Agreed. Don't really care for the hosts of NFL AM but total access is pretty good. The majority of their programming is way better than NFL related stuff that ESPN offers.
NFL AM makes me want to jab the remote control through my eye socket it's so terrible. They're trying to make it the Today Show of the NFL and unfortunately, that's a terrible idea full stop.
The real problem with ESPN and some of these sports networks is that they've stopped trying to inform the audience and are instead trying to dazzle them. They talk about vague things like "he wanted it more" and "this guy just wins games" rather than "they executed a perfect defense to take their best player effectively out of the game" or "this guy has a tremendous supporting cast and here's why the wins may not tell the whole story". I understand it's easier to make flashy content, and hell it drove ratings up for a while, but people got bored of it and a lot of people are dropping cable because cable television has literally gone to complete poo over the past 3 years.
The worst thing about cable TV at the moment is that the History Channel is now a reality TV network, everything on TruTV is a lie, MTV hasn't shown a music video in prime time since I graduated college, SciFi is now SyFy, Travel Channel is now "slightly weird food network", and ESPN has stopped actually covering sports and has now switched to some sort of athlete melodrama that occasionally airs sporting events as well. I could go on but now I'm too worked up to sleep and I have a meeting in the morning. God dammit.
