    ESPN reportedly replaces Sage Steele after calls for boycott

    Sage Steele is being replaced at ESPN ahead of the NBA playoffs.

    Steele recently found herself under fire for complaining about protests against Donald Trump as well as for an abrupt end to an interview with Arcade Fire lead singer Win Butler when Butler started to voice his political views.

    Viewers called for a boycott of “NBA Countdown” in protest of Steele’s behavior.

    I have to agree with you there. Barkley is constantly saying some foul mess. I guess he keeps it about basketball. Naww, Barkley covers all arena's. I was never a fan of Sage anyway. Not a fan of any of the female seat fillers that are on these programs but don't talk sports. They tend to just give statistics or ask questions.

    Barkley works for a different company. TNT. Steele was with ESPN.
