ESPN's next scandal... Mitch Holthus?

Already on the frontpage of USA Today's website:

http://www.usatoday.com/story/gameon...state/1786999/

ESPN announcer: Angel Rodriguez has 'Puerto Rican temper'

Angel Rodriguez has endured racially insensitive remarks before. The Kansas State point guard and Puerto Rico native put up with chants of "Where's your green card?" from the Southern Miss band last season.

During the second half of Saturday's game between Kansas State and Florida, Rodriguez picked up his third foul on a contested play. ESPN announcer Mitch Holthus and analyst Fran Fraschilla then discussed the merit of the foul.

But Holthus concluded the sequence by saying, "That's sometimes where the Puerto Rican temper kicks in there. They need him on the floor instead of picking up a third foul."

It's unclear what prompted such a comment. But in cases like this, intent is irrelevant. Whether Holthus knew it or not, he was tapping into an offensive stereotype.

And it's another bad look for ESPN, which just dealt with the fallout of Rob Parker's comments on RGIII. The two remarks don't mirror each other, but how can Holthus be so out of touch after watching Parker be lambasted?

Mitch probably wishes more Chiefs had that Puerto Rican temper...

I was always surprised he didn't get more of a backlash from the centaur population when Larry Johnson played for the Chiefs.

Not defending him by any stretch, I mean " put the hammer down" is like fingernails on a chalkboard, but is it possible he said "the Puerto Rican's temper" as a way of acknowledging Angel's heritage and not as a generalization? Had the sound down and Christmas music up so I can't say....

Mitch Holthus has embraced the Chiefs 2-14 or bust mentality himself. Good for him.

This is the most united from top to bottom towards a common goal I think I've ever seen this team.

I don't understand the big deal. I've heard the same descriptors applied to Rosie Perez. Why are sportscasters all the sudden held to a higher standard? I don't think this is going to blow up much at all.
