I'm with ya, ESPN is the MSNBC of sports journalism. I rarely watch TV period and espn is just a lot of fluff these days, no substance.

I hate that stupid show where they try to tackle "social issues," blah blah blah blah blah blah.... with that chipmunk looking guy.

Im really actually tired of all shows where guys sit around and TALK about
sports.

just show me the damn game. and dont try to be funny... i dont need all the lame silliness. They spend more time trying to be funny and edgy and cool, than they spend telling you the story of the game. When they finish, I still dont know anything about the game.

Anybody remember when Howard Cosell did his halftime thing on Monday Night Football, where he'd run thru highlights of Sunday's games? That was the best thing ever! Was Howard Cosell "cool?" Not at all. Was he funny? No, and he didnt need to be. In fact, Cosell was an A-hole, and probably some kind of communist. But that dude could TELL A STORY.
Thats what I want. Football sells itself.

Just show me the game. The game sells itself. The game is what its all about. Tell me the story of the Game.

Bucs' fans equally hate ESPN as much y'all do.

BTW, the Joe Horn thing was hilarious. That's coming from a rival fan, and plenty of other Buc/Falcon fans share my sentiment.

ESPN is junk and has been for years.

One person comes to mind when I think of ESPN as a joke: Woody Paige.

Man I remember that. It was halftime that I stayed up for when I was a kid...and during those highlights, I'd position my bean bag and grab my nurff, toss it in the air, catch it and land on the bean bag. That was awesome!

My brother was too. I was Earl Campbell. I was the youngest so that didn't work out too well for me.
