Scott knew long before he appeared on the show with his kid that he was out of a job.
i wish he would of told howard "Hey ass wipe, get one of your daughters on the show and you play the game instead."
He probably wanted the $ from the sponsor to go to his own kid though. DePace said on Twitter he'd be around until early November, so he's got another week to go before he can start collecting his generous severance from HTV.
He's going to be fine. I'm sure there's a huge demand for directors of a show with completely stationary characters talking to each other, with one of them not even in the room or on camera.
His future is made.
"Hello Mr. DePace. Thank you for auditioning to direct Monday Night Football. Do you have any questions before you start? "
"Well duh. Of course I do. Where is the button labeled 'quarterback'?"
"We have no such button Mr. DePace."
"Then how am I supposed to get the quarterback on camera?! Where will he be sitting? "
"He wont be sitting anywhere. He will be moving about the field and you will have to keep the camera on him."
"Keep the camera ON HIM?! What kinda wizardy are you babbling about? Cameras don't just 'move'!! You first need to hold a meeting or two in order to decide which direction the camera should point, and then you have to bolt it down. THEN you make a button for it and label it "Quarterback"! What's your iq?"
"I think we've seen enough. We have another director auditioning in a few moments. Please leave and send in JD on your way out. "
