This is irresponsible and he needs to be fired.
I'm sure he'll pull the old "I was only joking" line, but this is sickening that he'd say such things to get the ratings and publicity he's now getting. Lance Armstrong chimed in via Twitter:ESPN's Tony Kornheiser went on a anti-road cyclist rant during his March 11th ESPN Radio show. When talking about cyclists on the road, some of his comments were:
"RUN THEM DOWN, like Wile Coyote's, run them over. Just stay on the right. Stay on the right."
"And they all wear...my God...with the little water bottle in the back and their stupid hats and their shiny shorts, they are the same disgusting poseurs that come out in the middle of a snow storm with cross country skiing on your block. Run them down."
"Why do these people think that these roads were built for bicycles?"
"I don't take my car and drive on the sidewalk, because I understand what the road is for."
Oh sure, now he's sorry....he's sorry alright. Hopefully sorry and unemployed.@lancearmstrong - Listening to Tony Kornheiser’s comments/rant on ESPN radio re: cyclists. Disgusting, ignorant, foolish. What a complete f-ing idiot.
@lancearmstrong - …just off the phone w/ Tony Kornheiser who’s very sorry 4 his comments re: cyclists. Going on the show 2morrow 2 discuss this w/ him.
