On Friday night, United States Women’s National Team star Alex Morgan was among many people trying to watch an NWSL rivalry game on CBS Sports.
However, fans didn’t catch the game when they tuned in to CBS Sports. Instead, they held a bull riding contest.
The broadcast of the Portland Thorns and OL Reign match was delayed due to the end of a bullfighting competition, angering Morgan and the rest of the football world.
“Wait, I’m trying to watch a @NWSL rivalry, but instead Bull-riding is behind CBS sports. I just want to watch football, that’s so hard to ask!!!” she tweeted.
Fans were with Morgan.
“Once again I ask the @NWSL to step away from @CBSSportsNet and find a broadcast network that actually cares about the league because CBS has once again shown that women’s football/soccer is not not a priority for them,” one fan tweeted.
“Players have been calling officiating standards / player safety and now they’re calling broadcast issues. What year is this league in? 10? And yet, not much seems to have been resolved and the problems continue to grow. Need a serious session to go over all of this,” another fan added.
“Riding a bull, eating hotdogs, anything is better than showing women’s sports apparently,” another fan wrote on Twitter.
Let’s hope this doesn’t happen again.
