    ESPN sucked when it came to the Vikes and their second round pick!

    When the Vikes traded their 2nd round pick to Atlanta Berman said they would speak about the trade coming out of the break, and then they blew it off!
    Never said what we got from Atlanta and the local 6:00 o'clock news didn't even know what the Vikes.


    I finally found out what we got in the trade until 9:30PM and I still am not 100% sure but I was told it was the Falcons 4th round pick.


    But when the Vikes made the 44th selection ESPN had gone to commercial, and the Vikes clock stopped which means the Vikes had made their selection.
    Then the "on the clock" section just went away for one of the very few times all day and they left us hanging not knowing if it was Jarrett or Rice or if we had traded again.

    ESPN you left us hanging last year too!

    Jerkoffs!

    I noticed that too, here locally in Norfolk, VA right at the Vikings 2nd round pick it cut to a commercial with no espn side bar to see whom we had chosen.. Not sure if it happened like that everywhere.

    I noticed that, and I had completely missed the trade.

    exactly, my dad and i were freaking out because first of all the ticker guy for ESPN screwed up and said that minnesota didn't have a 3rd round pick and then they changed it after the commercial break, and then they never told us what exactly happened and went straight to the next pick! i finally just switched over to NFL Network to see what had happened. i had TIVO so i just rewinded it and found out what happend and NFL Network explained the trade within 30sec of when it actually happened!!! but i agree i was really pissed off at ESPN!!!

    If it was the Giants, Jets, or Bears pick, ESPN would have treated like it was the 10 Commandments fresh off of the mountain.


    Go Vikings!

    Ahem!

    Please note the POPULATION SIZE of the cities whose teams you listed above.

    Now, tell me how many of those people in those cities might buy the products of the sponsors of the ESPN telecast of the draft.

    Now, compare that number to the number of potential viewers of ESPN in cities such as Green Bay, Mpls, and Buffalo.

    Now do you see the reasons for differences in ESPN's time allotments to player selections by team?


    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    I don't total agree with the population size. I'm sure they ran out of time and had to move on.
