    If you ever needed a sign that ESPiN was desperate and had no idea how to right their floundering ship, this is it. Can’t wait until he goes on an unhinged rant and embarrasses the mouse.

    OMG, how desperate is ESPN? LOL.
    Note to ESPN if your ratings are off the charts bad, bringing back one of the most derisive and divisive personalities EVER at ESPN is probably not a wise idea.

    If he sticks to sports, he is tolerable. But with what is going on in sports, I truly doubt he will just stick to that.

    If a tree falls in the forest and no one is ther to witness it, does it make a sound? So if he is spewing his drivel on FESPN and know one has it turned on, does anyone know? I have gotten to the point where I am down to watching the scores scroll across the bottom of the screen when I wake in the morning. I never watch that bullshit network.

    The most telling thing about how far ESPN has fallen is that if there wasn't a thread specifically pointing this out, I'd never even know it. Other than for Penn State Football, The NCAA Wrestling Championships, or the occasional Monday Night or Thursday Night Eagles Game I never turn that garbage on. ESPN made their bed trying to be something that they're not, and yet they continue to double down on their own stupidity.

    I always thought this. And that's true with many of their on air personalities. I tuned out as more and more social commentary creeped in, and the only reason I dial them in now is for a specific game I want to watch

    I posted this 2-3 days ago, but it appears the thread was deleted. Likely because the article I linked stated he was an uber lefty whack job, and that ESPiN was, yet again, waltzing down the political path with it's personalities.

    I didn't think Olberman was still alive. I must be getting him confused with Dan Patrick.

    Guess ESPiNs horrible ratings while shoving politics down everyones throats instead of sports isn't getting through to the top brass. So they hire Jemele Hill's crackhead twin brother, again. I hope they get what they deserve.

    I do enjoy some of their live sport coverage, especially the wrestling championships, but the rest of it is unwatchable.

    ^^^^ THIS ^^^^

    I believe I am going to take the HBO/Game Of Thrones strategy when it comes to ESPiN. Every year I cancel HBO the very next day after the GoT season finale, and I order HBO the Sunday GoT starts a new season............ I am going to cancel ESPiN until the start of college football, and then cancel it the day after the college football season is over.

    That’s what I do with Dish Flex Pack. Right now I have none of the ESPiN’s, no BTN, no Fox Sports...and guess what...I wouldn’t be watching those channels now anyway, so why pay for them?

    I've done the HBO/GoT cancellation the last few years with my DirecTV service. What was sweet this year was when I called DirecTV to cancel my HBO, the reason I told the customer service rep was because HBO was producing the Joe Paterno movie .... I can not wait to call DirecTV, to cancel my ESPiN package (I believe it's packaged in my all sports package) and tell the customer service agent who tries to talk me into keeping it some good reasons why I am cancelling their garbage.

    I don't watch much Sportscenter but IMO better Olbermann than Jemele Hill.

    Didn't this one look us all right in the eye through the camera and tell us we're horrible people for graduating from PSU?

    Man I'm gonna have to DVR Sportscenter now. Maybe they'll have some new personal insults for me.

    The Keith Olberman described in that article sounds a lot like Trump, except Trump is a straight up racist, and the article claims KO is not.

    I could not care less about KO or RB. Lets be clear, though--uncivil language and horrible insults are not a problem for Fox News when POTUS says them OR tweets them.

    More lame whataboutism. Yawn.

    No. Drawing an equivalence between a vicious racist trope like calling an African American women a Muslim Ape, and KO telling DT to F himself simply does not wash.

    There are lots of very good reasons not to have KO on the air, and regardless i don't watch ESPN or Roseanne. But in KOs case, according to Fox, he is not a racist. So the comparison is false.
