Replying to Does ESPN get paid per time they say "Shaun White"
I watched the live feed all day yesterday from the UK, had some mates around and watched the Big Air etc till about 4am; totally amazing.
What was ridiculously annoying though was the amount of times Shaun White was shown, advertised, talked about etc, I mean after every advert break they had a short feature on him; the superpipe was pretty much called the "Shaun White Superpipe" and they never even mentioned any other superpipe boarder competitors.
Sure, he's the top guy in the sport, and a US Olympic team guy; but it was just so much overkill and diminished the simply amazing tricks that everyone was throwing down in Ski Big Air and Moto Best Trick.
I mean Bobby stomps one of the besttricks I've ever seen; abd the announcers say "and shaun White hasn't even started yet" or something.
It was just stupid and annoying; but at least ESPN like him because I've heard none of the other boarder competitors do (I have no facts to base this on but I don't care).
