ESPN's Bob Griese Suspended for 'Taco' Comment About NASCAR's Montoya

Given the language disucssion we've had here lately, the similarity to the issue we had here several years ago with Taco John, and the fact that it took place during a football game broadcast...

I thouth this was interesting.

ESPN's Bob Griese Suspended for 'Taco' Comment About NASCAR's Montoya

Oct. 27, 2009
Rob Kuznia -- HispanicBusiness.com

It's been a scandalous week for Walt Disney Company's ESPN.

A couple days after ESPN baseball analyst Steve Phillips was fired for having an affair with a production assistant who went public, broadcaster Bob Griese today was suspended for one week after making a racially insensitive comment about Juan Pablo Montoya, a NASCAR driver from Colombia, according to the Associated Press .

The gaffe occurred Saturday, when Griese was commentating for a college football game, and a graphic showing NASCAR's five leaders in the points race appeared on screen. When another analyst asked why Montoya wasn't on the list, Griese replied that he must be "out having a taco."

Griese has since apologized twice on air.

Meanwhile, Montoya doesn't seem to be taking the comment too seriously. He declined to comment, but did say he'd never even heard of Griese.

This kind of stupidity, (the suspension), is actually detrimental to the whole racial issue. IMHO And I am sensitive to the issue.

Who cares what color you are? Tacos are delicious. So is watermelon, fried chicken, bangers and mash, and phad thai. If we can't laugh and celebrate our cultural differences in good spirits, forget about eliminating racism. It'll never happen.

It's hyper-sensitivity and politeness. We try to atone for our past mistakes and go a little overboard sometimes.

They're ****in good. My wife made fun of me for ordering it, but it's all about the pepperjack sauce. The African American taco shell really has nothing to do with it.

Its like when some guy (I think that old player for the white sox who took off his pants) comically accused Lou Pinella of stealing his wallet.

Then they fired him for making detrimental remarks towards Pinella since he is Latino.

I never even knew Pinella was Latino.
