SNY gives not-so-subtle message that station is no longer interested in Banks


(NAVAJO COUNTRY, AZ) — SNY contributor and former Giants great, Carl Banks, received a not-so-subtle message from network execs yesterday that the station was no longer interested in his services, as he was left for dead in the Arizona desert while supposedly covering the Super Bowl.

Sources say a "confused" Banks was dispatched to the desert for a brief spot on the popular talk show "Daily News Live", with producers saying the desert would add a "nice, authentic feel" to his coverage, before they eventually sped off in a unmarked van.

Shortly after his broadcast, Banks was seen wearing a headband, leading a pack of coyotes and reciting obscure Doors’ lyrics while occasionally blindsiding unsuspecting cacti.

    It’s so sad. Looks like he was stood up for some sort of secluded dinner. Is this a lost episode of The Bachelor?

    What a terrible message to send to a fantastic Super Tecmobowl player.

    Why is he all bundled up? I bet he’s been out there for weeks without food or water.

    I had a better set of furniture in my first apartment after college.
