Jason Whitlock Leaves The Kansas City Star

Jason Whitlock hasn't filed a sports column since May 26 and completed his last "Independent Thoughts" column for the Kansas City Star on June 2.

We haven't heard from his since and there have been all kinds of rumors flying around. This whole time the Star would occasionally put on page two of the paper (as recently as Sunday), a photo of Whitlock along with "Jason Whitlock is on vacation."

It became clear after time he wasn't on vacation as he continued to write columns on FOXSports.com.

The Star confirmed this morning that Whitlock is leaving the Star to pursue other interests.

He's been with the Star since 1994. Whitlock is the biggest name in town and a guy people love to hate. Right or wrong, he challenged the way we think about sports, specifically the Chiefs.

I could go on and on about the things I like about Whitlock and I could go on and on about the things I don't like about Whitlock. Whether you like the guy or not, this is not a good day for sports coverage in Kansas City.
