I see your point, and I agree that in depth story lines deserve their own place in sports media. But aren't they covered enough with shows like PTI, Around the Horn, Rome is Burning, Outside the lines, the sports reporters...etc.? I just meant that sportscenter is noticably different than it was a few years ago, back when Kenny Mayne and Dan Patrick were doing the show all the time, even going back to the Keith Olberman days. The only time sportscenter is any good now is monday mornings during NFL season with chris berman. I wonder if there was any change in management/editorial staff that occured at ESPN? I just like sportscenter to be more about the actual games than all the other stuff.

It's true, It sad that the subject matter gets back seat to the $. In Mtv's case I sure they started realizing that the had a gauranteed audience if they put shows on in the same time slot every week. The Real World, and Beavis and Butthead started it, even though I think remote control was the first show. Gradually we ended up with the garbage they are now. Espn is just following suit, and the money. I ask ya what's the point of having a speciality channel?

Barry Bonds and Terrell Owens, need I say more?
The sportscenter commercials are not quite what they used to be.
Sportscenter itself is not quite what it used to be. It used to be my favorite thing on television, but not anymore. The anchors are dull and boring. They show about 5 minutes of highlights during an hour and a half show. The rest of the time they just harp on overhyped storylines such as what did T.O. do at training camp? etc. Its one thing to report on a story, its another thing to devote 90% of your programming to it. For me, I think sportscenter should be about 80% "highlights" and 20% "storylines" right now its definitely the other way around. Anyone else with me on this??

(sorry for the rant)
Yes. I'm with you. But you forgot to add the mindless hours of Poker, Dominoes, Cheerleading, and Paint Ball. C'mon. If the NFL ain't on, I'm not tuned in. Oh yeah, and they even dropped the Schwab.
