Yeah. People who are blindly hating ESPN crack me up. There's a ton of garbage on there, as there is with any other network, and some people have a personal distaste for various talking heads, justified or otherwise (though ESPN does seem to be pretty good about hiring some of the worst possible people to broadcast, do analysis, etc.), but every 30 for 30 I've watched has ranged from very good to superb, and PTI continues to be the best 30 minute daily catch up there is, when Tony and Mike are both on. I was sort of pissed that Saturday night I was stuck with the USC/Washington game instead of Oregon/Stanford, since apparently one is more in my 'region' than the other, but that's neither here nor there
They show a lot of big college games in both football and hoops, Monday Night Football, plenty of out of market prime time baseball... saying 'who watches ESPN anymore?' just seems silly, unless you're just not that into sports in general.
