BUT.....since you are righteous enough to empathize with his "blight" I will give YOU the respect and say:

"Good Luck Kanell, hope you find a job soon and hopefully this time you can actually contribute something important to society. I don't know.........maybe volunteer teacher?"

I wonder if Danny now regrets that he didn't go to Michigan. One phone call from Harbaugh and he would probably get a better job that pays more money.


April 26th, 2017 at 8:44 PM ^

But, is he being classless for voicing what he thinks is the truth? If we look at the situation for what it is, it makes sense. We won't really know, but I wouldn't doubt it as the truth. He didn't have anything to gain through playing, really. Why ruin his stock in case of injury during the bowl? I don't agree with doing thay, and I'm not saying it's what he did, but I'm not saying it's unlikely either.

I just think it's crazy that because a guy said something negative about a Michigan player, he's public enemy number one. He wasn't even too over the line, I'm not sure I would even consider it over the line at all. Honestly, he's probably right. Personally, I wouldn't go tweeting something like that if it isn't proven, but people went and got all salty about it. It wasn't that big of a deal really.


April 27th, 2017 at 4:18 PM ^

What do you think he is probably right about? Kannel was spitting out hot takes left and right on Peppers:


I expect people who are attacking people's IQs and suggesting they faked an injury to base that on something more than speculation. Otherwise its irresponsible and he deserves all the criticism he gets/got.

Reporters and broadcasters are supposed to present an objective story.

But this guy and a few others on ESPN just have a boner for UM.....and they are happy to announce it at any opportunity.

Why would anyone subject himself to being an out-of-the-park homer?


April 26th, 2017 at 4:20 PM ^

I didn't like him but I'm not going to jump for joy at a person losing their job.

mgoblog going to hire chantell jennings?

Jamele Hill checks a lot of boxes for the World Wide Leader. I don't think she even had any consequences for her expletive filled twitter rant after Staee lost to Nebraska in 2015. Unfortunately she isn't going anywhere.

First, he's a talking head, entertainer who has made millions (he's been at ESPN 8 years, he's made a few bucks there) and will continue to based on his notoriety.  I give the play by play/game announcers credit as they do a lot of homework before games.  I have less sympathy for a guy who spouts hot takes without facts for a living.  He can easily get another radio job given his background.  The people who aren't Danny (not well known athletes) get my sympathy/empathy as losing their job requires a major impact on their lives.


Secondly, is it not interesting that of all the people to tweet their departure, Danny's was the only bitter/salty one (if you go through the deadspin list)?  Shows what type of character he has...



April 26th, 2017 at 5:20 PM ^

Ok. I get it. We all were angry at him over his hot take on Peppers, but he is still a person who lost the job that he loved.

Not a good look by us to celebrate his ouster.

Not to mention, Russillo's radio show might be in peril now.


April 26th, 2017 at 5:34 PM ^

by shitting all over him with no proof

he also trashes Harbaugh and Michigan


when you treat people like shit, people do not mourn your loss (we are talking financial, not the death of anyone)


I am happy he is off the air - he is a miserable fuck that I am sure will get hired by FSU to further trash us on the air somehow
