violentsalvation: Good for him, that's where he shined, sanely.
Frederick: The only other person to get away with bucking ESPN is Tony Kornheiser -my favorite sports writer.
Triumph: Frederick: The only other person to get away with bucking ESPN is Tony Kornheiser -my favorite sports writer.Is Andy Rooney your favorite opinion writer too?
Triumph: Certainly not viewers.
Frederick: Triumph: Frederick: The only other person to get away with bucking ESPN is Tony Kornheiser -my favorite sports writer.Is Andy Rooney your favorite opinion writer too?I dont get the connection. But, no, I am not an Andy Rooney fan; although I am only really familiar with his work on 60 minutes after he was way past his prime.
CheatCommando: He's a clown version of his earlier self (who wasn't exactly all that serious to begin with). I still watch, but more because I am a DC native and he may be a cranky old git past his prime, but he's our cranky old git dammit!
jakomo002: Sidney Poitier?
Frederick: I've always liked him. Even when I disagree with him, I find him insightful and provocative. I especially admire his willingness to speak his mind even when it's unpopular to do so.The only other person to get away with bucking ESPN is Tony Kornheiser -my favorite sports writer.
UNC_Samurai: Tom Mees?
browneye: The man is a human boomerang.
TonnageVT: "ESPN executives said Olbermann will help it face the challenge presented by the launch of Fox Sports 1, a rival all-sports network that just announced plans for a potentially similar series to star Regis Philbin, 82."What in the holy fark?"Caremlo with the three, IT'S A GOOD ONE!"
Dahnkster: I have a nephew that works for Cox cable mid-level management who told me that around $5-6 dollars of your cable bill goes to ESPN costs each month. There was an article in Variety in just the past couple days that claimed if satellite providers and cable companies were forced to offer 'ala carte' programming, that only about 20 national television broadcasting would have the viewership, infrastructure and customer base they need to survive.The Variety article cited that Wall Street executives estimated that a customer would have to pay almost $30 per month to get stand-alone ESPN, partly because of their exclusive contracts with NCAA football and other exclusive sports broadcasting contracts.ESPN is one of Disney's largest moneymakers, exceeding theme park and movie revenues during most quarters.Oh, and welcome back Keith.
Incorrigible Astronaut: This is a lot better than the nonstop "debate" crap that they have right now, and it's only one hour on ESPN2. Outside of SportsCenter, PTI, and the occasional episode of 30 for 30, the channels are damn near unwatchable.
fatalvenom: UNC_Samurai: Tom Mees?That idea won't float.
HST's Dead Carcass: I kept mentally saying: Please not Olbermann! Please not Olbermann! Please not Olbermann! and it was Olbermann. Ugh!
