ESPN is a dumpster fire.
Conservatives everywhere are sick of the network’s liberal bias and it resulted in the firing of 100 on-air personalities after subscriptions significantly subsided.
Now ESPN is overcompensating – attempting to reel back in their conservative watchers by bringing a famous country music star back to Monday Night Football.
Country music singer, Hank Williams Jr., originally wrote the theme song for ESPN’s Monday Night Football.
But the worldwide leader in sports parted ways with Williams in 2011 after he made a remark comparing former President Obama to Adolf Hitler.
Yet, ESPN’s “analysts” have said the same exact thing by comparing President Trump to Hitler as well.
They weren’t fired for their comment, which makes them undeniable hypocrites.
“Hank Williams Jr. is heading back to primetime on Monday Night Football.
According to Cindy Watts of The Tennessean, the country music star will once again welcome fans across the NFL to the Monday night party, six years after his dismissal following controversial comments made about former President Barack Obama.
‘I think it’s a return to our past in that it’s such an iconic song associated with football,’ said Stephanie Druley, ESPN’s senior vice president of events and studio production, to The Tennessean.
‘It was the original. It belongs to Monday Night Football. It really is about returning to what fans know.
It’s a Monday night party and that’s what we’re all hoping to get back to.’
It’s an exciting time for the singer himself, who has avoided using his trademark phrase since his removal from the program in 2011.
‘I never said, ‘Are you ready for some football’ on stage one time the last five or six years, but I will now,’ said Williams.
‘I’m feeling at home and it’s a real good thing … It’s kind of like the Nashville Predators playing for the Stanley Cup, it’s like ‘Wow.’”
Williams’ new version of “All my Rowdy Friends” will debut before the first MNF game on September 11th, which apparently is supposed to be amazing.
“While Druley is aware that the network will likely receive backlash for the decision, she iterated that it was the ‘right time’ for his return to iconic program, and after listening to early versions of the song, is confident that it will get fans excited once more for Monday Night Football.
’In listening to the recent cuts that I’ve gotten, it’s phenomenal,’ Druley said via The Tennessean.
‘It just immediately gets you psyched for the game you’re going to watch and for football fans, that’s a big deal. I think people will be really, really excited about it.’
For Williams, he’s just hoping to bring a little bit of joy back to the fans after his long hiatus.
‘I hope there will be some happy people on Monday night again,’ said the singer. ‘It feels natural, fulfilling and satisfying at this point when you’ve kind of done it all.’”
But one prominent ESPN analyst, Bomani Jones, tweeted about his networks’ bias and the decision to bring back Williams.

This is clear evidence that ESPN is overcompensating by bringing Williams back and attempting to appease conservatives. But with that also comes an angry liberal opposition, so it should be interesting to see if this works and how long it lasts.
