Good Read on the fall of Baseball Tonight (and overall on the WWL)

    I was just thinking a bit ago how BBTN was so much better, because they had enough time to talk about the sport. Cramming a full schedule's worth of highlights and analysis in 20 minutes is absolute bullshit. Use ESPN 2 or the fucking Ocho or whatever for the full hour it used to have. And just let Karl Ravech, who is a fucking pro and a half, do his thing. Make sure Orel Hershiser is there next to him, because he's a fabulous analyst. I don't mind Kruk and Steve Phillips is a fucking nitwit. But just give me the fucking hour back.

    I wish Ravech, Kruk and Hershiser were on every show.

    The sad thing is that Baseball Tonight is the best thing on that network right now.

    Are they done talking about the Yankees yet?

    I agree. As I was watching BBTN tonight - sandwiched between the NBA Shootaround and NFL Live - I found that blog entry. As BBTN gave way to NFL Live, I had to question why we are subject to 20 minutes of NFL coverage, when there's nothing going on in "the league" aside from the usual suspect behavior of its felons (or players, whichever you prefer)?

    I can agree with a 30/30 split on BBTN and the NBA, given the time of year; but why the hell do we need NFL Live (Which is also on every day this week at 4 PM EDT) at the end of May?! If ESPN is trying to compete with the NFL Network, its going to take a lot more than 50 minutes of specialized programming a day.

    Because both Paul Tagliabue & ESPN made the idiot masses think they need to hear about football all year 'round.
  11. Hate to say it, but that happened 30 years ago.

    The thing with BBTN is most of what the panel is saying is BS. Unless you're close to a team, you don't realize that. Any time talk about the team I cover, they're usually way off base, and I can only guess it's like that when they talk about other teams, too.
