Did you follow the thread and see the internal memo put out? They basically put his salary in the memo and called him out for not taking a pay cut. They also took a shot at his lack of writing and content not bringing the clicks. No reference to his time on the swamp.

He will be up and running as a podcaster, freelancer, athletic writer or such in no time.

So Grant Wahl's new podcast is just a new home for his previous one on SI. But he was jocking the Athletic pretty heavily today. Have to believe he will be on there soon.

He's teamed with the Total Soccer Show guys (who have their own exceptional pod). I understand that Daryl and Taylor are producing the Wahl pod. The TSS guys just joined their podcast with the Athletic a few months back. GW may end up on the Athletic at some point, but I wouldn't be surprised if he goes somewhere else, or stays independent. You have to think at a certain point that the Athletic has enough money to pay only so many "large" names.

Fuck you UEFA and putting games on CBS All Access. It will be on some of the linear networks (CBS and CBS Sport). TV network people are all assholes. There is not enough contents for all of your channels filled with reruns, ads, and bullshit, but what we need is another $6/month service so I can watch the one or two f'ing games I care about.
