Rift between Sports Guy and ESPN?

Hmm. Maybe that explains the scarcity of his columns on ESPN recently. The timing of an appearance of his own blog is suspicious also. [via Deadspin]

If he chooses to part ways with ESPN, I'm sure he can find another sports outlet to foot his bills for flights out to random sporting events. Though it sounds like what he needs is to move from ESPN to the HBO-equivalent of ESPN, where he can drop the kid gloves on certain topics.
