Tony Grossi has been suspended after apparently calling Baker Mayfield a “f***ing midget” during a show on ESPN Cleveland WKNR.

Grossi made the comment while the mics were still hot during a discussion about NFL quarterbacks, according to bustedcoverage.com.

Good Karma Brands issued a statement Tuesday about the incident.

“The term Tony used is a derogatory slur to describe Little People. Good Karma Brands will not tolerate derogatory language that demeans others or groups of people,” the company said Tuesday in a media release.

The new LA Rams logo leaked online and is beyond terrible.

Here's a critique that Pyrrho can appreciate.

All jokes aside, it is not bad other than there is nothing about it that says "LA Rams."

Art directors, graphic artists, and lettering men. None of this newfangled "designer" malarkey.

I was going to ask which one of their failed at their job and cropped people's heads out; but I suspect they were cropped due them having "Afros".

A lot of folks want it to be The Cleveland Guardians, named after the art deco statuary on the Hope Memorial Bridge. But someone pointed out that the sculptor had done a bas-relief depicting a white guy taking a sword to a Native American so that won't work.

The should call the team "The Cleveland Wahoos" and have done with it, although The Cleveland Flats would work too.
