Maybe the brass at ESPN are trying to send a message with Curt Schilling’s punishment.

The network announced in a statement Thursday that it will be pulling the analyst from all TV coverage for the rest of the season.

At all times during the course of their engagement with us, our commentators are directly linked to ESPN and are the face of our brand. We are a sports media company. Curt’s actions have not been consistent with his contractual obligations nor have they been professionally handled; they have obviously not reflected well on the company. As a result, he will not appear on ESPN through the remainder of the regular season and our Wild Card playoff game.

Schilling got into trouble when he sent a tweet comparing Muslims to Nazis.
