What is ESPN thinking?

    Texas A&M beats Kansas State in college hoops today, and ESPN's highlights have nothing to do with the Aggies making plays to win the game.

    Instead, they spotlight a K-State kid (Southwell) making a couple mistakes, then mention how he fouled out and showed his name misspelled on his jersey. Was it really necessary to throw this kid under the bus like that...it's not like he threw some giant tantrum or behaved poorly. He made a few mistakes.

    How about showing us some highlights on the A&M side?

    The title of this thread is an oxymoron.
     
  5. You are such a petty loser. Was this one-liner representative of your creativity or intellect?

    Hmmm. One of the world's most successful global sports media companies, 7,000+ employees, bonuses and raises for 30+ years for employees ... A company strategically placed to succeed across all platforms, worldwide. Yeah, no one is thinking at ESPN.

    Enjoy typing in those high school hoops stats this morning, idiot.

    Calm down there, son. Do you really think the people who made ESPN the World Wide Leader in Sports had anything to do with the Texas A&M-Kansas State basketball highlight package on Sports Center last night?

    I would say, simply, that an entity with all those credentials probably has a tad thicker skin over an off-hand one-liner -- or should.

    You forgot the bonuses and raises. For 30+ years.

    Well, to be fair, our overreactive friend was simply saying that nobody should question whether somebody is THINKING at ESPN. I suppose somebody is, somewhere.
