    Hugh Douglas is no longer an ESPN employee.


    “He no longer works for us effective today,” said an ESPN spokesperson.

    The former NFL player and Numbers Never Lie panelist was let go by ESPN today after disturbing details emerged last week from Deadspin and The Big Lead regarding an alleged confrontation between Douglas and ESPN Numbers Never Lie host Michael Smith at the National Association of Black Journalists Convention and Career Fair in Orlando. ESPN issued a statement last Tuesday saying, “We are aware there was a disagreement between Hugh Douglas and Michael Smith. We are looking into the situation.”

    Asked Sunday by SI.com where the situation stood, ESPN spokesperson Rob Tobias said, “We are continuing to look into it and we expect a resolution this week.”

    That resolution has come today.

    Numbers never lie and neither do colors.... as in pink slip.
    You know how hippos are made out to be sweet and silly, like big cows, but are actually extremely dangerous and can kill you with stunning brutality? The Pacers are the NBA's hippos....Matt Moore CBS Sports....

    I would rather ditch Stephen A Smith than Michael Smith.

    If anyone said they'd rather Michael Smith go as opposed to Screamin' A, I'd have to question their sanity.
