    ESPN: Michelle Beadle vs Erin Andrews

    Sounds like there is a bit of tension between/about these two in the ESPN family tree:

    *shrug*

    Just because they are arguably the two highest profile women on the network everybody is surprised they're not bff's? If it was two dudes it wouldn't be a story.

    Re: ESPN: Michelle Beadle vs Erin Andrews

    If they fire her for watching that video they just as well keep going. There's no way less than half of the people for ESPN didn't watch that.

    Oh, and I'll take Beadle.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Exactly, I bet half the people at that place don't really like each other.

    They'd have to fire me like 42 times.

    I'd take Samantha Steele over both.

    Re: ESPN: Michelle Beadle vs Erin Andrews

    I would take Beadle as well...that book will be interesting though. Sounds like that place was crazy bordering on out-of-control at times. The book could be a hatchet job...but I am sure there will be some items in the book that will be spot-on about Bristol.

    I bet the place is very cliquey.

    They both are average at best at their jobs yet make tons of money because we'll get all excited about a non-story like this.

    Half? I would be suprised if there are more than 5 total ESPN employees who haven't seen it.

    Re: ESPN: Michelle Beadle vs Erin Andrews

    Erin Andrews is the much bigger presence and franchise. She's everywhere, during college football season especially. Michelle Beadle does one goofy show that gets old after about 10 minutes. Andrews is the Rose Bowl; Beadle is the Peoria Pop Warner championship game.

    I'm guessing the bigger issue is that she went on record talking about it, when I'm sure ESPN told all their employees to keep their mouths shut.

    I agree with this. I am sure this is a no-no for ESPN employees.

    Doesn't she do a 2nd show on the weekends too? They also just gave her a podcast on espn.com. I think Andrews is the bigger franchise solely because ESPN was savvy enough to capitilize on her notoriety, not because of any real investment in her by the network.

    I've seen Beadle do a weekend show with a different partner (former NFL player, don't remember who, he's terrible) but it's the same basic format. Elementary sports opinion question, "sports nation" votes on it, Michelle overreacts to results.

    Re: ESPN: Michelle Beadle vs Erin Andrews

    I thought espn also contemplated not renewing Andrew's contract last year because she was getting too expensive and they didn't think she would be good in an anchor role because she has very little personality on air.

    I also like Beadle a lot more than Andrews
