I think ESPN should have stayed with him.

Philly media was the fire starter.

What exactly did they say?...

I find it weak that after the fact, and after TJ and irvin were not immediately offended, that they had to have a segment just to 'redeem themselves' in the eyes of their fellow brotha peeps.

Anyways.. Here's to hoping O. Smith comes through with a nasty game!

I think it was Chris Berman who addressed it.

Just caught the tail end of it though.

Think it was one of the first things they talked about on the show.

Actually, first they did a replay of the whole story with video commentary, then each cast member got a few minutes to talk about it.

Took about 20 minutes.

I think what they did was excellent... the media has been all over these guys for not responding to Rush in a more aggressive way last week... I think its commendable that they waited until their show to respond, and that they made it clear that they were forced by the network to accept Rush as a colleague and that in the end he wasn't a good fit...
