ESPN Will Not Tolerate Sexism, Unless it's Hilarious or Comes from Brett Favre

During a pre-production meeting for this year’s Fiesta Bowl, ESPN broadcaster Ron Franklin decided to try out some classic misogyny on sideline reporter Jeannine Edwards. Thanks to a lack of creative mockery, producers promptly told him to go home and practice his chauvinism without pay/healthcare benefits until it gets better.

Franklin, who sounds like a real catch for all you single ladies who don’t want to be burdened with opinions or self-confidence, was suspended hours before the game following some playful banter with his co-worker.

“Why don’t you leave this to the boys, sweetcakes,” he told Edwards after she attempted to join the conversation.

Don’t call me sweetcakes, I don’t like being talked to like that,” Edwards responded.

Franklin fired back with the classic sitcom line, “OK then, a**hole.”

Even with a small laugh track in the background the joke fell on deaf ears. Franklin was asked to leave the premises and told he would not be broadcasting the Fiesta Bowl (or any other games) for a while.

Perhaps his time away from the office will afford him the opportunity to research more contemporary ways to set the women’s movement back 50 years in the sports world. (Perhaps he can give Erin Andrews a call if he can’t think of anything.)
