For more than six years, Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe have shared the airwaves.

Shannon was chosen by Bayless as his broadcast partner when he made the decision to quit ESPN. The dynamic these two have has made Undisputed a huge hit overall. Shannon provides a distinct viewpoint as a professional athlete, whereas Skip represents the old guard of hot-take sellers. He is also incredibly engaging, and viewers adore listening to him speak on the program. But not everything that glitters is inherently gold, particularly in light of recent events.

Sharpe and Bayless found themselves at variance over the course of what felt like back-to-back weeks. First, there was the episode in which Bayless compared Shannon to Tom Brady. This caused a lot of controversy because many people thought it was totally tasteless. The Damar Hamlin episode came next. An on-air argument resulted from Shannon taking issue with Skip’s tweet regarding the Hamlin medical situation. Some people demanded Sharpe quit Undisputed after these incidents. However, Sharpe made it plain in a conversation with Adam Schein that he is standing by his man.

What Sharpe has with Bayless resembles a marriage in Sharpe’s views. He didn’t want to let those difficult few weeks ruin their otherwise wonderful relationship, as he explained to Schein. He said, “I wasn’t going to let two bad months ruin six years of a wonderful working relationship.” “Our working rapport is excellent.” Additionally, Sharpe revealed that he and Skip aren’t pals off the set. However, this has nothing to do with how much he values his coworker. We are not particularly close, but I believe that helps our relationship on-air, Sharpe said. “He has no idea of what I’m thinking or what I’m planning to say.”

It’s encouraging to see that Skip and Shannon will continue to host their program. In the end, it would be a genuine loss if Undisputed were to end. Shannon appears to have a strategy, in contrast to the supporters’ desire to overreact. However, he will be alright on his own if he ultimately decides to part ways with Skip.
