Did ESPN Talk About The Bizarre Packers-Seahawks Finish Entirely Too Much?

Submitted by on September 27, 2012 – 10:52 amNo Comment

By now, everyone knows about the dreadful job the officials did that cost the Green Bay Packers the game against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football. Yes, the two refs were out of position and out of sync. Yes, we think that the wrong call was made. Yes, everyone was up in arms about it. But did ESPN really have to dedicate the entire day of programming to that specific event? No!

From the time the game ended on Monday night up until the following evening, all we saw on ESPN was constant coverage of the Monday Night Blunder. From First Take to every SportsCenter and Bottom Line that scrolled across the bottom of the screen, all we saw was coverage of that strange finish. But why did we have to be subjected to the fallout for over 24 hours? There’s no possible way you could have avoided it. Whether it was on social media, the news, or from a friend, the entire country was talking about the Packers getting jobbed or the Seahawks getting a remarkable gift from the football gods.

It’s too bad because there were so many other stories we could have discussed. While this was certainly the biggest, I hope that ESPN doesn’t make the mistake of constant coverage like this again.

What are your thoughts? Was the coverage too much for you?
