    I've been a Texan's fan long enough to realize that ESPN has no love for us, but I have been watching for over an hour now with no mention of our Texans. I'm sure if RB had a good game than it would have been worth a story but since the Texans might have got it right after all, They show nothing. ESPN is the only sports news shown on armed forces tv, I was ready to see some crow eaten this morning......

    I mentioned this in another topic man. I know I feel had the Golden Boy had a good day and Mario and the Texans lost we'd hear about it.

    I think all of those guys that called the Texans Stupid for taking Mario don't want to eat their Crow and that is not right, they have to eat it.

    Was thinking the same freaking thing. If Bush had tore it up, ESPN would have been hyping the highlights so much more. Sad and pitiful, really sad and pitiful. F*ck espn! :texflag:

    ESPN just presents what the sports fans want to hear so they can sell more beer and trucks in their commericals. Most sports fans around the nation laugh at the Texans for passing up both Vince and Bush for Mario, and so ESPN rolls with that. Nothing unusual.

    When Mario starts kicking serious ass and the Texans prove to be a winning team, we'll get the coverage.

    Its pathetic imo, all week they were hyping up "Reggie vs Mario" and when Reggie plays like crap and Mario has a good game they sweep it under the rug.

    Well, I guess it's not limited to ESPN. I was just watching the armed forces network replay of the Pats-bills game and during the half time show with Costas and Keith Oberman they covered all of the Sunday afternoon games and guess which games got left out? Well to be honest I don't think they showed highlights of the 49-rams game either. I guess we fall under the loser/unnewsworthy bracket. Although had Reggie Bush made a couple of plays the story would share billing with Bonds. there would be some sort of Sportcenter special on Barry bonds and teams who passed on Reggie.

    You knows it's a good day when Espin has nothing to say about Houston. I prefer it that way. Let the cowards run and hide.

    I made a thread in tailgating (please merge). I watch for 1:15 and the repeating material was on the right side. WTH?

    I want to confirm, we simply were not on ESPN at all?

    i watched the hour long one at 6pm last night, and i didn't see anything.... the two anchors kinda mentioned mario v. reggie off hand (paraphrasing, "The game in Houston made it look like the draft order was correct.")

    i was waiting to see ditka's comments on the texans...

    The only reason I even watch espn anymore is to get scores from other sports. The NFL Network is the station I watch for NFL news and highlights. I now even watch it for College football analysis too.

    The people on NFLN actually speak from their own mind rather than parroting others. Some comments aren't good for the Texans, but they're realistic. Mooch gave us a compliment saying we're a young up and coming team in the NFL.

    Get NFL Network.:)

    At least I know I was not completely out of my mind when I would have swore they did not show us.

    As far as they are only showing what the fans want to hear? BS they have an agenda and do not want to make themselves look stupid. Fans want all teams covered and here and see the scores and highlights of games they missed. For them to ignore the game completely is not doing what the fans want.

    ESPN really is losing ground to NFLN right now. I might read the ESPN webpage, but as far as watching their network they just plain suck.

    EDIT: ESPN's Studs and Duds

    I think some of you might be surprised.

    Well said.

    Another point is that ESPN focus on Offensive players. Look at their 'studs and duds' section this week. I guess the hyped up running backs sell the beer and trucks while defences do nothing other than win games. Oh well.

    ESPN lost all credibility with me when they did the day long Joe Torre farewell press conference. That channel is built around New York and New England sports and occasionally will mention Philadelphia and LA. Just pathetic. Oh and they talk about Romo and TO too.

    It used to be where their Baseball coverage was the only thing that was so blatantly focused on the left coast. Well now their whole coverage is just a complete joke.

    Please, for the love of God. Can someone beat the Patriots, please? And please, can the Giants or Jets get any more coverage than they do with being average teams respectively? And if I hear another story about the Red Sox, I may jump off a bridge.

    the NFLN is where I go for coverage as well and they give almost every team EQUAL coverage....which is how it should be.

    Your first mistake was watching ESPN.

    Your second mistake was not watching the NFL Network.

    If I want sensationalized hype and highlights for sports I could care less about: ESPN

    When I want to see full coverage of the only sport I care about: NFLN :cowboy1:

    I watched the NFL show last night and they showed the Texans v Saints highlights , and actually broke them down . They just didn't do the whole heres Reggie with a gain , and the Texans went on to win 23-10 . Its a far superior show IMO .
