    Yes, the disdain in his voice is obvious.

    Is it possible that Thom doesn't know? I would think not given how much he is addicted to the internet during games...

    Actually, **** that, I'm not sorry. It's exactly what you did. You only worried about the Reds, his family, and Thom himself.
    I thought the same, he definitely was making Thom a sympathetic figure in his first post. But I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt based on his second post that it was just poorly worded.

    I'm sure Marty is no saint, but it is a shame that the story of having his son follow in his footsteps worked out so poorly.

    He seems distracted. Almost missed the Winker HR call, probably looking at his phone.

    It was a different time and Marty could get away with it. Itís no excuse but Thom has to know better.

    Maybe 5-10 years ago he might have gotten off with a wrist slap suspension and “heartfelt” apology. But times have changed. I don’t see him staying on.
    Itís not the thing you fling, itís the fling itself.

    Watching this game is like when you were a kid and you did something horribly wrong, and your mom said “Just wait til your father gets home!”

    And you have.... to.... wait..

    Thom is now cancelled.

    Aside from the Reds, how will this affect his NFL work? And will he still be welcomed with open arms at the Dilly Delly in Mariemont

    you have obviously never worked in TV. no way the producer caught that or authorized that. it was all thom. we're not talking about a recorded show that went through the process of editing. this is a live broadcast.

    I’m guessing this wasn’t his first time saying that word while at work.
