ESPN has suspended TV commentator Tony Kornheiser for remarks about fellow ESPN personality Hannah Storm, according to multiple reports Tuesday.

 



Kornheiser, the popular host of the show "Pardon the Interruption," is known for making sports figures the subject of his humorous criticism, but in a recent show he aimed his commentary at Storm's wardrobe."Hannah Storm in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today," Kornheiser said. "She’s got on red go-go boots and a catholic school plaid skirt … way too short for somebody in her 40s or maybe early 50s by now."She’s got on her typically very, very tight shirt. She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body … I know she’s very good, and I’m not supposed to be critical of ESPN people, so I won’t … but Hannah Storm … come on now! Stop! What are you doing?"Kornheiser opened his radio show the next day by apologizing, saying, "I apologize, unequivocally ... I'm a sarcastic, subversive guy ... I'm a troll, look at me. I have no right to insult what anybody looks like or what anybody wears. That, I think, should go without saying."SportsByBrooks reported the suspension will be for three days.The 61-year-old Kornheiser -- a former columnist for the Washington Post and broadcaster for ESPN's Monday Night Football telecasts -- has hosted PTI since 2001.

Please Tony is still the best thing they got. ESPN knows why they hired him, him and Dan Le bartard are the few people on that network who have a more realistic view on sports life

This.

Tony rules, and PTI is one of my favorite shows. His old ESPN radio show with the live mics on the internet the ENTIRE show was the best radio I've EVER heard...

PTI is one of the biggest reasons why ESPN sucks nowadays. I could care less about clueless sportswriters having phony shouting matches with each other about the same handful of topics.

Why are him and Wilbon always yelling? It doesn't even make sense.

It's like a competition to see who can yell the loudest with no moderation. At least "Around the Horn" has a mute button.

True, but it also has professional ass hat Jay Mariotti so it truly needs that mute button.

Do what I do, just watch ESPN News. I haven't seen anything on the regular ESPN channels since Monday Night Football was done for the season. ESPN sucks as a network.

Word is that the suspension really came for his not-so-thinly veiled bash at Chris Berman gaining all the weight back he lost on whatever diet plan he was hawking.

Actually, I love Tony...I dearly miss his national show. He's the ONLY reason I watch PTI. I dont find anything he said/says "offensive" at all. He's hysterical.

Colin Cowherd, on the other hand...isn't very funny. He does make good points from time to time, and I'd love to fuck  that Michelle chick he works with on that show, but I dont find Colin funny.

Nor, do i find that moron they have teamed up w/Scotty Van Pelt, who the fuck is he? I know who SVP is, and he's one of the best, IMO, for doing the lead ups to the majors golf tourneys. I dont know who the hell the guy on his show is though? he's a maroon, and knows dick about sports.

ESPN is reporting this morning on Sportscenter that the suspension is for 2 weeks and not 3 days as was reported earlier.
