Rosenhaus In Bed With ESPN?
If you watched any portion of the NFL Draft, you undoubtedly caught the new commercial on ESPN featuring Drew Rosenhaus.
Tom Jones of the St. Pete Times likes the commercial, but thinks that there is a blatant conflict of interest in having Rosenhaus on a commercial that was paid for by ESPN and really endorses the ESPN brand.
ESPN does stories on Rosenhaus. It does stories about his clients. Why should the viewer trust any story it sees when one of Rosenhaus’ clients is negotiating a new deal, or worse, gets into legal trouble?
This isn’t to say ESPN will slant stories one way or the other, but just the appearance of a conflict of interest puts doubt in the viewers’ minds, and why would ESPN risk its credibility?
