Class Action Suit

I know this sounds ridiculous, but I'm considering a class action suit against ESPN/ABC/Walt Disney and the Hearst Corporation.

I'm sorry, but this isn't so much about the Chiefs, but rather the blatant ignorance and bias displayed by the entire ESPN staff regarding last night's telecast.

I have already contacted ESPN directly, and my next voice of contact will be Rosa M. Gatti, Senior Vice President, and then a letter to the NFL.

I wasn't home all day yesterday, so I didn't set my DVR to record the game, so if anyone recorded the game I'd appreciate it if you PM me. If you're interested in filing a class-action suit, you may PM me as well.

Again, this isn't about the Chiefs- this is about presenting a fair, balanced, and unbiased program for all viewers. Sterling Sharpe must be wearing Randy Moss's briefs or something, 'cause I was, like most people have already indicated, sickened and disgusted by the blatant bias given to Randy Moss and the rest of the Raiders organization. It's a good gawddamn thing we didn't play a "Randy Moss" drinking game, 'cause we'd all have alcohol poisoning before the first quarter ever ended.

This was a football game between two historic franchises. A game matching arguably one of the best rivalries in sports. A game which featured both current and future Hall of Famers on both sides of the ball. This game displayed two teams that personify what football is all about, and what is should be all about. It is what football fans crave. It was a game loaded with stars that received little to absolutely no mention.

I'm sick and tired of watching a football game every now and then only to hear a biased view from an ex-jock who's only interest is to suck the cock of his "special" player. I'm not interested in making any money, I'm only interested in giving the fans a voice to expose their displeasure, so we might be able to enjoy future games without all the biasness.

BTW- Great game for the Chiefs, however the public wouldn't know that. To the average football fan, the Chiefs were lucky and Randy Moss would have won the game had they just thrown the ball to him every *****ing play. ***** you Sterling Sharpe. You'll be hearing from me- the pissed-off football fan.

If everyone did that, there would be no one posting

Didn't mean to come off so harsh. It would be nice if we could do something to them for that horrid announcing crew.

Instead, it was nothing more than a bloody Moss orgy and I simply couldn’t take it anymore.

First of all, I had no intention of filing a suit for monetary gains, and I would never take it upon myself to solicit an attorney about something as ridiculous as a class action suit nor would I ever want that kind of media attention. It was nothing more than a feeble attempt at generating interest in people contacting ESPN to complain about the quality of last night’s programming. I should have just entitled the thread, “Write to ESPN and tell them to

I did it myself- composed an email to ESPN stating my disgust with the choice of announcers and their bias behavior on national TV. I should have left it at that. But, I couldn’t…Here’s a copy of what I sent ESPN:

You guys are a bunch of *****tards.

Sincerely,

A disgruntled football fan who’s out of beer.


Take it for what it’s worth.

No, seriously- I feel pretty dumb now that I started such a thread. This is your opportunity to sue me for posting such idiocy on the web and taking up valuable ChiefsPlanet space.

I will now retire to the corner of the room and avoid the Planet for a very long time as I’m rather embarrassed about all of this. So, sue me.
Your thread sure entertained me today. Please continue with your creativity.

It would have mattered. The Raiders would have kicked a winning FG on 4th down at the end to put us in a deep hole.

Well, maybe, but then Dante would have run back the ensuing kickoff for a touchdown.

Dude, we already knew you were a dumbass. It's not like this thread outed you or anything. Kotter told us about it a long time ago. He has some special spider sense or something.

OK... some of the stuff on this thread I can understand, like the thing about making the cheerleaders wear teenier uni's. But the "refs favor Oakland" thing is totally through the looking glass. And Moss gets all the spotlight wherever he goes. It was just the same when he wore Purple. The dude is on pace to break the Rice Records - he'll get all the glitter and glamour until he falls off of that pace. Difference is, now its the AFCW that has to put up with it.

Great pub for the Raiderz, and fills the stands as well. Jes plug your ears whenever you see the pundits begin to genuflect towards Moss. I hit the mute whenever that horrible woman on the sidelines does her Oprah thing about the players family lives and their inner feelings. Just mute out the Mossly adulation.

(Why do they let that woman blabber about stuff when the game is on? Sometimes she's still yacking about someone's brother as the ball is hiked. I just don't get it. She's absolutely horrible.)
