    Sharpe’s final show is expected to be after the 2023 NBA Finals conclude in June.

    I’m going to miss Shannon on this show. I really think that stretch between November and January really caused genuine friction between the two. Ever since the solo Skip Bayless episode they haven’t really gone at it like they had in the previous 6 years or so. I want these two to succeed, they became a weekday routine to watch for almost 7 years. I’ll definitely miss Shannon

      I remember when Shannon Sharpe played on the Broncos and the Ravens. He was the best TE in the game before Tony Gonzalez emerged. Unlike so many of these other TV personalities that are corporate puppets, he's always kept it real, and that's the reason that Undisputed was popular from the day it premiered. They're not going to be able to replace him.

      The answer is the Shannon built his brand off the hype of the show and probably realize he could do a Pat Mac type of show and make way more money and have complete control. Has nothing to do with Skip beef. He just knows he can make more podcasting or doing his own daily show.

      @Dynasty If that’s the case that’s rare. When I caught a glimpse of Skip Bayless from prior broadcast he made valid points with fact that many knew from spectating. He also contrasted those facts with speculation to attract a distracted consumer proving to be a worthy host of the broadcast. But the first time I noticed Shannon Sharp discuss basketball……I turned the television off. He was clearly there to make a fool of himself and his stuttering is in hilarious punchlines of the emcee in how he calls Skip’ name more than a woman in crisis.😎

They showed up, even during the Pandemic, they were committed to a great show, I wish them all the best. Of all the sport talk shows, This was #1....

      @Mike Anike I guess that’s your take . Yeah he’s country but it is what it is . He still well spoken even for a country man . BLM isn’t not the only reason we watch him . He’s funny and is well spoken . He’s actually good at his job . I just don’t like the fact that he’s in love with Lebron . But at times he’s able to be fair and give a fair take on Lebron and the lakers . I hate that they talk about the same topics every day . But that’s every other sports talk shows too.

      @Mike Anike Shannon is also actually a entertaining guy that will just speak his own point of view even if people don’t agree. Skip is the same and that’s why the show worked and also why it finally came to an end because they both say wile things.

  • Davvion Thompson
    Davvion Thompson 3 місяці тому +11

    Shannon’s podcast is growing (he is taking it with him). Skip speaks as if talking about sports makes him understand the athlete’s mindset. That friction started when skip said Tom Brady was a better football player than Shannon. It boiled over with Damar Hamlin. Undisputed ratings will crash and burn without Shannon. Shannon isn’t just leaving the show, he is leaving the network. I wonder if he’ll be done with tv, if not I imagine he’ll be a sought after commodity!

  • John Bean
    John Bean 3 місяці тому +6

    The Tom Brady argument was the final straw. Skip got personal and called Shay jealous of Tom. That was crossing the line. The Hamlin argument was Shay continuing to hold Skip accountable for being a selfish jerk. If he hadn't had that argument about Brady, I bet he would have smoothed things over ith Skip over Hamlin.

  • amck72

  • WhiteMamba24Xe
    WhiteMamba24Xe 3 місяці тому +30

    This has been brewing up for awhile now. Especially within the last 7-8 months.
    -It all started with the one Tom Brady segment. Where Skip told Shannon he was jealous of Tom Brady, Tom was playing at 45 and Shannon had to quit at 35. Which pissed off Shannon to no ends. The constant disrespect and personal shots Bayless would take at Shannon for criticizing Brady.
    -The Baker Mayfield segments would get pretty heated as well between the two. Constant shouting and bickering over a subpar quarterback.
    -The straw that broke the camels back was the damar Hamlin situation. Skip sent out the tweet, Shannon was so Pissed that he refuses to come into work the next day. When he returned he tried to explain his absence, and Skip kept cutting him off.
    Ever since Shannon returned after missing that show, the show hasn’t been the same. It hasn’t had the same feel, the dynamic between Skip and Shannon has really gone down hill. And it’s such a shame bc they were great together. A great pairing of minds
    It’s also reported that there was some friction between Shannon and Fs1. Fs1 was upset with Shannon over a few incidents. The on-court drama with the Memphis Grizzle’s, the Brett Favre lawsuit, the spat with Kwame Brown. It was also rumored that Shannon is pissed with the lack of equal representation on undisputed . With regards to the topics that are selected and debated. As Skip pretty much picks all the topics and Shannon has little to no say, and Skip obviously has more pull to get his way. Also Skip was getting paid more than he was .
    Shannon is a big name, with a big brand and wildly successful podcast, and a meme machine. Wherever he ends up, he will be a great addition for whoever locks him up. A few questions remains tho
    Would Shannon end up on another network like ESPN for example??? Just imagine a debate with Shannon, Stephen A and Perk about Lebrons legacy.
    Also what happens with Undisputed??? Skip is signed til March 2025, Undisputed is Fs1s highest rated debate show. I doubt Fs1 cancels it. Who’s gonna replace Shannon and sit across from Skip on Undisputed for the foreseeable future???

      @Voice of Reason it’s possible. But I’m saying it all really started going down hill in November of 2022, when they had a Tom Brady Segoe ent where Skip mocked and disrespected Shannon with the “he’s playing at 45, and you had to quit at 35” comment. Skip also telling Shannon that he has no right to criticize Brady and how Brady was way better than him (also in the same segment)

    The show had been getting a little stale for me. I wouldn't go a day without missing segments and podcasts, but even before the Damar issue, it was just the same formula. Pose the question, Shannon goes first, Skip second, rinse and repeat. Cowboys, Brady, Lebron, Rodgers, Mahomes, Luka. The best part for me became the Dew bets and Shannon carried the show IMO.
    I'm a huge fan of First Things First now. That trio and their segments are top notch.

Hope Shannon ends up om another network with a partner that appreciates him because I'll definitely be watching that instead of undisputed.

    Part of it may be pay & say plus a huge opportunity offered to Shannon. Shannon should get as much as Skip gets & should have some say over program content since they collaborate. I honestly believe Skip has no problem with this because he & Shannon remain mutually respectful of each other. I believe the issue is the direction the network wants to go. They want something like SAS's talk show which has Joy & a variety of guest hosts to boost ratings. Happy for Shannon, sad for Skip but nearly 7 years was a pretty good run for the two

    I think really you could say it happened in 3 stages
    1. When Skip talked about Shannon’s career (quite disrespectfully tbh)
    2. Damar Hamlin topic
    3. Recently I think Shanon was too emotional responding to Kwarme (nothing to do with Skip).
    I think out of all 3 the first was the worst tho

      @Zach Bowman it was. All I keep remembering is Shannon saying “I’m in the F’n hall of fame!” I was with Shanon for that one. I think after that he let his emotions get the better of him and that’s why he reacted at the Grizzlies game and why he responded to Kwame. Anyway I’m a big fan of Unc and he’s an open book that wears his heart on his sleeve. At least he’s honest and I wish him success

    Skip is just an insanely rude and stubborn person. Shannon knew what he was getting into and he's just probably tired of dealing with him. I think the Demar Hamlin tweet was way over blown. Skip truly did not mean that tweet to read the way everyone took it. He was just too stubborn to apologize for it. Sucks. This was a great show and it's all gone now.

    Believe it or not...there was friction way before this. Shannon got along very well with the previous moderator, Jenny Taft. Skip had a few run-ins with her on the air, and I bet my momma's life he was nasty to her behind the scenes, and pushed her out as well. This had to have rubbed Shannon the wrong way. He knew it was only a matter of time before Skip turned on him, too. Skip is detested by those who work with him--dating back to his ESPN days. There have been articles written about his pettiness and childish vendettas.

    People being mad disrespectful too Skip. People forget that Skip told ESPN and Fox to hire both SAS and Shannon. Sure they had the resume , but they also got the referral. Don’t matter if you disagree with skip, he’s self made and will continue to have a successful career.

      @lamar johnson the same can be made the other way around . Undisputed wouldn’t be the same without Skip. Just like First take was NEVER the same when skip left. ESPN didn’t know who to partner up with SAS and they still don’t. It’s awkward now. They got a different dudes going against sas smith because they still don’t know who to hire full time.

    No, it wasn’t the Hamlin situation. It was the Brady show. When Shannon said “I’m a hall of famer “ Skip said “so what”

  • Robert Hall

    It boiled over before the Damar Hamlin situation. Skip took several personal shots at Shannon’s Hall of Fame career in advocating for Tom Brady. Also note, Skip had alienated the previous moderator Jenny Taft on air. This rift started wayyyy before the Hamlin tweet.

    I think Shannon started to realised people might not take him seriously anymore if he continues to work with skip. Some of Skip’s opinions don’t validate a barber shop entry let alone a media member card.

    I truly hope this is a social media trick of some kind, but for the life of me I TRULY HOPE IN MY HEART OF HEARTS THIS IS NOT TRUE😲😲; PLEASE DON'T LEAVE SHANNON 🙏🙏🙏🙏 I know that situation back in January was gut-wrenching for you to say the least_ but y'all look like y'all have done sooo much better with each other lately and it's been absolutely WONDERFUL TO WATCH!!!👏👏👏👌👌On top of that, football is only 2-3 months away....!!🧐 The NFL is going to be waaaaaay too good this season to not have your insight shower the stage every week in all it's glory!! PLEASE PLEASE PLEEEEEASSE DON'T LEAVE SHANNON; YOU ARE THE KLAY THOMPSON OF THIS SHOW AND IT COULD/WILL NEVER EVER BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU....!!!!💯💯🙏🙏 Time will ultimately answer this question, but if nothing else, at least stay till after football season is over......🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏

      @Lamar T This is not about Kwamé or nothing debatable, It’s about how Skip blatantly disrespected Shannon to support Tom Brady, basically saying that Shannon’s not shit and he just jealous because Brady played longer than him and his HOF status means nothing. Everyone seen TB playing like crap but Shannon jealous was his comeback. What? YOU THINK HE WAS LETTING THAT SLIDE? You dont even get the racial undertone of this do you? You’re so caught up in the back n forth yelling that the bs flew over your head?

    It was time for a change. Whether people like it or not , it is Skip's show just as First Take is SAS's show . Personally I do not really like either show save in small doses because I think they underestimate the listners' capicity for substantive discussions as opposed to hot takes. At times both Shannon and Skip were capable of thoughtful comments but over the past year it seemed like more like satire . They both knew it was time to part ways. .......Now about having Barkley sit opposite Skip

      Nick talks even longer than Shannon and isn't nowhere near funny. Skip should retire and give his wife time and enjoy life and sleep. He doesn't have children so dedicating even more years to this, why? His podcast isn't of the times because he sits there and has a 70's flow about it and it shows he doesn't have modern day swag that a podcast takes snd Shannon's soul brother awareness carries this show 90% we are tired of the Cowboys takes LeBron hate & Jordan can do no wrong & hasn't played in 20 years. You'd think the Cowboys & Jordan was in the Bible how he carries on about them. A tv show will give Shannon a big contract and let him be him with the cigars the hen dog and yak & give him a smoother debater and kill the industry!

    Dang dude. It won't be the same. I love Skip and Shannon both equally. Skip, a Cowboys fan and occasional A-hole. Shannon, a Cowboys HATER and tries to be the voice of reason. They balanced each other out. It was a well-blended mixture that cannot be topped. Sucks that it has to end =/ This was the best NFL commentator show out there, period. Stephen A Smith when Michael Irvin joins the set is a close second, but this WAS the best. I can't imagine it improving now

    I made sure I would watch the show after a Laker loss or a Cowboys loss. It was pure entertainment to see Shannon as a die hard Lebron Supporter and Skip as a Lover of the Cowboys defend their positions in the face of reality. At the end of the day, I'm sure they can find some other loudmouth to pair with Skip and make this entertaining. No big loss to tell you the truth. There are many guys who could step in and do what these clowns get paid millions to do.

If anything dude should’ve pointed to the recent Tom Brady segment that went left.. You can tell they just put some random ass dude out there to talk about this.. not knowing anything about the show lmao smh

    It was getting tedious. Many of the topics were worthy of discussion especially when they revolved around matters of race and class.

    I think Shannon got fed up with Skip's trolling and contrarian "persona" on the show. The Damar Hamlin incident is probably the straw that broke the camel's back.
    While Skip can be entertaining at times, his constant nitpicking of LeBron James, endless excuses as to why the Dallas Cowboys lose, unrequited love of Kevin Durant, etc. probably caused Shannon Sharpe to say "no mas".

    I don’t understand why they have these shows in the first place like (undisputed) or (first take) if only one opinion matters most of the time specially when it comes to the second party like Shannon and Max the minute those guys were getting good at their jobs this is when jealousy plays in who cares who had the last word in any given day what really matters is the consistent of the show it disappointed that it’s always the same drama, who ever the show replace it’s still going to be the same story.

    I wish the best for both of these guys, but Shannon is definitely my favorite, Skip acts like a petulant child when he doesn’t get his way and it starts to become irritating after awhile , I’m sure Shannon is tired of the disrespect and hopefully moves on to greener pastures.
