Darren Rovell Stunned That Someone Didn’t Answer His Phone Call
We're sure this isn't the first time Darren Rovell has called a woman and been sent directly to voicemail, and it definitely will not be the last. The ESPN sports finance analyst and luxury box bon vivant tried to make a point about women's professional soccer by tweeting out how unresponsive one particular (unspecified) club's public relations department is. Or something -- we're not sure what the point of this tweet was, other than "Oh my god do you know who I am? I'm sportsy Donald Trump goddammit you pick up the phone when I call!!!!".
NO ONE EXCEPT DARREN ROVELL EXPECTS A WOMEN'S PROFESSIONAL SOCCER TEAM TO BE STAFFED LIKE A FORTUNE 500 COMPANY WITH A FULL CREW WORKING THE PHONES 24/7 IN THE MIDDLE OF SUMMER.
Just called the main # to a National Women's Soccer League team. Went to voicemail. Kid you not.

Here are some the best responses to Rovell's utterly useless, self-aggrandizing observation...
@darrenrovell Seriously, what's the news? Sources frequently return calls after journalists leave voice mails.

@darrenrovell these teams operate on less than a shoestring. Maybe your employer can buy broadcast rights so they can hire a 2nd employee
