    This is a tricky situation. Wise ones know to avoid replacing a great where you can because filling big shoes is not ideal. I think they will go with someone less established and on the come up who is hungry for the opportunity.
    I think someone like Ryan Clark could be interesting if chemistry with Skip could work

  • Matt
    Matt 3 months ago +36

    I imagine they split because Shannon is at a stage where he has more intriguing opportunities available to him. I don’t think there’s much true personal beef as much as maybe they aren’t clicking professionally like they had been and now Shannon is at a stage where he can easily move on and they probably came to agree on that. I’ve felt people have cooked up a much bigger issue than has ever really been there with them to me on a personal level. But who knows?

    • siner24

      @I Know More Than You. not necessarily, you know the saying "don't ever go into business with a friend," it's not to say Skip & Shannon were close friends before the show but it's clear the business and the nature of the show caused this rift. Their job has literally been to argue with each other for 7 years, shit is definitely going to get heated at some point. Then you add the business part (it seems the biggest issue was that Shannon wanted more control over the show) and it ends up like this. If Skip and Shannon just talked occasionally and worked in the same building I'm sure they'd still be cool with each-other.

    Respect to wiley for acknowledging the stature of skip, shannon, and the show. Its been cool for people within journalism to pretend like that show is just two guys screaming at each other. The truth is any journalists would love to have a show that allows them to voice their sports opinions for a large audience and with creditable debates.

    • Antwan Dukes

      How can you respect a guy who doesn't know what the hell he's talking about. He said the character grew apart. He must think everybody's dumb or something. That's a lie. It's obvious it was personal.

      Truth is they Skip Bayless is too smart for a guy like Shannon Sharpe. He needs someone on that show who isn’t going to get over emotional like a damn woman and who can give him good arguments ala Wilbon and Kornheiser.
      Sharpe isn’t that guy. He is low iq and an emotional debater. So many times I would see Shannon be completely selfish and self serving while bringing up left wing politics and black issues on a damn sports show while Skip had to nod and agree while staying silent lest he be labeled a racist.
      Skip was basically a hostage to this overgrown child. Now he’s free. Find someone smart and start over.

    • KT R
      KT R 3 months ago +13

      ​@J Jones why do you think that is true when the concensus of everyone who's talking about this breakup, has any connection to Skip, or even Skip him damn self have all openly stated that Skip controls every aspect of the show, down to the topics 😂 How can Shannon hijack the show with left wing politics if Skip came up with the topics? I've watched every episode of Undisputed, and I previously watched every episode of First Take while Skip was there. He has always covered race/social issues in some form or fashion. What are you talking about dude lol

    You're exactly right about the characters beefing. I've done a few shows with some people that wanted to play characters... the problem I find is that, as a character, you're willing to say things that you personally wouldn't. You'll go back to edit and be like, yea, that one has to get cut, just because its too wild of a take and you cringe at it. It's fun to get into character to explore and try different things, but you got to have disciplined to not let it get out of hand, which is a tough thing to do.

    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...

    Hits aren’t hits anymore. Shows included. They’re just meaningful to a few and invisible to the rest. They need to find someone who appeals to the few that draw to Skip Bayless and forget the rest at this point. They wont ever regain the fans they are about to lose when Shannon officially leaves and there is 0 point in trying to convince them to return. Only option now is to lean into Skip 100% and trust that his body of work has garner just enough of a dedicated fanbase to sustain the show going forward. Otherwise this is just a GTA-style, slowed down carwreck for Undisputed.

  • Jared Dawkins
    Jared Dawkins 3 months ago +4

    I believe what will happen is, at some point FS1 is going to start to run through a mini musical chairs of co-hosts with Skip Bayless, then eventually Skip will end up doing that show by himself (like Stephen A Smith did for First Take when they let Max Kellerman go) once realize that they can find a firm permanent replacement for Shannon. Then I think eventually Jen Hale and Skip will end up doing the show themselves. Skip has no one to blame but himself....i could be wrong. But its just a thought

    • Travis09

      De Sava 3 months ago

      @Travis09 he didn’t expect them to outshine him though especially Shannon. Skip felt he was better because he was a seasoned journalist but he was often more biased and tried to hide behind the institution of the profession when he was wrong. Shannon was a hard worker, grind day in and day out and was able to compete with Skip’s journalistic background and he didn’t waiver on integrity. Shannon has character and willingness to be fair. Skip came from an era where it was acceptable to skirt the line and they weren’t called out for it; things have changed now.

    Cris Carter would be a very good replacement for Shannon. However, due to him departing FS1 on disagreeable terms it's not likely to happen.
    Another good choice would be Will Cain who is currently a part of The Fox family via Fox News. He has the credentials for the job from his history of working in sports tv and radio over at ESPN. He appeared on First Take against Stephen A. Smith and others numerous times.

    Joel Klatt would be a good replacement. Nick Wright would also be a good replacement. Networks groom new talent for these big openings all the time. I think Klatt might be better, because like Shannon, he's a former athlete. That dynamic is what made the show so good. Don't know that anyone will ever be as good as Shannon. That's what their real problem is. Lots of people want that job, none as good as Shannon.

    You’re right Michael Irvin would turn that show around. Another strong personality with 3 super bowls, in the hall of fame, and a legend in the game that’s been around on TV for awhile. Yeah that’s the move. Question is does he want to work with Skip after seeing how things played out with Shannon?

    hayden alejandrino 3 months ago

    Well to be fair First take had to try different things to become what it is now; got rid of the 2 man game and went with multiple analysts in rotation. The pressure of finding a cohost speaks a lot about skip because not even Stephen A got the world talking about First Take in transitions.
    Also, the only shows in the same lane are get up, First take, PTI, Undisputed, FTF, SPY. Everything else is a completely different format. Comparing these shows to solo or duo podcast projects are just not the same.
    The focus should be someone with humor yet respectable. Skip could be very polarizing so two hosts that take themselves too serious is a no go.
    A Stephen Jackson perhaps?

      I’m sure Skip will find someone. Remember, Skip made Shannon by choosing him to be his partner on this show. If Skip had not done this, then Shannon would be nothing. This show is all about making outlandish takes. Outside of football, Shannon has no expertise in any other sport - his basketball takes are horrible but he’s entertaining. Skip just needs someone that has personality and that will make crazy takes and the show will be fine.

    Michael Irvin is nowhere as versatile in other sports knowledge . Say what you will, but Shannon is really probably the most well rounded ex athlete of all his peers in the space . If Skip wants a former athlete perspective for an array of sports related issues and play, he's got his work cut out for him .

      It's not that complicated everyone is leaving out the newest name in the game. It will probably take a year or so for everything to work out but by and large Skip's goal is Tom Brady newest former player now stake owner in the raiders stake owner in wnba team avid golfer wouldn't be surprised to see Brady into MLB before too long not to mention Skip's infatuation or bromance with Brady ever since Michigan.

    • bowling 4clarity
      bowling 4clarity 3 months ago

      @jeremy underhill there's NO WAY Brady would even a year or two from retiring as the GOAT qb would want to be on a live debate show the airs at 6 am for 5 days a week . NO WAY this happens. Be realistic . Besides, Skip worships Brady's football IQ too much for it to even be true disagreements which is the actual reason for a show .

    • bowling 4clarity
      bowling 4clarity 3 months ago

      @jeremy underhill even from a personality dynamic, to the reason why Skip vs Stephen A, or Skip vs Shannon works is because Skip's stubborn veracity needs a big voiced counterpart that can't be drowned out . Brady is far light voiced and new to the ranks to be the performer he would need to immediately be .

    • jeremy underhill
      jeremy underhill 3 months ago

      @bowling 4clarity the point your missing is skip wants to groom Brady to do just that and make millions to do it's Skip's way to keep Brady relevant and in the football and sports world as the current greatest QB of all time. Btw Brady is a lot more outspoken than you might think he just has not been in the position to voice it being a player you will see the difference when he starts his broadcasting career.

No doubt Skip can be a pain and he has has his flaws, but the dude is brilliant at what he does. Creating First take and then taking his concept to Fox and making Undisputed, they are both the #1 show on their channel. So whoever he picks has the opportunity to shine and run with it for the rest of their career.

      Because nobody likes skip outside of the people who know him because of his takes
      I like skip I've been a fan of his since 2001
      But his act is running thin on people
      The fact you can't even tweet about him or he doesn't want anyone who can challenge him like SAS or Shannon did really says something about him

    Good luck finding someone to work with Skip. If they do find someone to work with Skip, they are still going to have to get good ratings and have chemistry. With all of that power that the network has given Skip with what seems like no over watch, who would really want to work with him? Joy was use to be on the show also and she left. In my opinion Skip is just to old and stuck in his ways. His mentality seems to be He has all of the accomplishments so he can do what he wants. What helped Shannon blow pass Skip also is that Shannon engages with viewers through social media. Skip has asked Shannon multiple times as to why he does that. Skip's version of engagement is tweet out something and that's it. I'm not saying you have to reply to everything but it helps for viewers to know you will say something if a comment is relevant. When undisputed first came out I would watch the whole show. Now even with Shannon on the show I just watch the first segment because 80% of the time it's the same topics with the same takes. At the end Skip can micro manage all he wants. If that first year goes by and the ratings have dropped, he will then have to worry about the show being canceled.

    I read the comment and some of the reactions are kind of weird if you think about it. For one skip is in his 70s, he’s a made man and elite in success in his profession. Some people are talking about him like his career is over, the guy helped launch both Stephen a smith and sharpe and made them sympathetic when they weren’t really beforehand. Sharpe is the one that has to prove himself without skip just like Stephen a smith did and set out to do. Skip can help launch another star and if he doesn’t then what does he lose? The other co-host will be attached to skip and probably wont reach the peak they had when they we working with skip anyways. Regardless skip made it and has left his mark in his profession. Sharpe made it and has the talent and peoples love to keep going and we’ll see who he works with. It’s up to skip if he wants to create another star, keep
    Working or retire. What else does he have to prove? He is what he is as far as what we think of him. Lebron won’t be jordan most likely and that’s ok, Kobe wasn’t either, curry and Giannis probably won’t be either. Skip keeps working but he doesn’t seem like he has to anymore.they will both still be succeeded without each other
