    Now I give Adam Schefter his props, he has great sources. The issue to me is whether or not all those sources who OWN the NFLN will help him anymore?

    I know that this isn't print, but it is sports journalism and I am hearing that he will also write for the four letter .com
     
  2. Adam's sources won't dry up.

    Agreed. He had lots of sources before he went to NFLN.

    How is that hiring freeze working out, ESPN? Tired of getting unsolicited resumes, were we?

    Does this mean they're less than pleased with Chris Mortensen?

    The next "battle in the trenches" we see won't be along the line of scrimmage, it'll be between Schefter, Mort, and Clayton for airtime.
     
  7. That's probably the nicest way to put it.

    Clearly, they're going to put his feet to the fire . . . which will be good for the viewer . . . and, hopefully, for Mort.

    I am shocked to learn that NESN has upgraded its NFL coverage this way.






























    :D

    If you ask me, and nobody did, NFL Network is well on its way to becoming an embarrassing fiasco. The product sucks, they've managed to not get it seen by much of the northeast while they joust with Comcast (whether that's really their fault or Comcast's is kind of beside the point.) They've managed to muck up NFL Films, which everyone agreed was doing a great job before falling under the control of these geniuses. Now NFLN's most credible presence is leaving. Hmmm.

    Their premier sunday night highlight show is still in low def.

    Low def = low rent

    Compare to MLB Network
