Default Re: Notre Dame, NBC agree to five-year deal through 2015

Anyway....I wanted to make a bigger point here.

People like to gripe about ESPN. My chief complaint with ESPN is they push themselves as the brand instead of whatever sport they're broadcasting.

Quote:
NBC Sports chairman Dick Ebersol said the network doesn't look at year-to-year results when it comes to Notre Dame, calling the football program a premier brand that defines the network as much as the Olympics, the NFL and the U.S. Open golf championship.
NBC Sports, much like CBS, defines itself by what it broadcasts.

I prefer that method to the self promotion that you get with ESPN and Fox.
