The reason why ESPN sucks

Okay so yeah. I am going to do a series of posts about the reasons why ESPN sucks. It might be daily, weekly or hell might be a couple of times a month. I don't know right now but I have to say for a sports media monopoly not focusing on important sports news story is criminal. I don't care who is going to be the starting quarterback for the University of Minnesota. I want stories that are global!!! For instance there was an election fraud in Iran and the people are protesting the results. Tens of thousands are marching on the streets wearing green protesting their government, knowing that they could be beaten, jailed or killed. They are standing up to injustices and among the protesters where some of the soccer players of the Iran National Team according to the Huffington Post.

The Huffington Post’s Nico Pitney, who has been liveblogging the Iranian protests all week, reports that an Iranian blogger alleges that the football players who wore green wristbands earlier this week in support of the protests have been suspended. The National Iranian American Council’s blog translates a tweet from Iranian Twitter user “Iranbaan,” a source they trust, who wrote, “The soccer players who were wearing green wristbands in the Iran-South Korea game have been suspended.”

Not one mention of this story on ESPN.COM main page and I checked it's SoccerNet page which is hard to find and no mention of this story at all. This is one of many reason ESPN sucks for not informing it's audience about this injustice but instead promote the public lynching of latin players like Sammy Sosa. Shame on you ESPN. I hope your monopoly on sports media ends soon.
