HOF'er Michael Irvin Gone From ESPN?

Is the all time great wide receiver being shoved out the door by ESPN?

Is ESPN on the verge of cutting ties with NFL analyst Michael Irvin? One industry source believes the decision has already been made, and that some at the network view the outspoken Irvin as a ticking time bomb, ready to explode into a public-relations nightmare.-- New York Post

Irvin provides a wealth of insider knowledge to ESPNs NFL coverage. Additionally, he brings the street cred of 3 Super Bowl rings and a HOF election to every analytic point he shares with viewers. His realness is unparalleled in the world of ESPN.

And now, NOW you want to get rid of him? After his election to the HOF?

You didn't fire him after brushes with the law. You didn't fire him after some of his controversial statements that the mainstream media distorted and twisted and took out of context in an effort to destroy his impeccable credibility and renowned honesty and forthrightness.

But now, apparently, Mr. Irvin has committed a crime that ESPN can not overlook. Now, Mr. Irvin has taken his place with the immortals of the game; a member of eternity's All-Pro team. Enshrinement in Canton gives Mr. Irvin a currency that the likes of Tom Jackson and Ron Jawarski can't match. The point-counterpoint banter that is so common on their program would now be tipped unequivocally in Mr. Irvin's direction. Viewers would completely tune out Jaworski and the disturbingly whitish sounding Jackson, and rely on Irvin for all information and opinion. And ESPN can't have the free speaking, deep thinking Negro that is HOF'er Michael Irvin as the unquestioned face of their NFL coverage.

We urge you, ESPN: Rethink any dismissal of Michael Irvin.

It is guaranteed that the blogging world will never forgive you if you cut him loose!

I certainly wouldn't forgive them. My fashion round up would be in shambles. I, sniff, wouldn't have a reason to go on...

This is a blessing in disguise, fellow original man. This clears the way for Irvin's availability for a BET version of the Sports Reporter with Mike Tyson, Rickey Henderson, and Magic Johnson...with Isiah Thomas as the moderator.

I know what ESPN needs...more vanilla faced failed professionals acting like they know the game they sucked so horribly at.

Another thing NOIS, how does ESPN keep Salisbury around after he took pictures of his cock on his camera phone and showed them around to poor helpless women while Harold Reynolds gets shitcanned for dinner at a Boston Market? It just doesnt add up.

Sir, the abject horror of fall Sundays without Michael Irvin clouded our vision. Allah gave you beans, and you made beanpies. Excellent suggestion.

Sir, the answer to this is quite simple. Sexual harrassment is perception. And obviously, Lil Salisbury didn't intimidate the women. The perception wasn't a threat, the perception obviously was that it was "cute".

Now, if Irvin or Reynolds unleashed their Mandingo warrior side on unsuspecting women? Well, obviously intimidation would have followed.

"i hear irvin can perform self-oral copulation."

Sir, you "hear" he can perform oral acts upon himself? Or do you mean you fantasize about him doing so?


"question, does the honorable elijah mohammed human consider this a homosexual act? "

Sir, yes, the Honorable Elijah Mohammed does consider YOU fantasizing about Michael Irvin a homosexual act.
