ESPN anchor disciplined after roast rant
Associated Press
January 24, 2008, 4:18 AM EST



NEW YORK (AP) - Insults are the goal of roasts, and plenty were zinged around during a charity dinner held to skewer two ESPN radio hosts earlier this month.

Dana Jacobson is being disciplined for remarks made during a roast of ESPN radio hosts Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic. (ESPN, Lorenzo Bevilaqua / Associated Press)
One of the network's anchors went too far.

Dana Jacobson, co-host of the "ESPN First Take" morning show, was disciplined by her employer after an expletive-laden speech. The Chicago Tribune reported she was suspended one week.

ESPN commentators shared the stage with actors and athletes Jan. 11 in Atlantic City to celebrate the eighth anniversary of "Mike & Mike in the Morning" co-hosts Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg. The whole point was to spout off edgy jokes, but what's OK for comedians Eddie Griffin and Jeffrey Ross may not be appropriate for ESPN announcers seeking to be both entertainers and journalists.

Asked whether the network planned to rethink its policy regarding employees taking part in such events, ESPN spokesman Mike Soltys said, "We won't be participating in another roast anytime soon."

Jacobson's speech included obscenities aimed at Notre Dame, with Irish football coach Charlie Weis in attendance.

An article in The Press of Atlantic City the next day said that Jacobson "made an absolute fool of herself, swilling vodka from a Belvedere bottle, mumbling along and cursing like a sailor as Mike & Mike rested their heads in their hands in embarrassment." She was booed off the stage.

In a statement released through ESPN, Jacobson called her comments about Notre Dame "foolish and insensitive."

"My actions at the roast were inappropriate and in no way represent who I really am," she said. "I have personally apologized to many of the people involved. I won't make excuses for my behavior but do hope that I can be forgiven for such a poor lack of judgment."

ESPN released a statement calling her actions and comments inappropriate. Soltys said the network doesn't comment on personnel matters beyond saying she was disciplined.

Notre Dame spokesman Dennis Brown said, "While we in no way condone Ms. Jacobson's comments, we're aware of the circumstances in which they occurred, and, in the interest of forgiveness, trust that she and ESPN have addressed the matter in an appropriate way."
Given the fact that D Jake looks like a friggin Clydesdale and should probably be on the team that pulls the Anheiser-Busch sled, I don't know that she really was in a position to roast anyone.


^^ She's got more chin than Jay Leno...

Eddie Griffin said he knew his career was over when he was asked to roast two white guys he never fucking heard of before. But here's a short clip of Jeff Ross' part.

The bit about Mike Ditka was pretty funny. Oh well.

What'd she say? I can't imagine what she would've said that would really make people pissed at a fucking roast.

The quoted things I saw were "Fuck Notre Dame," "Fuck Touchdown Jesus," and "Fuck Jesus."

She had some words for Charlie Weis and was, as reports call it, "Visibly drunk" apparently she'd been slugging vodka straight from the bottle throughout the evening.

Late.

Somebody should tell that bitch roasting involves segways and punchlines not just saying "FUCK!" to everything.

Gotta love how she went all the way with "Fuck Jesus." What a psycho.

Fact: a roast is designed for insults, and the world insulting is synonymous with offensive. Fact: while we're talking about lack of judgement, let's not forget that someone gave this woman an open mic. Not exactly a bright idea. Overall, I'd say it's not a big deal, and definitely not worth complaining about.

Speaking of roasts, awhile back I found out that during the Flavor Flav roast on Comedy Central, Jimmy Kimmel said that Chris Benoit was a better father than Flav. That roast happened shortly after the double murder suicide, and the joke was so tasteless that it was cut from the broadcast. I was like "oh shit" when I read that.

A week or so ago, at like 2 in the morning, Comedy Central aired the unedited version of that roast...and the joke was in there...

the only version I ever saw had the Chris Benoit joke....

Actually, I think we had a discussion thread for it when it first aired...

I'm pretty sure either Myself or Dave mentioned it like right after they said it.
