You aren't wrong, but we are adults and have to take responsibility to not being taken in by this bullshit. I was, so I'm not playing some holier than thou bullshit. The sports media is just so bad in North America that expecting them to change or improve is kind of futile. So I'm not as much mad as I am utterly unsurprised.
Totally spot on with the second sentence too. People should be embarassed and lose their jobs, but I won't hold my breath.
