Jay Mariotti: The AOL columnist and Around the Horn fixture still hasn’t broken his silence since his arrest last weekend, but his employers have – his column has been “suspended” and he won’t be appearing on ESPN next week when ATH returns to the air. The guess here is that he’ll lose both of his jobs and he’ll go back to the radio. For those of you thinking someone may snatch him up as a columnist … when was his last scoop? His last thought-provoking columns? The last quality interview he conducted? For shits and giggles, please see this brilliant collection of Mariotti flip-flop columns from 2004-2005. When the wind changes direction, so does Mariotti. [NYT; Previously: Dan LeBatard on Mariotti]
