Fantasy Football Now drew 111,000 viewers at 10 AM because hardly anyone knew it was on at that time, due to espn's lack of promoting it, i didn't know it was on until 959am that day.

@floyd_pink its really easy to place blame on Goodell, but if he goes, who takes his place that can change things? the commissioner is just a puppet when you compare the problems that exist everywhere else, from greedy players, greedy executives, and most importantly, greedy owners,  if you want real  change, you have to make changes everywhere, not just at the top. And Goodell is not really the top, because he just panders to owners.

the  negative headlines, other than the Redskins thing, are a result of people making bad decisions in life. a handful out of about 2000 players, and thousands of former players will consist of a few people who make bad choices, ad those kinds of people will exist in any organization. i really can't place a significant amount of blame the nfl for Rice beating his g/f, Sharper raping women, Hernandez killing people, and Incognito being a huge douche.

@DavidNascarguyHeller i'm not sorry for those who not happy and respond with profanities, as shown in those tweets. You deserve to get treated the way you treat others. For those who act professionally, you deserve better.

Saying someone's first pitch was better than 50 cent's is like saying your team's defense was better than The Dallas Cowboy's was last year. Not a compliment.

maybe if people went to or watched their games...instead of trading away your leading scorer and then firing your coach after a conference finals appearance. who would want to get behind a team like that?

@stuie299 breaking news, big markets have alot of people in them, so of course from a business standpoint that's going to be the case, and even when the lakers are bad they get big publicity as a dumpster fire, same can be said for the Redskins awful run in 2013. it's not about how good you are, it's how popular you are.

@brandonfranze @Beaube Nett because teams do not want to risk losing the valuable 1 point they get from getting to OT, especially when you see how every point can matter in today's NHL. The best thing to do would give teams who win in regulation 3 points, like they do in the Olympics, and you will see teams taking a few more chances later in the game.

unless your mock draft got it 100 percent right, you get an F. That's how it should work.

I really enjoyed the duo when watching Sharks broadcasts. Sad to hear that news, I wish him the best. This could open the door for Jamie Baker to move up from radio broadcasts. He has done a few TV broadcasts over the past few seasons and has done fine, but it won't be the same without Drew alongside Randy.

@awful the nfl, mlb and nba are in a spot where massive money is changing hands with their tv contracts and only network tv can compete for it. Hockey is where it's hardcore fans will watch no matter what the channel. if a cable mogul showed up with billions and won Superbowl rights, the Superbowl would be on cable. people need to stop realizing that cable is not inferior to network tv, because cable is actually catching up with network tv.

i really do not think this is a major issue. i'm pretty certain most people have cable or access to nbc sports programming on their website or phone/tablet app. seriously, who still has the rabbit ears tv that only has the network channels? it's not the 1990s it's 2014. 

nbcuniversal wants nbcsn to have ratings success so its understandable that it keeps 2 games on nbcsn.

expanding to 34 and eventually 36 will happen at some point in the next decade, people will complain about the product being watered down, but many are also saying this years draft was one of the deepest ever in talent, and drafts are only going to get deeper in talent, so that claim is so cliche now. The salary cap already forces teams to carry a lot of unproven talent on their rosters anyway. It's just more places for veterans that are stuck in limbo to play.

No offense to Katie, I do not hate her, but is this supposed to be funny? Maybe if she hadn't made a career of not being funny with the no filter segments, and attacking people in a failed attempt to be funny and failing at it, maybe she would still have a tv show.


I'm not trying to bring her down, i'd be happy for her if she succeeded, but it is clear to me why she is not finding success, she's trying to do things she is just not good at, and If she were a man, she would be almost completely irrelevant right now. Just how society is.

Seriously, Katie Nolan is just not funny, half her jokes are awful puns, the other half are jokes about Rob Ryan being fat. I don't hate her personally, but no one would care who she was if she didn't have lady parts. Want proof? Transcribe her words form her No Filter Segments into text then have people read it without knowing who they are from, not knowing her gender, then see what reactions they get.

People like pretty women, i understand that's how it works. But there's hundreds of thousands of them, and if want funny, you can find funnier.

While WWE didn't double the value of their contract with NBC Universal, they did negotiate an increase over their old deal, which is good considering wrestling is still in a down period. The stock dropped because they didn't get the jackpot price they were promising, which was kind of unrealistic, but those claims probably got more than they would have gotten if they had not made those claims otherwise.

@ForeignCharacter Albert could be seen as a potential successor to Doc Emrick at some point, even though I don't see Emrick retiring any time soon (even though he's 67), it's good idea to groom a successor like CBC did when they first brought in Jim Hughson in 2005 and eventually he became the lead announcer.
