What You'll See On The Countdowns This Weekend (Another New Segment Alert!)

Friday, September 21, 2007

Here's what you might miss on the ESPN's Countdowns if you're watching CBS like everyone else....

Sunday NFL Countdown:

- Randy Moss (your weekly Patriots piece)
- Frank Gore Interview on his mother's passing
- Contender-Pretender
- The Mayne Event does something on Heroes
- 10-Year Old Jason Krause gives us his take on the timely topic of Brady Quinn falling in the draft (YES!).

Monday Night Countdown:

- New Orleans One Year Later
- Jeff Fisher wired for sound during Titans' practice
- Boiling Point with Parcells and Ditka
- Read and React with Parcells and Keyshawn

New Feature Alert (Sunday NFL Countdown):

Following on last week's new feature "Boiling Point" comes another great idea from the producers of Countdown. The segment is called "Dueling Ditkas", and this week "the conflicting personalities of legendary coach Mike Ditka" will debate whether it's okay to scratch your nuts on national television it's time for patience or panic if you're an 0-2 team.

"Brady Quinn falling in the draft"

Why exactly did Brady Quinn, as ESPN says, "fall?" Because he didn't go where ESPN thought he should have gone? NFL personnel people decide where you will go. And apparently Brady went exactly where the people WHO ACTUALLY MAKE THE DECISIONS thought he should have gone.

ESPN's arrogance just astounds me. Hype the hell out of the guy, so that when he supposedly "drops," he becomes even more newsworthy. Go fu*k yourself, ESPN.

But they are mistaking opinions for facts. There was no "guarantee" or even "evidence" that Brady was a top three pick.

I could say that "I feel like The Rock's new movie should win an Academy Award." Does that give me the right to say that when it doesn't get one, "it was unexpected?"

And there was about as much evidence in retrospect (based on what GMs have said about Quinn and the notorious history of QB busts in the first round) that The Rock will win an Academy Award as there was that Brady Quinn was going #3.

And they didn't freak out and give us weekly stories when Aaron Rodgers "fell."

"And they didn't freak out and give us weekly stories when Aaron Rodgers "fell.""

See, ESPN is a corporation, and as such, a PC organization, they will push the story that has the most attractiveness for the homosexual culture.

I mean, just look at Greenberg in that image.

This kid is doing the dirty work for the network. ESPN has an out. They can say "We didn't do a Brady Quinn story. That's what the kid wanted to talk about." Probably because the kid's only source for information is ESPN, and it sounds to him that they think Brady Quinn is pretty damn important.
