I have the direct link to Sports Guy's World bookmarked, so I don't have to navigate anywhere else.

The video thing is garbage. If I wanna watch it, I'll play it on my own, don't start it up every time I load a page. MLB.com is just as bad. I don't how many times that stupid DHL Hometown Heroes commercial came blaring through my speakers at work before I could turn it off.

I honestly end up at Fox Sports a lot anymore, especially since that's who MSN links to now for all their sports coverage.

You guys wanna hear about Nick Saban?

Turn on ESPN right...... NOW

Or anytime in the next 48 hours. Slow sports week.

Yeah Page 2 is about the only decent thing left on ESPN. I also like the chats but once they are done they are insider material as well.

I'm not sure what anyone expects from ESPN. They don't report the news anymore. With 24 hours and 5 channels to fill they need to make things news. It's the reason why Stephen A Smith has a job on TV.

I like some of the articles, especially the Page 2 stuff, but other than that I don't see much need to use them. I do watch ESPN News on tv though, which is great. It's pretty much all sports all the time, no filler stuff like spelling bees and scrabble tournaments.
