    I would like to make a bold claim.

    And call this the stupidest idea ESPN has ever put forth.

    Does David Villa - yes, that David Villa Winner of Copa del Rey, La Liga, UEFA Champions League, UEFA European Championships, FIFA World Cup and much more. That David Villa - does he need an MLS Cup to "cement his legacy"?

    Maybe now some of the more talented people that were fired will be rehired?

    Crazy to think we lost Stuart Scott three years ago, today.



    I also lost one of my best friends on this day 11 years ago to a car accident. One of the best sports minds I ever knew. Crazy what memories can do to you.

    Always enjoy the ESPN Voices portion of the National Championship game Megacast; what a beautiful, chaotic mess.

    Should be noted (for those who choose to read the link rather than the article) that it's not Jemele Hill herself that is making the accusation, but rather a former ESPN legal analyst who's filed a lawsuit against ESPN.

    @Juliet316

    Not that surprised. Nothing against Michael or Jemele but I never felt like they fit the Sportscenter format especially the primetime spot right after PTI. They are more suited for opiniated shows like “Stats Don’t Lie” which I enjoyed them both on.

    @Guidman

    Total new booth then come the fall since obviously Gruden is gone too. And with Mike Treico now on NBC they really do not have a ton of in-house candidates.

    They should have never cancelled His and Hers just to put them on SportsCenter. I think a lot of what worked on that show got lost when they transitioned to SportCenter.

    the 6:00 sportscenter is just repetition of the 9 hours of equally repetitive programming the precedes it. i wish whoever is watching it would stop so espn would be forced to try something different.

    ESPN+ rolls out today - 30 day free trial is available, then $4.99/mo after that.

    Gonna give it a shot - expectations are not too high from what they're advertising, but that's a generous trial period. If anyone else rolls with it, let me know what you think.

    I'm going to hold on giving it a shot until the Roku support comes. Anyone who had been paying for MLS live and still wants that service gets that with ESPN+ for a lower cost, plus everything else ESPN+ offers. Trying to find information about what baseball games will be included, and can't quite get that information.

    Yes. But subject to local blackout rules. In other words. Yes for me, but not for you.
