It's not your imagination

ESPN has been moving steadily leftward since it converged:
ESPN Public Editor Jim Brady on Election Eve surveyed complaints that the sports network had gone overboard with liberal pieties, frustrating long-time watchers by injecting politics onto the plahing field. He agreed with conservative complaints that ESPN had shifted leftward, though the company brass and at least one outspoken lefty personality didn’t see a problem: "One notion that virtually everyone I spoke to at ESPN dismisses is what some have perceived as unequal treatment of conservatives who make controversial statements vs. liberals who do the same."
I used to LOVE ESPN and Sportscenter back in the glory days of Keith Olbermann and Dan Patrick. I haven't even considered turning it on or even visiting the ESPN website for years.

But remember, SJW convergence is nothing that merits fighting. It's a sign that there is a sizable opportunity to exploit.

I've got no idea how it actually is in America, but I stopped watching many ESPN programmes back when I still lived in Brazil. Unfortunately I couldn't stop watching the channel as a whole because it was the only one that would broadcast European football leagues, the NFL and MLB.

The pundits were awful. They would always talk about politics instead of sticking to sports. And yes, they were all leftists (a mix between modern liberals and old-style socialists). By far the worst sports channel in Brazil in that sense.

I hadn't heard of Olbermann before he began his loathsome tenure at MSNBC. Did he undergo that much of an attitude shift from his earlier ESPN career, or is he just a trained monkey who says and does whatever his handlers tell him to?

I'm here to assure you that it's not really a problem, so don't believe you're lying eyes and ears and please keep watching us.

Olberman came from the local LA TV market, I used to see him there while growing up in SoCal. I still maintain to this day that his angry schtick comes from always playing 2nd fiddle to the long time lead sportscaster at KNBC, Fred Roggin.

I used to love Dan Patrick and Olbermann's show. Such a shame. Sports journalism is about the only kind of journalism which isn't a contradiction in terms. One could really, actually report on what was happening. Highlight reals, who is injured this week, draft prospects, even the opinion stuff was rooted in reality: should the Broncos try to draft a QB or trade for one.

But oh well, the rot takes it all I guess. Clickbait is dead, long live clickbait.

Same with me, I only flip ESPN on for MNF, and I'm barely watching any of those games. What ever happened to NFL Primetime?

I can't stand all the women - it was fine when Linda Cohn was one of the only women - she's a walking plastic surgery & implant ad now. I tuned in last year and THREE women were talking about a Penguins-Flyers game.

I'll watch NFL & NHL Networks, but they also have the SJW inclusive mindset that they MUST MUST MUST have women and minorities.

After the 'mile in her shoes' and 'pink support for Titty cancer' Fiascos, I considered ESPN and the NFL beyond recovery.

High school football is vastly more entertaining due to the 'humanity' of the players, plus you get to socialize with the players, the parents, and the community. High school football brings families together... NFL sets up a strict barrier between 'fans' and 'not fans', which usually means a Man and his family.

On most games I leave the audio down, usually, and it drives my wife up the walls sometimes. I did have it up for some ESPN game the last few weeks and they said something about Trump in a derogatory way. Wish I could remember. I do remember asking the monitor 'what the hell does that have to do with this game?' Then, turned down the audio again. Really you don't usually need to hear the commentary if you have good eyes.

Blogger tublecane November 17, 2016 6:21 PM  

I watched Olbermann and Patrick (and Kilborn, Eisen, etc.) back when I was in junior high, and found them hilarious. That was the only time I paid attention to sports as a whole, as opposed to particular interests of mine. But I tuned out when I was 14 or so.

Whenever I flip over to one of their 600 channels now, which is almost never, it doesn't look like they're even trying to be funny. All they do is yell at eachother (of course, women aren't funny anyway). That could be because I'm not 14 and don't find pop culture references and catch phrases as hilarious anymore.

I did watch their documentary on the Duke Lacrosse nonsense, and it was surprisingly fair. I fully expected the "Nifong/Mangum were liars, but actually they were right" treatment. The most damning thing about the Duke players was that they looked for strippers on Google and didn't send the girls away the second they laid eyes on them. Seriously, they let anyone into privileged, preppy, lilly-white colleges these days.

It all started when they fired Rush Limbaugh for speaking the truth when he said on the pregame show: (paraphrasing from memory)

"Donavan McNabb is somewhat overrated because the media is desirous for a black quarterback to succeed."

This was then taken by a media desirous of pushing the leftist narrative and turning it into: "Rush Limbaugh is the Grand Dragon of the KKK and advocated lynching that nigger QB for the Eagles."

It's been all to the left ever since.

It may be hard to believe there was a time when Olbermann was witty and personable and relayed the news without crapping on everyone he dislikes, but it's true. Dunno whether he was hiding his true self back then to keep his job, or if he became a douchebag later, but he and Patrick did a great show at the time.

Linda Cohn might be a cautionary tale of entryism. She wasn't hired for her looks (though she's not ugly); she grew up playing hockey with a bunch of brothers, and actually knew her stuff. But once they started hiring women, it became a moral imperative, and now all the networks are loaded with attractive women who know nothing about the sport and ask dumb questions like, "What do you have to do better in the second half?"

During the Steeler game last week, when the sideline chick did her post-halftime update, she actually said, "Coach Tomlin wanted to tell me two things...." No, dear, all he wanted to tell you was, "Get it over with; I have a team to coach." I keep hoping for the coaches to give the answers they deserve, like, "We need to score more points than they do," but they're too cowed.

ESPN is part of the reason why I no longer watch pro football and the total reason why I stopped watching Monday Night Football at all, after having watched it faithfully since it first started.
They're not that good at sportscasting (watching them on TV was like the amateur hour, very painful) and they got bolder and bolder about injecting their political views, which is not why I watch football.
Personally, the sooner ESPN folds up and closes shop, the better.

ESPN's baseball coverages is so awful it hurts. I was actually surprised at how amazing John Smoltz was during the World Series, but then again knowing Smoltz, I shouldn't have been.

I remember the halcyon days of Olbermann and Patrick, Eisen and Scott, Mayne with pretty much anybody. Back when you could watch the WWL and not be constantly bombarded with every single SJW's wet dream every 20 seconds. Hell, even the "This Is SportsCenter" commercials were extremely clever and well thought out.

Now? I only watch ESPN to catch the occasional Penn State game, and even then I refrain from watching because of the smug the emanates from the broadcast booth. I love the fact that they're giving the SJWs there in Bristol convulsion fits, ever since they led that huge SJW crusade against Penn State and Joe Paterno, in particular, such a chastisement as fallout from the Sandusky abuse case five years ago.

Say what you will about that situation, but that's what ultimately forced me to stop watching that channel (actually, ALL those channels). As an alum (and actually someone who grew up in the shadow of that legacy), Paterno was a great influence in that area. Do I think he openly let Sandusky run free to fulfill his sick desires? No. I think the guy was fooled like the rest of us. Hell, the man even admitted earlier on the day he was unceremoniously fired that he should have done more. But, don't let that get in the way of the Narrative.

Yeah, I'm still bitter, apparently. That, and LeBatard's just an idiot. Thank God Cowherd went to Fox when he did, because it forced me to find other fodder to listen to on the drive home.

Article estimates Alt-Right to be 50,000 people. The arrogance is beautiful.

“We believe that we invent symbols. The truth is that they invent us; we are their creatures, shaped by their hard, defining edges. When soldiers take their oath they are given a coin, an asimi stamped with the profile of the Autarch. Their acceptance of that coin is their acceptance of the special duties and burdens of military life—they are soldiers from that moment, though they may know nothing of the management of arms. I did not know that then, but it is a profound mistake to believe that we must know of such things to be influenced by them, and in fact to believe so is to believe in the most debased and superstitious kind of magic. The would-be sorcerer alone has faith in the efficacy of pure knowledge; rational people know that things act of themselves or not at all.”

I used to love ESPN also. 15-20 years ago I could leave sportscenter on for hours and be entertained, now it's home to dipshits like Bomani Jones and Stephen A. Smith. Let us not forget Jemele Hill, "But Jemele Hill, co-host of ESPN2’s His & Hers, isn’t buying that. “I would challenge those people who say they feel suppressed,” she said. “Do you fear backlash, or do you fear right and wrong?”. How absolutely typically black feminist leftist to imply that alternate views are wrong.

The ESPN channels have been going non-watchable and downhill since Thursday Night Thunder was canceled. Not just the cancelling of that show but the whole broadcasting package. It seems like the slide started about that timeframe. And I was not talking about a race cars slide job.

So yes, she is a white Canadian, as her name, appearance, and every borderline sane source claims

I assumed she was jewish because she talks like a jewish lesbian, walks like a jewish lesbian, & says "Fuck you white people I cant wait till you die off" like a jewish lesbian. I didn't need any links other than seeing her to recognize that. Wasn't By their fruits you will know them, the criteria for the Spanish inquisition?

With no publicly available data on her parents names. If you saw Lindsey Graham blowing little boys in a graveyard would you believe a website that said he was STR8? If I saw a guy in a European graveyard who was circumcised, smaller than my thumb & blowing someone I would assume he was jewish.

In other words, you're doubling down on the stupidity even when you've been proven wrong.

When you see a clearly white kid trying to talk in Ebonics, do you assume he is black, and then continue claiming he is when it's pointed out otherwise?

@90 if the hat is on sideways and pants are below the ass crack, coupled with the Ebonics, it amounts to undetectable negrouflage.

Would have to know more context, but the first thing that came to mind was Superbad.

I remember when Keith Olbermann first arrived on KTLA and later KCBS in Los Angeles; he singlehandedly got me to switch to a different nightly newscast. The guy has always been a leftwinger, and in my observation, a self-important prick. That he didn't spout off while on ESPN speaks well of the muzzle they must have had on him at the time.

OK, looked it up and here's the explanation:

"Patrick is joined on the air by the "Danettes": executive producer Paul Pabst ("Paulie"), executive producer Todd Fritz ("Fritzy"), director of operations Patrick O'Connor ("Seton"), and show blogger writer Andrew Perloff ("McLovin")."

He still might have adopted the nickname from Superbad, though.
