You Duke haters are going to love this one. Duke Blue Devil fans are pissed at ESPN for what they are calling a "cynical exploitation". I have no idea if this is a new thing, or an existing feud, but here's what one of the leading Duke Basketball Websites wants the Crazies to do.....
Well, here it is: Duke fans, and specifically the Crazies, have a chance to hold ESPN accountable. It would be great to deny them that money shot of Crazies in full splendor. It would be classic if, rather than that, whenever the camera panned over them, the Crazies just crossed their arms en masse and stared at the camera until it went away. It would be a mild but effective protest. It probably wouldn’t be as hard to explain as signs and cheers against the Bullies from Bristol, but hey - you guys are creative. We’re sure if you want to let ESPN know you object to their recent maltreatment of one of their major moneymakers, you can come up with something.I honestly have no idea where this came from, and it seems a bit whiny and we're not getting enough attention, but if this goes down tonight I'm going to be laughing my ass off.

Unreal: Cameron Crazies Mad at ESPN!! (The Big Lead)
Update: As an anonymous commenter pointed out this could be in response to ESPN's coverage of the Duke Lacrosse case. If that's the case I think it's a little late for that, but whatever makes you feel better.
