"My blog was taken off the old ESPN Sucks fan group" & have added it to the new ESPN Sucks group!
Having recently read an article about ESPN tactic's towards a certain Denver journalist I feel inclined to speak my mind about the Boo-yah network. Let me first state I enjoy Mike and Mike in the morning and also was an avid watcher of Around the Horn and PTI during college. Sorry Rome stay in SoCal your not welcome in Chicago!
Now on to my point. First, the "Who's Now" segment has got to be the worst segment in ESPN history. This segment is nothing more an a time filler during a slow part of the sports season. Stop wasting my time with garbage. Second, I don't want to constantly watch former athletes giving their opinion. At first a few former coaches and player were okay. Now it has gotten completely out of hand, Dee Brown, Stink, Oral, Michael Ervin and many others. It just too many talking heads giving me little information. Especially when they literally need to repeat the question in their answer. It shows their lack of intelligence and spontaneity, I expect more out of a TV show host (or whatever you would call them).
Next point the lack of actual reporting that goes on, many times their "breaking news" isn't really breaking news or anything or the sort. When Dwight Freeney signs a contract is that REALLY breaking news. The combination of ABC and ESPN has only made things so much more unbearable, and each network uses the other to cross promote it's garbage programming.
My final point ESPN's website, why not actually provide information instead of charging people as an "insider". Their website is little more than a promotional tool and money maker. They need a visa logo on the main page because that's how water down their content is.
I lost all respect for the Eastern Seaboard Programming Network when they yanked "playmakers" a good show because of pressure from the NFL. Now I'm stuck with Stu Scott's show Teammates (I know the show is gone but is a great example of the garbage they produce).
