Really Mark? PTI is the only thing I watch on ESPN beside games or the 30 for 30 specials. The network has turned into complete garbage, and First Take is a class A offender.

PTI, Around the Horn, First Take, all a bunch of know nothing blowhards acting like they are god's gift.  ESPN had a big part in ruining Texas Tech and for that reason alone I will never watch their garbage apart from actual live sports.

no sportsnations mention through 10 post,surprised. I think sportsnation is great its funny its interactive with fans the countdowns shows are great and they have the two hottest girls on ESPN rotate spots and wear short dresses. Love that show. Their documentary shows are good too.

Besides the actual games, the ONLY good shows on ESPN are 30 for 30 and Outside the Lines.  PTI is a fun show to watch too because they don't take themselves too seriously.

The "Expert Analysts" suck and don't provide any better breakdowns or predictions of games than you can get around covers.

Everything else sucks including SportsCenter.  You can get scores and better game highlights anytime online.  You can get "breaking news" from twitter.

According to Amy Lawrence yesterday the NFL "drives the bus" at ESPN. What else do you need to know? As for Cowherd, I am surprised at how much he knows (and doesn't know), even though he did not learn it until after his Vegas days. He was pretty small potatoes there. His Vegas days did teach him how much attention a radio host can garner by speaking openly about gambling and the NFL's hypocrisy regarding it.

Pretty much in a nutshell. I watch either MLB network, NFL network or NBA TV to get my highlights. 

ESPN just sucks anymore and its sad sense back in the day it was great to watch. I used to love watching SC with the old crews (Olberman, Mayne, Patrick, Kilborn). It's almost like Saturday Night Live. Just horrible.

PTI (basically Michael Wilbon) is starting to say how he feels and I've always liked that show because it gives you more than just basic sports stories.

First Take is the best.    Love Skip and Stephen A.  Too bad Crawford went to Sportscenter.

I love Highly Questionable. Not for Dan Lebetard (sp?), but for his dad. He makes that show.

Other than that...I won't watch ESPN unless a game is on or, in an instance like the Heat winning the Championship, I'll tune into First Take to see Skip get eaten alive. Like Mark Cuban did to him.

I really didn't think that Mark Cuban ate Skip alive, actually I thought Skip set him up to make him look much sillier than he did. Cuban kind of dropped the ball on eating his lunch like he planned to do when he came on the show. He had several chances to make better points, but he wasn't very fluent, or articulate as you would expect from such a public owner. Of course that's just my opinion.

How can one love Skip and Stephen A?  The two biggest idiots at ESPN.  Honestly answer me this.  Skip is a charlatan and Stephen A tries to be like Jime Rome (Who I also dislike) and raise his voice because he thinks talking at a higher volume makes him sound intelligent.
