Must not mention that a woman is attractive?

A US sports network has issued an apology for comments made by one of its commentators during a championship college football match on Tuesday.

Veteran ESPN commentator Brent Musburger sparked controversy in the US after the camera homed in on the girlfriend of star Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron - a former Miss Alabama.

The 73-year-old took a fancy to the beauty, with his co-commentator joining in.

"We always try to capture interesting storylines and the relationship between an Auburn grad who is Miss Alabama and the current Alabama quarterback certainly met that test. However, we apologize that the commentary in this instance went too far and Brent understands that," ESPN's statement read.


What he said:

"You see that lovely lady there, she does go to Auburn, but she's also Miss Alabama and that's AJ McCarron's girlfriend. You quarterbacks, you get all the good looking women. What a beautiful woman. Wow."


If natural reactions like that are demonized we are in a sick society.

It was a cisgendered, heteronormative comment, so therefore liberals went into prancing hissy fits. Had the commenter been gay, the player gay and with a boyfriend beign commenting on, it would have been a proud moment for diversity, and anyone offended is a bigot.

It wasn't that he mentioned that she was attractive. He went on and on, going back several times to her. He's nothing but a leecherous, dirty old man.

I happened to be watching the game and saw the so-called "incident". All he said was that she's a beautiful woman. Now, i can see that comment upsetting the fat, smelly, lesbian activists. They get very uptight anytime a man says something about a woman, even if it's a compliment, as in this case.

Do you know how much time, effort, and money is spent by her sponsers making her look that good? Isn't that the type of comment they want for her?

"Political correctness is a far greater threat to our freedom and liberty than is terrorism..."

Um,.... Anon 2:36, that would be, "lecherous", not "leecherous".

If she doesn't have a problem with what he said, (and she said she doesn't) then why is it anyone else's business.

Actually, the whole incident was created by the maggotts of the media.

Just another thing for the professionally offended to get upset about.
