In a tremendous rant, comedian Daniel Tosh obliterates the sports network ESPN, Sportscenter, their hosts and the profits they make off the NFL and college athletes
November 12, 2014

Comedian Daniel Tosh, who also has a highly rated show called Tosh.O on Comedy Central took offense with ESPN because they seemingly ripped off his material so he lit into their crass commercialism and bought and paid for suck-up-sophistry with an epic rant.

He lampooned ESPN's show called Sports Science, but in his segment, he used his science (you can check the facts if you like, I'll just laugh) to obliterate the sports network, their hosts and the profits they make off the NFL and college athletes so thoroughly that...oh...just watch it.

Tosh: Sportscenter breaks down like this:

60% Manziel gossip.
39% praising LeBron for buying a giant Brita filter to clean up Lake Erie.
72% jerking off the SEC.
41% explain away whatever crime an NFL player committed that hour.
2% other, which is room for whomever who has to fill in for Bill Simmons, every time he's suspended for having the audacity to defend women.

ESPN's 72 personalities who have no personality can somehow manage to exert enough force to climb all the way into the NFL's asshole.

With a grammatical error every 5th word, a normal segment contains nearly 400 instances of flawed Syntax. Simple mathematics tells us that that is a statistical anomaly.

Chris Berman's weekly two minute drill runs an average of five minutes and eleven seconds. That's five minutes and eleven seconds more than anyone outside of Buffalo wants to hear Chris Berman gargle on all seven of his chins.

For a measly 5.6 billion dollars ESPN won the broadcasting rights to the college football playoffs for the next twelve years. Zero dollars of that will go to the athletes. ESPN profits off of kids playing football, which means they support kids getting brain damage which means ESPN wants children to die or by putting it into scientific terms, ESPN loves killing kids.

Remember, ESPN dropped out of it's partnership with Frontline on the incredible NFL special called League of Denial: The NFL's Concussion Crisis because of pressure from the NFL.

On Thursday, ESPN, which has spent heavily in recent years to build its investigative reporting team, abruptly ended its affiliation with “Frontline,” a public affairs television series that was weeks from showing a jointly produced two-part investigative project about the N.F.L.’s contentious handling of head injuries. The divorce came a week after the N.F.L. voiced its displeasure with the documentary at a lunch between league and ESPN executives, according to two people with direct knowledge of the situation.

And we all know how much money the NCAA is pilfering from all its college athletes. It's time to call out ESPN for their role in it also.
