    Old info ???
    This all transpired yesterday.
    When GM decides to stop making a particular model of a car they do not bring all the cars partially assembled on the production line to the dump. They finish them and sell them.
    Same with TV shows.
    There are no plans to tape any new episodes with Phil the asshole in them. That was a wise decision.
    A&E will air and rerun shows that he has already appeared in. That is logical bushiness practice.
    Stick a fork in him, he is done.

    Right, so nothing on topic, you're just offended because your hero proved she's an idiot. Figures.

    I believe that Charlie Sheen is still technically "suspended" from appearing on Two and a Half Men.
    A player under contract can not be "fired" until their contract runs out.

    So if the suspension was nonsense isn't the backlash over it just doubly so?

    I never said Robertson was imposing on anyone. He has an absolute right to say whatever he wants. A&E is also free to decide whether to fire him or not consistent with the terms of his contract.

    What is not allowed is discrimination based on race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation. If you can't comply with the demands of the Constitution and anti-discrimination laws, then don't open a business. Its as simple as that.

    Calm down. Yes old info - I and others stated in the original thread exactly what you describe. The suspension is meaningless. They already had the season in the can and Phil and the show were already on film hiatus (the period inbetween the ending of filming one season and the filming of the next season). That makes the suspension nonsense from the get-go.

    I already posted that there is no evidence of the OP in real news. But it really doesn't matter, you have to be several shades of moron to believe A&E isn't going to film the next season of their most popular show. Especially after today when the two largest sponsors for the show stood behind Phil and what he said.

    No, he was fired. And his contract is why he walked away with a buttload of money.
