    Or, they realize it just sucks.

    I thought Doria's comment was pretty condescending. I read it as "our viewers are too stupid to be offended by a promo for a shitty ABC show snuck into our highlights."

    Glad to know Vince Doria thinks his viewers are lemmings.

    She has written some good stuff, whether it effects change or not.

    Considering whatever highlight from Wipeout that was aired took place weeks, if not months ago, it's a pretty weak move.
    I don't mind the Dancing with the Stars promos
    the inclusion of ads in the MNF opening titles
    but the way the ad folks have infested SportsCenter is pretty ugly.

    Solid quote from the bud:

    "When everything on ESPN points us toward something else on ESPN, as it so often and relentlessly does, viewers (or is it just me?) start feeling trapped in the sports equivalent of "The Truman Show,"

    I thought this post was Inky's. It's not. It's Schreiber's.

    Just as an FYI.
  9. Vince Doria: Our viewers think what others tell them to think.
