Arsenal's Eduardo Da Silva injured in outrageous tackle, possibly ending his career. : A truly horrific injury, broken pieces of bone were sticking out of his sock as he was stretchered of the field. This is the sort of injury that you never truly recover from (See Alex Smith). I hope the FA bans Martin Taylor for life.

FoxSports "pivot to video" decision has cost them almost 90% of their audience.

As someone who worked in sports journalism until about a month ago, I can tell you that every. single. person. in the business who wasn't a suit thought this was a terrible, terrible decision for Fox Sports. No one watches video at work, during commutes on public transport or on their phone. The ONLY benefit is that video ads pay more than ads for web stories do... but when you lose all your viewers no one wants to buy ad space with you anyway.

Additionally, more than ever writers have become public personas that readers/viewers adopt and follow. Canning your quality figureheads in print to embrace blowhard talking heads that we all tune out, essentially punting on all the consumers who are going to follow their guy to whatever network or outlet picks them up off your scrapheap... nonsensical.

It's trendy to point to "political" moves made by ESPN and other major outlets as reasons why viewership is way down, but in reality it's because the decision-making at the top has been ridiculously bad for a really long time.
