I know this isn't the reason that ESPN made all of these layoffs last week, but it's almost a metaphor as to why this network sucks these days.
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.
