In next month, ESPN interrupts 24/7 basket w 6 soccer games. 2 @ 3am, 3 on same day. Did ESPN CEO Coulter take a day off, or are ESPN execs on the spectrum? RT @SebiSalazarFUT Got questions for @CBurleyESPN @ShakaHislop @SteveNicol61? Get them to us now for #FCExtratime

.@CBurleyESPN: from now to Dec 26, ESPN only has 3 soccer games on network & 2 of them are early morning. Can you imagine them doing that to basketball or kneeball? Soccer needs to get on network to get popular. Please urge ESPN suits to put some Plus games on network.

Another win for Chelsea. Been an incredible start to the season bearing in mind how late Sarri arrived on the scene.

.@CBurleyESPN: 99% of Americans have no idea what you're talking about because #soccer isn't considered a regular sport. ESPN isn't much help: they could be showing it year round every few days, even offbrand, foreign, tape-delayed, local feed. Instead they marginalize it.

.@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.
