I enjoy reading complex magazine in my spare time hopefully all of you will enjoy this article that I 100 percent agree with if only they brought up the bias against ND

I really don't think ESPN has a bias against ND......but with that being said I agree with most of the stuff this article says

ESPN doesn't have an anti-ND bias, they really don't have a concrete opinion on us. They go with whatever brings in the most money. They hated us when we were bad and now that our success will bring them lots of money, they're all over us.

Yeah ESPN employs Lou Holtz, Mike Golic, Hannah Storm, Dick Vitale, and several others with major connections to Notre Dame. I don't think there's really a bias either way

There are more networks biased against the Irish imo than ESPN. While I don't always care for their sensationalistic media presentation, they often will call it down the middle. I was a bit shocked when they were helping Manti's Heisman candidacy along, although they helped Manziel quite a bit too. That said, John Saunders can suck a dick, same with Jesse Palmer. Those a-holes love to report when the Irish aren't doing well, and they'll do it with **** eating grins on their faces.

F ESPN. They don't have a bias towards anything but money. They sink to the lowest common denominator in order to stir up controversy and get eyeballs on their crap. Look no further than Rob Parker, a known hack, debating RGIII's "blackness." ESPN can come out and apologize for that all they want but they got what they wanted: headlines.
