I know the easy answer is to not watch the station or website---But is anyone else tired of espn's political correctness-Everytime an athlete,player,member of a coaching staff,announcer or member of ownership say anything having to do with a woman,minority, or a homosexual-then espn runs that as their main story for 3 days and then you get bombarded by their columnists on the website telling you what a lowlife that person is..these well paid columnists who sit behind a laptop all day and get to lob their insults at these athletes over an opinion....would love to see them get it handed to them one of these days...whatever happened to just giving the scores and highlights

Too bad an alleged rape is interfering with your television habits.

Why don't you blame the person that made the racist, misogynist, or homophobic comment in the first place?

In betweeen the overbite and not being able to dance or jump it's hard work being white.

Honestly, yes...a little bit.

But nowhere close to as tired of all Barry Bonds all the time. I just don't care about Barry Bonds. Don't love him. Don't hate him. I just don't care. Please stop shoving every at bat, every hint of an injury, every warning track fly ball, every yahoo who throws something on the field, and every sneeze down our throats. We don't care, and you can't make us care...even if you do have a conveniently timed reality show based on his life.

I swear for a few weeks last month Sports Center consisted solely of interviews with Mike Schmidt, who was writing a book about Barry Bonds, Rob Schneider, Jon Luvitz & the dork from Napoleon Dynamite. Those are the only five people I saw for weeks if I happened to flip past ESPN.

No thanks. I don't tune in to ESPN for highlights anymore. I prefer to see puff pieces with minor celebrities and free advertising for Schmidt's book and "Deuce Bigelow Does Baseball."

If I was as simple-minded as ESPN thinks I am, I'd hang myself with Ray Combs bedsheets.

Here I thought this was going to be another thread about Baseball Tonight not giving the Reds enough love.

BTW, BT was slobbering all over Albert Pujols last night. I thought they were going to pull out some $ bills and slip them in his G-string. Now how's that for political correctness?

One thing I can say is it's hard to get sick of ESPN if you just don't watch it. It pretty much sux these days.

now that's funny.

There are easily as many conservative folks on this board as there are liberals, if not more, and I bet most of them woud be just as quick to distance themselves from your remarks.

Does that mean 7.5 of the RedsZone 10 are liberals?

I'm tired of ESPN trying to create the story.

I'm tired of ESPN telling me what I should and shouldn't care about.

I'm tired of ESPN thinking people believe everything they say.

I'm tired of ESPN thinking their experts trump all other experts.

I'm tired of Barry Bonds being the featured act of ESPN every night. I don't think it's breaking news to tune in to ESPN News and see that Bonds went 0-2 with an IBB.

I'm tired of ESPN presenting itself as though they are the only game in town.

I'm tired of ESPN, and thus don't watch anything but the occasional ESPN News broadcast to watch the ticker at the bottom.

7.5 are liberal. The conservatives wanted no part in the duct taping of the 50/50 moderate. At least that's what Chip indicated.

Welcome to America in 2006. When in doubt, blame "the other team."

Good post Joseph. You're the one moderator in this thread that hasn't gotten off topic in order to ridicule someone. Tip o' the hat to ya'.

Personally, I haven't watched BBTN since Monday----that was when I woke up at about 5 AM and flipped on the TV. Gee, the bass fishing and deer hunting was over but BBTN was on. Luckily for me, Reds highlights came on about 3 minutes later, I watched them and then switched to CNBC for the business news. :)

What in the hell is the ten thing about anyway? If people wanna do inside jokes can't they go somewhere else and not clog up the board?
