Bruce Feldman Leaves ESPN for CBS Sports, Then Goes on the Dan Patrick Show and Unloads on ESPN
By Jason McIntyre
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.”
