This ESPN drama is intense. It’s costing folks jobs, most likely getting some folks paid, getting different folks labeled as racists, and making lots of people chuckle.
The story goes past simply Maria Taylor and Rachel Nichols, with the likes of Jalen Rose’s daughter and Clay Travis now concerned. Wait, Clay Travis?
Jemele Hill continues to inject herself into the story by claiming that ESPN likes black faces however not black voices. And due to horrible racism on the community, Hill says the “idiot” Clay Travis ruined her present earlier than it obtained canceled.
“Thinking about my situation, they (ESPN) were reacting to a moment then,” Hill mentioned on the Dan Le Batard Show. “That second mentioned folks didn’t wish to hear any political discuss, any racial discuss, any social justice discuss, not that that was one thing Mike and I had been doing day-after-day on SportsCenter, we weren’t.
“They let a false narrative persist about our show that people ran away with,” Hill goes on. “They let the idiots in the room control the conversation, people like Clay Travis. They allowed those people to direct their course of action. They panicked, and suddenly, they were very intentional about the things that they were doing in our show. They wanted black faces. They didn’t necessarily want black voices.”
Here’s my takeaway: if Clay Travis can dictate choices on reveals, he’s doing a poor job of it. Really poor.
I imply, why did it take him till the tip of Game of Thrones to complain in regards to the ultimate season? And if he actually had the facility to make these adjustments, ought to indignant GoT followers intention extra blame at him? I might. And I’ll.
Hey, Clay, are you actually going to take a seat again and let NBA Countdown proceed down this path?

I’m additionally curious in regards to the “people like Clay Travis” half. Who else does that embrace? In truth, at this price, who may very well be thrown into this burning hearth subsequent?
Tom Hanks? He’s at all times within the information.
Don Jr.? CNN instructed me he’s the satan.
OutKick’s Joe Kinsey? If so, at the least hold the imply tweets down whereas the person mows the garden.
Anyway, please, don’t name Clay Travis an fool publicly. His DMs are open for a motive.
