He said it, what a dumbass.


"CHEW" OR "JEW"?  YOU DECIDE

There's an intriguing imbroglio unfolding in NFL media circles regarding whether ESPN's Sean Salisbury uttered the word "Jew" during Monday's broadcast of NFL Live.  The term was used in connection with Salisbury's discussion regarding the Colts' come-from-behind win over the Patriots on Sunday.

We'd heard about the incident from several readers, and we asked around the blogosphere about it.  Our friends at Deadspin.com had the balls (and we respect them for it) to post a carefully-crafted story regarding the issue.  And the RandBall blog at StarTribune.com writes that ESPN claims that Salisbury said "chew."

Here's the audio.  http://www.profootballtalk.com/NFLLive1-22-07.wav   You decide.

This is what we heard Salisbury say, regarding the approach that the Colts and quarterback Peyton Manning employed on Sunday:  "We'll nip, we'll tuck, we'll go, we'll punch, we'll Jew, we'll do it all.  And they nickel-and-dimed it and Peyton made the play when it mattered all through the second half."  [Editor's note:  We previously had "crunch" in place of "punch."  We apologize for the error.]

We reported several months back that Salisbury was suspended by ESPN for a week.  Though we didn't disclose the reason for the suspension, it has been reported elsewhere that it was the result of Salisbury taking a picture of his, um, appendage and showing it to others.

We don't know whether Salisbury meant to say "Jew" or whether he was simply talking too fast.  But it wasn't "chew," and if ESPN thinks that anyone will believe that, then ESPN thinks we're all stoopid.

Of course, the continued presence of Michael Irvin on the Bristol airwaves pretty much confirms that ESPN thinks we're all stoopid. 

And thanks so much to the reader who recorded the audio and sent it to us.  We owe you one.  (It's just a figure of speech.  Please don't ask us for anything.)

Can't get the audio to work but "Jew" as a term usually is used by half-wits as in "I'll Jew him down on the price". It doesn't make sense in this context and I don't know any other derogatory use of the term. Whereas in the midst of talking about nip, tick, punch....chew does actually make sense if it is a bit odd.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

from the quote, he used the term "nickel and dime" in the following sentence, which suggests the context you are speaking of.  "Chew" does seem to make a little more sense, but I guess the argument could be made for either.

In the context of we'll punch, we'll Jew, we'll do it all.  And they nickel-and-dimed it

it does tend to make it likely he used the word jew.

however if you take the first half of that sentence we'll punch,we'll Jew, we'll do it all. then Jew doesnt make much sense.

and he did say the word jew. its pretty clear he probably intended to say chew but his mouth got ahead of his brain and he said jew , since the reference to nickel and diming was coming up

It's pretty clear he said jew and then used the nickel and dime reference right behind it.

Jew, no question.  And it fits the context.

It sounds like Jew. But I think it's about intention. Chew.

But either way, he'll never admit to it so it's a non-story. He's not getting
fired or reprimanded for what he MIGHT have said. IMO.

So what if he did.  He ought to pull a Charles Barkley and say F you if you don't like it.
