According to the associated press The Eastern Seaboard Programing Network "Leader" will be working with the city of NY to create something called B.O.S.S., or the "Business of Sports School", and it will be opening its doors this September.
I have a few thoughts on this so called "school". First and foremost, who would actually consider attending a school like this? Secondly, who is going to "teach" these classes? I can see it now... Dicky V screaming at students about college basketball diaper dandies or Lou Holtz talking nonsense about the fire and passion necessary to win college football games. How about Trent Dilfer breaking down game film or maybe Eric Young giving you some insight about MLB....please stop this nonsense.
Could you imagine interviewing someone who puts the BOSS program on their resume? What marketable skills can ESPN teach anyone? I can't wait to see how much a class will cost and what classes will be offered. ESPN is completely out of control.
This so called network has routinely shown that all they are concerned about is pimping themselves for the almighty dollar. Of course any network's focus is going to be on ratings and money, however, they have so many spin offs, and cross promotions that the network is complete garbage. I just wished more people noticed this and went else where for there sports knowledge. With the internet , sports is more accessible then ever so do yourself a favor and turn off "teammates" and "Whose Now" and get the real story else where.
