ESPN Sends Steve Phillips Packing

10/25/2009 10:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Steve Phillips FiredDavid Letterman he is not -- only a few days after news broke of ESPN analyst Steve Phillips' affair with a 22-year-old production assistant, he's out of a job.

An ESPN spokesperson said Phillips' ability to be an effective analyst was "significantly and irreparably damaged" -- so the sports network decided to give him the old heave-ho.

As we first reported, Steve's hookup Brooke Hundley filed for a restraining order against him one day after she dropped off a letter at his house explaining the affair -- which basically said they were meant to be together.

Hundley withdrew the complaint a few weeks later.

I think he gets what he deserved. You run around on your wife and this is what can happen.

Not the smartest tool in the shed to throw away a cush job because he just couldn't keep his pants on. Just goes to prove that you can't fix stupid.

I feel bad for the wife - and also the girl, Hundley (though not as much). The wife not only has she been kicked in the stomach and had her heart broken - the whole world knows all about it. That kind of deception is incredibly painful. As for Hundley...she was old enough to know what she was doing was wrong, but my guess is she has extrememly low self esteem (which I'm sure is why Phillips chose her - so he could be worshipped). If a powerful and reasonably good looking man pays attention to you and fills a vast, empty space you have, you would be more likely to put your scruples aside and do whatever you could to keep your "fix". Phillips victimized everyone involved. He made a spectacle of his wife and family. He taunted the week psyche of Hundley and also brought negative light on ESPN. Hope his kids can stay in college and the family house is not foreclosed upon. The wife, family, and Hundley need some intense threapy to help heal. Phillips needs.......to beg a lot of forgiveness and try to make ammends - and those ammends may be letting his family go to have a sane, secure life without him

Dan, your list is hysterical. My biggest question to Steve is how were you able to sleep with someone who looked like that? Were you drugged to not know what you were sleeping with? The lights always off?

I applaud Steve for giving UGLY girls a chance in the bedroom.
