Sure, that’s their story now.

SPORTSbyBROOKS is reporting that ESPN never really liked that Craig James feller:

Multiple sources have indicated to SbB in recent days that ESPN was unlikely to retain James as an employee of the company after his contract expired in April.

How convenient.

Now there’s a part of me that doesn’t doubt the WWL might be trying to spin James’ departure in a favorable way.  No organization can be that blind to James’ unpopularity.  But even if he had a contract, it’s not like the network had to keep putting him on the air if it was really that dissatisfied with him.

The proof will be in the pudding if James’ Senate campaign goes nowhere and he seeks to return to the broadcast booth.  We’ll see how much ESPN really wanted a separation then.

    Or until James wants to take a break from politics to take care of his health and spend more time with his family by heading to the booth.

    James will be ok, he does not play Alabama.

    It could be worse: he could get a job with CBS after his Senate run tanks.

      Hopefully he’ll go to Fox. Then no one will have to watch him.

        They have their allotment of a-holes already. He could be a guest on Rome’s time where they could repair to a dark closet and practice self-emolation.

    My hatred for that ass hat knows no bounds.

    Maybe we’ll see him and Thom Brenemanamanaman calling future Sugar Bowls!

    Wash St is my new “Adopt-a-Team” candidate just to see Leach overcome that supercilious egotistical bastard. Espn didn’t have to contract him until April if he is truly on their shit list. No, I’m afraid that they will still be twained with his ass when the lawsuit hits a jury. You can only sling so much slime off your fingers once you shake hands with and get in bed with a no-character dumbass like James.

    Like when Hitler’s Germany was overthrown, everyone was just following orders.
