ESPN USA Sucks ..

They are not showing Masters cup semi finals live tomorrow. Instead they are showing it recorded at 11.00 p.m in the night.. Baseball season is over but I don't know what bloddy game is going on at 6.00 a.m in the morning which is a bigger priority than the Masters cup.. Damnn.. ESPN USA should feck themselves..

Re: ESPN USA Sucks ..

If the schedule on their website is correct, the final is going to be tape-delayed too.

Because they're showing the taped semifinals while the final is being played in Shanghai.

Re: ESPN USA Sucks ..

Do these commentators (Dick, PMac, Cliff, ...) have email address?

Go ESPN!

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."

Re: ESPN USA Sucks ..

Hey, hey don't criticize ESPN - they actually had pretty good coverage of the majors (and even some European ATP tournaments) even though only one American was present in the latter stages in three of them.

I agree that ESPN should have atleast telecast the final live but I am happy they are willing to show it at all. It is a ratings game after all and if fishing is more popular than tennis then god help us.

Need ideas for a new signature...

Re: ESPN USA Sucks ..

i think that espn showing this years' masters (with all of the withdrawals and lack of interesting/identifiable players) is enough to be grateful for. just don't find out the result until the broadcast starts and it's exactly the same effect! as long as espn continues to have sportscenter (which it always has and will) and its excellent coverage of wimbledon (not sure about the other two), i'll be happy.

but fishing??? who watches that?

Go Roger , Lindsay , Richard , and Kim in '06

Re: ESPN USA Sucks ..

Gotta agree w/Howardean. I don't see why yo'all get so bent out of shape. What the hell is great about getting up @3am to watch it. I did that once this week, and it was Miserable. Prime Time Sat. night is Far Superior. Just stay off web sports sites til afterwards. Big Deal. And what's not to like about a Sunday Noon Final - sure beats the 5am RG Final!
