It pretty much looks like what the soccer section looked like already.

I know everyone will say it sucks, because they hate change, lets accept why this is changing, same reason every other site is, it is about sites being more tablet and smartphone friendly. The PC and laptop are falling behind them, you just have to accept that is the way things are going right now until the next big thing comes along.

i think its good the way its done now for the most part, major league baseball does it, and for the most part, i actually feel it hurts their postseason.

its pretty early to make decisions on whether this will be good or not, I'm going to take a wait and see approach. It'd be good if a few other familiar faces show up from time to time, kind of how Girl Meets World works.

@siddzork they are still bigger names who draw more mainstream attention, regardless of their knowledge of basketball. entertainment is going to defeat basketball analysis with the majority of the viewing audience.

they could consider the idea of starting the European league season 1-2 weeks earlier each of the 4 years prior to the event. by the time 4 years rolls along, it would possibly open the door for there to be a window to orchestrate it without affecting European leagues too much.

@DavidRieder Lundquist is a legend who knows how to call big games. When you reach his age, it's best to only use him in this role. There's no point in having him call 80 games a season at this point.

@eslrush take less money, because they are dumb? espn did great things with the FIFA world cup and i'm sure they will do the same with this event. I never doubt ESPN to get things done right.


So stop hating change, or at least go back to living under your rock.

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.

@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.

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.


This column exists because Matt Yoder couldn't think of anything better to write today, So lets bash College Football out of right field, at a time where no one's really caring about college football.

@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.
