    "unless he plan to handle weekend sports at the UPN affiliate in Tallahassee, his broadcasting career is officially over."

    While that is kind of funny, I don't think it's true. He'll catch on somewhere. The problem is there are too many somewheres.

    ESPN did hire Cris Carter.

    I know I'm probably in the minority here, but I'm going to miss the guy. He was always completely pro-Pats and whenever a scandal arrived, he was there to defend us.

    Hell, he was the most pro-Patriot guy on the entire network. Thank you for your support Sals and I wish him luck in the future.

    Be it sending pictures of his penis to his coworkers or defending BB.

    Good point.

    Who takes over for him as the new ESPN most pro-Patriot guy?

    I'd say Jaworski.

    Salisbury was always full of it. I wonder if it had to do with him calling John Clayton the "cryptkeeper" or just bad analysis in general.

    EDIT: Maybe I should read the article before I comment...but hey, I called it.

    Which is a great joke...if you are in college with your fraternity brothers. To say that on the air to another adult is beyond me.

    I think it was a combination of about 12 things.

    I'd go with Keyshawn.

    But hell he might be back in gear next year.

    Salisbury was the most entertaining analyst on any of those shows, and truly hilarious with his verbal ass-whippings of Clayton (who should have been fired long ago).

    Exactly. Even if it's true (I've heard so many jokes about Clayton and progeria (sp?)), you don't say it on air to his face. If you need to insult the guy instead of logically debate him, you don't deserve to be an analyst on ESPN.

    I'm not a fan of Clayton, but Salisbury should have shown him some respect on the air. Clayton's also 100x more accurate of an analyst than Salisbury. I don't know how he was entertaining, all he'd do is try to talk over other people to make his wrong point. He offered almost zero insight or news. ESPN did the right thing.

    Your post implies that logical debate happens on ESPN.

    wow the hits just keep on coming....

    First Asante dropping that pick...
    Then losing the Superbowl....
    Then Bruschi Retirement talk...
    Then Zach Thomas signs with Dallas...
    Then the Asante wants 10 mil talk....
    Then the Moss Rumor....

    And now Sean Salisbury won't be on ESPN anymore.

    My God the hits just keep on coming. I can't take this anymore.

    I don't think Salisbury will have any trouble finding work. The word "Battlebots" appears on his resume.

    Clayton was (and is) just as smug and self-righteous regarding his opinions as Salisbury. Clayton and Salisbury are both wrong more often than not, at least Salisbury was funny when he was smug and wrong, while Clayton is just a douche.

    You're right, I'm sorry. That was an inaccurate implication.

    I agree. I can't stand that little sh1t clayton. They would be critiquing a QB and Clayton would use that as an opportunity to take digs at Salisbury's performance during his playing days. What a little ass.

    Salisbury was good, I enjoyed him more than any of the other hacks on ESPN

    Clayton at least has reports and "people" that he talks to on teams. Granted, I don't have ESPN anymore, but I don't remember Salisbury saying anything that 1) I didn't know already or 2) I thought came from anyone smarter than a 6th grader. Maybe I've missed something in the past few months, but I after the "cryptkeeper" incident, I didn't exactly think of him in a better light.

    Clayton, imo, is much more bearable than Salisbury. At least Clayton was trying to talk football instead of going ad hominem. A little respect for colleagues would be nice.
