Today Dan Patrick said Keith Olbermann would be better suited to the MLB Network, not ESPN, where it is rumored that Olbermann is trying to get his job back there.
Patrick said he wanted to make it clear he himself would NEVER attempt to return to "The Mothership," as he calls ESPN with a certain ironic disdain.
Patrick made it clear that most of ESPN employees are fine people but a few producers "behind the scenes believed they were bigger than the talent and you can't have that."
"I outgrew the Mothership and they outgrew me so we're both better off," he said, in my attempt to capture Patrick's words as good as possible.
Regarding Olbermann, Patrick said he was "too polarizing" for ESPN and while he'd provide them "good buzz" the buzz would be short-lived.
For the record, I'm a huge Dan Patrick fan, have been for 25 years, so you know whose side I take.
