Pardon The Suspension

with 3 comments

So Tony Kornheiser was on his radio show and said some not-so-nice things about ESPN cohorts.

The gasbags behind the mikes at ESPN, and ESPN properties such as ESPN-1050, shout on many subjects. The recent controversy involving PTI co-conspirator Tony Kornheiser and Clown Communinty College anchor Hannah Storm is not one of them.

When Big Brother Bristol muzzles the talkies, they stay muzzled. Or maybe the yakkers know where not to tread.

When ESPN bosses don’t like what’s coming out of Kornheiser’s mouth, they simply suspend him for a couple of weeks. This ain’t the first time he was temporarily deep-sixed.

In case you were smart enough to ignore this latest alleged controversy, Kornheiser was busted after auditioning for the next Fashion Week, commenting on an outfit worn by Storm. Kornheiser, whose wardrobe can best be described as Retro Schlubby, called Storm’s threads “horrifying.”

“She’s got on red go-go boots and a Catholic-school plaid skirt,” Kornheiser said. “Way too short for somebody in her 40s.”

There was also a joke about Chris Berman. Why type it out when it’s available online…

And of course ESPN has replaced Tony with Dan LeBa-retard on Pardon the Interruption. This of course begs the question: Who is getting punished here — Tony or the audience?

If he has the financial means to leave that show, I hope Tony goes somewhere else and spends the rest of his days ragging on ESPN. What a bunch of bitches. In addition, if ANYONE on the Boo-Yah Network makes fun of any person out there, I hope the person offended launches a crusade of threatened lawsuits and other gibber gabber until ESPN passes a policy forbidding ridicule of ANYONE. When one person/topic is deemed “out of bounds,” EVERY person/topic should be deemed “out of bounds.”

  1. As someone who listens to Tony’s show everyday I’ve been following this pretty closely. It’s a total joke, and I tend to believe the theory that says the suspension is really about the Berman bashing. Apparently his contract is up soon and ESPN is worried he might leave. Berman’s a douche, but now I really hope he leaves ESPN just to see them squirm.

    Oh and as others have pointed out when Mike Golic slammed the shit out of ESPN and Kornheiser when Tony got the MNF job instead of him that was a-ok, but pointing out correctly that Hannah Storm’s outfit was hideous is a no-no.

    The fact that we get Le batard for two weeks on PTI isn’t even what really bugs me, it’s that now Tony has too be super cautious with what he says on even his Radio show and as a result it’s not going to be quite as good.

  2. I remember Golic’s comments after the first ESPN MNF regular-season game, and Tony got all butthurt about them.

    Do you remember Mark Madden’s comments about Ted Kennedy that got him fired from my local ESPN radio affiliate? Mark’s back on another station and rags on ESPN all the time. I love it.

    • I do remember that, but due to his wrestling days I just can’t support anything Madden says. Oh sure I endorse slamming ESPN, but Madden earned a life time of hate from me that will never be erased.
