Hate Mariotti Now!
You never want to kick a man when he's down, unless of course that man is Jay Mariotti.
Mariotti, 52, is a writer for Fanhouse.com, a former writer for the Chicago-Sun Times, and a regular guest commentator on ESPN's "Around the Horn". He was arrested early Saturday morning on charges of suspicion of felony domestic assault. Something to do with his girlfriend allegedly flirting with another man at a club in LA.
Those who are familiar with Mariotti's work, know that he's prone to call for quick and definite punishment whenever an athlete finds themselves on the wrong side of the law, or a very conservative public opinion.
Here's Mariotti on whether Mike Vick should be allowed back into the NFL after his prison time.
Here's Mariotti on how LeGarrette Blount should get jail time for last years Oregon-Boise St. brawl.
Here's Mariotti on MLB's "too soft" stance on violence, on and off the field.
And trust me, he's much worse on television.
Here's hoping that Mariotti takes accountability for his actions, and asks for the judge to punish him to the fullest extent of the law.
