Simple question: Do you think ESPN does a good job with its sports coverage? Consider everything, not just Sportscenter although that is obviously a big part. Do you think they do a good job of covering all sports? Its a broad question, please answer the poll!
Yes, they are always quick with delivering news and sportscenter is where is see all of the highlights. But my opinion is biased as well because I have a few family friends that work for espn and I will be working there this summer. The only problem I have is some of their "analyst" don't know **** and are just there because of their names.
Cover football way more than any other sport. I guess that only sucks for me since I don't watch football. But basketball and especially baseball get a bad deal. When they talk about baseball it's always either the Yankees, Phillies or Red Sox.
Outside of college football, college basketball and international soccer, they suck. NBCSN is new to the field and CBS Sport network is as well. FOX now has one that's suppose to be coming up soon too. I hope when the NBA's next TV contract runs up that NBCSN/NBC get into the running for it.
Another thing that sucks about them too is that they focus too much on sports that they only broadcast as well.
1. fj PM'd me telling me to vote, so I voted for the option he didn't vote for
2. ESPN is a business. They do what they feel will satiate the greatest number of people. Do they do a good job? Well, it depends on what "a good job" means. Obviously they have huge biases, focus on some teams/sports more than others and run with story lines that a lot of people don't care for, but ESPN is HUGE and immensely profitable. We all ***** about it, but most of us still are watching it. There are better alternatives in some definitions of the word, but again, there is a reason why they dominant the sports scene so incredibly much. It's stupid to expect them to cover every sport and every team equally.
