ESPN spoils Roddick vs. Hewitt result!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok, so I go to work and come home knowing that the Roddick vs. Hewitt match would be shown in delay on ESPN 2. I don't go online to see the result so I can watch the match as it airs on ESPN 2. Everything goes just fine until 4-3 in the third set tiebreaker and then all of a sudden they scroll across the bottom that Hewitt defeated Roddick

After this ESPN definetly sucks

I can't believe a professional sports channel gets away with that.
Last night they also showed the Clijsters match in delay here in Belgium but at least the commentators pretend not to know the result (of course everybody watched it on the wallon tv)

Re: ESPN spoils Roddick vs. Hewitt result!!!!!!!!!!!!

They did that during the doubles match in Davis Cup this year... I was watching the match and towards the end of the first set they scolled that Mario/Ljubo had defeated the Bryans Brothers. They're a bunch of idiots. :retard:

Re: ESPN spoils Roddick vs. Hewitt result!!!!!!!!!!!!

I saw that too. I couldn't believe they would show the result right in the middle of the tiebreaker that had me on the edge of my seat.

Again I missed part of the match cause they didn't start until about 30 min after tennis was scheduled and it went over the allocated time. I started recording again at 5:15 in the morning, but I missed from 4:30 till then. I really hate espn.

Oh, friggin' WORD on this. I was actually up at the time and was pissed they weren't airing the match as scheduled (1:30am where I am). Instead it was some racecar program.

I appreciate ESPN for bothering to show tennis, but they're fucking it up majorly.

Re: ESPN spoils Roddick vs. Hewitt result!!!!!!!!!!!!

And on top of that, Roger beats LLeyton with 19min to spare, and instead of showing the trophy presentation, they show Roddick vs Hewitt from early this morning.

F*ck them all to hell.

Re: ESPN spoils Roddick vs. Hewitt result!!!!!!!!!!!!

May I add my grumble? I thought the commentary was particularly lame this afternoon, even by ESPN standards. Found myself pushing the mute button for long spells.

That's how I feel as well. I really wanted to see the trohpy presentation. It gives a sense of closure to the tournament so you know it was the final. I don't think they showed the trophy presentation at the Australian Open either. I wish there were competing networks showing the matches so I could choose which one I want to see. I can't stand hearing "espn's exclusive coverage...".

I'm beginning to think that Drysdale is going senile. He's been screwing up scores all week, but i damn near fell off the couch when he said "so Hewitt is definitely a threat for the French...oh no, i mean Roddick" And Pmac 'the droppah!' 'Helll-ooo' and his 'mustard' thing...ughh, where's Jmac ?

RDS also did it once, and they showed the result right from the beginning of the match! It was the TMC 2004 Houston Semifinal Federer VS Safin...

LMAO. So true.

Re: ESPN spoils Roddick vs. Hewitt result!!!!!!!!!!!!

As if ESPN hasn't done enough not showing Fed except the early rounds and finals. But I give em props for PMac/Drysdale. Throw in JMac.
