The beauty of really not listening to the announcers is you don't have to put up with this crap.

" he that he was simply giving Hunter a chance to respond to his critics."
I see the reporter is a prick. Hunter doesn't need him for that.

@ShawnDiIorio @DaleMoog if your area wasn't getting MN/DET in the first place, you won't get it at 425 either.

I've just learned to assume that ESPN gets all their info from someone else.

Let's remember something here. All the SEC is doing is providing the best supply of games to the demand of their TV partners, who want 13 weeks of inventory, not just 8-9.

@clt0002 My guess is ESPN's totem pole is configured based solely on Twitter followers.

@DonCavazos Why are surprised that the four-letter network went with the entertainment angle ahead of the facts?
Does this fulfill part of Duke's TV contract with ESPN?

@skyboy116 @stevelepore NO, it's because they have traditionally had GREAT ratings, which are obviously sinking with the team as the season goes on.

Let's don't give the four-letter network too much credit. Army-Navy is the only game that day, and they used Veterans Day to make the announcement.

When the Ravens' do things which are deemed later to be inappropriate, they know how to get into full 'damage control' mode.

Maybe it's an urban myth, but i heard a story that they had trouble keeping Moss away from a girl down the street while in HS. His family was afraid to tell him it was his half-sister.

@mattzemek @sir boxington A good beat-reporter or columnist doesn't need a coach's post game comments to write a game story. It was 45-42. That's enough to fill the space needed. He'll talk to you on Tuesday and Wednesday when space is harder to fill.
I also wouldn't say he acted like a 'jerk', nor became a small man because of it.
There was not a blackout of the late CBS game in STL. I watched DEN-NE on the local station.

Don't give me "the people who, by amplifying his quips and quotes, have added to his legend and stature through the prism of the printed word and the mass-distributed image."
The media needs Spurrier more than he needs them.
@Boxingnut4324 @sir boxington The originals rarely included ESPN personalities commenting on the stories. They had family members, coaches, etc. The new ones are littered with Skip Bayless, Mike Greenberg, et al commenting on the happenings of the story. Greenberg was in college when Bo Jackson and the Boz were rising collegiate and professional stars. Why would his comments hold any water, or better yet, why were they included?
The answer is the ESPN-ization of the documentaries.

Fans on Twitter immediately wanted to know why we were not reporting it on the broadcast.
Why would someone who already knows the information care if the network reported on it or not?

The original 30 documentaries were all pretty good and must see TV. Now that they have been ESPN-ized, I haven't set aside one minute to watch them.
@TylerSmith2 @cbfowler @CBJspanberg Plenty already have.

I guess Diane Sawyer doesn't have the industry pull she once had.
They have to fill 20 minutes an hour with commercials. They don't have time for this.

If they want to make Thursday night a quality game, give the teams a bye the week before. It's feasible
that should be WOULDN'T

Yes, seriously. i would put anything past Disney/ABC/ESPN when it comes to something like this. She will be the 5-6th woman they have publicly podiumized when contracting cancer.
And they waited until October 1st to do so, that start of BCA month.
I am shaking my head thinking how they could give them worse schedule than they did in 2012-13.
5 months ago on Conversation @ http://awfulannouncing.com/2014/nfl-hit-back-espn-next-years-monday-night-football-schedule.html
I hate to say this, but I smell a ratings immersion. Did Disney make her do this? And announce it on the first day of BC Awareness Month?
"The network is airing live Ryder Cup coverage after getting Day 1 rights from ESPN. What those fans found was commercial after commercial after commercial."
I don't understand the surprise in all of this. The four-letter network demands 20 minutes of commercials per hour in every television contract they negotiate with a sports league or entity.
Why do you think it's called 'subscription' TV?
