Wiki isn't even a credible source of information anymore. None of my college professors would accept a paper/assignment where wikipedia was used as a source.

ESPN is terrible about stuff like that. They shove football down our throats and basically say "you're going to like it or we'll kick your @$$!" They do the same with baseball and basketball too (though admittedly I love baseball). Then they take like competative eating (not a sport), poker (fun, but not a sport), bull riding (who cares?), strongest man (who cares?) and shove those down our throats too. Then sports like hockey which are more popular than anyone realizes are left out of shows and are ridiculed by writers who don't know anything about the games themselves.

Basically, if ESPN shows it, its forcefed to us and there's nothing we can do about it. But if ESPN doesn't show it, its handled like its the spawn of satan.

I've got nothing against ESPN really, just their Monday Night Football announcers... Football is my first, Hockey is my second, the rest I don't really care too much about. Though it was nice to see the run the Rockies had!

ESPN's anchors are great for the most part, and their announcers/commentators are pretty good too, but whoever's in charge of programming over there needs to be fired. So does burnside, he needs to write about something more suited to him than hockey...something like, competative diaper changing.

ESPN is part of a HUGE conglomerate, Disney, Buena Vista Television, Touchstone Television, ABC Television, ESPN, Miramax Studios and too many more to mention. They pretty much have a monopoly going and they can do what they want.
