You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.
I'm sure many people will not agree, but I just have no ability to drum up sympathy for Torg. His radio station is an ESPN affiliate, something I'm pretty sure he was aware of. All these comments about him having a family, and you don't fire someone in this economy because of blah blah blah... are ridiculous.
I think every single one of us knows better than to publicly shit on our employer, on their product, and our colleagues. I think that there is something getting lost here in that an ESPN affiliate employee was calling an ESPN show unwatchable, let a lone wishing death on ESPN employee. How many of us would still have jobs if we did that within ear shot of our bosses, let alone if we did it on a completely public forum? This is a grown man that works in media, he doesn't even have an ignorance excuse.
And as far as all this Herbie outrage, I know that if I had a work friend, and someone publicly said that he sucked at his job and wished he would die, and I had the forum to do it, I would probably flame the guy that said that about my friend.
Bottom line is that if you are too stupid to know that you shouldn't publicly shit on your employer, their product and wish death on colleagues, you need to be fired. And if Torg gets fired, Torg got Torg fired, not Kirk Herbstreit. To think otherwise is just cause you need one more reason to be mad at Kirk Herbstreit.
In the real world, if you publicly bad mouth your company's product and bad mouth fellow employees who are much more important than you are the way Torg did, you. get. fired. It's really cut and dry for most people and this clown for some reason thought he was more important than he clearly is and thought that common sense rule didn't apply to him.
And I honestly don't have an opinion on this guy Torg as a person, I had never heard of him or his radio show until this happened, but it seems like he's someone that just completely over-estimated himself in value and importance. I mean, if you are a local radio host at an ESPN affiliate and you take to twitter to criticize one of your employer's flagship shows and say that you wish one of the hosts of said show should die, shouldn't you expect to be fired?
Again, I just have no sympathy for that kind of unprovoked stupidity.
I have a 12 pack and two bags of chips and plan on finishing all of them

I HATE ESPN... this reminded me of that.
This twitter seems to be a lot like booze, a little bit is fine, but too much and your getting you azz in a sling. My guess is that twitter is very intoxicating, 'cause it sure does seem like if you have too much, everyone else knows how bad you f*cked before you figure it out.
