    Perhaps this has already been posted. Proof that there is a higher power... perhaps it's the Mouse, but I'll throw a prayer towards anything that got this lug nut off ESPN.

    I have nothing to base this on other than Dakich’s “personality” but I’m gonna take a wild guess that he refuses to get vaxed and ESPN requires it so he’s gone. Whatever the reason, buh and bye spells buh-bye.

    He's shuffled off to the Clay Travis school of sports broadcasting. Good riddance.

    I'm not a big fan of Greenberg, Cory Alexander, and a few others. But Dakich takes it to another level because he just seems like a truly miserable human being. Good riddance.

    Who cares what the reason is; this is cause for celebration!

    Good riddance. A know-it-all who talked incessantly. My mute button will get a rest.

    He can peddle his wares to the dozens of people who watch Outkick Network. Have fun with that, Dan.
    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    I didn't realize who Outkick is and what is roots are. Given that, and the information contained in the article I'm linking, I feel even more strongly in my hunch described in my earlier post on this thread as to what is driving Dakich's move: Covid testing and Covid messaging. He's gonna fit right in with this collection of cranks and quacks.

    Well it’s not like ESPN can’t give Mr Elmore a call.
    While Jakitch is a drag, it can always get worse.

    I would take Elmore or almost anyone else over Jockitch. I don’t need all of his pre-teen angst. And knowing where he is going now makes me think even less of him.

    He took all of the bad from Knight and none of the good.

    Wirtz = exhibit A for "aggressively bad" refereeing
