Colin Cowherd has never been shy about expressing his opinion on – anything. The former ESPN and now Fox Sports 1 pontificator launched into the hottest of hot takes over the weekend when he said the self-proclaimed world-wider leader is losing talent because of …
Bristol, Connecticut, the home of ESPN.
The New York Post quoted Cowherd as saying:
“[Keith] Olbermann didn’t want to live there. [Bill] Simmons didn’t want to live there. You didn’t want to live there. I didn’t want to live there,” Cowherd said. “The seven bosses that worked for us at FOX didn’t want to live there. It has become a huge unspoken disadvantage. … Anybody we want, we get. Why?
