From Twitter:

Listening to Tony Kornheiser's comments/rant on ESPN radio re: cyclists. Disgusting, ignorant, foolish. What a complete f-ing idiot.
Tony Kornheiser on cyclists on the road, "run 'em down". Really? Big mistake, Tony.
Have a listen. ESPN 980 - Home of the Redskins. Listen to the March 11, part 1 segment and go to 30 mins in. #whatapunkasschump
Sounds like this Tony Kornheiser needs a good beatdown...

Yep, looks that way, most likely it got yanked after a ton of complaints. Hats off to ESPN for yanking it, now hopefully they'll can this whack job once and for all...

I think keeping it on the air would have ensured his removal from espn. Has any one found the actual recording yet? I looked and couldn't.

Here is a youtube clip that has the audio of Tony Kornhole's cycling rant...

And seeing this clip reminded me why he got suspended. He was ripping on one of his female coworkers for her dress. I can't remember off hand what he specifically said about her, but it clearly must have been bad for ESPN to suspend the idiot.

The comment that got him suspended was calling Hannah Storm a "skank".

This ongoing vomit should get him fired, blackballed, or chased out of town by the mob with torches and pitchforks. (Hey, I can dream, can't I?)

BikeForums.net has a thread with a transcript of it; caught it the other day. Kornholer is a good nickname for this fool.

...just off the phone w/ Tony Kornheiser who's very sorry 4 his comments re: cyclists. Going on the show 2morrow 2 discuss this w/ him.
This could be interesting...

ESPN has removed the Kornheiser audio archive from their website. You can still hear it here. Small victory i guess. http://ow.ly/1nXfQ
Ahh, behold the power of social networking...

Just finished listening to the podcast, and found this tweet from Levi...

Sounds like that Tony Kornhoser guy got what he wanted, a bunch of attention and an interview with @lancearmstrong. Never heard of him B4!
Interview seemed civil, but it looks like that dude will have some new nicknames now...

OK, so maybe he got a clue; it sounds like he did, he seems to be a bit 'nervous' about the amount of attention and outrage he generated by being an idiot.

I WILL accept the apology, but I wouldn't join the ride-and-a-beer with Armstrong; don't think I'd be civil enough.

Has anyone caught Bob Roll's response on Versus.com? It was a good one!

Sorry, tried/failed to add link....
