This may be [old] but espn.com is close to useless for sports news that isn't a big story. Like I saw on Twitter that the Houston Rockets had signed a couple free agents, I go to the Rockets team page and their is absolutely nothing about anything in the last month other than stories about Harden and Westbrook. The "transactions" tab doesn't even have the Westbrook trade.

ESPN (not just the website) has been hot garbage for a long time now. Once they got in bed with the NFL along with deciding they wanted to run college football they lost all journalistic integrity.

their saturation of NFL coverage/shows isn’t nearly as bad as it was a few years ago when literally every show from 1-5 was an NFL show. that was the low point.

I miss when they would show wacky shit on ESPN2 during the day like "Hunting Dog Championship" or "Caber Tossing."

And oh man, the amount of hours entranced with Jeanette "Black Widow" Lee smoking fools in pool.

I only ever watch games on espn. And that’s not because I’m a PackPride poster bitching about their “liberal agenda”. The way most of us consume sports has changed a lot lately. Podcasts, twitter, message boards...they all keep me up to date on the info and highlights I care about. I can see a highlight clip instantly on twitter instead of waiting till SportsCenter to see the highlights. Whatever they’re debating on First Take has probably already been discussed on twitter.

i also don’t do as much mindless tv viewing as i did in college. If my tv is on, I’m actively watching something as opposed to just having SportsCenter on in the background for hours.

But as long as espn is airing big time events live, it won’t be going anywhere.

Every single time I go to the gym locker room in the middle of the day to workout during the week there is a talking head/panel show on ESPN2 (locker room always on that channel) and they are GUARANTEED to mention one of two things in the <10 min I'm in there:

1) Lebron James
2) The NFL

Lebron I know will go away in a couple of years so whatever. They only mention him 10-20% of the time now.

But the NFL shit is hilarious because they've managed to find shit to talk about 365 days of the year. Like mid-June, well past the draft, well before preseason they're in there debating franchise tags and guys opting to sit. I guess this is what people want to hear but it's like.. c'mon. Anything else, really.

Yea i mean I'm not even that worried about the TV stuff, or even the "integrity"...well I mean i guess I am, but my post was looking for a bare minimum. If your website is supposed to be about sports information and news, provide that sports info and news.

On twitter David Hale defended it by saying Wilson counted for Wisconsin. And we got dinged for lack of individual awards/accolades. Their system seemed deeply flawed.

Friendly reminder that ESPN's QBR is a terrible stat:

Sam Howell: 14/26 for 147 yd, 1 TD, 1 INT 77.6 QBR
Devin Leary : 19/30 for 247 yd, 4 TD, 0 INT 48.0 QBR

Even so, he had less TDs and more turnovers. That's saying that Leary had a below average game and Howell had a very good game. I believe according to their system 50 = average 100 = perfect.
