While Travis’ status remains unknown, viewers took to social media to object to how many times the injury was shown on the CW broadcast. The CW began airing games for the ACC this season, and the showcase of the #4 Seminoles was there biggest contest yet.

There were plenty of fans that actually preferred CW coverage of the game to some other smaller networks and were having fun with tuning into the green brand, where one might usually find super hero shows and teen romance dramas instead.

But there was some frustration over the Travis injury…..





The CW certainly isn’t the first network to receive criticism for showing tough injuries, every network showing professional sports has to make the decision of how to deliver the information, while finding a balance between thorough coverage and consideration for the athletes. And they likely won’t be the last.

And the green brand is ramping up there sports coverage. They’ve negotiated rights the WWE NXT, which is another sport where injuries are a constant reality.
