The New York Post reported last night that a $10 million lawsuit was filed against ESPN by a Yankees fan who was caught sleeping at a game. He claimed that he was mocked by the announcers. A few minutes ago, ESPN released a statement:
“The comments attributed to ESPN and our announcers were clearly not said in our telecast. The claims presented here are wholly without merit.”
If he is serious about this lawsuit, he’d better make sure he has a serious claim. Even if the ESPN announcers made some rude comments, stating the obvious about someone isn’t an offense. Sorry.
If you watch the video, the ESPN announcers did nothing wrong.
