    ESPN is just horrible even though I like Reiss and Bruschi, clearly the management of espn will burn in the lowest level of hell.

    I figured ESPN should have been blasted for their 24x7 Lewinsky of Brett Favre over the past 15 years.

    Now ESPN is calling the grieving Favre's 5 touchdown game against a 4-12 Raiders team the best performance in the past 25 years.

    The game ended 41-7..... Not exactly a close game.
    This is not even close to the best performance of the past 25 years in my eyes..... So his father died that day..... Most people lose their parents at some point....

    I have a lot more respect for Matt Bryant who played after the death of his 3 month old son. He kicked 3 field goals to give the Bucs a 30-21 victory.

    There's a pretty valid reason that New Englanders refer to them as FESPN.

    Their shtick has gotten old and really needs to be retired. It's embarrassing in it's predictability, and it's patronizing treatment of it's viewers.

    I stopped watching ESPN after their tainted coverage of spygate, and haven't seen a second of it since. Dont think I'm missing a thing. I don't have cable now, so I don't even watch MNF (unless Pats are on, but thats local broadcast).

    If anything happened to Brett Favre, everybody at espn would wear black arm bands and if anything happened to little bret, they'd wear little black rings on their pinky fingers.

    Terrible article. If that's the best Mushnik has nowadays, it's time for him to retire.

    NFL Network, MLB Network, etc.

    I don't watch any BSPN studio shows, just live sports. Their 30 for 30 series was great, though. If I want specific highlights, I can get them on the internet pretty easily.


    For me, a UConn alum, they also have bashed the basketball program pretty good. After Spygate, I was frustrated but would watch Sportscenter-U on ESPNU, after the UConn stuff, I was done for good.

    NFLN or online. The only time I will turn on to FESPN is when they are showing the Patriots play live. Otherwise, they ain't getting a minute of my viewing time. Gameday I will watch Fox and/or CBS, and also check in on PatsFans for the latest updates.

    To be honest, you can get a LOT of great Pats news between their official site, and the daily news summaries that Ian posts here.

    There's nothing wrong with ESPN that's not a problem with just about every other media outlet in the country. Watch what you wish. ESPN has some good on-air talent.

    ESPN is the lazy sports fans way to get their sports fix ... it's entertainment of some sort - not a sort that I prefer and I do not watch unless it's a game or I will watch their news channel where you get the post game interviews.

    My pleasure. And just remember that some of the same people who bash ESPN spend their radio time listening to 98.5, who are far more "anti-Patriots" (at least from 2-6) than ESPN is, even though that station carries the games locally.

    If you have iTunes, both WEEI and 98.5 are available. Also, the radio.com and Yahoo Radio apps both carry 98.5. WEEI has their own app with available streaming.

    Weei online radio player:

    WEEI - 850AM

    98.5 online radio player:

    Radio.com

    WFAN online radio player, for when WEEI and 98.5 are both sucking (which happens quite a bit, unfortunately, and more since WEEI stupidly changed its lineup). It's NY radio, but you can sometimes hear good sports talk and good interviews:

    Pretty ****ty of ESPN to sell on the tragedy (tying in a tornado with Alabama/Auburn) but the Mickey Mouse Network is far from the only one that capitalizes on tragedy in the media these days. FOX milks the hell out of human interest stories during sports events.

    You got my vote for post of the year.

    Watching (blank) on tv is the lazy man's way to get their fix of (insert previous blank) might be the smartest thing I have ever heard.

    Some of you sound like ESPN raped your children or something.

    I never watch the channels outside of MNF or another sporting event that they happen to televise. I don't feel like I'm missing anything, nor does anything 'they' say bother me... because I don't watch it.

    No one is forcing you to.
