The View, only with men and about sports, doesn’t sound so much like The View at all. But it’ still an idea that ESPN considered but ultimately rejected, according to a report this week. 

The sports website The Big Lead reported Monday that a top programming executive at the Worldwide Leader, Jamie Horowitz, considered developing a concept for a panel series on the network, based on The View, with star ESPN columnist Bill Simmons and controversial sports commentator Jason Whitlock among the panelists.

The idea has been shelved, due to Simmons proclaiming himself “not interested” and Whitlock “lukewarm” to the idea.
