Fuck these racist sports jockeys.
KNBR misses the point. Players and managers are bound to be offended by lots of things they hear on the radio, but racist rhetoric like 'brain-dead Carribeans' should not be condoned, ever. It offends every sensible person.
This guy should have been fired immediately.
UPDATE: They get letters:
Subject: you guys have totally missed the point...

Mr. Krueger needs should have been fired immediately. That he hasn't been fired yet is outrageous, and I hope your station suffers for it.
Shoot - typos. Tired.
UPDATE: The Giants get letters:
Hope you guys stick up for your boys. I haven't seen it yet, but here's to hoping that y'all do.
UPDATE: A website advertiser, Lee & Woo Optometry, gets letters:
Subject: are you aware of racist remarks from KNBR sports jockeys?
The story is here:
The manager should not have to stick up for himself by himself. All of us decent citizens should state our unequivocal support for the manager, and our support for the severe reprimand of the announcer who felt compelled to fill the airwaves with racist rhetoric.
As an advertiser on KNBR's website, you have particular influence. All you need to is drop an email or quick phone call to KNBR's sales team and express concern about what happened. Ask them if you're likely to lose business because of the uproar, and ask them what they're doing about it.
Thank you for your support.
p.s. I'm just a concerned citizen. I hope y'all are, too.
Uh-oh - watch out - another website advertiser, Scott Hyver visioncare, got a letter, too. I used his online form - about identical content.
