God I certainly hope so. About the only ESPN I can stand to watch anymore is Highly Questionable. Because Papi fuckin' rules. Besides that, the only other time I was ESPN is when they air the games I want to see so I am forced into watching ESPN. Oh and I fall asleep at night to Mike n Mike (it comes on at midnight here in Hawai'i). I have been waiting years for a viable alternative to come along and hopefully this will be it.

I want the NBA to sign with NBC so we can hear the GOAT theme again...

BSPN is complete garbage. 95% of their "expert analysts" blow smoke out of their asses and act like their opinions matter. Their NBA coverage is terrible, with the Mike Breen/Jeff Van Gundy commentary duo being the only bright spot of it(Hubie Brown is also pretty good).

OK FS1 has Charissa Thompson so it's >.

Seriously though, I was watching a long promo for Fox Football Daily and I will be watching this show.

FS1 should have a show where Charissa Thompson and Erin Andrews talk about sports and play zany games while on a beach in bikinis.

CBS will get that game, be their first Saturday for their SEC coverage.

Meanwhile, the word is Time Warner Cable, DirecTV, and Dish all came to agreements as FS1 backed off on their request for 80 cents per subscriber. For now, the deal stays with 23 cents, which is what they got for Speed. So 90 million homes will get FS1 on August 17. BTW, ESPN gets $5.50 per subscriber with their agreements.

A disturbing trend taking place at ESPN. Nate Silver, one of the liberal flame-throwing bloggers from the New York Times, is coming to ESPN and will be a contributor to Olbermann's show. Also, the race-baiter Jason Whitlock apparently is returning to the Mothership. Interesting to see if he and Lupica kiss and make up, BTW.

Here's the thing, I don't give a shit about political posturing whatsoever when I'm watching the news channels. When I watch sports, I don't want that shit on my TV. If Silver, Olbermann, and Whitlock are going to do that, I have no interest in what they have to say. I know Olbermann's contract says he can't discuss politics, but he is somewhat of a loose cannon that has burned bridges everywhere he's gone, from ESPN the first time to Fox to CNN to MSNBC to Current.

When ESPN gives an effort, there's not a whole lot who can beat them. Sadly, there hasn't been much for competition as of late. FS1 sounds like a promising channel, but the only thing that'll give these guys a chance is if they get more live programming. Shows like Fox Sports Live won't move the needle. They need to work out a deal to get some NFL on that channel (possibly TNF whenever the NFLN contract is up). Need MLB on there (which shouldn't be hard with many regional Fox Sports channels having MLB teams). They need even more NCAA FB than middling BCS team vs. Little Sisters of the Poor.

To put it short, let's hold the horses on FS1 breathing down ESPNs neck. ESPNs content blows all other sports channels (excluding league owned) combined. Most thought NBCSN and CBSSN would be threats to ESPN as well and we know how they've turned out.

Exactly. While ESPN for the most part is terrible, it's going to be hard for a channel to overtake them just by how big they already are.
