Remember Domonique Foxworth? The ESPN guy you first heard about this week who said he roots for Josh Allen to fail because his fans support the American flag and dogs? Yeah, that guy.
Jonathan Coachman, who used to work at ESPN, said that Foxworth admitted to him that his schtick is just to “make people mad.” How uncreative. No wonder it’s not working.
I once hosted First Take with this guy and he said “Coach I don’t care what the bosses tell me I am just going to say things that I know will make people mad”.
I guess he is still doing that. At some point this has to stop. https://t.co/lCGCbQJb7l

Given his reputation and the ratings of the shows Foxworth appears on, a WWE-style character change would be more useful. Maybe he should try humor? Nah, he has already tried that on a show called Highly Questionable with former TV and radio host Bomani Jones, Katie Nolan, and current radio host Sarah Spain. It hasn’t worked. He’s still not funny.
This week, the only thing dumber than Foxworth’s anti-dog, anti-American flag comments are his comments in reaction to his anti-dog, anti-American flag comments. (Though the week isn’t over.) After getting dunked on by Allen’s teammates, Foxworth claimed his comments were taken out of context. Quickly, all those who have access to the internet checked back. Nope, nothing was taken out of context. At least Twitter got to enjoy another crushing of Foxworth.
Here’s a good one:
Dude gets called out and then acts like his words are getting twisted when they’re not 😂 https://t.co/vnYAelqsFM

There’s a lesson here: don’t ignore your bosses and say things just to make people mad. There’s now a precedent for it. It’s not good.
Here’s Clay Travis’ take on the idiotic ESPN analyst:
Auburn coaching search, Chargers-Raiders, NFL-CFB gambling picks, CFB playoff, Tom Rinaldi leaves ESPN for Fox, Idiot ESPN analyst says Josh Allen criticism out of context https://t.co/0cqiCl32Qp
