Title: Misinformed?

Do you think this guy has been living under a rock to not know why ESPN might not have lots of warm fuzzy feelings for Nascar right now?   :roll:

I'd bet you anything the author never even followed NASCAR himself until it went to Fox and NBC or he'd know the history ESPN has with the sport.  He obviously doesn't know how ESPN has been treated lately and all the problems they encountered trying to just get highlight footage from 2001 til this year.  What an idiot!

And to mock ESPN for promoting the sports they cover, what about all the baseball stuff we get interjected into race broadcasts from Fox and and other sports, such as Bull Riding from NBC this past week?   Yeah, this guy sure is a "responsible" journalist...

Title: Good Story

On the other hand, here is a newspaper writer taking everyone to task for NOT covering the real story from last weekend's sports world:  Johnson moving right back into the points chase.  This is good!
