ESPN always screws the second game of the evening, and fans of whatever teams are playing have to miss the first 5-12 minutes of the game. This is invariable. But missing the entire first half of Duke-Gonzaga was just too much.
Yes, double overtime is exciting. Certainly fans of Pitt and Oklahoma State deserve to see their game. But other fans deserve to see their games too. And it's not like we are getting this stuff for free - we pay for it, and on a near-nightly basis, the second half of the audience is getting screwed.
ESPN has the ability to do something about this. Isn't there an outraged attorney out there who will take them on? Jay Bilas aside, the boys from Bristol need a good kick in the ass now and then to keep their attention focused where it should be - on the customers.
