    Everyone forgets Skip picked Shannon Sharpe to be his counterpart. Skip knew Shannon would take it seriously and he did. He took the opportunity given and ran with it. I enjoy Shannon Sharpe's opinion and delivery a lot more than Skips. I dont even agree with Shannon on a lot of his opinions but I enjoy hearing his reasoning for it,

      There were a few episodes of first take shortly before skip left where Stephen a wasn’t there for whatever reason and they had Shannon fill in. It was hilarious when I learned they were doing a show together.

    I don't blame Shannon. I tried to listen to 5 minutes of Skip's solo show and that's when you realize that Shannon makes Undisputed tolerable and Shannon solo is superb! His solo podcast is crushing it

    • Majin
      Majin 3 months ago +3

      P. Delor, Sr. so you do not understand the dynamic of the show do you? skip works as a heel and instigator to set the hero up for success and make the pawns watch how teh hero (mostly) defeats the bad guy. Skip is everything a large part of america hates. a brash old white guy while Shay is everybodies darling. the handsome tall muscular black dude ... The hate or despise for Skips creates a huge gap in likability presenting Shannon incredibly favorably. Shannon is a made man himself but in terms of public image Skip created that for him to a large degree. Not sure if you will understand but atleast i tried to explain

    • T Bates

    Undisputed was a good show. Took me from First Take…but honestly it was Shannon who I watched for. Wherever Unc goes, I will watch. He is just as good a tv personality as he was the HOF player. Shannon, Pat and Colin, and Smith are the Mount Rushmore of sports talk

    When Shannon took the opportunity when Skip went to back for him and did their first show I was hooked. It’s been amazing to hear Shannon’s opinion and bring entertainment to the show. It was a hell of Tun but we all have our feeling about Skip period.

    • Kevin Schart

    Beyond the Damar Hamlin tweet, there a number of other things Skip said that Shannon got pissed about. One that was completely over the top is when Skip said the reason Shannon is so critical of Tom Brady is because he’s jealous that Brady had a better career. I watched that segment live and you could tell Shannon was really mad and hurt. Skip wasn’t joking either. That clearly wasn’t a work.

    ill never forget watching that day of undisputed when skip practically called Unc a bum for criticizing Brady's bad season. everyone who has consistently watched, knew right then and there Shannon reached his breaking point and skip showed how low he's willing to go for tom Brady. I remember rewatching the video on Clip-Share and the comments being flooded with messages along the lines of "Shannon will be leaving undisputed mark my words". And now that day has come. RIP undisputed was a fun entertaining 7 years no matter which way you look at it or how you view either host/analyst of the show. Wish Shannon nothing but the best in his next ventures, cya Unc💪

    • Kevin Schart
      Kevin Schart 3 months ago +12

      It was a cheap shot and a low blow. Shannon has always shown Skip respect, and never once hinted that Skip's opinions were invalid because he never played competitively. How Skip felt that is was ok to do that is beyond me.

    • king bean
      king bean 3 months ago +1

      @Kevin Schart easy skip doesn’t care. He’s a made man with or without Shannon. Doing the show or retiring off into the sunset. What else is there for Skip to do?

    • skillethead15
      skillethead15 3 months ago +2

      @king bean Skip doesn’t want to retire off into the sunset because he wants to stay relevant in the media. It’s not even about money anymore because I’m sure he has plenty of it. And the man is over 70 years old. It’s about the power to sway opinions and have a voice for people to listen to. Skip strikes me as the kind of person who is going to be in the media until his body won’t allow him anymore.

    Shannon Sharpe has often mentioned how Skip Bayless helped him at a low point in his career. I believe he hadn't forgotten this & is forever grateful to Skip. I am sure the two have remained friends & that he spoke about his leave taking privately with Skip before hinting at, and then making the big announcement. I will miss Skip & Shannon as a team although I suppose change was inevitable. Undisputed was an enjoyable show for me. I do hope both Skip and Shannon continue to prosper & have a good life whatever direction they take...

    Shannon actually stayed longer than he should've. Skip has been so disrespectful and belittling to Shannon in more ways than one. What I couldn't stand is him always interrupting Shannon and never admitting when he's wrong. Shannon was the life of that show. All the best to Unc in his next endeavours.

  • Nick

    Skip is polarized and can be difficult to like or agree with, but he has incredible talents that won’t be shut down by the exodus of an amazing co-host. He’s amazing at finding the exact right talent that fullfills the ying to his Yang. Undisputed is a well respected show that will continue as scheduled.

    It’s been 7 years, some things just run their course. They’re obviously tight off the air, Shannon has said that publicly many times even after the more heated on air stuff in the last couple of months and the Damar Hamlin disaster. But he’s 54 years old, he doesn’t want to spend the rest of his life at that desk debating Skip. He’ll be great in whatever he does next and Skip will continue to dominate morning sports debates.

    I personally really liked Undisputed. I think this had more to do with off-the-show type of stuff behind the scenes between the two. I know they had their issues on air, but that was also the point of the show, lol. Sometimes things got a little out of hand, but that was few and far between.

      Skip crossed the line a few times. They were debating Tom Brady and Gronk on one show and Skip basically told Shannon his opinion didn't matter because he was never as great as Brady and Gronk, which was a slap in the face because Shannon Sharpe isn't Dan Orlovsky or Chris Simms.

    Definitely the damar thing was a problem and lit the fuse..but the blow up was when Skip tried to belittle Shannon's career and tell him he's jealous of Tom bradys success. That moment was the only moment I've seen between them that I thought breached sports debate.
    You could visually see that inside Shannon wanted to CLOBBER skip..but knew better of it..remembering what grandma and grandpa told him.

  • Vortex Athletic FC
    Vortex Athletic FC 3 months ago +17

    To be fair to Skip, the whole country forgot how to read with that whole Twitter thing. Yeah, he worded it badly; but he was just genuinely curious on what the NFL would do. He wasn’t saying that they should keep playing. And no one else reads the good tweets that he put before hand on his timeline, only the one badly worded one that went viral.

    I think Chris Broussard would be the perfect partner for skip because he can argue but will keep it respectful and isn’t a former athlete so it will be different. The only problem is I’m not sure about his football opinions but for basketball it would be great. Another option would be shady but the former athlete has already been done with Shannon

  • Inoke Taufalele
    Inoke Taufalele 3 months ago +186

    The day after the Damar incident, Shannon was a no show, then when he did come the day after that, in his opening monologue he explained about his brother when he was lying on the field when he suffered his career ending injury so that’s why Skips comments rubbed Shannon the wrong way, and Skip interrupted the whole thing to get something in and Shay just stopped and asked to start the show, a couple of other things happened before this too but it’s been building up for the last half year

    • BigBaller666
      BigBaller666 3 months ago +54

    Shannon should do a similar show as "First Take" with his own brother Sterling. They both are extremely well spoken and have very assertive voices. Plus with it being 2 brothers they have built in chemistry off the bat.

    I’m so bummed, it’s my favorite show after this progrum. But Skip absolutely deserved it…I just wish he would’ve realized before it was too late.
    I hope and pray that Skip doesn’t replace Shannon with ANYONE on the current FS1 roster. Acho, Wright, Shady, Bucher, JMac…all terrible and unbearable. He better think outside the box if he wants to keep that show going.
    Shannon will be just fine, he’s electric

    PANDA 3 months ago

    There's been a lot of friction between Skip and Shannon the last year or 2. I think some of Skip's somewhat downright disrespectful takes really frustrated Shannon.
    But it really started boiling over when Skip took a shot at Shannon's playing career, when he compared Shannon to Brady. I think Shannon took real offense to that.
    Then the Damar Hamlin situation was the final straw.
    You can tell they hashed it out the way Skip has pulled back on some of his takes, especially in regards to Lebron ever since. But too little too late it seems.

    I'm surprised it's actually happening, but I can't blame Shannon and would likely do the same in his position. Skip has been very disrespectful to him multiple times now and he will be the most coveted free agent in sports media.

    Shannon always said he owes skip everything for his post playing career and won't talk bad or bite the hand that fed him... I think that's genuine, and he is reaching a point where he resents skip and knows he won't be able to maintain that professionalism. It's not like he can't do it anymore, but he also has just had too many bad moments to feel like he can be grateful to share a stage with him and doesn't want to be in the position skip put him in if he can't

    I know the ratings probably don't show it up but over the last 8 years Undisputed was thing I have always felt that the team was the better show than First Take was. Shannon himself gave so many culture moments that are still being used today. I do think that big cable sports entertainment will probably move away from giving journalists or journalists types shows and give them to former players. Not saying it won't be there but personalities like that will live on youtube or podcast and develop their own niche. Example Brandon Perna, Grossi, The Ringer, etc.

    Skip and Shannon are both super hard workers and super entertaining personalities. I truly think skip is a good person, although sometimes his age shines through and he comes off as very insensitive even though that’s not really true. I do think he has a ton of empathy for people on a personal level, he just tends to either poorly word/time some of the things he says or he gets so invested in his opinion that in the moment he dismisses other people. But people forget, this guy is live on air every day for years and years and years and it is him straight up almost uncensored. Everyone gets hot or says something extra from time to time and he’s no exception. The crazier thing is Shannon’s ability to hold his tongue in almost every moment and carefully choose most of his words while still maintaining his charm, that’s a special ability of his and that is what helped him get so far. Shannon is super entertaining with a huge personality and a great energy while still showing he is both intelligent and prepared. And skip helped build him up and get him ready as a tv persona to be able to go off on his own and be super successful. Skip himself is already a staple in the industry and may be the single most valuable sports media member out there, right next to Stephen A and Cowherd. Im pretty certain those two are still on good terms and they both love respect and appreciate each other for all the help, support, and success they’ve brought to one another. It’s just a shame that it’s ending this way. Honestly if they had a better moderator I think it would have been much smoother

    Yea if you watch days after the Damar Hamlin thing you could see the tension, even in the beginning monologue Skip interrupted Shannon and ticked him off, and the Dec 22nd show last year talking about the Bucs was the segment where Skip highly disrespected Sharpe's HOF career and really had him heated.

    The issue with this breakup is that Skip is - from what we know - in a better position. Why? Because Skip, over the years with Shannon and even before with Stephen A., always took the "ridiculous" position on the show, which allowed someone like Stephen A. or Shannon to be the eloquent one, spitting facts, backing it up with stats. Latter is the "easy" one. People dont see how great Skip is for entertainment television. Yes, he will never be seen as a true journalist or respected by most professional athletes, yet he creates a show, he tells a story. It is amazing that he managed to be this tv persona for such a long time and somehow managed to make the most ludicrous positions and arguments look somewhat valid.

    Watched skip and Shannon since day 1. Shannon was great for entertainment but every episode it seemed he either disrespected other players and has even advocated violence on multiple occasions AND he’s the one who started throwing his career in skips face BEFORE skip fired back with Brady being better. Shannon also got butthurt with the Damar Hamlin tweet from skip that everyone misread and Shannon literally made a joke before about the Dolphins player.
    Prime example of Shannon’s character, look at how he acted in public trying to fight an nba player and then bragged about it afterwards.
    I enjoyed watching Shannon on the show for entertainment but overall he was a hypocrite.

    If Pat McAfee and/or Barstool want to make a MASSIVE move, they need to back up the Brinks Truck for Shannon and get him on board. Would make the PMS audience even bigger and add a lot of entertainment to the show. Or could be a whole new show just for Shannon. He’s a top tier media talent.

      What? No he’s not. People appreciate him sure, but you actually believe that there are a lot of people who will follow SS no matter where he goes?
      You’re out of your mind. 90% of people who watched that show to begin with, and there weren’t many the ratings are out there, watched it for Skip (or at least to see Skip get beat up on).
      Shannon isn’t polarizing. He doesn’t have a devout following. He’s not COMPLETELY replaceable, but he’s absolutely not a top tier media talent. And whoever they decide to replace him with, unless they’re TERRIBLE, ratings won’t really be affected as long as they play the “counter-skip” role well.
      Top tier media talents are guys like Tucker Carlson, who has 4x the number of Twitter followers as SS. Skip has twice as many followers and draws way more headlines, and he probably isn’t even considered a top media talent anymore this isn’t 10 years ago.
      Nobody cares about legacy TV personalities anymore.

    But without Skip picking Shannon to sit across from him, Shannon might have not got to where he is, or it might have taken him a lot to longer.

    I thought Skips constant "tell me when it's my turn" whiny interruptions in the time prior began chipping away at Sharpe's patience, building like a powder keg and just blew up with that Brady thing. Though patched up, their working relationship was seriously damaged, but the Hamlin thing happened just seemed to reopen an unhealed wound and made things irreparable. It's clearly Skip's show, but he treated Shannon and Jenny Taft like they didn't matter...which is why I wasn't shocked she left, or why Joy Taylor never returned. Whoever takes Shannon's place better be ready to talk about the same, rinse and repeat topics of Skip's narrow focus, but congrats to Shannon for finally hitting that eject button and bailing out.

People just read it the wrong way. And it kind of bothers me people think Skip is so bad of a human being that they can confidently say his tweet was implying he didn’t care about that man’s life on the field. We can’t live in a world where society is able to twist your words then demand an apology for something you never truly said.
