Default ESPN to Rival SI Swimsuit Issue?

The article below suggests that they will produce an ESPN the Magazine-type with NUDE professional athletes inside.

ONE CATCH: The athletes will be nude, but their private areas will be covered in creative ways by bats, gloves, helmets, etc.

It suggests that it will rival Sports Illustrated's swimsuit issue. Interesting to say the least. My only fear is that it's not only female athletes in the mag, but no proof of anything.

Athletes may pose nude for ESPN mag

Oh come on, you know you're all dying to see a high resolution shot of the slightly overweight C.C. Sabathia nude. Him proudly standing in all his glory holding a juicy cheeseburger covering his naughty bits from view of the camera. They'll sell out overnight!

So you are saying that you will buy 14 copies and get them graded?

ESPN's collective head is much better than what they deliver. Just about everything at ESPN is subpar today including their Magazine, Website which sucks, Commentators on live events, I hate to say it Chris Berman whose time past 10 years ago, Mel Kiper, ESPN Classic, their catering to Women's Sports who nobody watches, yadda yadda yadda.
