Fellas have there ever -- at night we drink so much that you passed out and actually decided to keep drinking the next day. This is like a hair of the dog argument yeah. Course well yeah and that figure would you define passed out some people really -- just fall asleep. You know -- a pass on the corner and -- home and pass out as far back in the college days woke up and gone back after I don't think what. Outlook before and I'm still moving party boys and ability -- the following. The.

It by collecting a quick. -- I haven't tried that -- We have another ESPN. Suspension for a couple of days the last agree -- what they'll have a chart. He was suspended for two days. Because he left the -- -- had eighty out billboard out in Cleveland it. You know that red you're welcome LeBron love Miami with two pitches of the championship brings. Any experience suspended him for a couple of days while Max Kellerman you don't HBO sports league boxing analyst team all time. It's on the big boxing events well barely a few days after the Stephen A Smith -- -- -- suspension -- Ray -- He went on a show Mason and Ireland and talked about his experience domestic violence in -- twenty years ago. He was dating a girl college who by the way now is his wife for twenty years. There was that they were -- said igniting and she actually. Should he try to defuse the situation to slap them in the face and he admitted on the radio show he slapped her back in the face. And again went on saying yeah but obviously you know we were married for twenty years happily married it will ESPN. Suspended him for his comments are many. For admitting it for two days. And there's some confusion it was stable with it. Because he admitted that what happened twenty years ago and apparently had more to do with ESPN. Kind of a large conversation is being had with all of its radio host on air people that barely. Element -- pay attention -- what was that conversation listen Stephen A Smith just talked about this we suspended -- so no one's allowed to talk about domestic violence like. It's just taboo we can't talk about if you do to suspend him that's thought policing in contents policing. And that's where I've got a big problem with it which is why I wrote about it for WEEI dot com at put up on line and that a lot of people interact with me on Twitter after -- posted the column but it's gone off the deep end amid this -- Talking about his experience in -- admitting that yes there one point. With my girlfriend at the time she slapped me and I reacted poorly I was drunk and actually slept her back and mideast married twenty years of this warming brings a justice a situation his lifetime and they suspended just for bringing up both. A story. Don't you think about it -- yes I feel like it's one -- be offended it's quite another to act like your offended on everybody else's behalf and I feel that's what we're doing a lot -- yeah yeah you know -- -- -- it was it was great actually. You really just says everything that needed to be said. But here's ESPN is doing I don't know they even trust the -- analyst on air talent. Do not follow themselves. Who won their when their addressing this situation or anything like it it's so. It's still you know taboo now to go their because. It that they could have with with Stephen A and Tim you touched on it that because he was clumsy with his words and since it was clumsy with his words. The eldest backlash about Stephen -- Smith and I know he was trying to say he's not a you know about it nasty person -- just make in his own point. But it -- through all this attention and therefore they -- acting Hamlet so what they did is they send out a memo that I've got them before a setup email. Don't discuss this this in this hot topic. Which you're the leading broadcaster for sports in the world yet you're mandating what your people are supposed to say it just. It would just reeks of just the border with irritation because play here gonna tell these guys to give their opinions. Yeah you're gonna tell them what they can have opinion on what they can't have an opinion on. Also makes you wonder what they were taken with this Tony Stewart. Situation early in the morning on Sunday some of the content analysis we -- discussing when and Ricky craven and some of the other guys on to what they were not supposed to say. About direct itself what -- that a little bit more in the 1 o'clock hour that's -- for fraud and much about a possible Dolly constructions invents the Maloney Christian -- night 37 W media.
