    MIAMI --Comments made by TV analyst and former Miami player Lamar Thomas during a sideline-clearing brawl involving the Hurricanes and Florida International will be edited out before the game is replayed later this week.

    Thomas may also lose his job with Comcast Sports SouthEast, a regional cable network available in 5.5 million homes.

    ``We will take appropriate disciplinary action,'' CSS general manager Mark Fuhrman said Monday. The network will replay the game Wednesday.

    Wonder if Thomas said the "n" word.

    He was on the Big Show with Dan and Keith today. The broadcast was comical.

    That's what you get for the explaining U of Miami mentality:

    "Now, that's what I'm talking about," Thomas said as the brawl raged out of control. "You come into our house, you should get your behind kicked. You don't come into the OB playing that stuff. You're across the ocean over there. You're across the city. You can't come over to our place talking noise like that. You'll get your butt beat. I was about to go down the elevator to get in that thing."

    Good grief. I'm having a big O.J. trial flashback.

    I'm sure Lamar will be joining him on the unemployment line shortly.

    Lamar also must not have noticed that the UM guys were getting the worst of it. That means Miami has been punked twice in fights -- to LSU in last year's Peach Bowl, and not to FIU.

    Boom, I thought about the same thing with Psycho. Keeping Lamar on the broadcast would be letting the animals run the zoo. Which is pretty much the players at The U has reverted back into doing.

    Even Lou Piniella thinks that messed up to keep Lamar who has to be one of the O.G.'s in Coral Gables.

    Well that's a board first... I had a mildly humorous O.J.-related title line... and some Mod-aho type must have gone in there and changed it to this.

    Has anyone had a moddy change one of their posts?

    Without so much as a whisper of a head's up?
