 I didn’t see Adam in the locker room or the training room today.


His sources told him.


Fisher is not a fan of Adam Schefter.


There's a long line ahead of you, coach.

"He was talking about not being an interview subject for media"


Can someone from ESBM please tell me what viable information one can obtain or ascertain from interviewing someone from the media?

If you listen carefully, Sam was not taking a shower.  He was only "KINDA" taking a shower.

I wouldn't take the time to watch any of those four games.  It's still summer anyways.

Are they becoming more self-aware?  I don't think that's possible.

It's just another example of someone in the media trying to become part of the story.  I don't need to be told who is playing while I'm watching a game on TV.  I know what the Washington uniforms look like.  i would prefer just the highlights and the game, thank you.

How are ESPN and SI any different than a 19th Century children's sweat shop?  I want to congratulate them on making all that money off the back of a 13 year old.

All any of their suspensions do is change the focus from "the controversy" towards the four-letter network.

When you break down that $1 million dollars over a year's period of time and divide by 100 stations, it comes to about $1000 a month per station.   That's much ado about nothing.

"Considering the laundry list of past ESPN suspensions, it comes as a great surprise."

Is anyone surprised ESPN followed the NFL's lead for appropriate suspensions?  That's what makes this story so ironic.

Fox is pulling $1.2 million in advertising from 100 stations nationwide.  That's $12,000 a year per station, or $1,000 a month.  Big deal.

@TomSmith9 I think the event would be more closely compared to "background noise" or a "talk show" than a "sporting event".

@panderson1988 I watched the first inning when Jeter made a nice play in the field and then doubled and scored.  I thought they were just talking about a player getting it done on the field.  After another half inning I realized it was orchestrated and turned the game off.

@JoshTheRadioDude That's what happens when you hire someone based on talent and not looks.  Craig Sager is a good sideline guy, but his sports coats say "look at me" just like EA's keyhole moment.

The better lawsuit would be that ESPN purposely scheduled a game at 8 pm ET on Sunday when they knew full well that it would not end until well past midnight and cause some in attendance to have to modify their sleeping patterns which caused one man to lose his job the next day for being late to work.

What are you talking about?  This is perfect for Twitter and its twits.  They're making a big deal out of the least significant player in a meaningless game.


This kind of thing has Twitter written all over it.  It would be akin to voting on "best actor with only one line in a movie."

I have an inverse theory when it comes to watching ESPN events.  The more they promote it, the less likely I am to tune in knowing they have to make that up in ad time and space.


Then again, if it's not live athletic competion, I'm not watching anyway.

@DanielOrmsby Of course you did Daniel.  When the four-letter network says jump; you ask how high.  If they televised LeBron vs. Johnny Football playing darts at 3 am, you would tune in ready to go with a sub-standard sandwich in one hand while updating your aggressive insurance and following Bayless' tweets on your phone with the other hand.
