    ESPN still has Euro 2016, I think - I really like Ian Darke too. Even though he's English, we can still claim him as our Martin Tyler, because he roots for the USA. Although nobody is better than Martin Tyler.

    Ugggh seriously Fox has the next two WCs?! I can't even stand their NFL coverage. I thought ESPN did a good job, especially getting former players for different sides to commentate in studio on matches.

    Guess it will be time to try to find a way to VPN BBC iPlayer then.

    sj, by 2018 you'll probably be able to tell your contact lens "turn on bbc" and you'll watch the game as you walk around without anyone knowing.

    I'll admit that this assessment is a bit biased, as I love baseball so much, but FOX's coverage of that sport is tolerable-to-good-to-very good; at least they get some thing right.

    I want nothing but good-to-great sports karma for Cleveland, but there's no defending that. :p

    Odd stat of the day - it has been 6:23 twenty times since LeBron James announced his signing with Cleveland. 6 was his number with the Heat, 23 with the Cavaliers. Twenty is the number of fingers, PLUS TOES Mr. James is rumored to have.

    Back to you, Bob.

    ESPN's sports business reporter Darren Rovell. Always overanxious to tell us all his opinions. Perhaps a bit too overanxious today.

    One of the headers on ESPN's side bar says "Kevin Love Triangle"

    As an appreciator of bad puns, I like it.

    I get what SAS is trying to say, but that is an awful way of putting it.

    Yeah, a lot of the ESPN guys stepped in it with regard to Ray Rice today.

    And Stephen A was just suspended for a week for the comments on Friday.

    You want a good look at America, go read the responses Beadle is getting on Twitter. I wish there was some way to arrest all of these people.

    After some of the responses to #Yesallwomen got on Twitter, I'm sadly, not surprised.

    UGH, ESPN is uttering the 'D' word (Dynasty) in regard to the Seahawks before the new NFL season even starts!

    I have liked First Take....when Woody Paige was on the show... I think Stephen A. and Skip try to make it a racists topic on how they batter back and forth just to get ratings and keep their crap ass show!!
