    I think she's written things prior which warranted suspension.

    Can someone translate that to English?

    He wanted Hill fired for the Celtics comment, because she said Imus should be fired for the Rutgers comment.

    I could see that argument, but that's not the one he's making if he says "It has nothing to do with what she said. It has nothing to do with what Imus said."

    The comment was dumb but nothing like what Imus said and should not be compared with it.

    I think Oz has it right. Toucher just failed to express his point of view clearly enough.

    Good for Imus...Hill's a hypocrite.

    Neither deserved punishment IMO.

    I don't think Hill tied her Hitler reference to anyone in particular compared to Imus who tied the term nappy headed hoes to a group of innocent girls.

    Anyway, I thought she sucked for long while. She should've been put down like Barbaro after she wrote an article basically blaming Darrent Williams for being a victim of gun fire.

    Well she did kinda tie it to Celtic fans.
