ESPN Stealing NFL Radio's Scoops?

I listen to NFL Radio every damn day and I have to miss this today! I would have loved to hear Adam Schien yell when he actually has something to yell about.
A funny thing happened on Sirius
NFL Radio on Thursday. Shortly after 4:00 p.m. EDT, Adam Schein and Jim
Miller were interviewing Eagles G.M. Tom Heckert. Not long into the
session, Heckert announced that the team has agreed to terms receiver Kevin
Thirty minutes later, the crawl on
ESPN attributed the scoop to Len Pasquarelli.
Schein went bonkos. And
justifiably so. The G.M. of the team had announced the move live on
the air. There was nothing to "learn" or to "report" after Heckert
declared to the word that the move had been made.
It's the second time in less than
a week that ESPN has pulled such a maneuver. Last Friday, Adam Caplan
advised Sirius producer Nick Pavlatos that Browns running back Reuben Droughns
had been traded to the Giants. No one else was reporting it at the time,
so Pavlatos (as we hear it) called Droughns, and broke the news to the player
that he had been dealt.
