    Tom Jackson will not return for this season Sunday and Monday pregame shows. End of an era followed by the eventual departure of Chris Berman.

    ESPN is losing money . Kids aren't getting cable and ESPN's household number are down. Gone are the big money anchors... it will be a parade of poorly paid stringers from now on.

    As long as that barely-able-to-read-or-speak ugly cunt Antonietta Collins isn't on NFL shows I'll be happy. She is the worst I've ever heard on that horrible channel and that's saying something. I hope Chris Berman dies.

    If I ran NFL Network I'd be at Tom Jackson's door with roses and a contract faster than you could say "Fuck ESPN"

    He's 65 years old, I doubt he'll get a full time gig anywhere.

    Not to mention, he's the idiot who in 2003 said the players on the Patriots "hate Bill Belichick" after starting 2-2. All they did after that is win back-to-back Super Bowls in '03 and '04. Tom played in two Super Bowls for Denver and lost both of them.

    ESPN is hemmoragging money... They're losing cable subscriber fees* because of cord-cutters, but promised billions to the sports leagues over the next decade for rights.

    Anybody that got paid anything, or negotiated their deals decades ago, is getting clipped.



    *ESPN makes $6 a month from every cable subscriber in the U.S.
