Alex Morgan, Crystal Dunn bemoan delayed NWSL broadcast


Viewers tuning into the Cascadia rivalry between the Portland Thorns and OL Reign Friday night were in for a rude awakening, with CBS Sports airing bull riding instead of the scheduled NWSL matchup.

The broadcast didn’t switch over until 20 minutes into the game, angering fans, players and journalists alike.

San Diego Wave star Alex Morgan tweeted her frustration, adding her name to the growing chorus of upset NWSL fans.

Crystal Dunn was confused and upset with the situation as well, venting directly to the NWSL and CBS Sports Network on Twitter.

Meg Linehan of The Athletic provided updates to her Twitter followers, with the game finally coming on well into the first half.

The Thorns eventually directed their audience to watch the match on the CBS Sports Livestream and app to tune in while bull riding went late on CBS Sports Network.

OL Reign and Portland shared points in a scoreless draw Friday night, with the Reign weathering a relentless Thorns attack to keep the game level.

Portland will have a quick turnaround, taking on the Washington Spirit on Wednesday at Providence Park.
