    ESPN nothing more then men talking about sports like women and their cloths.

      I compare sports people more to nerds. They’re sports nerds. Why do people who watch other people play football think they’re different from p ple who watch other people play competitive League Of Legends or whatever? They’re all watching other people play games, right? Remember when Bernie Goldberg said you have to be nuts to watch e-sports? Well, it’s not my cup of tea either but he’s literally the host of a show whose entire premise is people playing games while other people watch. I mean come on.

      And what’s the problem with enjoying a sport and watching it?

    Less sports – more talk on climate change solutions.

      +Canaan – the Koch’s are past trying to make money; they do it because 1) sitting around in retirement, not being productive, is boring as hell and is bad for your mental health; 2) they’re protecting their company and their legacy; 3) they’re in a unique position of power and like being able to manipulate the system and get results for the sport of it; 4) they’re too old to care what happens 30 years from now. I’m an award winning classical music composer and I write books for a hobby so if I had their kind of money I could find better use of my time than they do, doing the things that are enjoyable and constructive for me; most people could. But for them, all they have is that company; that’s their entire life’s work. It would be nice if they started investing in renewables, but they’re old and set in their ways; they’re not innovators, but more old school turn-key operators. So I don’t think they’ll every realize they have enough money, especially if they have lots of heirs that all want to be rich like daddy.

    My cable bill got frickin’ ridiculous, so I nuked my cable TV about TEN YEARS AGO and I haven’t regretted it, nor have I missed it.

    • Posted by Dee S, at Reply

      @Dragnetta I’m with you. Not sure why all these h8rs are replying in a negative way. We gave up cable about 10 years ago too and never looked back.

    • Posted by tc16169, at Reply

      I’m with you too. Cut the cord years ago, and my provider is desperate to get me back. Every 2 weeks I get mailed some oh-so-amazing offer, but it’s always first 6 months or 1 year only, then it’s back up to their normal silly prices. No thanks.

    they were fired because ESPN wanted to “evaluate how it utilizes all their resources” meaning what? they found a robot or an app that could do there jobs better?

    • Posted by Clear Singularity, at Reply

      +Darkside Media I haven’t turned on my TV in nine years, perhaps there’s a mix of people just not watching tv to a mix other others dying off. There could be a plethora of reasons that conjuctions into the conclusion ESPN made. Perhaps ESPN has a competitive market online which is losing them business.. think outside the box.

    • Posted by Clear Singularity, at Reply

      +Darkside Media And you’re possibly right as well, I’m sure some disgruntled conservatives are turning off ESPN because they don’t want to see politics in sports.. the world is not black and white as you try to make it out to be.

    • Posted by Darkside Media, at Reply

      +Clear Singularity I agree that normal TV is dying off. However ESPNs embrace of insane left wing garbage only accelerated their fall. Who are ESPNs costumers? They are not blue haired mentally ill “gender queer” feminists. That’s for sure.

    I got rid of cable TV two years ago. I only have internet and I can watch what I want anytime I want. In ten yrs cable TV will be gone.

    • Posted by Cyruss NP, at Reply

      Splaticus Blah I’m surprised Cable TV is still around.

    • Posted by Hezekiah Ramirez, at Reply

      Oh yeah, same here. I get most of my TV from Hulu and Netflix. I’m considering adding HBO too. And when I can’t get a show legit… Well, use your imagination. But I do watch legit when I can so it would be very stupid not to make everything available because I’m not going back to cable.

    • Posted by Fucker Carlson, at Reply

      Hell Yeah! Got rid of cable back in 2012 and my life, and sanity, has been vastly improved. I’m no longer being brainwashed by the mainstream media while they shove annoying and shitty products and commercials down my throat, meanwhile paying a monopoly that provides garbage service at a high cost. Can’t wait to watch Cable TV to burn.

    • Posted by Lynn Kelley, at Reply

      Splaticus; I agree. We also picked up a Chromecast for &30 and have save over a thousand bucks in the past year, and watch a lot better stuff than we were seeing when we had cable television.

      pyledog please got back under your bridge troll, I’m glad your mom liked your comment as well. The NHL is both Canadian and American and last time I checked the NHL is run out of Toronto Ontario Canada πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦
      Let me also say this, I have respect for American hockey players and for American people who love hockey. My original statement is that ESPN and Fox have the worst commentators!

    • Posted by pyledog, at Reply

      Bender Rodriguez your original statement should be that regardless where nhl headquarters is it would have like 4 teams without your big brother…the US. all those canadian players and yet look at all the americans that support them and make sure they get paychecks. why doesnt that happen in canada? a place that soooo beloves hockey? so back to the original statement, canada has no room to talk about hockey until it develops their OWN league. i guess you guys could talk about the russian leagues. go bother them hahahahah

      I earn a decent living but I think cable is too expensive, so I think this is a financial decision for most.
      The internet allows you to watch live sports for free.

    • Posted by Hezekiah Ramirez, at Reply

      Okay but let me ask you a question. How many computing devices do you own? I bet you have a phone, tablet, and laptop. Probably a desktop too. Maybe more than one of each. I currently have an iPhone, iPad, laptop, and three desktops. I ditched cable because I didn’t want to pay for it either. But the mobile devices and computers cost a fair bit too, right? But we all have at least two. The vast majority of us, at any rate. So if cable were worth it to you then you’d still have it. But you don’t because it’s not. So it’s more than just a financial decision. It’s because cable is obsolete. Your internet and phone bills are more than just basic cable would be. So you’re not just saying the price is too high. You’re saying it’s not worth it. And I agree.

    • Posted by Dah Bajanman, at Reply

      I’m one of those who have a desktop, a few tablets and 2 laptops. When I say financial decision, I’m basically pointing to the fact we are paying for a subscription, but we’re watching fewer than 5 channels and that makes no sense when I can go with Sling where I pay for what I really want to watch. Cable needs to evolve to win me back.

    • Posted by DC-Tiki, at Reply

      Not really, a lot of the behind the scenes crew who make up the bulk of these numbers (editors, cameramen, graphics, etc,..) were not earning 100K a year, that’s for sure. The networks have resorted to using increasing amounts of automation and software to replace the lost workforce in order to keep the shows running and on air. With the industry shrinking further and further, there are a lot of people now out of pocket and trying to figure out what the hell to do now that their career path has effectively been closed off to them.

    • Posted by Econovus, at Reply

      I was shocked to learn that workers in the Us can be sacked immediately like this. We have a government service that protects you from that in Australia. I feel really bad that these people who could be working pay to paycheck are now without a job in the bad economy.

    • Posted by Cyruss NP, at Reply

      Econovus yes it happens often and there’s never compassion for those who lose their jobs. I still remember a job I had where the supervisor and manager were laughing it up about a girl they fired BECAUSE she needed the job to feed her baby. I quit right after that.

    looks like people don’t want liberal propaganda shoved down their throat.

    • Posted by Hezekiah Ramirez, at Reply

      You might have a point once rigt wing websites start making money but until then, not so much. The formats that are thriving (internet, VOD) are dominated by progressive content whereas the conservatives are desperately hanging onto sinking ships like TV and AM radio. So when that changes you might have a leg to stand on here but as of now you just don’t.
