ESPN doesn't deserve the benefit of the doubt and this press release detailing planned, structured wackiness is absolutely a turn-off, but it's entirely possible that this event will be fun, too.

Yeah, they donít deserve any credit ahead of time. The tweets at the end of the last page lookÖoof.

And now the whole nation - pulpit and all - will take up the war-cry, and shout itself hoarse, and mob any honest man who ventures to open his mouth; and presently such mouths will cease to open.

Probably the final nail in the gutting of the regionals

Also if they move to Peacock, does that mean for instance most Flyers/Sixers/Phillies are only available via streaming? Maybe they'll finally be able to smash draconian blackout rules but who the hell knows

This along with Amazon Prime getting Thursday night football might actually kill off cable. Live sports moving to those sort of platforms would be brand new. Iíd be ecstatic if I could get local sports and not have to sign up for cable, or something like YouTubetv.

Cable is dead exactly when ESPN decides itís time to offer a standalone streaming service.

Problem with untethering sports from cable is that all of the rights and contractual obligations are such a tangle that itís going to be a years-long transition even when the leagues and networks reach the point where they want to do so.

Damn it, this always happens. I think I'm gonna score, and then I never score. It's not fair.

The old This is Sportscenter commercial with him making the anchors do line changes is probably the last time ESPN had thought about hockey before they got the rights recently.

this seems more like nbc continuing to pair down their sports rights than regional networks in general dying to me

it's not 100% comparable (and is something I've mentioned before) but all three tiers of Japan's soccer J-League have a deal with DAZN in Japan, all matches are live on the streaming app (~$18/month) on top of whatever other satellite deal the league has. Japan's baseball also has all games live on there as well. It's great!

Michael Jordan isn't exactly beaming with personality either.

In order to be one of the GOATs at something you usually get to skip part of your personal development, even now. Look at Lionel Messi - he's got all the personality of a tree.
