Yesterday, ESPN's Around The Horn TV Show took up the "awkward" subject of the problems of one of its own, ESPN Personality Jay Mariotti.
As sports fans know, Jay Mariotti was arrested on suspicion of domestic assault against a woman said to be his girlfriend.
Jay Mariotti was known for flaming athletes accused of domestic assault, so its weird still that he's accused of doing the same thing.
And while Jay's being raked over the coals for all of that in the media, and he should be, it just seems totally classless for his own show to talk about it. Here's the video:
That should be the one place where they at least take a wait-and-see out of respect for Jay. It's like this: Jay cracks on athletes for domestic abuse problems, Jay gets cracked on for his domestic abuse problems, Jay's own show cracks on him about same problems. So what"s next?
Maybe they don't have respect for Jay?
The logical next step is for someone else at ESPN's Around The Horn to get into the same trouble so they and we can talk about that person.
Does it ever end?
