Career sportswriters dooced by ESPN

It must come as a shock to be laid off from a network as a writer, especially as a sportswriter for ESPN.  Fox News has a story about the layoff told in tweets from those affected, some of whom were informd very suddenly, even while on vacation.

ESPN is finding its business contract as consumers find other ways to watch sports as well as cable.  And it seems that the content streams from MLB. NFL, etc are very expensive indeed.

But there are some comments that the progressive measures of ,major sports leagues have driven away some viewed.

It would be fun to comment on Bryce Harper’s homers, or on who gets to be the Nationals’s closer. I have my own ideas.
