Far be it from Curt Schilling to let Dan Shaughnessy and Michael Felger have the last word.
On Thursday night, after Schilling's firing by ESPN for his latest controversial social-media post -- an anti-transgender statement on Facebook -- Shaughnessy discussed the issue on Sports Tonight with Michael Felger and Lou Merloni. All agreed that Schilling's dismissal was justified, based on the fact that he'd been warned time and again by ESPN to tone down his public political comments.
"He got what he was asking for, and I don't have a lot of sympathy for him right now," said Shaughnessy, with whom Schilling has feuded from almost the day the pitcher arrived in Boston. "I'm just going to miss him. He's good on TV."
Didn't take long for Schilling to respond . . .
And then he added a comment on CSN's Facebook page, under a link to the video . . .
Don't need the advice of a bitter human who only remains relevant because of that coif and his desire to take opposing views, regardless of their factual truths. CHB was irrelevant the day we won game 4 and the World Series, ending something he made a career out of inventing, the "Curse". It was a curse of talent, nothing else. People like this need a boogeyman to create content, original thought escapes them
Just for good measure, he threw in a shot at Felger:
@dawsonoot two things, I didn't ask for your opinion and Mike Felger is about as large a know-nothing douche as ever existed.— Curt Schilling (@gehrig38) April 22, 2016
