Sean Salisbury Isn't Playing Around Anymore

Wednesday, September 23, 2009

Sean Salisbury went from ESPN analyst to, online mogul, to radio host, in a brief period, and unfortunately controversy followed him each place. Everyone knows the ESPN alleged story about "Lil Sean" and a cell phone camera, while Sean's latest problems (after being let go by a radio station in Dallas) are rumored to be along the same lines, Salisbury is apparently suing everyone on the planet. Via Deadspin....

This is salisbury and I just want u to know ur guys lies and carelessness about CBS and espn stories has not only ruined my reputation but has cost me jobs so prepare urself for a lawsuit so big I will own deadspin u will be asked to give up ur sources so since u guys have cost me more than alot of money my only goal in my career is to ruin u like u have me. Sadly I tried to be honest with you and you have continually written lies. So you and a few major media networks arebeing sued. And put this on ur careless website. I kept a journal for 13 years at espn and a tell all book will be released in months to come. Book title: espn exposed. The truth inside the r rated company. So ur lies about a cell phone incident that is a lie and the reason I left CBS radio that u guys lied about. The time has come and I won't stop until the truth is told and deadspin is exposed.
Well then. Obviously, if the rumored cell phone incidents aren't true, then Salisbury has some leverage. Buuuut....these things have followed them everywhere, and the original ESPN employee is on record as confirming the story. It seems like big talk from someone who's frustrated with his current situation, but I'm definitely going to keep an eye on how it plays out.

(Side note: If you read that whole email exchange on Deadspin, the amount of spelling mistakes is atrocious. It wouldn't surprise me that this is/was a hoax.)

Sean Salisbury Has A Few Things To Get Off His Chest (Deadspin)

Deadspin has been kind of lame since they've (obviously) been facing pressure to be more like other Gawker sites.

They were interesting when they were just "the funny baseball site," but now they seem to be manufacturing controversy where nobody really should even care.

That's not to say Salisbury isn't kind of a tool, but what sports host of note isn't?

Sean, no point will ever be considered when you have to abbreviate are and you.

Big talk?

He sounds like the kid who always threatened to have his older, bigger brother beat you up if you kept picking on him.

Which, to be honest, actually did the trick.

Does he have a little brother in the UFL, too?

The "unfortunately" in the lede is ambiguous. Unfortunate for him, but quite fortunate for us.

His career downslide? Couldn't happen to a nicer piece of garbage.
