.@CBurleyESPN: although his ego can be seen from space, I'd guess at least half of America has never heard of Ronaldo. Instead of explaining Serie A games/players, hyping them, showing games on network, etc. #ESPN hides most away on "plus" expecting people to just line up and pay

.@CBurleyESPN @JonChampionJC: if #ESPN hides Serie A on some sort of non-basic cable channel, that's no better than what Murdoch does. Making soccer a specialty sport hidden away on special channels marginalizes the sport, harming everyone (except for NFL/NCAA).

.@CBurleyESPN: #ESPN is playing your show (OK) but also golf (?) & boxing (?) I understand ratings, variety, etc. Why doesn't ESPN understand those by playing soccer more often than once a month or so? They've even gone back into no-baseball mode.

.@cburleyespn: I'm watching #ESPNFC, but why is that practically all the #soccer coverage on #ESPN? For a fraction of the cost of yet another basketball game, they could show a foreign/offbrand/tape-delayed/local feed soccer match. It'd help you to pitch them on doing that.

.@CBurleyESPN: while a competing network has Sunday Night Kneeball, #ESPN is playing clip shows. Plz urge them to counterprogram foreign offbrand soccer - delayed or not, local feed or not - or Caribbean baseball, etc. Give disenchanted kneeball fans an alternative.

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

.@CBurleyESPN: #ESPN spends more time talking about #soccer than showing actual soccer games. Otherwise it's basketball 24/7. Change that.

.@CBurleyESPN: @AnnCoulter says #soccer is for communists. Is she right or did she forget to wear her bike helmet one too many times?
