  • I'm glad that this doesn't change his status on local radio. At least we can still get to hear his take. He may not have 100% accuracy (who does really), but he reports with fairness and a fairly high amount of accuracy. I'd take his opinion seriously way more often than most of the sports reporters out there. You just don't see him get into a lot of the click bait stuff that so many seem to use too often.

    Your last sentence is one of the reasons he is so good. The TMZ mentality is all too common in the sports media these days.
    Clayton will land on his feet and probably have a new national gig within' a month (barring a no-compete clause).

    I would hope that Clayton is smart enough to insure that any non-compete clause in his contract would have escape routes for situations where he is laid off such as this.

    I have become less and less a fan of national sports media and focus more on local media as I think they generally do a better job of covering what I want to know.

  • ESPN is dumb.

    It feels like they just want hot women and loud mouths. Entertainment over substance. I watch the games for entertainment, I watch sports shows for information and insight.

  • I love how everyone bashes TMZ. You do realize in 2017 TMZ is the source of news and ESPN is the source of reaction to the news. TMZ Sports reports more news than ESPN does and that is why 2017 ESPN is screwed.

  • ESPN is a dumpster fire. They started pushing issues and agendas that were outside the pervue of sports and it cost them.

    I canceled my subscriptions to ESPN and Sports Illustrated for that reason.

    I think Fox sports recognized that trend and focused on sports. I think they will come out on top because of it.

    Could not agree more!

    But Clayton didn't appear to be too upset!

    He'll stay busy and probably can get another gig as fast as he wants too!

    ESPN sucks now!

    I like John Clayton!

    He's my favorite reporter!

    I want to meet him someday and take a photo with him!

  • ESPN sucks and I don't watch that Network unless I have to for a Seahawks game. They have to much politics in there programming now. It's unfortunate that politics has become such a dividing line in America that even our Sports are becoming politicized. They also engage in to much negative coverage of certain teams. ESPN has been on an absolute mission to run down Seattle this off season. Even when the players come out on record and give different facts they just ignore them and pump out exaggerated stories and a narrative that fits there agenda.

    They do this to the Jets too. I think it is a sign that the team has arrived to a point that any Seahawks news is national news

  • I don't watch a lot of ESPN for various reasons, but mostly because it has become tabloid TV and I hate that.

    I'm not surprised Clayton is out, his role had already being reduced. The only thing I ever saw him doing was giving injury updates and you can find that information in 100 other places now, you don't need ESPN for it.

    On the whole, ESPN does a lot less NFL work then they used to. With the NFL network taking the lion share of those viewers ESPN has pivoted to NBA, MLB, Soccer and Social Justice to fill their time slots.

  • ESPN has been a joke for awhile now. I only watch their live sports programs than sportscenter or any of their gab shows. Clayton seems more suited for the NFL Network anyway. Surprised that they didn't pick him up earlier. Hopefully they will hire him now.

  • if Clayton was a hot 25 year old female with blonde hair he would of kept his job...its all about eye candy for these sports networks now and some recently retired athletes. in the mix. Actual inside intel and sports journalism is dead.

    Says the guy with a crotch shot as an avatar.

    agreed though, If clayton were a good looking/bloviating loud mouth with no facts to back up his opinion guy, he'd still be in front of the camera. He's not though.
