    If I did that, you wouldn't need me to let you know anything. You'd see it on the evening news: "Let's go live to Reptile Gardens where a woman has pushed her husband into the Komodo Dragon pit and is screaming, 'Baribeau that!' at him."
    Winners see success and want to climb up to its level. Losers see success and want to drag it down to their own.

        Now, even if you don't want to play the political game, you're a sell out or a traitor. YOU MUST SPEAK LEFT or you're a deplorable.

            I rarely watch ESPN anymore. I did watch the F1 race on sunday morning as I'm an avid race fan and pull for Haas in the F1 series.
            I can now watch Indy Car and NASCAR on NBC Sports and most football, basketball and hockey on non ESPN networks. They just overplayed their hand and got too big and arrogant. Glad to see them struggling.

              ESPN needs to get back to what go them there.... sports... It would be nice if they got politics out of most shows, and then had a few shows for political viewers that were honestly labeled as such...

              They got rid of Jemele Hill at least. I didn't mind here all that much until she went full tilt and got too big for her britches. When politics gets bigger than the actual topic (sports), it just won't end well. The only thing I really watch is Golic and Wingo aside from actual games. Politics has infected way too much. There's not a lot of escape to be found in sports and entertainment anymore.

                How lame is that? They're trying to make something out of nothing. Get off the #metoo bandwagon boys.

                Can't remember where I heard it, but I heard they are trying to get back to their roots or at least a lot closer. Except for FB or BB I haven't watched ESPN in over 10 years.

                  Does anyone know if Wingo & Golic ratings are comparable to Mike & Mike?
                  I think Beadle is getting reassigned after her admission that she doesn't/won't watch football anymore. The interesting part of that, to me, is that she is making HUGE money with ESPN. Now they're going to have to find something for her to do that matches the compensation... unless of course her contract was fully tied to "Get Up," in which case ESPN did a good job of covering their own asses.

                  'Wingo & Golic' get lower ratings than 'Mike & Mike' did, or at least they were a couple of months ago. I'll have to see if I can dig up the article that reported on it. It wasn't an unforgivable drop, but it's enough to make you wonder if they screwed up by not trying to salvage the Mikes' relationship.

                    They're moving NBA countdown to LA because LeBron. Literally, no italics. It was in the press release.

                      They are paying Greenburg a shit ton to tho right? and Get Up is not doing well, makes you wonder what they are going to do with him as well.

                      • When I read what Beadle said I at least respected her honestly. The way many of these talking heads (not just ESPN) regurgitate the same talking points over and over and never seem to talk games you can tell many of them don't watch either but fake the funk.
                        This sig will not change until The Browns win the Super Bowl... So get real used to it.

                          IMO ESPN didn't want to risk losing Greenburg and caved to his request to do something different hoping his fan base would translate to the new program and Mike & Mike (Trey) would remain consistent given its track record.

I spilled chocolate syrup all over my shirt, guess I need to take it off now... what do you think of that Marshawn Lynch??" "Beast-mode."

                                Golic made that show (at least for me). Greenburg was a nice dynamic that played a great nerd to Golic's caveman. Golic's personality still translates well with sports dudes. Greenburg on his own, or without a Golic, not so much. Overall, they are better together than apart. I like Wingo I guess, but they could have found someone better IMO. Little Golic sometimes gets on my nerves and has a tendency to talk to much.

                                      • Just watched the ESPN E60 about Declan.. I'm surprisingly happy about it. That family is the definition of class. Though ESPN was going to take a few other angles.

                                        The second half of E60 was fricken great. I recommend everyone watch it. I won't spoil the story, but it's about Deland McCullough, a CFB RB turned coach, and his search for his biological parents. Huge "No Way" moment

They'll talk on and on day after day about some sideshow bullshit that involves athletes off the field or before/after games... but God forbid they actually just focus on who played, who won, and how. Nobody talks games anymore... if they do it's usually in the context of how terrible the games are or how boring they are, "Dude you are a sports talk show host, how about try and actually sell the sport for once??"
                                            That's what I like about DP; it's a bunch of friends talking shit and commenting about sports. Who wants to sit there and listen to some nerds talk about stats and all this other bullshit that's ruining the game?

                                              It seems like this story should have been released during Father's Day, though. Maybe they waited for that reunion to happen, so the story-arc could be complete.

                                                        I did not see IT coming. I new something was going to be crazy, but not what actually happened. Agree, it would have made a great 60 minute long segment on F's day. Surprised all the build up for that segment was actually about the first ND portion (which was good).

                                                              Very strange. Meanwhile, Finebaum already has us at #4, ahead of Clemson. If we win out, I don't see us any lower than #3, behind undefeated Alabama or Georgia and undefeated Ohio State.

                                                                              Still not high on UGA's O.

                                                                              Our depth at D puts us in the best position we've been in for years if we can stay healthy. If our O keeps improving, we could be a threat by the end of the year.

                                                                                            ND is probably proven as the most 'complete' team to this point between both sides of the ball. Ohio State's offense is more potent than ND's in terms of big plays, but their defense is further behind our defense than our offense is behind their offense, if that makes sense. So they might produce more big plays, but ND might have a greater chance at finding some success on both sides of the ball.

                                                                                            I think Clemson is a relative farce in a weak ACC. They're riding the DL and the running game right now until Lawrence figures it out, but they'd still be dropping two games if VT was healthy and if Richt hadn't already gone full Richt at Miami.

                                                                                            Georgia is an unknown at this point, for the most part. If they come out and smash LSU and Florida, I'd put them ahead of ND no problem... but they haven't beat anyone of note yet, so until that time, I could role with arguing that ND is the biggest PROVEN threat to Bama.

                                                                                            However, at the end of the day, if you're making it to the playoff, you're hoping to be in the #2 vs #3 game to try and get a win before meeting the Bama Buzzsaw.

                                                                                            I really think the argument is "Who is the biggest threat to cover the spread against Bama?"

Because to win a championship this year it's likely going to take playing them. So if we're deciding we don't want Bama, we're wanting a loss before we would play them. I'll pass on that scenario. Give me Bama.
