ESPN Ombudsman talks to ESPN exec who shockingly defends ESPN

The addressing of the NHL hatred comes toward the bottom, as you would expect. Predictably, there is no anti-NHL bias coming from ESPN. Needless to say, the talk of having the Penguins/Capitals game being the second-longest highlight on Superbowl Sunday is particularly funny, considering there are so many other sports playing that day. The Winter Classic was also the second-longest highlight, right behind that bowl game that nobody can remember. ESPN just doesn't get it. We don't expect equal time. We understand our sport gets lower ratings. All we want is good, professional coverage. They don't understand that every time an anchor mispronounces a player's name, it shows ignorance or disrespect. And putting a hockey highlight in between two editorial sessions discussing Lebron's latest haircut isn't good coverage.
