    Re: The Thom Brennaman haters might get their wish......

    Is Thom just constantly cutting InfoWars promos during the commercial breaks? Is that why he's always so unpleasant on the broadcasts? Is that why he gets so many basic facts incorrect?

    If he's saying it on the air his family has heard it plenty. Nothing sad about an obviously terrible person being shown for what they are.

    Gotta be getting pretty awkward in the booth right now, right? People around him, in real-time, have to be starting to feel this breaking around them.

    Great point.
    His dad got caught saying a few curse words after the microphone was cut back on after a commercial
    But his curse words were not targeting a specific group, so he got away with it.
    Looks like they are birds of a feather. I am sure his kids have a potty mouth too.

    Or think about folks in the LGBT community who put up with this garbage their whole lives.

    We all use curse words so I think we can understand. Most of us (I hope) don't use the F word like he did...

    Literally the least you can ask for is no slurs on the broadcast

    I mean, maybe? Even if that’s the case I don’t know what’s funny about it.

    I’m not shedding a tear for Thom. I’m expressing sadness that this happened, not excusing the behavior whatsoever.

    I'm surprised he'll be doing the second game of the double header. I'd be pulling Thom asap and having Day & Welsh do the game.

    I hope the Reds make the right decision. Historically marginalized populations don't need to be degraded during a ball game broadcast.

    Re: The Thom Brennaman haters might get their wish......

    now, in fairness, if thom was cursing at the reds for being underachievers and bad at baseball, fair game.

    but a homophopic slur? i just don't get it.

    Believe me, I am. I have a sibling and uncles who belong to the LGBT community. My sibling is also a Reds fan. Of course it bothered me to think he may be watching.

    The whole situation is sad. Sad for those the word attacks, sad for the fan base that heard it uttered, the organization that employs him, and yes, even the idiot’s family who I bet are embarrassed and ashamed of it.
