So the whole Steve Phillips fiasco has reached its inevitable conclusion: ESPN canned his ass. They waited until Sunday night to make the announcement, and then loaded his career into a Mayflower truck and drove nonstop to Indianapolis.
“Steve Phillips is no longer working for ESPN,” network spokesman Josh Krulewitz said in a statement. “His ability to be an effective representative for ESPN has been significantly and irreparably damaged, and it became evident it was time to part ways.” –ESPN, via Deadspin.
I guess I understand–how much credibility does a guy have after he knocked boots with this? But if that’s the case, why does former Detroit Lions GM Matt Millen still have a job at the network? That guy dicked an entire city. For YEARS. And what does he get for his trouble? He gets to go on TV and tell everyone how much he knows about football. My ass. Oh, but he’s great on TV. No, the same rule applies. That asshole may as well have “0-16″ tattooed onto his forehead, because that’s the only thought I can process whenever I see that chump on TV.
