ESPN should end their relationship with Adam Shafter. We had enough. We don’t want to see him again.

I’ll run here for the day but Adam Shafter will have to go.
If a 24 year old loses his life and chooses to break the news by including in his job “struggling to catch up”, you are a loser. Duration. No excuses for that.
Unprofessional. Sensitive. Garbage.
