The Doug Adler story

ridiculous this has now got to the point this has.

I've followed this case closely right from the start.

There is no way imho he meant it in a racial way. He's used the guerrilla warfare remark in the past while commentating on tennis.

And now suddenly he gets into trouble bc he uses it for a black lady.

Latest is, he's had a heart attack due to the stress of the situation.

Classic case of a misunderstanding destroying someone's life.

Tennis commentator Doug Adler axed from ESPN's Australian Open coverage after Venus Williams 'gorilla' comment | The Independent

America is in rehab mode after the past 8yrs. Once we get deprogrammed, the egg shells under sensitive feet will be swept away, then we can once again have jokes and miles of smiles. I hope this guy takes millions in restitution from that crap network. The poor guy gets taken out of context from a job he loved and gets hammered by some over sensitive bigot.

PS: Keith I see a good payday in your future

His court case against espn is coming up soon. Mid October.

I hope it goes well for him, but doubt it will.

100% Doug meant the remark in terms of "guerrilla warfare". And nothing else (he did NOT mean it in a racial way).

Justice has finally been served.

Espn has admitted their wrong doing. Given doug a big payout for damages.

And re-hired him.

Doesnt take away from the fact it should have never happened.

Yeah I hear that.

Think Doug is very passionate about his work. But it is unusual for sure.
