hell yeh. you never see him anymore - think he was pretty much blacklisted (excuse the pun) by all tv/radio stations (although i do remember him commentating a couple more times, maybe on espn).

the bbc made a documentary about what happened and it was pretty excruciating stuff, for a number of reasons.
