    It was the most talked about Sports show when it was airing because of its harsh and shocking "realism" of the National Football League behind the scenes. The only season of the show finished its season all the way to the end before the show was cancelled for its negitive view of Professional football. Drug deals, sex scandals, and even a little bit of football thrown into the mix makes for an exciting drama series from ESPN.

    ESPN
    From the producer of The Apprentice and Survivor comes a new unscripted series that will launch a competitive search for the next boxing superstar. The Contender will follow 16 aspiring boxers from training camp through an evolving series of ring challenges and boxing matches over 16 episodes. For the first eight episodes, the winner of the fight-of-the-week will be rewarded with a guaranteed spot in the Quarter Finals. After four weeks of these Quarter Finals, two weeks of Semi-Finals will follow. In the show's last week, the final victor will claim a $1,000,000 prize. The driving force behind the series will be the pursuit of the American dream and the natural trials, tribulations and heartbreak inherent in that quest combined with the drama and tension of the sweet science. The canvas of the show is much broader than boxing - it will give viewers a first hand look into the real life hopes, triumphs and defeats of the contestants. The Contender will be a joint production of Mark Burnett Productions, DreamWorks Television and Rogue Marble. Sylvester Stallone, Mark Burnett, and Jeffrey Katzenberg are the executive producers. NBC cancelled The Contender in May of 2005 after only one season. After three months of shopping around, Mark Burnett finally sold it to ESPN. The sports cable channel will begin airing the series in the Spring of 2006. ESPN has the option of picking the series up for an extra two seasons.

    X Games 11 is being held at various venues in Los Angeles, California from August 4-7.
    The top athletes and newest up-and-comers will highlight their skill and daring in this extreme sports contest that brings competition to a whole new level. Events include BMX Freestyle Vert, Moto X, Skateboard Street and Vert competitions for both men and women, SuperMoto X, Wakeboarding, and Surfing.
    The X Games concept was conceived in 1993 by EPSN through a desire to host a gathering of the top action athletes, showcasing unique and daring sports for an audience that was craving something different. The first event, called The Extreme Games, was held in Rhode Island in 1995. The turn out from spectators and sponsors was so strong that ESPN decided to launch another Extreme Games the following summer and scrapped plans for holding the event every two years. In 1996 the name was officially changed to the X Games and plans for a winter installment were announced.
    Now, almost ten years later the X Games has grown into an international event with spectators and participants from around the globe.moreless
