I'm not criticizing ESPN -- at least for that.

It also seems to me that the reason you don't hear much about niche sports on Fox is that it doesn't have a Sports Center type show. It has a MLB Whiparound and talking heads but not much in the way of anything goes programs.

That you don't hear about the EPL does seem a little strange since Fox/Murdoch also had control of Sky Sports in the UK, so it isn't that it had to add people to get a handle on it. Maybe it has more to do with it being Rupert Murdoch than editorial.
