I've been getting more and more fed up with ESPN for a while, from Chris Bermans Retard Act to the complete dumbing down of everything from pre-game shows to their own brand of "original" tripe programming.
Well, this thing with Rush Limbaugh is simply the last straw, he was brought in to state OPINIONS, he stated his OPINION, and he "resigns" 3 days later? Give me a break. What ever happened to Freedom of Expression in this country? Does that only go 100% if you're a minority? He said what he said being critical of the MEDIA, NOT McNabb, and anyone who doesn't understand that, from McNabb himself all the way to idiot posters here, are simply stupid. Did Tom Jackson and Michael Irvin have a problem with what he said, or did they "develop" a problem with it when they were TOLD TO by Jesse Jackson etc., or were they just to STUPID to even comprehend what the man was saying?
Where was the outcry and demands for resignation when that MORON Dusty Baker stated his ridiculous opinion on White Ballplayers "not being as good in the heat" as blacks? Thats a far more blatantly RACIST statement, but there were ZERO calls for his resignation, just, "Oh, that rascal Dusty, hes so funny..."
I'm just so tired of it all. I also think its PATHETIC how the oh so "TOLERANT" liberals are revelling in Rushs apparent addiction to painkillers. If its some Hollywood Liberal or Brett Favre, its "Oh, how sad. He needs therapy and support" for his condition, but when its someone you disagree with, its, "Good, I hope his life is ruined". Tolerant my ass. Kinda like how the Libs keep telling us its wrong to speak unkindly toward the "Peacefull people of Islam", but anyone who worships God or is religious in any way here in the U.S. is a "religious Zealot, Right-Wing Fundamentalist, or Ignorant Hillbilly". We're going to ****ing hell in a handbasket, but as long as Tim Robbins is happy, God is exiled from all U.S. Public areas and Rush goes to jail, we're OK...
In either event, I am done HERE AND FOREVER watching ANY product of ESPN. Its either Fox Sports, the 'net or a newspaper from here on out.
