ESPN pisses me off for 2 reasons

1) they are soooo PRO NY & MASS/CONN - biased to a point that i want to throw something at my TV 

2) their website requires you to buy a membership to read about the "INSIDER NEWS" !!!  Like you need to be special to hear about it first............that's what's wrong with the U.S , everyone wants to charge you for everything!

With that being said though, I do enjoy reading ESPN.COM/CHICAGO to get my local sport news.

For everything else, I use CBSSPORTS.COM

ESPN can wear out an almost meaningless NY or Boston story within a couple hours. If something even slightly interesting happens in those cities i can't watch ESPN for two days because it's being brought up every 10 fk'n minutes. I don't mind hearing the news from those places or a bottom line news flash but i mean cmon how many time do u really need to report it within 24-48 hours.

And your right charging for the "Insider News" is fairly ridiculous even when they first started out and had solid writers like Peter Gammons for baseball etc it wasn't worth paying for and now the quality of the writers there has gone down a couple of levels at least.

 Awesome poll. As a sports writer, I was hoping more people checked "newspaper," but I guess I knew better.

For sports info involving individual stats and team records, I use the appropriate sport-Reference.com site
They have in-depth statistics and other viable sports related information.

ESPN can kiss my ass.  They've sucked since shortly after I shoulda followed Charlie Steiner to freedom.

Fox Sports does it for me most of the time.

Rivals.com - it's a college football recruiting site, but the message board is pretty much like Twitter.  Sports news and news in general breaks there all the time.

Chicago Trib, ESPNChicago, the redzone.org, profootballtalk.com, sportsbybrooks.com and of course.......

FanIQ.  Scott does a great job of keeping us informed.

I Kinda Miss Fox Sports, When I Was In Seattle....All We Get Down Here Is ESPN And I Have To Wait About 2 Hours Into Sportscenter To Finally Hear Something About My Favorite Teams Which Are On The West Coast... Really Sucks...

Fox Sports Detroit for the local teams, but I love MLB Network and watch that all year. There coverage of baseball, obviously, can't be beat. I actually hate watching Sports Center on ESPN. Since they don't broadcast the hockey games, there is very little coverage. Anyone remember the old George Michael Sports Machine on Sunday nights?

Dan Patrick every morning Mon-fri. More than just sports which is good. Sometimes I even catch the 101 direct tv  when not in car which is always fun to watch them f%$#@ng around during commercial breaks. What a great job, those guys have it made as far as sports radio gigs go.
