    Maybe Paul will think a little more before publishing next time around...

    Re: ESPN drops Shirley

    Kudos to Paul. He stuck it to the man and he did it justifiably. I don't agree with everything he said, but he made some good points. Probably wasn't the greatest decision career wise, but he's certainly not the only person that feels this way.

    Re: ESPN drops Shirley

    While I disagreed with what he stated in his blog, I can't help thinking isn't free speech is what America is all about?

    Shirley could have came up with a better way of making his point, such as, "Okay, what's going to happen when the help ends in Haiti? Haiti's problems are a lot bigger than the earthquake that leveled it."

    ESPN has just as much right to protect their brand and image as Paul does to be a ****.

    Re: ESPN drops Shirley

    There's a thread in the cave so I won't get into it too much, but he definitely made some interesting points with his column, but it lacked anything resembling tact. Not surprising that ESPN wouldn't want him back though.
