Can someone post the story in the OP here. The link doesn't work for me (think my work filter is blocking it because of the words in the URL).

You can recover your career after DUIs, cheating on your spouse, PEDs, but it is very tough to recover from child porn charges.

I think you can recover from ONE DUI, multiple is another story. Although I think Barkley had more than one.

If they like you, you can recover from dang near anything. Marv Albert recovered from biting holes in the back of his lover.

But yeah, child porn's a bit tough.

Wow. I listen to ESPN Football Today, a podcast he does weekly in the off-season and just about daily during the season. He stopped doing the show about 1-2 months ago, the replacement hosts never said why. Oof.

Interesting. ESPN is kind of famous for doing this. Peter Pascarelli lost his Baseball Today podcasting gig after disparaging the holy Bud Selig. Eric Karabell has spent the time since being a passive-aggressive baby about the thing rather than just moving on.I wonder what Green did to run afoul with ESPN management prior to this. It wouldn't take much. He wasn't particularly good anyway.. just really loud and opinionated. Looks like none of that matters now.

BTW, his dad may be the worst football radio announcer I've ever heard.

I suppose, but in his case it really wasn't.

The next Football Today should be interesting. Even if they don't say anything. Just feeling the energy.

:lmao:The Baseball Today after canning Pasquarelli was really uncomfortable. They swept it under the rug in about 30 seconds.

New Football Today podcast this morning and I'm not sensing anything. It was probably taped last night.

After listening to FT all last season, and Green leaving FT without much explanation, I'm obsessed with this story.

ESPN must have learned of the coke addiction at least, and relegated him to an online contributor a few months back.

This is what ESPN does. Just sweep it under the rug and let the audience go nuts trying to understand what happened. It puts a lot of undue pressure on the replacement hosts. That Pascarelli situation just about put Karabell over the edge. The odd thing about it was that they made Pascarelli record an special apology podcast and canned him the next day anyway.

:rolleyes:I boycotted the Baseball Today podcast for how they handled Pascarelli (even though I find him generally annoying), and I think I'll have no problem doing the same with Football Today.

Would they be allowed to comment for legal reasons? As I posted in one of the threads on this I've got the producer Pod Vader on my facebook page and he said he wasn't going to comment and would delete any comments made about the story.

What did Pasquarelli do?
I didn't know either so I looked it up. Looks like all he did was say a new Selig statue would be a good target for pigeons. That's it unless I'm missing something.

Nope, that's it. He apologized for it in a special podcast, and was fired the next day.Nothing kept them from talking about Pascarelli's firing, they just decided not to. In the ensuing months, Karabell was supposed to have a new co-host, but ESPN dithered to the point of being obnoxious. They finally added that Seth Everett guy who is also on XM radio. Not a fan.

This is the first I've heard of this. I'm surprised I didn't catch anything on it on the MN sports talk stations with it being Denny Green's son...

Dennis Green once talked to me. My friend and I were walking on Mankato State's campus and he was coming from the other direction. We just said "Hi" and he said, "How's it going guys?" as we passed each other.

wow

It was a run, JG.

Very sad. You never know about people. He always sounded like such an affable, grounded person.

True. The other weird part is I wonder what his father is thinking/doing. His son is sitting in jail on suicide watch for a heinous crime but he is still his son. Tough spot.

that is insane. unbelievable.

sidenote, Football Today is now unlistenable. JG wasn't great or anything, but now the main host is Matt Williamson, who seems to know his stuff, but he's unbearable in player interviews. he spends half the interview praising/kissing the player's ###, it's awful. JG was annoying at times, but he was at least used to working with/being around players so he never did that.

i'm dumping it until the season starts, then i'll check it out again.

Just crossed my mind today. Here's an (kinda old) update from Wikipedia:

Jeremy Green (born July 21, 1971) is a former sports columnist and NFL studio analyst who most recently worked for ESPN,[1] where among other things he hosted the daily American football podcast "Football Today". Green was recently removed indefinitely from the "Football Today" podcast due to what has been cited as personal reasons.[2]

Green is the son of former Minnesota Vikings and Arizona Cardinals head coach Dennis Green. He formerly worked as a scout for several National Football League teams and director of pro personnel for the Cleveland Browns.[3]

On July 8, 2010, Green was arrested for possession of child pornography, possession of narcotics and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was in custody on $750,000 cash bail.[4][5] Following his arrest, an ESPN spokesman said Green was no longer employed by ESPN.[1] On July 20, 2010, Green pleaded not guilty to the charges.[6] On February 11, 2011 he pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography.[7] Sentenced to five years in prison in April, his current release date is July 2015, but his record indicates that Green may face charges in another state. Jeremy Green is the father of 3 young kids.

I had no idea this happened. I feel like I was just listening to him last season, but it must have been two seasons ago.

ESPN is good at pushing things under the rug. He just disappeared off the Football Today podcast and they never gave a reason or discussed it. He was on medical leave for a bit (drugs presumably), then came back for a few shows, then was gone.

Jeremy Green was thankful to the judge who sentenced him to the minimumn five year sentence for possessing child pornography. Jeremy Green claimed to understand the implications of his behavior. “”I’d like to apoligize to my victims even though I had no actual victim,” Jeremy Green told the court, “I do realize that every image I looked at was a potential victim.”

Jeremy Green does not understand the ramifications even after nearly a year of treatment while in prison. Every image he looked at was not a potential victim but an actual victim of his own deviant mind. He THANKED THE JUDGE! I will post more on this story soon. Jeremy Green will possibly face more charges after serving 5 years in prison.

5 years is an awful lot for some kiddie pron...I dont remember Pete Townsend even going to jail for it.What did Gary Glitter get for railing a 12yr old or whatever? I doubt 5 years

:goodposting: Anyone find out what exactly he was looking at? I mean was it very young children or say 17 just about to turn 18 year old chicks. It also seems like there's a lot of people who molest children who don't even serve 5 years.So seeing naked pics of under 18 yr olds >= committing an act with someone under 18 :confused:

Last June, Green chatted online for hours with "lendingmom12," who he believed to be a mother willing to introduce him to her children, according to the charges. Green allegedly shared photos and videos with her over the Internet of very young children.

Unbeknownst to Green, "lendingmom12" was actually an undercover detective from Fosythe, Missouri. The detective passed the information along to Bristol police officers, who traced Green to the Holiday Inn.

Green worked as an NFL analyst for ESPN before his arrest.

​Green's girlfriend was with him when the police busted in. On the flash drives, police found more than 100 pornographic photos, many of kids between 2 and 10 years old.

Green was booked on $750,000 bail and placed on suicide watch. He has since lost his job with ESPN.
