ESPN Might Want To Rethink The Posting Of This Poll

Friday, April 10, 2009

Yesterday, it was a NASCAR commercial with drivers talking about accidents immediately after reporting on Nick Adenhart's passing, and today it's this. Via NQTC....


I'm not even going to comment on that one.

Unreal. Way to be the Worldwide Leader in Tact.

Not tasteless..I think the injuries they're referring to is the fact they don't have Ervin Santana and John Lackey starting the season for them.

It is still dumb though.

They really could not have just said "Ervin Santana and John Lackey of the Angels" instead of "Angels pitching staff"?

There's no possible way that this poll was created before the Adenhart accident. We should definitely make a huge fuss about this.

Pretty bad but it wasn't done intentionally so I don't think it was that big of a deal

It's not referring to Adenhart. It's referring to Escobar, Santana, and Lackey. It's too bad the general public isn't intelligent enough to differentiate.

I would sincerely hope that they are not intending to refer to Adenhart, but seriously, after what happened yesterday, what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you see the phrase or hear the words, "Angels' pitching staff"?

Obviously no drug testing program at WWL.

At least the poll Fox Sports put up after Sean Avery's idiotic comments was done as a joke.

Do you people honestly feel that the human beings employed by ESPN would post this with Adenhart's death in mind?

Braun's injury was 10 days before spring training ended. Cole Hamels pitched today. This was clearly posted over a week ago.

This post smacks of sensationalistic reaching.

AA, you are better than that.

AA = FAIL.

Their pitching staff was depleted before Adenhart's death. Good thing you looked that up before wasting bandwidth with a retarded post.

Even if it was created before the accident, it probably should have been taken down.

I figured the word "injuries" would be enough of a qualifier for me to differentiate.

I underestimated the amount of sand in everyone's vagina. Get bent out of shape for nothing, especially if it makes you feel better about someone's death. Something tells me the Adenhart family doesn't give a shit.
