Why ESPN Is Losing Favor

This, and many other things are causing people to shy away from ESPN.

On the evening of 14 November 2011, the NFL’s Green Bay Packers hosted the Minnesota Vikings in a football match-up held at Lambeau Field in Green Bay which was televised by ESPN as part of that network’s Monday Night Football schedule. As the previous Friday (11 November) had been Veterans Day, the Packers announced they would be staging a number of Veteran’s Day-themed events before the game and during halftime:

The Green Bay Packers’ Monday night game against the Minnesota Vikings was dedicated to showing appreciation to the U.S. Military through a variety of activities in recognition of Veteran’s Day.

Upon entering Lambeau Field fans received an American flag, compliments of the Wisconsin Army National Guard and Oshkosh Defense. Attendees also participated in an in-stadium USAA card stunt to thank veterans and current military for their service.

This is what ESPN failed to show you Monday night, 11/14/2011.

Apparently, they thought their commercials were more important than showing this scene for about 5 seconds.
