Default NFL analyst Michael Irvin no longer with ESPN

There is a God....

NFL analyst Michael Irvin no longer with ESPN
ESPN.com news services


ESPN announced that Michael Irvin, who had been an NFL analyst for ESPN since 2003, is no longer with the network.

ESPN Communications Vice President Josh Krulewitz issued a statement, saying "We thank Michael for his contributions to ESPN and wish him well."

Irvin retired in 2002 after 12 seasons with the Dallas Cowboys and was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame during Super Bowl festivities two weeks ago.

How much will we miss this gentleman who gave us such memories as...

Quote:
Irvin said he tries to bring fans inside the world of the locker room. But he admitted he "crossed the line" when he joked some slave "brother" must have had relations with one of Romo's maternal ancestors. "Certainly, in this case I crossed the line," he said. "I need to learn how to better draw the line between bringing people into the locker room and the boundaries I should not go past as a broadcaster."
Quote:
Former Dallas Cowboys receiver Michael Irvin was charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia after Plano police officers searched his vehicle during a traffic stop.
Irvin, an ESPN analyst and semifinalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, told The Associated Press late Sunday that the drug pipe found in his car belonged to a friend of 17 years who left a Houston rehab center and came to Irvin's house in Carrollton for Thanksgiving. Irvin wouldn't reveal his friend's name.

Wow...it only took 3+ suspicious police confrontations, and 3 more confirmed crack/hooker/hotel room arrests.

I wouldn't hire that POS to flip burgers at a McDonald's, let alone let him speak for my network on national television.

I'm going to miss him. I hated him when he played for the Cowgirls, but I think he was good at ESPN. I liked when him and Ditka would go face to face. He did always talk good about the Steelers too. I wish him the best.

I wonder what the real story behind the move is.

i think was to make room for either marty or parcells (being that parcells gets the job almost immediately, i think this was all it was about- just a better person for the job)

anyways, irvin probably got tiresome to all the others on the set with his constant homer pimping of owens and tha U.
