ESPN News.....no respect, no highlights

It`s 10:30pm sunday night, and I have yet to see a highlight reel of the Saints/Falcons game on ESPN News. The Saints/Falcons rivalry is one of the biggest in the NFL, yet ESPN would rather show "The Purple People" over and over and over...they even gave Randy Moss 5 minutes on an after-game news conference and it was horribly boring. But yet we can`t even get a 20 second highlight reel.
I don`t recall seeing a highlight reel on ESPN from last weeks win over Chicago either. Am I wrong here or has anyone else noticed this?

ESPN doesn\'t want to jump on the Saints\' bandwagon. They\'ve done it before and been burned (remember when the Saints were #1 in the power rankings last year?). Plus, the Randy Moss highlight was a truly amazing play, definitely the highlight of yesterday\'s action. Whether he deserved a 5-minute interview, I doubt. But it was a great play.

It was phenomenal, the first 400 times they played it. After that it got a little old.

i dont know about on espnnews but on nfl primetime on espn they showed the saints-falcons game 2nd with about 5 min of highlights saying, that this was more like the saints that everyone was used to seeing... but of course they showed the dallas cowbums first, kissing parcells ass for about 20 min.

I wasn`t really expecting ESPN to jump on anybody`s bandwagon, I would just like ESPN to give some fair air time to our team.
