Personal favorites that I wrote
Reynolds, ESPN settle wrongful termination suit out of court
2008-04-15 18:13

Big hugs all around!

"My family and I are ecstatic," said Reynolds, the former All-Star second baseman. "This is a matter of principal. And I stood on principal and never wavered. "All of my goals were met, and now I look forward to concentrating on the game I love."

Presumably, Reynolds spoke better than the USA Today copy editors.

The New York Times apparently cleaned up the statement.

“This was a matter of principle,” Reynolds, who now works for, said in a statement. “I stood on principle and didn’t waver. My goals were met. Now I can put this behind me and concentrate on the game I love.”

Yay. Now only if ESPN would put him back on BBTN. . .
And I don't mean that as a great compliment to Harold. Just that Steve Philips, et al. . .?

Seems like that would be fair ... I mean, wasn't John Kruk accused of harassing the dessert tray in the ESPN cafeteria?

Maybe he really meant it that way. Suing someone for millions of dollars is always a matter of principal.

Says ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys: "Our confidence in both the appropriateness of our action and our legal position never wavered. The resolution allows us to spare the people involved further difficult disruptions to their lives and is economically compelling to ESPN."

There was a whole lot of waver avoidance in this case.

The principal is your pal, Harold. So you shouldn't stand on him (or her), or else you'll have another harassment to deal with...

To be fair, aren't we missing the word "out" in the headline?

On principal, I added the word "out"
