Before A & E asked Phil to stop doing the prayer at the end of the show. They didn't feel it was PC. He told them to pound sand. I don't believe Phil Robertson really cares if he is on or off the show. He was successful before with his duck calls and made a good living. DD just allowed him and his family to make more money than they ever imagined. As far the his sons doing the show, I'm sure they will have to because of the contract. But then again a family that hunts together... stays together. As stated before, those who A&E are trying to appease most likely don't watch the show and don't care, if they do they watch the show they know where Mr. Robertson stands. Asking Phil about his thoughts on gays, is like asking Nugent his thoughts on anti hunters. You know what you're going to get.
