Child athletics shouldn't be on TV like this.  Heck, HS neither.


My humble opinion.

Call me a soccer snob, but I just greatly prefer a British accent for my soccer announcers.  That and Dellacamera isn't too bad.  The Gus Johnson experiment just seems like a long, drawn-out version of the Dave O'Brien debacle.

This may be a dumb question...but why?  Won't ratings be lower, if anything?  Granted most people have cable,etc. I just don't understand the reasoning behind this.  Also, check the year at the end of paragraph two.  "...CBS taking all three games in 2017, and so on until the contract's expiration in 2014."

Why is there always a months-long delay between ombudsman? Poynter's last column was mid-November, so they'll be at least 6 months of ESPN having no one to answer to.  Probably part of their plan.

There was NO flow in this game (or most others in the tourney for that matter).  I know they have to get in their commercial breaks, but it's getting ridiculous.  10 team timeouts + 8 TV timeouts is nuts.  Maybe it's not noticed in regular games, but CBS chose to show single commercials during 30 second timeouts, negating any chance for insight from the analysts or background about the game.  Also, there should be a "no commercials in the last minute of the game" rule.  Give me some analysis of what each time should do; do not attempt to sell me something for a change.

I flipped by it for 5 seconds and heard Reilly making fun of ADHD.  'nuff said.

Twellman is such a homer.  Also he and Moreno were bickering like middle-school girls most of the night.  No one seemed to bring up the point that the first potential PK looked like a dive in addition to the 'push'.

I'll check it out.  I'm 32 (is that old?) and I enjoy King and don't really like Simmons though that may be because I can't stand the NBA.

Bilas is getting too full of himself lately.  Holding up the NBA as the paragon of offensive basketball?  Yikes.  He does realize they play longer games and no defense, right?

I DVR PTI and DLHQ every day.  I haven't watched Sportscenter in years.  Living in Wisconsin, I know that my teams (Badgers, Packers, Brewers) aren't going to be shown on Sportscenter unless something unusual happens.  Meanwhile, every episdoe features yankees, red sox, lakers, heat, etc.  Not worth my time.
