The Fresno Bee's Rory Appleton discusses ESPN President John Skipper's recent comments on e-sports.
"It's not a sport -- it's a competition," Skipper said. "Chess is a competition. Checkers is a competition. Mostly, I'm interested in doing real sports." Exactly.. And just because they have broadcast a few events in the past doesn't mean one guy can't feel that way..
But espn does broadcast poker which is no different than video games
Its just filler.. They broadcast dota too.. And they usually don't even produce the content, just rebroadcast a feed.. Without context, which the author leaves out, its just a quote.. And a truthful one at that.. But you don't know what question he was asked.. Will ESPN ever shift focus to esports? (for example)
