ESPN layoffs

89 posts in this topic

Besides Live Sporting Events I very rarely watch ESPN anymore.  When they started promoting the lefty agenda and awards Bruce Jenner awards for courage, they lost me as a fan.  Sports are supposedly to be a break from the real world/life/politics etc but ESPN chose to go a different route and lost millions of viewers because of it.  ESPN ranks right up there with MTV for me of channels that used to be great and now are unwatchable.  

 

Cord cutting is also an issue.  A lot of younger people will never have traditional cable in which ESPN gets $7+ of your bill each month.   TV as we know it is changing.  Pro leagues and colleges better get ready for the drop in revenue when these current contracts end.  Ala Carter programming is coming.   How much would you pay to watch your favorite team play each game or season?

With a jailbroken amazon fire stick, who needs to pay for cable anymore. All I need is to keep it updated and pay for wifi.

ESPN is nothing more than MSNBC with footballs.  This is what happens when liberalism takes over.

Y'all are right on here. When ESPN flaunted the Caitlyn Jenner mess, I realized that I am not their target audience. I'm not a big protest guy, but I  do vote with my pocketbook, so it pleases me when I see that like-minded individuals feel the same way. Good posts.

I'll speak from my own perspective.  I got tired of repeated leftist comments.  Then repeatedly firing their people if they made conservative comments.  And when ESPN failed to crucify Kaepernick for kneeling during the Anthem, it was a deal breaker for me.  The only dumber stunt was the NFL Commissioner not stopping it.  

And then you have this poem.  That's how far the left thinks they can go.  Accident?  I don't think so.  The idiots running ESPN are killing the network.

In America we didn't crucify folks for hanging folks from trees when their only crime was wanting to be free. So take the Kapernick crap and stick it where the sun don't shine.

You can stick your slavery comments in the same orifice.

Where in America does this happen? Maybe you can stick your crap there, since that place only exists in your head.

It doesn't happen, but they continue that tired rhetoric.  Same rhetoric that a flag caused a shooting in South Carolina.

I felt the same way about fox news with all the Roger ailes and bill oreilly fiasco.

You need to get you some counseling nappy.  You're filled with so much bigoted hate, based on things that happened 100 to 150 years ago, it's consuming you.  I'm not a Psychologist, but I'd suspect you're also a democrat, who hates himself for it, and the Dem Party also.  The fact that slavery and racial hate crimes committed by whites in the past is virtually your only comeback, shows that you have no fact filled knowledge that even you accept as truth.  The result of your conundrum is that you lash out with frustration when someone post something you perceive as true, but you don't like that kind of truth.

When I posted my opinion (and remember, that's what this Forum is for) about ESPN, and Kaepernick, you respond with the usual.  And here's a little more truth for you, Kaepernick sucks.  He's like to many liberals today, he greedily accepts all the this great country has to offer, and when his skills left him, he lashed out at the very country that gave him all these opportunities.  Why you fill the need to defend the lowlife scumbag, is beyond me.

What's funny and sad at the same time, Kaepernick stopped kneeling for the National Anthem last season. He hoodwinked his followers, the media, and the entire country. He drew national attention to "his cause" which he didn't have strong enough convictions to continue. Those are the types of heroes for the left? What a movement. Good job.

Yep, ESPN lost me with the Jenner pride. Kaepernick's actions have been disgraceful but I'm little on the fence considering he has those rights as an American. The bigger problem is the way the media including ESPN hyped it up.

FoxSports has something to do with ESPNs decline

I don't watch sports programming as much as I used to.  I can't remember the last time I sat down and paid attention to sports center on ESPN.  I watch snippets of Texans highlights, or Rockets, or Astros, from time to time.  Otherwise I catch a 30 for 30 when I can.  I didn't even know ESPN was considered liberal until someone mentioned it.

This poor Asian broadcaster may have to change his name to keep his job.

Reading the comments, this one guy adamantly refuses to believe it.  I'm guessing he thinks it's absurd.  After the Black Student group questioned the USC Trojan horse as racist, I think it's absurd to think anything the Left may do is absurd.

Kaepernick was in the Super Bowl recently, dallas hasn't been in 22 years and houston oilers or texans never have

And imo, that's proof positive that it's not about the statutes.  It's about stirring poo to blame Trump for creating division.  Again, my opinion, if I had to put a name on who's dividing the USA, it would be Soros.

Please tell me your not trying to compare kaepernik to Dak Prescott! Prescott was a better rookie QB than kaepernick will ever be!
