All ESPN has to do is reign in all the communist marxist rhetoric and tell their on air personalities to shut the hell up about politics and just call the games.........libtards refuse to admit that the vast majority of Americans don't give a damn what they think about the world at large.........libtards, you are irrelevant and are nothing more than a loud MINORITY that we the people are now beginning to relegate to the dump where you belong.....

I listen to 1 show on ESPN radio... Russillo and Kannell... they said on air this week "we are encouraged by Disney to not discuss our political viewings if it is contradictory to the stance of the company on air."

 

WTH?!?

I hope they go broke. I rarely watch it. Just another platform for the left. That liberal bilge is on enough liberal news outlets. Why they wanted to ruin a sports channel with it is beyond me. Wrap it up in a Kellogs box and throw it in the garbage.

ESPN has done so many good things... all bowls are viewable, they brought major tennis to viewable TV (not HBO), the conference networks... then they start merging in with GMA ppl and catering to all things political... NOTHING was political before Disney took over...

I watch sports for sports, not for the social conscience. That's what the SDC political forum is for.

I guarantee if Walt Disney was still around his company wouldn't have the stance that Disney does today. They are not upholding the values of their founder : http://hollowverse.com/walt-disney/ .

Interesting link, and I agree with you. If there were ghost, he'd rise up and smite the leadership of the company he created.

Exactly! The talk around the towns across America is that at least half the staff at DiseaseWorld ( Disneyworld) has gone weirdo by now.

Which agains makes me smh when the Republican Party is referred to as, The Party of Big Business. And maybe I'm just senile, but I don't remember before the turn of the century, businesses that "sell" to Joe America being this publicly involved in politics. If a company leaned to one party, it might show up in donations, but not public rules or expressions.

 

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but this all seems relatively new, and I'm not a fan, nor in my opinion does it make good business sense. If I owned a business selling Pet Rocks, I wouldn't care if you were a Communist or a Catholic Bishop, just buy my Pet Rocks.

That's the story I've always heard. He's frozen like Ted Williams until they can bring him back.

I agree, just keep your policies to yourself and not on public media. If someone posts a political stance on their own facebook page they can be terminated from their job even with the supposed privacy settings. I'll never understand that.

 

A side note, I did win a Pet Rock contest at Burger King in 1976 at McCann Rd. and Glencrest Ln. with a homemade rock. All I got was a free meal and a t shirt over the Pet Rock craze of the day, and my name mentioned in the Longview News Journal. I'd still take General Mills owned Burger Chef over McDonalds or Burger King to this day. My first choice will always be Whataburger, K&N Rootbeer, Top Burger, Dairy Queen, and then Burger Chef when I was a kid. Burger Chef had better kid's burgers back then, but that's what they were cheap kids burgers. They tasted better.

+100 on Buger Chef ruled with the cheap ones, back in the day, and Whatabuger rules now. Just saw a short documentary on the guy who came up with the Pet Rock. He was at the end of his financial rope when he was talking to friends about pets and the cost. Then he thot, we need a pet that doesn't cost money - Bingo, another millionaire was made. Good for him.

Personally I dislike lebatard show @ 9am. I only watch for live sporting events and listen billcoates and halftime show . Danny and kanell is not bad and Mike and Mike is ok. I lost respect for them during the whole Micheal sam saga and giving Bruce Jenner a courageous award. Wth

He made millions because people bought one. My mom made mine, and all it was just a rock that she wrote with a Marks-A-Lot (we didn't have Sharpies back then) "I'm tired and uncomfortable, please turn me over." once you turned the rock over she wrote "Thank you that feels much better." . It was more of her accomplishment than mine, because I didn't need a pet rock; I had a dog that was my best friend.

Everything on ESPN leads to a link that you can only access if your a "insider". I can the same info on Twitter faster and it's a lot more reliable too.

Another reason ESPN is losing money... need more paid subscriptions
