re: Sources: ESPN laying off hundreds(Posted by timbo on 5/21/13 at 12:13 pm to BunkieWrench)
Oh, there are hundreds of people over at the Worldwide Leader who should be fired. Screamin' A and Skip Bayless are way up there, but I can avoid them by not watching that stupid show. Berman and Holtz ruin my enjoyment of football.
Cuts to increase margins and improve shareholder value. These things happen when you are part of a publicly traded company. The good parts of a conglomerate oftentimes end up having to sacrifice for those groups that are suffering.

This is exactly the kind of thing that makes me mad about these companies doing this kind of thing. They pay some folks millions of dollars, but have to let go hundreds of others to make up for it. I realize it's capitalism, but geez....
