What I saw was she was not gone but moving to take over The Undefeated.  Still probably a demotion.

yeah definitely best for everyone involved to have fewer black women in roles in a field dominated by white men

Compared to the sportscenter 6PM broadcast in recent history, no. It's worth noting that ratings for a 6:00 highlight show are such that FS1 just out right got rid of theirs.

Did they just put it up, because it's been out there for 4 hours and they haven't touched the story on TV or on their website.

I mean I think the real story is the piece of crap beating his wife and not how quickly ESPN got a story up.

Yes, but a lot of ppl were beating them up today about it. I did bump the urban meyer link on the football board, so I am mostly concerned of what happens to these monsters.

They fired the guy who's been blowing these stories up in the last year. They've been really slow to report it and many think it's because they're embarrassed to have to use Brett as the source. Just petty crap, mainly.

Doesn't seem credible to me, but I don't follow sports dork drama so I could be missing something.

based on a quick twitter scan, the sports dorks honestly seem more worried about ESPN than the pregnant wife beating

I've never wondered whether I could trust ESPN to cover sports news honestly.

Like, do you think maybe you didn't report anything interesting in the five years at ESPN?
