Monday night 11/14/2011 at Lambeau Field

How many people have seen this? I would rather see this before a game, than all the hype dedicated to the teams playing that night. How much effort went into this display, and how much would regular Joes like me and you have enjoyed it? You decide:

This is what ESPN failed to show you Monday night, 11/14/2011.

Apparently, they thought their commercials were more important than showing this scene for about 5 seconds.

    Didn’t see this. It would be easy to blame the persut of the “almighty dollar”, by ESPN. It goes deeper than that. When you have media outlets who consistently choose not to air examples of pride in ones country-in ones national identity-in those who have, and are providing for the defense of same; you have a serious breech of ethics and or conscience.

    If you are ever a part of something as complicated, yet individually, as simple, as changing a cardboard tile over your head when cued to do so…or to be part of an honor guard at same… the moment is moving in its own way, and at the very least, you come away with a feeling of “right”…of acknowledging the positive.

    Apparently, ESPN (and I suspect, most other media outlets) are far too nuanced and sophisticated to get and or appreciate this. It is their loss. Personally in the shrinking of their collective souls, and “at large”, with the loss of viewership/revenue.

    I noticed a definite change in ESPN around the time it was acquired by ABC/Disney. They have become more of a liberal opinion site that happens to show sports, rather than a sports channel.

      They are far and away the biggest critics of Tebow, so I agree with your assessment.

    It’s truly sad ESPN could not show this wonderful dedication to our Armed Forces. It’s so sad they had to put a commercial in it’s place. Unfortunately that’s America these days.

    Very cool – glad someone shared even if ESPN felt they had something better to do! (Sarcasm towards ESPN – they should have made it happen!!!!)

    It seems to me that they could find some time to show things like this…. but on the other side of the coin, remember who pays to get these events aired. Commercial time is pretty expensive. But there is enough BS going on during games while the announcers and color guys are broadcasting that they could show these and let them talk in the background
