Gloria Allred


Your Parenting Advice is 'Insensitive & Thoughtless'

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

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."

This is the only time I would ever agree with Gloria Allred. She's such an ambulance chaser.

Baseball is a children's game. Birthing is real life. But when Gloria "Allread-y-for-the-camera" chimes in, you gotta wonder her angle.

I had a friend who had a final in college and his wife was in labor, he told his professor, the professor said you leave, you fail. My friend told him to f@ck off. And he went to be with his wife. So much respect for guys who take off to be with their wives and newborns. So Boomer on this you can s@ck it!

I don't see what all of the vitriol is about this. Daniel Murphy is an average or slightly below average player. He is certainly not an offensive juggernaut. Who really missed him for a few games?

In the spirit of diversity and tolerance as practiced by the left/lib/dems, Boomer must be fired.
