    What was the last straw for Brent Musburger to get the old heave ho?

    The guy is not the worse on the network and it seems like he is being pushed off the ledge with last night being his last call. Why did it end so abruptly? Mixon comments? Drooling over McCarron's girlfriend?? Gambling references?? What's the scoop??

    I'm thinking a scandal is behind this. Brent and some young intern are probably hot and heavy

    The Mixon story. You can't publicly defend a guy who beats up women. Can't do it.

    He and his kids are working together on that Gambling Network and he's going to be stationed in Vegas. He's wanted to do it for a few years and wants it for his kids as well. He was told he couldn't be on the network and involved with gambling at the same time so it was a perfect time to punch

    True. but in february at the heart of the cbb season quite odd. Sure there was quiet outside pressure from the mixon ordeal. A different level of sensitivity since ray rice. Hell, they're asking goodell questions about zeke elliot's case at the super bowl...

    ESPN leaking money like a sieve. Cleaning house and going with young, no name jerkoffs like that Zuban or whatever. Company has about 5 years left unless they radically change their business model. Same reason Berman is going off the air. Too much $$$ as an on air personality.
