What did he say? Mark May is calling for him to be canned after Doug's comments. I tuned in too late. Thanks.
Wave goodbye to Doug everybody.
He said he was there to give the white guys perspective. He is in studio with Anthony andSmith and Barkley and Gumble. I thought it was hilarious.

Thank you sir! +1 to you
Eat clean. Train Hard.
LOL that's actually pretty funny. SAD if this were exactly the opposite, nothing would be said or tweeted. Love Mark May but he's taking something too far this time.
My goodness we have become insane about political correctness. Stupid imho
It was said in humor,god give the guy a break.
If you want to walk the heavenly streets of gold, you gotta know the password, "Roll, tide, roll!"
From a black man's perspëctive... I got a slight chuckle, it definitely wasn't anything to cause
I don't get it. If Mark May is calling for his firing then I just lost all respect for May. It's a shame too because May was maybe my favorite college football analyst. Gottlieb's comment was not racist in any way. He was trying to make humor out of the fact that he was the only white guy there. What is offensive about that? Or did people not realize he was white until he said something? He was making fun of himself. It would have been nice to get a courtesy laugh from the other guys so it would not be so awkward but I guess they saw an opportunity to make him look bad so they decided to go that route instead. I don't get why they started looking around after he said it either.
I remember when ESPN was down in Miami before the BCS championship and they had one of Van Pelt's "Bald Man on Campus" segments. When it was over, Desmond Howard mentioned that he lives in Miami and made a joke asking if he could have his own segment called "Black Man on the Beach". I thought that was a funny comment just like Gottlieb's. So why didn't people get offended over Howard acknowledging his own skin color the way they are now with Gottlieb? (That's a rhetorical question. I know why.)
If you are offended by Gottlieb's or Howard's comments then you are a huge pussy. If people would quit being so damn scared to talk or make jokes about race in public then it would not be near as big of an issue.
