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

I thought ESPN Classic closed down a long time ago because DTV didn't carry it (and they carry almost everything Sports related expect PAC 12 Network).

Once the NFL pulled their programming(or most of it)such as This Week in Pro Football,NFL Game of the Week and various team highlight films from ESPN Classic then it had little chance for survival.

NBCSN (next to CBS Sports Network) was one of worst sports networks ever because I lost count how many times they changed their name .

Madden never worked for ESPN. He was with CBS, FOX, ABC and NBC.

When did they re-hire Sage? I saw her on a late night SC. I guess she got the vax.

ESPN may have a new Sunday Night Baseball announcing crew with Karl Ravech doing play by play with David Cone and Eduardo Perez as analysts. A-Rod may get his own "Manningcast" type of show. Of course, this is all if and when baseball ever starts this year.

I didn't realize ESPN Insider was discontinued and now an ESPN+ login will work for reading ESPN paywall articles.

I have the Hulu Live forced bundle (Disney+, ESPN+), so I finally have a use for the ESPN+ portion. Don't really care for the ESPN+ streaming content.

It's been like that for at least a year. ESPN+ has lots of NHL hockey, which is nice (subject to blackouts). They also carry college basketball games exclusively, I would need it just to follow my Kansas Jayhawks team.

Never really cared for his reporting, but I liked the running gag about him having a ponytail

This woman is making a beeline for her next job at Fox News. I hope she loses this stupid suit and ESPN fires her ass.

She claims she was suspended even though she would have been off air for the same amount of time because she... contracted COVID, and her "proof" is that ESPN did not correct people who said she was suspended. And I'll readily admit that what she said made me not want to tune in to hear her, so yeah her remarks had some affect on my viewing the product.
