ESPN appears to have a lot in common with Carnival cruise ships these days--they are out of control and just a little bit smelly. From employees bashing the networks product to quips and jokes it seems as if anarchy is the law of the land in Bristol. The only thing the network does seem to control is the exposure that inflammatory comments from the likes of Skip Bayless and Rob Parker types gets.
The latest tidbit--and hence my prediction that he'll be suspended soon--came courtesy of Bill Walton during coverage of the Oregon Washington game Thursday night starting with this quip about the network's latest hire, Ray Lewis:
Call it a hunch, but I doubt the network is going to be real happy that Bill is making light of Ray's obstruction of justice/murder scandal from early in his career. It's not exactly a bright point in the star linebacker's life, and not something ESPN will want people thinking about when football season gets started and Lewis is on camera a lot.
