Can't we at least get a happy hour?
Sorta like how the "moderates" get squeezed out of the media coverage by the extremes of the left and right. Engage people's passionate emotions, get them drawn in; if you watch the show but hate the egotism of Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin, well at least you're passionate about something.
And like the ESPN non-coverage of anything involving the TOUCHDOWN where Seattle beat Green Bay that didn't support their *agenda*, which is to drive hits and eyeballs to their site, by choosing an angle to engage and inflame and get people passionate, based on their emotions, facts be damned.
Sigh... I suppose there are legit, moderate, high-information-content NFL-related programs out there somewhere. Nah, too boring. Never mind. Trash talk and putdowns and East Coast bias sells better to the masses.
