    It becomes ESPN on ABC.

    I'm a traditionalist usually, but I actually don't have much problem with this. ESPN is the stronger brand name. The are just leveraging it. Makes sense to me.

    Not a big deal. Just a name change.

    I agree with Poindexter. This is a joke.

    So much for tradition.

    Wasn't this thread about Mike Tirico, a Fruit Rollup, a bottle of KY and a retarded male monkey?

    And what's it been since Cap Cities merged ABC Sports with its cable property a couple of decades ago? Heck, at one point the ABC Sports logo was made the same size and shape as the oval ESPN/ESPN2 logos so the two could use the same basic graphics set.
