Here are the series of Tweets issued by Greg Williams Sunday afternoon (thanks to Anonymous commenters for the reports):
I have so much 49'er information I want to share on our pre and post games shows on THE FAN...but.I was fired...and the other hosts agreed"
All FAN FANS...ask Richie why I was fired..he just said he didn't think I possessed the necessary traits to do a quality post game show.."
I really wish I was welcomed at Frankies today..but the other hosts have made their thoughts know...being fired hurts..."
@bbshelton ..do you think people would listen??...I would definitely consider it....I miss it so much...but CBS made a decision..and I'm out"
@richiewhitt ..Frankie's might be packed...too bad there's not enough room for me...but I understand...you guys DON'T want me there....."
The initial question was whether his "firing" related solely to Cowboy game-day participation, or his weekday gig. The foregoing suggests the former -- as of 8 PM Sunday.
Still not finding anything on the Internets about any of this. To the best of this site's knowledge, he's still employed by The Fan as a weekday host.
But what do you do with a guy who issues serial sad-puppy whining Tweets about being excluded from Weekend coverage? Where he reports that his employment savior, media champion, and on-air partner Richie Whitt told him to his face that he didn't have the skill set to do a conventional pre/post-game show? Has CBS/The Fan just made a decision to ignore these outbursts and judgment lapses? Or will they do what any other employer would do? Some kind of discipline, up to and possibly including suspension/termination.
Suspect RWhitt and CBS/Fan poobahs are meeting tonight to decide what to do. Oh, yeah, there will be lawyers there.
I have the same question Confessors have been asking: What is he thinking? Either he believes he's finished at The Fan and is reaching out for a final grasp at attention, OR he's fearful of it and thinks that by hinting at it online the millions of fans he imagines he has will rise up in his defense.
Either way, I have the same reaction as most of the Confessors commenting here -- it's sad, sad, sad.
