    How Should Erin Burnett And Mark Haines Settle Yesterday’s Tiff?

    Yesterday, while discussing the blown Tigers call, Mark Haines told Erin Burnett that her cavalier attitude about the whole thing (EB thought it was NBD) was the reason “women shouldn’t be in charge of sports.” Erin did not appreciate that and things got noticeably tense!

    Is Erin Burnett Going To Go Veronica Corningstone On Mark Haines’ Ass?

    [via BI] I only ask because she herself suggested there might be some bringing of pain in the break room later, following a debate they had on last night’s blown call. Erin thought it was no big deal and doesn’t get what people are getting so bent out of shape about. Mark felt a tad […]
