Tired of ESPN



Not a new topic, but i'm so pissed off i have to say something, been very quiet in recent years but i've been a member of BSD since 2 websites ago, and check in every day.

Those that recognise me know that i'm not an Alumni nor in any way connected to Penn State. I'm just a Canadian guy that 18 yrs ago arbitrarily made a decision with his brother to support the best College Sports teams in the world!

We've poured our hearts and soles into cheering for the Lions, but to be honest I am a fan of all sports. In recent years ESPN has done such a good job of cover the world of sports (including Cricket, rugby, rowing, gymnastics, tennis etc...) that it has become my main outlet for sports info. For years i've been disgruntled by the CFB coverage, but still recognised it as a solid secondary source behind BSD for breaking news.

But I am at my limit of ESPN dragging JoePa thru the mud and simultaneously spraying his name around their headlines just to get views. I get that that is there business, but I am done with it, and although my small voice and 20 hits a day wont even register for them, I wont be going back to espn for some time. Definitely months probably years.

That's it and thanks for listening to my crazy ramblings, We ARE and will always be....Penn STATE!!!
