Its sad that dumbing down discussions for the masses has become acceptable because its profitable. Intelligent discussion has no place in America unless you're a comedian and all you can do is laugh at the absurdity of a culture that worships KISS (and not the band).
When Mark Cuban ripped on Skip Bayless he put it perfectly, basically stating what you are right now. I find the leagues own networks put out a better product than ESPN, I watch NFL networks pregame and analysis shows over ESPN and think it's far superior. The only thing on ESPN I even remotely like is College Gameday for football, since I think Corso and Herbstreit are actually good personalities.
Almost all of the other personalities on ESPN are a bunch of blowhards spewing crap.
