And it's not just Houston, there's other teams that should be getting more air time, but get passed over by "ETSN" (Entertainment Tebow Sports Network)
ESPN is just a horribly produced sports channel, but there's really no other channel to challenge them so it is what it is.
They make good commercials though. As for competing stations, it'll be a few years, but once NBC Sports Network bids on some tv contracts, ESPN will have real competition.
