Reminded me of commentary and opinion by Fox News after a Republican political speech on TV. Shamelessly biased. It was not just Luntz and Pam Oliver but also Jay Glazer singing the praises of Goodell's speech. Glazer was more gaurded, but said that the noise around Goodell would not quite down because of the media, implying that Goodell handled his business and if this continues its because the media outlets are keeping it going since Goodell has put this to rest with his speech.

Disturbing and sad. Lets see how Roger G. spins this. Now that he has viewed this video for the first time- allegedly... Sugar Ray Rice should get at least a year, if not banned. How could the police not charge this guy? That's the real question

You guys are so gullible... "She urged me to put this out there". Let's be honest, Her publicist told her to put it out there on the internet. No way she doesnt discuss with her pub before even doing it. Why take a picture at all and oh right at the moment that captures the cut


Would have been more sincere if she kept it private and then someone asked her why.

Didn't think it was possible but ESPN covers the major tennis events much better than the networks ever could. Througout the year having the same consistant announcers and crew cover not only the majors but the tourneys in between, ESPN has stepped up similar to the world cup in production and coverage.

I don't get how Faux claims its the "fun" network. I'll take Stan Verrett and Neil Everett or Jay Harris, Steve Levey or Bucci, Van Pelt, Anderson, Flores or Mayne any day over that Jay and Dan disaster. In fact if Faux hires anyone of those guys I might watch. Mike Hill was a good steal from Bristol and I like his style and chops, but the rest of their crew seems b-list like or tries too hard to be funny. Sports itself is entertaining, it's like Faux Sports almost wants to do highlights with a laugh track

Sure its all Berman's fault.  Lowest WEEKEND ratings at the Masters since '57 because Berman and ESPN had such an effect  that people couldn't even tune in on the WEEKEND when they aren't even announcing since its exclusively on CBS on the WEEKEND...Berman even chased viewers away from the FINAL round of the U.S. Open even though they weren't announcing on Sunday.  You sure are a genius scallon!

@Mauch64   So dont watch. It's Entertainment stupid. Duh you know, like any award show.

No more overkill than the Oscars handing out statues to its own which is a publicity contest or Emmys best on TV totally subjective BS. 


Guys like Mauch64 have no idea how to run a business. Look at the revenues ESPN pulls in for Disney. If the question is "why do they put on this trite meaningless broadcast yearly" the answer is "because they can". You are obviously closing in on 50 years of age and like the grumpy oldtimer you are, everything is 

probably to much to handle

Why is it if FS1 hypes itself as the "fun" alternative and have their two anchors running around the set like idiots they are somehow not themselves the news? I did not see much build-up to the set change on ESPN until 1 or 2 days before it happened. I bet unless people read about it on a site like this they knew nothing the set change. It seems it was a big build up in your mind because you've been reporting on it for many many months, not ESPN with countless promo's. If ESPN were to go away, this site would be done.

ESPN has figured out that sports is just entertainment, and this draft event which they pretty much created by first broadcasting it in 89 is a prime example. NFLN does a good job, but they treat the draft like its a presidential news event, way too serious. People on this site love to hate on ESPN but I give them a better grade overall because its a far more entertaining watching experience than NFLN

Modesty is never part of any corporate rah rah event. That said ESPN has had a what 30 year headstart on building the brand, so it's like an adult picking on a child. They are the cash cow for Disney no doubt about it, and though people love to "hate" on the self professed WWL, no one can dispute the numbers they rake in.

Give FS1 time. It will draw better numbers with better games. Maybe not Duke, UNC type numbers, thats a given, but with Louisville and a return to prominance for Georgetown and UConn will help. All it takes is one must see player in the leauge and fortiunes will change.


As far as the other programming, they need to blow-up most of the shows on. Too much non-sense and no talents. PTI is still a winner and ATH is tolarble. I still like that Beadle just returned to. For me SC depends on the anchors but it still seems more complete than FSL which is like nails on a blackboard with those two idiots Dan and Jay and their often forced comedic act.The guys on when the Jay and Dan are off are even worse....
