Terry Frei No Longer Employed At The Denver Post

from Scott Allen of the Washington Post,

Denver Post publisher Mac Tully and editor Lee Ann Colacioppo issued a statement on Monday that sportswriter Terry Frei is no longer an employee of the newspaper one day after he tweeted that he was “very uncomfortable” with Japanese driver Takuma Sato winning the Indianapolis 500 during Memorial Day weekend.

“We apologize for the disrespectful and unacceptable tweet that was sent by one of our reporters,” the statement reads. “Terry Frei is no longer an employee of The Denver Post. It’s our policy not to comment further on personnel issues. The tweet doesn’t represent what we believe nor what we stand for. We hope you will accept our profound apologies.”...

Frei issued an apology Sunday after facing backlash for his tweet that he later deleted about Sato’s historic win.

“Nothing specifically personal, but I am very uncomfortable with a Japanese driver winning the Indianapolis 500 during Memorial Day weekend,” Frei tweeted after Sato became the first Japanese driver to win the prestigious race.

Morning Line- Bruce Arthur

ESPN isn’t everything, and the league isn’t exactly folding, but hockey got less relevant in America on Wednesday, bookending an era that probably began when the NHL left ESPN after the 2004-05 lockout for NBC and Comcast, leading to that time where hockey was on the Outdoor Life Network. Then-union head Paul Kelly once said, “It doesn’t have a lot of properties people want to tune in to, unless you are a hunter or a fisherman or you like turtle wrestling.”

Well, there’s a little more hockey wilderness out there now. It was an American, Badger Bob Johnson, who coined the phrase, it’s a great day for hockey. Wednesday, for American hockey, was something less than that.
