Watch that guy named Griner, he's good.
Are you sure you don't want to say it a fourth time, someone might finally chuckle

Yeah I don't want to see ESPN die but they definetly need to theory tank a new strategy. People watch ESPN because they hold all the TV rights. Nobody watches ESPN for Jaworski, Steven A, Magic, Skip Bayless, Chris Berman, and Merril Hodge. All of those personalities and many other makes me want to flip the channel. They have a strategy to appeal to young men because young men are the most easily influenced by advertising dollars. That's great, but they have completely lost touch with mature adults.
ACTUALLY, if I do watch, it is for Berman. Which that happens only in the Fall. Last I checked, ESPN was pulling a CNN and reporting on tabloids rather than actual sports. What also doesn't help is that they cater only to the big markets. Ever see any Hurricanes coverage? If it's NHL, it's Rangers or Bruins. You also wouldn't know that half of the NBA existed since they point coverage towards big markets. I doubt Fox Sports 1 will be any better.

ESPN is the hype train. They try to jump on someone's nuts and every once in a while hit a home run with it. Mostly it fads out but whatever generates ratings and advertising money. If it wasn't for Nascar and college football, it'd be over for me.

actually, any television related thing that abuses the endorsement of twitter sucks anyways.

The hate for ESPN is strong on this board. Probably stems from a lack of "respect", the fug whatever that means.

I liked them better when they were showing Australian Rules Football, the Highland Games, and Worlds Strongest Man competitions during the daytime hours.
Don't forget mud-bogging. Usually showed that on Thursday afternoons in the late 80's.
