I wonder how bad the backlash is going to be from sports fans who aren't in to gaming.

"That's not sports! It shouldn't be on ESPN! Gaming is stupid!"

Etc, etc.

I'm into gaming and think this is stupid. I like my sports on ESPN and my gaming on G4 or something similar

Maybe ESPN will implode into itself like the WWF... err excuse me.. WWE.

I can only imagine that ESPN's ratings are getting lower and lower as they find more excuses to put stuff besides football, baseball, and basketball on the air.

If they replaced World Series of Poker, world's strongest man, madden nation, AND1 garbage, and 50-75% of the sportscenter replays with NFL Films greatest games / superbowl highlights... I would never change the channel.
