What a loser. Sorry he ever wore a Buccaneer uniform. Comcast did the right thing by firing his thug azz. His commentary during the Miami U and FL Internation brawl was unacceptable.

Found this tid bit on BucPower.com...what a thug loser:
Former Miami Hurricane who lived up to the image of that college at the time by being arrested for beating up his pregnant fiancee. Was released by the Bucs shortly afterwards in a move described as being unrelated, but everyone knew it was. Wound up playing another couple of seasons for Jimmy Johnson in Miami - says it all really. Never played to his third round potential and was overshone by his college team-mate and fellow 1993 draft pick, Horace Copeland.

Maybe the old saying is true - "you can take the boy out of the ghetto, but you can never take the ghetto out of the boy"

Lamar and Silly-o were busy talking about how the fight was a good thing and it's just people picking on them.

No. Horace Copeland.

Thomas said:

"Now, that's what I'm talking about," Thomas said as the brawl raged out of control. "You come into our house, you should get your behind kicked. You don't come into the OB playing that stuff. You're across the ocean over there. You're across the city. You can't come over to our place talking noise like that. You'll get your butt beat. I was about to go down the elevator to get in that thing."

As the fight slowed, Thomas' comments continued.

"I say, why don't they just meet outside in the tunnel after the ball game and get it on some more? You don't come into the OB, baby," Thomas said. "We've had a down couple years but you don't come in here talking smack. Not in our house."

TV Analyst Fired Over Brawl Comments

By TIM REYNOLDS
AP Sports Writer
 
MIAMI (AP) -- Former Miami player Lamar Thomas lost his TV analyst job Monday over comments he made during a sideline-clearing brawl involving the Hurricanes and Florida International.

Comcast Sports SouthEast, a regional cable network that hired Thomas before the season, also decided to edit out his comments before the game is replayed later this week.

"We were disappointed in the incident that happened on the field and regret the way it was handled in the broadcast booth," CSS general manager Mark Fuhrman said. "We do not support or condone the inappropriate comments made by color analyst Lamar Thomas and have taken the necessary steps to prevent a similar situation from ever occurring again."

 
Thomas made his comments as dozens of Miami and FIU players stormed the Orange Bowl field and fought during the third quarter of their teams' game Saturday night, an incident that led to the suspension of at least 31 players and forced officials from both schools to publicly apologize for the melee.

"Now, that's what I'm talking about," Thomas said as the brawl raged out of control. "You come into our house, you should get your behind kicked. You don't come into the OB playing that stuff. You're across the ocean over there. You're across the city. You can't come over to our place talking noise like that. You'll get your butt beat. I was about to go down the elevator to get in that thing."

Miami and Florida International have campuses 9 miles apart in Miami-Dade County. It was the first meeting between the two programs, and the Hurricanes went on to win 35-0.

As the fight slowed, Thomas' comments continued.

"I say, why don't they just meet outside in the tunnel after the ball game and get it on some more? You don't come into the OB, baby," Thomas said. "We've had a down couple years but you don't come in here talking smack. Not in our house."
