    Thom Brennaman suspended for on-air comments

    I heard it live and people are talking about it on Twitter. As they came back from break Thom referred to some place "one of the fag capitals of the world"

    Here's the clip

    That’s pretty unambiguous. Hope they give him his pink slip.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    I would think that ends his tenure with the Reds.

    He sounded so disgusted, lol. Will be very satisfying to see him gone.

    Wow. I'm actually surprised Jim Day isn't calling game two. There's no BSing your way out of that one. All for a slur that most decent people stopped using after they turn 10, if they ever used it at all.

    Wow. Not a big fan of Thom by any means, but you don’t want to see it end like this. Not for the organization, not for him, not for his family. Think about how his kids will feel when they hear that. Just too bad.

    A big part of me wants so badly for this to be a massive misunderstanding. I just don’t see how it can be.
