An attempt at an inside joke by former NFL quarterback and Fox studio analyst Terry Bradshaw during the Fox halftime show on Sunday has caused a bit of a controversy.
While describing Miami Dolphins running back Reggie Bush's remarkable 18-yard touchdown run against the Indianapolis Colts, a play where Bush made half the Colts defense look completely silly, Bradshaw took a shot at his colleague, former NFL head coach Jimmy Johnson.
"Look at this, Jimmy," said Bradshaw, "like he was chasing that bucket of chicken that the wind was blowing the other day."
Because Bush is African-American, many have jumped to the conclusion that the mention of a bucket of chicken means there was a racial element to Bradshaw's comment. In the video, Fox studio host Curt Menefee, who is African-American, audibly groans and asks, "What are we going to do with him?" http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-shutdown-corner/fox-terry-bradshaw-causes-stir-bucket-chicken-192645262--nfl.html

On Monday morning, Menefee took to Twitter to say that Bradshaw's comment was actually an inside joke at Fox, where Johnson's love of fried chicken has apparently reached a mythical status, and that this whole affair is much ado about nothing.

He didn't say anything stupid. I call people out for dumb comments. The idea that a white guy is never allowed to talk about fried chicken when at all referencing a black guy is just plain absurd.

I play ball with a lot of black folks and I'd be lost if I didn't have fried chicken jokes to bandy about during and after games. The only people who don't think that's funny are people who never laugh. It's out of control. TB sits up there every Sunday smoking and joking with a panel which is half black. If his fellow-panel members are offended then do something. Otherwise, MYOB.

True. IF they can find something that someone MIGHT find objectionable-then
SPIN it to bring someone down.

That is what is ruining the country.

Anything can be objectionable if we work hard enough at it.

At least Menefee stood up for him-The only mistake Bradshaw made was using an inside joke on the air. Broadcast rule no no. Dr. Johnny would say that too.
