    Prisco Fired for false mock drafts

    Draft expert fired for publishing several inaccurate mock drafts
    [/size][/size][/size]

    CBS Sportsline.com writer Pete Prisco was fired by the website on Monday for publishing a series of mock drafts in the weeks leading up to the NFL Draft that turned out to be fraught with errors.

    “We hold our writers to a high standard and Pete’s recent work was wildly inaccurate,” said Sportsline.com managing editor Dave Dambrow. “I mean, more than half of his last mock draft turned out to be wrong. More than half! And Alan Branch to the Bengals at No. 18? The guy didn’t even go in the firs round. That’s just terrible. We’re journalists. Our readers expect facts from us.”
    Prisco said he is sorry for the inaccuracy of his mock drafts, but stressed to Sportsline management that he did his best to get it right.
    “I’ve been publishing a new mock draft approximately every 48 minutes since February,” said Prisco. “I’ve done 4,329 mock drafts in that time. I’m sure that one of those in there somewhere along the way was right just by chance.”

    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.

    He should be fired for his uncanny man-love for Quinn, in his post draft grading he dished just about every team that didn't Quinn, he even to a jab at the Browns for not using the first pick to get Quinn :

    Prisco gave the vikings a lot of love for their draft picks in his article on cbs.sportsline.com which is why i feel kind of bad for him but not really

    Im kind of surprised. Its fairly hard to be accurate on mocks, I guess ive never hated Prisco myself.
