Greg Norman Speaks Out Over Firing at Fox

Greg Norman says he was fired from Fox because the network was concerned the Shark would swim into dangerous waters.

Norman, speaking to Tim Rosaforte for Golf Digest, said “I thought I was handcuffed, to tell you the truth. There was a lot of stuff I wanted to say, but the final comment they told me [was that] I was too unpredictable. I thought that’s what they want you to do in that role.”
