ESPN just dug their grave with this frontpage story days before NFL kickoff

53

ESPN publicly admitted that their Left-wing political bias has cost them subscribers.

With college football season starting and the NFL just days away from kickoff, there is a lot to talk about in sports.

But ESPN ignored all that and had sports fans scratching their heads with this “politically correct” frontpage story.

ESPN has been on life support ever since they decided to shove progressive politics down people’s throats.

They’ve been forced to fire anchors who called President Trump racist, constantly peddle the so-called “wage gap” myth in female sports, and side with national anthem kneelers.

Now, ESPN just published a frontpage fluff piece on an NFL linebacker opening up about being bisexual.

Ryan Russell is a journeyman lineman who played for the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers before being cut by the Buffalo Bills prior to the start of the 2018 season.

Now he’s turning to the media to help him stage a comeback.

Russell opened up about his “truth” to ESPN:

But for all the encouraging feelings about the visit, I do have one strong regret that has inspired me to make a promise to myself: This is the last time I will ever interview for a job as anything other than my full self. Out of love, admiration and respect, I want the next team to sign me valuing me for what I do and knowing who I truly am.

Have I lied to teammates, coaches, trainers, front-office executives and fans about who I am? Not exactly. But withholding information is a form of deceit. And I want the next part of my career — and life — steeped in trust and honesty. During the season you spend more time with your team than with your own family; truth and honesty are the cornerstones of a winning culture. My truth is that I’m a talented football player, a damn good writer, a loving son, an overbearing brother, a caring friend, a loyal lover, and a bisexual man.

Today, I have two goals: returning to the NFL, and living my life openly. I want to live my dream of playing the game I’ve worked my whole life to play, and being open about the person I’ve always been.

The Left-wing hacks at ESPN can think of no other storyline days before the NFL season than to peddle this LGBT storyline.

It failed when Sports Illustrated put Michael Sam, the first openly homosexual NFL player, on their cover.

Sam was out of the league before playing in a game.

If Russell was good enough, he would be on an NFL team.

But ESPN believes they can use their clout to force sports teams to sign LGBT players just to cater to their Left-wing bias, regardless of whether they earn a spot on the roster.

Do you think ESPN cares more about pushing “politically correct” nonsense than reporting on sports?

  1. Yes, the boo-yah network is another extension of the leftists. They ruin everything they touch. Fortunately, at least to-date, the American people see this BS for what it is.

    • Who cares who he screws? (Just not underage kids) I don’t. He can go do a duck for all I care. The only thing anybody cares about, esp coaches, teammates, fans, et., is if he’s good enough to play. Evidently he’s not, or he WOULD be playing instead of wallowing emotionally about his sexual preferences. Example: A work friend I’d become good friends with moved out of town. When she came back five years later she revealed to me and three other friends that she was a lesbian. Who cared? We didn’t. Nobody gave a hoot about the sex lives of any of us because we looked at the character of our friends, not their bedroom habits!

    • How in the world is your comment related to the story line? You are part of the problem-a non comformist, apologist for Hillary the Loser. Talk sports, not politics or biblical misbehavior.

    • ESPN: NO CATERING to special groups, NO POLITICS , and NO KNEELING EVER in Sports. Just be respectful to the country, stand for the Pledge & Anthem. Our women’s soccer team was so disrespectful and I will never watch them again. And NFL, you too, are a goner & double that now that you have teamed up with Jay Z. That’s not what football is about ! And you all are way too expensive too! A family of 4 cannot afford to go to the game and have a good family day anymore. You pay your players way too much, as well as Goodall. Watching sports isn’t fun anymore. Thanks for ruining it ESPN.

    • Fred, You are making a laughingstock out of yourself. Nobody cares what you think. Especially with your really stupid rhetoric. Be sure you get ready for school on time tomorrow or your third grade teacher will put a dunce cap on you and put you in the corner. But you deserve that anyway. hahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

  2. By him saying he is bi. He just killed his chances! What team would want a bi player in their team? Yea right! In joy your retirement.

  3. ESPN has completely lost its mission which is to REPORT ON SPORTS. Period. Pushing the sexual deviancy of some players is just more leftist propaganda.

  4. Stupid stupid stupid. If he is good enough he would be on a team but he is using his sexual preference to force
    the issue to Teams, Owners, Fans & of course ESPN who will use any excuse to promote non-standard behavior. Wonder how long it will be before Trump is getting blamed?
    Damn but the PC crowd makes me sick……

    • As Dice Clay once ALSO asked: “What’s all this ‘I tune in to ESPN as little as possible CRAPOLA?’ Either you tune in to ESPN… or you DON’T.”

      I don’t.

  5. Waiting for the comeback of the XFL. They don’t cater to these cry babies. Who cares who you like to do in private. I don’t want to know

  6. I’m 70 yrs old and everyone I know came to term with these issues decades ago. (Homosexuality, racism, etc) but I do have a problem with the arrogance of the ESPN talking heads. When Jamale Hill made her anti-Trump comments, I let them hear about it. They have become irrelevant, as has the NFL.

    • I feel the same way and I’m 70 also. I tune in a sports channel to view sports not to find out how many queers are playing the game.

    • I feel the same way and I’m older also. I tune in a sports channel to view sports not to find out how many queers are playing the game.

  7. Get on with sports the way it should be, and stop all the political crap,
    it’s not helping you! Further more I won’t watch ESPN until you do, do you have the guts ESPN, or are you going to stay a bunch of weiney’s?

  8. In due time ESPN and all the phony liberal media hacks will fail to earn enough profits to spew their nonsense. Real Americans with half a brain understand this and I can’t wait for the day that they all fail miserably because everyone can clearly see and understand their pathetic agendas. No one wants to tune into Sport Broadcasting and hear about pathetic liberal issues. Stick to sports you Losers !! 🤪

  9. People are individuals and have a right to live and believe as they feel. The left feels that they alone have the right to say, do, act, kill (babies), etc. as they desire and only they have that right. We live in this country together and it’s time that all of us learn to live together and accept each other as who they are and not who we want them to be.

    I am a white heterosexual male and and will NEVER apologize for that. Everybody should be proud of their heritage and unapologetic about it. Also, people need to quit playing the race/victim game and accept who they are and get on with life and quit making excuses/whining about yesterday and start putting the same effort into being successful from this day forward. Yes, there are injustices in the world, but name me one race that has never been the perpetrator/victim of such. It’s ti.e for people to get on with life and blaming everyone for their own self-imposed failures.

  10. It does seem to me that ESPN in this recent article with the Bisexual football star is more left sided politics on this issue. Who don’t they just report on what is happening in general world of sports? Just how P.C. has our culture or society come? Will this move to being P.C. with ESPN cost them many follow fans in the long run? Only time will tell.

  11. How’s that liberal quote, “Stnd for something even if it costs you everything” working out for ya? lIberals are finally seeing where Aerica REALLY STANDS … ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY

  12. How’s that liberal quote, “Stand for something even if it costs you everything” working out for ya? Liberals are finally seeing where America REALLY STANDS … ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF HISTORY

  13. Quit watching the NFL after watching Bradshaw rant about Trump after he called them out for the players kneeling. Met Terry one night at DCA when he was on a delayed flight to BNA when he was trying to make it a country singer. Guess he’s been around the liberals to long. Only watched the Super Bowl and that was to watch Brady!!!!
    , .

  14. I watch ESPN because it carries games that nobody else carries. I could give a hoot less about their agenda.Don’t watch network news fake or otherwise. I catch up on new events every morning on my IPAD where I pick and choose what i deem newsworthy. The best way to treat people with no respect for God and country is to ignore them. When Jesus comes he’ll straighten everything out.

  15. Don’t care what happens to ESPN or NFL, all over paid and whine like babies when they don’t get their way. We The People Don’t need them.

  16. Sadly, not enough Americans boycotted the NFL to make it go broke. Shame on you that continue to support the anti-American NFL.

    • And shame on you for not recognizing that protesting is one of the most American things we can do; and many gave their lives so that we, including you, have the right to protest. Your boycotting the NFL is just as much a form of protest, and your right, as those who took a knee. Or, in your mind, is protesting only good for those things you agree with?

  17. We have not watched an NFL game in 2 years now. If most people who watch the NFL, buy tickets and memorabilia would boycott an entire season, they would learn their lessons. Don’t hang your hat on an athlete or NFL player who missed his called and should have been a political activist. I hope he costs the NFL billions in income before they understand that their most important asset is not the players or the sponsors but THE FANS!!!!!!

  18. ESPN needs to do more to rid itself of its liberal bias. And to add on, they stirred the political pot in a college football documentary a week ago. They had one nutty professor talk about how during segregation, college football players used football as a way to showcase white supremacy. They also pointed out how the guy who drew Uncle Sam also drew a racist drawing of black college football players a decade prior. They also had a guy who felt segregated schools used integration as a way to destroy HBCUs and used “black labor” to achieve “white wealth.”

    Regarding Michael Sam, he never played in a game, but he was on a couple of practice squads. If it weren’t for the media circus, he might’ve been active for a game. I blame them for him not making it past practice squad player and nearly going undrafted.

  19. I view sports for entertainment. I don’t need a lecture on how I vote, or what I feel about those who disagree with me politically or sexually… espn needs to stick with entertaining us or they will cease to exist sooner, rather than later.

  20. WHO cares! I haven’t watched an NFL game, or the felons on the field, since kophucknic took a knee. THE NFL is dead. College games are real and our Friday night high school games have more excitement than the paid players’ games. They play with heart and not for dollars.

  21. All lefties are cancer to what is moral according to the bible. i do not watch ESPN cancelled my ESPN PLUS and have not missed it one bit!! the same with shopping Target, ben a jerry’s’,Dicks,Macy’s, Kellogs,

  22. Can’t these guys just do the work they’re paid for without involving us in their private lives and political slants? I don’t give a Rat’s behind who this kid sleeps with. This is the big league buddy,and football fans don’t care what your sexual orientation is, either. If you can’t catch, throw, block, tackle or run. we’re going to think you’re a lousy player whether you’re straight, gay or bi. As for the NFL…you’re still on everyone’s short list for the kaepernick/lemmings/kneeling debacle. Add to that being such a puss-cake in NOT enforcing the terms of the nfl contract. …”hand on heart, helmet in left hand.” Promoting a bi-sexual football player isn’t going to make our hearts puffy because you think jumping on someone’s bandwagon is going to put you back in the good graces of a failing nfl audience.

  23. I quit watching ESPN when Max and Stephen started going on tirades on the political hot points of the day.
    I watched the channel for SPORTS, not their opinions. If I want to know how the Giants are doing, I get out my IPad and look, without some “sports announcers exposing their own opinions. I don’t care what they think, especially when they are full of their own self importance.
    As a ESPN watcher since their inception, watching stuff I had no idea what the rules were, I will never watch the channel again

  24. This is the ONLY thing these networks care about!!! I don’t give a damn about the NFL or ESPN……this network was set up to report and carry sporting events, NOT as a venue for the liberal hacks to politically grandstand upon a stage!!! I don’t support the National Felons League or any of the networks for that matter….they can all go straight to hell!!!

  25. Trump is not the problem. The problem is the spiritual part of the human race that lost the touch of what G-D has taught us to the areana of no accountability not responsibility for the truth B-T-W get a real job and see if you can pull that crappy there only to find out how fast the revolving door works

  26. ESPN please stick to sports. Maybe I will start watching your channels again some day… I will not listen to some political hack moron trying to force immorality upon the public….

  27. I dropped my Sports Illusrated magazine subscription 10 years ago because of their writers ever increasing liberal views. I haven’t watched ESPN in several years for the same reason. Sports fans want sports reporting not a liberal agenda shoved in their faces.
