Multiple Reports won the MLB Trade Deadline at ESPN

If you were with us on Friday, you saw the strange timeline of events where ESPN sorta kinda avoided giving Peter King credit for breaking the news that Russell Wilson was re-signing with the Seahawks.  First ESPN ignored King’s report and gave their own report that a deal wasn’t done, then when they did report it, […]

MLS All-Star Game takes a big hit on Fox Sports 1

Here’s more evidence that the notion of any “bumps” from one very successful highly-watched event creating a higher audience for a less-watched event is just a myth.
