Well, the jury’s in…
Former Kansas City Star sports columnists Jason Whitlock is kinda, sorta employed. But just by a sports website, Fox Sports. This is not the big time spot the once powerful Kansas City Sports Broker once held.
Jason was THE MAN, on the Kansas City sports scene.
No doubt about that. But nearly a year after he left, silence.
You don’t see Whitlock. You don’t hear Whitlock. You don’t really read Whitlock… well, anywhere.
He’s never on radio except once in a blue moon when Nick Wright – who he doesn’t really like – brings him on for a segment or two.
On Jason’s last 610 Sports interview he told us he liked LA where he lives now. Because nobody bothers him there. Well – hello – nobody knows or cares who he is there. Duh.
Soooo…are you like me? Do you kinda miss the WHITLOCK?
Come on now, its kinda boring without him, isn’t it? Sam Mellinger is a good reporter and a great writer but far too nice a guy to be the new Whitlock. For example the KC Star wrote almost nothing about Marty Schottenhiemer taking the head coaching post for a minor league football team.
Whitlock would have had a field day with that one.
The local sports schmo’s have made KU’s run at their second national title in four years a yawn.
Whitlock would have jumped on that wagon hard!
I think Jason has been punished enough.
NO Gates BBQ in LA. I know I lived there – BBQ sucks in LA.
I say BRING BACK WHITLOCK! BRING BACK THE CONTROVERSY, THE CRAZY WORLD OF JASON….We want you back Whitlock. Come home and get a decent job for Christ’s Sake. All is forgiven.
Are you all with me on this!?!?
