View Full Version : Sean Salisbury "sexting" his way out of a career

09-11-2009, 07:52 PM

According to one source close to the station, Salisbury "freaked out a station promo girl after sexting her". Program director Tom Bigby had no comment about the alleged incident but said that a formal press release about Salisbury's dismissal is forthcoming. Damn.
The old number we have for Salisbury isn't working, but hopefully he'll have a comment about this at some point.
From one reader:
I listen to The Fan in Dallas pretty much every day, particulalry in the afternoon when Salisbury is on. About a month ago when the cowboys were preparing to go to camp, salisbury was doing a show on location somewhere. On air he asked out one of the promo girls to go to San Antonio with him to cowboys camp. He got her number off air on commercial break and later bragged on air about getting the girl's number. They even posted a picture of her on the 105.3 website to prove how "hot" she was. I think her name was Julie if I remember correctly. Anyways, no idea if this is the same girl that is making this accusation but I thought this sounded like it could be the same girl.

This is after he left ESPN because of this incident:


The Sean Salisbury (http://deadspin.com/tag/sean-salisbury/) cell phone saga has always seemed to me to be a lot like the legend of Bigfoot; shrouded in mystery, leaving large tracks but not much in the way of tangible proof. It's hard to believe that it's been more than two years since the Lil' Sean Incident (http://deadspin.com/sports/espn/something-to-think-about-while-watching-sean-salisbury-226883.php), when Salisbury allegedly whipped out a cell phone camera and showed around a photo of his ***** at an ESPN party. It's always been assumed that that was the motivating factor leading to his later dismissal from ESPN. Salisbury, though, denies that it even happened. (http://deadspin.com/5037436/sean-salisbury-isnt-angry-anymore) He now works CBS Radio in Dallas at KRLD-FM 105.3 The Fan, co-hosting a show with Newy Scruggs. He claims that he's not angry anymore; life goes on, and the saga of Lil' Sean drifts into murky legend.
But then suddenly, from out of the woods, comes an eyewitness account. Here is a woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, who is a former ESPN employee and says that she saw it all. She was at the party in which Salisbury allegedly passed around a photo of his BattleBot. She swears it's true, that she saw said photo, and is prepared to tell about it. Let's get right to the details.
"It was a former employee's going away party, held at one of the few decent bars near the ESPN campus. I had to work that evening, and so showed up around 11 or 12. I walked in and the place was pretty packed. I said hi to a few friends and then Salisbury came up to me. He was always very nice to me, (I) never had any issues with him, maybe b/c I was dating another co-worker and Sean wasn't stupid enough to get him angry. Anyway, he said hello and asked if I wanted to see a picture of his baby. I knew he had kids, but thought they were all older, but what did I know, maybe he had recently had another. So, of course I said sure.
"The picture was on his cell phone, and needless to say it was not a child. It was a shot of him lying on his back, on his bed, naked, with an erection. The photo was taken from the edge of the bed, I don't know if he did it himself or had some help. I also didn't look long enough to tell whether or not he should have been so proud of the photo in the first place. I wasn't shocked or appalled, just kind of stunned really.
"For the rest of the night Sean asked every new person who walked in the door if they wanted to see a picture of his baby, and would then subject them to a photo of his *****. Most of the other females in attendance started warning others as they arrived what he was doing, so eventually everyone caught on. To me the funniest part is that one of the guys there who was kind of a hanger-on with a lot of the talent and analysts kept asking to see the picture over and over again. He thought is was great!
"It wasn't a huge deal to me, I just thought it was a stupid thing to do. Why Sean thought showing off that picture, at what was essentially an ESPN party, was a good idea is beyond me. I don't know that he ever got reprimanded for it, but I'm sure it was brought up when he did eventually get canned. Things spread like wildfire at that place, I'm sure it was only a matter of days before Norby knew.
I'd like to point out once again that Salisbury denies all of this. But it's very close to the version that's most often repeated when people talk about the story of "Sean and his baby." So this isn't breaking news by any means, but the more independent sources who emerge with essentially the same tale, the easier it is to believe.

For some reason, I was thinking Ron Jaworski instead of Sean Salisbury. Forgot all about him.

09-11-2009, 08:40 PM
ahahh Sean Salisbury, I remember when he got fired and then everyone wanted his buddy Merril Hodge to follow him out as well.

I thought about him when I saw Bruschi was joining ESPN, been a while since I saw Salisbury go after Clayton on their on-air time.

I hated Sean Salisbury and I still do.

I hated Sean Salisbury and I still do.

Me too. He was one of the dumbest "experts" I have ever seen while he was at ESPN.

This really didn't need it's own thread. It belongs in the sig request one.

09-12-2009, 12:36 AM
I wondered why he was on The Fan recently.

Sean Salisbury was an idiot commentator and an idiot in life.

Sean Salisbury has made hundred of thousands of dollars talking about sports. He's a cool dude and doesn't fail at life. So he showed a pic of his dick to some girls at a party, so what?

I hated Sean Salisbury and I still do.he was usually the only person on ESPN to pick the Saints to win a game during the Aaron Brooks era.

I, for one, forgive him. I talk about sports and have at many points in my life actually shown my dick, not just a picture, to some girls at a party.

Didn't he have a part in Benchwarmers?

09-12-2009, 11:12 AM
Didn't he have a part in Benchwarmers?

Yeah, he was a *** guy.

And as far as the accusations go, I don't see a problem with it. I actually like him more now, that's awesome!

The main thing i hated about Salisbury was that smug ass attitude and the condescending tone he would give Clayton only because he was an ex player. He was a scrub all his career and he thought he had the right to just talk down to everyone because of that. Clayton was right most of the time and he still tried to just yell his way out of a discussion. F that guy.

09-12-2009, 03:58 PM
always wondered what happened to him. Guess the guys a creep huh

09-24-2009, 12:25 AM
Sean Salisbury to sue Deadspin, CBS, and ESPN. Also, he's writing a tell-all book on his 12 years in ESPN. Awesome.

E-Mail sent by Salisbury to the editor at Deadspin
And yes for the record that book is being written and will rock the foundation of that company. Stuff that the sports world will not believe. I'm done being nice so prepare urself and u go ahead and put all of it on there because with the things I know folks are gonna be running for the hills. I will restore my reputation in a huge way. And by the way the girl u guys tracked down after two years who lied about the cell phone **** that u guys ran with a few months ago is the same woman who begged me on three different occasions to have sex with her and I said no. So she will be exposed as well. Damn I can't wait for all this


09-24-2009, 12:30 AM
Pretty professional stuff right there. His reputation is being restored in a huge way in my heart. <3

09-24-2009, 12:35 AM
Wow this is pretty hilarious.

09-24-2009, 12:43 AM
If all of this is true, i almost feel bad for Salisbury. Either way, i plan on buying his book. I wanna hear his stories on how Erin Andrews screws all the white big name athletes.

09-24-2009, 12:53 AM
Salisbury is the Jose Canseco of ESPN.

09-24-2009, 01:59 AM
LOL wondered what happened to him this is freaking hilarious great stuff LOL!

09-24-2009, 08:30 AM
Of course he has to be an ex-viking.

09-24-2009, 08:47 AM

Anyone who has been shown a photograph of a ***** unexpectedly at a party knows.... it's pretty damn weird.
