    I think the women would really struggle with that event where you catch the rings with your crotch.

    Actually, that one was out of line. Sorry.

    No such thing. And, it was funny. Fire away.

    I had to go look up the news - for those that don't know it looks like ESPN is pulling Greenie into a morning TV show.

    "The same week of our analysis, ESPN laid off upwards of 100 employees while facing criticism for becoming more outwardly political in 2016 – a trend publicly acknowledged by ESPN’s public editor.

    Our analysis captured a lot of attention, including here on Outkick the Coverage, the Wall Street Journal, POLITICO Magazine, the Washington Examiner and more.

    We are able to conduct this analysis because our specialty is measuring how niche audiences – including uniquely political ones – consume TV locally...

    So, what does all this mean for ESPN moving forward? Certainly ESPN’s problems are not purely a result of Republican viewers turning off the network. But with this larger analysis, we do see a clear national trend that ESPN is losing Republican viewers, including in major markets.

    At a time where ESPN and the larger cable industry faces changes to its business model as consumption patterns and methods evolve, our data indicates that ESPN is also facing a partisan challenge. Given ESPN’s own admission that it has become more political – and on-the-record comments from ESPN talent saying that the network’s liberal nature is likely driving away viewers – this problem appears to be largely self-inflicted at a time when the network cannot afford to lose any more of its audience."

    They have too much airtime to cover and not enough to talk about. I think most people would prefer they show game replays vs talking heads giving their opinion

    There's an underlying beef between Mike and Mike, I believe. Golic was semi hostile sounding when discussing this change on air for the first time.

    Golic doesn't appreciate how greeny has gone about this.

    Yea. Found out from agent that Mike wanted to go another route.

    They have had a longer run than anyone could have guessed, though.

    Can't blame him. The nerd and fat guy routine had to get old after 20 years
