The image is too small. Try hosting the photo on an image sharing site and post the link to it or do IMG tags in your reply.

"Xubuntu" isn't supported by Chrome but "Ubuntu" is.

I have no other thoughts about this but that..

Xubuntu uses Ubuntu's core OS with XFCE instead of Unity. Things that work for Ubuntu should also work for Xubuntu.

How are you installing Google Chrome? Through the software center or did you download the deb file from Google?

How did you install flash for Firefox? I am assuming you added the packages for Ubuntu Restricted Extras?

Is it just ESPN or other websites with video players?

Side note: weird, I faced a lot of flash issues on 10.04 Ubuntu amd64, but worked perfectly on 32bit.
