.@Marcotti: ESPN suits hide Ronaldo on a pay channel that few Americans will pay for since the vast majority have no idea what Ronaldo or Serie A are. The smarter NFL/MLB model is to sell only fan-only, out-of-market games while putting the big games on TV. Please educate them.

.@Marcotti: you know #soccer might as well be Pro Knitting in the USA, right? I'm sure there are knitting games/leagues/championships, but unless you're really into it you don't know about it. Soccer is like that because @MLS & @USSoccer don't work to get on ESPN/network.

.@Marcotti: #BBC had live #Olympics #soccer games w/o announcers & it was great. It'd cost #ESPN maybe $5,000 to do the same & they'd make 10x or more in ads. Why won't they do that?

.@Marcotti: #ESPN is currently playing girls' volleyball. While that's a step up from endless Ball in Hoop & #kneeball, why won't the show more #soccer? How much would foreign, offbrand, tape-delayed, local feed soccer cost them? They've played some of that, why not more?

.@Marcotti: #ESPN is hyping #USAvJAM. More Americans could see it if MX had won: it'd be on Univision not hidden away on FS1. #MAGA

.@Marcotti @CBurleyESPN: #ESPN probs are because they show whole games maybe 15% of the day if that. Talk about #soccer but rarely show gms.

.@Marcotti: do you think #ESPN showing tennis & wrestling rather than any kind of soccer & baseball - even tape-delay - might be an issue?

.@JonChampionJC @Marcotti: #ESPN would pay less for foreign, offbrand, local feed soccer games and might get better ratings. Why don't they?

.@JonChampionJC @Marcotti: #ESPN plays 3 basketball games on 3 channels at same time. What sort of ratings do 2nd tier college games get?
