Joe Rogan will be sticking with the UFC for at least another year

Earlier this year, UFC fight analyst Joe Rogan said he would leave the company as a cageside commentator if it was sold to an outside investor. A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that UFC was indeed sold for a cool $4 billion.  While there are many things currently on the UFC agenda – from […]

WATCH: Rick Sutcliffe cuts up his tie during Cubs-White Sox broadcast

One of the most comical sports stories we’ve heard in quite some time is Chris Sale getting suspended by the White Sox after desecrating the team’s throwback jerseys because he didn’t want to pitch in them.

Last weekend, Nebraska punter Sam Foltz and former Michigan State punter Michael Sadler were tragically killed in an auto accident.

Tom Jackson could be leaving ESPN after almost three decades

The year 2016 has represented some monumental sea changes at ESPN.  The network has seen a number of high-profile on-air personalities depart for other television homes while also reshuffling some of their long-running announcing teams and studio programs.  But for longtime ESPN viewers (and that means the wide majority of American sports fans) there could […]

Facebook doesn’t know the difference between Liverpool and Arsenal

Facebook’s Trending Topics has been a source of controversy in recent months.  Earlier this year, there were allegations that Facebook suppressed news stories that were more politically conservative in nature from their trending bar even if they actually drew enough traffic to be considered “trending.” On Saturday, Facebook’s trending topics drew attention for another reason – its inability […]

David Pollack re-signs with ESPN, will have larger studio role

ESPN continues to slowly unveil more details regarding their college football lineup for the upcoming 2016 fall campaign.  While Chris Fowler and Kirk Herbstreit are locked into place as the top broadcasting duo, ESPN has seen a stupendously high number of announcing changes in the college football department. Much of that turnover is due to […]

NBC adding two Brazilian supermodels to their Rio Olympics coverage

NBC’s Olympic coverage has been getting more and more of a Hollywood element to it in recent years.  Much of that can be seen in the hiring of Ryan Seacrest to anchor the network’s late night coverage.  Seacrest is known for his years of experience hosting things that are definitely not sports like American Idol, Dick Clark’s […]

Fox Sports and ESPN have made what amounts to a trade of top-level sideline reporters.  Just days after ESPN’s Shannon Spake was signed by Fox Sports to become one of their lead sideline reporters, ESPN has signed Molly McGrath of Fox Sports. McGrath will be a sideline reporter and host for ESPN, both roles that […]

James Brown is returning to Inside the NFL

The new Thursday Night Football schedule features CBS, NBC, and NFL Network (and don’t forget Twitter) sharing rights to broadcast or stream the games. The matrix of who’s broadcasting and who’s simulcasting the games each week probably needs an advanced degree in quantum mechanics to figure out, but it does have a ripple effect throughout […]
