ESPN 3 and ESPN + has sports and the odd sports. I do to recall waking up to Korean baseball.on ESPN. I also wake up to F1 racing on Sundays which I have enjoyed. The F1 announcers are much better than the NASCAR announcers.I thought everyone was tired of constant talking heads. I guess not. I can do without all the talk shows. Maybe it’s just me...
The good stuff is Dan’s first hour (the local hour). He has/had more liberties with the Miami crowd.ESPN Radio lineup is absolute garbage...I generally have it on in the background when at the desk during the day. Morning show is awful (Keyshawn, JWill and Zubin). LeBatard was a respite before being subjected to Greeny and then Kellerman. Both are terrible. Cheney and Golic Jr have no chemistry, nor do Spain and Fitz (Sarah is decent; Jason is awful). In any case, I wish Dan and the "shipping container" well. Will attempt to follow them to wherever they end up. I realize that Dan has always been loyal to his crew, but he really needs to dump Weiner/Stugotz.
Yeah he got in trouble for this a couple of years ago,I know he's clashed with espn corporate before even getting suspended a time or two
It wasn't so much that his show was quirky, the few times I watched bits and pieces of his show's segments, I realized it came across as odd but also sort of silly and hate to say this, a bit stupid and juvenile. A grown up professional sports journalist using his variety cable sports series as almost amateurish, late teens sort of behavior. A lot of silly antics and stunts, but rarely anything of substance that kept me enthralled long enough until he decided to get serious.Loyal LeBetard listener/viewer; can't say I saw this coming, but it was certainly in the works. Don't always agree with the position he takes, but I appreciate his passion.
Yeah, the show is quirky, takes a little getting used to and such, but he always tended to push the envelope a bit. Completely enjoyed how he railed against the ESPN "machine".
I wish him well and will follow him; wherever he ends up. Stugotz/Weiner can go. Hope that Mike, Roy, Guillermo and Chris can land on their feet. Chris had been laid off a few weeks ago, but Dan kept him on and paid him out of his own pocket.
Also, knowing how diverse and multi-faceted his large audience base is listening into him from Miami and south Florida, they tend to be a lot more open-minded, tolerant and receptive to some of his takes on NFL, MLB, NCAAF, or NBA as well as important socio-political events like Black Lives Matter movement that exploded more into mainstream due to police misconduct, brutality, and systemic racism this summer and over the past 5-6 years gradually. Also, I suspect he can be more himself and not some, silly, forced over-the-top corporate charactiture of himself some viewers nationwide perceive him as.The good stuff is Dan’s first hour (the local hour). He has/had more liberties with the Miami crowd.
