    No sir, I don't like him. Not that he needs my admiration. He definitely wasn't there for his basketball insights. One less reason not to watch ESPN.

    Was sick of hearing him mention a quarterback every other sentence, hating on Kobe and the Lakers cause it was the cool thing to do, and mostly sick of him acting like he knows a lot about basketball.

    Enjoys hearing himself talk. I don't share his enjoyment.

    The only morning sports show I listen to when I'm feeling like it is Dan Patrick.

    I actually like listening to the guy if I ever am driving during that time slot. (Rarely) Whether I agree with his opinions or not, I like that he has strong ones and backs them up with an explained logic that he used. I think he's a great host.

    ESPN loses three big names in a row. I hope all three join the same network and give ESPN a run for their money. And then they can add Stephen A Smith, Rome, etc. That would be some watchable/listenable personalities all in one place. www.loudmouthsports.com

    It's BSPN, but it doesn't automatically show that way like Boston C Bags

    I actually haven't had a TV in my home since 2004. Even when I did I didn't have cable or Satellite. The last time I watched ESPN other than a game at a bar was when Tom Mees and George Grand were SC anchors.

    dumb question but I have always forgotten what BSPN means or stands for? I've spent too much time trying to figure this out without asking haha.

    It was a CL thing, tired of what the network's agenda against the Lakers, particularly on Kobe, spewing b******* or BS much of the time, hence the name.

    Yeah what @KareemtheGreat33 said. The BSPN acronym doesn't actually stand for anything. It's just a play on ESPN because they spew BS.....so "BSPN".

    Coward (did I misspell that?) was ok on two topics. He was ok on the NFL in terms of knowledge, but he was ALWAYS name dropping in a desperate attempt to validate himself. He was also ok when discussing off the field problems for the various leagues.

    But, when he focused on the NBA he invariably hurt my head with his inane opinions and glaring lack of understanding the game.
