From Sunday Night Football? Politics and football don't mix and I find him to be offensive and part of the reason I don't watch NBC's pre-game show.

He was on last night with Rachel Maddow. If there would have been a gun sitting between them they'd have had an arm wrestling contest to see who would commit suicide first.

The only way to do it would be to watch and see who the sponsors are and email them and tell them you're upset about it. If enough people did that it could matter. Emails to NBC itself won't matter. They probably would like it. Only losing dollars would matter, and if Coke or Pepsi or whoever let NBC know that their consumers don't like him, it might matter. That's what ultimately got Imus yanked- when enough pressure was put on the sponsors who in turn put it on the network broadcasting him.

Teabagging is not sexual preference specific. How can that be a gay slur.

So umm, you don't watch the show but know you don't like him on it and are going out of your way to create gay slurs where there are none.

I don't watch it either...if he was dropping political BS in the football show I think that is inappropriate but I am not sure if that is happening.

There is no problem with you not liking him, I don't watch much of him because I am not a big fan. If he sticks to football for his football show then I don't see the big problem.

It's absolutely a gay slur. A straight man can buttf*** a straight woman, but the term buttf****er would clearly be intended as a gay slur. A straight man can sodomize a straight woman, but calling someone a sodomist as a pejorative would clearly be intended as a gay slur.
