Haughty, 'affirmative-action' elites at ESPN have lost the respect of 98% of their audience. It has become the MTV of sports. And you have THEM to thank for your cable bill being so high.
3 weeks ago on ESPN really wants you to know the result of the Broncos-Chiefs game
I'm sure CBS is 'cheering' its 'win.' But CBS is reaping high ad rates thanks to the eyeballs that cable companies deliver. Seems to me the 'whining' by networks is them forgetting who's providing them with their viewers.

sports media hacks are the dumbest people walking the planet. The radio hacks have no heavy lifting to do, aside from reading Hair Club for Men ad copy.
1 month, 1 week ago on The Eternal Struggle: Mike Francesa vs Prank Callers
What outsiders don't realize is that curmudgeon Shaughnessy toils behind a $0.99 'pay-wall' at The Boston Globe, limiting his exposure to the twelve people who have actually signed up. It's a self-imposed exile for probably the worst of Boston's sports media hacks. Which is rife with them.
1 month, 2 weeks ago on Dan Shaughnessy wants more hate and violence in this year's World Series
ESPN has taken a decided Leftist political tone, which is something NO ONE wants from a 'sports' station. Then there are the 'too-full-of-themselves' media hacks whose faces and voices become utterly tiresome to watch and listen to. These people know who they are, but there's an air of 'entitlement' with each and every one of them.
5 months ago on How worried should ESPN be about declining ratings?
ESPN is interjecting political ideology into every feature, a la Bob Costas and his 'anti-gun rant' to help the 'cause.' You can see it everywhere, and I've given up on ESPN entirely because of it. "Would Aaron Hernandez be behind bars if we had better gun laws? We'll have that answer NEXT!"

With all due respect to Naoko, the real 'news' is who NESN decides to KEEP. The insipid and insufferable Tommy Caron and Jackie Edwards are two of the most irritating, full-of-themselves sports media hacks dotting Boston's landscape. And in a city full of that type, that's saying something. Caron has a nails-on-chalkboard voice that he uses like an entitled sledgehammer. Edwards is a yellow-teethed child that probably won't grow up. He adores his own ability to say in 20 flowery words that more sensible people can say in ten. But there they both are: stuck to NESN like gum to a shoe.

'Big Deal Local TeeVee Nooze' is nothing but glue holding endless banks of commercials together. Those insufferable promotions of the sort that caused THIS fiasco ("Will it be SUNNY tomorrow? I'll have that answer Nexxxxxxxxt!!!") are really pleas for you to watch their COMMERCIALS during the 'Nooze,' which is full of 'stories' that say, "officials aren't sure of the cause of the fire," and "Officials aren't commenting," and 'No word yet on how the crash occurred."

My cable bill is astronomically high thanks almost single-handedly to ESPN. I would say that 70% of that monthly bill goes to ESPN, so how hypocritical of them to whine about 'financial difficulties.' They'll also whine that 'rights' fees are high, but ESPN still clears a gigantic profit in spite of that.
5 months, 3 weeks ago on Howie Schwab laid off by ESPN
Edwards is insufferable. With a 'Connecticut School of Broadcasting' pedigree, he epitomizes the term, 'Sports Media Hack.' The Bruins started shining in the Playoffs about when he stopped calling the games on local TV. Coincidence? Nope.

It's wonderful seeing sports media hacks bludgeon each other. Thin-skinned and limp-wristed (see: purple shirt), you know blows will be landed for all of us to see and cheer.
6 months, 1 week ago on Mike Francesa rips the "Nameless, Faceless" John Buccigross
Happily, massively annoying Bruins action-caller Jackie Edwards is nowhere to be found. Edwards, he of the 'Connecticut School of Broadcasting' pedigree, never misses an opportunity to create a soliloquy even though the opportunity might not really be there to do so. But Edwards has a flowery verbal hammer, so everything in a hockey game represents a nail to him. Also happily, we've seen and heard the last of Edwards for this season.

My cable bill is astronomical solely because of ESPN, so any layoffs occurring there can only be laid at the feet of their so-called 'A-list' 'talent,' who are vacuuming up paychecks the size of Texas. One-percenters, indeed.

You need to understand that Shaughnessy is a bitter, angry man. Toiling away at an uber-Leftist newspaper will foster that. But more to his bitterness: He's locked behind The Globe's 99-cent-per-month paywall. Which nobody buys. Imagine writing a column and, through that effort, realizing that six people may see it and three will read it. You'd bring your seething rage home, too, and that's why we pray for the well-being of the children and pets in Shaughnessy's uber-rich manse. What you will see, soon, is the announcement of Shaughnessy's retirement. A culmination of climbing rage and falling talent.

Ley has that air of 'entitlement' swirling about him...a haughty demeanor despite being a lowly sports media hack. There's a lot of deserved disdain for sports media hacks, which is why a site like this exists. And we know that sports media hacks can't stay away from web sites focusing on their industry any more than they can stay away from mirrors. Which, rolled all together, is why this animated GIF is among the best ever.

What Jack Edwards does is no different than a woman trying to put makeup on while driving down a highway at 80 MPH. We'd flip the bird to him just as we would to her. Edwards is a hockey play-by-play hack who wishes he were a pipe-smoking, tweed-jacketed poet instead.
