    I’m not buying that ESPN is losing ratings due to its “liberal politics.”

    There are a lot of forces at work that will continue to drag ESPN down off its perch for the next 20 years. But this idea that all these conservative Trump supporter sports fans are no longer tuning in for political reasons is so dumb. That’s not happening.

    I think you're wrong too. I would often have espn on in the background but now it tends to annoy me so I don't. And some shows, like the one with Jemele hill, are not sports but are unwatchable. There are a number of reasons espn is losing viewers, but I think this is one of them.

    They are going to watch their team play, but I guarantee you they are less likely to watch SportsCenter or any of the other programming.

    for me, it's not the liberal politics themselves, but the fact that politics (liberal and otherwise) supplant good content.

    I’m in the middle on this. I really like SC with SVP, College Football Live and Game Day. Almost everything else with talking Heads I can’t stand. Some is that it is becoming more and more politicized, some is that the talking heads are not good. So I don’t watch nearly as much ESPN as I used to and some of it is because of politics.

    I find Trump's disparaging remarks toward McCain and his refusal to apologize to him, make Trump an even bigger hypocrite when he grandstands on anthem kneeling issue. He has no moral authority to challenge anyone's patriotism.

    This is the story -

    People will still turn on the TV to watch the game content. What they won't turn on is all of the talking head crap that plays outside of that. And as ESPN loses some of that live game content to other platforms - along with the fact that most live game content is only going on in the evenings and on weekends - they are going to continue to lose viewers.

    I used to watch sportcenter now and then, or just have ESPN on in the background during the day when doing other stuff. Now, if there isn't some sport on, I'm changing the channel.

    I started tuning out of ESPN's original content (i.e. whenever they're not actually showing a game) a few years back when their entire apparatus was focused on Ray Rice for around a month straight. That was not really a political issue, but that seemingly gave ESPN the appetite to move beyond strictly reporting on just the sports. I still watch College Game Day and that's about it aside from the actual games.

    While ESPN is very important to have for football due to the importance of each individual college and NFL game, it's easy to live without ESPN throughout the rest of the year with the exception of April and May for the NBA playoffs. It's also very easy to only subscribe for that select period of time. Who actually wants to listen to Jemele Hill? Does any hardcore or casual sports fan care to listen to her? Yet ESPN puts her on at the 6 PM hour on the east coast.

    Compare that to TNT's NBA post game show, which is awesome. It's the type of show ESPN can still do as evidenced by College Game Day.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    I really don't watch that much sports anymore - The Dodgers, Packers and BYU when they are on. If, and that's a big if, I watch a highlight show - it's normally on the NFL or MLB channel. I rarely watch ESPN.

    I may be small, but I'm slow.

    A veteran - whether active duty, retired, or national guard or reserve is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to, "The United States of America ", for an amount of "up to and including my life - it's an honor."
