The debate is the story in this fast-paced, half-hour series hosted by former Washington Post sportswriters Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon.

Other sports reporters appear as guests and offer opinions on the top stories of the day.

The topics covered in this hourlong weekday show are chosen by fans via ESPN.com's SportsNation site, and viewers are able to interact with the hosts before, during and after the show by email, text, Twitter or just making a phone call. Included is discussion of the smaller stories that people are taking about on the Internet but often aren't seen on TV.
Host Bob Ley investigates sports issues off the field. The series covers a range of sports and controversies, correspondents share inspirational or sensational stories and Ley reads viewer e-mails on a variety of topics.
