I would expect major bidders like Twitter, Googles, Netflix Live, Amazon,...just like we saw the NFL do. ESPN may not buy exclusive rights to the ACC or SEC but they could lose some rights that would be steered to a pay per ebays method. Perhaps more likely ESPN will get a cut of the action or buy it outright and sell off blocks to the internet options.

This would also mean that the very thing that drove the cord cutters to seeking other options will be likely forced down our throats.

The radical element of cord cutters would rather pay $100 for the shit they want instead of $50 for the shit they want plus the shit they don't want.  There is no one cause of ESPN's troubles, but many, but this recent round of assquackery wont help them.  They are still very profitable, just not as obscenely profitable as they were in the past.

They should pull a Trump and just start renegotiating the contracts.

Threaten to stop paying.  Renegotiate.

I'm paying 15 for HBO, 12 for Netflix, and my ISP gets espn 360 for free.  I'm really not at a loss.
That's what I do. I drink and I know things.

I got directvnow the day it came online. $35 for 100 channels. I got a free appletv for paying 3 months in advance. Then just a month ago, they gave me hbo free for a year. Plus whatever netflix costs, but I'm saving at least $100 per month over the old directv.

Say what you want, I could care very little about ESPN firing folks.  I don't watch Sportscenter to see anything but highlights.  I like 30 for 30.

What makes me mad is History Channel 2 getting replaced by whatever it is called now.  Vice?  Viceland?  Not to offend those that partake, but having a series about weed ettiquette?  Makes me remember how funny I used to think that ONE Cheech & Chong tape about "Dave not being there" was pretty funny, but a full season of stuff almost exactly like that?

But, they will give you thirty strong minutes on race relations.

Keep watching.   Viceland's show about weed will be one of their better shows.  Not to get political, but their lineup makes MSNBC look like Pat Robertson's network.

ESPN missed a great opportunity to drive ratings and ad revenues this spring. 

All of their talent should have been put into a fight to the death gladiator tournament.

I'd have liked to see Michelle Beadle with a net and trident going after Stephen a smith.

I don't watch ESPN much.  Have their H1B replacements started showing up on TV yet?  They are DIsney, that is SOP.

When I lived there the only minorities were the two Catholic girls in high school.
