    This is when the broader culture around the NFL gets really, really annoying.

    I missed that (was watching the news of a manhunt around the campus of a naval hospital for somebody who stabbed another guy), so who's team is getting cursed this year?

    World Cup coverage is going to knock ATH & PTI off the air until July. Boooo, boooo.

    it's stupidity in that we lose a good source of stupidity to post to this thread. it'd be more stupid if they didn't do it though.

    Are all the ESPN networks going to be showing Cup games? They couldn't shoe-in those shows on ESPNU or ESPN Classic for a few days? :p

    He caught a fish - there's an ocean near Los Angeles. Coincidence? I THINK NOT.

    To be fair though, it's not quite as bad as the coverage was during The Decision period (likely due to the World Cup and Wimbeldon). Still pretty bad though.

    Would it really have been that much trouble to have added the 'a' in Netherlands?

    I am absolutely petrified that Fox has the rights to broadcast the World Cup in the US in the next two World Cups. Absolutely petrified. I could do another thread on just Fox Soccer stupidity.

    Only need one finger to count Fox Soccer's assets. Warren Barton.

    Everyone else is absolutely dreadful, starting with that total *** face Eric Wynalda. Those who think Alexi Lalas is bad are in for the rudest of awakenings in 2018.

    ESPN did an amazing job with the World Cup, as they did four years ago. Really, really impressive- Roberto Martinez and Michael Ballack are top class, as are Taylor Twillman and Ian Darke. Ruud van Nisterlrooy was awesome, too.

    That's harsh. Fox brings in good supplemental talent for big events. They had Grant Wahl for the last Gold Cup.

    Okay , so that might be it ...

    EDIT: they did spawn/inspire the FauxDoctorJoe Twitter account, so there is that ...

    10 bucks they'll bring Caliendo in. Double or nothing they'll bring Jimmie Johnson in, decked out in his Hawaiian shirt. It'll probably be some variation of the American flag, which they think we'll find witty.

    Fox knows three things - football, 24, and conservative politics.

    Caliendo's employed by ESPN these days.

    I haven't watched them in years, but their columnist Jamie Trecker is an absolute idiot, completely clueless of the world outside the EPL.

    I'm going to really miss Ian Darke.
