    ESPN+. Also known as the biggest mistake the UFC ever made.

    What does ESPN do when it loses 15% of its viewers over 5 years? Make their service better? Add better content? NO! ESPN takes that good content and puts it behind yet another paywall. What asswipes. An extra $6/mo for content that should be on the parent channel. No wonder they lost millions of subscriptions.

    It will serve the UFC right when they follow ESPN down its path of decline. Whats the best way to maintain your fan base? Gee...lets put our product on a rapidly declining fee based network that is fucking over its viewership with extra fees...yeah...that's the ticket. Taking a page from the Apple playbook. When your product suffers big sales declines, just raise the price!

    At the gym on the elliptical and I look up and see the Red Sox are playing the Pirates in a pre season game. Ordinarily I think of Grapefruit League baseball as the sort of thing that Iíll use to kill time in Purgatory but I figured what the fuck Iím to depressed for CNN today. I start watching what is essentially a talk show with a game being played in the background. Iím not even sure the people yawping even knew there was a game being played. Oh and the Pirates kicked the Sox ass too.
    Damn, we're in a tight spot!

    Who says you can't be bad at what you do and make a great living?

    According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, Stephen A. Smith is in line to become the companyís highest-paid personality, and could potentially earn as much as $10 million per year. That would give him the wealthiest contract in ESPN history. A lot of people will be surprised by this considering how often Smith makes easily-preventable gaffes on the air. Ultimately, though, the guy has a take on everything and never shies away from going on TV and saying it, and thatís what the network values.

    Didn't they just fire every reporter with what can be considered "knowledge" and "inside sources?" Make sense that they'd take that $$$$ and hand to some blowhard douche.
    It makes perfect sense...until you think about it.

    Jezuz fuck, could ESPN baseball coverage get any worse? I mean, Fox blows balls big time, of course, but, now I have to watch Yankees/Sox with, I'm sorry, some shrill woman saying stupid shit, but ARod actually said that some fielder has to "activate his hands". He actually fucking said that.

    Let's do some livin'

    Now saying this is Price's biggest career start in Yankee Stadium, barring the post-season. It is June. It's a year following a WS win. In June.

    If it is on a called 3rd strike, I will accept it.

    Well, there you go. ARod just said that that a 3-2 pitch that Price just pitched was the biggest pitch in this really important game. Sacrifice fly. Such fucking drama.

    At least they didn't call it a BACK DOOR CUTTER.

    Heard BDC called on a 2-0 pitch to Urshula and had to laugh.

    ESPNís pointless ďno politicsĒ stance adopted by president Jimmy Pitaro was never a good idea, and Dan Le Batard took the opportunity yesterday to thoroughly skewer it on-air while also criticizing President Trumpís attacks on minority Congresswomen.

    this is likely to go over well here and cement me further as a hater, so be it.

    espn's college gameday's tear jerker stories over student fans with serious health issues, two today with an hour to go; they did not used to do this; used to be a 3 hour tailgate just like when I used to tailgate at university of Houston games. we didn't bring everyone at the tailgate down with a story of someone we know of every time going thru a serious health issue, we got pumped up for the game.

    gameday is now a flip to for me, if it's not football; I move on.
    Eat em up Houston Cougars !

    OK, this guy is always trashing my Cowboys, but i gotta admit that I still enjoy watching him. I also think that most of the criticisms against Dallas are valid. He is certainly over the top, but he is very entertaining and adds some juice to some drab broadcasts.

    On air, I cannot stand SAS. And he has been a central figure in the era of loud debate sports coverage for me.
    However, I did listen to him on Bill Simmons podcast and I can appreciate what he is trying to do just a little more than before.
    But I can't listen for a minute to this loud debate style. I just don't think it is very authentic. jmo
