Gloria Allred

RIPS BOOMER ESIASON

Your Parenting Advice is 'Insensitive & Thoughtless'

4/4/2014 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0403-esiason-alred-murphy-getty-01Boomer Esiason's priorities are totally SCREWED UP ... so says Gloria Allred who's blasting the ex-NFL star for suggesting athletes should NEVER take paternity leave if it clashes with playing in a game.

FYI -- After NY Mets 2nd baseman Daniel Murphy missed 2 games this week for the birth of his son, Boomer went on the radio and said he would've had his wife schedule a c-section before the season so he could play on opening day.

Allred clearly doesn't see it his way -- "Suggesting that she should risk such a procedure, (which includes the possibility of hemorrhaging and infection), in order that her husband not miss work is insensitive and thoughtless."

"The opening day of his son’s life is much more important than the opening day of a baseball season."

Allred continues, "Every child should know that their dad thought their birth was more important than anything else in the world and that both of their parents loved and sacrificed for them from the moment of their birth and for the remainder of their life."

"Daniel Murphy should be congratulated and commended, not criticized for being with his wife and baby son after his son was born."

That's jacked up. If he's married I feel bad for his wife. Kudos to Daniel Murphy for taking off to be there for his wife and child. It's his first baby first experience wouldn't you want to be there?

How long was Gloria's maternity leave when Lisa Bloom was born? She probably had her going to law school in the womb.

Boomer gives to kids charity's in huge donation packages. Gloria "The POS" is a media wannabe blowhard who loses lots of her cases and exploits her clients for her personal benefit. Why anyone hires this ****roach is beyond me. I hope she burns in hell after dying a very painful death.

Daniel Murphy absolutely should not have to defend himself. This is a once in a lifetime experience and it is his choice weather to be there or not. Though is there more leeway given to some athletes than others based on how many games constitute a season? (player in MLB vs player in NFL) <- kind of same argument as whats on State.com thread (http://st8.it/NYPaternity )

Norman Esiason is a foul mouthed jerk. For those of you that are used to hearing only the "clean" Esiason on CBS on Sunday, be aware that he is a potty mouthed low class fool on the radio.

Dont care for this lady. But Boomer was out of line with this one. Husbands should be with there wives when giving birth. Anything could happen to the baby and the mom. People should really think before the speak.
