Fox Sports disrespecting fans with World Cup dishonesty

What time do you want to meet for lunch? Be there at 1pm, but I don’t come until 2pm to eat.

That’s how Fox Sports promotes the start times of the World Cup in a dishonest way. However, it is disrespectful, not unexpected.

For eight years on Monday in the game that represents the United States against Wales, Fox’s pictures have been saying “part starts at 1.”

One problem? The game was at 2.

When others do this, too, it’s too bad when the event is worldwide in Qatar with the time difference making the start times unfamiliar to fans.

For Tuesday morning’s Argentina game, Fox Sports has recommended a 4 am broadcast, even though the game starts at 5 am.

Who needs an extra hour of sleep? Also, putting the fans on Alexi Lalas in the first game is a cruel and unusual punishment at any hour.

At the height of confidence on Monday morning, England’s performance in crushing Iran, player-by-player Ian Darke, with 68 and the chops to do what he wants, added that the United States match will start at 2pm But that’s not the case. custom. We haven’t heard another Fox Sports broadcaster do it in two days of coverage.

Iger’s impact on ESPN

Bob Iger’s return to Disney will have ramifications for ESPN. That’s probably a good thing for ESPN, as Iger was a sponsor during his early tenure at Disney. (How could he not since its earnings allow him to buy so many other things?) Iger chose Jimmy Pitaro as the head of ESPN so he may want to keep it with the same way. Iger also has a strong relationship with the NBA, which likely bodes well for Disney/ABC/ESPN’s potential relationship with the league when new TV rights deals come up for renewal in 2025. That said, Iger was undecided. Disney stock jump and his return because he was not willing to change course. … One very interesting question, “What if?” If Iger had returned as the head of Disney last year, would Al Michaels, who is one of Iger’s friends, end up returning to “Monday Night Football?” That would have changed the entire landscape of free NFL TV coverage we’ve seen recently.
