Fox Sports disrespecting fans with World Cup dishonesty

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

This is how Fox Sports faithfully promotes the start times of the World Cup. It’s disrespectful, though, not expected.

On Monday’s eight-year wait for the United States in Wales, Fox’s images continued to say “coverage begins at 1.”

One problem? Kickoff was 2.

While others do this, too, it is especially bad when the event takes place across the world in Qatar with a time difference that makes the starting times unusual for fans.

For Tuesday morning’s match in Argentina, Fox Sports advertised coverage starting at 4am, although the game will start at 5am.

Who needs an extra hour of sleep? In addition, charging Alexi Lalas to the fans before the game is a cruel and unusual punishment for any hour.

In the highest honesty on Monday morning, working to destroy England in Iran, footballer Ian Darke, who is 68 years old and has a platform to do what he wants, added that the game against the United States will actually start at 2 p.m. but that’s not it. period. We heard there was no Fox Sports announcer doing two days of coverage.

Of all the World Cup problems, this one is not at the top of the list. Qatar bribed the hosting of the event, which led to the games being moved from summer to winter, banning beer from being sold to fans in the stadium, and, most recently, the players were banned from wearing the rainbow-colored captain’s “OneLove” anti. – a racist arm that risks being assessed with a yellow card, if they do.

Like NBC and the Olympics, Fox did not choose the host of the Cup, but it defines how to cover it. It is understood that they are there to present the games. But you need to be there before the fire starts so the issues surrounding these games need to be part of the insurance because in the end they can be a very big deal.

First, maybe Fox Sports can tell fans the exact time to show lunch.

Iger’s influence on ESPN

Bob Iger’s return to Disney will have an impact on ESPN. It’s probably good for ESPN, as Iger was a fan during his first Disney reign. (How could he not be as his income allowed him to buy many other things?) Iger chose Jimmy Pitaro to be the head of ESPN so he probably wants to continue on a similar path. Iger also has strong ties to the NBA, which may bode well for the potential continuation of the league’s Disney/ABC/ESPN relationship when new TV rights deals are up for renewal in 2025. That said, Iger didn’t make Disney’s stock jump with his comeback because he didn’t want to change course. … One very interesting question, “What if?” If Iger had returned to the head of Disney a year ago, would Al Michaels, who is friends with Iger, have ended up returning to “Night Football?” That would change the entire landscape of the crazy NFL TV organization we’ve witnessed.
