49ers Announcer Suspended after comments about Jackson

Recommended Posts

I'm not posting the details just the article below for the guys who don't watch the news.

 

I don't know if they are racially motivated, the guy is a bone head, or a combination of both. He goes on to compliment his athletic ability.

It could have been as innocent as comments about Jim Palmer pitching at Memorial Stadium with his high arm angle and the white house beyond the centerfield fence making the ball hard to pick up. They use to joke that Palmer payed to have that house painted every year.  Still, unfortunately, the mouth sometimes beats the brain and the consequences are pretty substantial.

What's really funny is, he's the 'color' analyst.  But, he is right.  Maybe they should use pink balls.

 

I remember back in the 70's when Michigan ( I think) football, someone made a like comment when they ran the wishbone formation.  Announcer said something to the effect that you couldn't tell where the uniform, ball, and skin began or ended.

I was listening to Golic's show. They were discussing the reaction from the 49ers players and they were all positive about this guy. Sherman in particular said that they knew what he meant and that there isn't a problem.

It was never a racist comment. It was a dumb football comment that made no sense, but it was never racist. Glad to hear the 49er players, particularly the black players setting the record straight.
