Before "PTI" or "First Take" or any of today's popular sports debate programs on TV, there was The Sports Reporters on ESPN. For nearly 30 years, every Sunday morning, top sportswriters exchanged in passionate, intelligent conversation about the major sports issues and personalities today. Now, anchored by Mitch Albom and Mike Lupica - two of The Sports Reporters longest-standing members - the magic of the show is in podcast form, enabling the hosts to continue their highly popular tradition with the benefit of twice-a-week perspectives. In addition to Albom, of the Detroit Free Press, one of the most decorated sportswriters in history, and Lupica, perhaps the country's most recognized and opinionated sports scribe, a third voice will join each program, ranging from former Sports Reporters panelists like Bob Ryan, Bill Rhoden and Christine Brennan, to new and fresh voices in the industry. Join the best conversation in sports every Monday and Thursday.

2 out of 3 ain’t bad

This would definitely be a 5 star rating but for Mr Lupica’s whiny voice and love of trashing certain politicians. I enjoy listening to some very smart guys who have good chemistry together and speak their minds without just making “hot takes” for click bait.

Done with radical politics

I’m done with Mike Lupica spouting off far left politics. I don’t want to hear about far right politics either. I subscribed for sports talk. Add Lupica’s inability to speak without stuttering peoples names, and it makes the most annoying sports “reporter” even more so. Mitch and Bob should do a show with someone else.

NFL and tennis.

Great comments on NFL hypocrisy. You forgot to mention Jay Z’s mysogynistic lyrics. I love hearing Mike’s take on tennis. Could he explain why women do not play best of five. Women run marathons and complete full Ironmans and give birth. I believe they the stamina and endurance.
