POLL: Brent Musburger's comments about Katherine Webb
« on: January 09, 2013, 04:38:56 PM »
Lots of controversy over the comments made during the 2013 BCS Championship game by announcer Brent Musburger regarding Katherine Webb, AJ McCarron's girlfriend.  Do you think those comments were "dirty old man" comments or not?

Here's a link to a simple, two-choice poll that I posted that you can vote in.  It includes the comments in case you missed them.

American blood spilled to protect the freedom and peace of people all over the world.  320,000 USA casualties in WWI, 1,076,000 USA casualties in WWII, 128,000 USA casualties in the Korean War, 211,000 casualties in the Vietnam "conflict", 57,000 USA casualties in "War on Terror".  Benghazi, Libya, 13 USA casualties. These figures don't include 70,000 MIA.  But, the leaders of one political party of the United States of America continue to make the statement..."What difference does it make?".

"We can't expect the American People to jump from Capitalism to Communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of Socialism, until they awaken one day to find that they have Communism."..."The press is our chief ideological weapon." - Nikita Khrushchev

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I didn’t watch the game (remember…Wolverines keeping the economy going and all) but I looked up the clip after your post here.  All I can say is:  you got to be kidding me!  Why do people waste time and energy on such trivial stuff.  Cut Brent some slack.  Can’t anybody appreciate a complement these days?  This is another non news item.

Yes there is much talk about those comments, however they all choose to not say a word about Kathy Griffin when she went down and kissed Anderson Cooper's crotch repeatedly during the Ball Drop on New Years.

Jmblakeney, I didn’t see that either, but I do find just about everything about Kathy Griffin disgusting.  Why they give her sick sense of humor any airtime is beyond me.   

Cut Bret some slack and permanently ban Griffin from TV…please!
