Pat McAfee calls out Norby Williamson as the one accountable

Despite being one of the leading sports talk shows, Pat McAfee has claimed that his show is being attempted to disrupt, and he has specifically named ESPN’s head of production, Norby Williamson.

“There are folks actively trying to sabotage us from within ESPN. More specifically, I believe Norby Williamson is the guy attempting to sabotage our program. I’m not 100% sure — that is just seemingly the only human that has information, and then somehow that information gets leaked and it’s wrong, and then it sets a narrative of what our show is. And then are we just going to combat that from a rat every single time?” said McAfee said on his show this Friday.

“Somebody tried to get ahead of our actual ratings release with wrong numbers 12 hours beforehand. That’s a sabotage attempt, and it’s been happening…from some people who didn’t necessarily love the old addition of the ‘Pat McAfee Show’ to the ESPN family,” the 36-year-old analyst further added.
