    The question is so broad. My answer is yes because I get informed of what I need to know

    There coverage or bias towards other sports is a different question but If you need to know if anything happened with a sport today you can go to espn and wait for it to pop up on the bottom line because it will be there

    Coverage? Time spent on other sports? There expert analysis? Etc I think that's a different question and for a different response

    I think most of the "anti-ESPN" arguments are ****ing stupid.

    Like Ram4PrezMan said, they're a business. They can only do so much. I think they balance it greatly.

    No they play the same show over and over. The coverage is unfair and boring.
    It's all football and basketball. They only cover like 8 teams total and they cover no hockey or other sports like that.

    I think the "they're a business" arguments are generally pretty stupid as well.

    Believe it or not, you can have a successful business (especially when you're the only game in town and have been for so long) without watering down your product, showing clear bias and catering to idiots.

    People are going to watch ESPN regardless because they have so many contracts with the NBA, NCAA & MLB...I think most have issue with their original programming, which is typically the same stories recycled over and over and over again on half hour shows that are all the same (PTI, ATH, etc.) and then sensationalized to death on SportsCenter. Not everyone wants to hear about what Tim Tebow ate for lunch when there are actual highlights that can be shown.

    They never show any because they are in lockout every other season...

    ESPN really doesn't do it for me anymore.. way too biased towards certain teams/areas. If I want football coverage I watch NFL network, if I want baseball coverage I go to MLB network.

    I do however like ESPN.com much more than their tv. Their website is much more in depth and you can get to the stuff that is important to you and just ignore all the crap. lol

    Yeah, it's annoying at times but it's definitely good.
    Although one thing I've noticed lately is that they definitely have a bias towards stories and teams and games and players that will be on their channel(s) for sure.

The only problem I have is some of their "analyst" don't know **** and are just there because of their names.
    This, except substitute will be working there with have already worked there. Also, I don't have family friends that work there but having worked there, I do know people there.

    Also please vote. Votes are important.
    ESPN is a business and football is a billion times more popular than hockey. Is it really that complicated to understand?

    no.incredibly biased and pretty bad,whatever highlights thwy show are short just the dunk/hr/td,ect with the commentator chiming in with whatever crappy catch phase they reach for(i find most of their on air personalities are more concerned with that than anything else).if i'm looking for tv coverage i just go to the league channel(mlb/nfl/nba network),but if your looking for anything in depth than just get your info from the net

    ...i do like the 30 for 30 series though

    no. They are horrible and worthless to watch if you are a fan of any team not in the northeast, Heat or Lakers.
