Silly us, we turned on ESPN for baseball and got a David Mamet play instead.

I've also read that an Outback Steakhouse figured prominently in the ordeal.

Conspiracy theorists are claiming that this all ties back to HR getting into a vehement argument with the show's producers about their focus on A-Rod over the past week and the harrassment thing is the excuse for his firing.

I'm sure it was somehow A-Rod's fault.

Using sexual harassment as a pretense to firing someone over a personality difference is a good way to get your company a really nasty wrongful termination suit.

Since ESPN presumably has cause and documentation to fire Reynolds for sexual harrassment, does it follow that they are able to void the remainder of his contract with the network?

If he were fired for a personality conflict, would the network still have sufficient cause to void the remainder of his contract?

If these assumptions are true, it's possible that ESPN views this as a case in which the economic benefit of firing with the pretense of cause is worth the risk of losing a wrongful termination suit. Once ESPN had the documentation of a[nother] harrassment claim, they had an option to keep him or cause to fire him for whatever reasons they wanted.
