Ok, I get it. Some of us are a tad bit sensitive about the east coast bias thing. And anyone who says it doesn't exists probably also believes Dan McGuire was our greatest qb ever. But why do so many of us get their panties in a bunch over it?
It's nothing personal. They are just doing the wise thing for their shareholders and maximizing their profits. Media exists to make money. Media makes money by selling advertising. You sell more advertising by having a larger viewership. You have a large viewership by showing more people what they want to see/hear. 3/4 of the entire US population lives on the East Coast. Soooo, you think they want to hear about the up and coming Seahawks or how Sanchez's ex gf may not be rumored to be dating Tebow's ex's brother's in law's cousin? Just saying.
Bottom line is, if you want to stay in business in the National sports world you had better be giving the east coast what the east coast wants to hear. If you want the National media to constantly talk about your team regardless of anything they've done to earn it. Just choose an east coast team to root for--like Cleveland---oh wait...
Hate it all you want, but if you owned a national media outlet and did anything different you would losing a ton of money. No conspiracy. Just Benjamin's.
