Wasn't that the general premise of Mike & Jemele's "His & Hers" show?

Looks like ESPN3 no longer carry Sugarland Skeeters baseball games. In the past they would show all their home games.

Yes, they basically just rebranded their show and move them to ESPN1 because 6pm SportsCenter ratings were down. I don't really see the problem with it. The people who just want highlights can watch ESPN News but, it's much easier to bitch about how they took away "my" SportsCenter.

Re: Is It Just Me, Or Has ESPN Been Going Down Hill?

This seems like the right place to post this news. Like him or not, this is sad.

Chris Berman's wife was killed in a car accident yesterday afternoon. Link

I read in another article that they met when Chris faked car trouble in order to ask her for help.

Re: Is It Just Me, Or Has ESPN Been Going Down Hill?

Don't know why they are doing this other than they are short staffed but ESPN has been changing the name of some of their social media page to ESPN. By this, I mean that they have renamed the Baseball Tonight Facebook page and WWE on ESPN page to simply ESPN. To me, it feels like a huge step backwards as social media is the place to go for info on everything.

Chris Berman always struck me as a very nice man and I'm very sorry to hear of his loss. He was ESPN football to me for many years.

'Mike & Mike' are officially breaking up. Greenberg will get a new show, with different co-hosts, beginning Jan 1, 2018. Golic will have a show with Trey Wingo.

He is actually going to be on the new show for an hour a day.

Jr doesn't really add anything for me other than giving me a good example of nepotism if ever I were to need one. I'm fairly confident in saying that the Greenberg show will be the better of the two shows.

Re: Is It Just Me, Or Has ESPN Been Going Down Hill?

From Maxim:

ESPN's 'Mike & Mike' Are Breaking Up After 17 Years Together, And One Mike's Son Is Pissed.

After 17 years by each other's side, Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic, the aptly named "Mike & Mike," are breaking up.

The rumored split was confirmed Tuesday at the ESPN Upfront presentation, where it was announced that Greenberg will launch his own ESPN morning show on January 1, 2018.

Golic will remain in his current role with Greenberg's seat getting filled by longtime SportsCenter host Trey Wingo.

“One of the many benefits of working at ESPN is that change and evolution are in our DNA,” Greenberg said Tuesday. “My run with Golic has been an incredible experience that I’ll always treasure, but having the chance to engage multiple voices every morning in a dialogue on each day’s sports stories will be a great new challenge.”

Greenberg's show is still being developed, but what details there are make it sound like a Today Show-style morning gabfest, which will feature "several full-time co-hosts" along with "a rotation of various guests and expert contributors."

Both Mike's spoke about the coming split on today's show in what was a bit of an emotional moment for longtime fans.

The Mikes may have been feeling glum today, but Jake Golic, son of Mike, was pissed. The 26-year-old former University of Cincinnati football player ripped ESPN in a series of tweets that have somehow not yet been deleted.

The only thing Jr is good at is looking 30 years older than he actually is.

Re: Is It Just Me, Or Has ESPN Been Going Down Hill?

ESPN are idiots and that sucks for John. But I selfishly love the move if it means we get more of him here. At this point Clayton may just stick to doing things locally. I listen to his show here in the Seattle area any time I can, but before now he has been limited given his other job. He is one of the genuinely cool guys in the business.

Re: Is It Just Me, Or Has ESPN Been Going Down Hill?

Looks like he still has his radio show, just not on air nationally. Sucks, he is great. His sports center commercial is the best one they ever did.

Re: Is It Just Me, Or Has ESPN Been Going Down Hill?

As it currently exists (unless he has another I've never heard about) there would be no point to Clayton's radio show being broadcast nationally. It's all but totally about Seattle teams. When it makes sense to be, there is a lot of talk about the whole NFL, but that's not the majority of the show.

Re: Is It Just Me, Or Has ESPN Been Going Down Hill?

Sucks about Clayton, but yeah, I'd be fine with him doing more local work.

When it was announced that Karl Ravech would get his duties scaled back, I was wondering if he'd get yanked from the Baseball Tonight podcast, and when he didn't appear the first week due to a family commitment, I thought we'd maybe heard the last of him, but he's appeared every week since.

I wouldn't be surprised if the NFL Network or Fox Sports picks Clayton up. He has enough of a fanbase and credibility to be an asset on either network.

Love Clayton but I can't imagine he brings in the younger crowd at all. Plus, he's probably expensive.

Totally agree about his commercial though! That was gold.

Re: Is It Just Me, Or Has ESPN Been Going Down Hill?

Poor Clayton is also cursed with a face that is perfect for radio. The only spot I could see him getting is the "insider" bit on one of the pre-game shows, and all those appear to be taken.
