Sarah Phillips, Mysterious Writer, Fired By ESPN

sarah-phillips

In what has proved to be a wildly outrageous culmination of twists and turns, the truth behind who ‘Sarah Phillips’ really is, as well as her ascent and descent from ESPN has proved to be more difficult that anyone could have ever imagined.

The actual story has taken on a complete life of it’s own, causing even the most sane person a migraine trying to comprehend what it is exactly that is happening.

The story at it’s basic roots stems from former writer and analyst Sarah Phillips, who had become somewhat of a phenom when it comes to writing about gambling. This quick recognition led Phillips to a job with Covers.com as well as a job writing for ESPN Page 2, now known as ESPN Playbook.

While writing for Covers.com (a gambling/advice site), the talented young woman was thrown into question as to whether she was even real as her cover photos never actually seemed to be consistent, implying that Phillips had multiple identities that are still unknown.

Sparking a debate, this has led to a report released by Deadspin.com with accusations pouring out in regards to ‘Sarah Phillips’ scamming at least 2 different men in connection with her writing while at Covers.com and ESPN.com.

In response to the accusations and backlash, ESPN has promptly fired Sarah Phillips, cutting ties completely with the talented writer.

As to the accusations themselves, full accounts of the scams can be read in detail at Deadspin.com, who have done an incredible job at investigating the on-going saga that is Sarah Phillips.

The inner workings of this entire story is still a mystery to many, however it seems as though ESPN took the correct measures in firing and cutting ties with the real and/or fake Sarah Phillips.

How do the situations involving former ESPN employee Sarah Phillips deserve to be handled?

    I suppose this Excrement Sara Phillips News is newsworthy to former ESPN employee Sarah Phillips. Other than the acronym, hard to find any value.

    She should go on, OWN, and confess her sins, then make millions in endorsement deals.

    What a ripoff of Deadspin's work! A link that takes you there (but you don't know better) is all they get for blowing the doors off the situation.

    To me the relativity is this woman has been exposed as a con artist who could've and likely would've conned more people out of their websites for almost instant big money. You may or may not understand this but I assure you it is very relevant to many of us. This article is poor in terms of reporting the real story. In fact, it's called ESPN Playbook now and has been for a while not ESPN page 2. I suggest you read futher into this from more credible sources.

    The value is this woman has been exposed as a con artist who could've and likely would've conned more people out of their websites for almost instant big money. The value is to whoever has a website or social page with a huge following and there are many. This article is poor in terms of reporting this real story. In fact, it's called ESPN Playbook now and has been for a while not ESPN page 2. I suggest you read further into this from more credible sources.

    That is actually an insult to Sara Phillips. Sara may be a scammer but she can write. Chase has ZERO talent, imo

    EB Hawkins, you wrote a terrible article. First, it's not called ESPN page 2 anymore and has been ESPN Playbook. You left out the other "players" which is as big as part in this story as Sara Phillips. The best part of this article was the link back to Deadspin.com because you obviously don't fully understand what's going on either. I currently work at McDonalds but are you guys hiring writers right now, by chance? I'd like to apply.

    briandavisradio You are correct in your observation, but in today's reality, everybody should adopt a wary eye for anything that appears on this electronic cancer, namely the internet. Make these sayings your everyday credo, a. Caveat Emptor, and b. If it looks too good to be true, it always is.

    In reply to brianvisradio, remember two things when seeing anything on this electronic cancer we call the internet. a. Caveat Emptor, and b. If it looks too good to be true, it always is.

    I'd hire her. A future entreprenuer who made bad decissions at 22. My bad decissions at 22 were partying to hard to not make it to class the next day. She'll learn from this but must pay for any harm she caused. You go girl just do it clean.

    Got an answer for you, Gary. We're spending our present reading stupid news stories, which doesn't sound too beneficial for our futures. I'm not attacking you, I'm doing it too.
