Last week, we led the newsletter with a report that the new host of “Monday Night Football Countdown” would be either Scott Van Pelt Or Laura Routledge. I co-host on the podcast john orand, I said Van Pelt has the inside track. He is standing there. It will likely be Van Pelt as ESPN seeks to increase its association with the big events and, in his view, the Monday Night Desk is an opportunity to do so. While it’s heading towards that, I’ll also add: If I were ESPN, I would have a plan for Rutledge because she has shown to be a tremendous host and hard worker. ,

ESPN analyst, Adrian Wojnarowski, reports on the game between the Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics during Game 4 of the 2022 NBA Playoffs Eastern Conference Finals at TD Garden on May 23, 2022 in Boston, Massachusetts.

You know when something becomes a talking point and you can’t quite figure out why – that’s me Dan Le Batardbroad side of Adrian Wojnarowski, Le Batard said that Wojnarowski has been “bought and paid for” by the Portland Trail Blazers, as he noted Wojnarowski’s reporting on potential damian lillard Do business in Miami. The term is offensive enough, but what I could not understand was this: what did Wojnarowski do or do wrong? Yep, looks like they’ve put Portland’s position through sources. This is called reporting. Le Batard explained Miami’s position on the trade. I know from my own experience, it is not fair to second guess the sources. This has happened to my reporting on sports media news and about 90 percent of the time people are wrong. Presumably — and perhaps, hopefully — it’s from Trail Blazers sources when Wojnarowski expresses what Portland is thinking. Now, this isn’t always true of how some, if not all, major sports insiders work. It’s a very competitive beat, which gives subjects some power over reporters due to supply and demand. Perhaps we’ll deal with the story of insiders and alleged horse-trading at some point, but, in this case, I’m not exactly sure how Wojnarowski was “bought and paid,” if he has the story right at this point. ….NBC officially announced its pregame teams for its new Big Ten prime time games. leading host maria taylor will join matt castle, joshua perry, Michael Robinson And Ahmed Fareed, Worth noting that the show will be live at every game each week, which is exactly how the college game works. Although the early NBC Big Ten schedule wasn’t very impressive, this should help make it feel a little bigger. ,

arrival of Lionel Messi Is a perfect home run for MLS. We wrote earlier that whatever it would cost the league in total to bring Messi in would likely be worth it. He’s arguably the best player ever and he just won the World Cup, so playing in the United States means a lot for the game here. One thing that makes this different from when Pelé was a sensation is the Apple-ization of the world, where the video part of where one’s feet are located is not as important as it was in the late 70s. At the time, when Pele came on, you had to live in the United States to see him live on TV. The beauty of watching Pele was just for NASL fans. Now, anyone with an internet connection can watch Messi. Which is why Apple’s idea of ​​selling sports subscriptions works so well with Messi. That’s why he has the rare opportunity to take a cut of the money he earns from the membership. But this also increases the pressure on MLS. Since the goal of signing Messi was to become a world league, MLS needs to get better, so when Messi leaves, all those international and domestic fans who suddenly love MLS don’t go with him. All other top leagues around the world from Premiership to La Liga have also been digitized. Messi can’t be just another show on Apple TV+, like”ted lasso“It has to be a building block to make a lasting impact on the league. So the script for Friday’s movie was tremendous, the way it will work in the long run is as much about the rest of the team as it is about Messi.

Now, he may return as an ESPN analyst; However, in light of recent layoffs and an eye on ESPN’s budget, the question is whether this will work.
