Bob Griese, ESPN college football analyst (and an NFL Hall of Famer) has been suspended for one week by ESPN after a racist comment he made on Saturday about NASCAR driver Juan Pablo Montoya.

During the Ohio State vs Minnesota game, ESPN ran a NASCAR graphic and Chris Spielman said that he wondered where Montoya was, since his name was not in the Top 5 on the graphic. 

Bob Griese responded with, “He’s was out having a taco.”  The entire conversation was live.

Hence, the week’s suspension.

      Unfair for Griese to make a taco remark and get screwed, while TV en Espanol shows racist comedy all the time, here in the USA, for example, google MEXMUNDOVISION for a taste of ‘comedy’ blasting the African race.

      If he was an Italian driver, and Griese said he’s out having a pizza, would it be racist? Pleeeeaasseee…enough already.

      I’m Norweigen. If he said “he’s out having Lutefisk”, I would think it was great. We are just watching this freedom of speech country of ours go down the drain…………jb

      I love the Morweigen commemt. It could have been worst ….he could have said the driver was out having an interview with the liberal media.
