    Apparently they have/ have had a lot of lefties (including Olbermann) in their radio show though, not sure if that counts.
    I haven't seen Olbermann on ESPN since he left to go be a talking head on MSNBC.

    Yet they were surprisingly silent about the negative press Hitler got when people compared Bush to him. Must be the Liberal Media's fault.

    I'm too lazy to read the thread. Yes, I hate people like me too.

    That said, Hank Williams Jr. has the right to make an ass of himself on national television, and he exercised that right. Others have a right to distance their association from someone who makes an ass of himself on national television, and have exercised that right.

    No rights have been violated, all rights have been exercised... do the mashed potatoes come with gravy? 'Cause if they do, I might change my poll vote.

    Predictable knee-jerk reaction on the part of ESPN. Typical in a society where political correctness now supercedes common sense and rational thinking.

    Sorry, fixed it. This is what inevitably happens when attempting to respond to multiple posts simultaneously. The ol' natural data processor isn't what it used to be.

    Do you think that people sometimes say things that they don't truly believe or say things before they really think about the implications? Especially those who've donated a large portion of their brains to George Dickel over the past 40 years?

    of course, absolutely!

    but that doesnt mean there isnt repercussions for what one says or that sometimes what one says cant be taken back.

    And not that it matters but in my opinion he planned and wanted to say that, (not all of it but talk about the golf game) if you watch the video its not like a segway led into it, he kind of randomly brought it.

    and what does george dickle have to do with it?
