ESPN Suspends Dana Jacobson One Week for Saying 'F--- Jesus' at Roast
ESPN First Take co-host Dana Jacobson has been suspended for one week for her comments during a celebrity roast celebrating ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning.

The suspension, first reported in the Chicago Tribune, comes after Jacobson reportedly said "F*** Notre Dame," "F*** Touchdown Jesus," and "F*** Jesus" in an attempt to talk trash to Mike and Mike co-host Mike Golic, a former Notre Dame football player.

An ESPN spokesman e-mailed me the following statements:
FROM ESPN
"Her actions and comments were inapprorpriate and we have dealt with it."

FROM DANA
"I am very sorry. My remarks about Notre Dame were foolish and insensitive. I respect all religions and did not mean anything derogatory by my poorly chosen words. I also deeply regret the embarrassment I have caused ESPN and Mike and Mike. My actions at the roast were inappropriate and in no way represent who I really am. I have personally apologized to many of the people involved. I won't make excuses for my behavior but do hope that I can be forgiven for such a poor lack of judgment."

She was also heavily inebriated and had to be escorted off the stage on two seperate occasions.

See, this is what happens when The Mouse lets people think on their own. Why didn't they just send crosseyed Stuart Scot or one of the other non-talents to go read some stuff Mickey wrote on a cue card?

A little over the top.

Count me in too. As much as I can appreciate some off-color jokes and anti-PC behavior, when you are at an event hosted by  YOUR EMPLOYER, a little common sense and decorum should be excercised.

It was a fucking roast. You are supposed to be obnoxious and offensive. I say good for her. I read someplace else that she was drinking straight from a vodka bottle. Considering I don't really like anyone on EPSN she is now my favorite.

Exactly. It's not as if she said:"lynch Jesus".

I actually saw her for the first time about a week or so ago while at the gym.  She is one of the less annoying ESPN anchors so I sure hope that they keep her. 
I wonder what they would do to Shecky Greene, Steve Allen, etc... in this day at a roast with all of the PC bullshit?

Somewhere Dino is rolling over in his grave.
Strange how no video of this is on the net.

I understand what you all are saying about a roast, but I think we also have to factor in that she works for DISNEY.  "Private time" and "company time" are different things.

I'm not offended by what she said in the least, but I think you need to show more sense when on company time. They can call it "roast" all they want, but it is a company sponsored event.

Never thought about the Disney affiliation. 

Doesn't Disney own "Sports & Wrestling" too?  Whatever happened to the merger talks?
