Rece Davis has a chance of carrying a big game. Fowler has a proven track record of being a horrible announcer for big-time football. #BringBackMussberger

They just look like the same dude to me. I really pay no attention to what Fowler says on Game Day anyway. I usually just wait to hear Corso say some inane shit and try to read the signage in the background.

I liked Fowler. He was a good facilitator on Game Day.

I am sooooooo annoyed with highlight videos that cycle through the same 3 or so soundtracks. I liked it better when highlights gave the in-game play by play.

see I don't get why sportscenter is like a football talk show/nfl live right now, I mean I get nba regular season can be boring but after a key playoff matchup, they spend like 20 minutes talking about concussions this morning to start off the show, what happened to the sports highlights show

So they laid off ~350 employees last year. They are being sued by Jason Pierre Paul. Sportscenter consists of 15 minutes of highlights these days and 45 minutes of political shit talk.
They are rasist shit Clints.

Yeah I am sick of all the political shit on ESPN. Some of it is warranted like with the Kaep stuff, but they should keep their coverage high level and less opinionated on that. I still have insider as I love the Keith Law, Olney, Kurk coverage on MLB. Otherwise I mostly ignore their stories.

Disney effect in my opinion.

ESPN is in some trouble. Outside of live broadcast their programming is awful and doesn't draw eyeballs. I don't think they'll be able to keep charging the same kind of subscriber rates to cable providers. They need to figure out ways to monetize content or they're looking at a downward spiral.

this is what happens when your model of getting $$$ for 35+ years becomes outdated and unsustainable

them buying those rights is the only thing that is keeping them afloat

live rights are EVERYTHING in 2017

if you read certain sites (packpride) ESPN is failing because they've become too liberal and folks are canceling their ESPN subscriptions (which you can't really do since it's all bundled packages) as backlash for ESPN turning so far left.

^I think it is some of both.

The layoffs got one of our own. Dr. Jerry Punch was let go. Oh well, he's better for Fox, or NBC anyway because I think the Indy 500 is about the only motor sports event left on ESPN/ABC. IMSA, Indy Car, NASCAR, NHRA, WEC, F1, AMA, and pretty much any other motor sports league you can think of is either on Fox, or NBC now.

^^i think it's far less of disgruntled fans dropping ESPN due to politics than people seem to think. in order to drop ESPN you have to likely move down an entire "level" in your cable subscription and lose a lot of other channels in the process. especially since most low level basic cable packages include ESPN and ESPN2. ESPN losing subscribers is almost entirely cord cutters and changes in the way people view television, it would seem to me. and i'd say most people cut the cord to save money, not make a political stance.

Andy Katz gone.

The thing with politics is admittedly annoying to a lot of people but it's not the cause of this. If anything it's just helped play a role in killing the ratings of Sportscenter over the years.
