Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

TMZ has the full quote from Myers, who tried to humorously correlate what it must be like for linebacker Larry Foote to go from the Super Bowl champion Steelers to the coldness of the D.

He said, "Going from two Super Bowls in Pittsburgh to the winless Detroit team — that's like going from dating Beyonce to Whoopi Goldberg."


I imagine either Fox Sports or Myers are cobbling together an insincere apology that will probably be shuffled around to the various media outlets offended by his comment, lest Myers wants to become a piñata on The Viewfor the rest of the week.

I don't think it's a comment that will get him fired, but a statement containing the words "regret," "insensitive," and "poor taste" should be forthcoming before the day is over. I know they're the Detroit Lions, but they still have feelings.
