank you for listening. And thank you, Jay, for being you. What's that Jay? I can't understand you. Something in your mouth...
  28.  
    @eihIII Why?
  29.  
    Mariotti, arrested, in a jail cell? Today is the day I started to believe in Karma.
  30.  
    @NilsAParker She's Mary Magdalene. Only uglier
  31.  
    But seriously, AOL Fanhouse. What the hell were YOU thinking? Mariotti isn't liked, isn't trusted, isn't respected. Otherwise, great hire.
  32.  
    @Chilltown1491 Doesn't apply to Mariotti
  33.  
    Endorphins receeding. In conclusion, my condolences to Mariotti's girlfriend, and to AOL Fanhouse for hiring that asshole in the first place
  34.  
    Mariotti wanted Ozzie Guillen fired for calling him a NAME. What would Mariotti have written had Guillen beaten up his girlfriend?
  35.  
    @TraceyG1114 Don't encourage me!
  36.  
    Mariotti had a girlfriend?! For some reason I'm whistling the song from "The Crying Game."
  37.  
    @powercatchief hahahahaaaaa
  38.  
    Along with the mug shot of Mariotti, can someone find a picture of the alleged girlfriend, and her seeing-eye dog?
  39.  
    @vinceguerrieri Welcome. My pleasure, BELIEVE ME
  40.  
    Accused of beating up his girlfriend? I'll never look at Mariotti the same again. And I used to look at him as a dog turd. Now, he's looser.
  41.  
    If my Mariotti tirade gets me fired, and I end up homeless in a cardboard box, I can say this: I'd do it all over again. Only meaner.
  42.  
    I'm being inundated by hundreds of tweets from people begging me to lay off Mariotti. Well, 10 or 20 such tweets. Maybe five. OK ... none.
  43.  
    @MemphisSportFan hahahah i'm trying!
  44.  
    @Michael_Rudolph hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhahahahah
  45.  
    At some point I'm going to feel bad about reveling in Mariotti's lowest moment. Until that point ... drinks on me!
  46.  
    @zipyrich Was wondering why I hadn't heard from you! Thank you again. You can DRAW. I mean, better than I can write. And, um, I'm good
  47.  
    @CJStarchild hahahahahhah don't do THAT
  48.  
    I need Mariotti's mug shot. I need it now. Mug shot. Mariotti. Now. I bet his eyes are red from bawling like a baby that motherf------
  49.  
    True RT @KySportsRadio: There is little I've enjoyed more than Doyel's reaction when I told him the Mariotti news on phone. Kid at Christmas
  50.  
    @murphsturph hahahahha Murphy!!!
  51.  
    I think I'm done. I need a cigarette. Just like Mariotti's cellmate will want one in about, oh ... now.
  52.  
    Just a guess, but if Mariotti DID hit somebody, he used an open hand. Guy like that hasn't thrown a punch in his life.
  53.  
    He writes strong, but ducks athletes. He screams on TV, but ducks writers. He flies around world to watch the game on press room TV. A--hole
  54.  
    @EricinHouston Well, thank you!
  55.  
    People keep asking, 'Why do you hate Mariotti?' I say, 140 characters ain't enough to explain. 140 pages might do it. If I don't use vowels
  56.  
    If the subject of this story were an athlete, Mariotti would call for his dismissal. Just saying ...
  57.  
    Mariotti in jail on $50,000 bail. Mariotti in jail on $50,000 bail. Mariotti ... sorry. Please, nobody pinch me. This is the best dream ever
  58.  
    @NJ_StevePoliti No worries. I'm doing it to myself at the moment
  59.  
    And if anybody thought I MIGHT be a big enough man to let this go, sorry. I'm tiny. And Mariotti deserves everything he gets in the shower
  60.  
    By the way, here's the link to Mariotti's arrest, also known as Christmas in August: http://bit.ly/a5DcVG
  61.  
    If you're waiting for someone to rush to Mariotti's defense as a character witness, it could be a while. Grab a book. War and Peace, maybe
  62.  
    What's the max penalty for domestic violence in California, anyway? Please tell me it's a capital crime out there.
  63.  
    People like to say that this writer, or that writer, is hated. Wrong. Some of us are disliked. Mariotti? Truly hated.
  64.  
    I think I've said enough about Mariotti. In closing, I will say this: Jay, PLEASE drop the soap in the shower
  65.  
    If Jay'd been working, he'd have the alibi of all those people who saw him in locker room, interviewing players. Oh, right. Never mind
  66.  
    Look, there's nothing funny about domestic abuse. Except for when Mariotti is accused. And then it's absolutely hilarious.
  67.  
    Hell, I might just get myself arrested in L.A. so I can share a cell with sweet lil' Jay. But then, I'd have to take a number. He's so cute!
  68.  
    Where's the rest of the story? That, after (allegedly) hitting his girlfriend, that she then kicked Mariotti's ass for 45 minutes?
  69.  
    Oh to be a fly on the wall in Ozzie Guillen's house ... or to be at Guillen's pregame media briefing later today in Kansas City
  70.  
    Mariotti accused of hitting his girlfriend? I can't believe it. Mariotti has a girlfriend??!?!
  71.  
    Only a coward hits a woman. So you can't possibly believe Mariotti would hit a woman unless you believe he's a coward. Oh, wait ...
  72.  
    So. Jay Mariotti, huh? Where. Do. I. Be. Gin.
  73. Update: More screen grabs.
