BELLY TO BELLY: In N.Y., Richard Sandomir notes Yankees radio play-by-play announcer John Sterling is a “singular, divisive, much-debated personality,” who seems likely to “move with the Yankees’ radio rights next season” from WCBS-AM to WFAN-AM. If Sterling returns, with or without analyst Suzyn Waldman, it “will not be because he is a great broadcaster.” He is “frequently awful and laughable -- yet unforgettable in his overblown way.” His return would “seem to be predicated on lengthy service as a Yankees homer” (N.Y. TIMES, 9/20).
TOO MANY EYES: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he is “not at all” a fan of the camera in the Packers’ locker room for TV interviews before and after games. Rodgers: “They should get their booms and their cameras out of the team huddles as well before the game. Especially when they are pushing me away to get inside.” He added of last week’s Broncos-Giants game, “There are two brothers who are going to shake their hands after the game. They can’t even get to each another. I mean, how these people get credentials is unbelievable. They let them on the field. They can’t even walk over to shake hands with each other. That to me is ridiculous” (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 9/19).
