The political correctness/pussification of America is sickening.

It's business. I'm guessing that The Walt Disney Company probably wants to offend the least amount of people as possible. I'm annoyed they thought they needed to apologize, too. But I can't blame them for doing so.

Lol that's absolutely absurd. It's not like the old dude said he wanted to tap that ass, he said she was beautiful in a respectable and tasteful manner. If women take offense to being called beautiful then society is ****ed lol

You gotta keep in mind that businesses have to extrapolate what large %s of their customers think based on what a tiny % of their customers say.

In this case, ESPN probably figured that for every 1 complainer they could hear, there are 100 they couldn't hear, but that feel the same way. So they nipped it in the bud instead of waiting to see if it blew up or blew over, or instead of standing their ground.

They probably also figured if they did nothing and it blew up, it could hurt them (sponsors bailing on ad deals, or using the hubub to grind the network for cheaper rates), but if they just issue this statement saying Musberger "went too far" and move on, the only thing hurt is Musberger's pride.

Basically, they figured they might lose viewers if they didn't say anything, but they're not going to lose any viewers by saying something.

I mean, look at us, we all think it's dumb that they made a statement about it, but are any of us going to not watch ESPN as a result? Probably not.

Cue SportsCenter theme here...

everyones always looking for the 10... they don't exist. perfection is impossible, and 10/10 is the definition of that. 9.9/10 sure.

I also think the rating scale changes when discussing celebrities / models, as they deserve more scrutiny. But in this case, she is just a college football QB's gf, and she is a 9/10 for me anyways (seems nice, maybe shes crazy and that'll knock her a point or two who knows).

I disagree. I prefer fair skin with dark hair. Always have. Always will.



Wait....



Is she wearing yoga pants at this Starbucks?
























Because that changes everything.
