I have been watching the IU vs St John's basketball game from Maui, the commentating is terrible, Jim is talking about his personal life instead of the game, he has given me a headache. He can talk about his bike riding and swimming with turtles and back surgery at the bar. Give us a break we want to watch the game.
Bill Walton calling this ball game at the Maui Invitational. He is really being RUDE to the guy that he is working with, calling this game. I thought that all the people calling the game are supposed to be impartial. He is so anti Indiana about this and really calling for an IU loss. I am ready to shut off the volume on the tv and listen to this on the radio. His voice is making my skin crawl.
I have 2 complaints with ESPN. I've been watching ESPN since middle school in 1992. I'm a huge fan. First, why is Dan Le Batard filling Collin Cowherd's previous time slot. I'm sure it's to try and reach out to the young, slacker generation, but it looks and feels like the sports version of the Howard Stern show. The content is gimmicky and immature. Second, and more importantly, I feel that ESPN has made a shift from pure sports coverage to sensational journalism.
I realize the need to compete with a plethora of suto journalistic programs, but a large portion of your base only cares about sports. You can leave all the theatrical stuff on gay marriage, dying children, wife beating athletes, and towns impacted by natural disasters to other stations. I tune into ESPN as a break from TMZ, 20/20, and CNN for a break from the strange reality of life. Thanks for your time. Please consider my recommendations.
Every time Arkansas plays on ESPN it's as if Arkansas isn't even there. The announcers spend the majority of their time talking about the opposing team, irregardless if Arkansas is winning or losing. It's getting to the point that I almost don't watch the game, even being a die-hard fan. Try giving us a break why don't you? Very unprofessional announcing.
The announcers for the BSU vs New Mexico game on ESPN U on Sat. Nov. 14, 2015, was an agonizing experience. I understand that these announcers are either the bottom of the barrel, or young guys trying to make a name for themselves, but... Bad is bad. What twiddly dumb and twiddly dumber are not smart enough to figure out is that most games on ESPN U are not the BCS top 25 teams. Fans specifically chose that game to watch. Fans of both teams. I get it.... Everyone loves an under dog. However, isn't it the job of the announcer to be impartial? You might be thinking, Sour Grapes? Maybe a bit.... These announcers wanted a good game so bad, that they were blatantly rooting for New Mexico. Therefore, making it even a more difficult experience for a BSU fan. I don't live in Idaho and depend on your station to be able to follow my college. I will not sit thru another game listening to these two announcers. I can turn off the sound and get the game on the radio.
Bill Walton is terrible. I'm trying to watch the Texas v Washington basketball game, but commentary is making it a miserable experience. Questioning how to pronounce a high school of one of the players? Remembering when Wilt scored 59 in his first game? Who cares. If he is the best play by play you can find, I won't be watching much basketball on ESPN.
ESPN's customer feedback form won't process to submission after i go to all the trouble of filling it out because the webpage thinks I'm a bot. How can a bot fill out all the necessary information on all the lines ESPN requires? That is absurd nonsense. I think EPSN just doesn't want to have to read people's emails. Especially considering my emails on other websites aren't denied for any reasons much less because they think I'm a bot. They also have my email address to which they send emails of their own _and I belong to EPSN's websites. I'd call them but I don't want to say something I'll regret. Well, maybe I wouldn't regret it but I still don't want to call them.
I watch the Sunday sow of Top 25 Ratings every week and every week your analysts get worse, if that is even possible. Mark May and Heather Dinich are the most biased analysts I have ever heard. This morning was the worse show I ever listened to, if that U.S. even possible. There is no professionalism from these two at all. Heather is bad enough, but, Mark Msy us the worse. I don't care that they don't like Ohio State, that U.S. there prerogative, but when he reprimands the football team the way he did this morning, it is downright disgustingly rude. That was the worse thing I ever heard an analyst do. It wasn't bad enough he and Heather made a remark about giving Ohio State a bone by putting them in the Top a Four, but,what he said to those kids at the end of the show was crossing the line. They actually degrade the quality of your show. Oh, Go Bucks!
I walked in on the last few mins. Of the fourth quarter of the Florida-Vanderbilt game that my husband had on. There was a woman commentator for the game. If I had to listen to her for a whole game off it would go. Her voice was very nerve wracking. Send her back to the office and let the men do their job. This is carrying political correctness to far. She is a woman trying to do a mans job. Not very good either.
The woman announcer on today's Florida vs. Vanderbilt game has the most horrible and annoying voice I've ever heard on ESPN Broadcasting. Get rid of her! She is not suited for football game announcing. I am going to mute it and put on 930am and listen to game.
Heather Dinich is the most unprofessional and completely Bias writer against Alabama, why im not sure , Alabama has done nothing to her, she simply has no clue about college football obviously. I am extremely dissappointed in her obvious dislike for a single team like that, where did the professionalism go, the knowledge of what she is talking about was obviously never there. She gives ESPN a very bad name in her unprofessionalism.
The commentators and production for the UNC vs. Pittsburgh football game which was broadcast on oct 30 were horrible numerous times they called unc players the wrong names. His name is Elijah Hood not Wood. Too much talkabout #23 for Pitt and no respect for the team that won. Yikes ESPN time to step your game up or more employee complaints are coming.
I have been an ESPN viewer from your beginning. Start my day with MIke and Mike. My car radio stays on ESPN network 60 percent of the time. I am a veteran. A tea party patriot. How can you let Tony Kornheiser get away with comparing me and my family and millions of Americans to ISIS? He needs to keep his leftist hate-mongering to himself. Shame on him! Shame on ESPN for letting him continue to represent the greatest sports network in the world.
I was expecting to watch the Washington Huskies play the Stanford Cardinal at 7:30pm PDT and the stupid Texas A&M vs Mississippi game was still going on. They said something about the Husky game would come on ESPN News channel until the other game got over and then they would switch back over to ESPN.. First of all I have never heard of ESPN News and have no idea of what channel it is on or if we even get it. Why not do like the pro games do on CBS or FOX when an earlier game runs long they switch the game over to the markets that these two schools would be interested in watching. It is now 7:50pm and I am not going to watch the game even if that other is over since I have already missed quite a bit. If you are planning on stacking several games in a row on why don't you allow for more time in between as this really pisses me off. It happened to one of the Husky games that you sadly were going to broadcast but at least there was no game on ESPN 2 and used that to start the game until the other game got over. That is the next channel higher so I knew where that was at and didn't mind but I have no idea were your news channel is at or if our cable company where I live even has it. I wish you would stop broadcasting Pac 12 games as they evidently are not as important as the SEC games or probably any games west of the Mississippi River. Thanks for nothing.
I watched a few seconds of your Ray Lewis book promo show , and or interviews on sports center and multiple other shows. Did you also show the persons and family of the victims of Ray Lewis and his friends assault on them ??? You did a book promo of an athlete who could buy his way out of prison as an athlete... then did a promo on his book? Wow...the hardships this poor man went through having to prove himself not guilty....or his money to buy lawyers and or the price that this poor man had to pay to quite the people that he and his friends hurt. Just sad that you judge NFL players like Greg Hardy. but he only bought his way out of prison.....aka Ray Lewis ...yet you just don't care.
I will never watch your Sunday morning pre-game because he is on it , but you just don't seem to understand that free by money does not count as not guilty....Last off.....this idiot made mention that he is 5 inches taller than the average man ...thus he has no need to fight them and you idiots aired that? I am bigger than the average man ....but in a bar environment guys still try to act tough and mess with me....difference is. I don't have a dozen followers by my side to play tough. I have called a friend or bouncer to aid me against a drunk tough guy and his friends...but no one got shot. Why is it that fame is so much more important to ESPN than class.
It was not an enjoyable evening watching ESPN2 last evening. Beth Mowins is not a top notch announcer. She come across as a woman wanting to sound like a man. I am a TCU fan and wanted to watch the game but it was hard to do with her voice.
Tonight's TV game with TCU no, 3 in the nation and you assign 3rd. rate announcers for coverage. The female announcer is terrible also uses very poor grammar. Very disappointed in the coverage. Will turn the sound down and tune to radio instead of listening to ESPN.
I am trying to watch ESPN2 and the TCU vs Iowa St game. Why do we have a second rate announcer? Beth Mowins voice sounds like she is trying to be a man. She is really not a first rate announcer and it is difficult to listen to her. Sure do hope that if TCU is on ESPN in the future, we do not have Beth as one of the announcers.
Not only did you no switch over to the gator game when it started, because that is understandable, but you waited too freaking long after the game ended to switch over to the gator lsu game. No one cares about the Michigan st game. We all know they don't have a chance because hey play nobody. The lsu gator game was the most important (Alabama A&m was a close second) and you disappointed millions of people by not showing Florida's touchdown. If you are going to show the game on a different channel, show it on one that everybody has. Not ESPN news!!! Very disappointed.
I agree with removing Colin Cowherd from the radio because he sounded like a sexist pig who regularly denigrated women. But at least he discussed sports some of the time. I wish you would remove Stu Gotts (spelling ?) and his cronies from the air...they don't often talk about sports, they don't know what they are talking about and it is just a lot of blather! They think what is said is funny, but it isn't. I tune in to espn to listen to intelligent sports talk and this does not make the grade.
ESPN cut off the last minute of Saturdays Iowa Illinois football game and went to paid programming. Even pro games are allowed to run overtime into the next time period! Unacceptable for a regular and loyal ESPN viewer.
Thanks for the great Utah/Cal college football Game-Day opportunity here in SLC today. That was very well done and enjoyable. But I do have a complaint about Brian Griese. I just finished watching the Utah/Cal game this evening and had to endure 3 hours of Brian Griese drool over Jared Goff the entire time. Your cameramen were in cahoots by spending most of the camera time on Goff. Even when when Utah was on offense you showed Goff the entire time, talking about him etc., until an actual play started. Then as soon as the play completed the shot went right back to Goff to stay another 20-30 seconds nonstop until a play resumed on the field. In my opinion, this was so biased that it became deplorable and irritating to watch.
Seriously, it makes me not want to support ESPN in watching any of your sporting events. I will watch when Utah is on but that is because I have to. Why can't Brian Griese be more neutral? Why can't the camera shots stay more on the Utah players and their side of the field when they made great plays. After a great Utah play, they would ever so briefly show Utah and then get right back to Goff. It is not just biased coverage, it is extremely poor coverage. If Griese was not going on and on about a great Goff play, then he went on and on about his bad decision and constantly made excuses for him and of course the cameraman was zeroed in on Goff for as long as possible.
It was truly bothersome, frustrating and nauseating for me, as a Utah fan to watch, and Utah won, Utah was the #5 team in the country not Cal, the Utah defense was outstanding, 5 pics and the pressure on Goff went on all game long. But we had to endure Griese for 3 hours - very very poor color commentator. ESPN management should have a serious sit-down discussion about how he comes across when he comments so one sided like that. I get it, Griese is a former quarterback and will naturally lean to towards favoring a great QB like Goff, but he went overboard and so did your cameramen. Does anyone on the ESPN side see this?
I am playing College Pick Em. Today my pick for 10 points was Boise State. In the final results you said I had picked Colorado State and I got a loss for the 10 points. I live in Colorado and never would I have picked Colo. St. I know I picked Boise. Please check back & correct this. If you want customers to play a game online you need to make that game better.
Your web site (ESPN.com) has become so dysfunctional that I can't even get scores for today's football games. Since the site was dramatically changed, I have found it extremely difficult to use the site. I have always relied on ESPN.com for sports scores, game cast and news. Since the change it takes forever to load scores (and I am using high speed internet in my home) and sometimes the golf leader board information wasn't even available and the college football rankings are always slow to be posted when other sites have them as soon as they are available.....today I literally could not pull up current scores for college football....took up to 10 minutes for the screen to refresh while other sites come up instantly ...it is not my device nor my internet slowing things down. The current web site is just too frustrating for me to use. I have had to find alternative sites to use, really wish someone would find a way to make this site once again the reliable excellent source for sports information that it once was. Truly sad to see such a decline in service.
We own an android box and have shown over the course of the last few NHRA_Drag Racing Live TV events that we have not been able to get into the feed or links have fowled up with my Internet provider and they say if its showing being aired it should be on no issues or problems unless its network or weather related. We are big time Drag racers and live in Ontario Canada and are unfortunately are unable to travel to the USA for these events in person so watching live on TV is our only option.
Just wondered what is going on I know that you are losing the contract at the end of this season but don't think its fair for your customers to be treated with such little regard and disrespect when its posted. Your live broadcasts that we have been able to get have also been terrible as well the Cameraman and announcers have been cutting out the programming and the talking as well. So if there is anything you can do to fix this for us we would be internally gratefully. So we can continue on to having the experience we have had originally enjoyed previously to all these issues. Sincerely yours Patricia Lyons- One Of your Biggest Canadian Fans.
In 2015 fantasy rugby world cup my team Boklash scored points from 3 springbok players in the match against the USA on 6th Oct 2015. Bryan Havana played a full match and scored 3 tries but you only awarded him 3 points. I thought that the time that you had not yet updated the results and would complete it later. But later on when I tried to enter my account, I couldn't. I have tried other devices as well as the library computers and still I can't manage to access my ESPN fantasy rugby account. I can access other sites like this one but not the rugby one. So I ask that you fix this problem by unblocking my access and award my player Bryan Havana the points he earned.
If you think your viewers are stupid enough to think when you cut away from the Clemson game Saturday night you need to think again, we know as soon as you heard the Clemson Coach use the NAME GOD you cut away and let me assure you that the game sponsors on ESPN will hear from the public.
Steve Levy can't get names of the players right. Calling Desmond King - Derrick? Also has called them the "Hawkeyes" the "Buckeyes" early in the game. THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE FROM A SO CALLED PROFESSIONAL. Then again, I guess since we're not in the SEC with your nose up our ass, this is what we get.
Please muzzle Keith Olbermann. His political views keep surfacing. You reprimanded Schilling for his conservative views but repeatedly overlook Olbermann's liberal stance. How about we stick to sports in an atmosphere free of personal views. After all, isn't objectivity the benchmark of good journalism? Thanks for listening.
The play-by-play announcer for the Cleveland/Oakland football game is so bias for the Oakland team that the viewers are not getting a true play by play analysis. Who does this guy think he is? He's terrible! I have finally turned the sound off so I don't have to listen to his terrible one- sided abnausium dribble. Please do your listeners a favor, get rid of this guy.
Watching SEC football with my family. I have a young son and daughter, 8 and 3. The viagra commercial comes on talking about the obvious erectile dysfunction. Now I don't have a problem with the commercial but I do have a problem with having to explain to my young daughter what an erections is. Why do you have to air this during family times? A little distasteful.
I'm a big fan of First Take and I love Steve and Skip, but the new host is terrible. Bring back Carrie, Jameile, or get a new host please.
As a regular listener of ESPN Radio, I'd like to comment about the La Batard and Stugotz radio show, Mike Ryan is the Executive Producer. The name or term "Stugotz" is Italian-American slang for F- - k-it. Now I'm not offended because it's part of my regular vernacular, but there must be lots of other listeners who get it, and may or may not be offended. What's his real name anyway?
I have tried to watch the WKU and Indiana football game but I changed channels a half time because I couldn't stand the announcer that was doing the color for the game. He talked all the time. He said the same thing several times and had stupid predictions. Doesn't he get training that less is more. Take an example from John Madden or more recently Chris Colinsworth.
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.
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!!
Have feedback for ESPN?
Thanks for your feedback!
Sorry. Please try again later!
