Yea I doubt we ever hear it. But hopefully that doesn't matter. Enough people should have heard it live to get them fired.

This isn't a free speech issue. The government isn't stopping them from saying anything. Hopefully the market does.

They won't get fired but they may issue a public apology

Don't lump this in with the team or the city, please. As a rival, I don't think there's another team I hate more than the Falcons, but this isn't them.

You clearly have no idea what freedom of speech means.

You have the freedom to say what you want, but I have the freedom to respond. This gets forgotten a lot.

If they do this it will be worse for them. They can't play it down if there is nothing there it automatically makes them look guilty. I emailed Mike Florio a link to this thread and pretty much copied the OP's comment and sent it to him. I doubt anything will come of it, but the more people that hear about it the more heat we can bring to the people at the radio station.

You're probably right. If the audio did get released and it is as bad as the OP claimed, then I would definitely expect them to get fired. But since none of us will actually hear it, it looks like all we'll get is a stupid apology.

I'm not surprised you're more interested in our reactions that what was originally said.

I thought his point was that they have a right to say it (true) and complaining about them saying it is equivalent to complaining about free speech (false). That's how I took it at least. Bringing up free speech was irrelevent imo.

Even then they wouldn't get fired, especially since it will generate ratings for them. They would really have to cross a line and unfortunately making fun of disabilities/disease isn't that line.
Had he been gay and they mocked him, then they may get fired because the LBGT community would get behind the cause and they would have power in numbers.

Well, with Fujita spreading this thread around, I bet it hits media quickly.
