ESPN's 32% ratings crash - layoffs happening

I watch it quite a bit because I love college basketball and watch the MLB during the summer. Also I think the 30-For-30 movies are all quite good. So I'm watching more than I ever have, but apparently nobody else is:

Their watchespn-ESPN3(360) whatever bullcrap pull they did last year doesn't really give me any reason to watch in the future either. i loved those resources for college football game day. I really could get behind a station where I could stream coverage ala HULU or Netflix fairly frequently. It's a dying business that has is become phased out in their usefulness.

I cut the cord about 2 years ago and the only thing that made it difficult was sports. The online resources are huge to me, and if they get pulled in the future I'll just keep watching at bars and with friends.

I can't respect anyone who doesn't like Colin Cowherd. He has the best, most engaging sports radio show on the radio. His takes are fantastic and the run he went on during football season with his Blazing 5 every Friday was unbelievable. The dude is fantastic. He's the best ESPN has to offer.

I will agree that First Take is a nightmare and Bayless is the absolute worst. Worst. His opinions are only generated for attention, not because he actually believes what he says. That's the worst kind of talking head. He needs 86'd in the worst imaginable way.

My big problem with Cowherd is he doesn't really give room for others opinions. He'll fight you and talk over you to always get his point across.

I actually like Cowherd, but I'll take DP over him every day.

What ESPN needs to do is get local, not national.

I watch ESPN if there is a game I want to see on and for nothing else.

I don't care what a personality thinks about sports news or how to interpret it. I can do that myself.

Don't even watch SportsCenter anymore. Don't need to be entertained ESPN.

The problem is there is too much airtime to fill and not enough sport. This is an overall problem with sports coverage. Oversaturated

I completely reject that. There are so many games across so many sports. Go deeper into the game.

Maybe not, but the fact of the matter is this, there is clearly a bias towards some teams. The Red Sox were one of the worst teams in baseball last year and they got more coverage throughout the season than the SF Giants, who you know won the World Series and all and two of the last three WS.

Layoffs, Layoffs?/Jim Mora

A 24/7 sports station with ratings dropping are having layoffs? I don't even... You are not a factory with less and less orders for product coming in. You need to fire and replace people. Layoffs?

I listen to ESPN radio nearly every day while I work. Cowherd is decent, Van Pelt and Risillo are pretty funny.

Dan Patrick is laid back and easy to listen to. I am starting to miss Jim Rome a little bit.
