It’s not much longer than what I originally posted a few minutes ago, but this is the full statement from ESPN regarding Steve Phillips’ termination tonight.
Phillips Statement: Steve Phillips is no longer working for ESPN. His ability to be an effective representative for ESPN has been significantly and irreparably damaged, and it became evident it was time to part ways.
ESPN is using the first rule of public relations in regards to bad news, try to bury it. On a day of NFL games and Game 6 of the American League Championship Series, the news broke around 8:30 p.m. ET on Sunday.
I’m sure we’ll hear more on Monday.
