    well damn....didn't see that coming...and im sure SAS was getting tired of doing it and was stretched thin anyway with other engagements

    would've been interesting to see FT with him and someone other than Skip on there to debate but oh well

    First and drama queen was such a overdramatic scripted show. It bought ratings because people feel for the trolling however and was a big part of espn click bait for online videos. It was beyond played out so i am not surprised skip is leaving.

    I can't imagine skip without sas or vice versa. I guess I'm going to be watching his and hers.

    There been rumors about Bayless leaving. Surprised by Tirico tho.

    like others said: people are cutting the cord on cable and sports is a niche business while being the most expensive cable channel. So many alternatives to watch tv.

    Also, the fact ESPN and ESPN2 compete against each other for ratings makes staff expendable as well.

    I hope they get rid of Kay Fagan. Her weirdly timed pauses are just awkward.

    I think Will Cain would be a good sparring partner for Stephen A. but I could see them coming to blows. Will is full Reupublican.

    I did when it first came on strictly for UFC but the rest of their shows are garbage. They try to hard to be like Sportscenter & don't do anything original. Bet money Skip & someone else will do a First Take rip off. Overall no one really fucks with Fox Sports.
    Check out my blog "Shit Done Changed". As I go through the most member able albums of hip hop history year-by-year.

    JAMIE HOROWITZ WANTS TO CHANNEL FOX NEWS

    According to what Horowitz told Joe Flint of The Wall Street Journal in a piece published Wednesday, the shift away from news towards opinion will continue across FS1, not just on Fox Sports Live. Some shifts towards controversial opinions have already been made, such as last summer’s hire and promotion of former ESPN provocateur Colin Cowherd, and more are on the way; Horowitz has even talked about targeting Skip Bayless. Interestingly enough, he told Flint that FS1 will be taking a page from a controversial corporate sibling:

    Fortunately for Mr. Horowitz, there is already a blueprint within 21st Century Fox for what he wants to do with Fox Sports 1 – Fox News.

    “Fox News positioned itself as provocative and opinion oriented,” Mr. Horowitz said. “I believe Fox Sports 1 can take a similar tack.” Opinion costs less than news and documentaries, and is likely to stand out more in the busy sports media world, he theorizes.

    …One of Mr. Horowitz’s first moves was plucking Colin Cowherd from ESPN. Mr. Cowherd, who has an everyman’s approach to sports talk and a loyal following. “The Herd” is averaging 57,000 viewers, a small number but an improvement of more than 40% in its time slot. “People seem to think Colin is a more natural fit at Fox than he was at ESPN,” Mr. Horowitz said.

    Katie Nolan, a homegrown talent who has gained a following for her willingness to call out bad behavior and hypocrisy in sports, will also be featured prominently. “There is fearlessness to her and a level of insight she brings to the table,” Mr. Horowitz said.

    Other outspoken personalities with shows in the works include Jason Whitlock, a former Fox Sports 1 talent who is coming back after a stint at ESPN. He often tackles controversial topics regarding race in sports. However, a recent special he hosted on Fox Sports 1 made headlines for a different reason when New England Patriots star Rob Gronkowski gave a lap dance to anchor Julie Stewart-Binks.

    Regarding the tendency of some of his talent to make the wrong kind of news, Mr. Horowitz said, “as long as people are trying to do incisive programming, we’re supportive and helpful with them.”


    So, it looks like FS1’s strategy will be continuing to embrace debate and stir the pot, whether that’s on The Herd, the forthcoming Whitlock show or anything else. Being controversial and provocative certainly has done pretty well for Fox News, so it’s not surprising that FS1’s going that way, especially with First Take veteran Horowitz at the helm. We’ll see how much success it brings them, and if Horowitz’s shots at ESPN will prove prescient or poorly-timed.
