Earlier this month, ESPN college football analyst Trev Alberts was fired by his network for refusing to show up because of an airtime dispute. In his first public comments since the firing, Alberts says that ESPN has pretty much crushed his ability to be on TV again.

"My opportunities in broadcasting have probably been destroyed by ESPN," said Alberts. "More than likely, I ll be making a lifestyle and professional change, which I suppose isn t always bad. My wife and I have been praying a lot and looking for direction."

Praying? Praying? You have offended the great ESPN; your "God" has no powers here.
