If you randomly selected a group of people and asked how they felt about their currently employer, I would bet majority would have something bad or negative to say . But those same people probably wouldn’t go on live television to voice their displeasure.
Well, that’s what Joey Galloway did. Galloway is currently employed by ESPN, and apparently isn’t shy when it comes to his support for the Big Ten conference or the Ohio State Buckeyes.
“ESPN will shut down if an SEC team doesn’t get in the playoff. That’s it. We’ll be looking for somewhere else to work,” Galloway, a former Ohio State wide receiver, said Thursday during a “College Football Live” broadcast at SEC Media Days in Hoover, Ala.
Remember, ESPN is doing direct business with the SEC. They partnered last year to launch the SEC Network.
Galloway didn’t necessarily say anything that isn’t true. ESPN has a direct bias when it comes to who is selected for the College Football Playoff. Those who argue that point, are lying to themselves. It’s simple, if a SEC team makes the playoffs, its more money and revenue for ESPN. If they don’t, then it is less money. What is so hard about that?
The conversation came about after Paul Finebaum and Galloway were discussing the top Heisman candidates. You can listen to the clip below.
