    Skip Bayless criticizes Prescott going public with mental health battle

    Fox Sports does "not agree" with Skip Bayless' comments criticizing Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott for coming forward speaking about his battle with depression.

    Bayless said on his "Undisputed" show Thursday "I don't have sympathy for him going public with, 'I got depressed' and 'I suffered depression early in COVID to the point that I couldn't even go work out.' Look, he's the quarterback of America's team."'

    Prescott said during a television interview that the coronavirus pandemic and the suicide of one of his brothers by suicide this spring carried a heavy emotional burden. He told reporters on Thursday that he sought help from family and the Cowboys.

    That wasn't good enough for Bayless, who said that Prescott should have kept his struggles private or shared with only a limited group of people because of his role as an NFL starting quarterback. Co-host Shannon Sharpe quickly rebuked Bayless for his remarks.


    Fox Sports said in its statement that Prescott showed courage in revealing his struggles with depression and mental health before admonishing Bayless.

    "We do not agree with Skip Bayless' opinion on Undisputed this morning. We have addressed the significance of this matter with Skip and how his insensitive comments were received by people internally at Fox Sports and our audience," the statement said.

    Bayless moved from ESPN to Fox in 2016. His four year, $25 million US contract expires this month.

    Definitely not a fan of Skip Bayless. Obviously he's entitled and paid quite handsomely for his opinion, but I mean, that's a pretty low thing to say at a time when we're encouraging people to speak out about mental health.

    these shows are extremely scripted... first take, undisputed, first things first ect... they probably picked Skip to have this opinion on him bc hes the biggest Dak lover in America, so his opinion wouldnt come off as "just hating on him"
    YOU JUST MADE THE LIST!!!!!

    Eh, maybe...rumor is his salary is 5 million annually. If I was paid 5mil a year to talk on TV for 150 minutes a day, I'd probably say whatever my producers told me to.

    He already does. He says crazy things daily but Id put my foot down on certain things. If they want to fire me for having morales then so be it. Hes probably got enough money that he wouldnt have to work another day in his life anyway

    There are some topics you just don't play with for ratings....if that was scripted it only makes things worse.

    I'm shocked more players haven't come out criticizing Dak honestly.

    What he did was courageous.

    well I for one take the subject of mental illness quite seriously, so any network that would actually script something like that drops way off my viewing schedule
