  1. You have a wife, 3 kids, a car and house payment.

    How many fingernails can you bite off wondering if the dumbass network who thinks it’s a good idea to irritate subscribers, is going to leave you without a paycheck?

    Shoulda bailed before you were even considered for the chopping block.

  2. ESPN’s Scott van Pelt to former ESPN viewers: “You’re so dumb that I can’t even pray for you because you’re beyond hope.”
    Who’s the dumbass now, Scotty boy?
    Screw you.
    Buh-bye.

  3. Not one of them will ever figure out why they lost their jobs. They’re so sure they’re right they’ll take their losing ways with them to the next gig. Sure hope McDonalds doesn’t hire any of them.

  4. They went to work for a network that values PC above their core business, SPORTS, and they expect me to care? Fuck ’em and fuck ESPN ABC DISNEY
