(Deadspin)   Here's everything ESPN covered before mentioning Jason Collins. As you might guess from the disgusting video of Skip Bayless mid-comment, it's a whole lot of Tebow (video)   (deadspin.com) divider line 6

I heard "butt fumble" 2 seconds in, so, it sounds like they were covering Jason Collins

Qellaqan: Tiberius Gracchus: NakedReporta: seumasokelly: I think that if ESPN had broken the story, we'd have had a 3-hour special in primetime. Since it was SI, it's a non-event.

Agreed. I'm just saying we could look at it like that. I think the fact that it was a 35-year-old vet who's essentially a free-agent second center made it easier for ESPN to say, "Meh." Not trying to negate the import of this, but I think we can agree that had it been a guy still under contract that was a starter or a 6th or 7th man, ESPN runs that story first, Tebow be damned. At least, I'd like to think ESPN still has a modicum of journalistic integrity. Could be wrong on that. There's an equally good chance this story doesn't make Pg 1 of the NYT, either, FWIW.

35 y/o journeyman > Tebow

QFT!


Hell, I'll say it:  JaWalrus > Tebow.  At least he gets it in range of the wideout.

We could conflate the 2 stories.  Something along the lines of:

Poor Jason Collins.  I'm sure he could have been a perfectly good heterosexual if only some girl had given him an actual chance.

seumasokelly: NakedReporta: On the flip side, we could look at it like this - a 12-year NBA journeyman coming out of the closet isn't that big of a deal. And really, doesn't that say something about how far we've progressed as a society?

Now, if Tebow came out, I think the collective head of ESPN would asplode.

Exactly. But yes, I wish Tim Tebow would come out, just to watch so many sports blogs' servers go nuclear.

That's a-bingo.

Of course, if Tebow came out, even if it was in SI, ESPN would not step away from breaking news coverage until it got on-camera reactions from every NFL player and Gator alum in the nation.
