Have you ever thought of doing a series on former student/athletes - and I mean STUDENT/Athletes - who are applying what they learned in the classroom to help in the fight against the coronavirus? I'm talking about student/athletes who became doctors, nurses, first responders, Put them on a pedestal for change. They're out their and they deserve the recognition.
Why not put on the greatest Olympic moments of all time for everyone to enjoy during this day at time home where we sport lovers are starving for something to watch...just a suggestion...thank you
With the world dealing with the coronavirus right now and everyone in the world pretty much sheltered in place we all are missing out on sports one way or another.
Here in my home town of Kennewick Wa a little boy 6 years old is putting on his own March Madness tournament in his backyard. It is so cool how his imagination is and how he came up with which teams are in and how the games play out. All on a dry erase board. He will not let the coronavirus stop him from his own March Madness. This is news you guys could be covering and bring a smile to everyone's face.
Can I please have the suits at ESPN answer this question for me. How do you feel about Jason Whitlock? Do you think Steven A. Smith caters to your opinions or shares or leans more towards your views cause he is an employee? Please respond. These things have bothered me. Would love to have a conversation
(hidden) to all Zac presscott fans look at these stats from last year. Against defenses ranked 32/25 (giants,redskins,lions,dolphins) 6-0 record 19tds-3ints defenses ranked 24-12 (packers,vikings,rams) 1-2 record 7tds-4ints.defenses ranked 11-1 (saints,jets,patriots,bills,eagles) 1-6 record 4tds-4ints I think he is OK QB but obvious fed on bottom of league and struggled with top tier teams in league does he deserves top tier pay??? Could not make playoffs coming out of worst conference in league.
Get rid of Bill Walton-------------------------------he is the worst announcer you have-------its all about him showing himself off-----------------id like listen to the game-not a self centered motor mouth
Silence Dakich, He is by far the most obnoxious personality announcing sports. No one wants to know all the people he knows and definitely do not want to see him diagramming plays on the court. If he is that good, why is he not a head coach someplace. When he is announcing, as a group we elect to turn off audio and listen to the radio.
PLEASE dump Dick Vitale. He is sooooooi VERY obnoxious & doesn't know how to shut his mouth!!!!!!!
Please cancel Bill Walton's contract.
He ruins games with his verbal diarrhea! His nonsensical comments and self agrandisement is so distracting that we even try to watch your broadcasts with the sound off. I'm sure he's a nice guy, and was a great player, but please don't put us through that next season!
Thank you for your consideration.
Please get Bill Idiot Walton off Pac-12 games. No explanation needed, just watch the games. Soooooo annoying. Please take him off. Please please please!!!!!!!!
Jimmy Dykes, etc., talking about motorcycles, suits, shoes, etc. during basketball games.
Miss some of the calls, who fouled because we get to see the shoes instead. They might discuss what they had for breakfast, dinner, how late they stayed up, football, lots of stuff fans could care less about during a basketball game. Could they please talk about the game they are watching.
Why does Dan Le Batard have to feel the need to minimize, make fun of or put down white people on every show? It's old and tiresome. If he uttered ANYTHING about black people like he does about white people on a regular basis, he would've fired a long time ago. White people are pretty much the reason why he and his family have had success in the country. I know this will fall on deaf ears as it's totally ok to make fun and put down white people in every form of media these days. I'm tired of it however and will cancel everything or boycott everything ESPN is part of. And I will also inform many of ESPN advertisers that I will be boycotting their products. Thanks for being racist.
I have been a loyal avid espn sports fan since the 1970's. Since the internet era began, I wake up and get my sports fan fix with my cup of coffee iPad and go to ESPN. I have been putting up with ridiculous advertising, accepting as a part of new media era. This past week you crossed a personal line by constantly, on every page I go to, posting
"Trump is on a roll" in huge print. An ad for refinancing.....
While I realize ads pay the bills I cannot not support you anymore ...the man is despicable, offensive, divisive and I'm saddened that you have allowed him to gain access to, your base. So goodby, searching for my new sports fix site.
Good job, ESPN! Trump 2020!
Yep, the economy is on a roll for sure. Sorry snowflake.
Dick Vitale has served College Hoops well over the decades, but being on the mic during big games late and rambling on and joking instead of precise non bias reflections of real time basketball is not what fans on the edge of their seats want to hear. It's time to move on, his voice is lost a lot of times in the loud arenas, and it reminds me of Willie Mays going out in bad style. Vitale still has his fans but the game is bigger than him and needs announcers who at least question calls by the ref, or make reference to ones missed. He is a walking info commercial for Kentucky basketball and Calipari. If you watch top rank games as UK/UF and in the last 5 mins too much talking dwelling on minute subjects. He charities are spot on, and he still give commentaries of his input. Announcers should be more about the actual game with sprinkles of humor and and personal stories instead of vice versa. Simple but often said, "JUST DO YOUR JOB!" He is 80 and still has some juice, but like Howard Cosell found out when he stayed too long, you are not bigger than the game. He lives in Florida, just chill now, we will always respect your career.
This one is for Mike Greenberg. I understand that the Astro's sign stealing fiasco is the story of the week. But, I think it's time to get off the pretend moral high ground on this one. I find any discussion of the Astro's issue incomplete without a similarly "outraged" discussion of the New England Patriots. SpyGate was no less a theft of opposing teams information. Have we ever seen or heard the FULL story on that? (tapes made public, # of occurrences made public). Why not vacate NE Super Bowl wins for any season that they stole information from other teams? And, then there was Deflate Gate where, somehow, "contest equipment" was manipulated (and then a cellphone destroyed as a possible coverup). So, why not vacate wins, suspend and fine both coach and quarterback (for life....?....). And, then we have the tangential but likely connected issue of the Rub and Tug tape related to the owner being caught up in a sting operation. Why is that tape not made public? Why is the owner still involved in the NFL? If the same thing had occurred to a young black athlete, his tape would be internet viral, ESPN viral, probably 60 Minutes viral. He also would be dragged into the commissioner's office and publicly flogged for being a bad boy.
So, Greeny, it's time to man-up on Get Up. Time for due diligence. Discuss the Astros all you need. But, reserve an equal share of vitriol and vengeance for the Pats. (or, whom RC had the guts to describe on your show a while back - the cheaters)
Today is the biggest race of the year. The Super bowl for NASCAR and you have fricking soccer on your home page. You guys need to get your head out of your ass and start covering what's important instead of the political agenda your trying to ram down our throats.
Why would you not televise on normal channels men's basketball number one versus number 14? Unbelievable.
It's a damn shame! On Wed. 2-15-20 #3 Kansas and #14 WVU was playing and on Sat. 2-19-20 #1 Baylor was playing WVU and you had neither game on a cable channel. If you can't put top 14 games on cable, you can just go to Hell. Not everyone can or wants to get ESPN plus. Stick it where the sun doesn't shine!
I was just watching SportsCenter and one of your commentators took a drink of maple syrup testing its taste and remarking on how it energized a professional tennis player. The expression on his face was one of unpleasantness.
As a sugar maker managing a rather large maple syrup operation I suggest in the future you have someone on a higher plane than a moron try something new
You guys are a disgusting mess! When are you going to keep your promise of start times for programs? UFC Prelims , once again missed by millions of paying customers because of a pointless College game. Your company seems like is now ran by morons with person Vendettas forwards MMA. Shame on all of you!
Why can't Jay Bilas stop complaining about fouls on his play-by-play. It makes watching the games he announces unbearable. I have watched 3-4 games and he is always the same. Maybe he should try officiating a game sometime or apply to be a referee.
Why does ESPN have a so called announcer (Bill Walton) of a basketball game that does not talk about the game?
