    This poll on ESPN's Page 2 is just lovely.

    http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/index

    What would you most like to see this weekend?

    - Steelers beat Patriots
    - Santana traded to anyone but the Red Sox
    - Kevin Garnett blow out his knee
    - All of the Above


    Wow. And they say the Pats are classless. Face, meet mirror.

    Between the MNF broadcast where anouncers are openly rooting for one team over another, to the mistakes they increasingly make on ESPN News to the tabloid crap on their website, it would seem that the ESPN/ABC empire sinking to new lows. WEEI is talking about it now.

    As much as I find this distasteful (and that's a lot), the worst thing about it is that there is no button for none of the above.... Is there any petition we can raise to the ombudsman? At this stage boycotting is not enough.

    I used the "contact us" section to give my feedback. I don't even care about the first two, but to support people who are hoping for an injury is just disgusting.

    I chose B. Hopefully to the Dodgers, and especially not the Yankees.

    Not surprisingly, most people want to see the Patriots lose.

    i didnt vote anything, is there any bigger crap then that? ESPN should be sued by the city, state and area of Boston/MA/NE

    What should they sue them for? Pain and suffering?

    That would be the *****iest move ever, surpassing the Jet season ticket holders attempt to sue the Patriots.

    C'mon, we can get a "no class" action suit started.

    How's that one working out for the Jets fans? I'm sure that one was laughed out of the courtroom.

    i guess so, but theres gotta be SOME way to hammer ESPN about this, i mean, i can take the media's adversity, but this is too much, they are openly supporting something bad against my home area, and thats something that i dont take lightly

    I went looking around ESPN's website to try and find out the final results of this poll and it looks like they've removed any reference to it at all.

    But we have evidence that it happened.

    I tried to read it, but I tripped over a Martina Navratilova story. I find lesbians distracting.

    You're a little late to the party. As soon as the story broke and the Boston media started asking questions that same day, they pulled the question.

    Looks like they changed the poll.

    Now the poll asks what is more likely to happen
    - pats go 16-0 and win superbowl
    - fins go 0-16
    - celtics or spurs win 72 games
    - NC goes undefeated

    Wow that original poll is just disgusting and a disgrace. I see why they quickly removed it now.

    And cowards. Hit and run. No balls.

    Hope the Pats put that under lucite and hang it on the wall until February. Make a copy and send it to the Celts. Make another copy and send it to Fenway.

    Freaking ingrates.
