It’s getting very chilly when you say what ESPN’s Scott Van Pelt said about MLB Commissioner Bud Selig the other day on his radio show and end up suspended for a day. In a case of some obvious stepping on of corporate toes, Van Pelt talked, (and in my opinion it was just that, not a rant and didn’t sound very mean spirited-listen here) about Selig’s salary, his stature among other major sports commissioners and a few other things. He did use the word “Pimp” in his commentary and was a little personal in his comments, but we hear worse on national radio more than a few times a day. ESPN with huge MLB contracts in place saw fit to put Van Pelt on the sidelines for a day and Scott even called the commish to apologize. I guess in this economic climate when comes to free speech versus job security, one doth not protest too much.
