Jason Whitlock gone from ESPN.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. It's a happy day for me, I hated the pile of garbage, so no more "Big Sexy" on my PTI. I couldn't find this through a search, and apparently I'm about a week late on this one.

In this interview http://thebiglead.com/?p=1038 with thebiglead.com he calls Scoop Jackson of ESPN Page 2 "someone doing a bad Nat X impersonation."

He also called Mike Lupica "an insecure, mean-spirited busybody" on the Sports Reporters last week.

I read the interview and apparently he was pissed with ESPN because he wasn't "high enough on Page 2's batting order." I'm surprised because he's SOOOOOOO boring on PTI that I couldn't believe he thought of himself as anything other than generic summer "filler" for the real writers and hosts.

It just all sounds like a ploy on his part to drum up some interest and make a national name for himself, but I don't think writing for AOL is going to help that much.

Anyways, all good news here, I can now watch PTI safely knowing it will be Whitlock free .

Everything he said is true.

BTW this was discussed in the Pardon the Interruption thread.

I will miss his "NFL Truths" on Page 2. He was telling the truth about that crappy overrated QB in GB that shall remain nameless.

I especially like the part where he looks up to William C. Racist ... er, I mean Rhoden.

Because, regardless of how I personally feel about another brotha, I understand that the first step in creating a Civil Rights Movement is being civil.
Wow. Whether or not Scoop was being truthfull he REALLY made Whitlock look like a clammering fool with that article. Thats taking the high road better than I think I've ever read. That and it's the most educated sounding article Scoop probably has or will ever write.

Oh and I agree with Das about William C. Racist....but thats another thread...

Wow a Scoop article that isn't an utter joke. I suppose It was bound to happen eventually. Even a blind squirrel finds a acorn every now and then.

But I still agree with Whitlock's assertion that he is in fact a buffoon.
