Open Invitation to fired ESPN employees: come and write for me……I will pay you $0.00….

ESPN is in a losing proposition, not only for the network, but for the fan.  Yes, the network that charges every cable subscriber in the country over $9 a month to view their programing on their various platforms, such as ESPN, ESPN Classic, ESPN2, ESPNU, SEC Network, and the Longhorn Network, is in a mess.  In a world of hurt in the tune of billions of dollars of lost revenue a year to go along with their payout of billions of dollars to televise such programing as professional sports, NCAA sports, and anything else that is shown on their channels, the situation is not good.  With the loss of over twelve million subscribers in the past six years and the increase per subscriber of  a monthly cost from $4.69 to $9.06, ESPN is losing more than a billion dollars a year for it’s parent companies ABC and Walt Disney.  Do the math if you don’t believe me.  This dog is not going to hunt in a few years as the younger folks in this country are turning off cable as fast as they can. 


Cable is dying and ESPN will suffer at the current setup. The fact that one hundred or so ESPN people fired this week is just a beginning.  Matter of fact, you don’t need ESPN, ESPN Sportscenter, or ESPN anything for basic news and video of the sports world. The net is where it is at, for information, such as replays, scores, and commentary. No need for ESPN opinions.  They are a dine a dozen. The millennials do not care.   Any one with money to buy a Appleby’s dinner once a month can be just as viable in this world by setting up their own little sports site on the net, and have thousands of readers and such to give you all the information you can digest.  With thousands of sites just  like mine, the way people get their information is and will continue to develop.  So any fired ESPN employee that wants to give their opinions or views on sports please let me know and I will let you write for me and I will pay you absolutely nothing.  Sports fans, enjoy your high priced ESPN.  And remember those $200 million dollar contracts that the superstars are going to get in the future. You have helped by paying your nine dollars a month for that to happen.
