Keith Olbermann just referred to a black player on the Buffalo Bills of playing for a chicken and waffle house.
Good thing his liberal credentials give him a free pass.
He’s got Racism Insurance from the JustUs Brothers - Al and Jesse.
I heard that comment but I didn’t understand it. Anyway, I hope Tiki Barber punches him before the season ends.
I refuse to watch the NBC Sunday night programming because of him.
We have a chicken and waffle house nearby. Why is that racist?
What, no watermelon? /s What an insufferable liberal boor! What is he doing on an NFL broadcast?
thanks, now i’m hungry for chicken and waffles with lots of syrup.
Keith is patently stupid..beside being an apparent racist based on that comment, he apparently forgot that Timmy Russert is a HUGH and I mean HUGH Bills fan. and Timmy Russert is way up the pecking order from Olberfella.
Not a good move anyway you figure it.
I’m sure it’ll be on YouTube soon enough....would like to see it myself...
Tiki would only have to look at Olberwoman and his bowels would discharge.
Where is the Rev Al and JJ?
Having Olberman on as a sports commentator is the height of ignorance. Why would a person with half a brain place a devisive idiot like Olberman in that position. For crying out loud, the guy has the same speech writer as Osama Bin Laden!
Could you imagine what would happen if Rush Limbaugh said that?
I’m boycotting NBC.
ok, i’m stupid, i don’t have a clue what that means
if howard cosell or rush limbaugh would have said that....the outrage from the left would have forced the two from broadcasting....
olberman the a-hole gets a pass from nbc!!!!!
if he is in the booth...I will watch another game!!!
It’s okay. He is a liberal slimeball, thus not up to being taken down by the members of Pravda.
What is a chicken and waffle house ? Are they nicer than trailer houses ? Would they be secure in hurricanes ?
2 days later:
“What I meant to say was GEORGE BUSH and the REPUBLICANS would say that, I would never say that, so it’s actually bush’s fault!”
I think the waffles would get soggy and I’d be damn afraid of animals eating the chicken. Maybe this is partly to blame for this housing crisis they keep yaking about on the radio.
He is the reflection of Geradlo “The Fake”. NBC is doing just like FNC, trying to force us to watch him. I was going thru the channels the other night, on FNC they said, “stay tuned, for Geraldo’s take on OBL.” Give me a break, went to the weather channel.
During the Patriots/Jets game, one of the announcers said a player looked like a “javelin thrower.” This was just as Randy Moss was catching a 50 yard touchdown pass.
Javelin thrower? That’s a spear chucker isn’t it?
I went back on the TIVO and checked. He was talking about Tom Brady.
I had a little bull dog and no way could you confine him in a structure composed of chicken and waffles .
Olber(wo)mann...racist mo fo!!! Fire that little beyotch!!!!!! Or is MSNBC a racist network?
Last Week, Chris Matthews called Larry Craig a sexual deviant on his show. I assume the gays won’t be angry at their liberal friend. Just another example.
See, that must be what those sub-prime loans that they’re talking about were for. No wonder they’re losing their shirts! The dog gets loose and half your investment is in a pile on the lawn a few hours later!
You and me both. As long as he is on there, I will not watch any of it.
Nobody watches that clown anyway.
He is such a sad clown.
not to worry, refinance it and buy another.
I’ve read the whole thread and I still don’t know what that reference means.
I almost feel sorry for Bob Costas...lots of fake chuckling...Olbermann goes on a pre-written rant ... tired, contrived and boring.... NBC is trying so hard to drum up an audience for this bozo...
Proof positive that you get back what you put in! :D
Does Olberman think he is the answer to Dennis Miller, because he ain't.
I don't have to imagine it - I KNOW what happened to Rush and he was not even directing his comment towards a black player, he was talking about the attitudes of the MSM towards black players. He was unjustly fired and the media took his comments completely out of context and pilloried him anyway!
soul food at its best, including fried chicken and waffles
Roscoe’s House of Chicken ‘n Waffles is a Hollywood, California-based soul food restaurant chain founded by Herb Hudson, a Harlem native, in 1976. It is best known, as the name states, for serving chicken and waffles, both together and separately, although they do offer more traditional menu items as well.
A fictional version of the restaurant is featured prominently in the 1988 film Tapeheads.
In 2004, a comedy film was released by the same name starring Glenn Plummer, Anthony Johnson, and Clifton Powell.
Could be because he gained his original notoriety as a key anchor on ESPN. Personally, I think he is a jerk.
Sunday night is NFL on radio night here for me (when there’s a game I particularly care about, that is . . . )
I’m watching other channels until kickoff myself.
I’m not even watching NBC. I’m watching baseball on ESPN.
Remember when Cosell called a small Washington receiver a “speedy litle jackrabbit”?
His career faded into the sunset.
The Bible calls that the ‘scourge of the mouth’.
Time to call NBC headquarters and demand the bastard be fired!!!!!
I dont know that, that is rascist.
Anyhow, I love chicken and waffles
