In the past few years ESPN has become Hitler-esque in the world of sports. They can control any sports governing body at nearly any time for their benefit. ESPN controls the personalities on the network so bad that some have even decided to leave the network(Dan Patrick).
Many people may have noticed this in the past but ESPN focuses more on the larger market teams than they do smaller markets such as Kansas City, Milwaukee, and even Atlanta. They would much rather cover what that Yankees are doing than they would the Brewers.
“Well listened to” radio host and former ESPN employee Dan Patrick has many times commented on-air the controlling aspects of his former employer. Repeatedly he has stated that they controlled his life and schedule and that he never got to spend time with his family. Thats when Patrick decided to leave the network and pursue his own career without the help of ESPN.
With the NFL lockout now over, many tune to ESPN to catch up on signings and trades. The NFL insiders on this network claim that they can find out any news at anytime but if you ever notice when news breaks they always say “according to sources” or “sources close to…” without ever giving credit to the source that broke the news. ESPN rarely finds the info on trades and signings first but when they do…they love to brag about it.
So instead of watching ESPN for news on the NFL, tune to the NFL Network. They offer a even spread of coverage of every team in the NFL.
Watch MLB Network for baseball news about your team because the personalities on there are not droids controlled in the production room and will cut in to any important situation in any game.
