ESPN Analyst: Condi Rice Does Not Belong on Sports Panel Because She’s a Woman

  • Should Condoleeza Rice be allowed to serve on the College Football Playoff selection committee?

    The answer is definitely “no” if you listened to ESPN analyst David Pollack who said women don’t “belong” on the committee, which includes Rice, a former U.S. Secretary of State.

    Pollack warned the audience he was about to say something unpopular during ESPN’s ‘College GameDay’ on Saturday and then launched into the sexist remark.

    “Now I’m going to stick my foot in my mouth, probably. I want people on this committee, guys, that can watch tape … Yes, that have played football, that are around football, that can tell you different teams, on tape, not on paper…”

    “You said that… I’ll say it, yeah. Yeah,” he responded as other panelists stated that they disagreed.

    The comment came just one day after The Associated Press reported that Rice, a former U.S. Secretary of State, is expected to be a member of the committee that will select teams for the College Football Playoff next year.

    Among those responding to Pollack’s comments were three prominent female college football broadcasters: ESPN’s Samantha Ponder, Erin Andrews of FOX Sports and Bonnie Bernstein of Campus Insiders.

    1. Hey dtown. thank you for the reply, although I must respectfully disagree. I personally dont believe that anyone who committed those acts should be on TV as a weekly reminder to those transgreesions. Cheney, Rumsfeld and Bush have all had the good sense to leave the spotlight becuase they are aware of how much disdain this country has form them. Yeah, I know Cheney and Rumsfeld ( with their No Account Selves) will make an obligaotry appearance on Fox news from time to time becuase in addition to their stupidity thaty are also bigots. Condy should do the same. College football ia an All-American game that millions watch every week. America does not need to see a reminder ever single week of one of the main perpetrators who have put this country in a financial mess, as well as ruining our national relations over the globe. I could say a whole lot more but I hope this will suffice to your question as to what one has to do with the other”
      Peace.

      • No problem. Its all good!! You probably don’t/wouldn’t like the fact that Condi is a professor at Stanford then. I’m not sure if she still is now, but I know she was. LOL!!

    2. I dont object to Condeleeza Rice being on this sports panel because she is a woman. I object to her because she, along with Bush, Cheney and Rumsfeld committed the biggest act of treason on this country since Benedict Arnold.

      • VERY VERY true and I feel you on the Bush thing. But what does THAT have to do with her on a college football sports panel. One has NOTHING to do with the other.

    3. Sounds like he feels a litle threatened. The only time people make stupid statements like he made is when they feel threatened.

    4. Condo probably knows more about college football/sports than this guy. There are some women (Sybl Wilks included) that know about sports enough to sit on panels like this, discuss and communicate effectively. Very sexist remark. The guy should be suspended or something. Remember Rob Parker made crazy statements and HE was suspended and eventually let go. They should do the SAME for this guy!!
