I would like to hire some people from the NFL for my business. They always find a way to make more money, no matter what.

ESPN wants to be a monopoly in the worst way. Nothing is too conspiratorial about them to believe this story.

There is a kind of old-school, new-school divide when it comes to fandom, it seems. The older folks still believe in collegiality but the younger fans are all about tribal identity. I will say that the S-E-C fans have given the rest of us a lesson of the importance of following conference games.

As long as there are still people with more money than sense around, sports gouging will continue for the foreseeable future.

I don't know if they'd be successful but I think this is the direction of sports and entertainment that aren't superpopular like the NFL, NBA, MLB, etc.. Look at the networks that already have 100 different shows discussing just the NFL. Meanwhile, association football only has two shows in English (and Fox just yanked one of them "until later").The WWE should just go all the way and put Raw and Smackdown on their streaming service as well.

Well, if reports are true, FS1 is getting a piece of MLS. So that is another block of programming they are filling up. NBA is a biggie, for sure, but I think the Big Ten is the one I hope they'd get. ESPN is slowly but surely becoming ESECPN and ACCESPN. Look at how poorly treated the Big Ten is over there. I wish more sports organizations look beyond ESECPN for exposure. People can be convinced to watch with some good word of mouth.

@CLE_Chiver@awfulannouncingLet's wait and see before declaring this to be another XFL.
I guess association football in this country refuses to die despite the best efforts of its detractors. Also, unmentioned, is the fact ESPN is losing NASCAR after this year. That is a huge factor as to why ESPN wants to re-up with MLS. A lot of hours are going to be cleared in the summer months going forward. They need something to fill them because college baseball, softball and little league aren't nearly enough.

For the longest time, I never got the logic of having so much material to work with in having the Olympics and not air as much of it as possible live on a fairly distributed channel. Slowly but surely, NBC is moving away from a model that no longer can work in the 21st Century.

It would seem to me that Fatcessa could help CBS Sports Network get some needed visibility, especially here in the Northeast. His show would be good leading to Jim Rome's show.

Foreign governments know that Western "journalists" have a price and they're willing to propagandize for some do-re-mi. Look at the amount of English-speaking people that staff Al-Jazeera America, RT, CCTV, etc.. Is it any different with sports?

I will say, NBC's much more open about putting association football on network television than the other three networks.

If anything, this shows how petty the ESPN people are. They hate competition, especially if it breaks their monopoly on properties. Hopefully, the Big Ten will leave ESPN in their next contract. ESPN is all about SEC and ACC and have it out for the B1G. That's one clue that they might not be able to keep them.

@whatupay4sports @WaltGekko And the problem with that is there may not be enough content for an NBCSN2 even with the NBA. There isn't enough content right now for NBCSN1, if you don't count the event conflicts.
NBC has to find the right balance for fall, winter, spring and summer sports leagues. ESPN, for years, had a near monopoly on sports rights and could bump up events for other events whenever they feel like it. That's why fans of NHL and MLS team were complaining for years.
