Funny thing is, I agree wholeheartedly with SI. But I'll probably watch ESPN tonight!

LOL

Even the guy who wrote the article for SI is going to watch it! LOL!

As I write this, there are still about 12 hours until this newest reality show hits the airwaves. Still time for 100 more crawls, 1,000 more educated projections, a million more tweets. I'll probably watch "The Decision," because, like so many others in my business, I am a prisoner of the process. I told my wife to buy the popcorn, and I'll bring the Pepto-Bismol.

Re: NBA Screwed?: James Leaning Towards Heat

Bill Simmons on ESPN is very critical of this whole hour long show and LeBron too.

I wouldn't say all of ESPN one way or another.

She says the father was a casual sex partner named Anthony McClelland, who by now is well-known within the state and county penal systems. He's been convicted of arson and theft, to name just two of his many transgressions, and he certainly wasn't the one to help Glo out of her monetary hardships.

So is Hulu going to show new episodes?

Hard Knocks - Full Episodes and Clips streaming online for free - Hulu


Each season is only 5 episodes???? IS that right?

ESPN didn't get to where it is currently at by airing TV which was not highly rated, got attention, etc. Although you and I probably share that opinion, I think many don't. I think younger generation especially. Not ESPN's fault, rather what society is interested in.
i can see broadcasting it live, for about 10 minutes or so. but an hour??? i just don't get it. he hasn't even won anything and he flat out quit on his team in the playoffs.

oh ok, I have seen most of KC and some 2nd Dallas. It is fun to go back and see past episodes and know how their season turns out.

I get that it's all about the dollars, but my god man. The amount of coverage is nauseating. "The Decision" brought to you Bing and University of Phoenix? Barf. It's NON STOP on ESPN. I know it's big news, but how many different ways can you break it down? Sheesh.

It was my understanding that Maverick Carter/Worldwide Wes & Co. contacted ESPN with the idea for the hour-long show, as long as they were able to sell the ad space.

You know LeBron is loving every minute.

Re: NBA Screwed?: James Leaning Towards Heat

Don't worry, Favre-fest is ready to fire up once Lebron's coverage dies down. Hope everyone is ready to see him tossing the ball around to high schoolers.

Wasn't he already throwing to high schoolers last week? I get the feeling the Favre-Fest 2010 version won't be like the past few seasons. He needed that ankle surgery to play this year went ahead and had it done, plus this year's Vikings team is as good as any team he's had his entire career. I think it's a forgone conclusion he's playing this year.
