Idiot Sportscaster Tells Women They Don't Belong In Sports


Oh good news, ladies. There’s a man who thinks we don’t belong in sports! And not just that! We should just shut the fuck up about it, period because we’re just ruining it for all the men!

For pure ratings stunt some reason, KNBR’s Damon Bruce decided to go off on women who associate themselves in anyway with sports. Via Awful Announcing (appropriate blog name for this, really):

In San Francisco of all places, Bruce used the Richie Incognito-Jonathan Martin bullying situation to unleash a near 9 minute rant against women in sports, because obviously, women are to blame for all of this.

Yeah, you know that whole thing about the racist assclown football player who called fellow players the N-word and apparently sexually harrassed women, too? THAT’S ALL YOUR VAGINA’S FAULT!

Here’s all his nonsense, for those of you who like bullshit on a Saturday afternoon:

A lot of sports has lost its way, and I’m gonna tell you, part of the reason is because we’ve got women giving us directions. For some of you, this is going to come across as very misogynistic. I don’t care, because I’m very right.

Oh, OK, bro. So long as you’re ‘right,’ then I guess it’s OK to shove a bunch of misogynistic crap down everyone’s throats.

You see, I’m willing to share my sandbox as long as you’re willing to remember: You’re in my box.

Oh ladiez! See, he’s willing to share! AREN’T WE LUCKY! We just have to shut the fuck up and remember teh man iz in chaaaaaarge.

Every single time somebody goes down with an injury, god forbid a gruesome injury, watch the way women react to it on Twitter… Injuries happen. All of this happens all the time. … Hey if any of this gets too gruesome for you, go write a restaurant column. Go write a housekeeping column. Get out of the world of sports.

Right, no men on Twitter have ever reacted to sports injuries. That has never happened. Ever.

I enjoy many of the women’s contributions to the sports—well that’s a lie [laughing]. I can’t even pretend that’s true. There are very few—a small handful—of women who are any good at this at all. That’s the truth.

Very few. Small handful. So few. Practically none at all. Truth.

The amount of women talking in sports to the amount of women who have something to say is one of the most disproportionate ratios I’ve ever seen in my life. But here’s a message for all of them…All of this, all of this world of sports, especially the sport of football, has a setting. It’s set to men.

Welp. Here’s yet another douchebro in radio who seems to think the only way he can make a name for himself in a media industry that’s slowly dying is to be as repugnant and offensive as possible. Look, I could sit here and post hyperlinks extolling the success of awesome female athletes all day, but do we really need to even work that hard to show that this guy is full of shit? I don’t think so.

Listen to his full rant, if you want. Or if you ate some food last night that doesn’t agree with you and you need help getting it all out of your system.
