Tired of ESPN always trying to discriminate Ohio State? Are you especially tired of hearing about the lawsuit ESP'ons have put on tOSU to try to get the Jim Tressel emails? Well I am & have came up some creative ideas we can pay back ESP'ons. First and foremost lets pay for BILLBOARDS Signs to be posted up along the highways of Interstate 70 & 77 that simple say, you guessed it, "BOYCOTT ESPN"!!!.

Well I Just got off the Phone with a Electronic Billboard Advertising Company in Columbus, the guy told me $500 for a week to a month, told him what it was about & the guy got all excited & wants to be apart of it! Simply put.... BOYCOTT ESPN!!! Who wants to be apart of it also?

Gonna set up an account with the Advertising company tomorrow,,, let me know who wants to donate money to post the Billboard > BOYCOTT ESPN < If a lot of people want to donate to the cause we can get more than one Billboard, although if 20 people each donate $20 it will supply enough $ for 1 Billboard in Columbus! Thanks & again BOYCOTT ESPN!!! Looking to also post one up in Cleveland, Cincinnati & Canton areas.

In light of ESPN trying to sue Ohio State to get the Jim Tressel Iv been thinking of ways to hurt Espn where their pocket is & what supports their drama, its SPONSORS that keep Espn on its feet... So its time to chop the knees off of Espn,,, Write & Call Espn's SPONSORS, Threaten to boycott their products as well if they dont put pressure on Espn to drop this thuggish girl drama!!!

you should look into posting one in Bristol. Most of the residents there hate that place anyway.

 

Maybe 11w goods should have a shirt that says boycott ESPN and have the proceeds go to keeping these bilboards up!

I want a t-shirt that says "F*&K ESPN on it.

I have a long list of ideas that I am going to post when I have time...bottom line is we gotta be all in or it won"t work....

Totally agree.  I like the idea of billboards, they just cost money.  Plus, I do think it could cause more media types like Rome and Cowherd and others to just keep piling on our delusional fanbase and whatever kind of junk they could spew.  Many fans may not care.  That's why I liked the idea of writing letters.  Put the pressure on ESPN's sugar daddy or daddies. 

As chief says though, if the fan base isn't all in, it won't do any good.

More than agree!!!

We should send one of these t shirts to Bruce Feldman.

Not sure if making billboards will actually do anything except cost money and help our fanbase as a whole look even more thin-skinned and mockable.

btalbert25's picture

I definitely agree

Brady's picture

I agree as well.  I definitely would wear a F*CK ESPN t-shirt but the billboard makes us look pathetic.  It would just be throwing fuel on the fire and would prolong the buckeye bashing even longer in my opinion.

... It amazes me people think this way.... CONSIDERING WITH A BOYCOTT BILLBOARD "OR" >WITHOUT ONE!!!!!!!!!! THEY WILL STILL TALK CRAP ABOUT US BUT EVENTUALLY THE SPONSORS OF ESPN WILL NOT LIKE ALL THE BAD PUBLICITY! AND THE SPONSORS ARE WHAT KEEP ESPN GOING!

Taking up a billboard in Columbus, Ohio is going to do nothing but get people in Ohio to nod their heads, and people elsewhere to shake theirs. You want to take it to ESPN? Look into getting signage in Bristol. Or, like you did in another post, get sponsor contact info out there.

I view it as very similar to the fight here in DC for voting rights - you can complain to people around you who have the same views all you want, but until you convince people elsewhere that it's a worthy argument you do nothing but self-gratify. Taking up a billboard in Columbus won't do anything to help.

I think calling or writing can do some justice. Also I think everyone keeps forgetting about Disney who owns ESPN. Call them daily and tell them you don't plan to take your family to any disney park or buy any of thier retail goods.... Think about the pressure they might put on ESPN Sr Mgt... If a high percentage of people did that, I think it would get thier notice.

 

Walt Disney mail address:

500 S Buena Vista St

Burbank, Ca 91521

818-560-1000

George Bodenheimer is Co-Chair of ESPN and ABC Sports for Disney.

Also note that Steve Jobs (Apple - iphone, Ipad, etc) is on the board of directors so we can also threaten to not purchase apple products.

Sheryl Sanbend is Facebook COO who is also on board of directors for Disney. Writer her also and threaten to broadcast on facebook your displeasure with her being on the board as well as quit using the service.

 

Just a few more options. Lets get this going. We are the largest university and have a large fanbase accross the world. If we can get a grass root effort it can have some interesting results.
