For the past few years, I've let my frustrations be known about the self anointed "World Wide Leader in Sports" ESPN, and how they are a shell of integrity compared to their former self.

Much like Al Davis and the Raiders in the 70s and 80s, ESPN was a shiny beacon of sports journalism in it's infancy, up until the turn of the century.

And just like Davis, they've become a joke in the industry. If the past two years of wall-to-wall Tim Tebow coverage haven't been enough, then hopefully you've noticed how they've become notorious for not giving proper credit on breaking news stories that aren't doled out by their little henchmen and their well quaffed hair.

Well, yesterday Sports by Brooks, a site that is pretty much a joke, broke a story about LSU head coach Les Miles talking about Gumping his way over to Arkansas and getting offered phat stacks by the Razorbacks to wear hats and Inspector Gadget his way to wins on their sidelines.

One ESPN anchor gave proper credit to SbB in the first telling of the news, but apparently an email went out tell everyone to stop.

IMPORTANT: DO NOT CREDIT SPORTS BY BROOKS FOR THE ORIGINAL STORY ABOUT MILES HAVING AN OFFER. CREDIT REPORTS

Really? Are you that lame ESPN to think that your viewers have no clue to where stories are sourced, and believe their the beacon of all things sports news? Who are you? Vince McMahon?
