They don’t bother to learn names right. We know that already, now they do this. The clip of King throwing to Postma is labeled, “Houston’s RB connects with QB for TD.” King was lined up as a wideout and had no rushing plays that game. King is listed as a QB on ESPN. I thought, well maybe since the game was on CBS, they mislabeled it and then ESPN just blindly copies the clip. Nope. CBS labels the play “Trickery! Houston’s QB Postma catches TD pass” and then in the description puts “Houston’s WR D’Eriq King throws a 22-yard TD pass to QB Kyle Postma on a trick play.”
It’s obviously not just us they get it all wrong with. It’s no wonder that ESPN has been in a perpetual decline with subscribers over the past 6 years. That’s the problem with sports entertainment. There is no competition for viewership. A channel has the rights to the game, your two choices to watch it are go to the game or watch it on that channel. Imagine if two channels got rights to a game. Then the channels would have more pressure to have quality broadcasts to keep viewers.
