San Francisco sports radio host Damon Bruce blamed women and "sensitive guys" for ruining sports on his Thursday broadcast.
Ironically, many of his offensive quotes were transcribed by sportswriter Wendy Thrum for BayAreaSportsGuy.com.
Additionally, some of the audio (below) from his show was recorded and posted online by AwfulAnnouncing.com.
“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,” Bruce said on KNBR-AM. “For some of you, this is going to come across as very misogynistic. I don’t care, because I’m very right.”
Bruce also defended Miami Dolphins player Richie Incognito, who allegedly threatened and used racial slurs against teammate Jonathan Martin.
“That’s why guys like Richie Incognito exist." stated Bruce. "Jonathan Martin is distracting in the locker room more than Incognito. A lot of the problem is based in Jonathan Martin’s inability to deal with a professional locker room environment."
However, a report surfaced today that Incognito allegedly sexually harassed a female volunteer at a golf tournament last year in Florida.
“I enjoy many of the women’s contributions to the sports,” Bruce stated during his show. “Well that’s a lie. 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. 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 fricking life.”
“Message for all the women, all the guidance counselors, the sensitive males, all of this world of sports, especially the world of football, has a setting," added Bruce. "It’s set to men. Women, ladies, sensitive guys, you can observe, be offended, report on it all. But we’re not changing it for you.”
"There is a serious group of you fellas out there that have just been so feminized by the sensitive types out there who continue to now interject their ultra-feminine sensitive opinions into the world of sports," said Bruce.
Bruce played the victim on Twitter this morning when he tweeted: “Good morning to everyone! Twitter lynch mob wants me hanged by my neck, till I’m dead!”
KNBR-AM has not responded yet to the San Francisco Chronicle's requests for a comment.
