Woo-hoo! More time available to devote to brainless hot takes without knowledgeable analysis needlessly dragging things down!

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

I've got Mike and Mike in the background and it's barely listenable (Greeny's out today, replaced by some robot).

That show has been my go-to while I'm getting ready in the morning for the last 10+ years. Those guys are great together but boring apart. I'm done.

The only shows worth watching on ESPN now are PTI and Monday Night Football, plus checking out the occasional gymnastics event or baseball game.

Sad.

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

M&M w/o Greenie is unlistenable. Honestly, Golic doesn't know shit about anything and is mostly just contrarian to be contrarian.

Yep, Depending on the replacement, the show is often better when Greeny has a different co-host. Booger for example is great with Greeny. Golic trying to break down film or give an insightful opinion on anything is laughable.

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

I think Golic and Trey Wingo have pretty good chemistry together. They've known each other for a long time and it shows. Obviously the show wont be as good, but I don't think it will terrible.

Too Bad. Schlereth was one my favorites to listen too.
I enjoyed his insights into the O-Line.

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

So I caught some of the ESPY Awards last night.

Did they ever get around to giving out any awards for athletetic achievements in 2016? If so I must have missed that part. Though to be fair I probably only saw 80-90% percent of the broadcast.

Schlereth was about the last analyst I could stand on ESPN.

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

Mike & Mike will end on Nov 17. Mike Golic & Trey Wingo's show will debut on Nov 27.

The new ESPN Radio morning show co-hosted by Mike Golic and Trey Wingo officially has a start date.

According to an ESPN release, Golic & Wingo will debut Nov. 27, 10 days after Mike & Mike, with Golic and Mike Greenberg, ends its nearly 18-year run.

The Golic-Wingo partnership was rumored for months, then reported on May 2 and officially announced by ESPN two weeks later. Golic & Wingo will air from 6-10 a.m. ET every weekday, with Golic’s son Mike Jr. joining the program from 6-7 a.m.

Greenberg will host a morning television show on ESPN starting on Jan. 1, 2018.

The problem with the ESPY's is sport is entirely objective. Best football team,best female tennis player,best nba team etc,is whoever won the title.

While in a regular award show,best film,song,tv show etc is entirely subjective so their is actual suspene in who wins.

Really surprised they ever get viewers

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

Fuck ESPN and their love for Lavar Ball!! I had to unfollow them on every social media platform cause all they fucking talk is about this asshole. Seriously, who the fuck cares about Lavar other than himself? Why do sport fans have to tolerate this self promoting imbecile. I'm seriously waiting for someone to know those yellow teeth off his mouth.

And talking about self promoting assholes, is ESPN going to continue making a story out of whatever Stephen A says our of his asshole? Last year it was feuding with Durant to the point that Stephen A threatened him on TV and now is Lebron? ESPN did themselves a favor getting rid of the Chris Broussard. They need to rid themselves of Stephen A and bring back David Aldridge or give more face time to Woj, who are 100% more credible that this buffoon.

Woj is great, but I'm not so sure he's that great of an on air personality yet. That's all Steven A (or at least this incarnation of him) is at this point, a personality that drives viewership, which is exactly what they want. Like bringing sports talk radio to TV.

I'm pretty sure First Take is still one of their highest rated programs. And that's basically he and Kellerman doing hot takes.

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

I think of Steven A (and a few others) as the Limbaugh/Hannity of sports talk. Total worthless blowhards, but all 3 definitely have a sizable audience. And it doesn't matter to bean counters if they people all listening because they love them or hate them. They key is they are listening.

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



This will help ...

https://www.si.com/extra-mustard/201...harlottesville

Quote:
In the wake of the white supremacist rallies in Charlottesville, Va., ESPN has pulled announcer Robert Lee from broadcasting University of Virginia football games because he shares a name with the famous Confederate general Robert E. Lee, according to Outkick the Coverage's Clay Travis.

Travis discussed the removal of Lee, who is of Asian descent, on Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight."

ESPN reportedly provided Outkick the Coverage with the following statement:

We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. Its a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.

White nationalists gathered in Charlottesville, Va. on Aug. 12 to protest the taking down of a statue of Robert E. Lee. White nationalist marched on Virginia's campus with torches, chanted racial slurs and intimidated counter-protestors. One woman was killed when a white supremacist drove a car into a group of counter-protestors.

ESPN, which has been accused of having a liberal bias, noted that the decision was not mandated by the company's executives and that re-assignments happen all the time.

It became an issue because they absurdly made it one. Maybe for their next 30 for 30 documentary they can turn the mirror on themselves and cover the story of a pathetic and cowardly network that thought their moronically fragile audience would be triggered by an Asian commentator named Robert Lee. If only his name was "Ho Lee Fuk" this all could have been avoided. No, wait, that still has Lee in it. Get Sum Ting Wong on a plane. Just don't let him fly it.

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

I'll be back later. I need to do some research and pray I can find a confederate general named Stephen A. Smith.
