To me, this is kinda like the whole “carrying an assault rifle down the street” thing… I’m all about freedoms to do that kind of stuff, but just because you CAN do something, doesn’t always mean you SHOULD. Hence, there’s no real reason to go out stirring up trouble just because you “technically can”. If the contact between the officer and the driver had escalated to anything more, then I would probably be okay with him pulling some of that; but stuff like that is honestly unnecessary. He’s got too much free time if he can spend it instigating arguments.

The reason is obvious.. during times of slavery, there was most likely some slaves who were choked. Using this term is offensive to African-Americans.
Unfortunately, one of the rules of being a local sports guy is that you have to be a bit of a homer, or you lose access (or in this case get suspended). That's what I suspect what was going on here rather than the specific wording. "Tough loss, coach" might have been a better opener.
Once you get to the ESPN / Big Network level the balance of power shifts. Now you control the levers of access to the media instead of them controlling your level of access to the program.

What if we posted a map online that showed houses and information about people who owned luxury watches or high value jewlery?
Or just the highest salaries. Better yet, highest salaries and members of anti-gun groups, and spread the wealth types. They should be happy to help these budding criminals succeed in their chosen profession.

Can you imagine if a white person had suggested this?
