“We are very pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to a member of the NFL Broadcast Boot Camp,” said Sky Sports NFL producer Karl Baumann. “It is a chance for us to introduce a new analyst to our U.K. audience and to benefit from their insight and expertise. We have been lucky to work with some outstanding NFL broadcasters and experts over the years and we are excited to see who will be joining us later this season.”

Comcast SportsNet To Carry Spectrum Demolition

Tuesday marks the end of an era in Philadelphia when the Spectrum is demolished.

Comcast SportsNet and CSNPhilly.com will make sure you don’t miss one second of the destruction with an one-hour live special called The Spectrum’s Final Show at Noon EST.

Hosted by Michael Barkann and Neil Hartman, the special will also feature the likes of Comcast-Spectacor Chairman Ed Snider, Flyers alums Bernie Parent and Bob Clarke, and Philadelphia 76ers Julius “Dr. J” Erving.

Since the 76ers and Flyers moved to the Wells Fargo Center in 1996, the Spectrum has been home to a minor league hockey team and an indoor soccer club.

Jay Mariotti Charged With Seven Misdemeanors

So much for Jay Mariotti dodging that major bullet.

Mariotti escaped felony charges from the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office, but city prosecutors have charged the 51-year-old sports personality with seven misdemeanors including false imprisonment, grand theft and vandalism.

Mariotti also faces two counts of domestic violence with injury and two counts of domestic violence. Each count carries a maximum of one year in jail, which means he could see seven years behind bars if convicted on all counts.

He will be arraigned in court on Friday.

The charges stem from an Aug. 21 incident with his girlfriend at the couple’s Venice, Calif. condo after the two reportedly got into an argument at a nightclub earlier in the evening.

According to LAPD sources, Mariotti shoved his girlfriend and grabbed her arm, which left marks. He was reportedly upset because his girlfriend flirted with another guy at the club.

Marioitti was arrested on suspicion of felony domestic assault and released from jail on $50,000 bail.

Mariotti’s return to ESPN’s Around The Horn or Aol’s Fanhouse appears bleak at best considering his absence from both platforms following his arrest.
