We all know how easy it is to shut down the Ducks offense. So why are they revered by the ESPN network
A few years ago the Oregon Ducks, a/k/a the Phil Knight Flock, purchased the rights to use the Walt Disney Corporation Duck (WDC) image.
ESPN, being owned by the WDC, is the most profitable WDC owned entity. Through the constant promotion of the petite Oregon Ducks, ESPN rakes in the NIKE advertising dollar while the Duck image of the WDC is constantly pushed upon the common sports fan. Two bangs for the price of one!
With that being said, I see a lot of people on this board have fallen for the Duck promotion. I remember a beat down a couple of years ago in Texas and I ask myself, "What have they done since to garner such respect"?
