On September 19th, Michelle Beadle went on the Sports Media Watch Podcast to 'talk about her ideas for expanding her role at the network.' A week later...The Crossover was cancelled. Here’s what Beadle told Keith Thibault and Ken Fang, according to The Big Lead: “I love what we’re doing now, but then again I’m not an idiot. I realize we’re on a network that is new and struggling and we don’t get a lot of promotion. So I kind of battle with that every day. Do I fight the good fight and promote the show on my own? Do I just give up and act like a whiny person? It’s interesting, but we have such a good crew and they work hard.” “I look at Twitter now and I think, ‘You know what, I’ve got more followers on Twitter than the network gets viewers. There’s got to be a way to turn that into eyes on the show.’ So that’s kind of where I am now. I hate it because it’s going to be so self-promoting, but I’m starting to realize if you don’t do that then it’s hard to complain after the fact.” “I didn’t really get into having my own show to always be put on the backburner. It’s frustrating. It’s hard to get to some sort of regularity, the times change and we’re all over the place … [the show airs] every day except days when sailing, soccer and/or bike racing [are on].” So what happened? Jason McIntyre says sources indicate Sam Flood, the executive producer of NBC Sports and the NBC Sports Network, got pissed. How pissed? The douchejuice told Richard Sandomir of the New York Times before he told Beadle that the show was canned. Jason also indicates rumors abound that Michelle's exit may be imminent. **Follow us on Twitter, View via Our Mobile Site, or Return to BobsBlitz.comFollow us on Twitter.
