    ESPN has turned into a joke...basically a BET Sports, with every other segment a race or other social justice sermon. Considering the ESPY Award ratings went from 7.7M in 2015 to 1.1M in 2021 shows how far things have cratered. As 2020 showed, without hyped live sports to prop it up, the network would be laying off even more staffers. The only thing worse (and more woke) is ESPN Radio.

      Each day I get further and further from ESPN and moving toward FOX sports. The brothers on ESPN campaigning for Cam in NE to start finally pulled the race card once they saw Matt Jones can play. So typical.

    I haven't watched ESPN in about 4 years and gave up sports completely last year. I occasionally like to search for tv ratings. I will say this. The only way to make any changes is for most of us to stop giving them ratings.

      Don't watch ESPN at all except when they actually have a game on that I'm interested in, and then I mute the sound so I'm not lectured to by their p.c. announcers. I also try to avoid buying any of their advertiser's products.

    Congrats, ESPN! I haven't watched you for a year. Thought I'd try again, and right away, I see the shows vaccine-shaming Aaron Rodgers and going on a diatribe about their political beliefs. Goodbye, forever.

    I stopped watching ESPN years ago cuz they are a racist network that won't say anything about white players but will talk about black players all day everyday.matt Patricia got indicted for rape in college ESPN didn't say shit while he coached the lions but could bring up kobe and Colorado the day after he died.peyton Manning put his nuts on his female trainer face ESPN didn't say anything.barely talked about big ben haven't brung it up since.

    I will watch ESPN games or other sports events but not many live sports talk shows anymore due to too many politically-based topics. I do like PTI, Undisputed, Inside the NBA (w/the two kings of trash talk), and KJM. I stopped watching & listening to Steven A last year. I think he became a media Diva before Aron Rogers did by his frequent shaming-dissing many radio callers or his co-hosts. I could see the tension on First Take in 2019 and knew a divorce with Max was coming.

    Why do SOME folk come on here with the BET remarks, Liberal remarks, and or other hints at it being too black? I do not like ESPN because Stephen A. and other top shows suck. Has nothing to do with race, religion, or politics. Those are all excuses to be racist.

      I agree there. Steven is just kind of a jerk it has nothing to do with race or anything no need for the other remarks.
