ESPN can get off of my lawn.

ESPN jumped the shark years ago. Live games is all they have left-and if they go nearly 3 days without that they should just bow out.

I only watch ESPN for college football. And that's only out of necessity, when applicable. Thankfully, I can usually find a good game on other networks.

Don't worry. Soon they'll be doing E-Sports.

Can't wait for EVO 2017! They'll be playing Street Fighter Alpha and Super Monkey Ball!

ESPN is garbage for sports reporting...I do however like the 30 for 30 series. They are working on a Ric Flair one for those wrasslin fans from the 80's and early 90's.

I stopped watching ESPN for anything other than Saints, Pelicans, and LSU games since 2012, After the whole bountygate BS I was done with them along with certain reporters and media.

To play devil's advocate here, ESPN isn't the only "news" outlet that people are tired of. We live in the era of the 24/7 news cycle; overexposure to everything.

I stick to just my Yahoo Sports app on my phone for all my sports news (very convenient app), and then find ways to watch various sports events (I don't have cable, so I usually go to sports bars to watch most sports).

Same here. I'll watch CFB, the NFL, college basketball, and baseball. But I'm done with their shows. I remember I used to make sure I was watching College Gameday every Saturday morning years ago...haven't watched that in a long, long time.

ESPN is garbage. Biggest thing that irks me is, if you go to their website, they have politics on it... One of the reasons I watch sports is because it used to be an escape from everything else going on. Same reason that I&#8217;ve lost interest in the NFL, minus the Saints.

What if I told you there used to be a cable sports network that we depended on; that kids on summer vacation would watch the same show on repeat until 1 o'clock; that over a course of 10 years this network would devolve into a sports-oriented TMZ type of show.

ESPN needs to produce a 30for30 on the decline of ESPN.
