    It's amazing that professional broadcasters get caught by the 'hot mic' so often. Just assume it's on dumbfucks.

    So bad, and he has no "out" excuse. Can't even say it was said jokingly, didn't know it offended people, or any of the other lame excuses. That was clearly derogatory in it's use.

    But it's not

    He's still on air right? The Reds probably suspend him a game or two

    Good. He's actually a jackass in real life. I'm surprised it took this long for him to show it to the world.

    I've listened to him call about 100 Lions games at this point. He's shown how much of a jackass he is in just about every one of them.

    My kid is in the same grade in the same league as one of his, and I've sat near him at a couple sporting events. He's a nasty, arrogant, snobbish prick.
