    I’m in Boston and every channel here has a pregame and post game show…too bad ESPN can’t be bothered but they wouldn’t want to cancel their women’s softball tournament

      Because they don’t care. But don’t worry, a new era coming in July when Versus gets renamed to NBC Sports along with the Comcast Sportsnet Regional Sports Networks which also going to be renamed to NBC Sports as well.

      What does ESPN has related to cities. Like ESPN Boston.com which is just a website.

      So looks like ESPN is going to take a hit.
