He's just there for show. He's their "consience". It's no different than a Republican administration having a Democratic speechwriter or cabinet official, or vice versa, working for them. They are called the "house liberal" or "house conservative". It shows the world that they listen to the other side when, in reality, they don't. People like us complain about ESPN all the time. Solomon is there to give us his ear, so to speak. He listens to our complaints and gives his opinion and may very well take it to the powers that be at ESPN and they do whatever they bloody well please.
