"Thom Brennaman. I guess we Should talk about Thom Brennaman. To me. The whole situation is just sad. What Tom said was wrong and hurtful. Everyone agrees with that everyone I don't know. Thom Brennaman. I never met him, but I've only heard good things about him. Good community person, Good family man, and he made a mistake. And he apologized for the mistake and his apology or apologies. Plural seemed sincere to me. And now he's at least temporarily suspended from Red's broadcast. And I think NFL broadcast as well. But here's the question. You have to ask yourself. Should this mistake and his career. And because of what he said which again was wrong. Is he an irredeemable person? You know, when something like this happens, It's always interesting to me. To see how different people react to it. And along those lines, I read a couple of letters to the editor. That show how different people see this thing differently. And the real short and I just want to read them to you. Just as kind of an example of that. Okay? This one is titled and I've done this before a long time ago. The writer of the letter to the editor normally does not give it the title. It's usually an editor at the newspaper, but anyway This one is titled Homophobia Slur came from Brennan's heart. And this person who lives in Loveland. I'm not going to read his name, this person said. I am disgusted with the home of homophobic slur Thom Brennaman made last night during the Reds broadcast. What is more concerning Is his dad defending him quote That's not my son. Close quote, and that is what what Marty said. And then this letter goes on Newsflash, Marty. It's your son. He wasn't reading from a script written by the Reds or Fox News Course. They always gotta drag Fox news into it, Whether it as I do, they're not. Anyway, This guy this writer goes on and says it was a statement from his heart. Guess you don't know your son too Well, Tom, say goodbye to the Cincinnati Reds, Fox Sports and all of your lucrative paid endorsements. Enjoy your time. In the unemployment line. According to this guy who remain nameless from Loveland father is not supposed to and I guess isn't allowed to support his son. And you know you can talk about Thom Brennaman all you want, but that person, that guy from Loveland That's a person with a lot of hate in his heart. I feel sorry for not only Thom Brennaman. I feel sorry for that person. I mean so much bitterness. He may be the one that really needs the sensitivity training. Okay. Compare that letter to this one. This is a short one. Compare that letter to this one, which was printed. It was right below right below the one. I just read this one is title. Don't Judge Brennaman over derogatory comment. And this one says to all who were offended by what Thom Brennaman said on a hot Mike during Wednesday's pregame Red Show. There isn't anyone anywhere on the face of the Earth who hasn't said something derogatory either about another person, Not one, not one. Not one person. What was that, saying something along the lines off. Let he who is without sin. There. Go. Get over it. You know, I don't know about you. That's kind of where I come down on this. Everybody makes mistakes. And when you make one over a hot mic, the world knows about it, but everyone makes mistakes and everyone deserves a second chance. I got one many years ago, and I like to think I made the most of my second chance. And Thom Brennaman deserves a second chance, And I think if he is given one, I think he'll make the most of it too. Anyway. That's what I think about that. As always, I want to know what all of you think. 7491 7800. The big one are the phone numbers to call and make your thoughts now. And we've got to take a break, but we'll be back Mike Allen Saturday midday. Get Ken Brew today at 12 Noon on 700 wlw are you experienced in the heavy construction.

"In talking about the big store this morning. And of course, is the words of Thom Brennaman obviously caught on a open mic. Not intended for broadcast. But nonetheless, ah, and rightly so. I think some people are saying, you know if he's saying this behind the scenes, what also, they say, and We have no way of knowing I am not a big fan of the cancel culture and I think this is, you know, I don't think this is one of those extreme examples. I mentioned Al Franken earlier where he was You know, taking a picture of that? What? In the eighties and nineties, whatever it was, and it came back to haunt him entirely different because it's not acceptable. There should be a punishment. There should be a penalty for this, but There are many, many people special on social media. For what that's worth that want to see him lose his job forever or just lose his job. I don't know I can't go that far. Honestly, I think that there has to be certainly. Some introspection. There's got to be a price and penalty to pay for this what it is, I don't know. And maybe you do. And furthermore, too, if you are gay, lesbian, if you're proud community group, I'd love to hear your thoughts on this. Because mine matter a little bit. I think years carry a lot of weight. If you are gay or lesbian or bisexual, transgendered and how that fits into this whole thing to and what you heard, and I'm sure you heard the comment shortly sure to replay the comments. On DH. What Your reaction is that someone who asked to walk around and hear words like this used I did point out there was a time in America not long ago within the last 15 20 years to be sure where this word was throwing around all the time. You could say it on television could say it on radio. You could use it. Music, whatever in pop culture when you were younger college, for example, certainly that word. Yeah, friend. People are only use it all the time. But it wasn't meant as a I guess a derogatory term towards the people who really were. It was more about, you know, joking about guys use the word a lot more than think that then. Than women do. I would think Tiff. Potter's here. My producer wanted to chime in on this particular issue. Do you remember the word? Because you're you know, you're millennials was the word And for me that was around middle school is when that word was the guys would call unusual. It was guys would do it. Not did women ever use it. Um, it was a while ago, so I don't remember. But I definitely remember hearing the word. Yeah, today, you know, you know this has been the conversation and this was yesterday. We talked about this before. Even the Thom Brennaman thing even came up where you are. You would rather take ownership of being a murderer than a racist. Somebody just called me out and said, you're out of your mind. There's no way you'd rather because, but I think honestly, it seems to me and maybe it's a culture of pop culture thing or but but You know, in a very small segment society where it's like Some people see that was like a badge of honor. Debra Killing someone is another human being And what the hell? We'll think about this. What about this? Those people that we look at it as a badge of honor own it. They own and maybe they get a tattoo or they don't. But they don't hide from it. They don't run from it. They own it or most of them. When you hear someone use a racist or sexual comment, they don't own it. They say I'm not. I'm not that that was what culture was when I was growing up. And of course, you know that will take some contact that but I feel as if maybe if Tom had issued a statement that said, Wow, I never thought I'd be one of those people that would say something like that. But I guess I need a look in the mirror. And maybe you should own it. Maybe we not you. There's a lot of pointing, but maybe we should own it when we use those comments instead of because that's what the first reaction is. Oh, I'm not a racist like this. Where I promised like we used to use this as a kid. I said the word But like I'm not a racing. We'll just say You know what I am hoops like and police. Forgive me. Let me Let me see if I can work through this and you can give me some pointers and godless like I use the word and not as often as they used to when it was more popular, but it slipped out once alone. I did it and not thinking it hurts people. And I realized you know what I never put in that context, I thought, you know, you know, I mean, it's like I wasn't thinking and Such a steak own. Take on it. Oh, no, No. You said that the murderers they take ownership of who they've killed weird on tattoos. They rap about it in song. I said this word. And you know what? I must be a race. I didn't even know I'm a part of the problem. Let's see if I can fix this. So how does that How does that come off, then? Is not being insincere, because I guess the and maybe because I'm older, I'm jaded to is you look at him. Okay, Somebody's gonna polytechnical sensitivity training and you write a check to organizations and I look at that is like Do you really mean it or you paying somebody off? You know, I'm saying, how do you know It's sincere Because I think I really think deep down inside on Thomas. Yeah, it was. It was a one off and it wasn't Maybe. Sounds like I'm covering for him, But I'm not is that how do I know It's sincere when you actually do this right? Ray. And in that moment, it was probably blindsided. He I don't know if he came office since here in that message. I don't I didn't pick up sincerity. I mean, obviously, in the moment sometimes it is hard to be sincere. So I would have just said you're you're probably better off facing the lion head on and saying, You know what? Wow. Oops, I didn't realize I was a proud of that part of the problem. I am a racist because I am homophobe right where I thought, you know, it's like I'm using it, Not in a term that I thought it was, But just by using it, it makes me that And if you can take ownership and then say Okay, where do we go from here you at mean selfishly, You have a better job of salvaging your career and your social and personal life. Then you do have saying it wasn't me. I'm sorry, you know? Yeah, That's not who I am or but in that people make that argument will know that you said that that's that's who you are. Be self aware, be self aware. If you say something that I mean he's on a national platform, but be be self aware, like, Oh, my I can't believe I said that. Wow, I am a part of the problem is something else, too, also is the I'm going to guess this..

"Supposed to be once a week Knucklehead theater or somebody just as I'm really stupid, and it's caught on tape. This is the celebrity. Version of it. Thom Brennaman used to be comes broadcaster. Some people may remember that from a few years ago, Cam Brennaman is the son of Marty Brennaman, who was a gigantic hall of Fame broadcaster out of Cincinnati Thom Brennaman son following his footsteps. Head has had an amazing career 30 plus years he has been back in filling basically his dad shoes in Cincinnati for the last decade or so. He's also been on Fox Sports. He's done baseball for them. Football. For them is great broadcaster And I've always known him to be a gentleman. But it was a little something little goofy happened. Coming back from a break in the seventh inning in the first half of doubleheader yesterday. He apparently did not realize it is microphone was on and set. The captain is in the world. Read Live pregame show Presented by racing player Roofing boy. Ah, boy. So what he says there is. He uses a gay slur that starts with an F And then the word city like blank city to referred. I suppose it's a disparaging remark about a city at least that's what he thought it wass Or a ah or some group of individuals, Some group of things some. I don't know exactly. No, I've never heard the term before. Any continues on Does it really acknowledge what happened? And then He is told in the next game second part of the Devil header, So he's goingto be replaced in the booth, so he wants to make this apology. Nasty on those silly things off. Jim Day is going to be taking us the rest of the way through this game as Highland takes over on the mountain. I made a comment earlier tonight that I guess Went out over the year that I am deeply ashamed off. If I have hurt anyone out there. I can't tell you how much I say from the bottom of my heart. I'm so very, very sorry. I pride myself and think of myself as a A man of faith is there's a drive in a deep left field by Castano's. It will be a home run, and so that'll make it a for nothing. Morgan Oh, boy, I don't know if I would be putting on this headset again. I don't know if it's going to be for the Reds. I don't know if it's going to be from my bosses and Fox and we'll apologize for the people who sign my paychecks. For the Reds for Fox Sports Ohio for the people I work with for anybody that I've offended here tonight. I can't begin to tell you how deeply sorry I am. That is not who I am and never has been. And I'd like to think maybe I could have some people that they could back that up. I am very, very sorry. And I beg For your forgiveness. Jim. Dale, take you the rest of the way home. There was a party that seems heartfelt. Except he's calling the baseball game in the middle of a homerun call that is the imagine the worst timing for a home run ever during the middle of your apology. There was a sign right where the ball and I'm not making this up. It says Judgment free zone. Really? What's the video? 00, Iet's an ad for For Jim. I don't think you have to. Necessarily call the home run during the apology. You could do it afterwards. You finish up your apology. And then you could then say, because people will see it on television. People will have seen the home run. I mean, in radio, you have to, you probably would be required to call it. Calling the home right in like, I don't know. And it was, you know, generally not how you here home run call anyway, and he couldn't be animated. I don't understand The problem. Couldn't get on set in Vienna broadcast e about it because he had, you know, cycle down and you know, be sincere, either a motive, sincerity or fake it. Either way he had to do that. I pride myself and think of myself as a A man of faith is there's a drive in a deep left field by Castano's, it will be a home run. There you go. Yeah, eyes right. When the faith part comes out to? I don't know. Maybe this is sign from God. I don't know. VM. I don't I don't know if I don't know if you want to unnecessarily bring the faith peace in on this because that really has little to do with what the infraction was. Now. It actually sort of, depending on what your faith is a might take in a different direction there. So anyway, he makes his gay slur as related to with the word city. And I don't know what he meant way haven't really had an explanation of this have way. It's not like he's referring to a natural city. It's sort of like a like something that was looking at, like a group of things. Yeah, it's it's unclear, right? Whole things unclear. Yeah. Well ah! This. I find this to be one of those. Moments where there's going to be a cancellation, at least for a short period of time. I've noticed that a lot of people got canceled during the Me, too. Movement that weren't like the Criminal perpetrators or Harvey Weinstein and people like that people didn't quite raised to rise to that level. Some of them started. Come back. Louis CK is making his return. And Louis CK was accused of, you know, like glued acts in front of people who he invited up to his hotel room. That's a little different. Right now, and that's a whole other debts. That Z kind of interesting trip right there. For him. So one does wonder if you know People will make a a sup of the tongue out of the heart. Is an old broadcaster friend used to say I was just a slip of the tongue out of art as and that everything is to be just sort of taken away when you would say something like that. Not that In this moment, not in this part of American history. I get it. It's eight. Listen, he was dutiful in his apology had to do the right thing. I don't know if this is truly a career ender. But I think it's certainly a piece of dumb mastery of Ah, pretty high level because around an open microphone Around any kind of Mike from Kevin. What's the first thing you learn when you got into radio? How Mike situation. Is that what you're asking? Yeah. Yes. First thing you learn is don't say anything. Around a microphone. You don't want the whole world to hear, even if you assume the microphones are off because there's always a microbe could be turned on somewhere by somebody. In a broadcast situation. It is in a studio of is in a play by play Booth or whatever those air easily turned on remotely another plate by other people. Just sit down in the truck or in a control room or whatever. It is just an important thing to know. Very important thing to know..

"I'm such a wimp. Going to bed early. Actually, I was going and I was watching the whole Thom Brennaman thing kind of unfold on TV. It was so bizarre to watch that on a side note. But back to what you would ask me about the 12 page order from the Health Department. What? What? Give me the give me the cliff notes on this because it feels like Oh, we're being allowed to. We're being allowed to have sports and be Spectators. But it's kind of in disguise. Isn't it or or what is it? It really is and it It's It's kind of the same. All right. We've seen the movie before. You know, they get out in front of it and talk about how school they're gonna have control. Ladies, they're gonna have control and you know, it's not gonna be too bad and then you see Uh, you know, 15% capacity. I think they want Ah, small number of people there supporting the athletes. They have to be potted up, I guess is what they're going to say that I have to. Sit within a certain area. You know, stuff like officials can't use this thing was because apparently, that's a problem. Uh, who wants to be? Oh, by the way, who wants to use the same whistle? It's disgusting man. I can't believe they have to make a mandate. Stupid. They're like five things on the Dart board, and I think they just put a blindfold. You just Chuck the dart at it. It's like, Oh, man, we got the one with the with looking like that. You're so accurate. You're so accurate, but But then you know, the other one is wearing masks at home. Athletes are encouraged to wear masks. Oh, my Cobb. Odd really? And And then you know if there is any on dis is one eye I wrote the answer to the question down to go back and read it and understand it better because again, I'm not making fun of them. The governor's an attorney, He's very intentional with his words. But what I heard today was Hey, if somebody has myocarditis or symptoms of it, like what happens because You know that That's a pretty that's a pretty wide set of symptoms. And what we're hearing is that that athlete needs to go essentially two cardiologists and get a check up. And if One they have to, you know, scheduled getting and get it done in a timely manner and then pass and that's pretty disruptive. Now, obviously, if somebody's life is at risk, that makes sense, but the doctor he had on Tuesday, said. You know, there's a certain percentage 13% of know that they pointed Teo. But at the same time the doctor is saying very rare. By the way, very rare. We're not even worried about it. We're actually more worried about Athletes family practicing that hygiene distancing, so we're kind of getting a lot of mixed answers and again. It's It's like word salad. I just don't know. And until we get to that point where somebody has that Issue. I think that we're really going to see how it's going to be handled. And it sounded like the school district is gonna have a little bit of leeway there, too. But those are some of the bigger ones, you know. Overall sports are going to be ableto. I'm still not confident. Jack Windsor from WMD. Joining me W M FT TV, Joining me and hardest working investigative reporter in the business, these fringe cases or these These out like these cases that are on the very French. I'm tired of them being touted as the standard that that's what happens during these broadcasts. It seems like they talk about some fringe case that happened some crazy. That's not even close to the norm. That's another thing, Jack that that that hasn't wanted. What that just happens. At least once, every other one, If not everyone, but to further on. We're talking about the 12 page order from the Department of Health. Teams are going to be allowed to host 1500 fans or 15% of the fixed seated capacity. Whichever numbers lower indoor events.

I don't know if they're talking about an indoor event that could see 10,000 people and they're saying 300 are allowed in there, but that's based on this wording..

"Always entertaining every day. Thank you, Teo van and it's 10. O'clock lie, but you could catch it right now. You can watch it right right now. We want you to listen to this. And then after that Catch it. And also with us is my wife, Deborah, Former Channel nine reporter and anchor. Well filled in very, very long time They let me sit. Let me sit in the chair every now and again. But here we usually, of course, talk to Ah, Willy on Wednesdays. But since we weren't on yesterday, we've got Thursdays with Willie, proudly sponsored by Reese Powers and his team at Joseph Chevrolet. So, Willie, our guy, Tommy, you B has done stepped in it. You know any on and Katherine and Debbie. I don't know what to say. I made calls on and off the air. There's a fence like your dog died. There's a sense of Oh, my God. This is bad and it is and I want to know. Rehabilitation, a resurrection. Wrongful conduct, followed by acceptance, not of the conduct, but of a heartfelt apology means anything in today politically correct world thing. Ah, you've done it has done it. Maybe not. Katherine. I know Dev is done. It's done things on the air that you wish you could reach out and give it back when I'm back in here. And it was not intended. To be broadcast. That was doesn't mean it's not bad. It is that it's wrong. It's not a case of saying Cut the corners. It's okay. No, it's not okay to say that it's wrong to say that now the issue becomes All of us are sinners in a sense, one way or another broadcast crimes of one type or another, and I can't imagine the things you have done over the last 35. I know. Maybe Catherine is better and Deb's better than you and I, But men do wrong things more than women do wrong things because that's our character. Women are better than men. When something happens that is in reference to something not intended to be broadcast. Is that the same kind of a political crime on the air is when you intend to do something in this case. Hey, did not intend for that to be broadcast. He did not intend for people to hear it. On the other hand, when I was when I had Evan, No word on from 99 stands for news. I think Evan Millwork today was wonderful and saying what needs to occur to use this as an example in a positive way to move forward? I don't know, even know word. Well, maybe Catherine knows him better, but he's a good man. And he said, this is what has to happen and I have reached out. Directly and indirectly. To Tom to say, this is what a suggestion that could happen and maybe something's going to occur. Tio remedy the wrong and it was wrong. No one's defending it Now. What do you do, since we're all sinners? We Catholics. I don't do it much any more. Because I'm doing wrong. You go to confession. You admit wrongdoing, and then you get a penalty. You come back. I guess my concern is Fox Sports has taken him completely out of it. Talksport nationally, has said that he's done and what I read the read statement that talks about terrific And that's another concern. When it's horrific. That tells me it's almost non recoverable. I want this to be a learning moment and not the end of a great career Tom Brand, and that's what I want so well that we were talking about it earlier, and you and I have been doing this a long time, and we both know That it's much easier for a company to watch their hands of you. Then it is for them to put up with any possible repercussions. Bar forests by standing by you No. You know what I'm saying is that it's much easier for them. Do you know just cut bait, But, you know, but but Thom Brennaman started in this business. 34 years ago, and he's a relatively young man leads from our perspective. He's like 56 years old. He's been doing this his entire adult life. And the rules have fundamentally changed from what they were five years ago or three years ago or two years fundamentally changed. The humor cannot be there and he made a mistake. It's an error. It wasn't on the teleprompter. Somebody didn't put it. There was an off like a remark that has gotten him in trouble is not an official comment is not part of the Reds broadcast. It's something that was said off Mike relevant to, I think Blazing saddles, which is the movie then in which certain language was used. And certainly, but say, Well, I'm not buying that either. I'm not buying that excuse because I remember the comment from blazing saddles, and it's not as nothing to do with what Tom said. And it wasn't spoken like a joke, either. It wasn't spoken like I'm reciting, and that's that's the thing to Willie that bugs me. And I'll tell you straight up that if he would have been even laughing when he said it like it was some kind of a joke. Maybe that might have helped a little bit. The man he was straightforward. Now hit it and the tone The inflection wasn't like. Hey, this is funny, but we live in a different time. What was acceptable in the eighties nineties. What was acceptable 10 years ago are left nine years ago when Kobe Bryant Made a reference and then be official in a negative way. And then there was a technical foul called Owen. But we live in completely different time in social media where you're screwed. Nice. In fashion. That was not acceptable five years ago or 10 years ago, and now we live in a time where you have to be honor off, and it represents the Reds. What Tom did represent now. Fox Sports Icy Fox Sports nationalist Got him off all the National Football League's broadcast. And maintain the five and 10 years ago, this world was not a appropriate So I don't know when it was, but it's been a decade or longer. You remember back in the nineties, you and I especially got away with murder. I mean, not like this, but you know the last murder. I would hate it. I hate to hear the Dawn Patrol headed here. Some of the things I did on Friday night. And today standards. It's completely completely it's better than but we live. We understand the rules where they are and what is on and off the air. The inflection of his voice wasn't like Money or comic going was correct something different. And so what is their rehabilitation is their confession is the technology when I want to hear the red, a horrific And zero tolerance. You know the whole part of this, though to me, and I think we've gone through it. For example, with the mask debate is that we Can normalize new ways of thinking. People may have thought that This was acceptable 15 years ago where that was acceptable 10 years ago, whatever it may have been, it's OK to change your mind when you learn new things, So yeah, can he learned that this is not an acceptable way of speaking and referring to people and that it is to quote the Reds horrific. I think that you can know the question is, you know what happens with the punishment? Does the suspension turn into a termination? And that's not for me to decide or for any of us. Really. It's for the Reds in Fox Sports, Ohio on Fox Sports just to decide, but it's OK to change your manner of thinking something was OK. 20 years ago or six months ago. It's OK for it to be different now. Catherine can you imagine in the future of the first few times Mom is on a broadcast would read television fans be thinking about the game. Thinking about him in a way that he did not intend..

"I need I need to know more about Evan Forty eight. So I started reading and he's super interesting background wise is like I think. He's French and his I think he has some North African, one of his parents in north, African and One of his other parents is I, think is a Scandinavian place but anyway to the point of the Babe. Ruth. Stuff we're talking about and not necessarily knowing when you look at somebody I looked at seven forty eight and I want to know more about them and there are no English language profiles about this man but there's enough out there that I was like this dude hell interesting I want to know more about him. Yeah. I saw the other day. I gotta be honest I. Wasn't sure I thought I knew, and then I saw. But I thought I didn't. I was not positive and then pulled up a picture of it was like Yep could go either way. It was the craziest thing from two different angles in the same game within seconds and that's how I ended up in a rabbit hole. I was like Oh is he wait hold on? Yeah. But let me tell you this. We not sure watching this. Let me tell you where they know exactly what his get down is for rance in France I feel I can look at him and people will immediately start doing the math on that they draw new blondes very true I I went into an instagram to and approve of many of his choices. Leave it at that. So many of these places. Are Not together on anything being recorded you're not together. It's awesome united together on things record in interested as hell. But also close to the line I know that you are talented enough to get close those lines and never cross it. I'm not. Ready to Rico thing I just feel like we should be able to be confused together like I'm not getting out here with no judgment none of this stuff about accusing him of anything I just got questions. I'm not the person who sympathizes with people who like rail against canceled culture, and whatever that is I think canceled culture means a lot of different things in it falls under and they they all get put under the same umbrella. Some things under the umbrella that I'm like that's the problem. Some things I'm under the umbrella like yachtsman sensitive but I don't rail against it and I don't necessarily feel bad for people who say some things and get in trouble. But in this situation, I feel like over the course of this show, somebody could clip one or several other things that were said it here if fortunately for me, I'm not the money known I'm the end friend. I used to I used to mock my homeboys all the time like when we go to Vegas. Run this plane crash is GonNa be like Dominique Fox and friends. Lose their life. So this moment when aggregated our own member, pick this up and put quote out there about how Bomani Jones is going after Mike Rico is going to be like Bomani Jones. And friend and I'm not going to deal with the backlash I'm just infringed who was along for the ride. We'll wait a make me nervous. Absolute worst thing you could possibly said at this moment now, the Dow wonder what he's got a scrap twenty minutes game people what they want and need and deserve I hope that it is up I'm calling I gave you a game. I don't know why you think bad things happened into my career will help yours. It's not gonNA, help either of us. The best thing is both of us are supremely confident and have lots of different talent. So like best position cover from like, yeah. Yeah. I hear you an art. Yeah. My greatest salad however is the things that you can do with me I live at the marquee but I know but then it's rigo ain't nobody say bad about Rico. Is this I just don't know how this happened and nobody knows how it happened like it's kind of like whenever I don't know if you were listening when I was trying to figure out what race Dave Randall was. Daybreak. Be Lsu defensive coordinator is now the head coach at Baylor and I could not with my eyes get a great answer on what racy was and I kept calling people and nobody knew. I was calling the Lsu dudes nobody knew. What had? I think it might be Polynesian like nobody had an answer because Latino is Latino but Latinos a so rare. A Lotta spaces in college sports but nobody had any idea in everybody was curious I get on twitter by David Random. So does anybody know that's all I'd say and it will be all these white folks in the SEC Rouge, we've been trying to figure this out for three years like nobody wants to talk about it. Nobody wants to ask about it.

"In DC, where I am I, there are some fans who was pushing back when a lot of fans. But there are some fans was pushing back. I remember seeing on the local news there was a guy who just had. got. His. Whole truck skinned. Pardon, the Pun but I think that's a proper terminology. We get like all of them stickers and you put him on a car. He got a whole new skin put on his truck that match the old Washington football team logo, and he was on the news talking about heat on Su. He wants all his money back because they changed the name and now his truck has no more value as a black fan of plenty of black fans around here who somehow are not able to connect. Their own struggles with how this could be offensive to another group. Now man, that's always the worst right with that because a lot of leg fans that will all me about it when their name change they mad at me like I'm the one who did something wrong why are you? Still go ru four. Different Name and you still go ru four. Yeah. So that leads me to the question why you rooting for him in the first place that is Washington fans black fans of the Washington team that is such a complex discussion on. So many levels right because I. I've contended that the underrated story of the cowboys and what used to be called Redskins as a robbery is the fact that that's a robbery in the city and a big part of why it's a rivalry in the city is all the black people who refused route forming their root for the cowboys. Yeah. Absolutely fair. There's a lot of black cowboys fans in this area. Also, somewhat inexplicable, but you just hop on the best team at that point like I don't know or is it just the fact that they were rivals of Washington? Is that why they happen guess every city probably has a ton of cowboys fans. Let's say black people are the cowboys everywhere right and I was not around for when this happened. So I've been curious as to how exactly like was it really that they was just so flashy and fly with it in the seventies that it being carried over like my daddy I'm not I mean nowadays place they didn't have a football team, but like he tells the iceberg broke his heart. Is Bowl Ziebel's heartbreaking. Because he was a Dallas Cowboys, Fans Black Folks Everywhere Are Dallas cowboys fans if you were in Washington and your local team is the official team races, which is what they were through the nineteen sixties. The of. Lorraine's logo aside. They could have been the Washington wildcats and they still would have been the official team racism at the time. So like I root for of Texas, which has very similar legacy. raised. But I'm at age that was never really liked consistent and I wasn't from texts like I was from Texas probably wouldn't root for 'cause my day I mean like my dad was from Texas. That's what I mean like I've checks but I got my dad was rejected I probably wouldn't rule for because he'd been ruin against them and then I'd jumped on board. But at some point, a lot of black folks in the city they got down with them I mean it's your local team. I, get it everybody wants to put off for the Crib but whole budget folks is like now we're not doing that kind of saying well University of Maryland for similar reasons, right? Right. I mean that's still doesn't and I guess you can't answer this question. But like why do you root for the team? It's probably different for a lot of people for most people. It's like some civic pride like that's the name of the city that I'm from, and then maybe there's a history of relationship that you have grown up watching this team with your family whatever like there is some emotional ties, no one has ever with the exception of the cliche about the. Secretary in office picking the final four based on mascots like no point in the history of anything if anyone become a fan of a team because of the mascots of Wildwood fandom be threatened by the change of a guy now get doug it just doesn't make sense unless you just one of those things where it's just like you WanNa you WANNA cover up your racism by saying it just means something to me. Yeah. But I'm like how we races against the natives. Beef, do we have with them? In fact, we got decades decades maybe even centuries of black life in America tried to claim that we got some blood from them. I mean I. Don't know I'm looking at them. You might you have you got one of them DNA tests. It is entirely possible I look at people Baba's lineage and I'm like, yeah that could probably happen I. didn't ask about that. I've never everybody would be so curious about where they came from to be here now. Yeah. Don't do it. Now they use they hand those on their data over the law enforcement which yeah, don't don't you do it. I'M GONNA. Let my brother did I was so mad I'm like. Okay never committed no crops. Well, you can do it now because once they got brothers. Yeah. No, that's. All. Done. By days, coming crabs over. What companies just got buffalo I five billion dollars by the way. By billion billion. How did y'all fall this like I just don't understand how it is that people fail for this and some of them getting answers they don't want to tell nobody about like I. Don't think there's been nearly enough discussion about this. We don't hear nearly enough about people getting a test back. If Y foles find announced, got some black in them that they were not aware of I am positive y'all A. All coming back, Irish Italian and English right it all coming back. Some of Y'all are getting back full percent. You know what? I'm saying maybe I'm wrong but I feel like that's something that they would love to roll out like there is nobody there is no demographic of white people like if you're the liberal white person like you would be proud I feel like to roll out for like I got. I got ten percent if you're. If you're conservative white person I feel like you would love to screen shot that thing. So when you say something racist and somebody say you'd be racist six percent from Angola baby. Yes, it is except. You're saying though you saying you look at it as four point, six percent from Angola therefore, I'm allowed to say this where no no no. What that says is four percent four point six percent from Angola. y'All go say about me. And that is that is that is the house. Watson a lot or episode about a dude who got caught past you ever seen how? Bad. Do Pass it. It was it was a fascinating episode because they got the perfect dude right? Like he absolutely looked like he'd be a white man if you did not ask and then you look closer, it'd be like Oh look at that nodes, right? Okay. You was out here passing and so the plot was. Yes. So he he and his new. Yes. But let me say it is right now about Babe Ruth. Says has been brought up because I think the people think that the Homie Miro like invented this right like Beirut Dominican thing no. That was a long standing question about Babe Ruth being black. Day and age we look at a picture of Babe Ruth and we're like, okay, that's a white man. But if I showed you a picture of people that were considered to be black in Babe Ruth's Day. Babe Ruth is black according like I at least two to the is. He got the features. Route passing back when they added more discerning I've seen. Like who they had to be somebody like the red sox or the Yankees. The way we talked about the gay dudes like. This. The more hits your good man we have. Any. Imagine if he didn't come out like. Thirty five after already to hold run king and everything else and it came out like definitively the Babe Ruth was black like somebody did some expose..

Community in Cincinnati Kansas City and all over the country, the reds embrace as zero tolerance policy for bias or discrimination of any kind which truly sorry he's done. He's dead. He's over he's fifty six and he's been doing this since he was a kid and his career is over but. And it's one of those cases where you Blamed for being such a fool. What's he saying that for? I mean what? The Hell is going your project for saying the F Word Sandy The F. Word what made sing effort in the. Our Gang Consultant Alex Reema has he. Sure Alex you know he'll. Right. He'll bright about this for someone Forbes or Boston may or ore out sports or somebody one of his many many jobs. But at the same time with this guy and I have no sympathy I don't know. But I'm in a he he he's a full I'm sure as plenty of money I. Think it's time that he you know moves on with his life because he's never gonNA recover. This is like an Al Campinas moment where you never see him again. At the same time, the other day I. Love. You saw this one from yearly the cancel culture file in a file whole file herewith storage just pop up every day the canceled culture file. Mark Grace Remember, McRae. The basement basement lefty Whatever color commentator? For the for the cubs assume what's teams Marcus with assume soon as the cubs or is he played with the diamondbacks to I? Don't WANNA say check but he was just shooting the breeze in the booth and he referred to his wife Ding Bat. Now, people don't have the Right who doesn't think they're ex-wife's at Ding bet but if people don't know. A Ding bed is a term that archie bunker used to describe edith, and by the way it was term of endearment. If. You remember he would you know loved his wife and he called her thing bet He apologized for using that term, they suspend their for five games He's also fifty six by the way suspended by Marquee sports for five games for calling. And he apologized for calling his. Ex Wife a Ding Bat. What if she is wouldn't that be good defense would be I mean I how I didn't even know that it's a bad word Ding Bat. That's like a word I would use if I was censoring myself. Being. Idiotic. He says it's It's early afternoon in my ex wife I'm going to go archie bunker on you guys a little bit and cholera Ding Bat he said so eventually I archie bunker. You get in trouble or. Yeah, you get suspended for how long is games? You can save for calling ex wife, a ding bet. which is kind of silly the. It's kind of silly. It's totally silly. But I guess you gotTa be more careful and he'll survive and laugh it off unlike Thom Brennaman who will never laugh it off the you know what's Thom. Brennaman right now is probably hasn't slept a minute he's probably throwing up he's probably sick. He's never going to recover from this because he made one stupid off the cuff homophobic remark in the booth. And I guess. He's GonNa get what's coming to him. You know, no, no sympathy form but his life is over those producers. By the way I mean you got nothing going on in the Bush arguing in the control room it's probably barely empty I. Mean I think they have a little bit of focus to not air something like there to let the guy know that he's on the air at the moment. So it's the delay..

We talked about it yesterday they don't allow mega hats or blue lives matter. But they do allow black lives matter and they changed the policy soon as trump said, don't buy Goodyear I don't think he's changes tune yet, but he will it's a it's obviously a good American company big. American. Company doesn't want to destroy them the worst example of the canceled culture was that announcer Sacramento lost his job Sacramento Kings play by play guy because he said all lives matter he got fired because he said all lives matter and since then there's been a few announces yesterday, we talked about the play by the. Play by play guy. Charlotte. Hornets this dope who accidentally tweeted the N. Word was talking about a game. He meant to T- allegedly meant to type nuggets any typed. Word. Bog. The Keyboard Jerry the I is next to the you right and the tea is next to the are it's literally just you replace those two letters. At the same time what kind of phone autocorrect to the N.

Interesting I I have a hard time believing that some guy actually just maliciously and twenty twenty. I'm going to tweet the N. word this go over well, but you don't it. That's work in today's you know with the mob, they don't care if it's innocent mistake this still destroy you and he suspended. I. Don't know if he survives but let me tell you who will not survive and it's a big big name Thom Brennaman Cincinnati reds announcer a may He's been a major league announcer for thirty three years. He's a big I've heard his voice before I recognize a big name in the business and he's familiar name announcers does National Games? He's a huge. He's familiar because he does NFL Fox Games. That's how people mostly and but he does national baseball to does he do playoffs He's been around forever. And he and He was on the broadcast and thought he was the which is remarkably guy's been around for thirty something years and he's so any. So careless as to say something during a break thinking that the Mike was not live it was and what he did on this At this moment he committed professional suicide, you WanNa hear a guy kill his own career in one quick moment one. Quick mindless moment check can do you WanNa play it dig at Strip. Let's play what Thom Brennaman said on a live Mike and then we will play you his apology which was Saag to. ME, back, it up on. Fag capitalism the worth could you hear that? Could your heart it? Could be he has no defense. He can't say type the wrong button he can't say how might. he can't say they took it out of context of the guy you know and he has piano said the tennis player was using guerrilla tactics and they use the. Accused him of using the other guerrilla word and he ended up suing and winning but there's usually some defense for this kind of thing guy saying it's not what he said was taken out of context, Thom Brennaman a huge name in the business. Just pissed away his whole career at break. I. Talking about a city that they're going to what city they don't say what city are they going to San Francisco it's gotta be. It's gotta be your maybe. Check the red. Red's. We can knock off Omaha off the list Tulsa the MLB goes to Omaha but. I assume they were heading there and he was talking about the city. Anyway he said that on a hot Mike and men in the feeling you had when someone told him that went out over the air and that is now viral So he is. So I don't know how many innings later they the the apology came, and then he laughed. And said later that he just is his career might be over and he's right is career is over I'm not sure how you recover from this. Here's. This is one of the great on air where we're GONNA plant a set when you're done by. This is one of the great on air apology I've ever heard actually. is fantastic. This is during the game. He says this the word breaks ruins finding out he's been doing major league as for thirty three years has been with Fox sports for twenty seven years doing baseball and football. For this one mindless Adriatic moment where he clearly used that word which makes any clearly comfortable using that word. So there is no recovering from this, but he tried he made an apology later in the game. Let's hear that day.
