    I was going to make a crack about the Indians GM.

    But the guy behind the E in ESPN on the board of a media giant? This will not end well.

    Say what you will, but Shapiro grew ESPN by leaps and bounds. Their operating income rose by 300% under him.

    Integrity fell by the same amount, coincidentally...
