    Why does ESPN think we give a %#*@ about the Philly Eagles?

    Losing fukking team who will lose all through the season. ESPN can't get them off the damn tv. Who gives a flying fukk about the Eagles?

    Same reason they think we care about lebron, Riley cooper, tebow, steroids, puig. We don't but its sports news and its a desperate network.

    Espn has become a joke the past couple years. They have a tendancy to overblow stories.

    when a network limits themselves to say a sports for example they become limited in what their talking points are. Now when this said network is a 24 hours a day channel you start to see the need to create news that might not necessarily be much.

    Last time I checked, ESPN ratings were pretty good. They put it out there, we eat it up.

    Ask Disney Corp. they own ESPN, given that background its no surprise they create these stories, disney-esque.

    It's about the numbers and media market...nothing more.

    SKins take the NFC East in front of either the G-men or Boys so the Eagles are irrelevant from the jump.

    Itch, I am a gigantic G-Man fan, believe me when I tell you this, my team that I root for every Sunday will not be relevant this year with that porous swiss cheese defense.

    Yeah I've noticed the lacking there this season on the roster. Maybe the offense will keep them somewhat competitive. Everyone is still all about Dallas but Romo got his nice cushy new contract, same let downs coming now in Big D for those fans.

    Talking heads. If you grabbed a bunch of onions, put them on your window sill, opened the fukkin window and let the wind blow over them you would get better sports news.

    Fukkin cares about any of it.

    For the same reason Beiber runs the radio. Kardashians run the cable. And retards get elected.

    Because people don't stop talking about them. We are THEE consumer culture. They wouldn't put product out there if we didn't consume it. So, everytime you bitch about ESPN running shit that sucks, turn around and bitch at the morons around you for watching and talking about that bullshit.

    you only have to watch if Tiger hour is on for about 2 minutes to catch that his last major win was 2008

    tiger hour is every other hour right now
