    Because it's just that... you can go to ESPN website copy the html/css and put it in any website.

    Right. Just looked at the page source, and sure enough - they just ripped all the relevant content for the "header" banner on ESPN, and put it on their local site. It is all just calling specific references with the html, so it's all local content. There is no information in the page source to suggest there is any content on the page that isn't locally hosted, i.e. no iframes and no re-directs called on-page.

    Why did you(OP) think it was a redirect? This could also have easily been done using an iframe with cakeslice and just cutting out the relevant portion of the ESPN homepage, but that was not the technique employed here - while it would have been my preferred approach to minimize bandwidth issues - of course ESPN would also know I was calling their header all the time in an iframe, so these are both viable approaches and implementation strategy just depends on personal preference or goals.
