1 Don't get me started on Chris Berman. If he died tomorrow, I would not miss him on TV. And for Dookie V... I mean Dick Vitale... I just hope that in reality, he hates Duke, and just pumps them up like they do so everybody else can hate them. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 14, 2011, 1:30 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 At this point I fail to see how any rational human being can take anything ESPN says seriously in any way whatsoever. -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on December 13, 2011, 7:39 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 PYLrulz, I realize your comment was made a year ago but I have to agree with you, ESPN is extremely biased. I'm certainly from a city that gets no love for it's professional sports teams. Even though, They've all done pretty well in the past and have had some marquee players along the way. It's never what they did right but always what the other team did wrong (if they win). Chris Berman is highly obnoxious as well -- Submitted By: (Jp) on December 12, 2011, 5:35 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 The NFL draft coverage was for me the sign of ESPN's slow and steady demise. Chris Berman should of retired 5-10 years ago, Mel Kiper Jr. annoys the crap out of me with his formulas and systems for judging draft picks, Jon Gruden might be the most annoying sports announcer I've ever heard in history and his grilling of quarterbacks is pompous and ridiculous, Suzy Kolber making Mark Ingram cry by bringing up his dad was totally inappropriate, and everything else seemed gossipy and over the top. I switched over to the NFL Network and it was much, much better. ESPN has forgotten sports over the last few years and goes for sensational garbarge, probably in no small part due to Disney's ownership in the network. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 6, 2011, 4:27 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 You know, I think ESPN has always been for the casual fan. At one point it was entertaining enough to appeal to everyone when Sportscenter was in its golden years, but really they've always been about watered down coverage for casual fans. A serious sports fan wants to see all or most of their team games, hear quality coverage and analysis from a full-time reporter... a serious fan is never going to be satisfied with Joe Morgan reading the notes someone else prepared for him and Chris Berman screaming cliches in lieu of providing any kind of meaningful analysis. But hey if you just want a bit of entertainment with sports in it, ESPN is there for you. That's their game plan. They have been doing this for decades. -- Submitted By: (doctor_awesome) on August 17, 2010, 9:41 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Several things. 1. Everybody on ESPN is trying to be like their 90's counterparts, and fail epically at it. 2. Bias. If you are not the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Lakers, or Dallas Cowboys, you don't mean sh*t in their eyes. 3. Poor coverage. Look at their rotation for Monday Night Football. Yikes at times. NASCAR races. In the 90's, they were regarded as the best in covering NASCAR races. Now, they just plain suck. 4. More Bias. Its not as bad as it used to be, but I remember a time when if ESPN didn't cover it, they could care less about it. I remember when NASCAR took its races to FOX and NBC. ESPN treated NASCAR as if it was nothing more than a backwoods hick sport. The NHL was laughed upon the first few years after the lockout. In all, I say its time someone gives some competition to ESPN, or at least they pull their heads out of their rears. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on May 20, 2010, 6:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Simply put: ESPN boned the fish because just about all of the personalities have been getting in scandals! There have been two this year that were worth noting; I don't even want to get started on those! I had a feeling ESPN was headed to the pits of...the other place when in 2002 we had that HBO-like Bobby Knight movie on. That was when ESPN, THE SPORTS NETWORK, started to show off its "adult" side. Heck, even the commercials aren't family-friendly! R-rated movies, ED pills, even stuff you can find at Walmart...all with an edge!!!!! (How are families supposed to have a pleasant Chili's dinner now?) ESPN, you have served us well for the past 30 years. I appreciate your bring back classic clips and all that, but because of your recent mishaps, I am throwing in the towel. I will, however, still catch the college football games, though. The moral story: no Disney network (ABC, Disney Channel, Disney XD, ABC Family, ESPN, etc.) is safe when it comes to family-friendliness!!!!! R.I.P.
