ESPN Facing Major Criticism For Making Fun of High School QB On ‘C’mon Man’ Segment (VIDEO + TWEETS)
ESPN is facing some heavy criticism for a segment it aired before its Monday Night Football game between the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears.
Every week, ESPN’s analysts do a “Come on, man!” segment where they basically call out different players for making dumb mistakes.
This week, a high school football quarterback made the lowlight reel because he accidentally kneeled down before the clock hit zero. The premature kneel allowed his opponent to kick a game-winning field goal as time expired.
Moss as well as the other analysts faced heavy criticism online:
The school’s head coach called out ESPN:
“It’s disheartening to see ESPN run a segment like this on a kid. I as HIS HEAD COACH take full responsibility. Any criticism needs to be directed towards me,” he tweeted.
The quarterback spoke on it as well:
“I took my eye off the clock. However, criticizing me off of one play does not define me as a quarterback. I am much better than that! I love my team and my coaches! Thanks for having my back,” he wrote.
