100% true. The only reason they cover it is because hockey has become much more popular. They rather cover baseball pre-spring season training than hockey playoffs. They rather cover 99% of their day the same BS on the Super Bowl than cover more than a minute of last nights Hockey games.
But it justs shows you the future of ESPN and where its heading and why it did not get a deal with NHL. This is why I am happy NBC got the deal. ESPN only wanted the deal because of where hockey is and not having the vision of where its going.
Another thing, terrible reporting. Their stories are repetitive and dull. They rather cover how LeBron James failed to win a championship because he choked rather than covering the teams systems and how Dallas adapted to the series to win the finals. Its stories like this and more.
NBC is doing a great job with NBC 36, NFL Turning Point, Business of sports, and just much better stories and better reporting
