I tivo’d Sunday NFL countdown just to see how they dealt with the week of national exposure and heated attention. It was the most emotional 5 minute segment on a football talk show I had ever seen.
I am wondering what people think about their reactions and explanations on air this past Sunday.
I find it very interesting….as they themselves do…that they did not hear Rush say what he said. They were all thinking in a football mentality….and simply did not register the weight of what Rush said when he said it. They all felt tortured by that fact all week, while they received resentment for not challenging Rush the moment he made his comments.
After hearing them speak, I am also fairly certain Rush was fired because they were furious and probably said he goes or they go. Maybe not all of them, but I bet Tom Jackson gave an ultimatum, either Rush goes or he goes. Tom Jackson looked deeply pained and probably feels he let people down for missing Rush’s comment. Jackson seems like a very intense guy anyways.
Anyways, any thoughts? (about the other hosts, not Rush)
