Irvin not to be Renewed by ESPN

IRVIN OUT AT ESPN?

Flamboyant receiver turned flamboyant broadcaster Michael Irvin finally got into the Hall of Fame.

And, in the same year, he might finally be out in Bristol.

As Pat Reichart of the New York Post writes: "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."

(Ready to explode? Ready to explode?)

Reichart also says that ESPN would not confirm or deny the report (uh-oh, Mike), and that the network said that it "currently [is] in the process of discussing studio assignments for next season."

Per Reichart, there is speculation that Bill Parcells will return to ESPN for the 2007 season. When word broke that Parcells was in talks to become the next coach of the Cowboys, ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli said (as we wrote way back on January 18, 2003) that Parcells should be fired on the spot for not spoon-feeding the scoop to his then-current employer.

So if the Tuna comes back, we doubt that he and Len will be getting together to discuss the latest developments in, you know, man bras

He has made some really bad decisions with his words and really doesn't contribute very much IMO

I can't stand him, especially always noticing that he's constantly touching his Cohost's arms all the time. Very annoying.

must stem from his playing days when he pushed off on defensive backs all the time and hardly got called for offensive pass interference.

This was a long time coming. He was loud, brash, and contributed nothing.

Definitely agree. Irvin's penchant for trying to win arguments by being louder than the other person is finally at an end.
;-D


As a send-off, they should let Ditka kick him once in the rear on his last day with ESPN.

Yeah, his attire was the one good thing about him... It was painful to watch anything he was on.
