Naturally. Because we'll all begin mistaking ESPN for a legitimate journalistic outlet now that "Ron Burgundy" isn't appearing.
The 'E' is for 'Entertainment', & the 'N' does not stand for 'News'. Everyone would be well served to remember this when the likes of Bayless & Smith begin hollering their sure-to-be reasonable & well informed opinions on the topic of rape.
3 months ago on Ron Burgundy appearance on SportsCenter canceled
This is the dumbest, most unnecessary apology in the history of television. Come to think of it, I'm deeply offended that ESPN felt this was in any way, shape or form an issue. I trust sincere Twitter mea culpas will be immediately forthcoming ...
3 months, 3 weeks ago on Another SportsCenter anchor has to apologize for Jeremy Lin comment
I cannot speak to how a professional locker room ought to function. But
as someone who was bullied in school, I find I have no respect for a
person who apparently refuses to stand up for himself. Expecting others
to shield you from unpleasant people to the extent that you would rather
quit your job than confront a blathering jackass displays a clear lack
of basic social skills. Incognito comes off as a colossal jerk, &
Martin a self-loathing whiner. No one should be taking sides on this issue, because all involved are wrong.

The quote for (4) is incorrect. Gary Danielson exclaimed "What a win for Gus Manziel!" Had a helluva week, did Gary.

Maybe, just maybe, the problem isn't the matchup, but the idiots in sports media who will be broadcasting & covering the Series ....
4 months, 2 weeks ago on This year's World Series promises to be the most insufferable ever
Carrie Underwood is insufferable. Enough with the damn theme songs. The current Monday Night Football intro is easily the best of the bunch, mainly because all it's trying to sell is football.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on Mike Francesa hates the Sunday Night Football theme
I believe it's also a direct response to FOX Sports Live, which has a distinct "Hey, remember when watching highlights used to be fun?" style.
4 months, 3 weeks ago on There's more to Kenny Mayne's SportsCenter return than meets the eye
I imagine Rog & his team of idiots sitting down w/ a meeting agenda headed "Thursday Night Football: How can we make something awful even worse?"
4 months, 3 weeks ago on There could be more Thursday Night Football on the horizon
Nary a mention of how astoundingly bad the network's presentation of
games, suck or no, has been? Terrible broadcasters, & a completely
unwatchable mess of a pregame/half time group. It doesn't matter how
compelling the match-up, I simply cannot stand viewing football on
the NFL's own network. What I wouldn't give for a stadium sound only
feed. Honestly, how incompetent does the NFL have to be to turn a
veritable can't miss into an I-don't-want-to-watch?
4 months, 4 weeks ago on Relatively speaking, Thursday Night Football sucks
Not so much of a stretch. Bayern-Munich made Man City look like an MLS side.
5 months ago on NBC schedules EPL/MLS doubleheader
Seen? Let's not confuse being available with being watched.
5 months ago on CBS Sports Network is now seen in 53 million homes
Terrible officials are terrible. Rhoads should be thankful he doesn't coach in the Big Ten.
5 months ago on Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads goes off in postgame press conference
Nothing will ever top Don Earle's enthusiastic & entirely genuine call "He hit the post! He hit the f*ckin' post!"
5 months, 1 week ago on Hockey announcer swears after botching name
Seeing as how the networks themselves are often biased for or against
certain athletes, cities &/or teams, I'm not sure the Chelios thing
is all that unique, or worth griping about.
Assuming it is an issue, sports networks should either end the practice of hiring ex-players to be talking heads (I wish, but it ain't gonna happen), or audiences learn to accept that almost none of these people are going to be able to be objective.
5 months, 1 week ago on Chris Chelios picks his employers to win Stanley Cup on Fox Sports Live
Rece Davis' response to that Jesse Palmer line was going to be my favorite broadcasting moment of the past week, at least until Collinsworth went for broke w/ an absolute gem of willful ignorance.

This is easily my favorite Collinsworth moment, & considering how much the guy runs his mouth that's a real accomplishment.
5 months, 1 week ago on Cris Collinsworth is blissfully unaware of Aaron Hernandez's murder trial
And Orakpo appeared in one of the most annoying commercials in recent memory. Karma's a bitch.

"Slowly but surely, NBCSN is becoming the destination for hockey fans."
5 months, 1 week ago on NBCSN launching two new NHL shows
Good luck with your internship at the NBC Sports Network! I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that you score a coveted position on one of their awesome doe estrus infomercials ... er, hunting shows!
5 months, 2 weeks ago on NBCSN cancels Michelle Beadle's show The Crossover
NBC has managed to take the flaming ineptitude with which they've all but completely ruined Olympic coverage & extend it to an entire sports network. Thankfully, there are more than ample alternatives for the viewing public. I only hope Michelle Beadle manages to escape the ignorant clutches of NBCSN, & soon.
