Thom Brenneman says he wants more fans to air them again.
The former MLB and NFL play-by-player caught up with Mike, who slammed anti-gay mockery last year, eventually resigning from the TV voice of the Cincinnati Reds after being suspended. He says Fox Sports did not renew its contract nearly six months after the August 2020 incident.
“If I’m at the grocery or getting a cup of coffee at a local convenience store, 99% of the people I hit, I’ll ask, ‘We want you to come back, we’ll miss you!'” Brennan Told the Sports Broadcast Journal. “Let’s say it is 90%. Do the managers make the decision to appease 10%? You don’t ask the huge 90%?
Brenneman, 58, was caught in what he described as “one of the world’s FG capitals,” which quickly spread on social media. Although the context of the comment was previously unclear, David J. Kerr. Halberstam wrote in the Sports Broadcast Journal as a reference to San Francisco.
“On the TV pre-game show, I didn’t know we were broadcasting. But when my mic was hot, I was criticizing homosexuality. Although it wasn’t broadcast, the clip made its way to the internet and went viral from there. “Brenneman told Halberstam.” “The moment it left my lips, I knew it was over. It was just a matter of time. I was expecting a suspension and a lot of backlash.
Brenneman defended former Sacramento Kings play-by-play voice Grant Napier, after he wrote on Twitter last year, “All Lives Matter … Every Single One!” The tweet comes amid the Black Lives Matter protests following the assassination of George Floyd, for which former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin was convicted of second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree murder.
“How do you justify it? What did he do?” Brenneman said of Napier. Does that make you a casteist? How ridiculous is that? Napier is a great guy in our business.
Brenneman said he is “a member of the Cincinnati area children’s home board, which is primarily used for children who are expelled from their homes because they are gay.”
“He told me that crime doesn’t fit the sentence,” Brenneman said of Costas.
