I knew they had a society with events and t-shirts and such...
http://www.worldrps.com/
I thought it was kind of funny and no real harm,
BUT ON ESPN!!!
Can you imagine Stewart Scott commenting:
"BOO-YA! Laying down the scissors and taking out the fan favorite from Canada, Three Hand Jim, Aye!"

gotta love the guy who tells you you spelled something WRONG - and he incorrectly corrects you... LOL

If you want R/C Racing on T.V. - PUT IT THERE - MAKE IT INTERESTING - and GET ENOUGH $$$ worth of ADVERTISERS to Pay for IT - it's that simple...

Really, is this broadcast by ESPN? Can't believe this.....although if it is true I have to start a RPS hooligan club! No really, ESPN is part of the Disney clan but I think Good Ol Walt is turning around in his grave when he hear this! Maybe a weekly program of R/C sports (boating,cars and planes) would be a better choice and the mouse would be a lot more happier than this crap for spoiled people

Actually I think that it was on ESPN2 in my parts, but you get the idea.

Just saw it on ESPN and have to say "only in America"
A waist of resources is what i think.
I mean how skilled do you have to be to play the game !!!

Sad to see ........
