  Jimmy Garoppolo's dinner date puts brands of himself, 49ers, NFL at risk It's easy to dismiss Jimmy Garoppolo's date with a porn star and assume it will blow over once NFL games begin. But one sports marketing expert thinks damage already has been done.That was the mocking moniker used by FS1's Jason Whitlock about Jimmy Garoppolo this week after the 49ers quarterback's date with adult-film star Kiara Mia. As Whitlock's on-air colleagues chortled, the co-host of "Speak for Yourself" warned Garoppolo, 26, made a mistake in stepping out with the 41-year-old star of the Kim Kardashian porn parody, “Keeping up with Kiara Mia.

ESPN has canceled SportsNation, John Ourand reports for SportsBusiness Journal. In its time slot, 4 pm, will be High Noon with Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre, which will now be 30 minutes instead of an hour (despite not airing at noon anywhere in continental America, it will retain its title).

SportsCenter, with Cari Champion and David Lloyd, will move into the 12-1pm slot, re-launching the Coast-to-Coast show they previously hosted. ESPN studio show boss Norby Williamson told Ourand, Its time had come … This is not an assessment of the show's current staff. It was performing okay."

August 24th will be SportsNation's last day, and the new lineup will be in total effect on September 11th.

ESPN has moved and shortened High Noon after just two months and cancelled SportsNation , making way for a 60-minute noon SportsCenter. Noon SportsCenter is back, and High Noon is now shorter and moved to 4 p.m. Eastern.

ESPN 's talk show " High Noon " featuring Bomani Jones and Pablo Torre is on the move . After two months at its namesake's 12 p.m. ET time slot, the program will be moving to 4 p.m. ET beginning on September 11. The show will be taking the place of " SportsNation ", which will air its final episode on

SportsNation had gone through numerous iterations since it launched in 2009 with Colin Cowherd and Michelle Beadle; Beadle returned to the program in 2014, and left early this year to join Get Up.

The key takeaway from this is that SportsCenter, after years of attrition to debate or other talk (for example: I would qualify High Noon as conversation, not debate), is making a comeback in ESPN. Even before it met its fate, it felt like SportsNation had moved almost to a SportsCenter format. High Noon will no longer have the First Take lead-in.

As Ourand noted, producer Erik Rydholm now has all of the shows he oversees - High Noon, Highly Questionable, Around the Horn, and Pardon the Interruption - in a two-hour block in daily afternoons.

Ravens have not yet decided to keep Robert Griffin III .
NFL teams are facing a deadline in about a week that will include them having to cut their rosters down from 90 to 53 in the lead up to Week 1. We’re certainly going to see a ton of activity on that front, including multiple quarterbacks being given their pink slips. One notable quarterback who might be released is Baltimore Ravens backup Robert Griffin III. Having played well thus far this preseason, the former No. 2 overall pick is still not guaranteed a roster spot.“There’s no question that the best quarterback thing to do would be to keep Robert Griffin.
