BILLY PACKER FINALLY OUT AT CBS?

BILLY PACKER USES TERM “FAG OUT” WITH CHARLIE ROSE

Awful Announcing (and SPORTSbyBROOKS) has the story that Billy Packer may finally be on his way out at CBS. Awful Announcing, in fact, is calling for Packer’s ouster,

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Billy Packer is a cancer to CBS. The guy has called a black player a monkey, made sexist remarks on-air about a female player, used the term fag during an on-air interview, and even told a woman worker at Cameron Indoor Stadium, “Since when do we let women control who gets into a men’s basketball game? Why don’t you go find a women’s game to let people into?” Every single time CBS defends the guy and for what?

All of the sexist, racist and idiotic remarks take a backseat to the guy losing the network millions of dollars. Either way…..it’s time to make the move CBS.

As AA points out, all of Packer’s racist and sexist remarks and boorish behavior never got him in trouble with the network. What did? Apparently a sponsor complained about Packer LITERALLY telling fans to “turn off” the Kansas/North Carolina game. (North Carolina eventually cut the Kansas lead to four points before losing.)
Media critic Bob Raissman of the New York Daily News points out,

CBS is paying $6 billion for the right to air the tourney over the life of its contract with the NCAA. From a business perspective, telling viewers to turn off the TV is not a great idea, especially in a soft advertising market.

NICE RECOVERY

Nice to see North Carolina basketball coach, Roy Williams has recovered from his team’s loss in the NCAA tournament!

MCCAIN MARCH MADNESS

C’mon!

Every year John McCain runs a bracket contest on his website. He even gives away prizes.

You can win a lovely McCain fleece:

Or this stylish hat:

All by making college basketball picks on Senator McCain’s website.

This is the same Senator McCain who once supported a government ban on college sports betting. Even in Las Vegas.

If anybody else did this they would be sued and served a cease and desist by the NCAA and CBS.

This year, not only does Senator McCain get to benefit POLITICALLY off the backs of amateur college athletes, but he can also benefit FINANCIALLY as well. After all, he’s now running for president so he can actually use this contest to solicit campaign contributions.

So much for campaign finance reform!

I would like ANYONE to look at the ad below and explain to me how John McCain is allowed to get away with this.

This is NOT a Republican or Democrat issue. It’s right and wrong. In this instance, McCain is being a hypocrite.
