Who else is ESPN blackballing?

    Based on Whitlock's recent departure, I'm curious how long the list of print journalists who are being blackballed by ESPN...

    John Feinstein (I know one of the reasons was him ripping ESPN to the Lubbock paper after ESPN turned the Season on the Brink movie into a complete work of fiction...)

    TJ Simers (Fired from ATH after ripping the show to the San Diego paper)

    Jason Whitlock (Fired for ripping Scoop Jackson)

    I know TK lost his radio show for being critical of ESPN as a whole. I know there were certain anchors who TK was prohibited from mentioning on the air.

    Does anyone know of others? I'm not talking about Harold Reynolds, Rob Dibble and Jason Jackson... I'm more interested in print journalists.

    Is Bill Conlin on this list?

    I haven't been contacted by ESPN. I wonder if they're blackballing me.

    David Aldridge was let go as .com NBA writer and TV analyst a few years ago.

    Not true. If he had been, he would have reported it by now and we've heard nothing from him about it.

    Trev Alberts. Oh wait, he wasn't black-balled. He was a no-talent douchebag that decided to stop showing up for work. My bad.

    Maybe its time for columnists to start blackballing ESPN. I'm starting to think we need one less avenue to make ourselves look like clowns.

    Five years ago, ESPN was a destination for journalists ... does anyone else think that's changed?

    Not as long as they continue to fork over loads of cash.
