I didn't make any accusations...

Wow...Your assumptions are mindboggling...

ESPN drugs the water fountains with time-release nanotech that makes its victims spout strange stuff on a news channel once in a while.

Olbermann called Bush Hitler? Really? Funny that you keep posting "what if it happened to the other side" posts because anytime someone compares the last administration we get B B B Bush. Remember when the NFL tried Rush Limbaugh and then Dennis Miller? What a couple of bad ideas those were. The NFL management is mostly republican by the looks of it, while the players are probably mostly lefties. Probably best to keep football from becoming a political football.

Not nearly as mindboggling as your disingenuous inferences.

Can you imagine companies and media outlet punishing direct and indirect employees for comparing Bush to Hitler, Gov. Walker to Hitler, and the Tea Party and Republicans in toto to nazis????....We'd have about 22 hours of dead air across all networks...

(No...This is NOT a free speech issue...ESPN is a private company and congress "passed no law" for ESPN to force this decision...They did it on their own and have every right to)...
HW jr is the voice of Football and his voice is very recognizable. Like the Chixie Dicks, I fear he will learn a hard lesson here.

One would think that celebrities, though heard by many, really should have learned by now they are an expendable commodity.

Make your music. Keep your trap shut on politics if you don't want to damage your fan base.

True, it was ESPN's right to can him. But they are also damaging themselves by doing so. Insert "can and should' statement here.

Do you have an opinion on whether or not ESPN should've exercised their right?...
ESPN had a brand to protect here fellas.........Hello.....

Excuse me Red, there is a hell of a lot of money on the line here.......


Jack-ass employee runs his dumb-ass mouth about his political ignorant opinion and the company that employs him weighs his positives vs. his negatives just like any other non-union company........


Guess what, Hank had his say and so did ESPN.......



......and Hank didn't come out on the employed end of it.....


Life is all about choices, chose well.........

People are so frickin' stupid it amazes me. He was talking about the President and Boehner going golfing together and compared them to Hitler and Netanyahu. It was creating an analogy of two polar opposite playing golf together, not saying that Obama was Hitler. You could make the same idiotic case that he compared Boehner to Hitler based on what he said. But the "All conservtives hate Obama so we have to create any drama we can to prove it." crowd automatically jumped to REALLY stupid conclusion. Listen to the interview (and yeah, Hank was definitely intoxicated) and you'll hear that he's not comparing Pres. Obama to Hitler, but rather comparing the divide between Hitler and Netanyahu to the divide between Pres. Obama and Boehner.

Nice try.

If there was any question in my mind as to what he really meant, it went out the window with this........


When asked on Fox to explain his analogy.....

Williams said Obama and Vice President Biden are "the enemy."
