    ESPN as an idea was ridiculed, but it led the way that cable tv would develop, even more than HBO. My only objection is the way they turned sports commentary into a weak version of stand-up comedy, disregarding results to reach for lame punch lines.

    Another PR black eye for ESPN as more evidence that this 'sports network' is dying in front of our eyes. .. ESPN (again) is late again with coverage of (another) Roethlisberger sexual assault story. They outright ignored the first one and now were awfully slow (again) this time around. We get non-stop 'stories' of the size of Brett Favre's turds and how that will affect his return/retirement but when there is an actual story, this network seems to have a clear agenda with certain athletes. Something is seriously, seriously, wrong. . .it's time to start having the discussion about this network being nothing more than part of the PR marketing scheme for athletes instead of a real sports network with anything resembling objective coverage. (old review.) . . .slipping fast. . .get rid of the non-sports TV crap. . .get rid of the fake reality shows. . .get rid of fat losers wearing stupid glasses playing poker and put on real sports. . .ESPN is slipping into MTV-without-videos territ...

    Was far better back in the day, when they actually analyzed the games. Now, it's become the sports world's version of Last Comic Standing. Redunkulous!

    ESPN's coverage of the Monday Night Football game 'favored' the Green Bay Packers. Too much focus on Favre and Rogers instead of the game and the players IN THE GAME!

    Resse and Mayday are extremely interesting and have great insight. Bob Greise is terrible. I has turned off the ESPN shows at least three times when Greise starts talking. Get rid of him. He adds nothing to the dynamics of resse and Mayday. SWK

    They seem kind of biased but I watch them quite a bit for sports coverage.  I like ESPN news better....though since ESPN took over the Breeders Cup they have given it the attention it deserves.

    Nobody, and I mean Nobody does college sports casting as good as ESPN, Especially Reese Davis. Reese you are phenomenal! Reese, i have kept up with you since the WRBL days! Keep up the good work!!

    I love sports AND I HATE espn. This network cares more about appeasing feminists, NAACP, criminals, labor unions, human resource managers and rappers. Plus, they love to cater to this generations biggest special interest group...the ADD kids. Is it possible to cram more graphics, sounds and special effects into a 5 second span...seriously? Do real sports fans still watch this channel? I avoid this channel unless I'm forced to watch it because my team is on MNF or Game of the which case, I mute it so I only have to see the video portion.

    A lot of their analysts care more bout' their own little gimmicks and they focus of the negative too much. My uncle said that they were talkin' so much about Vick that they should have renamed the channel ESPN-V. Despite this its still the best sports channel though, I didnt watch Fox Sports that much.

    While they may have the highest volume of sports coverage, they really don't have the best quality of sports coverage. For example, TNT does a much better job of covering NBA games. But poorly done coverage is better than none at all. A lot of games just wouldn't be covered at all without ESPN.

    Still the ONLY sports network that really exists and ESPN, along with its subsidiaries (ESPN2, etc.) has always been and still is all-encompassing and comphrensive. Still, like the rest of the country the network is becoming very liberal, and hence very sleazy and unintelligent in many, many areas: The intro of ESPN Hollywood, the ESPYs are amazingly cringe-inducing and unbearable to watch -it's more of a sleazy celebrity trash show than a sports award presentation show. And ESPN is buying out and taking over everything. They now own the rights to Monday Night Football and Tirico and Cornheiser absolutely SUCK compare to ANY prior MNF announcers (though their show "Pardon The Interruption is entertaining). Like the rest of the country, ESPN is losing its edge and rapidly becoming a self-parody.

    Going down fast...ignorant NBA commentators, a rabidly sensationalistic and liberal Sportscenter obsessed with women athletes...seriously, what's their deal with Danica Patrick, women dunkers and Annika Sorenstam? One show I watched recently couldn't stop replaying this NCAA female basketball player, BIG DEAL! The woman was totally arrogant too...this channel needs to stop hiring ex-athletes for the basketball commentary and overhaul Sportscenter...

    Update: This is why I hate espn. Espn always beats a story into the ground. I'm watching espnnews right now and they're constantly reminding us about the NFL labor talk, and they're counting down the minutes for the roster cuts! Isn't there something else you can talk about Espn? Stop ramming a story that you think is important down our throats. They're the #1 place to get sports updates, but...and this is a big but, I can't stand the t.v. analysts, especially Sean Salisbury. When he talks, he acts like he was a hame of fame qb, Sean you were a scrub buddy! The worst thing about most of espn's analysts is that they try to hard to be "cool."

    The original man channel. Way before spike tv. But I'd wish they wouldn't show stuff like Bass Master, and Deer Hunter.

    If you're any kind of sports fan, its hard not to like at least elements of this channel. I get a little tired of the filler stuff, particularly the talking head jock shows, or highlights from riveting sporting events like the Mid-west Regional Left-handed Albanian Feather Throwing Championship, but when they stick to real sports and not just yakking about them, they're pretty good.

    I work such long hours that I get to see very little of the cable TV that costs me $50.50 per month. If it wasn't for ESPN and a couple other channels, I'd probably chuck the whole subscription. How can any male not like ESPN? I think it's a prerequisite to being an American male. If you have a penis you can't live in the States unless you watch a certain amount of ESPN each month.

    Best by default. Just keep giving us live sporting events. Skip poker, shows like Tilt and game shows. Just stick to SportsCenter and live events.

    Its good, but i hope it doesn't turn into an MTV type channel where it gets away from its main theme an tries to appeal to the teenage crowd.

    Not as good as it used to be. Maybe it's just the natural process of becoming less interested in sports as I grow older, or maybe it's because they run Sportscenter 57 times a day. Good football and baseball broadcasts, though.

    I don't keep up with sports much. I like a good game of college football now and again, but I like to watch my own school and they arent very good (117th). I would much rather be participating than watching when it comes to sports, but to each, his own.

    Does a 24 hour a day sports network ever get old? Not for me. ESPN covers it all, with live sports action almost every day of the year.

    I don't particularly care for the way ESPN manipulates sports for their own gain [Want an example - SportsCenter changed the NBA from a mid-range shooters game to a dunk and 3-pointer sideshow cause that's how a baller gets air time, ergo More Jack]. That being said, if I wasn't married, it would be the only channel I'd ever watch.

    ESPN2 remains better than its parent network, even if ESPN2 itself is slowly sinking downhill. Simply put, the worldwide leader of sports does not show enough sporting events. They constantly, CONSTANTLY repeat Sportscenter to the point of boredom. There are shows about sports that aren't actually events. And, even worse, there are now reality shows on a sports network. When they aren't showing Baseball or other enjoyable events, they are showing useless stuff like Poker. Five hours of Poker is completely stupid and useless. Where's the Badminton? Field Hockey? Sailing? Table Tennis? Track and Field? Beach Volleyball? Lacrosse? There are so many exciting sports that could be aired and aren't. Another flaw is their setup. I believe their network should change the whole ambience of their broadcasting. Instead of seperate bits for each event, they should do it more like the networks of NBC did during the Olympics. Have an introduction every few hours and have one professional broadcaster ... Read more

    The room is all dark except for the screen, some guys are in red shirts, some guys are in green. There's a break in the action but soon they'll be more, I'd go to the bathroom but someone might score. It's ESPN--ESPN-- you're the reason I'm single again. Life is for losers, sports is your friend, and who's got more sports on than ESPN. (Buskin and Batow)

    Has all the great sports but Sportscenter has become painful to watch anymore, especially Stuart Scott. You need an English-Ebonics dictionary to understand him. And like the rest of television, the reality garbage is raising its ugly head.

    It would be better if their baseball broadcasts eliminated Joe Morgan and put somebody halfway tolerable in there. They could also improve by replacing the awful Stuart Scott of SportsCenter with somebody without so many stupid cliches.

    If my TV's on, odds are I'm watching ESPN. Sportscenter provides a substantive recap of the day's events. Baseball Tonight is also must-see TV, with extensive highlights and commentary from the likes of Harold Reynolds and Peter Gammons. NFL Primetime has cut down on their highlights from past years, but it's still a great show. I like Outside the Lines too. ESPN does a fine job touching on controversial, off-the-field subjects such as steroids in baseball and sidelines reporters posing in Playboy and FHM (my favorite subject matter discussed, harhar).

    ESPN is pretty bad now. It used to be amazing, but the again so did SportsCenter... ESPN started the downhill roll when it assimilated espn2, forcing it to use its lame red and black graphics and show Cold Pizza instead of Premier League Soccer. I used to be able to find something of value on ESPN, espn2, or ESPN Classic at all times, but now they've become mindless and boring. SC, go back to the old graphics, the tan and black-style ones. Forsake the Space Station set. It's the only way to return to ESPN's glory days.
