I assume ESPN wants some level of objectivity from the analysts, Teddy brings none of that. If you really need a man to just be an apologist for the NE Patriots, then maybe you can find another spot for him.
I am a college football fan, but I can no longer enjoy a game in which Kirk Herbstreet is doing the color analysis. The man is beyond annoying and never, I mean never shuts up! Is there no one at your network with the sense to tell this guy to put a sock in it? I can only thank God that I have a mute button on my remote.
I am not happy that ESPN has elected not to show the WTA tennis matches that are part of the Western Southern Open. The matches that are being shown are the men's matches or the ATP matches. That is not right. All matches should be shown. Not just the men's matches.
I for the first time watched ESPN MLB, Dodgers vs Giants. The announcers were horrible! I think the three guys that announce are under the impression we turn on the game to hear them talk about themselves. If it was a talk show and someone asked them a question about them great, but it is not, it is a baseball game and we are watching to hear about the two teams that are playing. Sincerely, Disappointed Viewer.
During a commercial on 710 ESPN radio Marcelis stated neighborhood rolling 60. That is a L.A gang that is notorious for killing, who just killed a young man on June 10, 2015 and shot two innocent bystanders. Please don't condone gangs.
Once again ESPN has sold out to sell more advertising over quality. ESPN decides to choose Caitlyn Jenner for the Arthur Ashe courage award is nothing but a decision to help sell more commercials. When there are so many more people who deserve this award. I for one will not be watching the ESPY's! Boo to you ESPN.
What has happened? I think much to my disappointment you are giving Bruce Jenner a reward that in my wildest Dreams, and I am somewhat up to date in current affairs in the world. Although I believe in live and let live. what has he done to earn this award? There are so many more people in the world that are worthy and could have been acknowledged for a award of this nature. Being a supporter of the Jimmy V foundation, he must be rolling over in his grave. As a world Olympic champion who has chosen at 65 years old to live out his life as a female, good for him and Gods speed. This has changed my view of ESPN and all the good you have accomplished over the years.
Women's college NCAA softball has aired EVERY game on ESPN and the FINAL game tonight is blacked out in Southern California. I have Direct TV who says they have no control over the black out. This is a shame for us who want to watch the championship game. I am so disappointed.
Where the heck did you find the 2 goofs who are announcing the A's/Tigers game today 5/25/15? They NEVER shut up and they can't pronounce my A's players correctly. They are very negative. Sam Fuld is an amazing player who has made some super amazing plays lately and these goofs say he's a little player. They know nothing about the A's ability, therefore, make them out to be sub par. Our one player Marcus Semien who has made 11 errors in 16 games they say is a good player. I hope they don't announce anymore A's games. They need more training. They are for some reason hooked on the pitcher green and don't feel our pitcher Hahn is good. Get rid of them.
Your coverage of women's lacrosse championships was not adequate. My daughters and I sat down to watch the women's final four and had to streamline it on ESPN3. It didn't work so we couldn't watch. You air all of the men's game yet we had to streamline the women's final four. That's ridiculous. There are a lot of people that would rather watch women's lacrosse and not men's.
I attempted to watch tonights Red Sox vs Ranger game tonight. It turned out to be a terrible experience in viewing. If I wanted a Japanese lesson, I'd go back to school. Then to make things worse, you bring on that disgraced clown Bobby Valentine, the master of disaster! Please stick to baseball, couldn't find out the averages as the announcers were overloading my circuits on the Eastern culture etc etc. Have you no shame? Please from now on show baseball not Asian culture. Thanks for ruining my game experience.
The background noise is so loud you cannot hear the play by play or color men. I have started turning off the audio on my TV. Will you please address this problem. I know I am not the only one with this complaint. A friend suggested that I turn the audio off, because that is what he says he does.
Heard you are letting bill Simmons go, not sure of your reasoning there. He's only the best writer you have and the only one who's arctic I actually look for. Seems to me you would rather be associated with someone like brit than someone who actually had the talent to be at the top of his profession. Bills columns have me laughing so hard my s sides hurt but oh well. Plenty of other places to get sports news from.
The Sunday night MLB announcers John Kruk and Curt Schilling repeat the same things all game long. Please listen to the Red Sox /Yankee game on May 3. They spent the first 4 innings repeatedly discussing Joe Kelly's 2 seam vs 4 seam fastball. Really, have someone from your company listen to how much time they repeatedly talk about Kelly's fastballs. Schilling knows nothing about hitting and only talks about pitching nonstop. Horrible and boring.
Firstly, let me start of by saying, I've been a long-time fan and have never filed an email complaint form to ESPN in my life. However, the actions of Mr. Marcellus Wiley last night were both appalling and disrespectful. For one, how does an ESPN colleague, may I also add, also a co-host colleague to Michelle Beadle go so far off as to rant all night on how much they love and RESPECT Floyd Mayweather, when only a few hours earlier he and his camp shamelessly took her credentials away and banned for her the fight.
It's one thing to have opposing views and opinions, but it's an entirely different thing to disrespect your colleague Michelle Beadle by using those words and profoundly ranting about your love and admiration for Mayweather. I am so appalled by his actions, that I will no longer be watching ESPN, and turn to Fox Sports.
Stephen A Smith should be suspended for his outspoken support of Floyd Mayweather who is clearly an abuser of women 5 times over. Stephen also accuses female victims of provoking them into being abused. This is totally outrageous of someone who is a host of a tv program!!
I cannot believe you have chosen not to fire Britt McHenry. She is a bully in the truest meaning of the word. You slapped her on the wrist, which tells me that ESPN approves of bullying. She is so full of herself and knew that she could bully and do anything she wanted to do and would still have a job. What would you have done it it had been a male employee who bullied a female? Shame on ESPN. Until she is fired, l will no longer watch ESPN. After all, We now have SEC to watch.
I am once again very disappointed in your decision to have "Britt McHenry" hosting your programs. I am truly saddened by your support of your employee's behavior. I am not interested in having this "Bully" review any games or sporting events! I do not agree that this woman has had enough time to think about being a professional and redeem the consequences.
I know so many more talented women who would NEVER consider being so CRUDE!! Please reconsider this plea, and give her a better, more respectable sanction.
Its absurd that mature adults have to watch a baseball game with a box to let us know where the pitch goes!we don't need it we don't want it its a distraction and it should be removed! Never to be seen again during a baseball game!it's useless technology that doesn't help the viewer see the ball go over the plate with that box there! Please remove it.
Britt McHenry should be fired. She was mean and horrible. She bullied, berated, and belittled that woman. She was even told she was being filmed and that didn't stop her. She has been exposed for what she is, and she needs to be held accountable for her actions. I don't wish her physical harm. I just hope that you reconsider her employment. I am sure there are plenty of nice "college educated" women and men out there who would be happy to take her place. Please start interviewing them...
I'm certainly not the fjrst....and I won't be the last, but I'm begging you to give your loyal customers a classic website option. I'm not sure what prompted the change from the old layout, but this new unveil has me completely baffled. I wouldn't be commenting if this didn't truly affect the way I've browsed online sports. This new website layout I've tried for a couple of weeks to adapt to, but the old layout was by far superior
The new website is worse than the old one. Things are too hard to find instantaneously like before. Go back to the previous website.
Dear ESPN executives, my post again on Facebook. As I said, I will continue to keep this going till this bully is fired. Please e-mail your complaints to ESPN complaints department on line. Imagine someone saying these words to your wife, daughter, mother cousin, niece, best friend. 12 insults and here is the video as well I have written it out.
1- I'm in the news sweetheart and I will "Blank" sue this place.
2- That's why I have a degree and you don't.
3- I wouldn't work at a scumbag place like this.
4- Makes my skin crawl just being here.
5- Yep, that's all you care about is just taking peoples money.
6- With no education, no skill set, just want to clarify that.
7- Do you feel good about you job?
8- So I could be a college drop out and do the same thing?
9- Why, cause I have a brain and you don't.
10- Maybe if I was missing some teeth they would hire me huh?
11-O, like yours is o stunning (criticizing the lot attendant's teeth)....cause I'm on television and your in the "Blank" trailer honey.
12-Lose some weight baby girl!
FIRE HER TODAY! You are supporting a bully!
This balls and strikes square on the screen has to go !! I'm from St. Louis where we have very knowledgeable fans, and I talked to a lot of my friends, and customers at the casino I work at, and not one of them likes it, in fact they hate it to the point of not watching it when ESPN broadcast, and listening to the radio with Mike Shannon, and John Rooney! This is worse than the red line following the puck in hockey. When on the air why not have fans call in and vote on it, and post the results in the 7th inning or so? I know I'm just speaking for St. Louis, but I'm pretty certain that the whole country will feel the same way! Thank you for your consideration in this matter. Go Redbirds !!!!
Britt McHenry needs more than a week off (vacation?). The video is absolutely shocking and certainly not representative of your fine network. She needs to work in a soup kitchen, get dirty, be common. She's lost touch with reality. If my child acted like that, I would wash their mouth out with soap, demand a real apology and get some serious counseling for them. Really her behavior is inexcusable under any circumstances, but a towed car? Wait until you get a real problem like the death of a loved one or a cancer diagnosis. It's admirable that the recipient of her wrath has not asked for her to be terminated and actually tried to play down the event. Please make this a teaching moment for Britt, and if she is truly not contrite, she needs to go elsewhere. Yuck!
As a long time loyal viewer, I have never seen an ESPN employee get so much deserved hate. Britt McHenry shows such poor character and only gets a one week suspension? After hammering down on Stephen A Smith for saying something that was nothing more than wise words about women not provoking or escalating a fight if your in a domestic dispute. He got two weeks for something that you should tell your own children: Not to provoke a fight or escalate a situation. I hope you make the right decision and let her go. I do believe in second chances, but I for one, and many others I know, will not view any programming that involves her after this tirade. It is one of those things that will not be erased from viewers memories and will always be associated when she is seen.
Why does ESPN support Tony Kornheiser as he uses his ESPN radio show to further his political views and agends, rather than only report and and share his opinions about sports. Friday, Tony chose not to discuss one candidate because they were low hanging fruit. Instead, he chose to slander another candidate. In fact, he accused a United States Senator of lying. He also pased judgement on how that candidate's family chose to deal with a child's physical handicap, and how an eight year handicapped boy would / could / should find encouragement and inner strength.
As a long term viewer of your network I feel it is my duty to provide you with my feedback. The recent events involving Britt McHenry have really struck a cord with me. She came off as a self-entitled brat who is full of hate. It is unfortunate that the video was leaked but there is no going back now. I feel that if you do not cut ties with her, ESPN will be associated with this disgusting behaviour. As a public figure she should of known better and its time for you at ESPN to do the right thing.
Fire Britt McHenry! For a person to get mad at a company is one thing but to attack a person concerning his/her ability's shows a clear lack of respect on her part. McHenry is just a sorry individual .....no integrity.
ESPN shame on you for slapping Britt's hand instead of where it would hurt, her wallet! Fire the girl. If somebody signed me up for ESPN magazine I will refuse payment, should it arrive.
I was very disappointed to see the video of Britt McHenry's appalling treatment of the tow truck driver. I can understand how upset one is to have their car towed, but how she made her attack so personal and degrading is totally unacceptable. How she could comment on someone's lack of education, missing teeth and her living conditions was beyond cruel. I would hope that you have a higher standard for your reporters and let this haughty, hateful and mean girl go. If I were an athlete with any integrity, I would refuse to give her an interview of any kind. I have a beautiful daughter, and would be ashamed and disappointed if I ever heard her berate another human being like Britt McHenry. Rest assured that she should no longer be employed by ESPN.
I am appalled that Washington based reporter Britt Mchenry is still on your payroll. She is an absolute punk idiot. Can her and replace her with someone who isn't so full of themselves.
Dear ESPN executives, mMy husband and I watch ESPN first thing in the morning, lunch breaks, finally after work 7 days a week. I am so EXTREMELY DISGUSTED with the recent reporting that you have chosen to only suspend "Britt McHenry" for one week. In my opinion that tells me you would prefer to give a minor sanction to someone who displays her true colors on multiple occasions. In the law people need to understand foreseeable actions. What if that woman who was insulted beyond anything I can bear to hear went home and KILLED HERSELF? I understand that she did not, however by keeping her apart of your PROFESSIONAL team tells me you support BULLIES!!! We have laws to protect children and what makes you think this worker should be any different? Britt said "toothless", what if woman cannot afford her teeth to be fixed? Britt said she is a college dropout....who does she think she is? The insults were beyond the most gross I have ever heard.
If I was witness I would have called the POLICE for a HATE CRIME!!! You are in a trailer? I understand the clerk may have been pushed into stating some comments back, however ALL EMPLOYES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS!!! Britt should have been classy, paid the bill, and turn the other cheek. Isn't that what we thrive our culture to do? Make peace. It is obvious that "Britt McHenry" thinks she is above EVERYONE, but I feel this girl needs some humble pie. And be FIRED TODAY!!! I know in my professional experience I am held accountable for my company’s reputation on and off the clock. This is a reflection of ESPN network. I will start a petition on Facebook, and tell all my friends to let them know how you value this DISGUSTING BEHAVIOR!! I am so mad, and DISAPPOINTED! I will think twice about supporting your network if you keep "Britt McHenry" employed!
Keith Oberlander - inept, incompetent, is not familiar with his topic, dated appearance, rude and an embarrassment to ESPN and the sports world. Now fast forward to your long standing joke, Kornhowisier or however you spell it, who got fired from Monday Night Football (what took them so long) Another political agenda brought to a sports show with no integrity or credibility. Just get rid of them - I spoke to several groups today referencing these fakes (never played high school anything) and fully exposed ESPN and their apparent new agenda for what it is. Sometimes if it looks and appears to be pathetic it is. Get rid of them.
Britt McHenry needs to go. She thinks she is attractive. What she showed was that she is a very ugly person. She might be a good reporter, but you don't treat people like she did.What I saw on the video, this kind of outburst will happen again and again. ESPN needs to cut their losses. ESPN acted quickly but not strong enough. After you can her I would not hire her to be my lot clerk.
i am appalled at the degrading,pompous attitude you employee Britt McHeny displayed towards not only the lady working at the towing company but towards all of us who work and live in the real world. She showed her utmost disdain and lack of respect for that poor girl in the towing companies office. The words she used were not only hateful but extremely hurtful to not only the employee but to a lot of people who, because of their income or genetics, do not meet Britts high standard of associates. I cannot believe you have someone like Britt representing your company.Is that how your company and the rest of your sports casters feel about all of us normal low dwelling people? i will not waste another moment watching your channel or support any of your sponsors from now on unless i hear through the news that you have done the right thing and relieved Britt of all her duties at your company. She maybe does deserve a second chance... but let another company decide whether to hire her or not. This is a blunder of gigantic proportion....
Due to NOT Dismissing Britt McHenry, ESPN is now the National Enquirer of sports television. At any other respectable business she would have been fired immediately. I hope the attendant sues Ms. McHenry for everything she's worth. She didn't just stop at one or two insults, she continued to unleash scornful abuse. That in my opinion is the reason she should be terminated. IMMEDIATELY!!!
take britt mchenry off off off off the air !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! how can you allow her back on when she shows such ignorance and arrogance to people are probably your fan base?????????? TAKE HER OFFF THE SHOW---BLACKLIST HER--- LET'S SEE WHAT HER" BRAIN" MAKES OF NOT BEING ABLE TO FIND ANOTHER JOB !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Britt McHenry needs to be fired!!!! How can you tolerate such a disrespectful person working for you!?!? Apology doesn't cut it. Those were her true feelings, only sorry because of the feedback. She represents ESPN ... How can you put her back on the air!?!? Yes everyone deserves a second chance but actions have consequences. Let her go find a second chance in Montana
Regarding the behavior of your Britt McHenry and her treatment of the clerk at the towing company, I respectfully suggest that Ms. McHenry lose her job. Her handling of the situation was clearly not an emotional reaction as she claimed in her weak apology, but was the result of arrogance and pride. I believe that this occurrence was not a mistake but rather a flaw in her character which should not be rewarded by a slap on the wrist. This incident has given ESPN a huge black eye. Please take action!
What Britt McHenry did at the tow truck facility, demeaning another person - is a form of bullying and she should be fired! It was disgusting to watch and after I saw this display of such lack of character - with her fake apology today ( just to save her job ) - I would never watch ESPN again because anything with her face on it would disgust me. She should be fired for bullying and verbal harassment.
Can't believe that you are still going to allow Britt McHenry to work for this company after her belittling remarks. How dare she expect that because she is a "celebrity" she deserve any different treatment. And to be that rude to an attendant that was just doing their job is unbelievable. That attendant has more class than your "celebrity employee". To give her one week suspension is a disgrace and a slap in the face to anyone who is trying to earn a meager living and do their job.
I would rate you at a no-star as of today. I just watched numerous posts of your girl Britt verbally assaulting the tow customer service attendant. Wow, how on earth can you continue to have her work and be affiliated with your business? She is a horrible black hole of a human being. Who speaks to someone like that and gets away with it? This little apology thing that she did was as phony as she is herself. I will never forget this instance and the association with ESPN. In a time in the world when we are all striving to live with more peace and love in this world there are maggots like her openly and freely spewing her abuse on a innocent human being only doing their job it is insane. This infuriates me and many others to no end. I would fired her on the spot. Please have more integrity when hiring your employees, after all they are a direct reflection of what you ESPN stand for.
Espn you really need to fire that reporter that verbally abused that parking attendant. She is representing your organization, and makes you look bad. She had no business treating another human being the way she did. I will be cancelling all of my association with espn until something is done!
How can you only suspend Brit McHenry for a single week? If this was a male employee he would be fired immediately. I do not care what she looks like her actions speak to her character. He apology is not genuine and she sounds like a lawyer. You should hear the radio hosts in the Philadelphia area and peoples reaction. Not happy with ESPN! Any time her face appears on the screen I will be immediately flip the channel. She is a phony and she needs to be reprimanded for her actions! Your decision is disappointing!
When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. Britt McHenry showed you who she is. Do the right thing. A suspension is not the right thing. A dismissal is. Thank you.
I am so disgusted with Britt McHenry, how can you let that woman continue to work for you, she sounds like a spoiled rotten brat and straight up bitch, who probably knows nothing about the sports she is covering and probably got her position soley based on looks!
I have to tell you. If you don't relieve Britt McHenry of her job you have no moral or ethical fiber in the management of your company. To watch someone who has been gifted with a beautiful face denigrate and attempt to embarrass someone who is just doing their job in the manner that. Ms McHenry turned my stomach. She is in essence the face of your network right not and it is pretty disgusting. It is obvious to me and everyone I have discussed her performance with, that she acts like this more often than this single incident. She exemplifies a spoiled self centered
narcissist and as the representative of your company it doesn't look good. I promise you I will do my best to let people see this and to respond exactly as I have until this woman is relieved of her position. She causes me to be embarrassed to ever say that I watch ESPN or ever admired her work. Until she is gone I will abstain from watching anything you put on the air.
I just saw the video of Britt claiming her car a tow lot. I understand that it must have been a frustrating situation. But she verbally attacked and very personally insulted the person working there. She repeatedly declared that she worked in the news business and the other person lived in a trailer and was beneath her. IS this the public persona that ESPN wants out there for their sideline reporters/cheerleaders? Her loving glances in her mirror every morning should be interrupted by doubts about her own self worth. Perhaps being fired would make the world a better place, especially from a motivational standpoint for her.
I would like to see you (ESPN), take action against Britt McHenry for her bulling threats and demoralizing language of the tow truck attendant. I don't care who you are or what you do for a living, you need to be held responsible for your actions. With the recent actions of a number of male sports figures towards women, let us not forget that same gender assault/demoralization/threading behavior is in no means any better.
A longtime arena football fan, I tuned in to ESPN2 to watch the Arizona Las Vegas game on Sat. 4 April. The game was a very exciting and enjoyable event, however, the broadcasting coverage, if you want to loosely call it coverage, was the worst I've ever seen over my many years of sports viewing!!! It was plain terrible, to say the least. All you could hear was the Arena and crowd noise with occasional audible words from what was suppose to be an announcer!!! This only got worse as the event progressed and when it was over, there were no "sign-off words or comments" from anyone and the programming just meshed right into basketball! Never seen anything like it before and hope not to in the future. It was the worst broadcasting I've ever seen anywhere. Please look into this situation and make it right by doing whatever it takes to bring reasonable broadcasting back to this programming.
I am currently watching the April 12th 2015 Boston/Yankee game. The broadcasters in the booth are talking just to talk. The drivel they put out is inane. None of them knows how to call a ballgame. They are always trying to get their opinion in, talking over each other. I will probably follow my brother-in-laws example, just mute the sound. When want to watch a game, that's all I want to do: watch. I grab a beer, some snacks, and put my feet up ready to relax for the next few hours. Only, it's not relaxing when you have commentators talking over each other. I understand that baseball games have a lot of "down time" but that time should not be spent with grown men arguing over asinine opinions. ESPN, get some qualified commentators for your sports broadcasting and not just ex-players that like to commemorate about the good ol' days.
Please for the love of Zhod get rid of that Damn strike box on your ESPN broadcast. This is the worst and the second week in a row. Please do your viewers this common courtesy!
I put on a baseball game and your stupid K Zone was up. I am a fanatic fan and watch as much about baseball in general as i can. I have been an ESPN fan since you started on TV. I will never watch ESPN or a baseball game again on your broadcast. You ruined the pitch, the swing or not and the umpires choice for numerous reasons. You ruined fans debating and arguing which has been going on since baseball started about strikes and balls called by the ump Simple as that. I have many friends who are following me or stopped before me. Goodbye ESPN. Someday you'll actually care about us fans.
Your new format on you web page sucks. The old one (red) was fine and easy to use and find information. I am switching to foxsports.com
I have just watched the Florida State - Notre Dame baseball game on ESPN 3 and the televising was terrible. The picture was blurred to start with and the whole game was televised thru the net which made it awful. The camera was shaky to the point it hurt our eyes. If you didn't know the player you couldn't see who it was. The game never showed the angle from the pitcher to the plate. Always thru the net and couldn't see the pitch. To say the least I was very disappointed with ESPN 3.
Could your reporting of the NCAA Frozen Four game between Boston University and North Dakota be more one sided? Let's see, you shown the Boston pregame message from their coach, interviewed the coach during the first period, interviewed a parent of one of the BU players and then interviewed the BU player. Gee, I thought you were a national sports media outlet, but your reporting seems to indicate you're not. Hopefully, you correct this error in the remaining two periods.
I don't know what you've done to your website. It used to be fairly cumbersome to navigate but eventually you could get to items of interest. Now your site is just a bunch of useless garbage. I for one will no longer be using your useless site.
I opened my espn app and found a new format. I don't recall ESPN ever advertising a new format so I was a little excited to see what it was all about but my excitement was immediately squashed with utter frustration and disappointment. I don't like having to sign in to see what's going on in the sports world but even more frustrating is the fact my screen constantly freezes up. This never happened with your old format so I'm convinced this new format was never tested before it was forced upon the public. It's time for me to find a new sports venue until you work out the bugs with this piece of garbage!
Mike Tirico should not be on TV during the events you have him on because he doesn't have a clue. All he does is read stats that's pumped in his headset. When you have any event you always put someone who is knowledgeable about the event he is doing because he doesn't have a clue. He can't do basketball, football, and for God's sake please get him off golf. All he is a stat man.
ESPN denying a 12 year old boy from receiving the bracket challenge winnings despite his winning bracket ... Booo bad move both espn and best buy!
The new mobile format for espn nfl is just bad. I cannot get to insider info very easily and when I do it sends me to a different article. I pay monthly for insider, if things don't change I will cancel. I have not watched espn on tv for years and now instead of trying to navagate your 1980 style website I will look for another one. Your site was by far the best for football not it just sucks and is truly a waste of my time. This is sad and your site was a big part of my daily research. Why change something that was great into a pile of you know what.
I am so fed up with the Duke " lovefest" that has been continuous since the NCAA basketball tournament started. They have a great coach and a great program, but for goodness sake, stop the adulation, PLEASE! Do all announcers have to be from Duke to work for ESPN? Enough IS enough!
Watching opening night of 2015 baseball season on ESPN 2, and commentators are not even calling the game. They sound like they are sitting in a bar having a private conversation. Awful! the game!
ESPN2...softball game...does the person who runs the TV scoreboard even watch the softball game?...they are doing a terrible job...sometimes there is no scoreboard available...they are slow on pitch count...are often off on position of runners on base...and very slow even when they get it right...it is as if they are not even with the game...or don't care...
I didn't know ESPN was a bigoted network. I was watching Sportsnation and they were covering blooper and other humorous clips, when Michelle Beadle started to make fun of a red head, calling him Ginger like a player intentionally hated his teammate and through a pass off of his face. I would hate to see her say, chink, or N***** on national television and get away with it. She is instigating hate towards a specific group of people and finds it funny. I am disturbed when I see a network support hate so openly.
The new ESPN.com website does not support IE 11 which is the newest version.
This new website sucks. Like seriously. I love espn.com look at it multiple times daily but this new format makes me want too puke and ultimately not visit the cite at all. I'll just get my information from sportscenter. Please fix the site!
Your new website format sucks! I hate it and wish you would go back to the old version right away please.
I am very irritated about having a problem getting on the espn website. Since i have an older computer I am prompted about updating my browser. The computer cannot upgrade to a better browser. Since I am unable to update my browser I am unable to get on the regular espn website. I am redirected to a second rate espn website. If espn cannot let me on their regular website I will start using the yahoo sports website and quit watching espn tv.
NHRA is not on, suppossed to be on 2,00 pm like always never on time. If you don't want to show it, just say so, why NHRA even keeps crawling back to this crap is beyond me. And the nhra wants to know why there rating are down.
As a huge fan of Colin Cowherd and ESPN it was really shocking to hear his insensitive remarks regarding how he liked Oregon because it has white peoples . Then today it was even more insensitive to hear him say that people from Middle East flew planes into the building because they thought God wanted them to do so so they can't get the virgins they are promised . Not only is this insensitive to those who died because of terrorists but it's also inaccurate and not the . Islam isn't the only religion in the middle east , Judaism and Catholicism and Christianity both are in the Middle East and they don't believe that . Muslims don't believe that either . It's a lie and misconception that was put out there by uneducated people . Now the fact Colin used his platform on the radio on the radio to spread misconceptions and lies about Islam and people from the Middle East , people can believe and say well Colin said it .
Tournament center march madness. Technical glitch occurred, causing an inability to participate. There customer service is of no help. They refused to trouble shoot. They need to fix this issue or get a new system
I have paid $99 for cricket world cup 2015 live streaming to ESPN. Today is an important semi final match and ESPN site is throwing error wile streaming the game. Many times it is not even landing on the streaming page. This feels like a cheating on customer. They took the money but not giving the service. I don't even know how to get the money back.
I am really really offended about the comments that the racist steven a smith said about the eagles coach and the team about not being black enough. if that was said by a white reporter about a team not being white enough he would have his balls in a sling and probably fired I really think that espn is a spineless company and that racist smith should have been suspended if not fired he is a horrible reporter and I assume a worse person in real life I am disguted that he continues to be able to continue broadcasting espn grow some balls and take a stand raceisim goes both ways open your eyes and fire him
I would like to bring to someone's attention that I was very dissatisfied with Brent Mussberger calling Big XII basketball games. It was merely annoying when he editorialized what the coaches were thinking, saying or "wanting" from their players but his blatant favoritism towards Iowa State was unprofessional. I was dumbfounded that Brent and co. discussed the brackets and who would be playing Kentucky in the tournament instead of calling the Texas at KU game. Nothing was easy and automatic for the Kansas Jayhawks this year but the glee in Brent's voice when they were struggling was unmistakeable and he was disrespectful to their coach when he repeatedly referred to him as "Self". The fans of every team in the Big XII conference deserve better than they got this year from ESPN. Thank you for your time and attention to my concerns.
ESPN help me help your ratings, Bill Walton is a terrible commentator the other commentator has too carry the whole game, he talks about everything but the game and when he does he gets the players wrong he talks about when he played, instead of commentating the game in front of him,this proofs one thing, just because you played basketball doesn't mean you can become a commentator, Face it someone made a terrible mistake and us as fans of the game have to pay for it we are being torched by Bill Waltons dry commentating, Lord Help Us All Shame On ESPN.
Bill Walton as a color commentator does not stay with the game. Seriously, he is a big distraction from the basketball game for the Pac-12 championship!!!! Why on earth do you keep hiring him to do the color on Pac - 12 games? If you are contractually obligated to Bill Walton get him out of the Pac-12 so we can enjoy the games! Send him to the SEC awho cares about them!
Bill Walton is the worst announcer I have ever heard. His voice is annoying and all he talks about is himself. I don't think he knows a game is going on. After a few minutes I hit the mute button and watched the game. Please replace him.
I am very disturbed at the most recent comments by Keith Oberlman, towards PSU. He should be immediately terminated from his position at ESPN!
Dick Vitale was not on Duke vs Carolina game. Why not keep the game tradition of Mr. Vitale on this game. He is the best. A living legend. Like Dean Smith. We should celebrate these living legends while they are alive. Dickie V is my favorite. He is a class act not like these guys you put out there that go out and get drunk and solicit prostitutes on your time and smudge your name. Dickie V is old school. Why not let him call this game until he can not. What happenend to respect for those who earned and achieved. Who have aged with us. I have grown up listening to him over the last 45 years. Please. Give an old Italian man his due so when he dies he knows you value him. Don't wait until he goes and then say pretty meaningless words when you Allow others to disrespect him and take him off the game. He is still my favorite.
I was watching the NCAAB Wisconsin vs Marquette game on ESPN2 and your commentators made a very unprofessional comment. There was a foul called and fans were not happy and one of the commentators said something to the likes of The rich guys in the front row are complaining.
As a Marquette alumni, I resent the fact that they stereotyped Marquette fans as rich guys. We work hard to get where we are and show a lot of devotion to our basketball team and that comment was just offensive. Please be professional next time!
I am shocked!!!! That you had the nerve to fire Hank Jr. He is an institutation for, country music fans and Monday Night Football fans!!!! Does he not have the same rights as the rest of us...to say what he thinks. Yes he does have a flair for words!!!. But take a good look at Just how many ethics groups poke fun at us or just threaten. Us individually or as a nation...so are you saying that's OK for the all minorities to do?...get a grip ..we true Americans say just what we think.and we belive in our country...( get your heads out of the sand)and remember we are a great nation..where freedon of speech is our god given right!!!!
The Masters is the greatest sporting of the year to many fans. The coverage ESPN is providing is lackluster. The commentary is terrific but how to you only show Toger Woods shots from the 15th-18th? Fans should be able to see every shot the greatest golfer of all time makes for every round. Take some hints from the coverage of CBS, NBC, or ABC do for the other majors. You see every shot of all the big time players. This is disrespectful to all of us who love golf because your company is a powerhouse in sports coverage and we have no choice but to watch it. But for once show the actual tournament. The centimental, historical stuff is nice but we do not need two hours of coverage on it. I will appreciate any feedback on the reasons for the coverage. I am not in the television business and do not know the rating system, but I am sure you get great numbers for the Masters. Trust me its not because you do a great job, it's because we have no other choice to watch it elsewhere. Please show more golf, show every shot.
I do not appreciate the continued harassment of Tim Tebow by ESPN. I am a Saint fan and have no real connection other than the fact that I am a Christian and it appears that your network is trying to make fun of Tebow and his relationship with God. That is a freedom he has and I would hope that you could communicate to your sports announcers that they are not nearly as cute as they think they are. Knock his abilities and point out his flaws, but don't tie all that to his right to be a football player who has a relationship with God. Thank you for your time in this matter
This morning, 8/28, Colin Cowherd took my Lord's name in vain TWO times within one minute by swearing "Jesus" on his radio show in referring to the Stone article on Hernandez. This is inexcusable !!! Colin may not be a Christian but he has no business swearing on the air by profaning my Lord "Jesus".
You have taken every big bowl game off of regular television and left us with the crap bowls. Believe it or not there are some people in this country who cannot aford the cable companys outragis rates, but still love watching the bowl games on New Years Day. I guess that the mighty ESPN does not really care about things like that or about the people it hurts. I think that you should go back to the old system and give all of us the chance to watch the big bowl games, But I know that will never happen. All ESPN cares about is the BIG BUCKS, and they don't give a damn about the people who cant afford to pay for cable.
Watching ESPN on Saturday night around 9 and 10 pm you had a commercial about a dating site for farmers. I was very upset the way you portrayed the American farmer. You portrayed them as being as being ignorant. Farmers have the most important job in this country. If it wasn't for the farmer people wouldn't have food to eat. We should all be thankful for all the hard worker the farmer does. From the mother of an American farmer.
Your half coverage of the NHRA countdown race was interrupted by a nascar race,because of that I was not able to watch the NHRA race to the countdown because someones stupid decision to think that nascar race was more important then the scheduled program.With nascar you only need to watch the last 2 laps to see who takes someone out to win, thats why its lost its fan base. ESPN is getting worse at keeping programing on time. Why, I now need to add at least 30 to 60 mins of record time. Sorry to vent but I was looking forward to the nhra race,not every one is on your time frame.
I am writing to complain about the past two articles she has written. I have been a customer for many years and her past two articles were the worst I have read. The Ray Lewis article was in extremely poor taste. I decided not to complain even though I was miffed by the article . She painted him as criminal and didn't focus on his: what he means to the city, impact on the nfl charity work, or leadership in the Raven organization.
This past article where she claims ray Lewis's career is over and ravens shouldn't even go to Denver is plan stupid and the why I decided to complain. Twice blatant cheap shot articles, I am of course partial , however lines were crossed and or just dumb articles lacking in validity . I will no longer read her articles and ask ESPN to review these articles better as the last two were trash. Even Bronco fans in the posts thought article was horrid.
Rece Davis is constantly critical of Clemson football and I feel he lacks class when doing so. It is obvious he has a dislike for Clemson when he does their games and on the BCS final showing, he said their victories were "hollow" and later, they all praised Florida State which basically played the same schedule as Clemson. I am not saying Clemson is a great team, but I do think some commentators can do better than be classless in their comments. ESPN does have some commentators with class but a couple of them could use a session on learning to describe events without being disrespectful to a group of young men that are fighting with all their heart to win and sometimes make mistakes. Could you please tell me where Mr. Davis played his high level of football? I know where most of them played and their resumes but I cannot remember a Rece Davis being a great football player.
Homophobia is akin to anti-semitism? The Jewish community is well represented in Hollywood, the media etc. Yet to say such a thing is insulting. I think any peoples would find it such. It is more than insulting a non-blacks like Rick Riley to relate the homosexual movement to the Civil Rights movement!! At the very least due to his not being African American- he has no right to do so. I call for a public recant and apology for his blatant ignorance, and for the privileged arrogance of your employee Rick Riley and ESPN.
Was watching the Berwick rangers v Rangers game on sunday 24th of febuary on espn along with my grandchild and also a young member of my family . From the first minute off this game the chanting and singing from sections off the rangers fans was nothing short off disgraceful it got that bad that even espn commentatiors on more than one occassion had to opoligise about the chants. Ive already made complaint to rangers which no doubt will be swept under the carpet as it has been by most media ill be sending complaint to uefa and fifa as this was tottally over the top sectarian chantting . Now its down to you as the media and was on your football channel the match was on to at least make a statement condeminng these chants surley thats the least that yous can do. Ive supscribbed to espn for a while now and enjoy the sport on it surley you must see these actions off rangers fans as WRONG thanking you david weir
I have had enough of blow hard, publicity seeking, egomaniacs like merrill hodge! His outrageous comments about Tim Tebow and others reveals what a small minded person he is! I have just had it with preening, narcisstic, loud mouths that ESPN seems to admire! Hodge likes to be noticed. Well, I hope he gets noticed in the unemployment line! Get him and others like him off the air! His agenda is tiresome! Hodge is dispicable!
ESPN's decision to run chainsaw movie commercials during college football games is really sad, low and sickening. I have been up with one of our children for the past two nights with nightmares and I have had several discussions with friends that they have had similar issues from their children seeing this commercial. Aren't we supposed to be promotions sports and especially collegiate sports as something for our kids to aspire towards? There are lots of inappropriate commercials on lots of ESPN's programming but this one is inexcusable. Going on a campaign against your decision and writing a letter to our newspaper and liking all the Facebook comments I have already seen about this. So sad...
I am so disappointed that every bowl game on ESPN this year has not shown the marching band half time performances. They are an integral part of the college football experience and something I look forward to with each college football game. Each band has approx 200-300 students playing and thousands of fans and families hoping to see them play. I counted 29 commercials during the half time...disgusting! I'm thinking about cancelling my ESPN plan.
I noticed several months ago that if you go to the ESPN Dallas site and say anything bad about Mark Cuban or the Dallas Mavericks that the ESPN police/monitors immediately bash you and delete your posts. As a die hard Dallas Maverick fan, any time I or anyone else on the comments section said something about the Mavericks, our accounts were disabled.
I intentionally asked some negative questions about the Mavericks to make sure that it was not an aberration and sure enough, after about 4 posts, my account was disabled. There was no profanity in the posts, or anything that violated your rules of conduct. Several other people who commented mentioned that they noticed it before that the moderators would disabled any accounts that were negative to Mark Cuban or the Mavericks.
I have purchased an Insider account and I cannot even access those pages because I am not able to get into my account. I am also contacting an attorney and anyone else who will listen that your comments sections are only for positive comments about the teams. If that is so, you should market the site as an advertisement for the Dallas Mavericks instead of a comment section on their team. I
have bought many tickets to Maverick games in the last 10 years and I have a right to voice my opinion on them whether it's negative or positive.
I am a subsciber to ESPN mainly for the English Football and I want to complain about comments made by commentator John Champion in the Mansfield Town v Liverpool FA Cup Tie shown live on ESPN on Sunday 6th January 2012.
Luis Suarez scored the second goal for Liverpool under dubious circumstances as the ball hit his hand on its way into the net. When the replay was shown John Champion commented " THAT IS THE WORK OF A CHEAT "
As he is supposed to be an impartial football commentator I think his comment was absolutely discusting! Whether it was or wasnt a deliberate handball it is not for him to basically be judge and jury against Luis Suarez as the officials gave the goal.
Just because Luis Suarez has been in trouble in the past it certainaly doesnt give him the right to make comments like that and is just pure unprofessionalism and damn right slander.
I feel he should be made to apologise on air to Luis Suarez, Liverpool FC and their fans.
I hope you can give me your views on this complaint as I am seriously thinking of cancelling my subscription with ESPN.
Comment made by commentators "Fans deserve to see GOOD FOOTBALL on Monday night" should apologize to not only Seattle and it's fans but the Rams and their fans. There NOTHING wrong with last nights game as a matter it was well played. Badly officiated but well played. Then to follow it with "next weeks game will be GOOD football" insults ALL fans of the game and makes the commentators not only look foolish but show just how ignorant they truly are! It will be comments like this that will eventually make fans stop watching ESPN if they continue to carry Monday night football cause honestly unless your name is John Madden no one cares about your opinion!
I am on espn's web site at least an hour per day. I love to read what is on there and make comments at times. For some reason, I can't comment, like, flag or do anything. I've not been notified of a problem and I've sent numberous emails for help. No one will email back What's going on?
What is going on with your audio? Seems to be a problem as there is no audio at Wimbledon.
BRING NEIL AND STAN BACK TO DO SPORTS CENTER IN THE MORNING. THE PEOPLE THAT YOU HAVE USED IN THE INTERIM SINCE THEY WERE PUT ON LATE NIGHT HAVE MADE THE QUALITY OF YOUR SHOW STEADILY DECLINE.
I was trying to watch the world series of poker 2018 last night. the hands were shown in such a small format that it was very difficult to tell what the players had. and of course a person could not read the amount bet nor the percentage of the chance for the winners. in previous years all of this could be seen and understood with no problems. this made for very poor viewing. in the end I had to change channels to watch something else. the picture was great and it showed the players very well. if only I had been able to read the text,
i did notice that several of you other shows had gone with this small text but i cannot give you any names.
Your baseball coverage - particularly tonight’s Cubs/Dodgers game - relies more on stories by your commentators rather than coverage of the game. When you brought in your anchor Neil for additional color - inane conversation ensued rather than talking about the game. Your on air folks would do well to listen to games broadcast by Vin Scully or Bob Costas - pros who know how to convey the excitement inherent in the game
We look forward to watching Dodger games wheneve they are televised. But your announcers spend more time talking about everything except what's happening on the field. We can deal with that by just turning down the volumn but when the camera is on the announcers so much of the time while the game is on we don't get to see the game or hear what's happening. They just seem to really enjoy talking about themselves...what's their favorite beach, what time the got to the stadium when they were playing, a book one of them is/has written. Just keep the camera on the field and we'll be very happy.
The commentators for CWS need to realize there are 2 teams on the field!! All you hear is Oregon this and Oregon that. If they are fans then go to the stands and get people who will call the game as is!!!! It has been this way all the way through!!!!! At this level there is no room for mess like this!!!
ESPN announcers are suppose to announce, not tell stories from fifty years ago, tell jokes, and carry on. Please shut up and announce what Is going on on the field. I love watching baseball, especially the Cubs, and the last two games I have watched in LA, I couldn't believe the amount of talk that was not about the game. Try to get the announcers to quit talking so much and stay focused on the game.
Why does ESPN advertise for Cubs @ LA game and instead have college would series game o
This is only one example, but this happens all the time and is extremely embarrising and for loyal
fans ,they don't get their show.
I believe the people of Oregon deserve fair and impartial commentating for a change. We have never recieved before. It is embarrasing for you, because we are tired of you disrespecting our state. It is organized group of people that listen to the radio. Your constant attack on Luke is a effort by your business to hurt and take away his furture. You don't lnow what happened amy more than me. Many people have agreed to plea guilty even though they were in innocent. Your move to hire A-Rod shows you really don't care about right or wrong. Money, Money, Money. That is what your all about. Your morality is way below anything may have done. If he decides to take legal action against you, I will be a contributor.
Very disappointed that you played a phone sexy advertisement during a NCAA tournament game! Our family was watching our beloved OSU Beavers play and it was very inappropriate for my young children to see! Good grief they don’t even serve alcohol at these games because they are family friendly but you can play commercials like that!
ESPN needs to show more ACC teams in the first day of the College Baseball World Series on the East Coast. I as an ACC fan do not care about Texas A&M, San Diego state, Indiana, etc.
I do not understand why you would compare LeBron James to Michael Jordan. When all of your shows and correspondents make these comparisons it she that ESPN has no sense of history. Michael Jordon one 6 NBA championships with one team. LeBron has to go to another team - Miami to win. There is not comparison. How about Bill Russell that won 11?????? Kobe won 5. It is not that I love Michael Jordan. However, LeBron James should not be in the same discussion unless he get a few more rings which he never with Boston and Warriors in the way. You will see a decline once a team puts a body on him and starts to defend him like Indiana and Toronto did not.
Steven A Smith. Loud,egotistical,annoying and an insult to your fine programming.
I will really look forward to watching college gamely and getting fair treatment per
College Gameday analyst Lee Corso said wearing the Florida mascot head is his least favorite to wear on Gameday and that is not all, Lee Corso said he hates the Florida Gators as well.
“I hate the Florida Gators anyhow, being a Florida State man,” Lee Corso told AL.com’s Mark Heim in a recent interview. “I hate to put the Florida Gator head on. The Florida Gator head is long and funny looking. It scrapes my nose. Every time I put that thing on I get scraped and blood comes down my face.”
Watching via espn deportes.
They are calling Miami Tennis between "Isner" and "Juan Martin."
More than a bit biased. Of course their race hasn't had much to cheer about over their 500 year or so history, but gmab.
I am 70 years old a cubs fan live in chicago for 30 years now I live in Angola indiana 20 some hours from Miami and you guys block opening game in the areas
Apparently you have forgotten how to broadcast racing. I tune in to watch the f1 race and you have some other crap on. No wonder you lost NASCAR and I hope you lose f1 as soon as they wise up to your incompetence. Very disappointing and as much as I love racing I will turn your channel off and read about it the following day
Am I alone in my thinking? Is ESPN causing me such consternation that I see no alternative to find a true SPORTS CHANNEL on the air today other than Fox Sports?
Such ESPN sports personalities as “Stephen A”, Jamele Hill and Stephen Smith caused ESPN to change
Into a racist trash can! Doesn’t anyone else notice how Stephen A shows that big smile and refers to
Those black athletes as “Brothers” and seems to have a glow all over his face when he uses that word,
“Brother”? Doesn’t anyone else notice that those persons of the Caucasian decent are not given the same big smile by this racist so-called, “Personality”?
I, for one, feel quite strongly that ESPN is no longer a “sports network” but is more of a commentary on ethnic and social justice. I am fed up with the social slant to almost everything which espouses the hatred of those who would ridicule the politics of today’s most successful politicians in the USA today.
Ignoring the statistics which confirm that most people of color are living better that they have for decades proves that ESPN’s upper management is on a political vendetta to deceive the public and tell lies to those who KNOW BETTER that our country is on an upward trajectory and sports is all but second
To a political agenda which goes along with CNBC, CNN and NATIONAL PUBLIC RADIO!
Love for our country, love for our flag and love for the origins of the greatest country on earth is all but ignored by ESPN and its “social commentators”. These people are not putting sports above all else! They are under the impression that the present on-air agenda will simply continue for years to come.
I submit to you that this agenda by ESPN is about to end. Disney, the parent of this network is about to dump ESPN and in its present state, no prudent suitor will be found. Only those would continue such racist rhetoric would pay a dime for such hogwash.
Stephen A, Jamele Hill and Steven Smith all belong on the Black Entertainment Network not on ESPN a supposed sports network. I would even bet that these racists would fail even there!
As a true sports fan, I speak for myself. This racism must end. We, as a nation must stop watching this junk NOW. The airwaves were never created to allow just one side of every political issue, especially a supposed Sports Network. Keep politics out of sports!
I and millions of others will NOT pay the exorbitant prices at the game to watch spoiled athletes take
a stand against the very center of our Democracy, “The American Flag”!! If you hate America, simply LEAVE!!!! There is no place on this earth where you will be welcome if you show that you are against the very country in which you reside!!!!
Imagine if Jamele Hill had ridiculed John F Kennedy in the era of “what you can do for your country”?
Imagine if Steven Smith had denounced saluting the flag when Dwight D Eisenhower brought this country to victory against Adolph Hitler’s troops? ESPN wouldn’t exist for one minute after such anti-American criticisms. USA the greatest country in the world, LOVE IT OR LEAVE IT!
Watching Sports Nation today and you played Taps for a player making about $35,000,000 a year that got traded.
That's I really don't know how many worse that is then kneeling for the National Anthem. I guess I should thank you. I fine most of your program and host this year so bad I am watching less sports. Happy Sad
As a notre dame fan I find it incredible that ESPN chose to spend many minutes with the 3 broadcasters yakking among themselves and showing half screen of the game. The announcers did not even tell us what a whistle was for when one blew. DISGUSTING!!!!! This has happened before but now decided to say something about it.
Watching the Iowa vs Purdue game today on 1/20/18. Can’t stand to listen to Dan D. He never shuts up. The other announcer can’t call the play by play because Dan is still talking. He gets on a topic and 10 points later they get back to the game. So annoying. I listen to the game on the radio.
In your (ESPN's) coverage of the Australian Open, we are occasionally presented with split screen coverage of two matches in progress.
Not only does the immediately diminished screen size makes the match I was watching difficult to follow, but the sudden appearance of another match in progress is distracting, and has the effect of ruining the entire viewing experience for either match. Very annoying, and I usually end up "clicking" to some other (TV/cable) channel. If my experience is widely shared, doesn't the fewer the viewers mean the less you can charge for the advertising? Hmmm?
Been watching the Utah BYU broadcast. However had these complaints watching Walton on ESPN and PAC 12 broadcasts before. No one needs to hear a comment every second that’s available from a color man or an “analyst.” I have never heard so much garbage garnish from a broadcast team in my wife and I have lived a while. Walton was a great basketball player and has a great basketball mine but nothing is bigger than his mouth and his crazy rambling dialogue about Irrelevant babble. I have had to turn the sound off to her three times because of his rants. I don’t care what team he favors I care about the noise he is making basket to basket, change to change, and about people and things he’s learned about in the last week. “ I playing here 45 years ago.” Who gives a rats patootie it tarnishes the ESPN image and makes the whole ESPN experience non-worthwhile. You need to give it serious thought.
t6he pogram director should be shot.all the big college football games this weekend and your clown in argentinta has rugby on all day Saturday.all of south America does not have a rugby team,but argintina.by the way,i live in Bolivia AND NOT ONE PUBLIC TENNIS COURT. COUNTRY CLUBS ONLY,SO WHY PUMP TENNIS IN HERE.THIS JOKER IS PLAYING TO THE ELITE ONLY,NOT THE MASS.THERE IS A LARGE GROUP OF GRINGOS HERE THAT ARE STARTING TO COMPLAIN TO YOUR SPONSOR...GL.........ME
Just watched unc vs Arkansas. It was the poorest announced game I have ever witnessed. Bill Walton and other announcer continuously talked about anything but what was happening on the court. Worst yet was the split screen showing them frequently, reducing the game to half the screen while the two of them jabbered on incessantly about who knows what. Worst job announcing I have ever heard !!
I watched and listened to the PK80 tournament yesterday and today. Bill Walton has got to be one of the worst announcers I have ever heard. His comments are distracting and do little or nothing to color or illuminate any aspect of the game at hand. Had I not been interested in in watching Ark play OK and NC I would have changed channels.
Today your host of coast too coast...was inapporately dressed. Women at ESPN has worn attire that is not appropriate or professional. It might be "Eye Candy" for many but, in our time of sexual allegations, no one needes any inspiration to commit any type of sexual actions. One particular day your host wore a short dress and sat at a high desk/glass table, making her attire more attentive. It seems as though, there is competition from your females. Who can wear the shortest, tightes, and most revealing, sexual attire. I want the sporting news. Not some woman standing, legs wide apart, in a short dress. Save it for the club. And you wonder why men are accused for making sexual overtures to fellow employees. Here is an Idea....Uniforms..jackets and slacks/skirts/with appropriate length.
The announcers for the UCLA/USC game was so biased it was disgusting. Josh Rosen this, Josh Rosen that, Josh Rosen Josh Rosen. Really? He’s mediocre at best as is the whole UCLA team. Disgusting play calling. Can’t you find unbiased announcers?
Please tell the announcers on the coverage of the UNC-Pitt football game that the game is about the players on the field. Not a former player for Pitt, and certainly not about the announcers. I turned the sound off.
I see you've got Jamel back I guess I'm done with you all as long as she does not control her political views I will not be watching you anymore it's been many years that I've watched you guys it's pretty sad that I have two listen to her views thank you for all your old views new views are not appreciated I hope you last long but I don't think you will you killing yourselvesm
The statements made by Miss Hill about President Trump are totally out of line and ignorant. He is not a racist as Miss Hill suggests. First, you called me a racist because I have no respect for those athletes who will not stand for the national anthem and now you expect me to watch your network and listen to people like Miss Hill. I'm a Veteran and I sure its just a matter of time before ESPN comes after me.
I will not watch ESPN and I wish I could remove it from my TV package.
Richard J. Bukowski
I watch sports for a diversion and entertainment, not social comment. I start my day with Mike and Mike and end it with espn news. But I have a real problem. Ive been with espn for over 25 years. I block out the social comments for the most part, but will not support a bigot and racist, whether they be white or black, especially one that feels free to criticize me or my political beliefs.
She obviously thinks her understanding of this world follows her opinion. They don't.
I am now off of espn, not just because you employee a mouthy bigot and obvious racist, but when you could have corrected the problem, you covered and explained that she was talked to.
She should have been fired, told that pissing off 50% of your viewers and listeners was not her responsibility.
Concentrate on the escape and joy of sports and forget you social agenda.
Do that and I will be back.
A waste of time by a bunch of second guessers on all of your programs this week dealing with who will be the chosen four teams of the college playoff before the college football championship games this weekend. Face the fact that none of your football so called experts have a seat on the playoff selection committee and none of them know what will happen. You are wasting your time and what's more the time of your viewership by all of these different shows beating a dead horse fifty different ways. Get over yourselves and put something on in those time slots that are interesting. What a joke and waste of time.
The announcers for the Ark-LSU game on 11/12/16 completely forgot their responsibilities for the play by play during the second half of the game! They were more interested in bantering back and forth about how the final four teams would stack up with the day's wins and losses than doing their job and calling the game. It was disgusting! They must have thought they would use that time to "shoot a pilot" for a better job at ESPN --talking before, at halftime and after games like the "authorities" get to do...
Whatever! It was insulting to fans from both sides. Ask the LSU fans how they felt when one of their players went down, the trainers went out, and the ESPN guys did not even notice until the player was getting up. Your guys did not even call the player's name. They were too engrossed in the college playoff. They never missed a beat. Rude, rude, rude. This was the worst coverage I have ever heard. If you really care, just listen to the second half. All of it. It will make my point.
My husband and I are going to piggy back on the woman's comment we just read. Jon Gruden. We love football and watch every Thursday and all day Sunday, but we are considering giving up Monday night because we can't stand his constant babbling and talking just to hear himself talk. Please find someone else to narrate. We also have started watching with the TV muted in order to not hear all the ridiculous things he has to say, about every team and every player. He is either going on and on in praise of them or he is tearing down every step they make and have ever made.
Alabama game ruined by having 4 screens on. We don't want to see the staff sitting at desks making comments. We like the screen to be filled with the plays only, not chatter by individuals taking up half the screen. 30 people here watching the game. Poor choice to split up the screen. The football game is what we tune in to see.
I just got done watching the Tennessee v Texas A&M game. My wife and I are fans of Bama. Your announcers doing the Bama vs. Arkansas game should call a pop warner game. They in no way should be doing the #1 team in America. The telecast sounds as if they're in a phone booth. You should get a feeling they are at the game. Simply put, they have no sense of being in the game. The one announcer seems like he is the most boring person in the world. Give me a break. SEC football is the most watched football on TV and this is what you can find for announcers? Sorry ESPN, you need to go recruit some announcers that give insight and energy. Go listen to Vern and Gary.
I am never watching ESPN again due to political correctness and derogatory comments against police officers. I used to watch the channel for sports coverage, not political viewpoints. Was a big fan of PTI but the obvious disdain for police officers is a bit much for me.
After supporting ESPN and sports my entire life it is very disappointing for normal and USA values for a regular person/family, to be left with no choice but to remove those channels and future support. The Heineken commercial you allowed today is totally inappropriate, especially when a 10 year old is the one that came and brought the indecency of such commercial to her parents. It goes to show you what kind of respect and values ESPN actually stands behind. I guess it is true across the market and many viewers are starting to make more sense of why they would support such a station. Hope the college teams/universities accept the complaints and support the values of the people, not the minority.
I will never again watch ESPN, and have deleted your app from my smartphone. At tonight's 49er v. Rams game your cameras dwelled on the cowardly, ignorant punks unwilling to stand for our anthem. Clearly you support such anti-American behavior. I'm disgusted with you!
Will somebody at ESPN please tell all the black and white people that not standing for the national anthem and even debating it shows there ignorance. People died for this country so that people could have the right to say what they want.
Jason Goodall's character assassination of Daniel Evans during the match with Stan Warwinka was inappropriate. He should be ashamed of himself. he should be educated as to what can be legally said in the US. He could be sued for slander.
I'm discussed with the political correctness and pandering to Black Lives Matter supporters. Paul Fienbbaums original criticism of Colin Kaeprenick's actions was sincere, and justified. His retraction of those comments, and apology are no doubt the result of pressure from ESPN. Racism exists in this country, but the true division comes from radical black organizations like BLM.
After 20+ years, I'm pulling the plug on ESPN. It's unfortunate that we can't keep athletics above the politics. I'm watching just enough to determine your advertisers, because I'm boycotting them too. Your empire is crumbling around you! BLM won't save you.
Your Sunday night baseball trio couldn't be any worse. Fire them. Broadcasters should be more like radio broadcasters and talk about the game rather than themselves or yukking it up. Also, ESPN radio never, ever streams. It's a joke. Fix it or drop it. ESPN has become a joke.
Who are these people on your N.F.L. talk shows? Never heard of any of them. What happened to the sing retired ball players. Just like the baseball games you need former players. For Sunday Nite baseball how about Curt Shilling and Pete Rose, now that would be a real Dream Team.
Please Get rid of tennis commentators Chris Fowler and Chris Evert . Their tennis commentary has always been banal and boring. Their recent commentary of the exciting Wimbledon women's final was lackluster. Anyone with a modicum of tennis knowledge could do better.
Men's matches get exciting and sometimes controversial commentary by the McEnroes, Brad Gilbert, Lindsey Davenport and other retired players that delve into player's technique and playing style. Fowler and Evert comments about player's "tenseness" and desire to win is condescending and offensive. It feels as though commentary by Evert and Fowler was dumbed down. Women's tennis at the level of the Wimbledon final deserves the same quality coverage as the men receive.
Are women still fighting for recognition as athletes?
Your broadcast comes on the air @ 7 am. Here it is @7:30 and all I hear is 3 of your commentators pontificating about their worthless opinions. Can you please show some early round competition? Something tells me you really don't understand the tennis playing, past or present, viewer audience. 7:35am and McEnroe still yapping.
Here's the deal. First, I realize that no one will bother to read this email. I get that. Nobody at ESPN or seemingly anywhere else on the planet cares anymore. Nevertheless, I thought, just to make myself feel a little better, I'd send off this message. Your web site is just awful. It's just a mess with no apparent organization to it. I was looking for a way to contact somebody at Pardon the Interruption.
I wanted to tell them that I will no longer be a viewer. Tony Kornheiser has always been annoying. He's arrogant, thinks he's always right, and has always been rude and impolite. Lately I notice that something has changed. He's become a jerk. And I don't want to watch him on TV. I want to watch intelligent people discuss issues politely and in a civil manner. Please tell Kornheiser how I feel. Make sure you tell him the part about being an asshole. That's important.
When watching baseball, please inform all the announcers that I'm interested in the game - not their history, or guests that are interminably interviewed while play is going on, or what the Mexican League used to be compared to AAA baseball. For heaven's sake they should all take a course with Vin Scully as to what announcing a Baseball Game means. The latest is to film a kid in the crowd staring at the camera while the game is on and the announcers think it is the funniest thing they have seen. Then we get in on the latest birthday of one of the announcers with a dumb cake. Why do you need 4 people announcing the game. Let them all get jobs with Sports Center and get ONE "Vin Scully" type person to talk about the game. You have Baseball Today, and Sports Center for this kind of frivolous nonsense. I want to watch the GAME. Cut the BS to zero.
