I think it's funny that he's got five days off because of this. He made a mistake, yes, and you can't use that word on TV, but it's just a word. Did it warp minds? Is somebody that fragile that they can't take hearing a word like that? He apologized, and he sounded sincere, so move on. Maybe give him one day off, but five? Give me a break.

Eh, I don't think there was anything wrong with him getting suspended. If he dropped the f-bomb because of some crazy play or because something happened in the booth and it just slipped then that's one thing, but he started swearing because he messed up a line? You have to be a lot more composed than that to be doing a live broadcast, I got no problem with giving him 5 days to send a message to be more careful.

He thought they were taping a segment to be played during the pre-game.

Maybe, but that alone is enough to get fired let alone suspended if his name wasn't Bert Blyleven.

Yea, he's totally lucky here. I saw a San Diego news anchor get fired for doing the same thing. That was rough.

No big deal. It was an understandable screw-up.

Yes, the attention paid to this specific incident so far is over the top, but this isn't an obsession with just any athlete.
