    There's a 7-page Roethlisberger thread that includes discussion of ESPN's lack of coverage.

    Do your own work.

    Fair game to discuss here. I don't need to be directed to a multi-page thread I haven't seen.

    Why not start a pissing match instead?? Seems like so much more fun.

    My apologies for starting the thread. I read the other one. Very interesting.

    Wish my newspaper wasn't stripping this across the top of A1, but who am I?

    Is there a bigger story out there?

    This is a legitimate journalism topic worth discussing. No need to get snippy with the thread starter. Seeing as the other thread got bogged down in a pissing match, it was worth breaking out anyway.

    ESPN is being journalistically dishonest by not at least acknowledging that this is a story. A civil suit has been filed against the quarterback of the most popular football team in the NFL. He has hired an attorney and has responded. ESPN has to acknowledge this. But they won't, and it's sort of the last straw on whether or not I want to take them seriously as a journalistic endeavor. You cannot ignore news when it might upset a potential source.

    I'm not saying you have to blow it out, or have all of your talking heads opine or dissect it. But acknowledge it. You owe the public that much.
