Sergio Dipp

What do you think of this Sergio Dipp guy on ESPN?

ESPN put some amateur reporter on Monday Night Football because he was Mexican, but he stumbled through it and social media ripped on him. Then he went to his hotel, basically crying, and went on a rant about being a minority.

Same here. I quit watching Monday Football years ago when it was on ABC and Joe Namath was one of the color guys. Just awful.

And has anybody watched Sportscenter lately? Horrible now. They put more emphasis on what's happening on social media rather than what's actually happening on the field. I watch them for college football games and nothing else.

The second that you include a link to Rush "the human kielbasa" Limbaugh you lost credibility; that is the same fat jerk that claimed that Hurricane Irma was a leftist conspiracy. Try again with a credible source the Wall Street Journal or the BBC, heck even the New York Post would be a better source!

Well I did not watch the first game, but from your link it looked like Mr Dipp felt a bit out of place, but maybe give the guy some time and plus do we know for sure that Dipp only got the job because he is Mexican?

Btw Dipp looks whiter then most white Americans.

In a similar story the 2nd mon night game had a female announcer with Rex Ryan doing color commentary. I thought the lady did great but Rex dropped the ball. Afaik Ryan has no announcing exp what so ever where as at least the Mexican guy had experience. Sometimes ESPN just likes to make oddball moves it seems.

Hell, the kid is certainly whiter than my Sicilian grandfather! But I am sure that Rush does not realize that Italians are mostly brown. Take a look at the late Antonin Scalia and tell me that he looked white.

Good point. Rush whom has been married 4 times has been able to get millions of fans across America. I like to look up Irish and Italian Americans who honor the true American family values, some of my older relatives have been In 50+ year marriages. Limbaugh should not throw stones from his glass house. But its amazing isn't it the kind of lifestyle some GOP folks look up to.

What do his marriages have to do with the subject?

Rush claims to be for conservative values. Im not meaning to pass judgment just saying Rush should not throw verbal stones at Obama or Clinton when it comes to moral issues and he often does this.

Why do you think ESPN picked an amateur announcer who was Mexican and talked about diversity live on the air? It seems obvious that ESPN is falling into the "diverse," liberal groupthink, and will trade talent for diverse skin colors.


Do you really think his skin appearance matters? He's Mexican born and raised and his vision of America is the liberal ideal of diversity, immigration, yadda yadda. He had this "agenda" where he would be a Mexican immigrant going on the opening MNF game, talk about diversity, and be a hero for it. You can hear the excitement in his voice. But social media ripped on him because he sucked, and he went on a rant about being a minority.

ESPN probably knew actually what he was going to say. They've gone political and wanted to push the diversity issue since the game also featured the first female announcer/commentator.

I dont mind ESPN celebrating having the Mexican guy and female announcer on mon night.

Liberals built America, Washington, Roosevelt and Lincoln were liberals. You may be surprised though that ESPN recently punished one of its employees for calling Trump a white supremacist.

Was ESPN celebrating it? They had him on, and social media ripped on him. I didn't see ESPN celebrating.

I think you are confusing classical liberalism with modern liberalism. FDR is a modern liberal, sure, but not Washington or Lincoln.
