John Anderson thinks USC is a “clown college”

In the aftermath of the Josh Shaw story that has turned from inspirational to disappointing (to say the least) in shockingly quick fashion, more questions have risen about USC’s ongoing, seemingly never-ending drama. While anchoring SportsCenter on Wednesday night, John Anderson didn’t mince words while talking with Danny Kanell, calling USC a “clown college”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GNPqclXDgJY […]

Dish and Fox Sports 1 have struck a deal to show college football

Last week we told you about a strange dispute between Fox Sports 1 and Dish Network that focused on the network’s college football offerings.  Disagreements between providers and networks are now commonplace on the media landscape, but rarely do they ever target specific programming.  The threat of a blackout for Dish customers threatened the opening […]

NFL: Preseason-San Diego Chargers at San Francisco 49ers

Anti-Semitic joke gets longtime Chargers announcer suspended

We all say stupid s—. At least most of us do. I do, that’s for sure. Usually, the stupid s— we say is said with no ill-will, but it’s stupid and offensive nonetheless. Most of the time, when these stupid moments happen, the consequences are limited. That’s because most of us aren’t being recorded by […]

Mack Brown won’t talk about Texas on ESPN?

Network conference calls are a lot like press conference in sports.  Instead of coaches or players producing cliches about “taking it one day at a time” or “giving 110% percent” it’s television personalities.  Everyone is “excited” for whatever broadcast season is upcoming and the lineup always looks “stronger” than ever.  The fact that many of […]

Chris Fowler isn’t going to try to be Brent Musburger in the booth

One of the biggest media storylines of this fall will be Chris Fowler replacing Brent Musburger in the top college football booth at ESPN.  Musburger had capably taken over from Keith Jackson as the “voice of college football” over the last decade and is still at the top of his game.  Because of Fowler’s contract […]

FS1 beats ESPN with debut of new fantasy football show

When Fox announced plans for a new weekly fantasy football show, there was a collective eyebrow raise across the industry.  Fox’s obsession with Hollywood and forcing celebrities of any kind into their sports programming has always been akin to fitting a square peg in a round hole.  It struck again with FFU (quite the acronym, by the […]

KrustyCup

Once upon a time, the NHL was mad at The Simpsons

The NHL has done a lot of silly things over the years. Though the numerous lockouts and the Guardians project come to mind as some of the league’s largest blunders, their angry letter to The Simpsons regarding Krusty the Clown and the Stanley Cup has to be a close contender. In Season 9 of The […]
