    Everyone on here is talking about "boycotting" ESPN....what the heck does that mean.......I read their mag in the school library, but would never pay for it, regardless of OSU.....I'm not going to stop watching Tilt or Sportscenter......I'm just curious what anyone is doing besides venting on the board-has anyone actually stopped watching or cancelled their subscription

    Different people are doing different things. ESPiN is the only American sports channel available in my country. I have stopped buying the magazine. I have stopped watching SportsCenter and watch ESPiN only when the Buckeyes are on or perhaps the SuperBowl (which was broadcast by them here). I do not visit their website. It is one-hell of a sacrifice but I feel that it is a matter of principle and a small price to pay to support all of the people who's lives ESPiN has affected for the worst at Ohio State.

    I still watch a game on espn if it is really, really good or the buckeyes.....

    But, I can honestly say I have seen nothing else from them....no sportscenter ( it sucked anyways), no "original" programing (why would anyone waste time doing that) and no espn website either..... i now go to cnnsi.com in the morning to see what is going on....

    so....other than an occasional game.....they are completely gone

    Same here.. I only watch the Buckeyes or good college football games. I do not visit their website, and I cancelled my Rag subscription and my "Insider" subscription.

    Alan and I are one in the same on this.
    I have not watched anything on ESPN or ESPN 2 except a couple of games.
    I also make it a point to bitch at anyone I see looking at their website or watching sportscenter.

    Pretty much sums up my new relationship with ESPN as well.

    Add me to that list. Only a Buckeye game will get me to watch and nothing will get me to the web site.

    When its a Buckeye game all I watch is the actual playing time and its usually muted. Just can't stand any of those rat bastards.

    Same goes here. No espn unless it's a Buckeye game, but I haven't watched for a couple years now so it's nothing new for me. It has nothing to do with tOSU, the programming just flat out sucks, including sportscenter. I have this image of the people who still watch espn as the same ones who watch MTV. No offense meant to those that watch, just what I picture a typical espn viewer to be like, more into style over substance.

    called them up and bitched them out when i cancelled their mag....called them up and bitched them out a second time when they sent the mag to my house 3 months later and pretended like i never cancelled (fucking pricks)....only watch buckeye games or other good ones.....no sports center.....no website.

    i also discredit them to everybody i talk to.
