    I haven't read all of these posts but did do a slight Google on Duck..

    Dude started ahead of Terry Bradshaw at Louisiana Tech before quitting football
    after his sophomore year to focus on hunting..Many pro scouts though he had a career..

    Then he had his difficult decade..

    Exactly! Another part of the reason that the hitman doing the interview, because he KNEW what Robertson was going to say.

    It was a set-up from the git-go.

    As I recall Paula Deen committed her behavior on her show, at her job. Not to mention there was (again as I recall) illegality in what she did, wasn't she being sued?

    I'm not arguing anything, just reminding you that you can't play fast and loose with the facts without getting called on it.
    I don't recall saying he was fired. What I said was that he was "dumped" and "let go". Being forced to resign qualifies.

I may say that crimes include trespass, arson, jaywalking and murder yet that is not implying, in any way, that all crimes should have the same sentence or that I have listed all crimes. Just as all sins are not crimes, all crimes are not sins - there is overlap but that is not relevant to discussion of either sin or crime.
    I've heard this "sins are equal" line. It's mostly cute, but I do not believe you will find a single person that literally approaches the problem this way. All you have to do is find one instance where he expresses the thought that one is higher than the other, and the system crumbles.

    Post 883 for one, then you went on in several others about how he was "let go".

    what part of "all contracts are not the same" is too complex for you to understand? there is nothing in my contract that prevents me from giving interviews. the only thing my contract prohibits is releasing propriatary information

    Go away.
    you're the one crying about it. take your ball and go home if you don't like.

    You are speculating that I am incorrect...
    I'm not speculating on anything. merely pointing out that you made a claim that you cannot back up

    even while you confirm the common use of the very thing I believe is at hand.
    and again...not all contracts are identical.
