Play video

During the first quarter of the Lions game today, the announcer, Chris Myers was talking about a player who was on the Pittsburgh Steelers last season but now plays for Detroit.

#51 Mary-- Whoopie is attractive? What planet are you from? How can she let it slide and also cut him to the quick?? You make no sense what so ever. Humor is not always pretty. Get over it.

If I were a guy I would choose Whoopi over Beyonce. At least I know I would have intelligent conversation during the date. ; )

Whoopi is a big girl. I think she knows she is not in the same league as Beyonce. Don't make more out of this than it is...a lame attempt at humor...not a reason to fire someone. Shall we move on?

its a rude comment. guys laugh at this type of stuff; but they would be offended if it was a woman announcer saying something like "that's like going from George Clooney to Jon Gosselin". they would be insulted because they all look like tubby jon Gosselin and not george clooney, so they would call the announcer a b-tch or wh-re.
