Lets not sugarcoat this.Its just a ploy to save money by cutting the staff of anchors in half. And considering there a large number of awful SC anchors nowadays, I don't blame them for that.


That being said, I enjoyed watching Anderson and Czarniak as a team and will miss that chemistry they had.

not really a surprise here. Stone has been the host of almost all of the soccer shows since FS1 launched in 2013.

@Matt_Zemek @bflo360 regardless of the mistake Catalon made last year, i don't think that's going to play a part in deciding if he comes back or not as they have clearly moved on from it and used him quite often during the nfl season. They may use both and possibly drop Dedes or Anderson, but we will see what they do whenever they make that announcement.

i think it depends on your point of view, if you are the media and do not know him personally, maybe that's where she is coming from. family, players, people in the Yankee organization. Point the finger at yourself media, because you are disliked by people just as much as A Rod if not more.

wonder which show will end up getting cancelled faster, this one, or CGW.

BASH COLUMN ALERT. Can we at least let this one season of the playoff on New Years Eve play out before the loser internet takes a big poop on this? People will still watch, not everyone goes out on New Years Eve nowadays, i still went out and had The Orange Bowl on the TV where I went.

@eslrush first of all us open tennis will end before world cup will start.

And last I checked ESPN is the WORLDWIDE LEADER IN SPORTS, not NBCSN or FS1. and with the amount of money ESPN will spend, they aren't going to shove it into the background. we would have seen numerous matches relegated to CNBC and FS2, and those channels bombard us with college football on September weekends as well.


Last I checked ESPN did epic thinsg with the World Cup, so much so that people fear FOX will kill with awful coverage in 2018.


Take less money, if that's such a great idea, why is it you don't you take less money to do a your job? You want to get ahead, you go ahead with something different. In the end NHL made a right decision.

there are Pros and cons, teams like to unveil special 3rd jerseys which are almost always dark. they want those uniforms worn at home games to sell them. i say alternate it where its one way the first half of the season, the other in the second half. that will appease both sides, as far as playoffs go, let the team with home ice decide or something.

can we at least have the game play out before dubbing it a dumpster fire? No way it can be as bad as that 1979 nfc title game.


The key for Arizona is to not turn the ball over like the Falcons did on Sunday, and try to sack Cam Newton 100 times, in which they are capable of doing when you consider that OL for The Panthers is about as protective as a screen door on a submarine.

As soon as i see the name Mark Madden, i know this is garbage. Madden is a stain on the underwear of life.
 Not saying he's the guilty party here, but Madden will criticize before he shows honesty, because it brings him attention, which is what fame hogs do. He did it when he was in WCW,  he does it whenever he's on NFL Top 10 shows, he does it because he wants attention.

@DaleMoog i think they are taking it year to year. It may also depend on the city. Glendale and Miami are warm weather cities. They may be reluctant to hold a ProBowl in a city like Chicago if they ever get a Super Bowl.

way i see it, if you are addicted to legalized gambling, you lose your assets or end up in jail or court ordered rehab. Illegal gambling, you and members of your family could end up at the bottom of the river. Once big buisness get involved in the gambling industry, you'll see laws passed to crack down harder on the illegal activity as well, why? because illegal gambling cuts into the fat cat's pockets.
