I haven't seen anybody else say it so it might be wrong, but Mike and Mike said Lee and his producer were the ones that brought up him changing to avoid jokes and memes and whatever. Could be wrong..

Sounds like an EEOC case to me.

But I see EEOC magically having no interest and the broadcaster changing his on-air name to Bob Lee.

there has to be more to this story. Skipper just signed an extension within the past couple of months. Was this Quid pro Quo to get the Fox deal over the finish line. One of Murdoch kids taking over ESPN?

My initial thought was Disney just bought all of Fox's regional sports properties and me wondering if the two were somehow connected.

I don't buy that Skipper woke up one day, called Bob Iger, and said "I'm resigning". That's not how things work at that level of business.

Sounds like it was by his own doing. I didn't get to listen in today to his show, one of the few i actually listen to on ESPN now.

Did he say they were making him leave the radio? They just did a lineup shakeup and he got screwed...I figured this was his own move to do this.

I get the feeling he was like nahhhh im good, barstool called.

He claimed it was super amicable and both sides just realized it was time to move on.

Interesting list, 20 years is a long time. I guess Tiger at top is not to far of a stretch, but Tom Brady at 20 is way too low. Serena was also way to low. IMO Serena should be in top 5 she has been that dominate in Tennis. Of course this is the dead time in sports so lists will be all the rage.

Yeah, but her dominance rating is only a 9.5, so science doesn't really back this up.

ESPN is the fucking worst.

nope...if they were to offer their entire espn platform as a standalone streaming service, i would pay for that (like $x/month for access to ESPN/U/2/etc). but doesn't espn+ have exclusive access to MAC games and MLS and boxing and stuff? that doesn't really appeal to me. i mean, if you're into tennis, boxing, MLS, then i think it does offer a lotta options there. but i'm not big into those sports.

I did a month trial right when it became a thing, and never watched 1 single thing that was on +, so I canceled it. Since then, they've moved nearly anything that used to be on 3 over to +, so I have wavered back and forth on whether to sign back up. I haven't done it yet, because they pissed me off moving all the shit that used to stream regularly for free on 3 over to their paid + shit.

I'd probably do this too. As is, I probably won't sign up and will just continued to be peeved they moved formerly free shit over to paid.

Gonna give kudos to ESPN for their announcing crew at Wimbledon. Several times during the incredible Gentleman’s final were there multiple points or whole games when there was no commentary between points and you were able to just soak in the atmosphere.
