Disney, ESPN, to gobble up NFL Network?

According to si.com, ESPN, the mass-media mainstream corporate empire, is "in talks about a partnership" with the NFL Network, which is owned and operated by the NFL.

In my opinion, if this went through, it would suck really, really bad. ESPN has reduced from a respectable channel to a lazy pack of rubbish, led by ignorant know-nothings and Chris Berman's whoooop noise. Instead of sticking to what they do best, the highlights, they feel the need to pack countless hours of feel good stories, unresearched analysis, and mediocre, well, everything. Remember "Who's Now?" That was the worst idea, ever.

NFL Network has its share of blithering windbags, sure, but everything ESPN touches turns to crap. If you need convincing, take a look at this.

Also, the NFL Network at least recognizes the Broncos' existence. They give decent coverage, especially of the draft, and most of their reporters seem to know a little bit about everyone they're covering. ESPN taking NFL Network would put an end to any respectable analysis available on TV.
