"Why are all Fox sport shows straight trash? "


          

The only exception being Undisputed, but even some of their episodes
are lacking at times.

The set designs are all the same, and lack any type of creativity or presence. Their
shows look like infomercials or political talk shows.

Also, they don’t present or showcase any young sportscasters or young journalists.
Even though I’m in my late 40s, and I love my generation, there still needs to be a
balance of young and old. ESPN does a good job with that.

I have my gripes about some of the things that ESPN does as well, but they are way more
advanced, entertaining and informative than FOX.

Now I did enjoy Speak for Yourself with Marcellus Wiley and Acho . They had a decent
set design and provided some good sports chatter, but they took Wiley off the show….
It’s not the same anymore.

Fox doesn't give a shit about young audiences. Their whole base is centered around "old and mad," both in sports and in news.

The only good thing they have regarding sports in any capacity is Gus Johnson's contract.

I will say this, though. Their NFL and NCAA football pregame shows are good….
and that’s because of the presence of Michael Strahan and Reggie Bush.

if it wasnt for Pat McAfee id have abandoned Gameday entirely this year.

Gameday itself has been slowly getting lamer and lamer over the years. its like a band that has to get less cool and more acceptable to draw bigger crowds. by the time they are playing the Meadowlands they are either a nostalgia act, or a mild variant of U2.

Mcafee seems like he’s there for the sole purpose of catering to the SEC/maga audience.

Gameday is just a gong show at this point and basically unwatchable. The carnival barker shtick that mcafee and Desmond bring are big reasons why.

So maybe his schtick would have been less jarring if they have been greatly moving in that direction in the past couple of years
