this idiot is why ESPN needs to fire these people and get back to reporting sports alone and get rid of the politics.

He reminds me of the liberal DB married to my niece. Can’t separate life from his whacked political beliefs and opinions. My brother asked him when is the last time he got punched in the mouth after one of his rants, I almost passed out laughing he was so offended.

This is how sports have worked for decades. You take a position you know that will get a reaction out of the audience. It's amazing people still don't realize how easily they are played.

Keep in mind, the people losing their shirts over whatever this random, powerless "liberal" blow-hard said are the same ones who voted for Trump, a random, rich, and (unfortunately) very powerful "right-wing" blow-hard.

It is hilarious how they can't see it.

thats fine, he can have his political opinions, but he needs to espouse them where they make sense, like on msnbc or cnn, not espn. on espn i want to hear sports not politics, and i dont care what side of the isle they are on. support trump, hate trump, what ever, it doesnt belong in sports PERIOD.

It wasn't about politics. It's about ratings. How many clicks do you suppose people ranting on the internet will get them? This is a long tried and true tactic with sports talk.

ESPN is targeting that huge group of people who are both diehard sports fans and lovers of all things liberal and PC. This is sure to be a winning strategy for them.

OK? So then it's all moot, right? They still get paid on Youtube clicks.
