I was thinking about this earlier. I remember being a kid in the 90's and watching Sportscenter every morning before school. It was just one game's highlights after another and it was a thing of beauty.

Sadly, ESPN's solution to their problem is firing all of the reporters and X's and O's guys and going all in with what has led to their downfall.

Re: John Clayton out at ESPN

Only watch ESPN when they have a Saints game. 68% of NFL players are Black and 74.4% in the NBA. It is unfair that we have quota's for anything in life! You earn what you get and you don't get a damn participation trophy. ESPN forgot where they came from and that my friend is why they've lost it. They've overpaid to televise everything and aren't getting the revenues from Advertisers that some dumbass projected to get his yearly bonus. You make ****, you breathe ****, you are ****!

Re: John Clayton out at ESPN

The really sad part is the rocket scientists who made these decisions get promoted...

...till their top of the pack and then are retired on a multi-million dollar package...

Where's the accountability for thinking sports is rocket science and making these gaffes?!?

Ironic, we've got this spirited discussion all over John Clayton, Saints Hater...

This commercial was one of their better ones though...

Re: John Clayton out at ESPN

I don't watch ESPN for all the reasons already mentioned.

I never liked Clayton - I had a specific reason for it at one time but I've forgotten.

Meh.

Yeah, the scope is narrowed to SaintsNationNews, but still, it's a helluva lot better and we have enough gophers who will go out and dig up what's up with the Saints...

Regardless of your politics, most would agree that news or sports news reporting today comes with agendas...
Agreed!

Re: John Clayton out at ESPN

So ESPN/Disney axed an old white straight rich guy?

Is anyone really shocked?

Espn sucks and I couldn't stand their politics for a long time. They're going down.

Re: John Clayton out at ESPN

I only watch ESPN for live sports. I tried to give FS1 (219 on DirectTV) a chance but their highlight show was just as bad or worse than SportsCenter. I haven't even watched that channel in months, it's on my boycott list too since they hired Skip Bayless
