Whitlock done all around ESPN

    Whitlock himself worked in a fat joke in the column.

    Never give an interview to a blog. We may think nobody reads it, but then somebody posts a link to it here and someone actually reads the thing.

    Good for you, Jason. Somehow I think you'll do just fine without ESPN.

    Over. I'd say around midnight to 1 a.m. EST.

    You had to go and mention that, huh Mr. Esquire?
    Powerful column. We feel terrible about Whitlock's outcome, but talented writers will always have a place at newspapers, magazines, or websites. Clearly, from the response on here, he's one of the best in the country.

    Nice job, bubs... Bitch of it is, lil Loopy is sitting back going "see! See! I got rid of him. Don't fuck with me, you're next," like Peter Lorre in some bad movie from the 1930s

    Jason will prosper, as he should. AOL won't be sorry he's arriving carrying a newsworthy little controversy along with his laptop. Jason enjoys fucking with the world and has the honesty to expect the world's gonna fuck with him in return on occasion.

    ESPN is impervious to looking bad. There is no other way to explain DJ Stewy and Playmakers.

    Loved the column....a media career without ESPN, what a concept...

    Great job, Jason.

    The same thing happened with T.J. Simers and his departure from the World Wide Misleader.

    Hmmm....that's right. In the future, we could have columnists trying to reach ESPN-level stardom, only to orchestrate a parting to make their cred bones.

    And that is much appreciated. In the race to bash Bonds like everyone pretty much does, you stood your ground. Good work.

    Well done, Jason. And more kudos for having enough fortitude to expose Scoop for the bad, bad joke that he really is. And while I don't care for Bonds myself, is piling on necessary?

    The outcome doesn't surprise. With ESPN under the Disney umbrella, it's no secret that Disney rules have extended to the "World Wide Leader."
