I see what you mean, and agree to some degree. I guess what gets me the most is ESPN our "Worldwide Leader in Sports", couldn't take more than 2 minutes away from talking about Peyton Manning's injuries to even say anything about this.
The NHL Network playing repeats instead of having something on this also really pissed me off. They should have acquired a feed from RT (Russia Today) who had amazing coverage of the whole thing.
