Takes only five words: College Football Playoff Selection Show. Are they kidding us? FOUR hours worth. :roll: There are 4 teams folks. Do they really think that much time is needed to announce the selections and discuss them?! Get real. The best decision I made to not watch ANY more college football past the 0:00 time remaining in the 4th quarter of the Tulane vs SMU game last weekend was a good one. Why bother since I don't really care who was involved in any "rivalry games", conference championship games, any bowl games or playoff scenario.

Fan since '54

ESPN announced another batch of layoffs last week yet they fill half the day with experts and analysis when they could be showing, oh, I don't know, sports?

Nero fiddles on.

Needs more SUMO WRESTLING. (I am completely serious)

And arena football.

But your point is still entirely valid, even though ESPN has made it clear they aren't listening.

I used to love Australian Rules Football, especially after I attended a match In Melbourne, Aus. Pretty kick butt.

Another example of their demise - Mike and Mike. Granted, even I felt it getting a bit stale, but still the better of the sports talking head shows to listen to.

They broke them up to create 2 diluted products someone competing with each over.

I think those come on still, just in the middle of the night. I was watching them when the baby wouldn't sleep through the night.

FS1 appears to have the rights to it.
