    I think he should be sacked for being a thug/criminal, abusing his wife, and sucking. He isn't even good at trash talking.

    I want to know when slurs against fat people will be considered a hate crime.

    Right after slurs (denial) against global warming do.

    But there actually are fat people, but there is no AGW. It would be like claiming that verbal attacks on the presidential accomplishments of Barak Obama were a hate crime, since in both cases the target is purely mythical.

    What, you couldn't post a simple "no" or "yes" option?

    The vote is for no, unless his boss is a fag that gets offended.

    Doesn't seem he did anything deserving termination.

    It's way past time the people in this country ceased their efforts at mind control and started accepting the fact that their perversions and deviations don't automatically make them protected from the disapproval of others.

    For the other incidents, no one else would be fired for them under most normal circumstances, so why the double standard?

    The homosexuals don't deserve not to be slurred.

    They have no grounds for getting this man fired, not just because he made an arcane reference almost no one outside New York City understands.

    So, they don't like the guy.

    Fine.

    They should stop watching his games.

    No. I like giving lots of choices, it makes it more fun for me.

    Which would be the reason why he may get fired. After all, it is a business, is it not?

    Interesting that the above two things caused his suspension. He had previous, more serious (to my mind) problems:
    This is sarcasm right "Fired over a couple of Twitter remarks?"That how I took it so that is how I voted.

    No he shouldn't be fired.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
