    I'd say the internet will provide that beat down. So long Tony Kornheiser!

    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...

    Didn't Mr. Kornheiser just get suspended recently for something he said on air? I can't recall what it was though....Anyone know what it was for?????

    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.

    Amazing. Glad Lance got a hold of it. His single tweet will probably do more than every single forum, blog, website discussing it.

    You can listen to it here. I've downloaded it, I'm listening to it as I type this.

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

    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....
