Imus Pacman Jones audio

New, comments

This isn't really Eagles related, but it's football related and hey... it's the offseason. This is the latest tempest in a teapot over some comments made by radio guy Don Imus about Cowboys CB Adam "Pacman" Jones(I'm not dropping the Pacman!)

Don Imus said Tuesday morning on his radio show that he was trying to "make a sarcastic point" with his latest on-air remarks about race, but that they had been misunderstood.

Imus resurrected his radio career six months ago with a pledge to mend the wounds caused by a racist and sexist comment he made about a women's basketball team.

You tell me, is this offensive?


Then choir boy Pacman Jones feigned outrage over the incident...

"I'm truly upset about the comments," Jones said. "Obviously Mr. Imus has problems with African-Americans. I'm upset, and I hope the station he works for handles it accordingly. I will pray for him."

WABC and Citadel Broadcasting Corp. Vice President Phil Boyce said Monday that it was unlikely the broadcasters would take disciplinary action against Imus.

God I can't wait for football season...
