    The two commentators who made light of his name are African-American. Can you imagine if they were white guys?

      I thought it was all a big nothingburger and blown out of proportion​​​​​, but as usual, the Mrs. disagrees…




      P.S. Definitely ‘steerage class’ announcers.

        If Poo was a white guy, wouldn't have been an issue either

          I hadn't heard what was actually said so I pulled it up a bit ago.

          Definitely not racist. But most definitely ignorant and came off very poor.

          I could understand why Poor Bear, or other Native Americans, might have been put off by that. They're a proud people in general and I could see their comments and laughter as being disrespectful and insulting. Again, I don't think they intended anything and I don't think they were out to make fun of him or his heritage, they were just dumb asses that didn't know any better and nobody had done any research.

          I would think that as a professional you would do a rundown of the rosters and if something like that jumped out at you, you might do a little research or ask some questions. These two dildos apparently did neither.

          Now, is it as bad as what Mr. Gates has run with on Twitter? No. Should an apology have been made? Absolutely. At the very least, they disrespected him on national TV. And once you know and understand the context of this name, and why he has chosen to run with Poor Bear on his jersey instead of Chandler, it's obvious how important the name and his heritage is to him.

            To me the bad part was they said multiple times "How cool it was that HCIB let him put 'Pooh Bear' on his jersey". Ignoring the fact that they said his name wrong but basically saying that it was an exception to put his actual name on the jersey because it was "different'
