Well the rumors were true that ESPN was looking to unload bass. I can't say that I am disappointed because I had grown disappoined with how ESPN was handling BASS. I think new ownership will probably be a good thing. Unfortunately the rumors about the BASS sale involving the Outdoor Channel seems to be false. ESPN will still air the Bassmasters TV Show.
It sure sounds like the new ownership is getting into this as much for love and passion for the sport as they are in it for making money. Hopefully they will continue and enhance Fantasy Bass Fishing. It will also be interesting to see what they do with Bassmaster.com and the Insider.
