This morning, Feldman went on Dan Patrick’s radio show and unloaded on ESPN. You can listen to the podcast here.
Among the highlights:
"Feldman said when the story hit, he was told he couldn’t Tweet, blog, go to the SEC media day and other restrictions. He said that he was on a “do-not-book list.” Feldman said his contract was up and an executive at ESPN questioned his “credibility.” They at first offered him three years and a raise. Then they changed it to one year and no raise. “If you’re a problem for them, you can’t exist in that world,” Feldman said. He said when your employers aren’t truthful … “it’s a problem.”"
ESPN released a brief statement about Feldman’s departure: “We appreciate Bruce’s 16 years of contributions to ESPN and to college football fans. We wish him good luck in his decision to leave and pursue other interests.”
