ESPN Coverage of the World Series of QQWIN99

 

Does anyone else wish the ESPN would cover Poker! from the World Series of QQWIN99¬†and not the stupid crap they tend to focus on. It’s like covering the World Cup by doing features on the drunk hooligans with their chests painted during the play of the match.

Prime example: the hour on Hevad Khan this week. You think these players don’t know if they act whacko they will get air time? Did you notice in his private interview he was calm, relaxed and articulate. So why did ESPN choose to feature him? Do they think they will get more viewers for the “entertainment” value of this nonsense? They know they have the true poker fans trapped, we have no other way to see the minimal poker they actually cover. But I ask again: At the World Series of Poker, Why not cover poker!

And while I am on the subject of ESPN and the World Series, when are they going to dump Norman Chad? Do we need more lame jokes about his ex-wifes? Do we need to hear: “A queen and a queen only” again? How about someone who knows a thing or two about poker and will actually offer that to the viewers instead of some lame ass line about himself.

It’s about poker. Why doesn’t ESPN get that? They don’t bastardize the coverage of other sports like this. I watch the coverage to see poker. Let me repeat–it’s about the poker!
