WEEI And Entercom Tuck Their Tail Between Their Legs And Suspend Kirk Minihane Like Little Bitches

Bostonherald – Vulgar on-air comments by WEEI jock talker Kirk Minihane about Fox Sports reporter Erin Andrews earned him on a one-week suspension and will hit the struggling Boston sports station’s parent company right where it hurts — the wallet — after Fox said it will yank its ads from the airwaves.

“Kirk Minihane’s statements regarding Erin Andrews were offensive and deplorable. It is clear by the response from our listeners, advertisers and employees that Kirk’s efforts to apologize and make this right have been insufficient and ambiguous,” Entercom CEO David Field said. “We want to make it unequivocally clear that his comments were unacceptable and do not reflect Entercom’s values and standards. As a result, we have suspended Kirk for the upcoming week.”

 

Ouch! Has any group of people ever been bitch slapped more than WEEI just got bitch slapped by Fox? They literally bent WEEI and Kurt Minihan over their knee and spanked the shit out of them. Like oh you won’t apologize? Oh you’re beating your chest talking about how tough you are? Hey guess what? We’re pulling our ad dollars. Next thing you know WEEI is screaming uncle and begging for mercy. Seriously can you get emasculated more than this? Just such a horrible look from WEEI.  I don’t care if you agree or disagree with anything Minihane said.  Have a spine one way or the other. It just goes to show a Pirate’s Life ain’t easy. Some guys like a good gun fight. Some guys wave the white flag at the first sign of trouble. I guess we know what side WEEI is on. Kind of feel bad for Minihane here because I’m sure he still doesn’t think he did anything wrong but his bosses are force feeding his dick and pride down his throat.

PS – Out of all the hypocrisy and and ridiculous statements the last 48 hours this Entercom apology is probably the most ridiculous. For 1 week WEEI was defiant standing behind Minihane saying he wouldn’t be punished. If Entercom had that big of a problem with the comments they could have stepped in at any time, but they didn’t. However the second and I mean the second Fox says they’re done advertising suddenly Entercom issues this statement condemning Minihane. Too funny.  At least have a shred of dignity and tell the truth. Say that you can’t survive without Fox’s ad dollars so we’re suspending him. But spare me the song and dance about morals because that clearly had nothing to do with it. I wonder if Entercom’s CEO David Field had to agree to clean Fox’s toilets as well or be Erin Andrews’s butler as part of this agreement?

In any event more proof that the only true pirate ship left in this world is the SS Barstool

Fox Pulls All Advertising From Entercomm Because Kirk Minihane Essentially Said If Erin Andrews Wasn’t Hot She’d Be A Nobody

Boston.comFox Sports has decided to pull all of its advertising from Entercom-owned radio stations and has banned its personalities from appearing on WEEI in the wake of host Kirk Minihane’s recent controversial comments regarding reporter Erin Andrews. Boston.com and the Globe have obtained a copy of the letter Fox Sports president Eric Shanks sent to Entercom president and chief executive officer David Field this afternoon. Entercom is WEEI’s parent company.

Here is the text of Shanks’s letter:

“By now you are no doubt aware of the incidents that occurred on-air at your Boston station WEEI on July 15 and again on July 22. I am referring to the obnoxious comments made by Kirk Minihane on the “Dennis and Callahan” show regarding one of our Fox on-air personalities, Erin Andrews. “As we have previously stated to various media outlets, the comments made by Mr. Minihane were boorish and sexist. Further, the “apology: made by Mr. Minihane was juvenile and insincere. To make matters worse, the “apology” was posted under a banner (allegedly approved by your Boston VP and Market Manager, Phil Zachary) hailing ‘The Triumphant Return of Kirk Minihane.’ “I had hoped by this time we might hear a sincere apology from WEEI, or perhaps someone from your office might have reached out to Fox (which through our film and television businesses is a significant advertiser on Entercom stations). However, none of that has been forthcoming, and needless to say we are disappointed. “I have discussed this issue with our senior management and our various senior marketing executives. At their recommendation, I am writing to inform you that going forward Fox’s entertainment and sports businesses will not be advertising on your stations for the foreseeable future. “I regret that we need to take this action, but as one of our executives reminded me, “sometimes you need to vote with your feet.” “I trust you will discuss our decision with your staff at WEEI.”

 

Kudos to Fox for taking a stand here. You can’t let radio talk show hosts be sexist or juvenile. God forbid you allow that. Not at a serious news organization like Fox.  I mean at Fox they hold themselves to a higher standard.  They are a beacon of hope for feminists everywhere. Sexism will not be tolerated by on any level. Not at Fox it won’t.

PS – I guess I’m still confused by this whole sexism thing and who is allowed to call who sexist?  Like if your hiring process is sexist are you allowed to complain when somebody makes sexist comments about the girls you hired?   Apparently not?

This kid’s name is Jeremy and is 20. The kid is a local hero and makes our shitty town fun by throwing parties. Due to this not so slender build my friends and I have been unsuccessful in getting him laid despite the parties. He has shed about 60 lbs in the past couple months, that combined with the makeover will help get this kid the pussy he deserves.

Emergency Press Conferece – Barstool Vs. The World

    First of all I fully admit 98% of that made no sense.  That’s what happens when I get riled up on casual Fridays.     Either way it’s a Pirate’s life for me.

This looks like a pretty sweet gig, I mean the chick is hot as hell. But this is basically just someone who keeps sitting on you. No fucking thanks to that. If I’ve got 30 years of bad choices and regret hanging over my nuts and blocking all access to my pleasure nerves, I’m not getting a stupid lap dance. Breathing is hard enough as it is when you’re wearing two people on your body at all times, don’t need some little blonde jumping on me too.
