ESPN’s Announcement Regarding Broadcasting The Anthem Before Monday Night Football Is Pathetic

Is ESPN now offering a cure that’s worse than the disease?

Ever since Mr. Colin ‘Pig-Socks‘ Kaepernick decided to turn the Anthem that used to unite us into an opportunity for division, whether players need to stand for the anthem has become a point of contention.

The founder of Papa John’s was even ousted from his CEO position over his public complaints about how the tanking ratings were hurting the companies like his own that were known sponsors.

But — bold promises made by owners and the league or not — the Players’ Association has not yet accepted the new Anthem rules and consequences. That despite the OLD written rules already required players to stand.

And with defiant players having already protested during the anthem in Pre-Season, ESPN has announced they will cut the anthem altogether.

The new president of ESPN announced on Friday that the network would no longer televise the national anthem during Monday Night Football this season.

ESPN President Jimmy Pitaro shared the news with reporters at a media event at the company’s campus in Bristol, Connecticut.

Pitaro, who was hired on March 15 following the resignation of John Skipper, shared that the network had not previously shown the anthem and did not plan to start doing so, Axios.com reports.

He further clarified that ESPN was not a political organization but assured that politics would be covered as they pertained to sports.

‘It’s not our job to cover politics, purely, but we’ll cover the intersection of sports & politics,’ he said.

‘When something happens, when the Eagles disinvited from White House, or when someone takes a knee, if we think newsworthy were going to cover it.’

Is that a slick move to not offend fans on either side of the debate? Are they cowards? Or, worse, are they complicit with the kneelers for failing to play our anthem?
