Article Recap

1. Monday Night Football ratings are still down - Not applicable

2. ESPN isn't entertaining - Subjective, although I tend to agree since Stuart Scott passed.

3. The model is antiquated — nobody needs SportsCenter anymore - True, I prefer to get my scores and news online, vs waiting for recaps about things I don't care about.

4. They're doubling down on alienating potential audiences -  Although this article mentions specific points not relating to OSU,  I know for a fact that many people stopped watching after they flayed Jim Tressel over and over again.  That was the last day that I personally viewed a non live event (Including Game Day)

5. Yes, people are noticing the double standards - Again this portion of the article did not mention anything relating to OSU, but there are obvious double standards,  with the ESPN being in bed with the SEC, they don't get near the negative press as the B1G.

So what are your thoughts on the subject?
