ESPN is tanking. It has been a drag on Disney stock. ESPN management isn’t interested in sports as much as their social impact. They also no longer carry very many top level sporting events. To top it off they aren’t the only sports network anymore.

People watch sports for the purity of the sport. Sports display true human drama and extreme effort. They don’t watch sports or sports channels for social commentary. This is why Fox sports and NBC sports networks are eating their lunch.

Or people watch sports as an escape from the constant crud thrown at us by corrupt politicians and corrupt media.

When I started out in the heyday of Cable Television - the late 1980’s. ESPN was at the top. They ruined themselves.
