Love how the pathetic BBWAA writers are screaming because their stranglehold on a corrupt and sordid process is being broken.. reminds me of when traditional columnists scoffed at Internet journalism and blogs (many still do).
Maybe they should look at what a joke they've become long before they get too angry at a guy for finally challenging the process

It was hilarious how all ESPN shows were clearly "avoiding" this or basically gave the segment about as much time as SportsCenter shows NHL highlights. Clearly, a memo went out across Bristol that they'd most likely be sent home if the documentary was brought up.

I think you forgot to mention that Turner spent $200m on Bleacher Report. If that doesn't land you a pink slip alone, I'm not sure what will. Turner + Sports is as big of a joke as CNN is.
They get better numbers running Big Bang Theory and Family Guy reruns than these MLB playoffs and one has to imagine that they're in orders of magnitude cheaper to air these. Outside of the NBA, where TNT pays out the butt for exclusive games and good matchups, they benefit from the pure casual fan, which will tune-in, but also the NBA/TNT relationship.

I still find it funny that one of the most progressive and liberal networks airs hunting shows. They're all about their beliefs until they aren't or the green gets in the way?

To start, how can you let a known OKST. hater be associated, let alone contribute to a report on that school? It'd be like letting Selena Roberts cover Duke LAX.
Best post on the "SI Expose" I've found is this:
Otherwise, by Wednesday, ESPN had basically buried this and started featuring McMurphy's piece. IE: Dead.

@soxfan315 2+3 = valid. First point: I read somewhere (sorry, I can't find t he article) that beIN, with all of its Oil-money (remember who owns it) heavily outbid everyone to the point where any other network was priced completely out. Is it true?

@stholeary It means that the sport is growing. Nothing more. Only delusional soccer nuts will proclaim anything more. This piece wasn't that.
@stholeary I wonder if their window has to do with the NBCSN contract where ESPN2 is only allowed to take an overflow game that is at an odd hour?
Great piece here.
Isn't it amazing that when Bristol wants to stop the clown show and do some great things, they just knock it home?
Had to lose some over that horrible opening show

Lomas was always one of the most vocal guys on ESPN's platforms when defending the players and lawsuits, too.
I wouldn't be surprised if it's one of those unspoken things that guys talk less about it (the ones involved) and a wink/nod disapproval is given to any talk about it
3 months, 1 week ago on Lomas Brown wonders if ESPN released him due to concussion lawsuit
All time player but TV is clearly not something he seems to enjoy doing. I always got the impression he wanted as little tv minutes as possible but ESPN milked him on TV because virtually everyone respects him. Probably for the best..

You realize who PBS gets most of their funding from, right?
You need more independent outlets not getting funding from something they're supposed to cover in a credible manner.

As I said on a previous post, ABC has a long history of burying any journalism that hits them financially or that does not fit the Mouse and their agenda. No surprise here.
Remember with ABC(ESPN): Mouse is the only thing that matters. Their history in burrying not just sports journalism but anything that affects this or their agenda is well documented.
