    Default The theme of the ESPN coverage is all wrong

    Its not about pain and suffering! Its about techniques, excitement, fun, athleticism.

    What are they concentrating on? This guy has a stepmom. Guys will do anything it takes even with a broken leg. This sport is tough.

    No little kid watching or his parents will ever decide to try this this hellbound sport like this.

    Tough becomes fun when you like it and do it everyday!

    They also need to show more first round match up during the season so there is beeter chance of high scoring, falls and all around television excitement. These matches are only exciting to those who have a vested interest, not for bringing on new fans.

    I'd have to agree. It was nice, however to get full coverage and live. The coverage on ESPN360.com was also great. It was exciting but a very rough finals. Alot more injuries this year than I had ever seen in the past.

    They started talking about fun stuff the last few weights. In the beginning though it was depressing listening them repeat 10 times how Mendes grew up without a real mother and then when guys got hurt instead of playing it down they showed the injured wrestler full screen screaming and then said how these guys go through pain no matter what.

    That will scare away an average viewer. Why not concentrate more on how these guys have bodies that girls always dream about in a guy and stuff like that?

    they should have done something like the video on Flo of the coaches with the "dance moves"

    The announcer from ESPN was frickin terrible. Blatnick and coach gibbons were good but that other guy sounded like a complete donkey with some of his lame ass comments.
    Where is Chertow? Ken makes it exciting and gives viewers a feel of the atmosphere.
    Overall It was awesome how much was aired live just need more wrestling guys doing the commentary

    Apparently, I was on TV a bunch, so the coverage couldn't have been too bad.
