Sorry, I couldn't help myself.  Guess who got suspended by ESPN today?  Hint: it's not Skip Bayless.

 

 

ESPN has suspended Stephen A. Smith from its TV and radio airwaves for a week following his controversial comments about Baltimore running back Ray Rice's wife, according to Sports Illustrated.

 

 

Note to Stephen A:  It's not a good idea to blame the victim of domestic violence.

He never blamed them. He said they should take a strong look in the mirror and think could I have prevented this

I'm not going to get into a debate, but that is kind of blaming them.  

 

People should have a right to say what they want without fear of getting knocked out (or worse).  And even if you don't believe that, you're talking about a woman vs a man---a professional football player at that.  What can she say, wear, whatever that would cause for Rice to knock her the fug out?  Sticks and stones...dude.

I agree, they should have a right to say what they want without fear of getting knocked out. But Stephen A. Smith should be able to share his opinion on a debate show without fear of getting suspended for his opinion.

I understand a man should not put his hands on a women. What was your stance on the Hardy case?

Who says she wasn't attacking him first and he responded by hitting her once? We don't know what happened before she got knocked out.

Stephen A admitted what he said was insanely dumb so not sure what there is to argue about.

 

Guy makes a good living by yelling dumb things and this time it actually got him in trouble.

Ray Rice gets two days for knocking his wife out cold and Stephen A gets five days for making a tasteless comment. That's some poo....
