ESPN+ has been live for over 5 months.

Not sure about technical glitches; I haven't experienced any yet. My gripes were with the production of the broadcast, but that is not ESPN's fault. Putting it in "old guy terms" that I can relate to: if a radio station plays crappy songs, the radio station is not to blame for producing lousy music; they're just playing what they're given. ESPN+ is being given 1980's high school A/V Department broadcasts by the schools/league.

Disclaimer: I was never a subscriber of the Ivy League Network, so I can't say if the production of the Yale @ Cornell game last weekend was any better or worse than what has been shown in past years on ILN.

Some stands must be taken. Any DJ who plays Justin Bieber or Barry Manilow must be held accountable.

Or, for those who still remember Aldous Huxley, such DJ’s should be given a stiff dose of Soma.

Agree on both counts.

My analogy intended to define "crappy music" as music where, say, the drummer can't keep time, the singer is off-key, etc. The radio station cannot be blamed for such shortcomings, just as ESPN+ can't be blamed for lousy camera work, lack of replays, poor announcing, etc.

But crappy music can take many faces, no question.
