Boycott Monday Night Football

I'm asking outraged sports fans to let ESPN/Disney hear it! Below is my letter to ESPN, complaining about the Path to 9/11. As you may know, they are HQ'd in New York.

This year, ESPN will host Monday Night Football. We should boycott this program and let them know why. Politely.

A boycott of football will shake them. They think football fans are all conservative or "bubbas" or both. MNF announcers have a conservative bias that has long been a problem. I am a New England patriot fan, they will show the Pats on MNF and I'll be listening to that game on the radio.

Please join this boycott if you can. Give up one game a week for the good of our country.

My letter:

Dear ESPN (Disney):

I very much regret that I will no longer watch your sports programming (which I love).

As much as love football, and my Patriots, some things are more important. I love my country more, and cannot support a network owned by a company that stabs people like me in the back.

I was in New York on 9/11. As far as I'm concerned, the tragedy is ongoing, because of the deliberate attempt by the powerful to use that event for thier own purposes.

If Disney had seen fit to distribute the Michael Moore film a few years back, and show this apparent right wing slanted "docudrama", then in a way it would be performing a service to us by letting even radical opinions be aired. But to attempt to surpress one and donate the other (it's running commercial free) really shows me that Disney is part of the problem, and is pushing the kind of propaganda that results in such things as the Iraq fiasco and people (like me) who worked near Wall street being told the air was safe way too soon after 9/11.

Al Qaeda is dangerous. We need and deserve an honest approach to the threat, not manipulation. Really, it's gone to far.

Personally, some of you at ESPN must live and work in New York. Can't you see how insulting this is to the many, many liberal New Yorkers who came out to cheer the rescuers and to light the candles ?

It makes me sick and it should make you sick too.

Sincerely,

(my real name)

Re: Boycott Monday Night Football

I wrote a letter to Disney promising never to promote another end of the year field trip to Disney World(I'm a teacher in Florida.) I'm also on the Scholastic mailing list and was very pleased with the way they responded to the public outrage.

What business do teachers have promoting Disney's product anyway?
