You saw this coming after Parker’s weak apology yesterday. You don’t apologize when they fire you, you apologize as a part of the punishment they are handing out to you.
ESPN has suspended Rob Parker for 30 days for his RGIII comments.

To be clear while I believe the comments Parker made about RG3 were grounds for termination considering that he made these comments on 1st Take a show that has made its mark by making ignorant race baiting comments, I can see why he was just suspended.
If you fire Rob Parker, then you have to fire Skip, Stephen A and the producer of the show and they weren’t going to do that. If you think you are going to see a new Rob Parker when he returns, I highly doubt it. This was just a Holiday vacation masked as a suspension.
Don’t expect much change.
