    Why do ESPN and other sports journalists constantly criticize and badmouth wrestling and wrestling fans? If some of their pundits don't like it, fine, but don't put people down because some people do. This idiotic guy named Colin Cowherd on ESPN radio was rambling about steroids and how he believes that all wrestlers are "roid infested monkeys" (imagine the reaction if someone called the NFL or NBA a "crime infested jungle"), and that wrestling fans are "overgrown children" and "booger eaters" who are "one notch below other sports fans intellectually." Wow. Why does ESPN constantly have to go out of its way to slander wrestling fans?

    gsm1988, because ESPN is full of sanctimonious, wind-bag, liberal candyasses who worship the caste system. I stopped watching that pro-caste, Marxist drivel years ago.

    Speaking as a pro wrestling fan..I agree with you gsm1988..Can't remember the last time I ate a booger. [​IMG] Alot of these same assclowns look down on MMA fans as well. That being said, pro wrestling is often a guilty pleasure these days and is clearly not the family friendly industry that I grew up with in the 80's. I don't exactly walk into my church on a Weds evening wearing a pro wrestling shirt but I will wear a MMA one.

    I have to ask: is it because pro wrestling and MMA are both majority White that they are frowned upon so much? It is my belief that the only reason hockey, tennis, and golf are not treated like that is because they have been respected sports for many years now, while wrestling has been treated like a laughing stock for a long time. As for MMA, It's still relatively new, and It's easier for ESPN to not take it seriously and give it the coverage that other sports receive.

    Womens' pro basketball is relatively new, but that sure hasn't stopped ESPN
    from covering it because its mostly black.

    I think that may indeed be part of the reason. The other key driver is these wanna-be elitists in the (Globalist Elite owned) "mainstream" media look down their noses at these "barbaric" combat sports because they're oh-so enlightened, etc. That's just the general mindset of pinko codsacks like Peter Gammons, Bob Costas, etc.
