    If the case goes to trial, you can bet that producers of Hollywood courtroom dramas like "Boston Legal" and "Law and Order" will have a representative there taking notes. This is the kind of story that would be fertile ground for a storyline of a legal show.

    Maybe Harold is trying out for a spot on CourtTV?
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    He could cover all of their sports-related court reporting. Plenty of opportunity in that line of work in the Cincinnati, Columbus, Indianapolis triangle.

    All I know is that ESPN better come up with something better than "he gave an intern a hug" to justify its action. D.GOOCH

    Here's the suit.

    Breach of a six-year contract, seeking $5 million in damages.

    (That should help cover the cost of a date at Boston Market.)

    I thought most big company's have stipulation's in their workbook that they can fire you at any given time for no reason.

    Firing is one thing. Breach of a contract is another.

    I like how he snuck in there that they fired him with a hand-delivered letter.

    (If true) Maybe Jim Bowden is advising their H.R. department.

    Reynolds has to fell pretty good about his chances if he filed a lawsuit. If your gulity of being a "hands-on guy" in the work place you have to know that they are going to get a sworn deposition from the lady in question. He has to fell like the lady is not going to say anything that would hurt him. I'd say that he might of rubbed a higher managment person the wrong way and they wanted to get rid of his contract, and they used this as an excuse.

    I'd bet they settle out of court for the majority of the contract. I miss him on Baseball Tonight. He was by far the best at the table.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Based on this read, Reynolds will win this easily.
    The lowest acceptable payroll amount for ownership to show they are not greedy pigs is 15 million more than they are currently paying. No matter what that currently is.

    If everything Reynolds says is true, I agree he's likely to win or get a good settlement.

    But having talked to people who've worked at ESPN, the company is unlikely to have made this move unless there was a lot more to this than an "inappropriate hug."

    We'll see.
