A guy named Furman involved with racist comments?

2006-11-02 12:28:53 PM  
Furman. Furman. The man's a racist. What is he, the Fuhrer? German? Furman. German.
2006-11-02 12:29:28 PM  
I'm in Cinci, and I hadn't heard this. It's all well and good. Andy was an arrogant New York guy with no real sports knowledge.

/Strange reason to fire him though.

You need to watch more Chappelle's Show.

Also, TJ's a standup guy. Fukc you furball!

How bout I agree to pretend I got your joke. Then I won't have to watch that.

I wonder which of the two will get greenlit?

Damnit! Another wasted 30 minutes.

If I could f--- myself I'd never leave the house.

I believe there is a surgery that can at least get you started down that road.

Exactly. After all of the other crazy crap he supposedly did this is what does him in?
2006-11-02 01:05:41 PM  
Seems like a dumb reason to fire soemone... though it probably isn't smart to go making accusations like that, unless you have some meat. At least if you're white.

TJ from all I've heard is a cool guy.
2006-11-02 01:26:20 PM  

My friend works at a video game company in Cincinnati and got to meet TJ. Lucky bastage.

Racial issues in Cincinnati? Who'd of thought?
2006-11-02 04:15:38 PM  
The station has led the Cincinnati-area ratings for more than six years, according to the paper.

Now, is there really such a thing as "too far" when you're #1?
2006-11-02 04:42:35 PM  
Being in Cinci, this may be another Clear Channel ratings hoax. Cunningham has been fired / hired xx times.

Furman running his mouth? A Bengal running his mouth?

They need to go have a drink on Eric Steinbach's boat with Chris Henry and work it out.
Maybe the Furball can do Raider games.

Who'd HAVE thought.

My problem with sports talk radio is that too often they're house men who kiss the ass of athletes (see just about anyone on ESPN Radio), or they're intentionally abrasive and just trash everyone. It's hard to find someone who does strike that balance of being willing to criticize when appropriate, but doesn't go too far and just trash for the sake of trashing.

I think that Tony Kornheiser's radio show did this about as well as anyone. Too bad ESPN is wasting him on MNF now.
2006-11-02 06:21:47 PM  

I don't think being a grammar nazi excuses the fact that you completely missed the joke...
2006-11-02 08:40:23 PM  
i hate TJ Houshmandzadeh.

not for the color of his skin.

for the color of his hat.

/'ere we go stillers
//souunds kinda hollow this year, doesn't it?
2006-11-03 01:00:18 AM  
Well, since there's no possible way a Nubian Prince could say something racist it's a good thing Furman was fired.

I thought that he was Indian. From India. Is Les Nesman still on the job?

/As God as my witness, I thought turkeys could fly.
