Hey ESPN, Give Us Some Respect!

I was checking on the ESPN page for my New York Metropolitans (yes, they lost their fifth game in a row tonight and will probably be on the end of another beating tomorrow, against Atlanta) when I looked over to the side box for "New York Area Teams." The Mets were there, so were the Yankees, and the Giants and Jets, as were the Knicks, Rangers, and Islanders. But not the Red Bulls.

I know that ESPN gives soccer/football very little coverage on its American page, but it was a box that could easily have fit the Red Bulls' logo in as well. I also know that we don't fill our seats at Red Bull Arena, but there are ten thousand or so dedicated fans and probably many thousands more who keep up with the team's results. How does it harm ESPN to promote another part of their website that deals with soccer? (It doesn't.)

Quite simply, there is no reason for this, and it's probably not a hard fix for them. We are a New York Area sports team, ESPN. Give us some respect.
