No loss if smug Salisbury is gone - since Collinsworth, Marino, Peter King & Costas all have other gigs, I guess Carter was the only member of the Inside The NFL crew who needed to find a job once HBO dumped the show

Inside the NFL was much better back in the day with Len Dawson and Nick Buoniconti anyway, IMO. It really jumped the shark with that Wanda Sykes idiot a few years back.

I like Carter. He will call it like he sees it.

Honestly the NBC crew has gotta be the worst. Collinsworth is terrible.....did he bother to tell anybody the Patriots are the greatest team ever??

Bryant Gumble play by play is the cure for insomnia.

SALISBURY WANTED A SEVEN-FIGURE DEAL

How stoopid is Sean Salisbury? He's sufficiently stoopid not to know a good thing when he had it. And he's sufficiently stoopid not to realize that he'll never, ever be as exposed or as wealthy as he was while getting paid by ESPN.

But Salisbury convinced himself that he was underpaid and unappreciated by Bristol, and he says that he asked for a seven-figure salary in order to trigger a "mutual parting."

"I'm a free agent," Salisbury told the Los Angeles Times from his cell phone (snicker) on Tuesday. "I've been liberated. I knew this was coming, but I couldn't be happier."

The problem apparently was that Salisbury didn't get paid as much as more famous former football players.

"I'd grown tired of being punished for not being an NFL superstar," Salisbury said. "Analysts who don't work as hard as me, don't prepare as hard as me, and don't have my resume were making more than me just because of their ability to throw or catch a football." (Or, as the case may be, run with a football and then win Dancing with the Stars.)

"I'd done nothing wrong, and if you hear otherwise, it's not true. I did everything that was asked of me," Salisbury said, possibly in an effort to defuse any rumors that he was fired for calling John Clayton the "Cryptkeeper" on the air last month.

Salisbury claims that he has an offer from FSN, and that he might land in a "non-sports role with CBS." Maybe he'll be hired to fire Katie Couric because she doesn't move her arms when she does the news.
Next on the menu will be the famous Salisbury headbutt celebration that inflicts self harm and injury.

Good Riddance --- hope this tool finds a new toolbox to call home. We cant have tools wandering around all alone now can we.

Another link on the Salisbury story. His replacement might show some promise according to this quote

Quote:
Earlier in the day, ESPN announced Carter had joined the network as a TV and radio analyst. Carter was a plain-spoken TV presence on Inside the NFL. Unlike some league officials, he didn't seem eager to sweep the New England Patriots videotaping scandal under the rug. Carter says there's still major questions that "need to be answered" about the controversy and that many people aren't satisfied with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's handling of the issue. "The Patriots are a modern-day dynasty. If they created an advantage (for themselves), it needs to be looked into."

Who? I seem to vaguely recall a scrub QB that bounced around the NFL and CFL in the late '80s-mid '90s by the name of Salisbury. This the same guy?

Yeah, when the only reason you get the job to begin with is because of your ex-NFL player status, that's usually how it works, douchebag.
