Default My Email to ESPN

I finally had enough and fired off this email to ESPN this morning.


Houston fans are sick and tired of the ESPN driven hype of Reggie Bush and I am stunned at the obvious and blatant favoritism being shown this guy at every turn. The recent Texans/Saints game was the last straw. Ever since the 2006 draft, ESPN has taken every opportunity to promote Bush as the second coming and blast the Texans for taking Mario. Now we have a game with both players on the field and when Bush didnít produce, your network got very quiet. I can assure you if Bush had a huge game, the highlight reels and Subway commercials would have been non-stop. Instead, Mario had the huge game and there were no highlight reels of his outstanding play. Shame on you. You even go to great lengths to pad his stats to make him look better. Every running back in the NFL has his after game stats shown with carries and yards gained. But not Bush. He, for some reason, is the king of ďAll Purpose YardsĒ. I believe our own Ron Dayne outgained him in that category during that game but somehow that stat was overlooked. Itís almost comical the way ESPN has polished Bush to a retina destroying luster for their ratings, and when he failed to shine, you barely acknowledged it. Iím very curious to see how you will report the eventual sanctions the NCAA will have to hand down and the loss of his Heisman trophy. Thatís if the NCAA ever gets around to it. Funny how they put the hammer down on those two kids from Oklahoma in about two seconds for a few thousand bucks, but it takes over two years to investigate Bush and his family for taking hundreds of thousands in benefits. Simply amazing.
So how about this idea. Try being sports journalists instead of promoters. Your credibility might just go up around here.

Very nice letter, but in the wrong thread. 1,2,3, move.

Look you've got to understand the eastern sports mind set. They pay a lot for the NFL package. There is more profit in the other minor sports than there is in thier football package. That is why they push Nascar, Hockey, and Baseball. Profit margin.

The only thing they got out of RB is a lot of egg on their collective faces. A lot of people, unprofessional people, laymen, called it spot on on Reggie Bush. They are so arrogant, they will never admit, 1. the '06 USC team was not the greatest football team of all time. 2. Reggie Bush was the second coming of {inert your own personel old school icon}. All that was was pot stirring to get everyone upset.

But since they are the sports leaders...they set the record, even if they are dead wrong. They ain't jounalists. They are entertainers. And as entertainers they feel no responsiblity to set the record straight. RB isn't a 180 degree bust from what they reported him to be.... yet.

But he's getting close.

Great post/email!

What gets me is Reggie's 70 yards receiving for the game...justifying his all purpose yards. He gained 33% of those yards on their last drive with under two minutes left when they were down by 13 points and clearly out of the game. We were playing prevent and Brees just threw the short dump off in the middle of the field to him 3 times.

Going into that drive Reggie had 15 carries for 34 (2.26 yards/carry) yards and 9 receptions for 47 yards (5.22 yards/reception). Congratulations Reggie, the only thing you did at the end of the game was surpass the 100 all purpose yard mark by 4 yards while running the risk of having an injury to a player from either team...all for pointless stats.

You don't have a chance to comeback while down 13 points with under 2 minutes left when you throw 5 yard passes in the middle of the field and have your QB sneak up the middle to end the game. All I was thinking during that drive was 'please don't let any texans get injured!!!!'

At least Romo has justified the pub. RB has done very little in his NFL time. Could a stat monkey help me find out Reggies place in rushing in the leauge? Hell, go ahead and do all purpose yards.

Ok, I'm bored so I'll be your stat monkey.

Bush is 38th in rushing with 48.5 YPG and a 3.6 YPC average. He leads all running backs with 5 fumbles. Surprisingly, Ron "Cookie Monster" Dayne is ranked 32nd.
Bush is 4th in receiving with 67 catches for a whopping 374 yards and a 5.6 YPC average.

I was shocked and saddened to find that there was no stat category for "All Purpose Yards" on NFL.com.

Mad love for my stat monkey. Amazing that he is so far back in rushing. That means back up running backs are outgaining the next coming. Wow, wish we had pulled that trigger.

The reason you can't find "all purpose yards" RB stats on NFL.com......or any NFL stats source for that matter, is because "all purpose yards" is a COLLEGE stat...........once you enter the "big time," the NFL as an RB, you are evaluated solely by the standards of the classic RB position, i.e., YPG and YPC (and fumbles). ESPN as well as Bush have evidently not gotten past college..........they both continue to live in the past, because the present is so unappealing and unflaterring to either of them.

I had no idea that "all purpose yards" wasn't even an NFL stat. But yet ESPN applies it to him after every game. And I really can't think of any other RB that they use it with.

Really good email. Unfortunately espn will continue their biased coverage.

Another thing that gets me about Bush is all the commercials this guy does and for having done what in the NFL? Nothing of any significance.

Honestly, I was just fed up with the constant hype and commercials for a player that does not deserve it. Not to mention that he and his greedy family have put USC in danger of losing their National Championships AND having his Heisman taken away. Think his teammates on those teams might be a little pissed off?
