    Any thoughts on this?? Seems a little bit of an overrreaction to punish Post sportswriters who had no role in the decision to run the photos.

    Sorry. Cut off the last letter. This should work ...

    Kind of ironic that a business whose bread and butter hinges on the First Amendment decides to muzzle others from using the same.

    Then again, they've been acting like a fascist country for the last few days (at least) with the ban on Roethlisberger coverage.

    They should be grateful more than anything .... I don't know, the first I heard about the whole Andrews thing was from ESPN. So it seems a little hypocritical to attempt to punish another outlet for this.

    Seems the Post gets the better deal out of appearing on ESPN than ESPN gets using them. So yeah, I'm okay with what ESPN is doing. The first amendment doesn't say anything about guaranteeing the right to appear on Around The Horn.

    I think it is nice that they stick up for their employees the way they do.

    It's overkill.

    Nice that ESPN finds some entity whose standards it can hold its nose at.
