Is there a way to access and manage a ESPN fantasy baseball team from the iPhone/itouch? by Sammy Q: I've look all through ESPN's mobile site and it isn't there. I also checked the app store, and nothing from ESPN came up... It's strange because ESPN has put multiple commercials on TV for managing fantasy baseball teams from a mobile device. Thanks!

A: Well I think there's an App for it.. At least there was one for Fantasy Football but it costed $10 so screw that. I have an iTouch and I'll tell you exactly what I do. #1 open Safari #2 type Espn.Go.com into the address bar (NOT SEARCH BAR) #3 click Fantasy as you would on your computer then click Baseball. There you go. Simple as that. It's not the mobile version of ESPN.com but it'll do for checking your fantasy team.

A: ESPN's draft lobby is far better than yahoo's. ESPN also has free live stats. I like yahoo better for the roster interface though.

What is that advertisement they keep showing on ESPN that gets you pumped up to watch or play sports? by Q: It is kind of an inspirational advertisement. It's for some company, forgot what they are advertising for, but they play that awesome instrumental in the background and show clips of sports players achieving their accomplishments or something like that, but it's very inspirational and addicting. I just can't remember what they are advertising. It has been on ESPN for the past few weeks to a month. I guess you can say it gets you pumped to watch or play sports!

Why is Espn the only people who constantly touch black and white issues? by mr dance moves Q: Sports wise. Now I'm watching a show on how African American sports players are treated differently the white ones, plus they are always arguing about it on their shows. On a lot of other sports channels you almost get fired for mentioning anything racially and most employees stay clear of it. Why is Espn different? Ian open your eyes and hit control + those arent white women.

A: why is it only blakc and white? bugs me a little bit that show was all blacks vs whites im neither, and i just felt weird watching it. what about a latino like me? it's all black and white with ESPN, and the media in general

How Dominican Republic is better than the Netherlands ESPN chart? by burns Q: In the World Baseball Classic on ESPN the broadcasters kept showing the chart with how the Dominican Republic is better than the Netherlands. It has the amount of major leagues, amount of game won, payroll, ect. on it. Does anyone have either the topics or the information from that chart?

A: The DR did not have it's best there. Organizations and players' agents did not want them to attend because of insurance risk. The DR is better. Not only that, a 3 game series is not an indicator of who is better. 5 game or 7 game series is what is needed in the WBC.

Why did ESPN stop airing hockey games and will they ever start airing hockey games again? by Landshark93 Q: I live in Florida and in the playoffs i cant watch any games except for the rare 1 or 2 games each round on NBC because i dont get the candaian channels like TSN and VS. So why did ESPN stop airing hockey?

A: Verses/NBC have owned the exclusive rights to NHL broadcasts in the US for the last few years and just recently signed a new 10 year contract with the league to extend those rights. You won't be seeing NHL hockey on ESPN anytime soon.

Have you ever had a commercial on espn during an inning of baseball while a team is batting? by Q: When I watch baseball on espn the station goes to a commercial in the middle of an inning while a team is batting. I have never seen this before and when it comes back you have missed the action. I don't know if this is an espn problem or a problem with my cable network(RCN). Has anybody ever seen this before? It only happens on espn. If I am watching a game on MLB or another network it never happens.

A: never heard of that most of our games are on csn. if its true its an outrage!!!

When I checked back they very guy that i beat is the league champion. He's not even the guy with the best record or the most points in all the league but he ends up being champion?

On ESPN Fantasy Football Custom Leagues, do teams in different division play one another? by Justin G Q: I just did my first ESPN Fantasy Football League under "League Manager". I am ready to invite other owners and just noticed that the league is set up for 12 teams, with 6 each in an east and west division. #1 - Teams in different divisions play one another at a regular schedule, correct? #2 - If I dont get the 12 teams the league is set for, the league will adjust to the amount there?

A: 1Yes you will play against the other division within your league #2 if you don't have the 12 teams you need to adjust the number of teams yourself (manually) under the league settings.

How do you join a Fantasy Soccer League on ESPN without needing to make a new account? by Essey Q: I have an ESPN account and went to fantasy, clicked on soccer but on the page there is no link to play fantasy soccer. I pressed all the links I could find and then I would have to make a new account on a somewhat different website. So, can I make a fantasy soccer league on ESPN without a new account and if I can, please explain how. THX.

A: it is a rap song.

Do you think ESPN will ever quit their East Coast bias, and start broadcasting other Baseball teams? by Capone Q: I like baseball in general. However, ESPN just shoves a bunch Yankees-Redsoxs games down our thoats. I'm a Chi-Sox fan, and you rarely see them mentioned on ESPN even though there playing great ball.

A: Its all about ad revenue,NYand new england have a combined pop. of around 20 million thats big to advertisers

How does espn fantasy football tally up the points after a match with someone in your league? by Zachary M Q: Ok so for week 1 I played this guy in espn fantasy football and he had a little more "total points" than me, but my "bench points" killed his. So does espn fantasy football calculate just the total points or does it add the bench points too? Because if it adds the bench points I would beat the guy I went against.

A: It only counts the points of the starters which I assume you are referring to with "total points." Trying to decide who to start and who to sit is what makes fantasy football so fun and challenging...

How do you think ESPN's televised coverage of the Australian Open has been? by Q: I think it has been absolutely deplorable; dispicable to say best. Too much basketball and football, and too many stupid sports talk shows with "guys just running their mouths" about what? Basketball! Needs to be better televised ESPN coverage of the tennis slams period.

A: Really horrible. A) John McEnroe isn't announcing (he's the best) B) Pam Shriver is one of the most annoying/obnoxious announcers I've ever dealt with. She never shuts up and is very negative. I can barely watch a match when she announces.

How many times has ESPN mentioned the Red Sox-Yankees rivalry being the fiercest in American sports tonight? by Colonel Reb Q: Or most heated, or any other similar phrase. I'm not watching the game myself but I know when they play each other ESPN usually manages to fit about 300 mentions along those lines during their broadcast. Come on Ryan that's not even the biggest college football rivalry, much less the biggest rivalry in all of sports.

A: Well, ESPN has to sell its product, doesn't it?

How much does Major League Baseball pay ESPN to cover irrelevant stories? by pistols_blazin Q: Why does ESPN spend so much time covering irrelevant baseball stories ie. scrub trades when there are much more important stories in sports to cover? It's the freaking offseason for crying out loud College Bowls have just kicked off, we're in the middle of the playoff race in the NFL get with the program ESPN!

A: MLB couldn't pay ESPN enough to affect it's coverage. It's us, the consumer, that pays ESPN by buying products from their advertisers, which is where ESPN makes its living. And through highly-scientific viewer and reader polls, apparently ESPN has decided "irrelevant baseball stories i.e. scrub trades" is what we want. And what we want, we get, because we pay for ESPN's lavish lifestyles and glamour. Think about it: If you ran a business, and going Route A returns you $500 and Route B returns $1,000, where are you going to put most of your efforts?

How many viewers has ESPN had over the years? by David Q: I have to do a project for school and I am planning to make a graph to go with it. I need to know how many viewers that ESPN has had over the years. It would be extremely helpful if you could include what year that that number goes with. Thanks in advance!

A: Billions, you should go to ESPN.com and contact their advertising department, they can help you.

All ESPN alerts on my droid start with //x-espn: and then a number, then the alert. How do I get rid of this? by adamcohen13 Q: I just want my alerts to be normal text message like they used to be without the extra //x-espn: and then the number. Does anyone have any idea on how I could fix this?

A: You likely used to be signed up for ESPN MVP Alerts - if this is the case, you are still signed up for that type which is causing the code to be in the messages you receive. To fix it, go to http://espn.mobi/alerts using your Droid. You should be prompted to convert to text. If you still have problems, call ESPN's Care Center (888.549.3776)- they are there to help!

Who is the ESPN reporter with the big butt I keep hearing about? by wyldchyld_royston Q: I was teaching a class as volunteer work to 7th graders and some of the kids were talking about this female ESPN reporter that has a a big round butt. Im sure there are several of them but I didn't know specifically which one was best know for her assets(?) and didn't deem it prudent to ask the 12 years olds.

A: Did they mean big butt as fat or big butt as in Phat (a great Booty)? Holly Rowe, Hannah Storm, Rachel Nichols, Dana Jacobson and Shelly Smith cover the first! Erin Andrews, Suzy Kolber, Nicole Manske, Bonny Bernstein, Wendy Nix and Jamie Little cover the Phat ones!

How hypocritical is ESPN for calling for JoePa termination and then doing the exact same thing? by AGM120 Q: When the scandal at Penn State broke out they were all quick to pounce on Paterno for failing in his moral duties for not reporting the abuse to the police, now it turns out that they had a recording of the Syracuse victim and Fine's wife talking about the abuse that went on, for eight years. The people at ESPN had just as much moral responsibility as Paterno did to tell the police what was going on.

A: How many people knew who Bernie Fine was before all this happened? Everyone knows who Joe Paterno is, and has known for many years. It's absolutely disgusting what happened in both cases...But in the Penn State case, his was a big name that meant integrity that made what happened even more disgusting. I take it you don't have kids? You'll understand once you have children.

How does ESPN get every sporting event to use for highlights? by Q: When I watch SportsCenter, there are always highlights from channels that I don't receive. As far as I know, there isn't a carrier that has every channel, yet ESPN seems to have access to every sporting event. Is it possible to get this at home?

A: ESPN either buys the highlights or has agreements to trade with other networks. It's possible with a lot of money.

How come some college football teams play on espn and others dont? by coolkid14414 Q: I go to the University of Delaware, and our football is #1 in NCAA, but i dont think i've ever seen them on espn and i know were not as big as rutgers or miami. so what's the difference between those schools and mine? thanks for answering, im really interested to know.

A: Because FBS teams play better football and Delaware is in the FCS while Miami and Rutgers are in the FBS. Comparing the FCS to the FBS is like comparing JV football to Varsity football. Miami has one multiple championships and rutgers is one of the oldest schools in history (plus they are in the FBS). I'm a Delaware fan also but the Number 1 FCS team probably would lose to the worst FBS team. FBS is wayyy better than the FCS. These other people are wrong. Way wrong. Delaware has a pretty large enrollment rate, more than schools like Western Kentucky, Temple, Eastern Michigan, etc. It has to do with the fact that we're not in the FBS yet, but we can be if we win a couple (more) FCS championships.

When does Espn fantasy basketball start? by Jack B Q: I know in the fall sometime but can anyone be more specific. Again im looking for ESPN not yahoo or anything like that. Thanks in advance.

A: usually about a month before the season starts

How come ESPN is showing NBA basketball on a Monday? by DMillUSF Q: There is a doubleheader tonight with Pistons @ Celtics then Lakers @ Warriors. This is pretty unusual. Normally ESPN shows games on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday. Maybe it has to do with the NCAA Tournament.

A: Because they'll be showing the Men's NIT and the Women's NCAA tournament later in the week.

What kind of draft is best for ESPN fantasy under these circumstances? by FSBB Q: We have 4 teams. We are newcomers and don't know what draft is best. We are all going to use the same computer. And do you need to pre-rank players for it. It is an ESPN League? How do you pre-rank players?

A: If you're newcomers, use an automated draft and make trades afterwards.

What is the difference between the ESPN Pick Center and Game Predictor? by pocketsidewalk Q: I signed up for ESPN Insider, and I can't seem to find a good explanation on their website that describes the differences between these two tools.

A: Pick Center is where the NFL "experts" like former players and journalists make their picks. The game predictor is a computer that picks game winners based on stats.

Should ESPN be the only news agency allowed to report on politics and elections? by afk Q: Sports news programs/stations like ESPN have very objective, well thought out arguments about sports that are supported with statistical data. Regular news media tends to be bias one way or the other and rarely support stances with hard stats. They never agree to see the other side of an issue, which sportscasters often do. I never see stat summaries on how candidates have voted. Why is it that we let the media be so biased? Why do we let them just throw ideas out without hard data to support it?

A: You're missing the main factor here, money. News media are influenced, lobbied, bribed to spread an opinion from corporations and/or politicians. It's that simple. Sports media doesn't work like that.

How is Tommy Smith in the ESPN studio after a game that was in a different country? by Sox Fan Q: He just commentated a game, and then 2 minutes later he was in the ESPN studio.

A: The ESPN comentators did not flight to Europe. They're commentating from ESPN studios here in the US while watching the game on a TV screen.

How ridiculous are ESPN and the way they manipulate everything? by Q: Lakers beat the heat, all of a sudden Kobe is mvp, Lakers are a threat to OKC and will come out of the west, clippers are done, the lakers win the pacific division blablalbah, next game lakers lose to the pistons. ESPN analyst ric bucer suggest they trade Kobe bryant which is the most absurd thing ive herd since i can remember. Lakers need trades blahabha. ESPN is the worst source for sports news in my opinion. They are so hollywood and are all for the $.

A: This is difficult to do, but you have to separate ESPN's news shows, like SportsCenter, from their opinion shows, like Pardon the Interruption. On the opinion shows, they try to get as many different opinions as possible. The more opinions, the greater chance for an argument, which makes for higher ratings. The news shows should just be a place to get facts. The problem is that when you watch the news shows, they interject a clip about somebodys opinion on the topic. This makes it easy to confuse fact from opinion. It makes ESPN look like they are creating the news instead of just reporting it. ESPN should focus their news programs on just reporting the facts. It would give them more credibility.

Why is ESPN wasting their money and airing NFL Live during the off season? by Michael Finnigan Q: ESPN has aired NFL Live everyday this offseason and with the same non-important things. They talk about Brett Favre and retiring and who's gonna win the next superbowl. Why do theye do this when they could have things like Baseball Tonight. Do you agree that it's unnessecary to have this one during the offseason?

A: Well they are not wasting money because people are watching. For some reason or another people get off on watching 10 million screen shots of football plays while Trey Wingos replacemnt for the summer is flapping his yap. The problem is with NFL live in the off season is they over anaylize crap in refernce to offseason moves, talk about drama news like Brett Farve coming back , or Adam Pacman Jones's personal life, or Chad Johnson's antics and it basically becomes NFL's verson of "Showbiz tonight".
