    After reading more about the budget cuts taking place at ESPN, I believe this might be the beginning of the economic bubble-burst for pro and college sports.

    by 3UteDad
    2015-07-10 16:42:29

    According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, the so-called "Worldwide Leader in Sports," is currently looking to cut $100 million from its 2016 budget and $250 million from 2017. And these cuts are coming from the top: ESPN's parent company, Disney, is demanding savings.

    A report from The Wall Street Journal, however, makes it seem like these cuts aren't just about saving money, but are really moves that seem to be made in response to a quick devolution of the company's business model.

    The Journal reports that ESPN has lost 3.2 million subscribers in over a year. Since 2011, ESPN's reach in US households has fallen 7.2% after having nearly 100% of the pay-TV market, or about 100 million households.

    There's some serious cost-cutting going on at ESPN — and it should make everyone nervous

    We have known for some time that the growth in sports spending was somewhat based on false demand. ESPN has had a stranglehold on content distributors and been able to command inclusion of their programming in base packages provided by cable and satellite companies. They are by far the highest cost channel in all these packages. Their revenues (and the amount they pay out in broadcast rights to pro leagues and college conferences) have been highly subsidized by non-sports viewers. Now that these non-sports viewers are finding alternatives, the cash cow may be dying a slow death.

    Has Provo been cheating on the census the same way they have cheated on internet surveys all these years?

    The 15 fastest-shrinking cities in the U.S.

    2. Provo, Utah
    Population: 114,801
    Loss over the past year: 1.3 percent

    Provo is a real surprise on this list. It actually grew from 2012 to 2013, by 847 people or 0.7 percent, yet this year it shrank by almost twice that much, the Census Bureau says. The bureau has consistently overestimated population growth in Provo. In 1999, it estimated the population at nearly 110,700, but in the official count in 2000, it was about 5,000 people less. In 2009, Census estimates put the population at almost 120,000, but it turned to be closer to 113,000.

    Provo is also the home of Brigham Young University, whose student population may also affect the estimated numbers. The university has reported declining enrollment over the past three years, from roughly 30,800 in fall 2012 to 27,200 in fall 2014.

    The conference has set up an arrangement to send a men's basketball team to China this fall and is having preliminary discussions of a potential football bowl game in Australia that would include a conference representative.

    As for Pac-12 football, the Pac-12 and Mountain West are talking about having representatives of their conferences play in a bowl game in Australia as early as after the 2016 season.

    If Verizon wins this case, look for other media distributors to follow suit. And that will end the subsidies that ESPN has been getting from non-sports fans that have been forced to pay for the network in their bundled packages.

    'My Husband’s Not Gay’ Reality Show

    “My Husband’s Not Gay” features what its network, TLC, calls “unconventional Mormon marriages.” Of the men featured in the show who are married, they are shown alongside their wives, who know about their husbands’ preferences and try to make their marriages work.

    What are the odds that this guy graduated from BYU?

    Jeff explains his orientation by comparing it to one’s preference for a certain type of food.

    “You could say I’m oriented towards doughnuts and if I was being true to myself, I would eat doughnuts a lot more than I eat doughnuts,” Jeff said. “But am I miserable? Am I lonely? Am I denying myself because I don’t eat doughnuts as I might like to eat doughnuts? I’m not.”
