How nutty has ESPN gotten.  
be ESPN: Create entire new genre, cable channel focused solely on sports. 
be ESPN: Top undisputed leader in sports.
be ESPN: Have men divorce their wives cause dumb chick won't shut up during sportscenter.
be ESPN: Have national hair cut franchise build business model around 'we let you watch espn while you get your hair cut'
be ESPN: So popular takes over NFL games.
be ESPN: So popular spawns SEC network, Pac10 network, whole new approach to monetizing college football (sports). 
be ESPN: sell to ABC for $166M in 1984
be ESPN: be a major part of ABC's $19B sale to Disney in 1995
be ESPN: be ESPN in 2008-2015, realize that DVR is killing network programing ad revenue, but fully boosting value of live sporting events. 
be ESPN: Decide to let a ton of Social Justice Warriors take over.
be ESPN: have every announcer on every event be 'diversity' hire.
be ESPN: make sportscenter so much about social justice warrior bs like the intriguing 'how does football effect women',  Greenburg's excessive whining Smiths obsession with attacking white people. 
be ESPN: Sportscenter all but disappears from bars, from homes.  Not even played at the haircut franchise anymore.  No one can watch it. 
be ESPN: major financial losses.  Talk of cutting the network free, firing the president.
be ESPN: Instead fire all your over priced talent (not a bad idea on the face of it).
be ESPN: Instead of hiring new 'talent', get massive 'diversity' hires, which apparently you got super cheap because they are awful. 
be ESPN: have Beth Mullens announce football game.  Beth was great at softball as she knew the sport very well.
be ESPN: When Beth talked about Syracuse football on softball broadcast she would literally butcher the entire statement.  She is no fan of football.
be ESPN: have Beth do game, she was awful, by every possible account. 
be ESPN: have that Sergio Dipp give incoherent diversity rant as his 'sideline report'


No you pretend you are ESPN.  What do?

I'm banning ESPN after the Jemele Hill comments on the President.

Totally unacceptable.

If you wanna watch college football, you pretty much have to watch ESPN, because they own all the rights, almost.

Don't have to listen to it, especially Mowins, and I don't watch NFL, so I won't have to listen to her there.

I'm not happy with ESPN either but College GameDay is the best show on television in my humble opinion.

I watched 1 hour of those 2 games Monday night but happened to watch that Dipp dude. It was dreadful and I just thought it was a college journalism student related to an ESPN bigwig. Just like trannies in the military and women in combat, hiring that dude is an idea that only a dumbass like Bamaturd and Will I Lose would sign off on in the name of diversity.

Diversity is for losers

In the pre-Trump era, ESPN took similar matters more seriously. Back in 2008, Hill was suspended for writing on ESPN.com, “Rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim.” In less than a decade the network has pivoted from suspending Hill for comparing Celtics fans to Nazis to allowing the same reporter to call the President of the United States a white supremacist.

The difference is the involvement of the thin skinned president in a matter involving a citizen speaking their mind about him. That involvement is unprecedented in US history. 

ESPN applied their actions or inaction inconsistently. There is no doubt about that. But the correct answer is none of them should have been suspended or fired. So if it hurts ESPN, they get what they deserve. 

BUT ... Obama would never have spoken out and called for discipline or firing of an employee citizen because of what they said about him. Neither would any other president. But this one and his supporters can dish it out, but they can't take it. 

The difference is that trump himself and his press secretary have called for her to be fired because they don't like what she said.  poor baby

While I'm on this topic, someone please make sure trump doesn't see the clips from the Emmy's of Spicer (seen by millions) mocking the inauguration crowd size lie his boss demanded that he tell. 

Because you see ... Trump still thinks we all believe this massive, low self esteem lie. If he finds out Spicer made fun of it, he might lose it and start nuking stuff.

If it wasn't for college football espn would be done. The more they venture into politics (very obviously left leaning), the more they will lose.

Obama called on Don Imus to be fired over his "nappy-headed hoes" comment.

Which negates much, if not all, of your entire stupid post.

If you refer to black women as 'nappy headed hoes'.........
You might be a racist. Or you might be a washed up ex shock jock that thought he could say anything and get away with it. He couldn't.

Or you might be a racist if you're a liberal, white talk-show host who thinks he can say on his show "house ni**er" and not think anything about it.

She said Trump is a White Supremacist.  Offered no evidence.  Was censured by her bosses at ESPN.  She apologized.  ESPN says she has no right speaking for them.

But if it had been Sean Hannity who had said that, do you think the reaction would have been different?

No, liberals are the racists, both historically and politically.  They were the original slave owners.  They helped create the KKK.  They lagged behind conservatives in support of civil rights.  They continue to hold down blacks through their oppressive policies so that they can keep them on the government dole and voting D.

Now you are sounding like a racist. I don't see race. I would never have owned another human being. Liberals are the only thing that keeps this country from falling back into the dark ages. We would be back to civil war days, with biggest bad ass making the rules. You'd better be glad we bust our asses to keep the constitution sacrosanct. You probably have no idea how incredible the ACLU is.

You don't see race?  Then you're a liar.

As for your comment about liberals keeping us from falling back into the dark ages, you just proved my point that liberals only argue with emotion and hysteria.

As for the ACLU, I agree that they're incredible.  But remember that "incredible" is neither positive or negative and you and I will be on opposite sides of how to use that word.

Liberals have never met a Constitution they liked. It restricts them too much. It's a roadblock to their goals.

Your doing such a good job you are losing a record number of seats to the GOP.

Seems America isn't where you are - kinda makes you think doesn't it...

Nope. The public sentiments ebb and flow with the personalities at the helm. Over time, false prophets like Trump get exposed and the sheep come back to the fold. Only a matter of time, just hope we have time if Trump triggers a nuclear war with Rocket Man. Not a good idea to poke a demented bear(cub).
